The AMAZING new "FlashROM 99" Cartridge The NEW
FlashROM 99
 
The new FlashROM 99 that came out in May of 2016 is a definite paradigm shift in cartridge technology for the TI-99/4A.  In the past, if one wanted a ROM based program in a cartridge they either had to buy an EEPROM programmer, like the MiniPRO TL866CS, and some chips, and do it themselves, or pay someone else to do i...

N64 time

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 31 May 2016 · 14 views

I updated my avatar to reflect my current gaming status. Right now I'm really into the N64. So I put the rotating N as my avatar. It's only 36k, so it's not a really big file in size. And since I am back into the N64, this means I am going to make a new issue of Nintendo Stuff for July 2016. The N64's 20th anniversary is coming up this September 30, so if...

The Ballad Of Atari: 1980 (Part 2)

Atari Is The

Unhappy with progress :(

Posted by Dmitry in Dmitry's Blog, 30 May 2016 · 38 views

I found yet another lag within controls - related to the original logic of Nerm, and I was upset.
 
I know it's ludicrous and wrong.  Someone didn't write this program 33 years ago to upset me.
 
And furthermore the game was well received and enjoyed at the time - but it has 3 different problems with lag.
 
And when I found the third o...

New old music - part 12: "Good Times!"

No... I am not going to start off this blog post with "Hey, hey - it's The Monkees' 50th anniversary".
 
Even though it is anyway.
 
Fortunately, I'm not quite old enough to remember when they were originally on TV. But I am old enough to have started watching them in the mid-70's. Anyway, you can read all about that whole thing here .

Crash Bandicoot E3

Will we see Crash @ E3 this year?    Its been a while since a new crash game came out, and the people of the internet miss their favorite bandicoot! Once we saw that the original Crash Bandicoot was a playable Easter egg in Uncharted 4, theories seemed to explode citing evidence from all over that Crash was making a comeback! While Sony cant or wont confirm anything as...

Crash Bandicoot

A Warm Welcome to the Crash Bandicoot blog that launched today! So we've been having fun here on the Bubsy Bobcat Fan Blog with our tracking of fan art, music, news, speedruns, and lately the interviews with developers and producers that brought us Bubsy.
 
A friend of mine was inspired by that and decided to launch a similar blog for his favorite mascot, Crash Bandicoot.  So here is the link, go give that n...

It's how the game industry works today

Posted by Serguei2 in Robin Gravel's Blog, 23 May 2016 · 93 views

It was the time when you buy a game, you have a physical game and the manual.
 
Back to home, you start playing the new game. The manual might help you need it.
 
 
What do you have now?
 
The games are available only on the internet. You have to download them. Create an account on the game websites. Because you can't play if you don't...

Sculpted in Steel

My sister (Chelle) came up for the weekend with my nephew (Zander) and his sister (Aubrey).  We took them to the Museum of Fine Arts to see Sculpted in Steel: Art Deco Automobiles and Motorcycles, 1929–1940
 
Chelle checking out the 1929 Bugatti Type 46

Games of Atari - Atari 5200 Captures (Mostly) Complete! ColecoVision Next?

Posted by FujiSkunk in FujiSkunk's Blog, 16 May 2016 · 78 views

All of the games I physically own for the Atari 5200 now have captures on Games of Atari , including all third-party cartridges.  I'm especially happy at how the entries for Q*Bert , Frogger and Popeye are turning out.  They're really starting to look like those old Parker Brothers ads that first got me interested in how games look on diffe...

Why Episode VII is Secretly a Parody of Spaceballs -Or- May the Schwartz Be Wit' You! Has everyone had their newest installment of 'What the future will think is our history!'?  I watched it about seven times in a row and just can't help but see it as some type of inside-joke-parody of Spaceballs with a hint of Scream thrown in for good measure.
 
Here's the list!... :P
 
Both Dark Helmet and Kylo Ren pop the mask and have a...

Found In a Barn Loft

Posted by simbalion in Musings of the White Lion, 02 May 2016 · 158 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.

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 · 101 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....
