"A Pentium 233 does everything I want it to do." That is my Dad's neighbor George.
Well, let's be honest. If we didn't ever have to upgrade our OS or Office, a P233 IS all we would need. Oh, yeah, then there are all those games we like to play...
Yes, the cancer that causes us to upgrade like crazy..
"I think I saw some slowdown when all 324 bad guys were on the screen at once. I better upgrade."
The quote above is when Mav was playing Unreal Tournament. He was carrying the flag back to his base for the final point to win the round. He destination was in sight; he could see his Red Flag glowing in the near distance. As he approached his goal, the radiant light of the flag illuminated the room. He could hear and see rockets, plasma bursts and bullets flying by him from his enemies behind. His armor had failed and his health was deteriorating quickly. He jumped towards the flag; his heart was racing and the sweat on the palm of his hand made them hot. Just as his decent to the flag was about complete, big red letters flashed across the screen: Internet Connection Lost. He pounded the mouse he held in his sweaty palm against the DELL mouse pad on the desk, his teeth clenched together trying not to burst out in a string of curse words.
After 3 Dr.Peppers and some choice words to the computer gods later, he found out ATT had turned off their cable modems in the area due to the fact Excite had went belly up. As he got up from the chair he said to himself.."Well, at least I still have Rogue Squadron"....
That was quite possibly the funniest thing I've ever read!
The irony is how true every part of it was!
...And now I have Super Smash Brothers Melee to keep me busy
I seen a review on that. It's looks pretty good.
It is the best game I've ever played. Even someone who doesn't like console games (read: you) would enjoy this game. We'll have to hook it up sometime.
I loved Mario Cart.
That's another great party game. Also Mario Party.
Hey, is it just me...or does the first post keep showing up on the 4th page?
They just started doing that so you can see what you are posting about. Not that we follow any topics on this board.
You got Melee? Do you have any of the unlockable characters yet?
Yeah, I have 3 or 4 of them. Got a few new stages, too
I remember doing all that up up down punch sweep down down to get something special.
Riiiiiggghhhtttt. Sure ya did
But I DO remember the blood code for Mortal Combat for Genesis...A, B, A, C, A, B, B.
Oh, and the Konami code for Contra, Gradius, Final Fight, etc...Up, up, down, up left, right, left, right, B, A, start.
you forgot there's another "A, B"
now they have 10 more buttons on the controllers. Jeesh..
I forgot AB? On which one? I don't remember that...
The Gamecube only has 8 buttons, if you don't inclute the D-pad, the analog stick, and the C-look stick.
The N64 had 10, though.
The Super Nintendo had 8.
The Nintendo had 4.
What about an Atari?
The standard Atari joystick had one button. The paddle (wheel) had 2.
I asked for a original Nintendo for Christmas. I want to play RC Pro AM and Duck Hunt.
I've still got mine boxed up in the attic. I remember getting it the first month it was out. I have the specific singularity of having "Super Mario Bros." After the first 3 months, they started packaging Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt. Sure, I kinda got jipped out of a game, but I just consider myself a unique individual. ha ha ha
Would you consider selling it?
No, sorry. My grandkids are goign to play it!
Dang it.. You should bring it over sometime, I have a few games laying around, I would like to know if they still work.
