Learning to code games

Posted by Rudy in Rudy's Blog, 27 July 2014 · 40 views

I've been working for about a week and a half on learning to code games for the Atari 2600.  I've come up with 19 game ideas and installed batari basic.  Now I feel my next step should be to learn batari, before I try anything else in terms of coding.  I was able to comment some code that I got the source code off atariage but I think the b...

Must...stay...awake

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 27 July 2014 · 17 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,...

Taking my fight for justice to Kickstarter.

Posted by Tickled_Pink in Tickled_Pink's Blog, 27 July 2014 · 83 views

As some will know, 15 years ago my life was turned upside down by an evil, scheming, manipulative lying female, a criminal justice system that did everything it could to help her and a tabloid press who subjected me to a malicious witch-hunt. It left me with PTSD, on top of a pre-existing severe depression that had been caused by this female and her mothe...

Miner Dig Deep (Xbox 360)

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 27 July 2014 · 66 views

I stopped playing this Xbox 360 indie game a fairly long time ago when I got bored with the long elevator rides, but I recently started playing it again and got down to the bottom. I won't tell you what is down there in case you haven't played it, but I don't think it will spoil anything to let you know that you can choose to keep all of your items and...

Salvo, update #3. challenge accepted, humanoid saved

Posted by RevEng in dragging through the retro streets at dawn, 26 July 2014 · 109 views

For a while my time has been occupied with work and 7800basic updates, but in recently days I've managed to squeeze in some Salvo updates.

Gameplay additions include:
Humanoids to save. The enemies shots don't kill the humanoids, but if the enemies touch the humanoid it will die. By running over the humanoid he'll follow you for the rest of the level, so...

Moon Patrol

Posted by --- Ω --- in TI-99/4A Stuff, 25 July 2014 · 155 views

Moon Patrol MOON PATROL for the TI-99/4A is one of my all-time favorite games for the unit .
 
This is one of those classic games that one can 'zone-out' on when they have a few free moments to enjoy their Classic Computer hobby.
 
I like especially like these old games because you do not need to sit down and study a 2 inch book for a week to learn how to...

DIRPRINT.ACC - Print Disk directories from desktop

Diamond

This is the last accessory from the ones written pre-2000.  I was hoping that by this time I would have remembered how they had been created. Looks like the learning curve will start from the beginning again. It should take me about 10 min. to go over vast amount of literature about programming Diamond accessories.

Snowpiercer (?) - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 22 July 2014 · 146 views
Movies

Yeah... I'd never heard of Snowpiercer 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...

Posted by Paul Lay in Paul Lay's Blog, 18 July 2014 · 460 views


 
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...

After a longoff, back with another episode of 1.21GoG and today we are going to look at the five Mega Man games that came out on the Nintendo Gameboy and for amusement, the games are in their original green monochrome for realness purposes. Much like my mother Ice Queen X(treme)/Ice T. Gressa played Ninja Gaiden 3 in the previous episode as a special gues...

What I've been up to

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...
