  1. 10/10 - One of the best action movies ever made. It's hard for me to decide whether or not I like Terminator or Terminator 2 more. They're such vastly different movies with very little in common. For that reason I tend to judge them individually rather than two parts of a set. Had Terminator 2 been more of the same, I don't think it would have been as good. Terminator 2 is probably my favorite movie of all time. I've seen it so many times I've lost count. I cant really think of anything wrong with it. For what it's trying to do, it nails everything almost perfectly. I think the exte
  2. I don't wanna oversell it, but I think The Terminator is a masterpiece. It's got this grit to it, and everything seems to come together perfectly. The future war scenes look amazing for the budget the movie was made with, and Arnold is a far more imposing villain than any other villain in the series. Even the T-1000, which is terrifying in it's own right, doesn't compare. The stop motion at the end of the movie unintentionally drives home the sheer inhumanity of the T-800, and makes it's very existence seem all the more disturbing. This aspect of the character is completely lost in the sequel
  3. It's not unusual. I got a garbage bag full of NES games on Christmas of 2000 or 2001. I would be willing to buy a test station for around 500 bucks at most. I would actively use it though. I don't fully know what it does but I think at this point an everdrive and a socketed console with the bottom cut out is just as useful.
  4. I do this kinda thing for a living so hopefully I can help 1. Yes. There are several different varieties of capacitor. Ceramic, tantalum, and electrolytic being a few examples. The ones we need to consider are the electrolytic capacitors in our consoles. Those are volitile, and have a finite lifespan even when unused. The NES, for example, has a ton of ceramic caps, but only about 8 electrolytics. Those ceramic ones will most likely never need replacing, but the electrolytic ones absolutely will. 2. That really depends. I would generally recommend recapping anything 15 years o
  5. I was born with an NES in my house and I will probably die an old man with several NES' in my house. The reason why is Super Mario Bros.
  6. I haven't seen the channel yet, but just from the description it sounds like something right up my alley. Being able to definitively know what came in these games at retail (aside fromm the obvious) is good from a historical perspective. Thanks for sharing this.
  7. This is (generally speaking) true for CD based media and cartridges that use flash based memory. However, cartridge based games that use mask ROMs will more than likely outlive everyone reading this thread. So long as caps and batteries are maintained as needed. NES carts are absurdly resiliant.
  8. I grew up with both, but I think I've probably spent more time with GBA. From my experience, the SNES ports are hit or miss. The Mario Advance series is not great considering the stages in those games were not designed with the lower resolution GBA screen in mind. Not to mention, half of that series is technically ports of NES games that were also ported to SNES. The GBA Final Fantasy games aren't particularly good either if you're a fan of the sound tracks. The Link to the Past port is pretty good though. Basically, I can definitively say that I'd rather play the SNES versions of anythi
  9. Your videos are really engaging. Subbed!
  10. That thing is absolutely gorgeous. Do you know what that TRS jack labeled "Record" does? Is it an input for the Player 2 mic? If it is, it just gave me an idea.
  11. I started collecting late in 2009. I had just graduated high school and was trying to start an eBay business of sorts that never actually took off. My starting strategy was to buy a bunch of cheap stuff to gain feedback so that people would feel comfortable buying from me. By cheap stuff, I mean NES games mostly. I bought several carts individually for a buck a pop and eventually got it in my head that I should start collecting. Then I found NA, and kind of went berserk for a year. I was living in San Diego, which was rife with NES games at that time. I managed to get around 115 games ov
  12. I'm surprised there are people that don't like Panel De Pon. I don't hold it against them or anything, but I can't fathom how someone could dislike it. It's so incredibly addictive and fun to play.
  13. May I trouble you for a 25+ import badge? This is all my import stuff. There's only 44 things though... for now....
  14. I picked up a Honeybee Family Adapter. I can finally play Famicom Disk System on my NES, if for some reason I decide I just HAVE to do it. These aren't easy to come by, apparently. I've already modded it to allow for passing FDS expansion audio through properly. The build quality on this thing is horrific and I cannot believe it actually works.
