Oh, and so's you know... when I mentioned to my sister that I was setting up this retropie thing to play Sega and Nintendo games, her response?

This is Juan's fault.

Fun, though.

I'm going to hold off trying Playstation games on it until the heatsinks arrive in the mail. It's got a ton of Sega Master System games on it though!

Yessss, yesss, feel the nostalgia flow through you!

I wouldn't worry about the heatsink. Been doing this for years and never put one on there.

Also... only a step away now from doing this:

When hobbies collide! I got Soul Calibur VI for Xmas, and quite frankly the character creator in it is as much fun as the game itself. So I created the last two D&D campaign's parties in there as players. Getting them out of the game for a bit of photoshoppage isn't quite as straight forward. But fun none the less!

Juan, with a stock RetroPie install, what are the keys for insert coins with the MAME emulator?

IIRC whatever you chose for start and select when you configured your controller. At least that's how I've always had it set up.

Started playing Tomb Raider 2013. It's fun, but linear as hell, and it loves cutscenes. Lots and lots of cutscenes. And 'Press X To Not Die' moments. I also don't like how Lara tends to look like she's been rolling in mud fairly often.

Fun game, though.

After about a week I uninstalled "Getting Over It". Too hard and I was playing it too much. I even edited the game files to change the gravity setting but it really did not make the game any easier. The developer is a freaking sadist.

Still playing too much War Thunder.  Returned to Jagged Alliance 2 for another go.  Should try the 1.13 update sometime...

My son has went from playing best fiends to angry birds to know plants vs zombies, so I am playing that and soon to be painting them on a pedal or two.

I am playing Super Smash Brothers Ultimate to try and get better to beat my brother in it and rub it in until he cries and begs for mercy.

Tooting my own Horn, 2019 edition!  8) I made some of the boss characters for Darksiders III and finally got around to making a couple renders.

I am not a gamer... let me start with that.

My son had gotten me interested in a game he has for the PS4. It's called Just Cause 3 (I think it is an old game but, I am not savvy with these things) I have been playing it off and on for a few days now. I love the gameplay and the story line. It is occasionally buggy and it crashes every once in a while but it is none-the-less very fun.

My problem is a facet of the game where you have to grapple from rooftop to rooftop in a short amount of time to disable "audio monitors." This in itself is extremely frustrating and almost makes me not want to play the game. They give you 1:19 to repel all over town to disable 6 monitors and it seems damn near impossible.

Anyone have any ideas or hints on how to get these stupid things disables in time?
