Opinions, I Need Them

So I'm building a fight stick from a gutted 360 controller and a block of wood and I need some opinions on the decal. DF suggested a Woodman decal as a joke, but I love it, so I got to work. I have five right now, and will tweak them based on some of the comments I got in the Steamtoid chat, and any feedback I get here.

Well, which do you think has the most promise? Personally, I like the trees in the background, but I wouldn't mind changing it up.   read

The Fruit of my Boredom

Today is one of those days where you don't really want to do anything, especially anything productive. Well, at least it was for me. While I have just come across the golden treasure that is the Sega Saturn, and its most beautiful child, Dragonforce (which I have pumped almost 35 hours into in the last 5 days), I just couldn't bring myself to pick up the controller. Instead, I lurked around the forums a bit, and after noting a reaction to my avatar, decided to do something completely useless:

Photoshop a picture of course.



My mind is a strange place full of psychedelic colours, giant mutant dino/lizards with mustaches, and other assorted oddities. Sometimes I wonder if my mind would explode, allowing the terrifying things within to pour into the world if I didn't make a stupid looking picture once a month.

Of course, I don't dare try it to see what happens. Dante's Inferno's got nothin' on me.... *ugh....*   read

My Special Find

I had gone out for the weekend looking for some new stuff. As such I decided to explore the most boring looking Mall in the area. Needless to say, that turned out very well. Originally I had only decided to go in because there was a HockShop, where I can usually find some good NES games cheaply priced. And other than the copy of Wind Waker that a friend picked up for $15, the HockShop was a disappointment (Though they had 3 copies of Mario/Duckhunt for 3 different prices wtf).

Then I stumbled across this gem.

Those are all NES/Snes/Sega games.

I fell in love with a room. Seriously. I want to marry it, move in, and pillage. I'm sure that says something about me on a subconscious level, but I don't care!



Them be some Japanese unlicensed NES carts in the corner. Awesome! Problem is, they know exactly how much they can charge for shit. Those were $30-40 each.



Consoles. Lots of consoles. N64s, Snes, Dreamcasts, Sega Saturn, NES, and a few things I can't recognize in the picture.



Some Xboxs, 3DOs, Ataris, PSones, some more Sega stuff (master system, genesis, CD), I think there is a Commodore in there too. So, this store really owns, it would be better if they didn't know how much they could get away with charging for stuff. There was a copy of FF7 there for $100. And I'm sure someone will buy it too.



MORATL KOM...Wait... Marvel vs Street fighter? This would be more awesome if the P1 forward worked. I just tatsumaki a lot. Made me sad.



And this is a wall of fun.
Left to right: WWF, PGA, D&D, Virtua Fighter 4, MLB, Spider Man, Area 51

All in all I spent $15 on Virtua Fighter, and some on food and such. I'm going back soon. What should I be looking to buy when I go back? They have everything.   read
