So excited for this… the only weird thing is I don't understand why it hasn't been available on pre-order yet. It's not even available for pre-order on Best Buy.

I'll plug it in to the basement TV. It doesn't have anything else plugged into it right now except a DVD player and the DirecTV, and maybe @NatalieB will get a kick out of it with her friends.

I've been waiting on this myself!! I still have my old NES but it's got issues. I ordered some parts to fix it, but they did not help

Old times. Got to get RC Pro Am, Metroid, Castlevania, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, Tecmo Bowl and Zelda.

RC Pro Am, forgot about that one! Great game. :-)

So looking forward to this. I'll probably play with this more than the Karma GoPro drone.

RC Pro AM was awesome!

On a side note,I am actually thinking of getting one of the racing drones like on the DRL with the goggles and what not. I talked with a friend about them yesterday. He owns an RC shop. They race them about 5 minutes from my house every weekend.

That's pretty cool and not too bad at $59.95.

I still have my old one and it still works.  Pull it out every once in a while and play all three Mario's.  It was a great system back in the day.

Cool how this one has all the Mario's, Donkey Kong , Contra, Punch Out and Galaga.

Wow, Christmas 1987 all over again!

IMO the best gaming console of all time... I have 2 of the original NES systems and 2 dozen or so games, which unfortunately only work intermittently... I am VERY excited for this, which is 1. smaller, 2. more reliable, and 3., has an HDMI hookup.

I'm planning to order it tomorrow and I might even gift one to my brother.

The best one was the SuperNes.

Depending on how the NES remake sells they probably will do the same for Super NES. I know SEGA is making one for their console. Luckily for me I still have my Super NES, I break it out every once in awhile. Still need to pick up a couple more games for it.

Nostalgia anyone?

I think it would wear off though after 10 minutes.. the games we have are just so much better it's not even close.

still cool though.

Play a lot less of them now, but I agree most of the new stuff is much better. There are some exceptions, like the ones I listed.

Those old games are built on the arcade format where you get 3 "lives" and 3 "continues". They were easy to learn, hard to play, and designed to suck up quarters. The resemblance to modern games is purely superficial. It's like comparing miniature golf and real golf.

    • Played Quail Brook today, birdied 16 in dramatic fashion. New one for the away composite.
    • I will be brief, since others have weighed in and I echo the vast majority of what they've said (plus I love bullet points).  Naga-Waukee War Memorial - 6 A fun course, architecturally interesting Several nice views Walkable Passes the "I'd play here often" test Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 Great Parkland golf.  I think the score suffered a little because all the other courses were so unique, but if this place were near my house it'd be one of the better courses available to play publicly. Walkable Firm, well-maintained greens with interesting contours Good combination of tough holes and less-challenging ones Not many real recovery options on a bad shot - most often, you're punching out from trees or laying up from a fairway bunker Passes the "I'd play here often" test  Favorite hole: #16 Lawsonia Links - 8 Unique and visually interesting Walkable Well-maintained greens with interesting contours, with play varying based on hole location (2) Par-3's were too long for me to really enjoy playing them Too many blind tee shots Some of the most fun approach shots I've had to play Passes the "I'd drive a couple hours to play here" test Favorite hole: #7 Mammoth Dunes - 8 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways Turns out, I really enjoy "resort golf".  Separation value (which @iacas) referred to above is different for a 14-hcp...I liked that a wider range of shots were rewarded, but you still have to hit the ball solidly. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test Sand Valley - 8.5 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways This is an aspirational course for me - breaking 90 the second day, even from an easier set of tees, felt like a real accomplishment...something I had to work damn hard for.  This is the kind of course I want to be good enough to play well.  At the end of the day, that's what ticked it 0.5 above Mammoth Dunes. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test
    • Our school district announced that they are going back to masks. It will be required for anyone under the age of 11, and then strongly recommended for anyone not vaccinated and recommended for anyone vaccinated. My wife (vaccinated) will likely wear one. My son will have to wear one. Honestly, I’m a little relieved. I think it’s the right choice, given the circumstances. There are probably better ways to do it, but they would involve mandating the vaccine for students and staff. I’m betting that’s coming before the start of 2022, but this is good enough in the interim. 
    • Working with my instructor on some simple grip and setup issues. I actually shortened my driver shaft and regripped with the same grip(gotta love pure grips) after testing some things out. I then added a bit of throw in the DS as mentioned in the last post to get some nice high ball flights with lots of carry and no more bottom half strikes. I am really liking the extension post impact, might need to work on the upper center getting a bit more forward but good progress for now. I don't need as much of a Bubba move as @saevel25 pointed out that I had at SV to counter an over rotating clubface. This will be counted as my yearly swing thread post with video. 😉  
    • This drill will help more for that. Try and keep the right elbow from bending more than 90 degrees too.
