So I looked for info on the Pokemon Mini thing. As it turns out, the cartridge I had had a date/time function, not the console itself. If you turn it on without a cart in it, it tells you to put a cart in it. I ordered an English version of Pokemon Party which I have the Japanese version of. I also was having problems with the high score function in Aaron...

My Pokemon Mini has arrived!

Posted by atari2600land, in Pokemon Mini 02 March 2015 · 26 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 · 81 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 · 73 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 · 94 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 · 76 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 · 51 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 · 113 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 · 102 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 · 103 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...
