Nostalgia thread. The guy who thought Blades of Steel was the best hockey game is WRONG. WRONG.
To the bro who reminded me Lego Rock Raiders was a thing. I had pic related as a kid.
Any of you nerds have this shit? I had a similar kit from Radioshack.
To this day I still have not gotten the phrases "An energy crystal has been found!" and "A new cavern has been discovered!" out of my head. Fuck I wish I could get it to work..
I remember getting a crystal radio kit from Radioshack.
After making it and an hour and a half of my dad trying to explain to me how radios worked I was like, "It's just a bunch of bullshit wire wrapped around a tube, this shit is magic."
That 40298 on the box has a manufacturing datecode of Dec '98. Way after my time.
i had one of these
I use to jam a roll of paper caps in there and throw it out my second story window
neighbor thought it was a gunshot
I don't think he ever heard an actual gunshot before it wasnt /that/ loud but it was still cool
I feel like a stupid special snowflake for having more nostalgia over Mega Man 5 than the previous games (mainly 2, since its the most popular).
Dat music tho
commercials are the ultimate nostalgia bomb, they are played nonstop for a brief period of time, enough to get imprinted on your brain then gone never to be seen again
so when you do see it again it hits you hard
>$3.3k in 80's or 70's money
I always wondered what type work someone did that shelling out all this money for a computer back then made it worth it
like what the fuck were people even doing on these expensive ass computers back then
dunno man, crazy expensive, should be late 70's if I remember right
Only cause it makes me nostalgic for when my kids were little... watched that damn movie a gazillion times with them
I miss sitting home during a hot summer day just watching music videos all day
even if the song wasnt so great sometimes it had a cool video and made you appreciate the song a little more
First PSX game i saw
The graphics jump blew my mind
Here it is you filthy niggers!!!
I just found some of my old pogs in the attic
I'm missing my thick as fuck poison slammer
Astro Snicks from the early 80s. We got them when my dad was stationed in Germany. Did they have these in the states???
Best football game of all time. Fuck EA and fuck FIFA.
This game was so fucking fun but the gameplay itself as a Hockey game was far surpassed by NHL 94.
Here's one of my favs from when I was s lil nig.
fuck you buddy blaes of steel is best
this scared the everloving shit out of me as a kid
it didn't help that I was allergic to bees and already scared to death of them, but my dad would chase me around the room with it making buzzing noises and 'sting' me with it and yell AHHH
Still the best Gundam to this day. 08thMS is a close second with G-Gundam coming in 3rd as a joke with everything else shitting its pants at the starting line, especially that Unicorn bullshit.
I always hated this commercial
as you can see from the first seconds, it was played on cartoon network, during toonami
idk why they thought that would be a good target demographic
on top of which the commercial is super fucking long
god damn fucking anne murray
wish I had mine
my mom worked at the nursery department at a golds gym and donated most of my toys
i still have a few 12" GI Joe but that is pretty much it
also my NES and SNES I still have
that specific commercial is a little before my time, but i had a bunch of micro machines
although I was more into matchbox and hot wheels
my brother and I used to wear ice hockey gloves and hold hotwheels tracks and 'box' with them
idk why we thought hockey gloves would be a good idea because that protecto thumb was lethal and getting a regular shot in the head nearly gives a kid a concussion
and those tracks stung like a fucking bitch
this was my jam back in the day, i remember playing it on windows 95 and then decent 2 came out and blew my mind with its awesome cgi.
I about came when i heard about decent 3 and it was a massive let down.
