Six Pack - Atari 2600

Posted by Marc Oberhäuser in Marc Oberhäuser's Blog, 23 August 2014 · 12 views

Here's my take on 20th Centrury Fox' Six Pack (http://www.atariprot...n3/unknown3.htm ). The label art is from the DVD release, promotional flyer/catalogs featured only the name "Six Pack", no boxart, no screenshots.

It's full of stars!

Received a question via Messager that I'm going to reply to here as I'm sure others are wondering as well:
 
 
 
I've seen posts by you in the batari Basic forum , so first thing to note is that none of my games were written using batari Basic1 . Collect , Medieval Mayhem , and Stay Frosty (the original game which is in Stella's Stockin...

Just Had a Dream About Future 3D Printers

3D Printer Dream
 
I was looking through the eyes of a reporter on a big set where different experts sat next to the items that they were going to talk about. For example, the expert talking about food was sitting next to a small area that was set up to look like part of a produce aisle (fresh fruits and vegetables aisle) at a grocery store. It was...

Maze Craze: A Game of Cops and Robbers (1980)
 
Someone in the 70s realized that there was fun to be found by using a computer to generate random mazes with a simple algorithm and allowing people to race through it. The first maze game that I can remember appearing on a home console was for the Fairchild Video Entertainment System (VES) and was cart...

King of Casino

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 22 August 2014 · 61 views

So I like casino games. It's cool that you get to wager stuff and the only money you'd lose is from buying the game. Let's get this straight, though, I'm not a gambling addict. So anyway, I bought the game King of Casino for the Turbo-Grafx 16 off eBay a few days ago. It came today. I popped it in. It's a fun little game, although they don't have video po...

TILES212.APP - old game updated for Diamond GOS

Posted by Pack007 in Diamond in the Rough, 17 August 2014 · 102 views

I was waiting for the Diamond GOS APP store to open before I posted this game. I finally figured it wasn't going to happen - soon. So here is the Tiles game that will give you something to play while we wait.



As you can see, I got out the old Zenith Data System monitor and removed the Windows NT computer from my desk. I like the color green. It may ha...

Coursera vs UMN

Posted by scrottie in scrottie's Blog, 12 August 2014 · 70 views

Coursera is free, or $50 a course if you want a "verified certificate", where they make an attempt to verify your identity and that you are there while the tests are taken.  Courses are across broad topic ranges and include some solidly advanced, nerdy stuff.  There's no admissions process and it isn't accredited.  Assistance is from peers,...

I just don't understand........

Posted by PacManPlus in PacManPlus' Blog, 12 August 2014 · 139 views

Back in 2011, 8 months after I moved to Florida from Long Island, my best friend of 33 years (at the time) was diagnosed with throat cancer. He did smoke, but was not a heavy smoker (like someone who would go through packs a day).
This cancer eventually spread to his lungs, and he tried many different (even experimental) procedures to shove the cance...

I kinda like soldering

Posted by mos6507 in mos6507's Blog, 09 August 2014 · 102 views

I live in pretty cramped conditions, and I don't really like soldering with my daughter around.  Right now I'm soldering on a table in her room, so when she comes back in September I really will have no good place to do it separate from her room.  But I am getting kind of a mini-nostalgia thing going doing the AtariVox+ soldering.  I feel a...

Started high school yesterday and a got a trend to buck.

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 07 August 2014 · 118 views

Four more years of hell to go. I'm lucky I started schooling in California rather than Arizona or I would have had five or six more years instead of four because you had to be a certain age to start school in Arizona. Thus I'll be 16 1/2 by the time I graduate. Will I be the one to buck the family trend on mom's side of the family of becoming a parent bef...

Road Not Taken

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 06 August 2014 · 121 views

A couple of years ago my wife and I played an MMO called Glitch.  IMHO Glitch was doomed from the start because it only charged real money for vanity items and it wasn't social enough or fun enough to play indefinitely.  However, the stylized artwork was was very well done and one of the more enjoyable parts of the game.

Looping

This happens to be my favorite colecovision game right now basically you fly a plane through an obstacle course and its really difficult to control the plane and shoot all the weird (bouncing balls?  Plus sign thingies) that threaten to crash into your plane.  Here is a hint.  When you get to the last chamber, there's three balls bouncing f...

The frustration that is Aliexpress

Alliexpress, Sucks

As you may or may not know Alliexpress is a short of an ebay alternative and Aliexpress sucks ! Seriously don't buy from aliexpress! Never buy from Aliexpress . Send Aliexpress where it belongs, to history! 
 
Long story short. I bought a Samsung Galaxy S4 screen from a seller in Aliexpress and the item was defective.  Meaning that the dig...
