Recent Pick Up: Game Boy Advance And Mortal Kombat 4 For The Game Boy Color

8 04 2014

Went to one of a couple local flea markets here in Calgary last Sunday (April 6, 2014) and grabbed this Game Boy Advance and a copy of Mortal Kombat 4 for the Game Boy Color. Nothing fancy, but I did need an original Game Boy Advance since mine went missing several years ago, and as for the Mortal Kombat 4 cartridge… well, it was included. Got both of them for $20 Canadian.

22 10 2013

So I finally managed to score a classic Mego 2-XL educational robot shaped 8-track playing toy. The device asks you questions, and you choose multiple choice answers, pushing the corresponding answer button. Simple but cool, I really wanted one of these when I was a kid…And now I have one!

Check out the crappy demo’s I made below:

Just me playing the great arcade game port of Space Fortress on the Bally Astrocade. The original arcade game was called Space Zap, something I couldn’t remember when I was recording the video.

Check out my video below:

To get a better idea how good this console was, check out the original arcade game in this video I found on Youtube:

The New Star Trek Movie: Did you happen to notice those two doohickeys on the console in front of Chekov and Sulu?

22 05 2009

Wow, did I like this movie. They did such a great job creating a great movie, and resetting the series to boot. One thing , though, made me laugh out loud.

I have noticed that through out the history of Star Trek, many mundane everyday sort of objects end up being used as props for their mildly futuristic looking designs. I was very happy to see that J.J. Abrams has continued with this tradition. You see, i work as a manager in a retail office supply store called… well lets just call the place Paperclips, anyway, at our cash registers are equipped with bar code scanners from a company called Symbol. Funny thing is, the bridge of the Starship USS Enterprise (NCC-1701) is also equiped with the very same scanners!

Yep, here I am watching this (AWESOME!) movie when I get the first glimpse of the bridge, and right there in front of everything are two of these Symbol bar code scanners. I actually laughed out loud when I saw them. Check out the pictures below for yourself.
