A 99 dollar Nintendo 3ds this Black Friday?


Wait what what?  I’ve been looking at getting a 3ds… and this might be the incentive I need to pick one up!  Now my only question is… is the 3ds XL worth the extra money?   I’m sure this one would be great for my daughters… but I’m thinking I’ll need the bigger screen!

The white looks awesome too.  I’d probably go with the black one though if I had the choice!   The verge says:

“Nintendo’s focus may be shifting to the upcoming Switch handheld / console hybrid, but now is a good time to grab a 3DS if you haven’t yet. The much-anticipated Pokémon Sun and Moon launch on November 18th, while a new handheld version of Super Mario Maker is due out on December 2nd.”

So that sounds pretty promising too..  I also dig this Special Edition Lime Green 3ds xl photo below:
For 199.00 click here with a ton of great reviews too.
So many choices!

Which will you get?

Christmas comes late for my PC with a EVGA GeForce GTX 960

evga geforce gtx 960I picked up the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 because of all the great reviews and it looked like the best bang for my buck.  I bought it off of Amazon Click here to buy to help me with my real time editing with CS 5.5 Premiere pro.   I know the software is a bit dated but if it isn’t broken don’t fix it right?

I have to say this video card is a lot longer then the card I had in before…  It also I found with the black plastic case harder to install in my Cooler master Haf 932 case.   Not Big deal though… I just added a screw to the install and it all worked well.

evga geforce gtx 960 vs zotac gtx 560ti

The Zotac GTX 560ti worked great for 3 solid years… never an issue one bit… It also played PC games well too.   I might find it a new home in a new editing system.  We will see if the budget can handle it.

I had to take off my cable management due to the card being longer then my last card.   You can see here.  I did trim the plastic on the cable management and now it fits just fine.   You don’t see much when you close the case see photo below.

Got myself some more info on my c64

back of my c64

Rickr over at this forum has been helping me out.  I needed this photo to have him help me hook this up.

Rickr suggested I get one of these C64-SD-card-SD2IEC-SDrive-1564-LCD-SD-card

I just have to see if this old c64 from 1988 still powers up!

More on this adventure soon..


C64 ftw in 2016!

c64 ready for 2016

I promised myself in 2015 that I would see if my original one owner c64 still worked… I have yet to power it up (I’ll be doing a video on it btw) but I just hope it still works after all these years.  I bought this back in 1988.  This isn’t the original monitor.  I had a monitor but got lost in a storage war!   This JVC unit actually has better resolution than the old one so it might be more gooder!    Now I just have to find out what the c64 flash drive thing is.  I got some advice from a twitter post I posted months ago.  I might have to go back and see what those links where!   Unless someone can help a brother out!

Spy vs. spy by mad magazine for the nes

  Who remembers the comic spy vs. spy in the classic mad magazine?  I loved that magazine as a kid!  Twisted sick humor at its best!  Well they made a game for it on the Nes!  More known on the  Commodore 64 computer than the Nintendo entertainment system but still a great game.  To find this in great condition in the box is petty rare these day.  See photos below  

 and the cart is in A+ shape! 

 this one gives me the urge to unbox my Nes and give this one a few hours of game play! 



did I just pass up on a great deal???


I went to Digital press Videogames this last week.  I go there every 8 weeks (like clockwork) and they had a Turbo Grafx 16… they never have one of these… it was $299.95… I knew it was a good deal but with Christmas and all I couldn’t spring for it.  I passed on it… I picked up these two NES games instead… see video below or past post…

So did I mess up?  If I can calculate my Christmas expense and this item is still there… i might have to spring for it.
