Dreamcast games

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 01 May 2016 · 18 views

So I went to the game store. There were two Dreamcast consoles that were new to the store since I came in last. It had been a while because I had been sleeping all day and been awake all night. But this morning I woke up at 3am, so I was able to get out and go somewhere. I got Sonic Adventure 2 for the Dreamcast there, it was one of the newer games there,...

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 · 34 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...

CX2602 : Air Sea Battle

Posted by fultonbot in Fultonbot's Atari Haiku Blog, 28 April 2016 · 48 views

Ships battling planes
As anti-aircraft guns fire 
In head to head fights
 
No way to stop them
Everything just keeps on moving
Fire, never forget
 
Air Sea Battle game?
Judge this book by it's cover
Because both ruled
 
 

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 · 59 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 · 168 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 · 86 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 · 50 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 · 171 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

Posted by Cafeman in Caféman's Blog, 07 April 2016 · 132 views
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...

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - Spoiler-free movie review

Back on April 8, 2015, I posted a status update about the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice teaser trailer , and my impression at the time was, "Batman v. Superman sure looks... dreary."
 
Monday night (admittedly, at an 11:15PM showing) I saw BvS in at the ArcLight  theater in Sherman Oaks. This was in one of their biggest thea...

I downloaded the file but it only translated the left side - when clicking on any items there - nothing displayed on right - what is wrong?
