That was fast.

Posted by atari2600land, 31 July 2014 · 23 views

So I ordered After Burner for the 32x off of eBay on Tuesday and it came today. What's even more impressive is that it made a long journey from Maryland to Oregon in not very much time. I got it to work after a few tries. I had a horrible eye ache last night that just wouldn't stop. Even a vomiting session which proved successful multiple times couldn't c...


Sega!

Posted by atari2600land, 29 July 2014 · 81 views

I actually went to a store that had Game Gear games for sale. I bought Pengo and Cutthroat Island. I looked it up on segaage and it's not an American cart. So that answers my question I was going to ask but never got around to about whether the Game Gear is region-free or not. So now I have 41 cartridges for the Game Gear, and I realize that I need to hav...


Must...stay...awake

Posted by atari2600land, 27 July 2014 · 49 views

I went to sleep last night at one and woke up at six. The problem is the one is 1 AM and the six is 6 PM. Yes, I slept about 17 hours. I got up briefly at 1 pm to go to the bathroom and take some pills and eat a Subway sandwich, but then I went back to sleep again. It's weird. Suddenly I get very sleepy. Sometimes I sleep for about 13 or 14 hours before,...


Wordmaster

Posted by atari2600land, 25 July 2014 · 84 views

Something I am not. Apparently. It's a DS game a lot like Jumble, but there's no cartoon and no hidden message, just words to unscramble with a hint. Sometimes the hint is awful. (i.e. "Politics" as the clue and "leaper" is the word. What?! Another odd one was the clue was "Health" and the word was "health.") I am not a word master because I didn't know a...


Going ape.

Posted by atari2600land, 23 July 2014 · 80 views

So I knew where my 7800 was, but I couldn't find the games for it. So I checked all my boxes out in the garage. I found them. I brought it in. I was wanting to know if my copy of Xenophobe would not roll on my 7800 like it does on my 2600. Well, I tried it and it still rolls. Bummer. So I figured while I still have it out, why not play with it some more?...


WMV woes

Posted by atari2600land, 22 July 2014 · 104 views

So I finally solved a problem I had with a video I had made. It's only 11 seconds long, but the last few seconds wouldn't show. I put it on the internet on my own website. My own website only allows files 5MB and lower. This one was 2MB. But I put in all the necessary HTML to display a video, but it wouldn't display the ending. So I took a month to come b...


PSPart 2

Posted by atari2600land, 21 July 2014 · 105 views

I never got around to playing the other PSP game yesterday. I think I will when I'm done with this blog entry. I never did match the 950,000 I scored in Genie. I don't know which model of PSP I have. I went to the version screen and that just had a bunch of numbers on it that I didn't understand. None were 3000. I didn't know there were multiple PSP versi...


Pinball Hall of Fame for PSP

Posted by atari2600land, 19 July 2014 · 118 views

Well, I spent about a half-hour playing one table (called "Genie") on this game. I played 5 times. At the end of the fourth time, I felt like I was just going to suck once more, but that's when I got 980,000. So close to a million. And the score only held 6 digits. I wanted to see what would happen if I broke a million but I didn't. On times like this you...


PSP'ing again

Posted by atari2600land, 18 July 2014 · 160 views

So I went to GameStar South. I got two PSP games. Pinball Hall of Fame and Taito Legends Power Up. They were apparently on sale. They didn't have any sale signs anywhere except on the door about next gen trade-ins. If they're having a sale, they should say so. All came good with box and manual. Black versions on both. Now I just have to get the stickers o...


Secret no more.

I knew I was going to do this. I doubt anyone cared anyway, and I didn't want to drone on and on about working on it and you people not understanding what I was working on. So follow this link to reveal all. http://videopac.nl/f...hp?topic=2335.0
Let me know what you think of the crazy game so far.
