Che Guevara Game #2

Posted by vidak in vidak's Blog, 20 November 2017 · 38 views

I decided to go into the city today and work from a Starbucks. It's a very different experience than the library. Homeless people frequently come in asking for money. I feel better about coming here than the posh Sydney University library because that way I can give my change to people who need it.
 
I remember reading an article on why you should gi...

My teacher ate 2,600 lemons.

Posted by atari2600land in atari2600land's Blog, 20 November 2017 · 51 views

So while I was looking through my 2600 manual collection, I came across a Desert Falcon manual. And I thought "Wow. They made new 2600 games up until 1990." Then it occurred to me: If people make homebrew 2600 games, then I should make another one, too. After all, my name isn't IntellivisionLand. So I began work on a 2600 version of My History Teacher Ate...

Atari VCS Ad (September 1982)

Posted by Random Terrain in Random Terrain's Tetraternarium, 20 November 2017 · 78 views

This Atari 2600 VCS ad was in the September 1982 issue of Playboy . It's the same one I have on my Atari's Promise Means It's Not Cheating page.

Spending some time with the Sega Genesis Flashback

Spending some time with the Sega Genesis Flashback Having an affinity for and owning Sega Genesis and Genesis 2 consoles, I found myself intrigued by AtGames' new Sega Genesis Flashback .  I have experience with AtGames' Sega Genesis Classic and Portable which I found lacking to some degree though usable, but the promises of an updated emulation engine and built-in HDMI were a draw which I could not...

RealSports Curling

Posted by AverageSoftware in AverageSoftware's Development Blog, 17 November 2017 · 114 views

I've now finished the last of the major changes to the shooting system, and the curl application phase is now much simpler and more effective.
 

 
The original curl phase of the shooting process involved an ugly gauge that you used to apply curl in various degrees.  This just didn't work well at all, so now it's very simple: you curl up,...

So, there is a collection of 24 games that will try to make it past the first hurdle in becoming the best Atari 2600 sport game ever.  There are some titles here that will put on a brave face and try to punch over their weight class.  Barely 4kb lightweights against some 16kb behemoths?  Who will make it past the initial round and get a goo...

Thor: Ragnarok - Spoiler-free review

Posted by Nathan Strum in (Insert stupid Blog name here), 16 November 2017 · 177 views
Movies

It's been a few months since I've reviewed any movies. I did get out to see Dunkirk after Spider-Man: Homecoming, but never wrote up a review for it. In short - I thought it was really well done. Very different from a typical war movie, and well worth seeing on a big screen. But since it's out of theaters now... I don't think you'd get the same sort of...

I started wonder if one day, we could order the whole grocerie by mail.
 
Ice cream, frozen cakes, fish, fruits, vegetables and other could be a challenge to send them by mail.

Hidden Mr. Dream dodge sprite from Punch Out NES

Posted by Dragon Princess Yushira in DPYushira's Entertainment Blog, 12 November 2017 · 108 views

For the record, I call this a hidden sprite rather than an unused sprite because each fighter in Punch Out actually has a dodge sprites to avoid uppercuts except for King Hippo of course. But to those who don't dodge uppercuts so often, Glass Joe, Great Tiger, and Mike Tyson do dodge uppercuts. It was discovered that Glass Joe will dodge uppercuts after t...

When is a 410 not a 410?

Posted by Pack007 in Out of the Pack, 26 October 2017 · 202 views
410, Cassette, recorder

When is a 410 not a 410? When it’s a camouflaged storage box.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 
It took me years of careful deliberation before I could gut one of my 410 Data Cassette Recorders.  I finally came to the conclusion that I wasn't going to replace the belts just so I could play "Sammy the Sea Serpent"....

My Panasonic 42 PLASMA shorted out

Posted by Cafeman in Caféman's Blog, 25 October 2017 · 177 views

Of all the strange timing. I hooked up my Atari Xegs to the VCR with RF cable, which is hooked up to the hdtv's video input. You see, I finally programmed Adventure II XEGS onto my first Atari max cart and was planning to start real hardware play testing. At first I just popped in Jungle Hunt. Had truly awful connection, lots of static. Then... the hdtv w...

Is the "Console" Concept Dead?

Posted by mos6507 in mos6507's Blog, 23 October 2017 · 212 views

I've actually felt for a LONG time that consoles as anything Generation-X would classify as such are an obsolete concept.  It's not that hardware is dead, but consoles are dead.  Technically speaking the current XBox and Playstation are consoles, but are they really?  They're both x86 boxes with PC-derived graphics hardware are they not?...
