A few months ago, I posted that I was attempting to fix up my worn Pac-Man Upright Cabinet. Well, here's an update to what I've done since:
After I fixed the short in the power cord on the Pac-Man Upright Cabinet, I went to work on the control panel. It was in bad shape. The first player button was broken to where it couldn't hold a switch, but the second player button worked well enough so I replaced it with the first player button. Every direction worked on the joystick except for up. The switch for the up direction was broken beyond repair. I ended up replacing that switch with the good one from the player select buttons. I purchased a soldering iron and removed the wiring from the joystick switches. The joystick wiggled a bit, so I added some washers to fill the gap between the joystick mount and the control panel. I then proceeded to solder the wires back onto the switches and attach the control panel back onto the cabinet. Finally, I ordered new player select buttons to replace the old ones.

My first experience with the Star Fox series was on the N64 with Star Fox 64. After completely annihilating the game and beating it completely, I decided to visit Star Fox on the SNES. And as of today, I still have not completed the game. I'm under the impression that the older the game, the harder it is to beat. Or maybe I just have less patience for older games. Anyways, below is the SNES Star Fox ending video that I've never personally experienced. Enjoy!

Super Mario RPG was one of my favorite games as a kid. I love role-playing games and I've always enjoyed playing Mario games, so Super Mario RPG was the bee's knees for me. I always found the game challenging (such as timing with Bowser to break down a door and doing puzzles in the right order) and the storyline was enjoyable. I want to revisit this game due to the impossible Final Fantasy-style boss fight with Culex. I was never able to beat him and that fact haunts me to today. Growing up, I always attempted the fight but ended up skipping it due to frustration.

So I've been thinking about changing the direction of this blog. I have not decided on a specific theme or subject yet, but the change should occur soon. But in the meantime, enjoy Hitler's end in Wolfenstein 3D, one of my favorite computer games as a kid (and my brother's all-time favorite classic game). I hope this brings back tons of awesome memories.
