Re: Who didn't own a NES in the 80's?

I think my experience is similar to Dave's, Pong (clone) in the late 70's, 2600 in the early 80's, Atari 800XL about 1985...which lasted through college (gotta love a VT52 terminal emulator running through a 300 baud modem!) No new video game hardware until getting a Game Gear in about 1993. Needles...

Re: Free Xbox Hardware Plan?

Didn't Microsoft try something like this year's ago? Get an Xbox 360 (or maybe it was the original Xbox) console for a certain amount each month if you sign-up for two or three years of Xbox Live? Maybe you just got the console cheaper up-front if you agreed to a fairly lengthy Live contract... Does...

Re: NES Classic best selling console

I guess I'm partly to blame... WallyWorld had a few a week ago, so I bought one. I don't even care for many NES games (I'm an old 2600 guy). But it's got good Donkey Kong/Pac Man/Galaga... Weird how this stuff works-out..

Re: Random pinball question (from late 1980s)

I did some Goggling, looking for things like "bride of Frankenstein pinball" (found a lot of Frankenstein related stuff, as well as "bride of Pinbot" pinball), no luck. Then tried looking for "mad scientist pinball", and after scrolling down through a bunch of images ma...

Random pinball question (from late 1980s)

Just curious, but do any of you remember a pinball machine from the late 80's that had a "bride of Frankenstein" vibe...artwork had the bride (pale chick) and a scientist (and/or) Igor? Used to play it in the late 80's, but cannot remember the name. Recent pinball arcade posts brought this...

Re: is it worth it to buy the nintendo switch now ?

Guess I'll play devil's advocate on this one. IF you have a Wii U (and I do), the Switch has little compelling offerings. I've got Mario Cart 8, Zelda, Fast Racing Neo, Shantae, Steamworld, Splatoon (1), Donkey Kong Country, Axiom Verge, and numerous other Wii U short-term exclusives. Only the new M...

Re: Game/Movie collection tracking app?

I've got to admit, I was hoping to not have to type all of the game names in :D Maybe I'll just buck-up and use a spreadsheet. I had one years ago, but it's been lost to the sands of time (or a hard-drive failure.)

Keep the suggestions coming, though!

Game/Movie collection tracking app?

Do any of you use some sort of android app to keep track of your games and/or movies? I hate it when I'm out at a retro game store and can't remember whether I already own a certain game (or own it for a different console.)

Re: Baseball in Decline?

I don't have cable, and don't live near a MLB team, so the best I can do is to watch a few of the televised minor-league games on the local station that plays them (Charlotte Knights games.) I do (usually) watch playoff and World Series games in the fall when they are on. I like watching baseball, i...
