When I met Donald Trump at Trump Tower in New York City in November of 2015, he was then just candidate Trump. He was still battling in the field of many Republicans. After waiting about three and a half hours on line , I finally got into Trump Tower and met with Donald Trump. Trump greeted me as he greeted everybody, and I told him Hello Mr. President which got a great smile from Trump. I told him I loved his appearances on The Howard Stern Show and he asked me if Howard was talking about him and was Howard talking nice about him. I told him of course Howard is talking about you there is nobody out there to talk about bigger than you, which Trump loved and said Yes, Yes.. Then I got my picture taken with Trump and I was on my way, but Trump was just setting out on a journey.
Many pundits believed that Donald Trump never had a chance in the election, they wanted him to fail. As I heard his words and saw his rallies getting bigger and bigger, I was sure that Trump was going to win it all. He heard the words of the voiceless for so many years forgotten by the politicians. Politicians only come out every four years and say vote for me, and then disappear for the next four years. Trump was different, he had no ideology to follow, he was his own person and nobody could buy him out like other politicians who have gotten rich by being politicians.
I am still kind of in shock that today we are witnessing Donald Trump being sworn in as President Of The United States. This was America’s strike against the elite and the career politicians with their empty promises every four years.
January 20th 2017 this is our NEW independence day, and I have a feeling that this is going to be a great four or even eight years of the one and only President Donald J. Trump.
Ummmmm….This would be good if this was a parody, but this is totally 100% real …..They don’t get it all this is the reason that Trump got in office in the first place…..
“This is going to be interesting,” says actor Andrew Garfield. “It may get too real.” With the inauguration fast approaching, an all-star cast of Hollywood celebrities come together to improvise the 1979 hit “I Will Survive.” Among those channeling their inner Gloria Gaynor are Emma Stone, Natalie Portman, Amy Adams, Matthew McConaughey, Chris Pine, Hailee Steinfeld, Felicity Jones, and Taraji P. Henson, the stars of the season’s finest films, and of W’s annual Best Performances portfolio.
We at Superfanworld.com and Stern Facebook Superfans want to wish THE KING OF ALL MEDIA A Happy Birthday!!!! Long Live The King!!!!!
When we started the politics link on Superfanworld.com we weren’t sure if we should add politics to the mix of Howard Stern , Wrestling , video games but this election is different than any other as it’s the most important election of our lifetime.
Whether we choose Hillary or Trump on Tuesday November 8th our future will change with either candidate. With Hillary, she will continue the failed policies of President Obama and will enter the oval office as the most untrusted American President ever. Even if the FBI didn’t find anything to convict Hillary, just the thought of the carelessness with classified documents on a private server, that has been reported been hacked by at least five countries. And now Hillary, handing over more classified information to her maid to fax and copy. There is no respect for the office or Hillary believes she can do whatever she wants to do as Secretary Of State, imagine Hillary in the oval office.
I’ve had enough with the Clintons scandals and avoidance of the law, just look at when President Bill Clinton was in office we had whitewater, travelgate, Monica Lewinsky and so so much more. Do we really need more of The Clintons?
With Donald Trump, its a breathe of fresh air a non politician who wants to work for one thing to Make America Great Again. Fix the economy, Repeal the failed Obamacare, Protect our country from the terrorists and so much more. Donald Trump is the one to vote for on November 8th.
Yes Donald Trump is brash and sometimes obnoxious but that is who he is, he’s from Queens New York and that is how you get things done in the big apple. Trump will bring a fresh spin to Washington and will drain the swamp of the corrupt politicians who are working for themselves instead of working for the public.
The choice is clear how can you trust Hillary with the oval office with all the baggage she brings into it. Donald Trump has shaken politics to the core and politics in America is changed forever.
Our time is now to make government FOR and BY the people again with Donald Trump, this is much more than just a ordinary election this is a movement to take back our government from the corrupt who are working to destroy it.
Vote for Donald J. Trump as he is the right choice in this election. Our time is now, lets take advantage of it as we might not have another chance in the future. Let’s Make America Great Again together.
With just seven days till election day, I had to get my words and thoughts out on why I am supporting Donald J. Trump as President Of The United States. In the past few months I have been unfriended, labeled a racist , labeled a sexist and even compared to Adolph Hitler just because I was supporting Donald Trump. Before I go into why Donald Trump would make a amazing President I have to tell you where it all began……
I have a confession to make , I have voted and been a life long Democrat until now. I have supported President Bill Clinton and yes I voted for President Barack Obama not once but twice. I too fell like the rest of the nation to the promise of a real change with Barack Obama, turned out President Obama was just like the other politicians before him but worse. I always liked the ideas of the Democrats and felt like they were the political party of the people while the Republicans were the political party of the rich. I gave Obama a chance, and I think he had an ok first term in office. But too many empty promises and also how this country is a divided nation and with the ongoing corruption scandals, made me see the light with Donald J. Trump.
