I got the regular switch, as I bought it just about a couple of months after it officially launched. I was thinking of getting the OLED, but decided to hold off because I play the system in dock mode nearly all the time.

Ah, the Nintendo Gamecube. I have fond memories of it, personally. I bought the system back at 2004 and the first game I bought for it was Super Smash Bros Melee. I played that game for weeks on end and the second game I bought was Metroid Prime. It took me awhile to get into the game and like it because I was not too fond of the game being an FPS. It felt like someone mixed Halo with Super Metroid. Now, I regard the game as an all time classic, and I wish we would get Metroid Prime 4. Ah, maybe in the future, perhaps. I also got Luigi's Mansion and Super Mario Sunshine, a month later. I managed to get a pretty good collection. Too bad it got destroyed in a fire. I did manage to get some of my collection back, over the past decade. Anyway, I actually like the design of the Gamecube system, although I understand the criticisms of it from other people. And I find opening and closing the drive door to be very satisfying. And the controller design for the Gamecube, I find it to be one of the best for it's time.

Never was a owner back then although my friend had it, played a lot of smash.

As I got older though, I find it an easy to buy broken systems online and fix them. People love gamecube during the pandemic apparently. Very easy to mod with a modchip and play games from a microsd in the serial port 2 with an adapter, or get something called GC Loader which replaces the disc drive with a SD card solution.

Cost effective mods for those who love Nintendo.

Funny you say that because Earlier this year, I got a GC Loader board and replaced the cd drive with it. The GC Loader was super easy to install and I was able to play my backed up games via an SD Card.

I've been mostly playing a bunch of old school games, since the beginning of this year. I have been playing some DUSK, on my custom built Windows 7 machine. I played through the first and half of the second episode of that game last summer, but I never finished it. Perhaps this weekend, I will do just that. And I know the game isn't technically old school, but it is made to play like an old school shooter. I'm 41, so I grew up playing Quake style shooters.

I store my vintage consoles and games, right under my bed in boxes, along with my vinyl records. I also have a box, with a whole bunch of Xbox One games, tucked away in my closet.

I can't remember if it was Doom Eternal or Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, from last summer. I think it may have been Doom Eternal. I think I got Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War at a discount, can't remember. BTW, these are the PC versions I am referring to.

On my XP classic PC I recently built, I am playing Brothers in Arms: Earned in Blood. Not an easy game, let me tell you. The enemy A.I. are really smart and can be brutal, at times.

I have two. I have a smaller one stashed away, in my closet. I have a slightly bigger one, just sitting in my garage. I dunno if the one in my garage, actually works. And I guess the same with the one, in my closet.

Well, I think AMD has the upper hand this year. But we should wait for Intel to release their next CPU. If I read correctly, their upcoming CPU is codenamed "Frozen Lake." it might beat out Ryzen's fastest CPU, or it might be up to par with it. But all this heavy competition definitely benefits PC builders.
