One thing I miss from the old school arcade style games


Humor is reason gone mad
is the awnings they had so you could still play games in the daytime and be able to see the screen. Whenever I try to play my PS3 or Gameboy outside during the daytime, I can barely see anything except the glare of the sun or my own stupid fucking reflection.

Ha ha, jeez alright I made a simple typo! :rolleyes:

You have a Gameboy? What are you, 12? :action-sm
I have a game boy advance that I occasionally bring with me and I'm not really as concerned if it gets scratched or a little dented as if I had my PSP. Plus it takes up a lot less space to just slip into my pocket.

I drag my consoles onto my balcony at night on occasion. 12 stories up makes for a nice view. Toss in a big screen with some random game going? Even better view.

Miss Arcades in general. Go ditch $20 in quarters playing games from the 80's/90's? Nothing but fun.

On a side note, the PSP Vita is backwards compatible. Delicious as I shelled out for 4 RPG's I'd been hunting down for while.

Holy shit I want my money back from all the times I went to the change machine to play those fucking games,

it was a casino for kids but they could never ever win and all the adults could cleanup
So kloraferm is this outdoor/waterproof/solar powered PS3 a prototype or something? How can I get one?

I just unearthed my old Gameboy from the 80's and gave it to my 7 year old. He thinks its the best thing ever. Ya know what? His buddies crowd around that 3 inch screen and beg for a turn.

I have a GameBoy Advance SP as well as a Super GameBoy for the Super Nintendo and a GameBoy Player for the GameCube.

My favorite handheld is still the Atari Lynx model 2

What I really want to get is one of those multi game arcade cabinets and one of the cocktail tables (Anthony has one) they are just a little pricer than I would like and any licensed ones don't come with the Nintendo & Namco games - they each sell one for way to much money. The Nintendo has Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong jr, & Mario Bros - wish it had Donkey Kong 3 on it, and the Namco one has Ms. Pac-Man, Pac-Man, Galaga, Galaxian, and the fast version of Ms. Pac-Man & rapid fire Galaga.

I've heard Tempest (my favorite arcade game) is pretty good with a track ball

I soooo badly want either a MAME cocktail table or even just a Ms. Pac Man cocktail table.
