Ralph Baer is one of those endlessly entertaining folks that I never get tired of hearing from. Ironically, so is Nolan Bushnell...

Re: Old Nintendo system sells for $13,105

The more people keep finding these games in their attic, the more the price should go down. This game keeps jumping to astronomical numbers. BTW, I was curious about someone with a username like "lace_thongs35", so I clicked her profile. Here's what she looks like. http://i1.ebayimg.com/0...

Old Nintendo system sells for $13,105

Everyday folk discovering colossally valuable collectors' items amid everyday junk has been the lifeblood of antiques shows for years, but it's not every day you see a real-life gold-in-the-attic tale play out on eBay. Last week, North Carolina eBay user lace_thongs35 thought she was putting up an ...

Re: C64 DTV

It would be cool to be able to find this thing at Wal-Mart or Target like the Atari Flashback. But if it's a limited thing that's fetching triple-digit prices, you'd probably be better off with an original C64, capacitors be damned.

LOL @ Ter for blowing the dust off of this thread!

Re: MaxRD's T-shirt Artwork from '93!

Well, technically it wasn't ME that threw them away! When I left home, I instructed my parents to put everything I left behind in the attic. Well, it was ten years before I rented a U-Haul and picked most of it up. I think a lot of my gaming magazines are still up there because I couldn't fit everyt...

Re: AT&T predicts the future in 1993

Yeah, we have NORpass here in North Carolina. There are so few tolls anywhere though that the only people you see using them are truck drivers.

Re: Atari 800 XL

I have the XE console with the keyboard, with a shoebox full of games and programs. I have the disk drive and the zapper, but I never have come across a tape drive for it yet. I guess *technically* that was my first computer, but all I ever did was play games on it. I can't remember all the games I ...

Re: Shaq Fu World Tour

I believe it! I used to work at a local used game store, and on the bottom shelf, I used to throw the crap games down there that wouldn't sell, like the 75 copies of last year's Madden or NFL something or other and mark them down to a quarter. Shaq-Fu was the one game that wasn't sports-related (wel...

Re: Shaq Fu World Tour

HA HA! That game really was crap-tacular. Not the worst game ever made like some would claim, but sill- I remember being pissed all weekend after renting it. I was like "man, I could have rented Super Mario All Stars but my dumb ass had to get Shaq attacked."
