Max Payne (and the sequels) are on Steam. ACA Neo Geo Puzzle Bobble is on the Windows app store, and the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection is still technically being offered as a digital download from Amazon...though apparently there have been ratings issued for a new version of it so it might be better to wait for that.

HOLD THE PHONE! An arcade perfect version of the original game is available for the Switch. It’s ACA Neo Geo Puzzle Bobble. I should have known it’d be there.


The SNES port? I am looking for the arcade version. What sequels? I played this game over 20 years ago in the arcades and I can't tell which one I played. How many sequels are there?

Steam was the first place I looked, I could have swore it didn't exist. Anyway I checked again there is a page for something called Max Payne RU with no images or videos and (73) positive reviews. It says English language not supported?! I thought this was an all time classic.

Why no one refers to the internet as the "inet" any more?

I'm fairly young but I've never heard of this either.

The only abbreviation I've ever heard for internet is calling it "the web" (not knowing the difference between the internet and the World Wide Web).

I always felt Nickelodeon had the potential to be the Anti-Disney but some how they lost their potential. Their shows from the 90s had such unique character to them, I can't define it, but I know its there.

One a side note, I watched a little bit of the Disney channel and it seems that younger audience shows formulae has not changed one bit since the mid 90s(or 80s), they are almost all replicas of each other except now they are missing the star actors like Miley Cyrus or Raven.
