Re: Preserving arcade history

Thought I'd give this a bump, as a bunch of pages were added over the last few months from people on a forum, one of which is the current Arcade of the month, being the Ridgemont Mall arcade from the Fast Times at Ridgemont High movie. Yep, the wiki takes fictional arcades too! There are also pages ...

Re: Kick butt Vectrex homebrews!

Well, I've gotten several more since my last post on here :D V-Frogger is one. Even though quite the classic, I got sick of the original Frogger years ago, but upon playing V-Frogger at a gaming expo I played a couple of games' worth of it. The levels are different so I enjoyed it all over again onc...

Re: Where is everyone?

I checked and you last logged on January, 2017. I'm not sure what happened, but I need to fix the issue with new users not getting notifications. Yes, it's definitely something to do with the system. Maybe something at phpBB's end? Either way, I'm glad to have you back my friend! :2_thumbs_up: Same...

That wasn't it though, as I'd request for my password or a new one to be sent to my e-mail and it never arrived. I didn't change e-mail addresses either, plus I check my spam folder every day and it wasn't there either. I tried signing up for a new account under "Darryl B.2" or something u...

Re: What's your favorite classic Atari System?

It was rumored that Atari made those computers just so you could play games on them. Because back then, computers were considered boring, adult things.

^Did all of that actually work?

I wonder how that so radically changed from that system to the NES, which actually was released?

Re: Epic Sega Craigslist pickup on January 26, 2015

Funny seeing both Star Control and Starflight there, as neither one stayed in print for very long. Golden Axe II I played through and beat it and was considering putting it up as trade bait at some point, but then I tried it with the nephew as a second player. No way in hell I'm getting rid of that ...

Preserving arcade history

A few months ago I mentioned on my forums a bummer of a thought of there being tons of arcades, whether they were small, huge, or somewhere in between all over the world that closed decades ago, yet you look around the internet and you can’t find anything about them. Nothing. Squat. Period. They’re ...

It's something in regards to the water table and a few other factors that helped preserve them so well.
