Re: Your top 10 cartoons of all time

Fun thread, but gluh, I have to pick ten?? I guess my favorites would be... 1. The Real Ghostbusters. Nothing comes close. I was a huge Ghostbusters nerd as a kid (though not so much now in adulthood) and had so many of the toys and props that Kenner pumped out in the 80s. I was a Ghostbuster for Ha...

Re: Make Me Laugh

Heh, nicely done, L&P! Saw this post last night but wound up getting a little distracted, for obvious reasons. I don't normally link to YouTube vids, but this one always gets a laugh out of the wife and I. It's a recent-ish SNL sketch, and takes about four minutes start to finish. Enjoy! https:/...

Re: Favorite Game Over Screens

Some of my favorites that haven't been mentioned so far are "Continue" screens moreso than "Game Over" screens. Final Fight and Nightshade (NES) come to mind, as both have the protagonist tied up and close to meeting certain doom. Pressing Start drops the knife that cuts the fuse...

Re: Christmas Loot 2019

I got myself Games pass ultimate. Heh, I got that, too! I took the dive on the "three months for $1" deal. I mean, at that price, why the hell not?? My wife likes the Untitled Goose Game. I downloaded the Xbox One port of Resident Evil 4, and had a good time playing it for a few hours. Ho...

Re: Will Disney+ kill physical media?

I do believe however there is a HUGE percentage of people who don't embrace all this new digital technology. You just don't hear from them because they aren't running their mouths on the internet all day. I happen to think the number of people who play video games offline is a lot bigger than most ...

Re: Will Disney+ kill physical media?

They said "the only people who still buy DVDs are the same people who still write paper checks" (guilty as well). Heh. You and me both, buddy! Kind of like me being upset if I can’t get a copy of Interstellar on VHS. Lol. I love this comment. Thing is, there *is* a way for you to have a V...

Re: Christmas Loot 2019

Retro Gamer magazine subscription Jealous, sir. I got what I always get for Xmas - nothing! But for Hanukkah... My wife and I have a tradition where we give each other photos every day of Hanukkah. I'll leave the details to your imagination. Might not sound like a big deal, but we never send / give...

Re: Which sound effects would best represent your gaming nostalgia?

Heh, the OG Final Fantasy has so many iconic sounds for me, as I played the effff out of that game when I was a tween. The dialogue box sound never bothered me that much, but as far as sounds I liked from that game, the sound of spells being cast (especially the LIT spells) was always so satisfying....

Re: Best Game--Every Decade

Lots of good info there, TPG. Burger used to (or still does?) have a Q&A channel on YouTube called Burger Time where she'd address various projects she'd handled over the years. One of my takeaways from one of the videos echoes your comments, talking about how out-of-touch the publisher of the 3...
