Frank returns.

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 30 April 2017 · 17 views

So I couldn't get to sleep last night. It was then I decided to work on Frank the Fruit Fly some more. You can get a lot done when you can't sleep. I made some title screen music for it, as well as the first few screens. You can fly down to the ant and talk to him by pressing A. Here's what he has to say:

This cat is going to be in the game. In order to...

Archipelagos Remake - Ideas Central

Posted by Tickled_Pink in TP's Blog, 30 April 2017 · 27 views

It's been a while since I did anything with this project. I've been working on a couple of simpler mobile games (one loosely based on the Amiga game, Oxyd). I'm going to try to put a few days' worth of work into this one this week.
The latest is that the game itself is working fine. After the previous update I went back to debugging the issues with...

Star Trek TAS on blu-ray

Posted by SpiceWare in SpiceWare's Blog, 29 April 2017 · 88 views

Like Doctor Who, for which I'd just received DVDs for season 9 (1972) from the UK as PAL DVDs have 20-30% more detail than NTSC DVDS (which is quite noticeable on an HDTV), I decided to go back to the very beginning of Star Trek and rewatch everything in order. 
I recently wrapped up the last season of TOS (The Original Series) and had s...

Roundabout Racer - Using Atari to Report the News

Roundabout Racer - Using Atari to Report the News Using a video game to communicate a news story is not a new idea, but is still considered very innovative. Generally, the news consumer gains a better understanding of an issue through the interactive experience. In covering the transportation debate in Wisconsin, I tried something entirely different. I programmed a game called Roundabout Racer (developme...

A very old poem I wrote -OR- page one autobiography

"Atom"      by J. Caraway
Can no one contain me
Like it or not I slip into these phases
Can't you just understand me
Living or not I slip into these phases
Burnt around the edges and questionable
Almost nothing.  Too close to everything.
Split like the truly dead atom
That which really stopped
really can't go on
Such i...

Star Trek, The Next Generation

"Ugh ugh ugh...I hated Dr. Pulaski on Star Trek!" Initial comment on Facebook by a friend:
"Ugh ugh ugh...I hated Dr. Pulaski on Star Trek!" Comment 1 :Yeah. She did suck. Comment 2: She worked some nerves. Comment 3: She wasn't that bad. My Comment:
You have to remember it in context. Gates McFadden was actually really flat as an actress the first season. Really they all were and try...

Wonderswan Podcast update

Posted by PhilipTheWhovian in PhilipTheWhovian's Blog, 25 April 2017 · 82 views

Hello everyone,
I just thought of a new title for the Wonderswan podcast and I am wondering what everyone thinks.
I am thinking of calling it "Owned by the Queen".
For those of you who do not understand the pun, in the UK (where I live), there is a common misconception that the queen owns all swans in the UK.
I am still working on the podcasts, but it wil...

Cruiz'in YouTube - April 2017 - Bubsy in Sonic Forces?

Cruiz'in YouTube - April 2017 - Bubsy in Sonic Forces? So the trailers for Sonic Forces has recently come out and they introduce a new character that they show a silhouette that looks amazingly like Bubsy.   Is this possible?    Well, there are a lot of things that support that it would.  Here are some videos that I found on this:
The first video I found that turned me ont...

Activision Patches

Posted by G-type in G-type's Blog, 18 April 2017 · 114 views

I've been playing a couple Activision games lately, (Robot Tank and Frostbite), and the pursuit of the requisite patch score really kept me hooked. I wish I could still get these patches, and I wish it was done for other Atari games too. Maybe there could be a digital version of them on AtariAge?

Ruminations on Phantasy Star III

Posted by AverageSoftware in Retrogaming Ramblings, 17 April 2017 · 148 views

There are few games that had as large of an impact on my childhood as the
Phantasy Star series.  My Sega Master System-owning neighbor had the original
game, and it came into my possession when he sold me all of his games after he
acquired a Genesis. I and my friends spent way too much time with Phantasy Star.  I even made a
complete set of...

Mean Bean Machine

I've been playing Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine on X360 Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection.   Oh what a frustrating battle, but I finally beat the quest mode and beat Dr. Robotnik's level, and got the achievement.  
I wonder how many gamers, without cheating with a password, have seen this stage:

Atari 5200 DC/DC converter.....conversion

Posted by -^Cro§Bow^- in -^CroSBow^-'s Hardware Videos, 06 April 2017 · 193 views

Replaced the original 7805 regulators from my atari 5200 recently and installed a pair of DC/DC switching converters in their place. In this video I show the power measurements from the original 7805 and from the DC/DC converters. Next up with be the Intellivision once I get additional parts in.

Zombie Attack!

Posted by jacobus in jacobus Indev, 04 April 2017 · 189 views

I released an early (too early from some of the reviews) version of this game around six months ago.  Since then a lot of things have changed – more of the game runs in the VB allowing for much smoother animations and responsiveness.   If a mob is hit with a non-lethal attack (happens more in later levels) they will get knocked back i...

Tempest 2017 - value of an unfinished project

Posted by EricBall in EricBall's Tech Projects, 27 March 2017 · 224 views

As my wife often reminds me, I have a habit of not finishing projects once I've started them.  (Usually while pointing at one of them.)  I have to say that I've gotten better at managing this habit (although not necessarily at finishing projects).  I try not to start projects, or at least start spending money instead of just time, unless I...

1.21 Gigawatts of Gaming Episode 13: Secret level in Alpha Mission NES no one seems to know about.

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 25 March 2017 · 175 views

Before I was born, mom once made a mini guide for Alpha Mission for the NES. In it, she mentioned that there was a playable Area 13 which you will fight the bosses in a boss rush. Nowhere else on the net has there been any mention of it. Not even on YouTube till now.  At around 23:23 you will see a playable Area 13. Defeating the Area 12 boss the con...
