Atari 2600 (Light Sixer)
Pitfall (Atari 2600)
Enduro [CIB] (Atari 2600)
Keystone Kapers (Atari 2600)
Luigi's Mansion (3DS)
Virtua Fighter 5 (PS3)
Virtua Tennis 3 (PS3)
Virtua Tennis 4 (PS3)
PlayTV (PS3)
SBK 2011 (PS3)
Beijing Olympics 2008 (PS3)

About 2 weeks ago I went to the local recycle centre and they had a few things I was interested in like an acoustic guitar and some 80s singles like Star Trekkin' and a Spandau Ballet song. We were there because my brother wanted to by some bricks but when he didn't get any and I forgot about the other stuff and left.

A week ago I decided to go back and see if the stuff was still there. The guitar and Star Trekkin' were gone but Spandau Ballet's "Fight For Ourselves" was still there. That was the main thing I wanted, so yay! I went over and checked the game section, which was full of PS2 Singstar games as usual, and I saw something in the corner of my eye. I started looking at the games again and eventually that thing I saw twigged in my brain: "That's an Atari 2600!"

So I got the woman behind the counter to get it out of the cabinet to see what the price was, I was expecting it to be maybe $25-$35 but no, it was $6. A retro bargain.

No joysticks or PSU and it was dirty and has some plastic chipped off at the back, but it scrubbed up fairly well for something that's 40 years old and was dumped at the tip.

Don't know if it works yet but I have an el cheapo PSU and RF adapter coming to test it out.

That’s a find that would make Cal jealous.

Smiley would be getting wood over the woody.

And it was AU$6, which is US$4, so Cal would have liked to pick it up at that price.

$6 AU is £3 35 GBP.

Just had a quick look on eBay and they tend to go for around maybe £30-£40

Forza Motorsport 6 Complete DLC Pack - $6.79

I haven't played the game at all despite having it as long as I've had an xbone (been busy with Horizon 3 and DLC's) But my brother plays 6 a lot, so he'll most likely enjoy at least a couple of the cars.
If every person who told you your vote actually mattered voted for the same person as you, your vote would still be worthless at overcoming all the people who voted Donald Trump/Boris Johnson/Scott Morrison into office.

Intellivision Flashback system

My dad mentioned he wanted to play these games, but the controllers are pretty much required for emulators. Buying the whole system for the two controllers is the feasible option I could find. The system itself seems like it's peak AtGames "quality," so I'll either build a Retropie system or gift him my Genesis Mini if Retroarch can run Intellivision on that.

I bought Madden 20 last night so that will be my game time until the Ravens start losing IRL and I become too depressed to want to think about football more than once a week.

I didn't even make it through a quarter on the PC demo because I threw an interception on the first play of the game with Kirk Cousins.

They should have done an NFL Blitz type game the first time. They had a sex boat party like the Vikings and you could get STDs in career mode.

:rofl: I bet you could get Fred Smoot on board for that.

I'd also be up for some sort of mini game featuring Onterrio Smith trying to sneak a Whizzinator through airport security.

Went to an arcade in Indy and they were selling lots of Japanese games. I bought a couple SFC games.

Yossy Island (Yoshi’s Island)
Super Donkey Kong (Donkey Kong Country)
Super Mario World

The only reason I bought Donkey Kong Country was because it was complete in the box with controls card and all.

Untitled Goose Game (Switch)

It’s amusing at first, but I got bored a little too quickly.
