Re: Revenge of the nerds

I just want to say that I finally read through this thread and endorse every aspect of it.

Good work; I expect some conclusions to be reached.

Right here, apparently. I wrote a thing about this place a while back. By the way, there's a prophecy that the last two people who post here before the forum mysteriously disappears have to engage in a mortal duel. Also there's something about a (checks notes) camel spider. Does that mean anything t...

Re: No floating donuts? :(

Hey, you guys are keeping the flame alive. Well done!

I've always wondered how Sonic Patrol Car played. Is this the first instance of Sonic talking, also? I didn't expect the music to be (mostly?) recycled.

Re: A joke

It's business as usual for a bartender, and one day as he is cleaning his bar when an unusual customer walks in. The man is dressed in an expensive suit, has a beautiful supermodel hanging off each arm, and has a limo parked outside. Furthermore, the man has an orange for a head. The customer sits ...

Re: The Saturn sounded like THAT?

I always remember :BEEEEEEEEP: as part of the Dreamcast startup, as I always had at least one VMS with dead batteries.

At one point a made a battery pack for my VMS that I could use with rechargeable batteries, but it didn't fit into the controller.

Re: A Dream

A couple times a month I dream that I've just woken up in an uncomfortable position and can't move anything but my eyes. Sleep paralysis , Wikipedia calls it. Usually there's also something going on, like wind blowing out the windows or someone breaking into my room. It used to freak me out, but now...

Re: What are you doing with your life?

I quit buying video games in 2002. Occasionally I'll play Guitar Hero or a multi-player Wii game at a friend's or load up an emulator, but post-Dreamcast video games never really captured my attention. Distance running has been my primary hobby since 2000. This is probably in part due to my playing ...

Re: Seriously, why wasn't SegaSonic on Gems Collection?

The special stages run too fast. They were slower in the other versions. Yikes.

Re: Yet another recommendation thread

If you haven't played them elsewhere, pick up Skies of Arcadia and Grandia 2.

The Power Stone games are also very good.

Crazy Taxi is also a must-have.
