  1. I let it sit for about 2 hours the first time. Upon learning it, did it for about 5 hours the next day, and left it plugged the next day. Sadly nada. I sold it, noting it's condition. Unfortunately there's no way I could muster the stability to do the soldering for a new battery (my hands shake really bad)
  2. Just a general warning... Don't leave your Vita idle for months uncharged. Internal battery dies. RIP, Vita. Vita no longer meant life for this unit.
  3. local greek import store has a nescafe blend that's really good. Strong, so gotta watch how much you put in otherwise you just get blasted by dark roast as far as coffee places... well when I'm in Ohio there's a place called High Octane coffee. It's really good and their espresso is also pretty good in both taste and "kicking your butt into gear". In Baltimore, Joann's in Dundalk is really good. They opened >just< before COVID and I was afraid they wouldn't make it through the shutdowns but they are still there and bustling! for franchise coffee.... Panera's Hazel
  4. Saw some talk that scalpers are having trouble reselling their Battle Styles hoarding. I really hope this is the case and the scalping stops and people just looking for stuff can find it.
  5. Lotta folks seem to be coming back it seems. The Den lives on.
  6. well this threads lasted 5 years because that's the average time in DQ7 to get to the class system part
  7. uh some Mint Tea which is apparently good for digestive health... not too much adventurous drinking from me due to a medicine's reaction with alcohol which I learned the hard way. I just try to visit different places when I travel and try their coffee or teas
  8. I live in a city and it's hard to find public raids. In a small town in Ohio, go to a park, and suddenly there's 10+ people there remote or in person.
  9. wooooo FOUR Rayquazas in this weekend's event in Go. No shiny. But now I have Kyogre, Groudon and Rayquaza.
  10. Spent Tuesday-Friday in Niagara NY. Falls were nice. But there was a park slightly north that I thought took the cake. Just a really great location. I said this a few times (below), and the gf thought I was insane.
  11. this just reminds me of how nuts SaGa 2 was. This guy's your teacher and mentor, and your dad abandons your character as a child by jumping out their bedroom window as Indiana Jones
  12. would really like a shiny Zygarde. No one seems to like that guy lol
  13. yeah folks do a lot of dumb stuff like this..... still think one half of New Jersey is a racetrack with all the speeding/swerving I see every time
  14. Drove from Baltimore to New Haven, back to Baltimore... 11 hours. and tomorrow, 5 to Ohio yeaaaaaahhhh but at least I have some days off of work next week.
  15. It's kind of remarkable that the sprites for this game were never fully ripped. Did folks simply not care (hard to believe) or is there some draconian (HEH) protection on those assets in the game?
  16. found this! I remember this game. Just a nice cover art so I got it anyway
  17. Unfortunately now is a very bad time for the card game, for new and older sets alike. Logan Paul did a pack opening video and just ignited a huge trend of people not even into Pokemon buying them up for youtube videos like that. Hoarding and scalping it out of control. My local stores have been consistently cleaned out since December.
  18. The first bluray for this on Amazon Japan is constantly out of stock. Hope a western blu ray release happens at some point too. --holy crap this post bumped my profile to Grandmaster of Gotha, I've been on the DQ4 for like a decade lol
  19. do folks still play Pokemon Go? I started it a year and half ago. At level 35 right now. Just learned how to evolve Magneton today and he became a 2900 CP Magnezone. Not bad. my second highest under 3233 Metagross. Which means I probably dont want to run into fire types in the high level metagame
  20. Sony radio my grams gave me in 1998 for my birthday
  21. They are built on the same general model, which I think was largely spawned by Dungeon Master... which was also an Amiga game, but ported to DOS and is generally a 1:1 conversion. Most games for the Amiga platform went to DOS, but some ports were not as good, visually and audibly. Heroquest is a good example, 1st image is Amiga, 2nd is DOS.
  22. Black Crypt right now. Really neat dungeon crawl RPG. Amazing pixel artwork throughout.
  23. I got the "official" Amiga emulator. The one made by programmers of the original platform. Amazing computer platform. The games on it are so good and have a visual look that's amazing even today. but besides that, life has been:
  24. there's going to be a huge mental health epidemic whenever this COVID stuff finally starts to subside in like a year or two at this rate who knows. Between taking care of my mom and work and the latter seemingly not very caring about the former I am reaching a limit myself.
  25. got a retrogames VIC-20 replica. It's basically a C64 Maxi with a VIC-20 skin, limited apparently. Loaded a game from my early childhood on it. Elite. I was too dumb to figure this out as a kid, so I'd usually just end up shooting the station you launch from and fighting the cops. Brings back memories
