This is not super new news... but I Thought it was ridiculous.   The monitor itself has pretty nice specs...…. for $4999.  THEN the monitor STANDA costs $999... the Vesa mount alone is $199. Crazy.   I mean... that's gross even for Apple.

My favorite comment:
"Apple Charging $1000 for the stand for the new computer monitor!!  For the Stand.  At that price, the thing better be made of Vibranium straight from Wakanda courtesy of Stark Enterpirses."   LOL  :))

This is interesting...  and I like it a lot.

Another Post I missed...  We had a super full schedule ... so we didn't have a chance to do a lot.  However, we had a few margaritas! 

Who celebrated this year?   What did you end up doing?

General Discussion / Gaming Headsets... why must you suck?
« on: April 29, 2019, 01:22:19 PM »
SO … my Logitech G35 died.  Technically the plastic piece that has G35 on it broke... therefore, the headphone on the right side keeps falling off.  I'm thinking of a duct tape way to fix this.  Anyway,  It was a legit... great headset.  I bought it when it launched back in 2008/2009 (it was one of those years) directly from Logitech.   I'm picky on how things sound... and it hit every expectation for me.   It Blocked outside noise wonderfully... had GREAT Surround and non-surround audio.   It was USB, so it had it's own drivers on board.  So without software, this headset still sounded... awesome.   

SO... fast forward to today.  I bought a Razer Kraken Pro Tournament Edition  Green headset.   SUPER UNDERWHELMED.   I did my research and this was supposed to be a great headset.  But... what the hell?   Why in the world do gaming headsets these days suck so bad?  The Logitech, Corsair, Steel series, Razer...etc.... just don't compare to the G35 released many years ago.  I Thought we would progress... not regress.  I have not tried it with the software and USB THX nub thing... but I already know, it's not going to make a big enough difference.

At this point... I hate to return it because I know I'll pay a fee.  But I definitely will drop some money for a non-gaming headset at some point... and get something worthy of music and everything.

Happy Birthday @Aya-Kun …. it's been awhile since we've seen you around.  However, enjoy your digital cake and I hope it was a good one!

I 1st heard about foldable / bendable phones back in 2008-2009.   Nokia was Research and Developing a technology that allowed bendable phones.... NOW... it's not exactly foldable, but it's not far off.   I'm not sure who originally came up with the "foldable phone" original concept, but several are releasing.   They are quite expensive too.   Foldable phones really brings us to a new / interesting era of cell phones and portable devices.

Here are a few resources:
Xiaomi Looks Close to Unleashing a Third Contender in the Foldable Phone Wars -
Samsung is working on a new foldable smartphone that’s nothing like the Galaxy Fold -
Samsung Releases Video of Galaxy Fold’s Folding Test -

There are a lot of contenders right now.   Samsung Galaxy Fold will retail for $2000... according to price estimates.   I need a barfing Emoticon... or emoji as the new cool kids call them.   ;D

The coolest one I've seen is a new foldable screen Motorola Razr.   It REALLY has a classic design... is larger... and looks really cool. Here's a "concept" video:

IF it looks anything like that... I want one  ;D

News / Leaks / Rumors / Google Stadia - Changing How We Game?
« on: March 31, 2019, 09:55:19 PM »
In the last 10 year - More Companies are moving to the cloud... movies go from renting via mail to streaming... Digital Distribution for games is starting to take a more dominant role in how we buy our games... amongst other changes.

Now, Google wants to change how we play games.  Enter the Google Stadia:
Stadia, Google’s gaming platform, changed the rules of the console wars -

I started talking about this in the topic:
Retro-Bit Sega Genesis Controller!

Google wants you to offload all your "console processing" to them.   They would handle all processing of your game... and your input for the game would be transmitted over the Internet.  THIS MEANS... you have to ALWAYS be connected to the Internet.  It also means you have to have a pretty good Internet connection.  But you won't have to worry about beefing up your hardware or... hardware at all.

They have been play testing this and it's quite interesting.  If this catches on... it could legitimately change how we play games forever.   But... it really negates couch coop... and that's something I personally wish we wouldn't lose.   Couch Coop seems to be less and less a thing anymore though.

What are your thoughts?    Post it up!

