Metal Jesus & Kelsey share their TIPS & TRICKS for haggling at retro game stores, expos, garage sales & craigslist. Their years of game collecting AND store ownership offer a unique perspective on getting the best deal AND being respectful to the other party.
Garage sales are typically the easiest
Be nice & respectful
Know what is popular & what isn’t
Retail store prices have business expenses added
Slow selling games are sometimes easier to haggle with
Buy in bulk if possible
Politely point out cosmetic flaws
Engage seller in conversation
Flaws may already be factored into the price
Trading games sometimes is more valuable than cash!

I just want to say one thing: The path down which Metal Jesus Rocks wants to lead us is empty and bleak. For practical reasons, I have to confine my discussion to areas that have received insufficient public attention or in which I have something new to say. What I’m saying is this: Metal Jesus Rocks likes to argue that he can change his self-centered ways. Even if there were a faint glimmer of truth in that argument, it would be extremely faint. The truth is that whenever I highlight the threat of snippy Maoism in a letter such as this, Metal Jesus Rocks issues a standard response. First, he denies the threat itself. Then, he condemns those who describe him as a disrespectful fraudster. This is basically Metal Jesus Rocks’s way of encouraging humorless wallies to see themselves as victims and, therefore, live by alibis rather than by honest effort. Let me end by appealing to our collective sense of humanity: Metal Jesus Rocks and his associates are wolves in sheep’s clothing who will strip the world of conversation, friendship, and love in the coming days.

The Atari ST was introduced right before the Commodore Amiga in 1985. Popular with gamers, musicians and desktop publishers, the ST earned its right as one of the best 16-bit computers of its day. But is it still worth owning to a current collector of vintage computers? (From LazyGameReviews)
This is an overview of the history, hardware and software of the ST from the perspective of an American collector. How do the pros and cons stack up, and is it worth getting an ST over similar systems like the Amiga?
Drunken Master Paul & Metal Jesus take Gamer Eats outside on the grill cooking tasty roasted stuffed peppers and smoked nachos!
Roasted Stuffed Peppers RECIPE:
You need half a dozen small to medium peppers, hot or mild
Dice half an white or red onion
Add a enough vegetable oil in skillet to lightly coat onions
Cook onion in skillet until starting to sweat and turn light brown
add half pound of chorizo 8oz. (add more if you want it meatier)
Cook chorizo and onions and oil until meet is completely cooked
Let cool until warm to touch
add half a cube of Philadelphia style cream cheese 4oz to stuffing. Mix well
Stuff hollowed half pepper boats full but not overflowing
Put peppers on hot grill for about 1 to 2 minutes, rotate once
Once stuffing has visibly melted and you have a good char on the bottom of the pepper, either add them to your oven broiler for another minute or use blowtorch… or you could just eat them as is.
