    Garsh that one was 10 min long, I couldn't watch the whole thing! But that superman "one full megabite" cracked me up. LOL

    It's amazing, when I looked at your dates I thought 'that wasn't that long ago' but once you look at the ad.. it really WAS a long time ago, wasn't it?

    LOL I could never figure out Tempest.

    I like looking at my old 80s comic books. You see a lot of ads for old Activision games and such.
