YES!!!!!!!!
Three words. Full of win.
I personally like the Frogger one :^)
Donate your quarters!
damn straight
Thats awsome.
I don't know why, but the Dig Dug poster reminds me of Speed Racer.
That's really odd, because he's wearing Luke Skywalker's helmet.
I must have the Dig Dug poster!!!
Really great looking prints! Might have to snag one.
Nice!
@dowekeller I'd rather have the Joust poster.
freakin' awesome.
I like the Frogger one.
now if you can just find one for Galaxia...
There's a LOT of classic games which would have made great posters. It's too bad he had to stop at 4. I'd like to have seen what he'd have done with Pac Man, Defender, Missile Command or Asteroids.
I even thought of one for Pong.

"The ball is in your court!"
correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Pac Man the first game ever to have a "sequel"?
Probably not, but it may have been the first game to have been surpassed by its sequel.
ah yes Ms. Pacman.
@wastelander75 Yeah. Until Chun Lee, she was the hottest VG character EVAR.

.............

Um....did I just say that out loud....or type it and hit "add comment?" Rats.
now wait a minute, are you telling me that Samus Aran wasn't sexaaaay?
No compared to Ms. Pacman. Incidentally, I currently live in a city where most people have the Pacman physique. It's a bit disturbing.
that's a fad that's disturbingly trendy around here as well.
OMG it's Joust
Those games are so old, I can barely even remember them, much less remember playing them.
Google it then...
Now, now, rawkr. We accept young people around here. Not everyone is old enough to remember these games. You can learn to win at any age.

On the other hand, anyone who isn't old enough to remember Megaman is also not old enough to use the internet without parental supervision. We do have SOME standards.
@LordXenophon

Megaman STEALS YOUR SOUL.
Snide response removed. That Megaman avatar is total WIN.
Agreed.
The Flying V - the only guitar so cool, even Brian May had to set aside his Red Special and use one for a video.
For a guitar that epic it is only proper.
I hate to disapploint you, but Brian May didn't really play a Flying V for the Princes of the Universe video. There was a problem of some sort with the Red Special, so someone loaned him the Flying V for the video, but that was just pluck-syncing. When the song was actually recorded, he used the Red Special.

That's all cool, though. The Red Special is even cooler than a Flying V. How many people have a home-made guitar which set new standards for all guitars to come?
@LordXenophon There you go with that wisdom again... I figured he would have stuck with his favorite for the recording.
All true, but even so, he still used a Flying V for the video.

As I heard it, the "problem" with the Red Special was that it hadn't arrived on time. He still chose the Flying V over other guitars present.
Granted, for the purpose of emoting in front of a camera for the video, he did use a Flying V.
I always had a soft spot for Randy Rhoads and his polka dotted
Flying V, Talk about epic!

Last time I went by Milano's Musicland, they had them in canary yellow, hot pink, black and flames, and leopard spots. I wanted the leopard spot one, but it was way too expensive.
They didn't have any normal Flying V's? o.O
My dad used to have this Neon Purple Jackson V-style. Not the same thing but it looked epic and its edges were sharp enough to kill a man. It sounded great too. I cried when he sold that guitar...
@iDigit Nobody would buy a guitar-colored Flying V. If you're going to buy a fancy guitar, you buy a FANCY guitar. If you want a "normal" guitar, you just get a stratocaster.
Seriously, the Dig-Dug poster makes me want to start humming the Speed Racer theme......

Here he comes!
Here comes Speed Racer
He's a demon on wheels!

Go Speed Racer
Go Speed Racer

Go Speed Racer Gooooooooooo!!!
@LordXenophon Nothing wrong with a Stratocaster.
Just that SGs r way better =P
@wastelander75 lol, that was my first thought when I saw it too.
@rawkr Most popular model in history.
@LordXenophon I still like the sound a Gibson SG or a Les Paul better...
@TamaraLane Sorry the Les Paul was always outside of my price range.
These are pretty cool, nice find
You know, in this day and age, I've yet to see a game where you can ride around on an armored ostrich lancing outlaw knights while you flutter from one platform to the next.

I think today's gaming companies are ostrich bias.

Except for THQ. Red Faction Guerrilla <3
@wastelander75 Don't say that too loud... I can see it now JOUST 2010
that wouldn't be bad. Or hell, just having an Ostrich mount would suit me just fine.
There's no bias. Ostriches simply evolved into chocobos.
It'd be nice to have more than one game where you can yell "BIRD FUCKED!" for the shear oddity of it.
@rawkr OMG! and i was restraining myself from making a comment about mounting ostriches.....
It can be any bird? I thought it was just telling people to mount ducks, specifically.
You don't mount ducks, silly! You eat them!
@iDigit What do you mean, "normal Flying V?" There is no such thing as "Normal" for a guitar that cool. It has to be unique!
@TamaraLane Well there is that and the fact that Red Faction Guerrella's ostrich hammer came with the April Fool's tag line of "Bird Fucked" as a term for pwnage but yeah, the mounting of ostriches as a sexual innuendo is also funny. LoL
I've heard of some people wanting to have sex with ducks myself.

In fact there are several people I know that just shout out "Oh Fuck a Duck!"

But they usually say that when they're mad.
That's probably what bananafanafo was trying to refer to.
@rawkr Nice Achievement XD
Oh, broil a duck!
Yum!
It doesn't work so well when you say "broil," does it? Broil just isn't a four letter word.
Bake a duck.
