    He's bouncing it off the wall.

    If you're curious about my icon; it's an update of the early Lego Castle theme's "Black Falcons" faction.

    I'll only get a 32X if it can live up to my expectations in the hummingbird-based shooter genre.

    Honestly, if the strips are funny, I'd read "Penny-Arcade 1990s"

    I wish I had my old stack of GamePro and EGM from BITD. I remember buying a random PC gaming magazine (odd because I wasn't into PC games at all) and reading a review for Planescape: Torment, which would end up being one of my favorite games of all time.

    I’m probably going to post exactly once and then never again.

    I haven't looked at them in ages, but I still have almost an entire run of Nintendo Power mags on my bookshelf.

    I'd pay for a retro EGM/Gamepro subscription where you pick a year and they send you a reproduction of an issue a month by mail.

    I miss the days of their man-crush on John Romero.

    Oh! I was like, what is that some kind of weird light?

    Gabe sounds like he should be working for the lost-in-the-past fools over at Watermelon, if you know who they are.

    Good god MKII on Genesis was a huge deal back in the day.

    Want to know what I used my government stimulus check on? Do you think I paid off my debt, or finishing off deferred maintenance on my home or vehicle? No, I got on Ebay and ordered like 80 volumes of Nintendo Power that I had as a kid and always sat on my bed rereading on boring days.

    Well, ok, that was actually only a tiny part of my stimulus check, but still. Nostalgia is apparently my drug of choice.

    The green ball / couch action is very authentic.

    Well yes, I did too, but it was only a year and a couple months. I'm talking early to mid 90s.
