Dreamcast game #50

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 05 May 2016 · 27 views

I have reached a milestone in my Dreamcast collection. Technically I did a few days ago, but I'm only counting complete games in this one. I got my fiftieth game at Game Crazy South today. Which game did I pick? The only game that interested me (that wasn't an All-Star selection. Crazy Taxi was there but it was a Sega All-Stars edition so I didn't want it...

As with last year , and the year before , and the year before , and the year before , and the year before , and the year before , and the year before , and the year before , and even the year before that, (and all of the years before that before I had a blog), it's the end of the school year here at CalArts, and I've been buried in work, putting our stu...

Happy 23rd Birthday to Bubsy Bobcat! Just a quick shout out to Bubsy Bobcat and congrats on his 23rd birthday!
 
Been an exciting year for Bubsy with the first two games re-released on the Steam platform this last year.  Sponge Fox and I interviewed Michael Berlyn and Faran Thomason and we will have those interviews up shortly.  Those interviews will also give some insight f...

I'm jealous of all the blog entries on the right hand side of the screen, so here's another one.  Hope you enjoy it.

Found In a Barn Loft

Posted by simbalion in Musings of the White Lion, 02 May 2016 · 77 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.

fm towns, marty, cd lens, failure

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 · 46 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

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....

HBO Redux

Game of Thrones starts up again tonight so I reactivated my HBO Now subscription. Looks like they finally gotten their act together!   Last year the symbol next to Casting By  in the title sequence looked like it contained 4 crosses:

 
now you can see that the crosses are actually fleurs-de-lis:

LG Blu-Ray Player With Wi-Fi

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 18 April 2016 · 69 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 · 185 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 · 94 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...

"Bruce Lee" (C64) in TI-99 ISR format

Posted by OLD CS1 in OLD CS1's Blog, 09 April 2016 · 59 views

"Bruce Lee" (C64) in TI-99 ISR format After hearing a couple of remixes of "Bruce Lee" from the Commodore 64, I was compelled (distracted?) to make a quick conversion and my own little remix (not yet completed,) both in TI-99 ISR format.  This particular piece is a good candidate for its own special player, being that the format of the song is roughly A-B-B-C-D-D-C-(E-F-G)-H.  Noth...

4K why?

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 08 April 2016 · 177 views

The other day I was browsing a warehouse sale which had a few 4K TVs (but no 3D, which I found interesting), and it got me to thinking about them.  Not because I want one, but strictly on a why? basis.
 
The local cable company is hyping their 4K TV offering, starting with local baseball and hockey games.  But when I'm watching my 55" HDTV,...

Star Wars: The Force Awakens Blu-ray review

Star Wars

I've seen The Force Awakens four times now. Three viewings at the theater, and one at home on my new BD copy.   
 
Review Grade:  A 
 
I simply adore The Force Awakens! I love it!  I love it more than any of the prequels. I love how it feels like natural 30-years-later continuation of the original trilogy that I loved as...

5200 spare 4013 IC?

Anybody have a spare 4013 IC I could use for some upcoming 5200 surgery?  Yeah, I could get like five of 'em for $1.50 shipped from China, but I don't need five... and if one of you fine folks has one laying in the bottom of a drawer...
