With the resurgence of interest in single level games these days, people should definitely take time to appreciate Breakshot.

Re: FS: Capcom Breakshot $4000 OBO

Yes great game, I've owned one about 10 years ago, maybe it's this specific game in question? Cait001 could maybe answer this question, I had sold it to her but I don't know who bought it from her and so on...... I can't beleive how much the market is saturated with plenty of new games in the past ...

LF: techs that want to tinker with weird small EM projects

I am looking for some EM assistance. Is anyone in the Ottawa area interested in smaller electromechanical projects? I have a few oddball / smaller machines from the 1970s that fuse electromechanical and early solidstate tech together and I need help getting them working better. I'd love to find some...

Re: JJP Elton John

I think Elton John will be a great classic rock theme but I don't know many people who can afford JJP pins anyways so it's kind of a moot point. :)
I thought Godfather was AMAZING and I wish JJP all the best though I worry without a major hit soon they might be withering financially.
