Ha! 

I tell you what, I got lucky that folks donít try to get me retro crap. Right now there is no shortage of stuff to buy.

None of us need anything discussed on this forum.  You two can be ungrateful and snarky somewhere else.

Agreed.  If somebody gives you a rock your response is supposed to be "Wow!  That's the best rock ever!"

No ill will intended and not trying to bring the chuffy thread down.

Just pointing out that in my life, the amount of retro junk available to readily purchase, combined with the amount of folks with good intentions in my life, seems likely that I would be over-flowing with retro stuff. Of course I would be appreciative as I'm sure everyone here would be.

I donít think it would be a crappy gift.  Youíre dead inside if you canít have fun with it.



Been playing the Xbox One I bought myself.  Microsoft is throwing so many promos at this thing you almost feel sorry for them.  I didnít think you could do worse than the PS4 interface but here we are.  Graphics look good until I fire up Spider-Man on my PS4... but itís good enough.  Controller plays a little more naturally, though.  I got in on that 5 cents a day game pass deal, so itís difficult to foresee buying more games anytime soon.  My wife and I have enjoyed Overcooked a great deal.

Agreed.  I've had fun with plug-n-play units I picked up for a quarter at a yard sale.  The a1up units are far from perfect but they are cute and play the games we all know and love.

In regards to the xbox...Really, because I feel that the PS4 interface is the inferior one.... it's like "my first gui"  no personality at all.  In addition, you can arrange all the games and apps on the unit for quick launch like you can in win 10... I prefer that over what Sony did.   The graphics on both are about the same, but yes, Spiderman looks (and plays) particularly amazing.  Too bad about the gamepad.  At least Sony has improved this version of enough to where I don't have permeant gaming claw after extended play.

Also with the purchase of a psvr I am officially "that guy".  You know, the one that buys all three systems for a generation, plus all the weird add-ons for said systems...  can't say it isn't worth the effort considering any time there is a sale on anything it doesn't matter if it's platform specific, I'll be able to play it.

New arcade bar in the Valley bruhs.... might be the site of the next ZapCon meetup...
Does that mean youíre heavily panting as you book your visit? Not that thereís anything wrong with that.

Hell yeah bro.  I don't discriminate.  I figure why date chicks and only get half the population when you can date both dudes and chicks and get 100% of the population.

I survived another Christmas and New year, did 12 Days in Orlando with the Wife and her Mother,  The thought that they have the Death Penalty in Florida probably saved at least one of them  :dunno :dunno

@PBJ, how Fking big is Houston International,  Felt like a bloody Mile walk each way just for those 2 Cigarettes. TSA PRE or whatever it's called was nice though  :laugh2: :laugh2:

The chuff is coming in hard this year.  I finally pulled the trigger to go to Zapcon in April and I have a repo 1983 Star Wars standing arcade cabinet lined up for a project I have been wanting to do for quite some time.  Expect the project log in the coming weeks.  I also got the Lego Millennium Falcon (75257) for Christmas. *see below*  I think I'm happier that my daughter enjoys using it more than the fact I got it as a gift.  Teach them young.

Nice.  My son got the X-Wing for Christmas and we had a lot of fun building it together.  The $800 Millennium Falcon set would be so sweet but just a tad bit out of my price range...

Never got the point of those Lego sets.  Carefully follow instructions and then you're stuck with a giant and very expensive paperweight.

Yeah, but I can actually play with an arcade cabinet after it's built.  What the hell do you do with a $200 Lego model?  "Yep, I followed them there directions real good."  :lol


You guys do you.

Well if it actually was a model I might get it, but it's a blocky, ugly approximation of a real model made using children's building blocks.  I like models... used to love them as a kid.  I liked lego as well, but not to make models but rather to use my imagination and make whatever I want... which I think is supposed to be the point of lego.

I like building them. They are a conversation piece at my parties. I have a few that I built with my son.

I loved Lego as a kid but I used to build stuff out of my own head.

But I agree its about the build not the end result.
If I had kids I would love to sit on the floor and build stuff with them.

Thats what it is about for me now.  To share in the same excitement with my daughter that I had when I was her age.  She may grow out of the Lego phase so I will enjoy it while I can.

Frankly the idea of being a father scares the ---steaming pile of meadow muffin--- outa me.

I mean genuinely terrifies me!

But little things like that almost make me want a kid....

Then I remember that they keep you awake at night before that and then pester ya for decades after lol

Kids are easy.  Now I'm not saying it isn't a rollercoaster of emotion.  It is.  But you just have to roll with it.  I'm sure its something you and Mrs. Titch can handle if you are trying to create a baby Titch.

You tend to pick up where your significant other can't and vise versa.  You would be surprised, if you become a dad, what you are good at.  My wife is good at overall care while I tend to be more of the emotional supportive parent.  TBH I really thought I would have more patience but in the end you work on your faults and the family grows as a whole.
