  1. Yeah, it is. The AV Famicom has the port for the keyboard built right in. I think that would be so much fun. Wrecking Crew is probably the most customizable one. It saves up to four levels at a time and allows you to name them. Lots of potentialfor people to create interesting worlds.
  2. I just like to give people the benefit of the doubt.
  3. @karljobstIf you're still here, that video was amazing. Thank you so much for showing the general public what is going on. As for arguing with people that are invested heavily in all this, we need to consider the fact that these are essentially crime victims. They're going to be in denial for awhile and there's nothing anyone could do or say to show them the truth if the Jobst video didn't already convince them.
  4. Thank you so much. I had a pretty great day. Played some games with my daughter and watched some movies.
  5. 5/10 Donkey Kong Country doesn't click with me. I think it's a quality game, but I personally don't like it. I'll play it every couple of years to see if my mind is going to change and it doesn't. I think a lot of it has to do with the Jungle/Monkey theme of the game. I'm not a fan of that kinda stuff. Yeah, it's petty, but it is what it is.
  6. ehhh.... I've had batteries meant for game boy cartridges hanging out in my work shop since like 2016 . It's kind of experiment at this point.. I wanna see how many years they last in a desert climate. There are over 100 days per year hear where it is over 100 degrees outside. My workshop has no climate control. So far they're fine. I have no intention to use them for cartridges, don't worry. I keep the batteries I use for replacements in my house.
  7. The fact that so many exist in this condition indicates to me that they're being pulled from retail cases. I feel really bad for the dude that bought this Mario 64 if it isn't some HA/WATA employee just buying it from themselves. He will never get his ROI.
  8. This is an argument that could be made for or against whether or not it's worth the money it was purchased for. On one hand, it's one of only 5 games of this grade. On the other hand, a grade could be considered subjective and arbitrary.
  9. I think it's because it simply has nothing that appeals to me. It's just a very lifeless game from a presentation standpoint and the physics were bad. The level design wasn't interesting either. I know what you mean though. I could probably get over all of that, as I have with the other games in the series. There's just something extra repellent about the Wii version that I can't put my finger on either.
  10. We don't have a video like that, so I've substituted the closest thing. No. I am not joking. Obviously NSFW. This town isn't exactly the lawless meth riddled trailer park the game portrays it as, but there are a lot of building here that were put in the game in a very, very accurate way. The gas station in the background of this scene for instance. I get gas there sometimes. In real life, this area is more of a quiet retirement community, but at the time they were scouting this place to research for the game, it was going through something of a meth crisis so I guess it makes sense they'd do this. Based on some of the stuff they put in the game, I'm guessing they were doing research in 2008 or 2009.
  11. The Wii, along with the Nintendo 64, are the two consoles that I vividly remember the first time I ever played them because of how revolutionary they were. That being said, I don't find either console to be particularly great. I didn't really jive with anything on the Wii. My best memories of it are in summer of 2011. I would get high as fuck every night and playing Bit.Trip.Runner and Mega Man 10. I thought that Mario Galaxy was alright, and I kind of enjoyed Skyward Sword until I realized it thought I was stupid. Oh, I also beat Earthbound on it for the first time through homebrew. I really like the look of the hardware, and I really like the concept of the motion control stuff. In practice, itl was probably best used in Metroid Prime 3. I really loved the online features that the console had. I think it was the first console I ever hooked up to the internet, so it was new and exciting in that sense. I only had dial up internet at the time, so I had to jump through hoops to get it to work. Games were pretty hit and miss though. I found a lot of them to be very....bland.... For instance, New Super Mario Bros. Wii is the only 2D Mario game I've played that to this day I know for certain I will never, ever play again. Animal Crossing City Folk just plain sucked ass and was nowhere close to the quality of it's Gamecube predecessor. Even Smash was pretty lame compared to the Gamecube one. I don't know what it is, exactly. I just don't like it. I mean yeah, they put Sonic in there, but his moveset was bad and they barely had any content from his series to show off. Speaking of Sonic, Sonic and the Secret Rings was the second Wii game I ever played and I remember thinking that the bad controls in the game were just me not understanding motion control yet. I don't know how history will view the Wii. It looks like the people that grew up with it remember it fondly. I personally think it's one of Nintendo's weakest consoles. I still like it but I don't love it.
  12. I really like this movie. It's not a masterpiece by any means, but it's entertaining. It also has the distinction of being appealing to non fans of video games. I remember most of my family digging this movie back when it came out because of how ridiculous it was. I think it helps that you can tell that everyone involved in making it seemed to be having a great time. That infectious sense of fun and joy bleeds out of the screen and makes up for the distinct lack of regular bleeding that you'd expect from a Mortal Kombat movie. I really do hope that the new movie doesnt take the source material too seriously. I think the series lore was meant to be taken with a grain of salt. The writers were in on the joke, so to speak. If the reboot movie ends up being edgy and grimdark I don't think it'll be as well regarded as this one is. 6/10
  13. I primarily use the lighter six switch model. It's RF output is terrible, but I don't expect quality from it to begin with. I also have a Coleco Gemini. It's a more modern design and has better switches on it. Great RF output too. That being said, good luck finding one that doesn't need some kind of repair. It's nothing difficult if you know how to solder, though.
  14. The judgemental tone was unintentional. It was a sloppy way of saying "people aspire for different things".
  15. Micro Mages is great. If you buy it on Steam, they provide a ROM for you to put on an Everdrive. There's also a very, very good port of Berserk out there, the guy only wants a couple bucks for the ROM. I can't seem to find a link. Battle Kid is very good, but extremely hard. My number one piece of advice is to get yourself an Everdrive if you want to play Homebrew though. There are several instances where you can buy the ROM from the devs who made the game.
