That's why I haven't worked on the hack I started in such a long time. Every time I'd try to get back into it, I'd find myself getting sidetracked by hacking the Pentagon and giving meth to babies...

Did you check the cord for chew marks?  :laugh:
When my stepsister was little, she'd chew the feet off her Barbies...and when that didn't satiate her rubberlust, she came after our controller cords... Ruined at least 2 of them...

That's too bad we never reached a point where someone could actually walk into a store and buy one of these...
The day it was announced that it was being discontinued, I checked Amazon and the average reseller price jumped from $180 to $350...
I intended to buy one of these once the dust settles a bit, but there's no way I'm paying those ridiculous prices. The NES Classic was a neat idea, but was handled horribly by Nintendo.
So I guess I'll just keep playing NES roms on my phone with my clip-on bluetooth controller.

What does NSX stand for? Nintendo Switch Xtreme? Maybe not Xtreme...the 90's are over... For that matter, why do some people call the PlayStation PSX instead of PS or PS1...And what about GCN? Game Cube (from) Nintendo? Game Cube Nonpareil?

Nothing personal, I just need answers.  :thumbsup:

I guess I should have said game "card" rather than "cartridge," as the latter implies something bigger and bulkier. Oh well...six of one, baker's dozen of the other...

They're slightly smaller than the 3DS game cards. But considering you can get 128GB SD cards nowadays, I'm sure they'll have more than enough storage so I wouldn't expect an N64 situation here.

I loved my Wii. Super Mario Galaxy was badass, and Wario Ware was a blast. My kids still enjoy Mario Kart Wii, and I even got my wife to play Wii Sports with me. I skipped over the WiiU though, I just didn't get a good feeling about it. The Switch looks promising to me, but I'm waiting 2 weeks to open it because we're saving it for my daughter's birthday.

Well what do you know, I didn't preorder a Switch but decided to show up at Best Buy and I got a golden ticket for one of these bad boys. So once the store opens, I'll have my first ever release day console.

I heard on the radio there's apparently been a buzz around the internet about how awful Nintendo Switch game cartridges taste...
Nintendo acknowledged that it added a bitter chemical to discourage small children from trying to swallow them.
But the reporter added, "This still doesn't explain why adults are tasting their video games" 😂

That would be great. I was planning on waiting until after my vacation in June to even look for one, but I'm pretty sure that if I happen to see one in a store before then I'll pick it up...don't tell anyone, but I lack impulse control...

I'm not really able to help, but I'd just like to point out that whenever I see someone apologizing for English not being their first language, they're usually better than many native English speakers  :laugh:

Not in the commercial it isn't 😜
The way he says "FIYAH" is so husky and seductive...

Only five days more, so excited!

I'm hoping to find one by Christmas time, but considering Nintendo's long tradition of underproducing along with my unwillingness to pay scalpers 3 times what the thing is worth, I'm not sure if that'll happen.  :laugh:
I had a hell of a time finding a DS when I decided to get one 2 years after they launched.

I looked on Amazon over the last few days and it seems the average resell price has dropped $60 or so. Now you can get one for merely $125 rather than $185  :laugh:

I might still pick one up once I can find it for the actual msrp of $59.99, but I refuse to reward the price gougers.

Trying to muscle my way through Blaster Master: Enemy Below. The first 7 bosses were easy, but I haven't been able to get past the last one.

Working on FFXV, but I keep taking breaks to mess around with VII and IX.

And the occasional round of "impaired GTA V" is always amusing.

That's exactly what I was thinking as I was typing

(but I'll always remember him most for being on the cover of Ironsword)

Not every FF have much scifi elements (FF9 or FF12 for example)
That's why I said fantasy/sci-fi, and not sci-fi/fantasy  :laugh:

Aren't all Final Fantasies fantasy/sci-fi soap operas?  ;)

The fire flower in Super Mario World. After the first castle, you can always backtrack to pick up a cape. Once you have access to a cape, you can spin right round, baby, right round, and bulldoze anything in your path which pretty much renders throwing fireballs pointless. Not to mention you can fly.

I'm old and can't stay awake like I used to, especially  now that I have a wife and kids and a job where I frequently work 12 hours a day. When I got Final Fantasy 7 on my PS3, it took me 7 hours longer to finish it than back when I had it on PS1, probably because I kept dozing off...

This thread title reminded me that I had a dream the other night that I was being electrocuted.
