  1. Here is some truth about me. I don't talk about myself online. Do your research, I'll wait. While you are gone I'll just talk a bit about how Epic literally took the idea of what a game should be and created it. They gave everything their target audience could ever want in a sandbox with an...
  2. [img] I remember when this ad was first printed. I couldn't wait to get this game. So many cool weapons and possibilities. But would it be as fun to play as they made it seem? Yeah, it was! They sure don't make them like this anymore. -Another World
  3. I decided to make a Twitter account as a learning exercise. I pretty much abhor social networking at this level but have come to realize that the jobs I am looking for require things like Twitter and Facebook experience. So, I made a Twitter account (@AW_GBAtemp). I am going to use it to post...
  4. [img] "The air powered game where the puck glides on a cushion of air, over 750 air jets!" Quick Shot Hockey was released by Ideal (Hollis NY) in 1975. The game is a table top air hockey game designed for 2 players. The game measures approximately 2' 10" by 17". The entire frame is made out of...
  5. Ralph Baer created Simon, a game of memory, in 1978. Following the success of Simon many companies released "clones" that more-or-less provided the exact same experience. Castle Toy's Einstein, released in 1979, was once such imitation.<br><Br>[img] [img] Unlike Simon, Einstein is rectangular in...
  6. [img] Jollibee is a Filipino fast food restaurant that you probably wouldn't know about unless you were Filipino or from one of the major US cities. The company always has some type of great promotion going and usually the kids-meal toys benefit from them. I'm not sure of the history of the...
  7. [img] Space Pinball.... I feel like that should be read using extreme reverberation, creating an echo only the Gods could be proud of! Space Pinball is the prototype name given to the Virtual Boy game titled Galactic Pinball. Aside from their common pinball theme, puck shaped "ball", and space...
  8. [img] I'm not really sure what this is an advertisement for, LOL. But who wouldn't want to pre-order that sexy thing? -another world
  9. [img] Another great thrift store find. I picked one of these up for $2.99 the other day. It requires 4AA batteries. The controls are a bit stiff and I hate American Football, but how do you pass up a LCD 2-player handheld from 1987. The unit itself is in very good condition. There are a few...
  10. [img] Before many of you panic, lol, I wanted to type a really quick blurb. I've retired from Magazine Staff and have been respectfully moved into the Former Staff category. The reasons for doing so are very simple, I've found something important in life that requires my full attention (--no...
  11. [img] i picked up this keychain the other day for $5. it's made by bioworld and copyrighted 2010. the company makes a bunch of other nintendo themed keychains, but i'm a retro gamer and this one caught my eye. the keychain is a thick bendable rubber. everything on the keychain is raised giving...
  12. Those that know me know that I love obscure video game systems. Today I was out xmas shopping and stopped by a store called Tuesday Morning. For those not familiar with it, they stock all types of stuff from kitchen aids to toys. Today happened to be a 50% off sale for specialty marked clearance...
  13. [img] i picked this up at a flea market for $5. it came with batteries. it was one of those deals where the guy goes "yeah it works, the light turns on". after i explained to him that the light doesn't mean its working, only that it has power, i got the deal. i like these plug and play games...
  14. [img] nothing has more sex appeal than this advertisement. ha! read more about the arcade game here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_Space i had a chance to play a red shell version at an arcade exhibit. i pumped more than a few coins and had a lot of fun. -another world
  15. I received some Acekards for BETA testing today. I thought I would take a quick photo because they shipped factory direct. Many users will never get to see the Acekard before it is fully assembled and shipped out. This photo should also put to reset the rumor that Flash Kits come preassembled...
