Change your desktop wallpaper

For all you old school gamers, here's some desktop wallpapers (most are full compressed complete maps of games for wallpaper). Cool stuff. My fav is the metroids, but I wished they would have assembled the ENTIRE world all[1] (or at least all of brinstar, or whatever) into one mondo wallpaper.

Oh, and sorry if this is a site that is obvious general knowledge and everyone has seen before. :-PFor all you old school gamers, here's some desktop wallpapers (most are full compressed complete maps of games for wallpaper).

Update: [1]: I've done some googling, and found the whole metroid game. Glad I didn't have to do that myself. A little photoshopping and stuff, and I'll have a jpg or two to u/l to the site (giving the original guy his credit, of course).

Oh, I *heart* Earthworm Jim! (1)

Thanks for the link. I TOTALLY forgot about Earthworm Jim on the NES. I LOVE LOVE LOVED that game. It was funny and challenging--brought to us by Shiny Entertainment in their heyday.

I'm definitely going to use the Earthworm Jim wallpaper.

What happened to your poll? I was ready to ask that someone bring me my pot and bring me my bowl. A merry old soul was me.

It was kinda stupid and is now gone.

Sire, the peasants are revolting!
You're telling me! They stink on ice!

Uhh... deleting something because it was kinda stupid would take out over half the /. database.

It was more along the lines of 'trying to piss off a troll' but came across more like 'egomaniac', so I deleted it. If I looked 'egomaniacal', then the troll would have something else to bitch about.

Just another guy who just *wishes* he could be you, FK.

Oh, and to answer the question, no. You're not the king. You are the Grand High Immortal Exalted Poobah of the Shithouse. :-)

Ok, but I'm appointing you mistress of all things flirty, sexual, and... breastfeeding? ;-)

bethanie (675210) | more than 10 years ago | (#8945185)

Oy. That's a pretty huge amount of territory. But I *love* the title of Mistress! Yeah. "Mistress Bethanie." Yeeeeeeeeaaaahhh. Feels like slippin' in to a hot tub of buttah. Mmmmm....

Is it egomaniacal to pretend that the troll wasn't blatently calling you egomaniacal?

Parent is right. Well, this parent. I'm sure TL has a line on some parents that aren't right. :)

Thanks! (1)

Thanks for the link, brought back a lot of good memories :)

And thats a good collection of messable/playable pics, if you know what I mean!

the "complete" map of zebes is missing something. (1)

Penguin Follower (576525) | more than 10 years ago | (#8942865)

Looking at the map, I notice I don't see maridina or the ghost ship, nor the landing area and the area going from the landing area down into zebes.

other than that, it's a complete map ;) I just may have to break out the emulators again and play super metroid - that map shows the locations of all those statues (minus meridina & ghost ship) of which I'm pretty sure I didn't find every single one last time I played it.

This is the shit, baby. [desktopgaming.com]

God, I can't believe how many hours (and quarters!) I wasted on that game back in the day. I always was über-eager to go to the grocery store with my parents because they had a Space Invaders machine up in front (one of the first arcade games in the whole area). I'd stay in the front area while they went shopping -- and I'd plunk in all my pocket money (except for the 25 cents for a 16 oz. Dr. Pepper in the deposit bottle, of course) into that damn thing.

In fact, it was an odd feeling going back last year to that same store (after having been away for 20 years), which has since taken over a neighboring store and expanded; the old checkout area (where the game was standing) is now disused, but still visible from within the aisles on that side of the (expanded) store.

Pretty strange feeling. Even the old 1970s-style tiles and a couple of old registers and stuff were still in place. *sniff*

Cheers,

Ethelred

Woo-hoo! I'm gonna use that picture as my desktop and tape come coloured cellophane to my screen. ;-)
