Planet Pokemon

About 2 weeks ago, I bought a used Nintendo 64 from eBay and installed it upstairs in Punky's room. Now the Brewster Boys can't get enough of playing Pokemon Stadium and Pokemon Stadium 2. Even though its a 10-year-old console, the games have held up very well over time and very much resemble the current Pokemon Battle Revolution game on the Nintendo Wii.

Every night, we play about 30-45 minutes of the Nintendo together (just me and the boys) and have a good time battling against the computer. Russell's favorite Pokemon are Pikachu, Charmander, Clefairy and Gloom . Punky's choices are much less diverse: Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur. I like Pidgeotto, Drowsy and Voltorb.

A few years ago, I'd watch my nephews and nieces play Pokemon on their Nintendo 64, Gameboy and DS and not understand a word of what they were talking about. Now I understand most everything they're saying. I'm hooked.

I thought my 6 year old and I were the last 2 people on earth who still played Nintendo 64.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. Yesterday I trapped on this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Playstation tournaments[/url]
They say you can play online EA sports game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?

I just received a bluetooth headset and cannot get it to turn on. I have it charging and connected to the playstation. It shows that it is charging by flashing red but when I try to turn the power on nothing happens. How do I fix this? Thanks!

I've heard that the Playstation 3 systems that are now in production have no backwards compatibility with the original Playstation and Playstation 2 games. I've also heard you can install software to add backwards compatibility, and then I've heard others refute that statement. What is the real deal here?
