  1. This was actually lunch, but sometimes I have it for dinner. 3 eggs, a sausage patty, a hashbrown patty, served on Eggo cinnamon toasts.
  2. Watch out @ZeldaFan042, @Jeevan's got his eye on that top spot!
  3. I like it too, I tried being a bassist in college and I didn't know anything about how to make it sound any good. And who knew Jerry Seinfeld played the bass? I guess thinking about the Seinfeld intro, it makes sense...
  4. Haaa I forgot about Mystery Men. All Star is always the Shrek song anymore. I don't know if I've ever heard Youngblood inside a Buffalo Wild Wings, but it sounds like a 100% fit. Prime BWW music. I guess that's not a bad thing though.
  5. If I remember right, it got patched in later revisions of Link's Awakening. But you could hit Select right as Link hit the edge of the screen, and in the animation of shifting everything to show Link at the opening of the different, destination screen, (if you did it right,) the screen/level would shift but not Link. So I could cross uncrossable gaps by leaving a screen, then still being on that same side of the next screen over. If that makes sense. It allowed me to finish the dungeon and beat the game, and I've always sort of feared those later revisions, because I honestly can't remember if
  6. I'm pretty sure I remember now, there's a character who takes the bananas and gives you the item Bowwow wants, but I won't spoil it. I guess I could look it up if I want validation. And I did that same thing in the 4-pillars dungeon as a kid. I couldn't figure out how to legitimately get through it, even leaving and coming back in to try and reset the ball you have to break the pillars with. Eventually I learned about the select-warp glitch and got through it, lol.
  7. I don't know what's up with the Netherlands, but pretty much all of my Game Boy enthusiast buddies that are in Europe, are in the Netherlands. They're always finding multiple shops and sellers selling GB games for good deals, meeting up with each other, and the GB scene is just hoppin' over there. Meanwhile, I don't know a single other GB fan in all of AZ. So if I ever have to flee the country, that's where I'm going, and I'm bringing a Game Boy.
  8. Hah, I'm trying to remember the steps in the Zelda trading sequence. I remember the monkey gets a stick for beating down a honeycomb, so the bananas must go to someone else. I've always thought it was a little weird for game hardware/controllers to dictate the use of buttons or controls, like calling a button Start, even though almost every game also uses it as a Pause button. And I very rarely press Select to select something, but I've used it for plenty of other things in various games. The Amiga CD32 controller seems to have a basic idea of what every button "should" be used for, thoug
  9. Ok. It's done, I polished off Vanilla Jeopardy! and Jeopardy! Platinum Edition. Luckily the CPU was back to its old tricks of failing its way into the negative and pretty much staying there. There, that's 28 games in February. There have been so many games I wanted to play, but didn't because I didn't know if they would be quick enough. Now I'm going to spend a long time beating games I've never beaten before. I've never really taken a dive into the Mega Man games, (and they're on my backlog in that other thread,) so I'm going to check those out. Also I want to play the Spiderman games fo
  10. Make no mistake, I usually let the CPU run the game and shoot itself in the foot ("ZWXYZ" over and over) but I lost on my first attempt because I let the computer play most of the game, and it actually lucked out and beat me. The second time through, I tried a little harder, and I got two Daily Doubles on a category I remembered from the first game So that got my score nice and high, and it's a good thing it did, because the computer played really well again. Usually it goes into Final Jeopardy with just a couple thousand.
  11. Ahahaha @Floating Platforms already did Teen Tournament! Of all the Jeopardy games I could have grabbed, that's the one that's been done already lol. Ok, I'll probably grab 2 other Jeopardy games to finish out the month.
  12. Beat Hudson Hawk and Jeopardy Teen Tournament. And now for the joke I make every year: don't believe the Jeopardy screenshot. It is not a great game.
  13. "questionable" is right. Who is browsing HA that isn't browsing eBay? And how are there enough of them to drive the prices that high? Is eBay for plebs and they, for whom money is no object, just can't be bothered?
