I've used to play Nintendo's Vs. Golf back-in-the-day-when-you-could-actually-play-it-in-the-arcades.
When I got into MacMAME (now 20 years ago!!!!) I picked it up again, and the best score I shot at the time was 59:
I think that was 13 under par (the course changes, so the overal...

Three chips off the old block

Keeping an old 2600 running isn't always easy...
My original 2600 is kind of an odd one to begin with, in that it was a factory reconditioned Sears console, with a light-sixer case, but heavy-sixer insides. Apparently, this is just something Atari did. It makes sense - if they're factory-refurbishing something, they'll put it back into the best, or...

Even though it had... appeared? ...been released? ...shown up? ...landed?  No... that's not the word I'm looking for...

Out of curiosity more than anything, although maybe with a slight tinge of hope, I recently picked up an ATGames "Atari" Flashback Portable.
I was given a Flashback 2 about ten years ago as a gift from a couple of friends who knew I was into Atari. I plugged it in once, played through some of the exclusive games on it (most of which were terrible...

Rogue One - A Spoiler-free Movie Review

Posted by Nathan Strum, 16 December 2016 · 334 views
I got the chance to see Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on Thursday night (okay - technically Friday morning) thanks to a friend of mine who invited me to a screening at Disney Feature Animation. Nothing like seeing a Star Wars movie in a room full of nerds. :D
I'll try to keep this brief, because it's 3 AM and I'm really, really tired. Oh, and so i...
