I had two of those extension cords for the controllers and used to snipe ducks from like 30 feet. It was great. :D

I didn't have Duck Hunt though on it's own cartridge - it came on the Mario 2/Duck Hunt/Olympics combo cartridge which is actually rare I hear...

Oh! They have this arcade downtown called "Ground Kontrol" (sic) where they have a ton of OLD arcade games - I mean like Asteroids, a ton of games with no textures (lines only), etc., etc. Anyway, they also have a TON of NES, Atari, etc. consoles, games and other stuff for sale. :D

If you like that old stuff, I assume you've heard of mame: http://www.mame.net/
Personally, someday (when I'm filthy rich) I'd like to own a cocktail version of 1942.

Seriously though, he actually had his computer case painted with the same paint that they use on yellow Lambos. :roll:

I'll ask you again when you're used to the 997... :wink:

It's the same story everytime a new model appears. When the 996 came out everybody said it's ugly etc. and now everybody thinks it's cool...
(including me) :)

My fave console was the SNES, with Street fighter 2 the reason for the purchase of that console.- my friend borrowed it and never returned it, however i do not worry as i now have his bicycle in my garage:)
I remember when i purchased snes sf2 wasn't out in Australia then, so i had to play teenage mutant ninja turtles which again was great. Much improved graphics c/f SEGA Mastersystem.

Gran turismo on PS1 was awesome for the advanced physics engine on the time.
I had a ps2 till a month ago, but figured that i needed the money so sold it and GT3.

Currently own an xbox, but not too many good car games although i have 5 or so car games..project gotham 2, collin mcrae 04, NFS underground, v8 supercars 2, midtown madness are the ones that spring to mind
If only xbox had something like GT series!

NO! :evil: ME!

It's my last chance to get a Type 996 911 Turbo before it's discontinued and I'll have to wait a few years before the ugly Type 997 911 Turbo comes out. :evil:
I'd much rather have a 911 GT3 RS. I'm in love with that...

I think they're going backwards... too 993 inspired, not as smooth and sexy as the 996...

they messed up!
