I totally forgot about Pa Rappa the Rapper! My friends and I were obsessed with that when we were in college. I don't think the songs left my brain for a whole year!

I never played that game. I guess I always assumed it was a kids game. Is that true, or was it fun for all ages?

College gaming for me was typically Tekken or Twisted Metal.

I was always wondering what the little controller in people's signature was, and I finally clicked on one & I was so excited that I found this thread.

This is aging me a bit, and I don't know if it's technically a video game system, but does anyone else remember playing Munch Man on the TI gaming console? My friend and I sat & wasted an entire summer playing it.

I think it was a kids game. We usually stuck to Mortal Kombat, Tekken, and of course the sports games.
One of my friends bought it and we were making fun of him until we played it too. If it was for kids, it was pretty addictive. It's like that game Simon with the flashing lights, only there's a rapping puppy. I thought it was fun back then.

Simon is the greatest game EVAR. So terrific as a memory game. I used to love playing it. I would always run out of batteries though hahaha

Nibbles? Haha! I've never heard it called that before. Nope, I'm talking about the TI 99.

I think from 1982? The games weren't to bad, but I remember Munch Man as a very very bad version of Pac-Man, but instead of eating the ghost, it sounded like you were kissing them to death. 💋

Yeah! When you said TI I thought you meant the TI-83 (or 84, 85, etc.)

During Calculus classes in high school I had a TI-83 plus and you could download programs to play games. Some called the game "Snakes" or "Nibbles" after the Atari versions:

I know! I love it too, but even worse than the batteries running out - the light bulb burning out! Especially yellow - you can't tell unless you're in the dark.
That'll mess with your developing mind.

Oh that's where the "Nibbles" name is from!
Yeah, I had to buy a TI-83 for an Algebra class. I could barely work the darn thing, let alone download games on it. It's pretty sweet though, clear acrylic blue in a case.
You're right about the TI-99 though, it's Texas Instruments.

It was technically a kids game, though my brother was seven years older than me and we both loved it XD It was a great introduction to the PS1 controller and the songs were catchy as hell o.o Once you got into the later levels, it definitely felt like it was geared more toward late teens - especially that last spider level!

I still get the songs stuck in my head from time to time, especially with how often I had to play some of the levels >.> Definitely held replayable value though once you learned how to spice up the rhymes and get extra points.

Fuuu, now I have the driving song stuck in my head x.x

Lucky bastards >.< We only had that small portable simon game that had the rectangular buttons with the small red LED lights that lit up instead of the buttons themselves. When I was young, I was always so envious of the kids who had the legit version.

Does anyone else remember the game Lights Out? I used to hate it, yet somehow it became our ultimate go-to game whenever we were stuck in the car for extended periods of time (which was often since the nearest movie theater/grocery store/clothing store/etc was a half hour away and the nearest shopping mall was two hours away x.x).

Hmm....I don't remember Lights out, but how about these? Anyone remember playing with these while listening to Journey, or was it just me?

My grandma had both of these, and we loved them. Or, at least they beat out Lincoln Logs and Wonder Blocks.

We had the baseball one, it was kept in the camper. Then when someone was bored out of their minds we could at least have something to do while on family trips.

It was like a paceman ripoff. The map was actually raised plastic on the screen. It made a lot of beeping noises. My brothers and I played it a lot. Not sure when it was new, but we had it in he early 80s I'd guess.

Ummm...to answer your question:

My current problem game is Hearthstone.

I can play for HOURS....I MEAN HOURS...NEARLY DAYS.

I get sucked in and then turn around to look at the clock and it's 8 hrs later.

Ridiculous, it's just a card game LOL

Yeah, I was watching the tetris game during the writer's cam, and it was a little painful. I once played for over an hour without stopping and went into like a Tetris daze, it was not good.

I've never heard of Hearthstone, now I kind of want to play, but I think it might be hazardous to my health.

If you know what's good for you...YOU WILL NOT.

It's basically World of Warcraft with a twist of Magic the Gathering.

The game is free and you can pretty much work towards earning coins to pay for booster packs.

It's the nicotine of online card games.

A couple of months ago they also came out with an expansion/single player campaign.

If we never see or hear from you again, it's been a pleasure being your moderator.

Week of 9/8/14

Arkham Origins - Xbox 360

I got this game and Arkham City: GOTY at the same time & I can't remember which one is at my brother's & which one Batman's trapped on top of a gargoyle in.

.



Arkham Asylum just went free for PS3 on PSplus. Still no Arkham Origins though (at least not at that price point).

I know Penny Arcade mentioned this game more than once on their strip and in their comments.

I've played Arkham City and Origins but oddly enough I've NEVER played Asylum.

I'd imagine they're pretty much all the same? Would Asylum maybe just have less gadgets and villains?

O.O Oh wow! My older brother had this, and then I had it (7 years younger than him), and then I passed it on to my younger s-sister (8 years younger than me). It's such a simple game, yet the playability of it seems to surpass generations!

I think Nibbles was originally a game Microsoft created to demonstrate their new QBasic language. The style of game is much older, but the name elsewhere is an homage to the once ubiquitous Microsoft version.
