I got a real return to the scene of the crime feeling right now.

But anyway, here we go again, Game Room!

Welp. Don't know how I find myself here once again, but I guess it's time for another marathon.

Oh man, I can still remember being 13 and riding my bike up to the local shitty K-Mart that had a shitty pizza buffet with a shitty arcade attached to it in the same shopping center. Mardi Gras Games and Pizza, or something like that. While my friends and I played stuff like X-Men Arcade and Captain Commando, Crystal Castles was one of the games that would only ever get used by the creepy old dudes (mid-30's was pretty damn old to me at the time) that had no business hanging out in an arcade packed with middle school aged kids. ~Memories~

Watching this again, I wonder how Jeff's Yars' Revenge challenge ended.

Listen to Jeff's voice... so full of hope... so full of joy.

How soon did all that go away from him?

If prices weren't as high as they are, I'll consider this emulated thingie.

Isn't this just great? We have Game Room on Xbox and Steam and GOG on PCs. Old games will never die! That's awesome.

Looks awesome, although I dunno whether or not (or how much) I want to buy. Have MAME stashed away somewhere already. Guess I'd be a little more motivated to actually play these games if I bought them but even then, it's tough to say.

Well after trying it I may uninstall it..I was excited about it but the interface is Wonky and Janky...
I would have preferred a 3rd person "actually walk around" rather than the perceived movement of travel...
I would have also preferred 1 large arcade room sectioned off with larger areas to contain certain motifs...
Live Arcade IMHO does retro way better than Gameroom...and while you'll never see Outlaw on Live Arcade, a 1 play of the demo gives me my nostalgia fix for the next 20 years...I remember thinking when playing these games...man wouldn't it be cool if the game looked like the box-art..well now they do in 2010 and I can't justify the price tag for a couple minutes of "gee remember when"...neat idea to a niche but failed in the execution

i tried this earlier and it forced me to download the game packs, i did that, and then half way through the loading bar it froze and i had to reboot the game. when i came in the second time i looked for the games which apparently came with the packs and they were nowhere to be found. piece of shit.
