Re: Fake Ebay Sellers (Rant)

Man, I had so many G1 Transformers and Gobots, bitd (10-year old in '84), including all the Dinobots! ... and minicars, Constructicons and Insecticons. ... and Jetfire! Soundwave with all the micro-cassettes was one of my favs. Never had Megatron which is a bit ironic. Gave them all away to a work-...

Re: Looking for a 412 in 1

I have a jamma wired cab that used the 60-in-1 and the ArcadeSD. Does the use of the 412 require a change in the pin-out? I thought there was a ground that needed to be changed but maybe I'm mixing it up with another board.

Re: TCA - Let's Play Donkey Kong!

yeah, Billy's way might garner some public attention but not the kind most people are after... I've been trying to get a decent DK score on my ArcadeSD cab, and so far no luck. Fortunately, I placed my hammers *away* from the game room. Today's top DK player - John McCurdy - has a WR of 1,259,000. H...

Re: Article on Slither arcade history from the Arcade Blogger

Slither was a fun game to have packed in with the ColecoVision Roller Controller!

Shameless rip-off variant of Centipede though

Any thoughts on what it was originally?


I want to say Missile Command but its suffering from a pretty serious beat down - or a generic based loosely on Missile Command

229,820 ! I think I completed the 3rd mission. Or was it the first two missions. Anyway, I have a better idea how to advance and not FAIL the darn missions. Ugh, that's annoying. ... and, YEAH, you better start flying some more missions, EveNOTgoodenuf! 8-) https://goo.gl/photos/x1qL5CVAwemnNYiW8 H...

Re: VFVL S2 - Game 3 - Mr. Do! - Dec 17 to Jan 7

Someone is closing in on high score champion for Mr. Do!

Will it be HPR Pinball, or will The Evener "get even" and pull out a victory? Or will someone post a score as the clock ticks down, blowing all of the other scores out of the water??
