Out of all the future possible 'Minis' they can make, I probably think a Sega Dreamcast mini would be the most appealing to me. Never got to play that system

I'm looking forward to the inevitable N64 mini.
N64 mini without the Rare games would be pointless imo.

I'm interested in Default's take on the Billy Mitchell situation. I remember whatching the 'King of Kong' doco back in the day. He was easy to dislike, but a convenient villain doesn't always meet the meet the intended mark. Is he a dirty cheating mofo or are we dogpiling on an unlikable expert?

Billy's definitely an expert and a liar. He's the Lance Armstrong of video games. He's obviously amazing at games and legit got the first Pac-Man kill screen. You can watch him live at a convention tear up Pac-Man or Donkey Kong. He's also been forensically proven to lie about never using MAME and lie about using real arcade hardware in separate videos that we just happen have, let alone the fact that many of his scores have no video evidence. The only reason to lie about it would be to cheat.

Twin Galaxies in general is a scam. Nothing on their site means anything without a video to back it up.

Yeah, I remember watching something about him using MAME and feeling unqualified to discern the differences between his, MAME's and the arcade's version. As a layman it's easy to see pointed-to similarities between him and an emulation, but not know what to make of the differences.

COD rumored to drop single player campaign for a battle royale mode. I haven't played since BLOPS so I don't care. It's pretty funny though.

I'm surprised they didn't do it sooner tbh. I always figured people only play single player COD to get better at the MP anyway. :tard:
