Meant to post this Thursday but the new TV is up and the entertainment center is functional again. I wasn't really expecting the difference between 49" and 55" to be so dramatic but this thing feels almost too big. Glad I didn't get the 65" one.


Seriously Amazon? I preordered this a year ago.


TV stand is finished! It's cut to the right shape, painted black, and has little rubber feet all over the bottom so it doesn't slide around. Now I can FINALLY set up the TV when I get home from work!


Since the TV is currently not up I took the opportunity to put tin foil over the foam board covering the windows in the game room. It's not perfect but it makes a noticeable difference when the lights are out.


Amazon really dropped the ball. I'm painting a board of wood for my new TV to sit on so I ordered primer and sandpaper with same day shipping and black paint with next day delivery. Both orders are late a day so I have no TV until Thursday.


Update on me smashing my TV: I bought another one from Best Buy and it turns out all TVs now have done away with the center stand. So I had to buy a board of wood to fit its wide feet from Lowes and primer and paint so it won't look like shit in my setup.


Got mad at Spaltfest results. Threw controller at ground. Controller left hand early. 4K TV is fucked. Literally earlier today my phone fell of my counter and cracked. Seriously considering going to the gun range and renting a gun to blow my head off with


Went to a local burger place and damn do they have good food! Burgers are better than Five Guys, fries are like McDonalds only seasoned, and I got both those and their homemade lemonade for $8.50. If you're in Cincinnati, Ollie's Trolley in OTR is great!


First day at my new security job site today. Good things: $3 an hour pay raise, 1st shift, I have weekends off, I can play handhelds during downtime, maybe free beer sometimes (it's a brewery) Bad thing: I'm stuck alone in this fucking shack for 8 hour


Grilled up some flat iron steak for dinner on the Webber tonight. Came out exactly how I like it.


I was going to fix the 32X today by cannibalizing the ribbon cables from my spare 32X that hums but for some reason it decided to magically start working flawlessly again. Whatever, as long as the stupid ugly mushroom plays Space Harrier I'm happy.


Dreamcast is back from the doctor. HDMI mod now works plus she has a socketed clock battery, self-repairing fuse on the controller board, and a whisper quiet Nocta fan installed.


The Kingdom Hearts Marathon has hit as snag. That snag is KH1's combat is fucking terrible and I'm having a miserable time playing it. So I'm going to watch the story on YouTube and move on to the next one. Wish I hadn't wasted 8 hours.


I've got the whole week off this week because work fucked up my transfer. So I'm going to try to get through Kingdom Hearts The Story So Far. Hopefully I have enough time/willpower.


Installed the GBC backlight mod. Gotta say it looks really nice. Now I can live out my childhood fantasy of being able to clearly see the screen on my Gameboy Color.


Fireworks show was awesome! Happy Birthday America!


Fucking Kansas is playing at my 4th of July fireworks show.


I know that the colors are way brighter than they're supposed to be but god damn does my PCE Duo have awesome RGB output. Look how sharp those pixels are. And there are no jailbars or color issues at all when viewed with eyes. Love this system!


I just counted and I've got 654 games for all the consoles hooked up to my TV (Minus the GBPlayer). I was honestly expecting this to be in the 400 range. It's important to note this doesn't include handheld games. I have 264 of those.


Are Kinder eggs legal in the US now or is my grocery store breaking the law by importing these?


Just ordered a pizza and am sitting down to play Mario Maker. Perfect way to spend a Friday night!


My package from Japan was delivered! This baby is totally tricked out with both an RGB video mod and a region switch so she can play US Turbografx 16 games.


Yay! My EMS package only spent 3 hours in customs and is now in the Chicago USPS hub ready to be sent out. It'll probably be delivered tomorrow.


I fucking hate texting. It's so god damn inefficient. I just spent 15 minutes explaining something that would have taken two if the stupid millennial would have just answered their fucking phone when I called them. My generation sucks.


My housemate and I are trying out our new grill for the first time.


It's nice when you go to the dentist and all that happens is they clean your teeth and tell you to keep doing what you're doing. Brushing twice a day and flossing before bed keeps the cavities away.

Hi everybody! My name's Peter and I live in Ohio. I was introduced to gaming on that fateful Xmas where I got a SNES with Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country. All these years later and I love gaming more then ever!