When I learned that Donald Trump was running for President, I thought it was more of a lark and he wouldn’t last with the other political opponents who had much more experience with the political machine. I have always been a big fan of Donald Trump from his hotels and casinos and his appearances on television and radio. He always told it like it is, and was a typical brash New Yorker who didn’t care who he hurt in the process of getting his message across. The more I listened to Trump and his ideas about bringing America back to its former greatness, the more I liked his message.
I have always believed that the country should be run somewhat like a business and I did support Ross Perot and Steve Forbes when they ran although unsuccessfully for president. With the deals whether it was for foreign policy or trade our nation needed a good negotiator, which it never really got as our elected officials mostly have a career in politics and that is pretty much the reason for the bad trade deals and bad foreign policy deals that have been made in the past.
With Donald Trump, we can have a real leader who will stand up for America and the Americans whether it would be for trade or our enemies abroad. With President Obama, we have a weak leader and that is why we have become a weak country in the eyes of the world. Nobody is scared of us anymore, our enemies laugh in our faces and our trusted allies don’t trust us anymore. We need a leader who will say America First!!!
Its sad to see our country going down this slippery slope that it has in the years of Obama, Bush and Clinton. So many American jobs lost to other countries, so many of our factories closed and economies of whole cities like Detroit pretty much wiped out. We barely make anything anymore in The United States and that has to change, we have some of the brightest and smartest people anywhere in the world and we are struggling in this new world economy, while other countries and its people are getting richer and richer.
Donald Trump will be the leader we need in this whole new world economy , we can’t rely on the same old policies and practices that have failed us miserably in the past. We need to build up our infrastructure, our airports and bring the jobs back to The United States.
Donald Trump is for making all Americans regardless of race, gender , sexual orientation prosperous as we are all one as in we are all Americans.
Donald Trump will also end the disaster which is Obamacare. Even Bill Clinton called Obamacare “The Craziest Thing In The World” with premiums going through the roof and no competition in many markets Obamacare is bound to fail and we have to euthanize it before its too late. With Trump’s plan to replace Obamacare would create competition with insurance companies and bring real change to the medical insurance that everyone needs. Before it was called Obamacare it was called Hillarycare………
Now speaking of Hillary , she does have much more experience than Trump. But in this new world environment we need people with fresh and new ideas and not people who are for keeping the same failed Obama policies. There are just too many questions and uncertainties with Hillary through all the scandals, emails, Benghazi, Clinton Foundation and more Hillary can not be trusted with being President Of The United States. When Bill was President there were scandals like WhiteWater, TravelGate, Monica Lewinsky and so much more. Bill and Hillary are pretty much The Bonnie And Clyde of politics and their time has come and passed. Just say no to Hillary because according to her she has a private and a public persona and both are different. So which Hillary will we get if she gets elected???? We cannot take that chance.
So on November 8th I will be voting for Donald Trump, because we need new ideas in Washington , because we need a real leader in Washington , and we have to drain the swamp of the old and tired career politicians who are relying on the policies of old to work for the new world. Yes Trump is brash and sometimes obnoxious but he tells it like it is and he is what America needs now more than ever. Lets vote for Donald J. Trump and together we can Make America Great Again.
One of the great joys of a new gadget is the ritual unboxing: inside that box containing a smartphone or virtual reality headset is a world of possibilities. And it turns out unboxings can be just as fun when the gadget in question is really old.
As part of a retrospective series on The Legend of Zelda, Nintendo’s Japanese site recently posted a number of photos of the inside of a company storage room. That may not sound all that exciting, but it turns out the room contains a number of virtually untouched Famicom consoles still in their original boxes. (The Famicom is the Japanese version of the NES, which first launched in 1983 — and will soon be available as an adorable plug-and-play mini-console.) It’s joined by a stack of Disk Systems, a Famicom add-on that made it possible to use floppy discs with the console.
Not only is the post a great look at a near-mint-condition 30-year-old console, it ends on the best possible note: it still works! The unseen Nintendo employee manages to hook one of the consoles up to a nearby tube TV to play, what else, some Legend of Zelda.
Whenever a collection of classic games is released, I always find myself picking it up. Despite not usually having nostalgia for these retro packages (as my first console was the Genesis), I enjoy learning more about the medium that I love, and they’re typically a good way to experience games that I missed out on. Unfortunately, a lot of these end up being hit-or-miss; for every one game I end up loving, there are often a handful of titles that are only interesting to look at through a historical lens.
The latest retro video game collection comes in the form of Atari Flashback Classics Volume 1. This $20 collection features 50 games in total, with 9 being arcade games, and 41 Atari 2600-era titles. Since the games are the reason why anyone would pick this up, and there are way too many of them to touch on individually, here’s the full list of arcade titles: Black Widow, Centipede, Liberator, Lunar Lander, Millipede, Pong, Space Duel, Tempest, and Warlords.
