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.

Anyone else getting this?

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?   

Thoughts, comments?  Post it up!

General Discussion / Bumble Bee the Movie
« on: January 10, 2019, 10:00:19 PM »
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.

Comments, Thoughts.. post it up!

I Think maybe around 1pm...  I'd like to get a game of Titanfall 2.  TIme might be variable...

@targetrasp @XFaKToRX … would you be down?

The time has come for a topic for all things glowing... RGB Glowing and customizable that is.  Fan lights, Keyboard lights, Different in case lights and many other lighted peripherals have been  the rage since the late 90's.  HOWEVER... not we have RGB customizable lights - In many case... millions of colors and possibilities are possible (though we can argue how practical 80% of those colors really are).

What are you using that are RGB capable?  And what customizations are you using / what colors have you chose for them? 

Post it up!

Just Curious on how many of our members work in an Information Technology or technology related field such as programming.

As I mentioned before, I'm looking to start up a tech related site.  This will not be "forum based" but may include a forum in the future... or if I Can figure out how to marry 2 technologies... I'll use SMF or Xenforo combined with this CMS technology.     The site will be Article based - mostly how to and help articles.  I plan to use this as my repository for tech docs in an easily searchable and taggable manner.  There will be a specific format for uniformity and to make Search Engine Optimization easy.   I will be looking for Content writers... for even easy how to articles such as Excel and Word.  I will allow content repositories for your how to articles made for work... OR your work tasks made into How to articles so you can have a place to EASILY access them in the future.  There will be a little bit of masking identities - meaning, not showing actual server or IP names of actual servers used.

If you're interested … please let me know.  topics will be EVERYTHING covered in IT... and I'll welcome how to Programming help...etc.  So there will be different Linux Versions, IBM AIX, Maybe DB2, SQL, IBM iSeries with IBM i OS (or known as AS400), Windows platforms such as Windows 7 / Windows 8.1 / Windows 10.... even stuff including backups and backup strategies.

Looking to game a bit this Saturday.

@targetrasp Titanfall 2 PS4.
@Jack maybe some Diablo 3?

Maybe we can get a little of both in play.  Also, it would be cool to get more members playing together.  If you wish to organize game time, feel free to use both the Discord channel:

So this was last year... and I ran across a couple cool Youtube videos.

The below video is from the iPhone launch Video... it's interesting how they made a physical keyboard look like such a bad thing... keep this in mind for later:

CNN Released a 10 years Later iPhone Video.  I Don't like a lot of CNN articles/news these days (this is coming from someone that grew up with CNN Headline News)... but this was definitely a good video lol.  I LOVE the reactions of the Senior engineer and how he HONESTLY talks about the iPhone and issues.  These are the things you don't see in the 1st video I linked from 2007... what a sales job Steve Jobs did.

Such a crazy thing... based off this... the keyboard on Cell phones died.  It also changed the perceptions of all people (especially younger generations) that keyboards meant "Out of date" technology... no matter how inaccurate the touch screen is. 

To this day, I think Apple and IOS has the best touch screen, most accurate, and the amount of incorrect corrections are minimized.   Android... I'm still having some troubles in this area and I'm looking for ways to operate with autocorrect  / prediction off.   These are things you didn't have to worry about as much.    Though I do not agree with Jobs on the rest of the smart phones being dumb lol.   But that was the right plat at the right time...  good play sir... good play.

Blackberry proceeded to miscalculate the importance of apps.  Palm Died.  The remainder of the cell phone market was thrown up in the air.  Now at the other end of the spectrum... Apple is facing increased competition with Android.  Android has technically taken over the market.

I wrote a small review on the BlackBerry Touch from this year.  It's actually a pretty decent phone.  I don't think it will persuade many people, but it's android based.  It's not the most powerful phone out there but comes with many of the BlackBerry tools / software people have grown to love.

Post up your thoughts and comments... It's pretty cool to go back and review these events.

OK ... we've had several topics on Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch.   I picked it up and we have it installed and are playing it.  It's super fast and super slick.  Some of the controls with the 2 controllers separate from the console can be a little hard to get used to.  I want to try out the pro controller to see if it's a lot better.

The following is really cool:
Spoiler: ShowHide
Once you beat classic mode, you play a SHMUP to shoot all the credits.  You know from original games, you would "beat up" the credits ...etc... well now you play a SHMUP lol. 

It's pretty fun!

You only start with 8 characters... so you will have to earn / buy all those characters!  There are a ton of them - 74-76 of them depending on how you count them.

Who picked theirs up?  We should get CDG members together to play this.  Post it up!

Other Super Smash Bros Ultimate Topics:
Smash Bros Ultimate - Secret

I think I'm picking this up from Best Buy today.  It's $40 with the steel book for the standard edition.   I am buying the Playstation 4 version this time due to issues with Battlefield 1 PC and the dying crowd.  @SpartanEvolved and I could never find a match after a certain point.... but @Aya-Kun could still find Battlefield 1 Playstation 4 matches.  Even today there is a better community.

Is anyone else picking it up?  @targetrasp @CreepinDeth ?

It would be cool to get a few playing if possible.

We've discussed Breath of the Wild for the Nintendo Switch@targetrasp @Kinikko and others really dig the game.  But How does Breath of the Wild compare on the Wii U?  What are the differences?

I noticed it is currently for sale at Best Buy.. and I was thinking of picking up a copy cheap.  If anyone remembers... the Twilight Princess was released on the Gamecube and Wii.. The Gamecube version became somewhat of a collectors item.

Linky: The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - Nintendo Wii U -  Now... it's currently $34 and it's a bit tempting.   I know the Wii U version didn't have near as many sold... even though 1.5 Million copies were sold as of August 2018 (I believe the number is).

SO what are your thoughts?  Should this be in a collection for increasing value?  Post it up!

LOL... I had to laugh at these.  So... I noticed at Gamestop, they are on Sale.  I was actually tempted ... not sure why...  But I didn't buy.

Linky is here: Giant Robot Slippers with Sound - By ThinkGeek  -

Here's a brief video on what they do - the last 15 seconds of foot tapping is my favorite.  The sound somewhat reminds me of the Cyberdemon in Doom 2 ( @Jack lol):

Anyone try these? LOL...  They look like they would be a great gift for certain gamers.  post it up! ;D

Per our regular yearly tradition, @mastermario @Grindspine and @SpartanEvolved gamed.  Unfortunately, Instead of a Thanksgiving Lan...  We used to play from after dinner... all night.   So this year, Grindspine and I started out with Diablo 3... then Mastermario, ComradGC (Gamecube lol) and I played 2.5 hours of Overwatch.

How many of you have Overwatch?  Check in at the Overwatch Topic   I'm going to try to organize some people to get together. 
@targetrasp@Jack@Zidart ?

If you get video game gifts... post up what you got!  ;D

I received an email from Sony.. Did anyone else see this?

Hello bluevoodu,

We wanted to update you on a planned service shut down, which impacts online access for Warhawk, Twisted Metal, PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, and Sound Shapes. This has now been extended to January 31, 2019 at 12:00 AM PT.

Following this shutdown, Warhawk will no longer be playable unless <a href="">the PS3 system is set to LAN mode for local network play[/url].  For Twisted Metal and PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale, users can play the campaign offline as well as local (couch) multiplayer in split screen mode. For Sound Shapes, users will be able to play the campaign and all DLC purchases as well as create their own levels, however, users won’t be able to share their levels with the community or download community created levels.

This brings up the discussion again about achievements you cannot obtain anymore:
Trophies, Gamerscores, and Achievements you can no longer Attain