General Discussion / Captain Marvel - Great Movie!
« on: March 19, 2019, 06:49:07 PM »
Has anyone seen Captain Marvel Yet?     What are your thoughts?

I don't want to post anything to spoil it yet... we've technically seen it twice.  Went with @Grindspine the 1st time around.

Here's what I'll say so far... we really dug the movie.  There are some really cool cult references as well.

Post it up!

2 Certs down... and 3 on deck in the next 6 weeks.  HOWEVER... it's time to play a few games.

@targetrasp Down for some Titanfall2?

Maybe some Diablo 3 @Jack , Targetrasp, @Kinikko , @mastermario , @SpartanEvolved , @Grindspine ?

General Discussion / New version of Simple Machines Released
« on: March 03, 2019, 09:43:26 PM »
All -- I've been waiting quite awhile for the newest version to be released.... it's now in Release candidate.  I'm working on a test installation to see what will change.  The theme probably will change, but I'm HOPING that I can re-use this theme without a ton of development and working on a darker theme.   There are many improvements and I will let you know once we are updated.  Some of the site updates were waiting on this update... others are still in the mix and trying / deciding how to move forward while I'm back studying for other stuff at work right now.

If you have time, please continue to help create and respond to posts to keep things moving forward.  I appreciate all those helping to move things forward.

@retro junkie - Happy Birthday!  I hope it's a good one  ;D  Don't forget to enjoy your digital cake!

PS... if you get games for your bday... you have to post what you get lol

I just received an email from Nintendo...  looks like you can download the free Tetris 99 game. Of course, this is free if you subscribe to Nintendo Online.    I play to get this...  I loved Tetris DS when you could play multiplayer against other opponents across the globe. They were fast and fun matches. With that... who else is going to play?  We should get matches going.

The free to download online software, Tetris® 99, is available as a special offer for Nintendo Switch Online members (membership sold separately).

In large-scale, 99-player battles, it’ll take speed, skill, and strategy to knock out the competition and become the last player standing. You can target opponents by sending them Garbage Blocks, but be careful…your rivals can target you back! Defeat opponents to acquire KO badges that may give you the advantage on future attacks. Survive the onslaught and look forward to upcoming online events!

Tetris 99 -

As the topic states... what's the most ridiculous circumstance / Reason you bought a game?

Post it up!

I'll kick this one off...   SO... I didn't have any games that started with Y on Steam and I Wanted to have at least 1 game per letter of the alphabet.  SO... I proceeded to buy Y's on Steam lol.  True story...

Retro Gaming and Hardware / What CLASSIC Systems would you like to see?
« on: January 29, 2019, 09:01:56 PM »
In the topic It was bound to happen - PlayStation Classic! I mentioned it would be cool to see other Classic Consoles.

I'd love to see an Atari Jaguar Classic... or a Turbo Grafx / Duo Classic.  They NEED TO HAVE appropriate video outputs and not be designed bad.  They need to be done proper.... plus have a ton more games.  I'm sure they could do an Atari Jaguar Classic and have the entire Library available.  It would be worth it as there are some great and expensive games for the system.  Other games, you probably wouldn't want to buy, but they are definitely ok to play here and there.

What else would you like to see?    Post it up!

Other Classic Topics:
Neo Geo Mini
C64 Mini
SNES Classic
N64 Classic

URGGHH....   I fired it up over Christmas break for a friend and the left eye wasn't working.  SAD FRICKIN FACE!

So... I'm on a quest to fix it in the next few months... after studying.  I found a few articles, I will share them when I start working on this   

Man... I Was proud to still have one.  He was thrilled to have seen a Nintendo Virtual Boy as well.

Retro Gaming and Hardware / Cubivore - Gamecube
« on: January 19, 2019, 09:09:07 PM »
This was one weird... and in somewhat creepy game lol.  You're a cube and you eat other animal-esque  cubes.  Once you eat them... you take on traits like them.

@retro junkie 's Gamecube Pulled out and playing thread made me think about other Gamecube games and topics.  This game was Nintendo only on the Gamecube and is somewhat rare.  It was rare back when it came out as well... and I managed to score a copy. 

Has anyone else played this?

Did anyone else see this movie?   I Thought it was pretty good.  It definitely could lead into other things... but the ending was really cool.   The movie seemed to stay more true to the Transformer Animated series.
