Re: Triple Play 2000 (N64)

Strangely enough, I frequently used the Cubs on this game, as Kerry Wood was fantastic. Thanks for bringing back some great memories! Haha, unfortunately, Wood tore his UCL during 1999 spring training and had to have Tommy John surgery. As such, he missed the entire season. Fortunately the rosters ...

Triple Play 2000 (N64)

I think I found it! A good N64 sports title! Took me a while, but I think we have ourselves a winner. Actually, I knew about this game, since I originally played it when I was 17. Being that I was 17, you'd think that I have a good drug story to go with it. And I do. But it's a little too intense fo...

Bases Loaded 3 (NES)

I remember my mother would take me to Blockbuster on a Friday night, then often we would head on over to a TCBY in the same plaza to get a frozen yogurt. We'd go home, watch Full House and Urkel on TGIF, then I'd go and play whichever game we rented. Such were my Friday nights in the early 90s. Many...

Ice Climbers (NES)

I never played this one as a kid, but recently decided to give it a whirl. You know what, it's pretty good once you get used to the wonky jumping control. Which, unfortunately, takes quite a while. But that's the thing, as a kid, I think I was a little more willing to learn and to invest time into a...

Re: 2019/6/7: Genesis: Last Battle, Paperboy II

I thought that the Paperboy 2 on the NES and SNES were atrocious. But then they released the Genesis version about half a year after the SNES, so maybe they had time to iron out the kinks.

Re: I hate listening to the news. Anyone else?

I simply must hear more about Jussie Smollett, abortion, Trump, and the Kardashians!

Re: In Praise of Short Games

Activision games are short, yet I'll find myself up until the wee hours of the morning playing Pitfall, Call of Duty, or River Raid.

Re: Super Mario Maker

Recently started playing this again, since I'm getting bored of my typical repertoire of games. It really is enjoyable, since it's basically new levels for all the games I played and loved. Some levels are cleverly designed, others, not so much. But I recommend giving this one a whirl again.

Re: Making a Mess (photo)

As I said in another thread, sometimes less is more. We had to declutter to get our townhouse ready for listing, and I'll never go back to having each and every system I own hooked up. From now on I'm only keeping the systems I play the most hooked up while keeping the ones I only play once in a whi...

I would advise not writing that until you've played "Touchdown Fever" on the NES.
