    The Pizza Place across the street has a 60 in 1 jamma board installed in an old Centipede Cabinet. Unfortunately it doesn't have Star Wars on it. My buddy tells me it is because Star Whores is a Vector Graphics type game like Asteroids and Battlezone. None the less, I take my son down there a challenge him to games. It's one the few times I can beat him at video games. I think Gyruss is our favorite.


    Kids today are used to having limited number of plays and no "continues." Us old timers know how to play when the pressure is on. :cool:

    I turned to the Dark Side, got revenge on Malak, and became Dark Lord of the Sith, with Bastila as my apprentice...

    But to this day...

    The worst feeling I have ever felt in a videogame was when Mission refused to go Dark Side with us... I used a Jedi Mind trick on her best friend Zaalbar, forcing him to murder her... he cried out an apology as he slaughtered his best friend, against his Will...

    Her corpse was just there, lying on that beautiful beach, motionless.

    Mission could have ran away, like Carth, but she had the courage to remain because she thought she could save me. She trusted me, and believed there was still Good in me somewhere. She didn't believe that I had become Evil enough to take her Life. She thought she could redeem me, and help me return to the Light, and stay True to the Jedi...

    Zaalbar was traumatized by what I forced him to do, but remained in service to me because of his life debt. Canderous knew his place and just respected me even more when my true identity was revealed, and earned the great honor of joining Bastila and I during our final attack aboard the Star Forge.

    But Mission, Jolee, Juhani...

    They all begged me to return to the Light, and to reconsider my decision to usurp the mantle of Dark Lord from Malak.

    They all thought there was still hope for my redemption. They all trusted me, especially Mission... and I fucking killed them.

    They were all too strong in the Light to join me, too loyal to what was right, and just, and Good.

    I felt like I'd slaughtered my family.

    The Dark Side, Bastila, becoming Dark Lord of the Sith... it was all worth it, but the consequences of my actions have scarred me for life.

    Great line from "Wreck-It Ralph" that had me cracking up for minutes, "When did videogames become so violent and scary?!" :)

    You wanna claim "old school" status bub?

    I lay down the gauntlet then.

    Alien Isolation is being released tomorrow at midnight. It is a direct sequel to Ridley Scotts 1979 hit Alien.

    No auto saves.
    No weapons (of consequence?)
    An Alien THAT CAN'T BE KILLED
    Survival Horror at its best

    Play on HARD and report back here so I may indulge in your salty tears

    "Video games have matured."

    No they haven't but I wonder if in 40-50 years time, nursing homes will come equipped with by then vintage games consoles to engage dementia patients.

    Grow up.
