Snowpiercer (?) - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 22 July 2014 · 52 views

Yeah... I'd never heard of Snowpiecer before, either. This despite it having a fairly-star-studded cast including Chris Evans (Captain America), John Hurt and Ed Harris.

I think  this film is the reason for a bit of Avengers trivia. In The Avengers' shwarma end-credits scene, Evans is hiding his face with his hand. The reason being, he had grown a b...

WMV woes

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 22 July 2014 · 53 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...

Since the last demo the enemy missiles are now multiplexed so there are more of them on screen but the main change is the addition of interaction with the background. There are currently 3 types of land objects:
Blocks - block your missiles and cannot be destroyed
Targets - block your missiles but are destro...

I hesitate to post a blog entry but I know a few people here have some interest in knowing what's going on in my life beyond classic gaming, so I'll offer this update.
Last summer I freaked out because Xtranormal went out of business and I thought that was my E-ticket ride to a career-change.  Well, here we are entering the following summer, a...

$3.85 an hour at Toys "Я" Us in 1986

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 21 June 2014 · 152 views

I was looking through some old papers and saw that I was making $3.85 an hour when I started working at Toys "Я" Us (October 30, 1986). I was one of the many people who helped get the store stocked and fixed up for the grand opening. After the store was ready for the public, I was working in the security booth with all of the video games and compute...

First playable demo of "Ninja"

Posted by BioForceApe in Bio's Blog of Randomness, 09 June 2014 · 139 views

A lot of school time has passed through me in this month, so it took me really long to adapt ramcharmap to 16px after figuring out that there is no such thing as a playfield in the 7800. Other than that, little Ninja hasn't yet  received weapons, but he can walk on a 12-lined playfield now. Oh, I forgot that his sprites are totally gli...
