I'm pretty sure it's covered in the manual. But the games survive forever while the manuals...don't. Someone should do something about that.

That's the thing, if you only play a game a handful of times in the 30 something years since it first came out, you're bound to forget a few obvious bits

I learned that you can go faster in Marble Madness by holding A. Thanks MegaMatt!!!

That was a literal game changer when I was trying to beat it for the NES game challenge of 201X.

Is that pronounced "Twenty-Ten-tee-Ex", or "Twenty-Ex-Teen"?

You don't see me going to ice cream socials and not eating ice cream and socializing.

I could never get E.T. out of the pit on that particular Atari game because I didn't think to hold the button. I was, like, 6, but in retrospect I was dumb not to try it. It only has 1 button.

Marble Madness is actually pretty easy and doesn't take much practice to GIT GUD.

I read it as twenty-ex-teen.  It was that or twenty-one-ex, but that doesn't sound quite right.

you will die of sodium poisoning before you ever take me with enough grains of salt.


Perhaps the same can be said of all birth control. But enough posting- have at you!
