My Pokemon Mini has arrived!

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 02 March 2015 · 5 views

My Pokemon Mini has arrived! I put in the AAA battery, set the time and date, but it's all in Japanese, so I don't know how to make the cartridge work! Which screen do I use to make the cartridge turn on? The time and date are on screen 9/9, and screens 1-8 all have Japanese on them. I figure I had better know if the cartridges work before I give eBay fee...

"Ultimate" NES Remix

Posted by atari2600land, 01 March 2015 · 63 views

Slim pickings for the 3DS as of late. I figured since I hadn't played my 3DS in a long time that I would take it for a spin with a new 3DS game. So I got Ultimate NES Remix, The Wii-U version is called "NES Remix Pack", so separate titles for some reason. I played the game for 18 minutes, so enough for a first impression. About half that time was spent do...

The weakness of Alien Crush

Posted by atari2600land, in TG-16 27 February 2015 · 70 views

So I was playing Alien Crush. I got good enough to be listed on the high score table. So I went to go get my camera and the brief second it displayed it, it left! And gave me no time to enter my name! So I had to wait until the demo was over, TWICE, until the exact second it displayed the high score (which I never got to enter my initials on!) I did it at...

Turbo-Grafx 16 again

Posted by atari2600land, 26 February 2015 · 93 views

I'm in the mood for TurboGrafx 16 games again. I got two $5 off coupons from eBay since my game was one day late. I don't know why they felt they had to do that for me, though. I don't care. So I figured I might as well use 1 of them. So I got Vigilante, which is the Turbo-Grafx 16 equivalent of Double Dragon (or so Digital Press claims.) I'd get out my A...

King Rabbit

Posted by atari2600land, 25 February 2015 · 74 views

So I was working on the Celery movie again. I was wondering why the stupid thing wasn't working right. Turns out, prematurely switching from a 16k to a 32k file solved it. Perhaps my .bas file was getting too large and there is an unknown limit to how big a 16k .bas file can be. It would explain why it had a problem with the line that just said "COLUBK=$3...

Over the 3 minute mark

Posted by atari2600land, 24 February 2015 · 50 views

Worked some more on "the celery show" today. I thought of an interesting name for this episode: "Rapid Rabid Rabbits." I added a scene in and made it over the three minute mark. But I encountered some sort of weirdness while scrolling up with the pfcolors on. Seems I can't control the pfcolor with COLUPF if I am scrolling up. Thus, when it scrolls up, the...

The DS in 2014

Posted by atari2600land, 23 February 2015 · 110 views

I thought the only DS game released in 2014 was "Lego Friends". Apparently the game is for lonely tween girls. But I went to Wal-Mart and saw another DS game: "Big Hero 6", apparently based on the 2014 movie. I did not know about this game that came out last year. So that makes two. And here I thought the Frozen and the Barbie games in November 2013 were...

Game Gear collection

Posted by atari2600land, 22 February 2015 · 99 views

I now have 69 Game Gear games. They were stored in a big bin, while my Jaguar games were in 2 bins. What I did was switched it around so now all my Jaguar games are in the big bin and my Game Gear collection is in the 2 bins. I'm going to have to find a third bin pretty soon. I got Asterix at the game store. I realized that the prices were different. They...

Gotta Catch 'Em All!

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 21 February 2015 · 101 views

I am by no means a Pokemon fan. However, if I wanted every SINGLE Nintendo system (NES and up), I would have to fork over an insane amount of money and buy a Pokemon Mini from Japan. So that's what I did. Well, not an insane amount, but it is one of my most expensive video game purchases ever. I think I'll be selling some more stuff soon to get more money...

Larry's Changes

Posted by atari2600land, 20 February 2015 · 87 views

I thought making the title screen using pfblocks was, well, a bit boring. So I decided to change it. This is the result:

I kind of like it. It reminds me of the Beatles' White Album cover. Only not.
Since the playfield wasn't defined and the players were defined on the title screen, this meant a few changes in order to make things fit in 2k. The backgro...
