  1. Did anyone ever get one of those 1Up arcade machines? Between those and now this, people seem excited for the classic arcade feel of it all.
  2. $87 of recycled cans!? That's a story that deserves respect!
  3. My memory is a bit shaky on this, but I think it's Dino Park Tycoon. This would have been in like, 4th or 5th grade? It was paper route money and I had to have the computer teacher actually order it because it was hard to find outside of school catalogs. My first big purchase was Pokemon Stadium. I had to convince my brother to pool our allowances together for about a month in advance to afford it, but it worked out!
  4. I love this, might be my favorite track on the whole album (which is excellent all the way through). It reminds me of "A Real Hero" by College (feat. Electric Youth), from the movie Drive. It's just such a strong result of an obviously clear vision.
  5. Been a long time since I had a video game themed video to share on these forums! So, here's a dumb thing I made today!
  6. Huh. Punch me in the face if that doesn't sound a lot like the Batman Beyond soundtrack too.
  7. I'm sorry if this has been asked before, and I know the FAQ answers this...a bit. So, on Twitch, I wanted to do a night of OCR mixes. Like a radio show, camera on me as I talk about the song, then screen of just the song playing, back to me after song, repeat. Does this still fit the guidelines of OCR? During the song, it is just the song playing, with the artist and song and site on screen, but I'm not "adding" anything during those moments. I have VOD of me doing this, if needed for clarification and if it's not okay, I'll take it down right away.
  8. I was looking at that! Is it any good? Does it work for someone with the same Mega Man needs?
  9. I got Necrosphere, Alwa’s Awakening, Near Death, NIGHTS into Dreams and the first two Witcher games for about $18.
  10. This is a bit tacky on my end, but when I heard the rumor, I had to get some feelings out. I'm posting the link to said blog, but in short, I prefer the X-Men to be separate from the rest of the Marvel universe. Otherwise, personally, I find the whole mutant concept doesn't work so well. X2 and First Class would not have been better with a Thor or a Doctor Strange. I kind of seem like the minority on this, though. https://ericmikols.com/2017/11/06/the-x-men-work-best-when-outside-the-marvel-universe/
  11. Just start with VII. Dated graphics, but it would be hard to go back to if you play the later games. I'd suggest going in order, because there are fixes and options you'll miss if you go backwards. IX is where they started shortening Summon animations and you'll lose your mind if you have to revert back to all that.VII-X are all great, IMO.
  12. It was a bad game anyway, but I was forgiving of X2: Wolverine's Revenge for the most part. Until I went up against the Juggernaut, that is. That ended my patience with the game and I never beat the thing.
  13. Hey everyone, quick question. Trying to record a podcast. We have three microphones. We have them hooked into a Focusrite 18i8, which is a usb to my laptop. We record with audacity. I can not get the 3rd mic to get through, even though it shows up as working on the headphones and focusrite control. Audacity will not pick it up. What do I not understand, is this fixable?
  14. Glad I looked for this before posting my own! I've been streaming games to keep the late night loneliness away and it works better than I thought it might. Going to have to subscribe to a whole bunch of you now too! https://www.twitch.tv/duskvstweak
  15. I've been adding a bunch of the Sonic and Megaman comics to the kid's section of the library I work at and they're always extremely popular. Super bummed to find out I can't get new ones. A lot of disappointed kids when I don't have Vol. 5 of Sonic the Hedgehog.
