"So?" - Everyone who know what MAME is.

Oh. Well then, go fuck yourself, I suppose.

Did you design the website?  It's kind of neat, but something that's already readily available if you have a connection to the Internet.

But now collected on one website that's dedicated to preserving things, made easily accessible.  I've used emulators before and I usually give up on trying to find the games I want after awhile because I get tired of clicking around a ton of websites, some of which can't really be trusted.  All of this might have been available before, but I was still excited to see it all here.

*I* didn't know until I StumbledUpon it.

Whether or not it was useful to you, I submitted it in the spirit of being helpful to some of my fellow retro gamers.

Your dismissive comments come off as rude.

Well I think it's cool. All the fun of emulating without any of the computer viral risks. Too bad they don't have one of my favorite obscure games from my childhood: Peter Pack Rat.

I can see how it could be taken as ruder than intended. Apologies. Didn't mean to discredit the find as unhelpful, but comment on it not being as unique as some news articles advertised.

Far Cry 4 comes out next week and Gamespot has an article on how it can be beaten in about 15-20 minutes.


The short non-spoiler version- early in the game you're given a choice of options which are basically "Start the game" and "Do nothing." If you take the "do nothing" route, the game will indeed end uneventfully. In movie terms, it's like Breakfast Club if all the students just sat quietly.

Nice to see that they got the rights to The Who's Pinball Wizard.

FaceRig now has Team Fortress 2 avatars to use.  Right now it's just the Spy and Heavy.

It's an online Civ... MMORPG?


Looks like Asia only too at the moment, which is slightly relieving.

Good thing or I'd be spending most of this week at my parents playing that instead of visiting family or paying attention to my kids!
