F*CKING PONG!
« on: 20 Jun 2006, 20:23 »

I have FUCKING PONG IN MY BASEMENT RIGHT NOW! Oh yeah, I am the olde schoole. Coleco's Telco system, and it's pong, with the optional hockey and the 1 player setup where it's you versus a wall. Also the easy, medium and hard levels. It's so bizarre to me, because it's just all dials and switshes and stuff. The only button on the thing is a big rouded, spring loaded reset button. Anyways, it's really kickass and I rock out at it, especially when drunk. Best party game ever.

Best game ever? Hardly. First game ever? Possibly (first of note anyways).

First does not equal best, but having Pong in your basement is pretty ace.

Which Commander Keen game came with Ye Olde Pong included? I think it was #4.

Thus, Commander Keen 4 >> Original pong.

(because, you know, its pong on top of a whole 'nuther cool game)

I kind of want to play Pong on a digital projector in my school, Like on one of them huge screens in the auditorium. That'd be freaking sick. Maybe I could set up a charity pong tournament like that?

Oh, and Galaga apparently only goes up to level 99. I got passed it once and it started over at 1. I got to 23 the second time through - 122 total.

PS: As for tetris, a grad student from UT who sat next to me in the plane was playing tetris on his gameboy. He made it cool. On the other hand, the Miss WSVG contestants who had no real gaming experience used "Tetris is the only game I'm good at" as an excuse for their "favorite game."

And I'd hate to say it, but "That makes baby Jesus cry."

You sound suspiciously like my girlfriend. Do I take it you have also removed the stairs from the pool whilst the sims are swimming in order to drown them? Built walls around them to trap them within a 1x1 room until they die from hunger in a pool of their own excretions? EVIL I tells ya.

Though it was fun in Sims 2 when we got a sim swimming around in a concrete floor. Ah, the hilarity.
