"look at what your wonderful website has been reduced to. pong. the dipshits abide. how sad."

You just ain't getting it. It's nostalgia- I remember Pong from when I was a wee lad. It was so fuckin Buck Rogers.

Now, a NEW version of Pong, and it's *hard.*

The concept, so simple, yet it's still fun today, in this world of digital overload.

That's cool.

frank black's ode to pong:

Whatever Happened to Pong?

My brother and me used to play it
Down at the bar
Taking money from guys
More used to the playing of cards

Now virtually everyone's singing
A popular song
But I still believe in
In the excellent joy of the Pong

Now if they take it H.G. Wells
Well, I'll be on the first flight
To a time before the Kong
Whatever happended to Pong?

Paddle the paddle to the side to the side
To the side to the side to the paddle the paddle
Paddle the paddle the side to the side
Pong
Ball in the machine

Head Prosthesis:
I think what marc is missing here is the joy of playing pong on absinthe. Its taken me awhile but I am starting to enjoy the neausea. Uhm, I've always been slow and have finally given up the banjo.

Go ahead Marc.

Kick my ass!
Bitch slap me!
You long haired,
Rasputinified,
Pong hatin',
cunt stuffin',
dick draggin',
black assed, Rock Star...

Goddamn you're hot!

I'll beat your dick into
the data on Pong though!!!

Ignoring any negativity from marc, you can redirect the ball by making sure the paddle is in motion when you hit the ball.

Marc, pong is a classic, if you have a problem with it, moan at Head, he posted the link first, I thought it was impressive, so what if you dont?

Now that I've found out it shows up on the screen, I've been doing much better.

By Robman on Tuesday, March 26, 2002 - 12:58 am: Edit

Crowly,
Shockwave.com has a download called 'shockwave player' that saves Macromedia games on your hardrive. I have not tried this pong, but I have had good luck with the program in the past.

By Crowlyman on Monday, March 25, 2002 - 10:19 pm: Edit

Since pong...my only desire is to keep up with speedy objects...

233...not doin a great job of it...

By Crowlyman on Monday, March 25, 2002 - 09:19 pm: Edit

Can anyone tell me how to save the game to disc or something, so that I don't always have to go online to play it? I'm getting addicted to this thing.

By Louched_Liver on Monday, March 25, 2002 - 03:09 pm: Edit

It shows up on the screen?

By _Blackjack on Monday, March 25, 2002 - 02:58 pm: Edit

I find I do a lot better when I don't look directly at the screen. BE the paddle...

By Louched_Liver on Monday, March 25, 2002 - 01:36 pm: Edit

Best for me, so far-16. Guess I need practice.

By Themagicman on Monday, March 25, 2002 - 01:23 pm: Edit

By Crowlyman on Monday, March 25, 2002 - 08:30 am: Edit

After a half-a-damn-hour, my highest is 228. GD it! I gotta go to work now...

The opening screen is pretty cool: Something to do while you wait. I'm still waiting on my order from SC. lol I don't know if I can play pong for that long!

By Timk on Monday, March 25, 2002 - 06:00 am: Edit

By Raschied on Sunday, March 24, 2002 - 09:28 pm: Edit

High Score so far is pretty pathetic - 209 points. Comp kicks my ass.
