Re: T & C Surf Designs (NES)

I got to admit, I love reading your takes on games. They are always humorous and personable. Well done. Thanks, I really appreciate the compliment. Always was a royal pain when I was a kid. Nowadays, I'm the drinking catalyst of the neighborhood. I'll be out with the dog, and everyone I run into, I...

T & C Surf Designs (NES)

This was the "cool" game of the late 1980s, at least on the street I grew up on. In the morning, I would go over to my neighbor's house before and after school where they babysat me until I got home. They had a boy a year older than me who had this game. But we never really clicked. I'm no...

Playing consoles outside ?

Anyone ever done this? We just had some work done on our patio, and I sure would love to take a TV and PS4 out there and play a game of The Show. It'd be as if I were actually taking Joe Maddon's place in the Cubs dugout (Or a actually, the late Don Zimmer's, since I tend to use the 1989 rosters). M...

Re: Goal! (NES)

This turned out to be a fantastic World Cup, and I think I might switch my team from Germany to Croatia, since I'm of distant German descent while my father in law was from Split, Croatia. The day they beat England to get to the finals, we visited his grave and put a Croatian flag. He would have bee...

Sonic the Hedgehog (Genesis)

I remember when I was a kid, they'd write our detentions on carbon paper, and they gave us the yellow copy to get signed by your parents. Perhaps had I not gotten so many of those yellow slips, I would have had a leg to stand on when I asked my parents for a Sega Genesis back in the early 90s. But I...

Re: Pac Man (Apple II)

You mean to tell me that my father could have bought this for me way back when I was young? We had an Apple II Plus, I think it had like 64k of ram. Best game we had was this poker game where I figured out I could win every time by bluffing the computer. Let's just say it was a good day when he came...

Re: Bases Loaded (NES)

Boston was my favorite team, what's was yours? If we wanted a "fair" game, nobody was allowed to pick Jersey. Similar to Tecmo Bowl, nobody could pick the Raiders or the Niners. Although a buddy of mine who always played with Cleveland was a little *too* good at picking off passes... From...

Re: Bases Loaded (NES)

Boston was my favorite team, what's was yours? Boston as well. Norkus was an absolute beast. Back when I was a kid, I called him "Norkus Dorkus", which for some reason my neighbor got a kick out of. Yesterday we had a real estate agent tour our townhouse that we're getting ready to sell. ...

Re: Adventure hacks (Atari 2600)

I've been looking for a good Zelda-like game, would this be something along those lines?

Cool Boarders 2 (Playstation 1)

This is a neat-o little game! I'm sure we've all heard of Cool Boarders around here, and I remember awhile ago I posted about games you can play for ten minutes. Cool Boarders 2 is definitely one of them. Took me some time to get the hang of doing all the tricks and controls, but I got it before too...
