More computer troubles

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 25 May 2016 · 14 views

When I am away for a time, the computer shuts off and quits being responsive. I have to unplug it and plug it back in and then press the power button for it to come back. And also the Bluetooth capabilities quit working. Why can't people make a non-stupid computer that works all the time like my old one? I tried changing the sleep settings but that didn't...

It's how the game industry works today

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 23 May 2016 · 65 views

It was the time when you buy a game, you have a physical game and the manual.
 
Back to home, you start playing the new game. The manual might help you need it.
 
 
What do you have now?
 
The games are available only on the internet. You have to download them. Create an account on the game websites. Because you can't play if you don't...

Frake makes an appearance

Posted by Dmitry in Dmitry's Blog, 22 May 2016 · 42 views

With the announcemenet of the ABBUC contest, and the entry deadline of July 31st, I decided to, as they say "go for it"
 
But it's a no-nonsense complete change of focus.  The Nerm rewrite is over for now.  With so little time left my focus is getting Frake finished.
 
Ignore the colors, ignore the glitches - I changed the character to...

Games of Atari - Atari 5200 Captures (Mostly) Complete! ColecoVision Next?

Posted by FujiSkunk in FujiSkunk's Blog, 16 May 2016 · 72 views

All of the games I physically own for the Atari 5200 now have captures on Games of Atari , including all third-party cartridges.  I'm especially happy at how the entries for Q*Bert , Frogger and Popeye are turning out.  They're really starting to look like those old Parker Brothers ads that first got me interested in how games look on diffe...

Why Episode VII is Secretly a Parody of Spaceballs -Or- May the Schwartz Be Wit' You! Has everyone had their newest installment of 'What the future will think is our history!'?  I watched it about seven times in a row and just can't help but see it as some type of inside-joke-parody of Spaceballs with a hint of Scream thrown in for good measure.
 
Here's the list!... :P
 
Both Dark Helmet and Kylo Ren pop the mask and have a...

Captain America: Civil War - Spoiler-free movie review

Movies

I'm just about to head off for a late-night show at the ArcLight. I'll be posting a review either much later tonight, or in all likelihood, tomorrow.
 
I hadn't quite planned on going to see the movie this soon, but it's getting really difficult to avoid spoilers.
 
I've really been looking forward to this movie, since Winter Soldier was so go...

Found In a Barn Loft

Posted by simbalion in Musings of the White Lion, 02 May 2016 · 150 views

This is one of a few flea market finds I got yesterday, a 1924 Radiola Superheterodyne complete with tubes. According to the seller, he found this buried in the upper loft of an old barn locally. This is a piece of radio history as it is one of the first sets to use the superheterodyne circuit and is basically the first portable superheterodyne radio. Yes...

Marty refuses to leave.

Well, it looks like I won't be parting with the FM TOWNS Marty after all. I officially sold it (i.e., received payment for it) last Tuesday. I streamed it Thursday night afterwards and then went to record last-minute game footage Friday night before shipping it out, only to find that the discs refused to spin. I dug into the unit and could only surmise it...

1.21 Gigawatts of Gaming Episode 9: We need a little Contraversy Part 1.

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 28 April 2016 · 93 views

Sophomore year is drawing to a close so I'll be able to tend the blog a little. This episode focuses on some of the games in the Contra series and its UK counterpart Probotector because of relegations on depictions of humans killing each other in war. 
 
The first video is Gryzor which was PurrfectTrio's very first overall episode. At a time, th...

Torpedo Projector - screen shots The Torpedo Projector has been sitting on the shelf for a few years.  The instructions were written around 2007 and  that's about how long its been sitting on the shelf.   I played a couple of games of Star Raiders on the 6 foot screen, but I can't believe I was overly impressed since that was the last time it was out of the box....

LG Blu-Ray Player With Wi-Fi

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 18 April 2016 · 121 views

When I got an Amazon Fire Stick last year, I gave my Blu-Ray player to my mother since my Samsung HDTV only has two HDMI ports. My sister was becoming irritated that I couldn't watch Blu-ray movies, so I thought a good thing to do would be to buy a Blu-ray player that could also play movies and TV shows from Amazon. I could kill three birds with two HDM...

BurgerTime Remake: And then there were more enemies!

Posted by splendidnut in splendidnut's Blog, 13 April 2016 · 292 views

I'm long overdue for an update... so here it is:
 
There are now 4 enemies (including a Mr.Egg, and Mr. Pickle) running around on the screen utilizing a 20/30 Hz Flicker routine.  I'm planning on improving it by attempting to fit in some mid-screen sprite changes into the display kernel.
For the most part, the enemies run around the level proper...

Midwest Gaming Classic

Posted by BawesomeBurf in BawesomeBurf's Blog, 12 April 2016 · 150 views

Had a great weekend out at the Midwest Gaming Classic. Got a lot of praise for the Lego NES consoles, and there were a number of people interested in buying one of them. The highlights of the event for me were seeing Ben Heck's giant Game Boy and getting to chat with him for a bit, and seeing the band Mechanical Life Vein play a jazz version of the Metroi...
