  1. I hate chewing gum and that includes things like Blow-pops. Gum has flavor at first but then loses it and then you're stuck with tasteless rubber. I much prefer 'gummie' candies like gummy-bears, sour-worms, sour peaches, jelly beans, starburst, etc.
  2. I remember that one! Did anyone here in the forums actually own and play with the NES Sattelite?
  3. I play games on my Sony Tablet S. I'm planning on getting an Android phone for games any suggestions? I'm thinking the Sony Xperia Play.
  4. I voted both. Personally at my age I like digital because it saves up space in my home. I'm not much of a collector so I don't need the physical media. Most of the games I play today are on PC or Android tablet/phone. HOWEVER (and this is why I clicked both) I only like DRM-free digital, like open-source games (Cube, Frogatto, Red Eclipse). None of this you need an internet connection to play a game nonsense.
  5. Another really cool use of Everdrive is to play recently made ROM-hacks on your original hardware, however some hacks won't work because of technical limitations (a classic example is Super Mario Star Road for N64). Of course, to legally patch-play ROM-hacks you have to dump your own ROM-files but you can find dumpers online.
  6. Great Topic! My list Atari 2600 Atari 7800 Atari Jaguar COLECO Colecovision Mattel Intellivision Microsoft XBox Microsoft XBox 360 (college roommate) Nintendo NES Nintendo SNES Nintendo N64 Nintendo Gamecube (only at friend's house, never owned it) Sega Master System Sega Genesis Sega CD Sega 32X Sega Dreamcast Sony Playstation (at friends house) Sony Playstation 2 (at friends house) Nintendo Gameboy Nintendo Gameboy Color Nintendo Gameboy Advance (at the store) Nintendo Virtualboy PC DOS PC Win 95/98/ME PC Win Vista/7/8.1 PC Linux Mint
  7. At some point in the future it will end because a. collectors will hoard all the carts/cds/etc. and b. the physical media will eventually degrade from age (but that's going to be a LOOOOOOOOONG TIME!). It won't matter though because younger generations will be able to play the games via company-sanctioned emulation (Virtual Console).
  8. Congrats to MetalJesus on the find. In fairness to Nintendo, the 64 had A LOT of great games: Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Perfect Dark, Paper Mario, etc. I'm curious since the 64DD came with a keyboard and mouse, if a version of Linux could be developed to run on the N64 platform.
  9. Bootsy (AVGN and Mike Matei's friend) beats Battletoads (TIPS+STRATEGIES for anyone here)
  10. Let's see: 1. Virtual Boy 2. 32X 3. The pre-mature announcement of the Dreamcast, which meant most developers stopped making games for Saturn.
  11. I'm not sure if my earliest gaming memory was with the Atari 2600 or the NES. I remember being 5 or 6 and my first NES games being Top Gun (landing the plane ) and Metal Mech (which is awful) Then I got Street Fighter 2020 and Mafat Conspiracy, both of which aren't top-shelf but pretty decent.
  12. I'm part of the generation where comics was becoming less a part of young people's lives, although I'm familiar with all main comic-book heroes from the cartoons (Batman: Animated Series and 90s Spiderman) and of course the comic-book movies from 1989-present (both Batman series, X-Men, Spider Man trilogy). Oh, and I can't forget, games based on comic-book properties like the excellent Punisher arcade game! One comic book that I liked was the Archie Sonic comics, at least from the start (1993) to 2002. The series starts off based on the SatAM cartoon but eventually went into its own direction. I especially LOVE the period from 1994-1999, after S&K but before Sonic Adventure when there wasn't any big Sonic game, so they had original plots & characters.
  13. Wired UK has a good weekly tech podcast. TED talks also has podcasts. Lastly, Off-The-Grid radio has a nice 30 min. weekly podcast about gardening/farming.
  14. For me it's either Super Mario Bros. Movie (yes I LoL at how detached it is from the source material) or the first Mortal Kombat movie.
  15. Do less people play on the PC on consoles? I would be surprised if that's the case. Installing PC games is a hell of a lot easier than in the 90s. Other than current-gen titles, most laptops <$500 have the power to play most games that are sold and of course the indy games.
