Celery runs amok

Posted by atari2600land, 04 May 2015 · 23 views

I added a bit to the second episode of the Celery Show. In this little bit, Mr. Celery jumps atop the garlic factory. Since he can't destroy it by jumping on it, he then lights a molotov cocktail and throws it on the factory and it sets on fire. Why? It's no secret that the rivalry between stalks of celery and cloves of garlic go back centuries. Garlic an...

ow! my back!

Posted by atari2600land, 03 May 2015 · 45 views

So I went to the doctor on May 1. Everything was fine and I was OK. I go to sleep and wake up on May 2 with a back ache. It goes away a little, so I go to sleep. Today is May 3 and it's worse. I've been up for 2 hours and tried chewable ibuprofen and Deep Heating and nothing seems to make the pain go away. It's not my spine, it's my upper back, a little t...

almost Jag collecting quitting time

Posted by atari2600land, 02 May 2015 · 71 views

So here I am, two games away from completing a Jaguar collection. It's not all the Jaguar games, though. I can't afford Rayman, et al. And I don't have a Jaguar CD thing, so I don't have any Jag CD games. And I probably couldn't afford a Jaguar CD anyway with the eBay asking prices. So anyway, I ordered Fever Pitch Soccer off of eBay (I think the e doesn'...

the return of Nintendo Stuff!

Posted by atari2600land, 01 May 2015 · 66 views

I am going to report that Nintendo Stuff, the newsletter I made about the N64 in January and February 2015, is back! The May 2015 is up. I made two pages of it today, reviewing a N64 game that I had been slacking off on playing. But first I had to get my N64 out of the garage. I found one. I plugged it in with my N64 RF thing. It worked, but no sound. So...

the return of a magazine

Posted by atari2600land, 30 April 2015 · 60 views

So magazines are supposedly useless now when anyone can just go to the internet and get humor. Well, try telling that to Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon Magazine is returning to the newsstand.
The issue will make its debut sometime in late June. The old one ceased publication with the last issue made December 2009/January 2010 issue. I used to have issue 1 of th...

No wander

Posted by atari2600land, 29 April 2015 · 66 views

Well, I think I finally got the cars confined to the track. Although there is an interesting bug that shows when you play it in O2EM. The blue car can actually go off the track if you put the red car on the edge and drive the blue car off the track. Since O2EM is screwy, though, and it doesn't happen on real hardware, I'll leave it in. For some reason, I'...

I forgot about Spin-Out!

Posted by atari2600land, 28 April 2015 · 87 views

...but I think with some help that I can make a better game than it. I spent 3 hours trying to make it so the cars can't go off the track, when I just decided to give up. I believe it can be done, but I can't figure out how. Perhaps someone else can. Anyway, I got two cars in. Their tires rotate like the ones in Motorodeo, round, then slanting. Really fas...

A new Odyssey 2 game perhaps.

Mort the Chicken (part 2)

Posted by atari2600land, 26 April 2015 · 60 views

Well, I played and completed two more levels of the game. The third level was really hard, though. But I discovered something that will help me: Mort can attack the cubes. If Mort attacks a cube, it vanishes. If Mort touches a cube, though, he loses a chick and it goes back to its original spot. That and the health meter drops. Which is really tough when...

Mort the Chicken

Posted by atari2600land, 25 April 2015 · 73 views

I want to play video games with the original controllers and stuff that came with the console. Call me weird. In the case of Mort the Chicken for the PS1, though, I may have to change my thoughts. It's a collect-a-thon, a la Super Mario 64, only instead of the stuff collecting is stars (although there are stars in the game to collect, the manual states no...