Meanwhile, here are the 41 Atari 2600 games: 3-D Tic-Tac-Toe, Air-Sea Battle, Backgammon, Basketball, Black Jack, Bowling, Canyon Bomber, Centipede, Circus Atari, Combat, Combat Two, Desert Falcon, Dodge ‘Em, Fatal Run, Football, Home Run, Human Cannonball, Millipede, Miniature Golf, Pong Sports, Quadrun, Radar Lock, Realsports Boxing, Realsports Football, Realsports Soccer, Realsports Volleyball, Save Mary, Slot Machine, Slot Racers, Sprintmaster, Star Raiders, Steeplechase, Stunt Cycle, Super Baseball, Super Football, Swordquest EarthWorld, Swordquest FireWorld, Swordquest WaterWorld, Tempest, Warlords, and Yars’ Revenge.
As you can see, 50 games is a lot. The biggest name on the list would be arcade hits like Centipede, Pong, Tempest and Warlords, but the Atari 2600 list isn’t too shabby either. Volume 1 features both of the Combat games (although I’d only recommend playing the original, as the iconic tank combat game’s sequel seems like a total step backwards from the simple fun that the original offers), and a lot of sports games. One thing that Atari did a deviously good job at was splitting the must-have titles between Volume 1 and Volume 2, making sure that retro fans would pick up both.
The big issue that past collections have had is properly controlling the games given the change in input devices. A lot of these games used the Atari 2600’s paddle controller, which hasn’t been seen in decades (besides the super rad Nintendo DS accessory Taito put out). Games like Pong and Warlords feel terrible when using an analog stick, as it just doesn’t offer the precision needed for those titles. That’s a problem that Atari Flashback Classics has to tackle, and I feel like they’ve done a pretty solid job even if they didn’t completely solve the issue.
Each paddle game can be played in three ways: A) with the analog stick where it resets to the center after the player lets go of the stick, B) using the D-pad to move the paddle and then holding it there (it doesn’t reset position), and C) using the DualShock 4’s touchpad as a replacement paddle. I found using the touchpad to generally be the best solution (although it varies from game to game), and I actually had a good time playing these titles that are hard to port. It isn’t perfect, but it’s far better than giving players a single option.
Since Atari Flashback Classics is primarily comprised of games from the late ’70s and early ’80s, I was expecting a lot of the games to be dated. That is definitely the case, and quite frankly a lot of the offerings here are titles that I booted up once and never had any desire to play again. That said, while they offer little in the fun department, they do have plenty of historical value and seeing them preserved is great. I’ll never play Black Jack or Slot Machine again, but I’m glad they’re available.
Some of the surprise stand-outs of Volume 1 ended up being Save Mary, a game where I attempted to save a young girl (who I assume is named Mary) from drowning by lowering blocks she could climb, and Fatal Run, a racing game released in 1989 (yes, somehow the 2600 was still getting new games just a few years before I was born). While neither are as good as Tempest or Millipede, they’re games that I would’ve never played if it wasn’t for this collection, and I feel like that’s why these packages are so important.
While there are probably only a dozen games or so that I actually enjoyed playing (such as 3-D Tic-Tac-Toe, a game I’ve put probably 30 rounds into and lost every single time), that’s more than enough for me. This clearly isn’t about playing the latest and greatest games, it’s about taking a look at the history of gaming, and in that aspect, it totally succeeds.
There are also some really nice extras added in on the presentation side. Players can view the manuals for all of the Atari 2600 titles, which is a really cool and thoughtful thing to do. There is one issue, though, as sadly the photo viewer’s instructions can’t be hidden from the screen, so the bottom of the manuals are often obscured when zoomed in. That’s a bummer, but hopefully it’ll get fixed in a patch. Another awesome touch is that the game’s cartridge artwork are shown when selecting each title. It’s the small things that make a collection like this feel like a labor of love, and not a cash grab on nostalgia.
Finally, there are some great modern additions such as online multiplayer for games (you can even play games while you wait for someone to join your online lobby), and online leaderboards for the arcade games. The multiplayer is where I feel like the game really shines because even if Realsports Boxing is terrible in 2016, I still managed to laugh hysterically while playing it with a buddy. It’s also pretty cool to see that I’m apparently the number 6 player of Black Widow in the entire world (despite being terrible at it). While it doesn’t go as far as Microsoft’s Game Room did in allowing players to view the replays of high-score runs, it’s still a great addition.
Obviously, this package won’t be for everyone. But if you’re looking for a solid way to play Tempest and Centipede, or just looking to learn about the Atari 2600, then I easily recommend this solid retro collection.
