  1. I am leaving LaunchBox effective... well right now

    I've been away while I deal with some personal issues so sorry to dig up an old post. But I just want to say wow! What a huge loss to the community.
  2. Destiny 2

    I'm seeing a lot of reviews in progress. Some good, some not so good. I think I'd rather wait until the PC version comes out and then only after I've played the new Mario. But I'm bored now and just might cave in and get it to hold me over for the next 6 weeks or so.
  3. Happy 40th Atari 2600

    Hard to believe it's been 40 years. Like a lot of others it's the system that got me into this hobby way back when. And then 2 years later the Atari 8-bit computers came out and that was the real game changer for me as my 2600 saw less and less of my time and while the A8 more and more. Ah the good old days.
  4. Destiny 2

    Anyone playing Destiny 2? Thoughts?? I'm a little bored and was thinking of picking it up. I played the first game (PS4) and liked it enough, but haven't played in ages. I'd possibly wait and grab the PC version next month but it comes out right before Super Mario Odyssey and I'm sure I'll be busy with that. In the meantime maybe the PS4 version of D2 would keep me busy.
  5. What is rocket launcher? Should I be using it?

    I thought about giving RL a try and can't even get registered there, haha, something about being denied registration because they don't allow spammers. I guess they don't like my VPN, I dunno, but I'm not going to bother.
  6. Steam Summer 2017 Sale

    There's some good stuff there but I'll more than likely pass. I get most of my digital PC games through GOG where it's DRM free which allows me to install on more than one PC. Edit:...I should say install and play on more than one PC. I can think of a few games where the wife and I couldn't be on and playing at the same time.
  7. FM Towns Marty

    Appreciate it @Alexandre. Unfortunately it doesn't work for me. For whatever reason DT refuses to unmount/mount anything unless I click it. Just like before it just sits there until I tell it to unmount/mount so I have to manually mount whatever game I want to run.

    Received my Atari 800 today and it's in great shape.

    Fox News has a blurb about it today... Still not much to go on but it's nice to see it's making a little noise. My 800 has shipped and I should have it by week's end. And I also have an Ultimate SD Cartridge for it coming. I can load that sucker up with games and play on the real hardware.

    Over at the Atariage forums there's a rumor that there's some TV ads out. But I haven't see any yet.

    Thanks @neil9000...and here's another short blurb about it: https://www.cnet.com/news/ataris-rumored-new-game-console-is-real-and-pc-based/ I also just bought an Atari 800. Won't be here for a week or so but it's supposedly in pristine conditiion. I'm excited and I'll post up some pics when it gets here.

    Oh my! Quake!! Good times. DOOM, Duke 3D, etc....is where I cut my teeth as far as online gaming goes. But getting a game going was a pain and often times a failure. But Quake, oh man, that was the bomb. Then Quake 2 and after that Heretic II was really, really good. I played that for quite a while. There was a small but devoted community and I still have a friend or two from those days. PanicFire where are you?!?! Even the devs would get on and play with us from time to time which was really cool. Mouse and keyboard FTW!....GG!! Then Everquest sucked me in and away from the online shooters and good luck finding a good old fashioned deathmatch now. That's OK though, seems the older I get....and trust me I'm ancient....the more I enjoy the old simple pleasures of the arcade classics like Pac Man, Pooyan, Asteroids, Donkey Kong, etc... ...speaking of Donkey Kong. Have you guys played Donkey Kong Remix in MAME? Very cool, hard, but really worth the effort to get it running.

    Yeah, it works with the PS4 as you described. I've never tried it though, got it just for MAME.
  14. GOG Summer Sale 2017 Recommendations

    Definitely, it's a great stick. For about $60 here in the U.S. it's a bargain. Like you, I always wanted an arcade stick but being on a fixed income and limited budget the prices of some of these are up there. The F300 has been more than worth the price for me.

    It's good as is but throw a Sanwa joystick in there and it's even better.
