This one's pretty catchy...

Pumped up Kicks- Foster the People

Robert's got a quick hand.
He'll look around the room, he won't tell you his plan.
He's got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth he's a cowboy kid.
Yeah, he found a six shooter gun.
In his dad's closet hidden in a box of fun things, and I don't even know what.
But he's coming for you, yeah he's coming for you.

[Chorus: x2]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Daddy works a long day.
He be coming home late, yeah he's coming home late.
And he's bringing me his dark surprise.
'Cause dinner's in the kitchen and it's packed in ice.
I've waited for a long time.
Yeah the sleight of my hand is now a quick-pull trigger,
I reason with my cigarette,
And say your hair's on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.

[Chorus: x2]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

[Whistling]

[Chorus: x3]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Congrats again Clarky! There's just something about being in a printed magazine that's superior to being featured on a website. Sorta like how it's better to own a tangible hard copy of a game versus just having it loaded on a hard-drive. At least that's how I feel.

The collectors are the only ones that suffer, after the hard work they put into keeping things in nice condition.
There's a great lesson to be learned here and that is to only collect what you really enjoy playing.

I've had a good time with both Killer Instinct games so I have no regrets about owning the cartridges. In fact, I'm hoping that all the time I'm putting in to KI Gold will be rewarded if and when the game finds its way to XBLA.

In the meantime, if anyone would like to download the KIG soundtrack for free you can do so from the link below. Overall the tunes aren't as good as the original KI's music but the price is right so who cares. :P

Congrats! Just remember what Puff Daddy said, "mo money mo problems". ;)

No Mortal Kombat 4 Grizz!? that's a sin. :o
Nah, after MK3 I was pretty much done with the series. I was playing tons of Armored Core at the time and when I wanted to satiate my fighting game appetite I usually turned to Soul Blade on the PSX.

Ironically, Super Street Fighter IV rekindled the fire in my heart for fighting games thanks to its brilliant on-line play.

Collection Help
I'd start with CIB copies of your favorite games. You should always start collecting something that holds sentimental value as you never know when the bottom is going to drop out on the market.

I hate to say it, but re-releases usually lower the value of the original games, in my experience.

I reckon it truly has become a digital distribution world.

Could Killer Instinct 2 HD Remix be coming to Xbox Live Arcade? :huh:

Fans have been begging for the Killer Instinct games to be ported to XBLA with improved graphics and on-line support since Perfect Dark got that treatment. Let's hope it's finally going to happen or better still maybe even a whole new installment in the franchise.

Question for collectors: Will rereleases of the KI games up the prices of the original cartridges?

My N64 fighting games.

Yeah that's the really rare Sculptor's Cut version of Clay Fighter next to the guilty pleasure that is Mace: The Dark Age.

Killer Instinct Gold is at the top because I consider it the best of the bunch.

Oh, and yeah, I own a copy of Transformers Beast Wars TransMetals although I've hardly played it.

You can also try to melt a big pen with a lighter, then quickly put the pen on the screw.
Some people use this technique for opening the console.

I completed the first circuit of SWE1R today with El Quadinaros today. It was fun experiencing tracks I've raced numerous times before in a new way. El Q was very precise once i got the hang of steering.

I did complete one addition race with EL Q functioning as only a player one controller. That was fun too--its massive width was definitively accentuated!

Clarky did an outstanding job with El Q, thanks again man!

Bluedog, you know you gotta do a full review of that incredible controller!

Put a name to the name
My real name is Pedro although I've gone by Peter most of my life. Most people just call me Pete.

I go back to the three letter high score arcade days too but back then I was known as REX. I used that because it stands for king in Latin like in Tyrannosaurus Rex meaning King of the Tyrant Lizards.

s-vdeo on n64
Yes I notice a difference between S-Video and composite. Enough of difference to make it worthwhile to hunt down an S-Video cable if you don't already own one.

Wii U And 3DS Screenshots From E3 2012
I'll be waiting for either an F-Zero, Mario Kart or Smash Bros. game before I pick up the console.

I'm happy to hear that all Wii accessories and peripherals will be compatible with the Wii U!

However, doesn't $299 seem a little steep in this economy?

RUMBLE PAK MOD

I brought a rumble pack from Ebay, when it turned up it had batteries had leaked inside. Swapping the batteries out didnt fix it so maybe this mod will.

Can someone confirm that i will need a GAMEBIT 3.8mm?
thanks
This was also my motivation for modifying a Rumble Pak. The acid from the batteries had damaged the unit so I felt I had nothing to lose by performing the mod. Lo and behold the Rumble Pak worked brilliantly afterwards.

The gamebit necessary to open the Rumble Pak is indeed the same one used to open N64 cartridges 3.8mm.

Watcha Listenin' To?
This song popped in to my head and had to share with you all.

Invisible Sun

I don't want to spend the rest of my life
Looking at the barrel of an Armalite
I don't want to spend the rest of my days
Keeping out of trouble like the soldiers say
I don't want to spend my time in hell
Looking at the walls of a prison cell
I don't ever want to play the part
Of a statistic on a goverment chart

There has to be an invisible sun
It gives it's heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
That gives us hope when the whole day's done

It's dark all day, and it glows all night
Factory smoke and acetylene light
I face the day with my head caved in
Looking like something that the cat brought in

There has to be an invisible sun
It gives it's heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
That gives us hope when the whole day's done

And they're only going to change this place by
Killing everybody in the human race
And they would kill me for a cigarette
But I don't even wanna die just yet

There has to be an invisible sun
It gives it's heat to everyone
There has to be an invisible sun
It gives us hope when the whole day's done
