    Couple of things I noticed:
    Shanghai Dynasty (DC) unreleased English version
    Illbleed (DC) debug
    Jet Grind Radio (DC) debug
    The Vatz (Xbox) unreleased demo - anything about this game is quite rare
    Dinosaur Hunting (Xbox) unreleased English version
    Made Man (Xbox)
    Hail to the Chimp (Xbox)

    I don't download every single proto that appears but I do collect quite a few titles.

    Edit:
    Ok more than a couple

    Yeah. Like overpriced DLC and games being a service? Ugh. But yeah Arcades were awesome back in the day. I miss them. If I get the room and money I want to build a MAME cab.

    I went to arcades a fair bit when I was in primary school. I guess my favourite was down at the beach my family went to for holidays every summer (just after New Year).
    We would stay at the caravan park down there, my aunt had a caravan that members of the family would use for a week or two each.
    The caravan park had a milk bar and out the back of that was a room with about a dozen or more cabinets. Some cabinets would change each year but some stayed for several years.
    Wasn't anywhere near the best arcade I went to, but I have a lot of good memories of that place Space Invaders, Asteroids, Galaxian, Moon Patrol, Time Pilot and heaps of other games.
    I would save pocket money for those holidays, mostly to play the machines but also to buy war comics from the local newsagency.

    I played a lot of arcade games as a kid. Lots of good arcade games. At least MAME let's us relive the classics. I had to look up Milk Bar real quick, I've heard of them, but wasn't exactly sure what they were.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milk_bar

    In the U.S. the closest thing we have is I guess general stores and fast food resturants.

    I'm not aware of them having servers in other countries.

    As I said I looked it up on twitter and there was a power outage for 8k plus customers in one area in the US, due to mist and fog.
    Where did I say they weren't ? I was guessing at what the affected servers were handling. I'm probably wrong but it doesn't matter. The issue got fixed quickly and all is well again .

    You need the prototype fullset. It needs to fit on a DVD.

    I see, interesting.

    I saw that when I looked through some of the lists. Is it a big demo?

    Serious question
    I just got a 32MB SD card. What can I keep on it?

    Edit: Hmm, the Atari 2600 romset is 4MB

    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here

    I use a 1GB card for my UnoCart-2600
    I do have some really tiny old cards that still work (I think the smallest are 8MB) but I'm saving them for anything that might actually require them.

    I haven't tested any of the games I got so far.
    It isn't a large file though.
    But then Morrowind retail isn't a large file either but has loads of content

    Milk Bars are very rare here now, most have been converted into dwellings. They pretty much died out due to large supermarkets being everywhere plus newer petrol stations having "general store" type products.
    A general store is more than just a milk bar, at least here anyway.

    Back when I was a teenager I lived in the same small rural town where I live now.

    Back then we had:
    Spoiler warning:

    A Fish and Chip shop (which was also a milk bar as far as products), this is now a Cafe and serves as the local community post office.
    A General Store (now closed), which was also the local newsagency and post office (no postal deliveries to residences here you just pickup at PO like you would if you have a PO Box but it's free )
    A Hotel, which has always been just a pub (with meals) as long as I can remember so no rooms to rent.
    A Butchers shop (now a small art gallery but was a residence for like 20 years previously).
    A Bakery that was operated as such for maybe 100 years, has been a residence now for 15 years or so.
    A Garage... auto mechanical repairs, fuel including bottled gas and also roadworthy certificates. Has been closed for years now.

    So atm there's only really the Cafe and Pub.
    If you need petrol/groceries etc you have to drive to the city which is like 15 or so minutes away. Although groceries can be delivered by the major supermarkets for a very small fee.

    Had a 8MB one before, and I was like "that's the same size as a PS2 MC, I'll store a FMCB installer here". Tried it out, the read/write speeds were too slow for it to work on the PS2 Then I just threw it out.
    Actually I think I'll try that, I think I'm already wasting a 1GB card with FMCB on it

    Yeah corner stores are still a thing here. Mostly in smaller towns. I think in most developed countries, big grocery store chains now offer most things.
