Re: My job sucks because...

I dishwash. The people and benefits are nice (I get free food), but it's dishwashing. It's gonna suck. I'm probably the highest paid dishwasher on the planet, as its part of my job and all of the chefs that work under me. There's no such thing as being too good to wash dishes in my kitchen, and no ...

Re: My job sucks because...

My entire career, pre and post coin-op amusements operator and pool hall/arcade owner, has sucked. My degreed profession is as a chef, and I burned out early (1997), so I went into business with a friend of mine for about 6 years. He has been in coin-op all of his life (and still is), and I was task...

Re: Obscure Systems

Thanks Fusemigames. I kept meaning to answer Sut's query, but I hadn't yet. Also, those Video Pinball Units are not expensive, so if the resistor surgery doesn't pan out, maybe you can snag the woodgrain model. The surgery should be successful, as I've tested it extensively, found the bad one, and ...

Re: The trash that is on Amazon Prime

Starcrash is such trash. Cheesy acting, bad special effects, David Hasselhoff... I love it.

Re: Obscure Systems

I'll add one more - its also part of the Atari Video Pinball unit along with the pinball variants (some use flippers, some use a pong paddle) and the breakout/breakthrough, and that's BASKETBALL. What makes this different from a pong game (although its obviously is descended from it, is that you *b...

Re: Star wars the last jedi

I liked it. It was a different arc than what many were expecting, so there's a lot of negativity going around about it. Personally, I expected the negativity, as whining has become par for the course these days, and it cannot be avoided without just shutting everything down and sitting in a dark roo...

Re: Photos of old arcade games

My old basement arcade collection, circa 1999 (Circus, Anti-Aircraft, Breakout, Tank, Monaco GP): http://atari.vg-network.com/public/col1.jpg Here are a couple of pictures of the labs at General Computing, the company that created Ms. Pacman/Crazy Otto. The first is the Food Fight development hardwa...

Re: Just how bad are the Star Wars prequels?

I thought that they were just OK back when they came out in the theater. Nevertheless, I saw each one three times in their day. These days, I avoid the originals, as I've got the Q2 fan edits of each of them, and they're actually watchable. The edits cut out almost an hour of cringe-worthy dialog, s...
