Check This Out. It's a DJ Battle Between DJ Jazzy Jeff and Jeremy Ellis using Mario Brothers. My Mother says DJ Jazzy Jeff is Awesome. I can See That.
I haven't done a post in a while, but I am here to tell you about this nice place called High Scores Arcade. This place is an ARCADE MUSEUM!!! (you have to say this in a loud booming voice). It's located on Coruscant- I mean in Alameda, right by a mini golf course and a vintage game store, if you're interested. The place is $5 for 1 hour, and $10 for the entire day. What a steal! At the arcade, there are a lot of those machines with a bunch of games. I think that this is a good way to provide variety with your games, instead of just Atari Star Wars, Frogger, and Joust. Those games are awesome though
Mother and I played completely different games. We played absolutely nothing with each other, except MORTAL KOMBAT!!! (starts singing theme song) Ahem. We also played Double Dragon together (We sucked, Just being honest, Mom!). I decided to torture myself by playing the arcade version of Battletoads. It was hard, but I kind of expected that. I lost to Sagat in the original 1987 Street Fighter (yes, I got to the end. Geki was the hardest, and a Hadouken is impossible to pull off without being killed by the hyper intelligent A.I. We then played Final Fight. We did significantly better. I played as Guy (Wow, what a creative name). Mom introduced me to Tempest. I didn't get it. I really didn't get the concept, and I've played dozens of Atari games (I've noticed that a lot of them have to do with space).
Overall, this is definitely worth your time if you have an off day, or if you just feel nostalgic at that very hour.

On Saturday, I went to Stand Up Comics. They sell comics, as the name implies, but even more. They also sell T-shirts, superhero stuff, vintage video games, consoles. I think on the way inside, I saw a Sega Dreamcast. I bought three games: Classic NES Series: Bomberman, Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut, and Tetris. I haven't played Sonic yet, but Bomberman is an excellent version of the original 1983 video game. Tetris was really for my Mom, she just pretended it was for me...
The staff was very friendly, and actually knew what they were doing (That's a first). They had a great variety of games, including NES, SNES, Gamecube, Genesis, N64, PSone, PS2, and even the Sega Master System.
So if you like classic games, come here. Long story short, I HIGHLY recommend this shop. I hope you enjoyed this post. Gyromite76 out.
