LMAOOOO the NXT nicknames. “professor of pain” :joy::joy::joy:

On the nicknames and bad shirts have you guys seen this Otis shirt?

That is what I imagine DDT foods would be…

One correction - Pat Buck did note on his podcast he was released back in April and not furloughed prior to his return.

Hooked up the super Nintendo a few weeks ago. NHL 95 is great! Been playing pilot wings & hockey.

Sounded like you guys thought that the actual Papa John is still involved with Papa John’s Pizza? He was removed from the company a while ago due to his racism. Recent ads have been touting Shaquille O’Neal as a member of their board, using pizzas for philanthropic reasons.

Hey @johnpollock FYI the Genesis will pretty much never stop working unless you somehow soak the board. There’s basically no moving parts on these old cart-based systems. The only common issues involve bad capacitors used on some handheld models like the Sega Game Gear which can cause audio issues. The capacitors can be replaced pretty easily if you so desire. The Genesis itself will probably keep rocking for another 20 years.

If you’ve got any issues getting any of the games to fire up, clean the electrical connections of the game with a Q-tip and glass cleaner. You may want to do this with all your games regardless if they’ve been sitting around for 20 years since they’ve likely accumulated quite a bit of dust and grunge. You can clean the cart slot of the Genesis itself in a similar manner by inserting a credit card (or similarly sized card) with a rag and Glass cleaner wrapped around it into the cart slot.

This same cleaning procedure also applies to SNES, NES, Master System, N64, or any other cart-based retro games. Enjoy.
