wow.. I wish I had the chips.. and the patience.. and ultimately, my own place.. to even begin to think about possibly trying to do something like that.

Kudos, Catch, Mastrmynd!! :-)

Let me know if there's any way to recreate the old Intellivision system!

This setup will do Intellivision and Colecovision and a host of other emulation.  The beauty of it is...you don't have to put it in a cabinet, you can just plug it up to a TV or monitor like a regular game system.  You can even use PS3 wireless controllers with it.  It's totally versatile.

You, sir, are the man Catch!
You've been missed.
I'm good.
I've done a few commercials here and there, but no Marvel movies yet. Not even Panther. (Hurt my heart! Didn't even get an audition)

My wife had a heart attack, but she's slowly getting better.
Almost moved to Boston.

I'm about to buy an Xbox One (refurbished)

Right on to the real and death to the fakers!  Peace out!

Damn, man!  Sorry to hear about your wife.  I hope she gets well soon!  We don't need you in Boston, you're in ATL, the new Hollywood! 

Refurbished is the way to go.  I bought a refurbished 360 many years ago and it's still kicking.  I went with the PS4, but I'm going to get an Xbox One after the summer when the girls are done with their activities. 

I missed being here, man...but I'm back! LOL

Sid Meier's Civilization V: Brave New World is a computer strategy game that gives gamers an opportunity to create a What If? scenario in world history. My scenario was...
---What if the Indigenous Native American tribe, The Iroquois knew that the Americans were coming to invade their territory?


Using one of the most formidable war units in the game, The Mohawk Warrior, the player can crush george washington, the British traitor fleeing persecution and bring his entire sneaky 'nation building' world domination operation to a screeching halt.  Before the last blow is ultimately dealt, the player is rewarded with this great cut scene of defeat where washington says,


"The Day Is Yours... I Hope You Will Be Merciful In Your Trials."

Female Basketball Players Are Coming to ‘NBA Live 19’
by Stephanie Fogel




Basketball fans can soon create female players in “NBA Live” for the first time in the franchise’s history, publisher Electronic Arts announced on Friday.

When “NBA Live 19” launches, people can make a female character in the Create-a-Player mode and compete in the Streets World Tour, Live Events, Live Run, and more.

“The inclusion of female players is an important step toward leveling the playing field, providing gamers increased opportunities to express their unique individuality and create a reflection of themselves while competing in the game,” EA said.

“This new feature follows last year’s introduction of the WNBA’’s full roster in the ‘NBA Live’ franchise, also a video game first.”

I still don't have a PS3, PS4, XBox1, etc.

I haven't played any of these basketball games in years.  How difficult are they to engage with?  can you let go or trade players at will?  (I'd want to build a Pistons team with Lebron..)
Are there codes needed to unlock a lot of teams and players?  do you have to pay extra money for download material?

Set aside my PS3 for now. Working on something special.  ;)

Hype, you can always get those units refurbished at a later date.  Plus, they're in much better shape technically when upgraded...  ---and cheaper in cost, too!

EA Sports and 2K creates the greatest sports games on the planet right now.


Every aspect, every detail, everything you know about professional sports can be done in these games. Seriously.  The player can customize the game settings to their own personal specifications.

The production values are extremely high; makes the player feel as if they visited the arena for a night...  ---or a day.

Survivor of 'Madden NFL' Shooting Sues EA
by Patrick Shanley

One of the survivors of Sunday's fatal shooting at GLHF Game Bar in Jacksonville, Florida, during a sanctioned Madden NFL 19 e-sports tournament has filed a lawsuit against game publisher EA, the bar and Jacksonville Landing LLC, among others.

Jacob Mitich, who competed at Sunday's event and survived the shooting after being shot twice, is represented by the law firm Morgan & Morgan. The suit was filed in the Circuit Court of the Fourth Judicial Circuit in Duval County, Florida.

“Like many of his friends, Jacob Mitich traveled to Jacksonville last weekend to do what he loved. He trusted the event host and organizers, and believed that he was walking into a safe space," attorney James Young of Morgan & Morgan said. "That trust was shattered when shots rang out in an overcrowded, since-shut-down, non-permitted space.

Combined with an alleged abject failure to provide adequate security, the result was tragic.

We are bringing this lawsuit to hold those responsible accountable, and to ensure that gamers like Jake are able to get together to pursue their passion without having to fear for their lives.”

Mitich is suing on the grounds of negligence on the parts of EA, the bar and the related Chicago Pizza & Sports Grille, as well as the management companies of the Jacksonville Landing area of downtown Jacksonville.

“As a direct and proximate result of the negligence of Defendant EA, the Plaintiff, Jacob Mitich, suffered bodily injury in and about his body and extremities, resulting in pain and suffering…loss of earnings, loss of the ability to earn money and/or a diminished earning capacity,” the lawsuit claims.

The suit seeks an injunction that orders EA to fully vet future venues to “ensure the safety of participants.”

EA responded to the shooting earlier this week, promising to "work with our partners and our internal teams to establish a consistent level of security at all of our competitive gaming events."

They also canceled planned Madden NFL 19 qualifying events in the future.

On Thursday, EA announced it would be donating $1 million to victims' families and also set up the Jacksonville Tribute fund to raise money for those affected by the shooting.
