Sounds like fun!

Will the 3 MGL rule (or whatever it is) be in effect for this competition?

Great video, OOO

I am guessing you mean are the games from the last 3 x MGLs out of the draw for the competition ... YES they are (however most are not on the list anyway!)
And the world famous list will remain anonymous during the competition and will be revealed after this MGL is closed ...

Once again thanks for the invite and for the excellent youtube intro (",)

I'm out again this time as I am still building my new cab and mustn't be distracted :D

Had a blast though when I have played so hopefully I'll be ready by the next one...

I'll get on as much as I can, but being sport season and taking my tribe to all corners of Brisbane for training and matches, i will be very hit and miss (much like my gaming ability actually).

Thanks for the great vid OOO, best one yet :D

I too LOL'd at my appearance also. Am I supposed to be holding you too ransom OOO for a higher ranking? Also not too sure about the "stick your coin in first" reference :redface.

Brilliant vid OOO, laughed my head off when I saw me with the chains and bow tie. I have a business trip at the end of the week so it looks like I'll start on the laptop.
BTW, my mame cab is setup with 6 buttons (Street Fighter II), why is there a 3 button limit?

One joystick with three buttons is a fairly standard mame set up and allows most people to be able to play most games so that is why the restriction is there. That is fine for the majority of games also, 6 button fighter games are not good in this kind of comp and many including myself don't like playing them. The one joystick 3 button rule also stops people from nominating spinner games, Track Ball, and driving games that many people couldn't play, unfortunately it also excludes two joystick games such as Robotron and Crazy Climber which I enjoy, but once again others couldn't play.

Great video... I literally lol'd.

I'll see how I go, I am busy getting my driving cabinets how I want them and still have changes to make to my virtual pinball as well as football (soccer) season being upon us and I play as well as coach.... but I'll try to have a crack anyway.

You give me far more credit for intelligence than I deserve. I really liked your clown outfit when you were riding in the park, so I figured I'd like you on the bike after me in the sketch.
So it just happened you ended up with the nomination spiel ...

It's a bit like this scene from the movie Naked Gun 2 1/2:

Commissioner Anabell Brumford: Ladies and gentlemen, I would now like to introduce a most special American. Tonight, he is being honoured for his 1000th drug-dealer killed.
Lt. Frank Drebin: [to applause] Thank you. But, in all honesty, the last three I backed over with my car. Luckily, they turned out to be drug-dealers.

I was a little bit like Frank on your spiel ... :lol


I too LOL'd at my appearance also. Am I supposed to be holding you too ransom OOO for a higher ranking? Also not too sure about the "stick your coin in first" reference :redface.

Three things came to mind when I wrote your skit:

1. Your skit was based on you and Frankenstein. And yes, even he is a MGL gamer. Now Frankenstein is a little schizoid, I MUST KILL, so your gun is insurance for your safety.
2. Now Franky wants to kill right. How better to satisfy a killer than he can put his coin into an arcade machine, and then he can kill the Space Invaders, bad guys or whatever the video games allow you to do.
3. Plus I thought you two made for a great pair of friends.

Well your liking of Bubble Bobble (and a terrific game it is!) is legendary (also just as for Nicko71). So it was a lay down misere for the skit.
Donkey Kong? Who knows as I don't even know yet. More details on Thursday night ... ;)

Well you are really in trouble in the skit. That's what really happens when you play video games ... challenging, exciting, fun, frustrating and if you really were in the game ... dangerous.
Laptop it is then ... :024:


Perfect for me, i like playing games i've never seen before such as flicky so wasn't going to nominate anything :)

Can't wait !

Your first line was the idea ... never ever done before, no nominations! The beauty of the MGL is to have nominations and this will remain the norm, however for the first time in 24, why not none? ... :stirthepot:

Whatever you can manage is fine. We are all busy and I hope your season and the coaching goes great. Just remember to drop in a coin when you have a spare moment and play the games of your life ... http://i1120.photobucket.com/albums/l500/sno-bee/Pacman_Machine_zpsb3b61f58.gif (http://s1120.photobucket.com/user/sno-bee/media/Pacman_Machine_zpsb3b61f58.gif.html)
