  1. If enough people buy Gyvolver, it will pay for my AtariAge subscription:




    My two year subscription expired on December 1, 2019.

      Running out of money?

      Seaweed Assault has been paying for my AtariAge subscriptions, but it has pretty much run out of steam. Now it's time for Gyvolver to be the hero.

    3. GoldLeader


      Sounds like money well spent to me :) ...Of course I'm so broke this month I can barely pay attention ;)

  2. Gyvolver is now in the AtariAge store: https://atariage.com/store/index.php?l=product_detail&p=1207
  3. Can you describe what you're doing with VbB? If we solve your problem, it might help others in the future. First, are you using Build 568 and the latest version of bB?
  4. America lied! Wandering around in the desert is not a cure for amnesia!

      Hey, at least there ain't no one for to give you no pain.

  5. Civilization Revolution (Xbox 360) Sim City (SNES) Sim City 2000 (SNES) Theme Park (3DO or PS1) [Don't remember which version was better.] RollerCoaster Tycoon (Xbox) Acclaim Othello (NES) Tengen Ms. Pac-Man (NES) [Has many options, including Pac Booster.] E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (Atari 2600) Star Control II (3DO) No Man's Sky (PS4) [I haven't played it yet, but there are more planets to visit than you have days left in your life.] "The most impressive simulation of an entire universe has now been created by a small team of 15 indie developers. The game "No Man's Sky" is probably the most complex and the largest game world ever created and it fits on a single DVD. Every player starts exploring on a randomly chosen planet in the games' universe. The player's starting coordinates are the variable that is put into the games' sophisticated, but still simple formulas. The result creates the whole visible game world in real time. It would be impossible to store all of the details using traditional methods. You would need entire data centers to store the data of the roughly 18 QUINTILLION true-to-scale planets, together with their unique ecosystems. It doesn't matter if it is a whole planet, a space ship, a tree, a rock or a single blade of grass--every detail is the fractal result of a mathematical formula. So, one of the most realistic and complex simulations of our cosmos emerges from nothing but mere mathematics!"
  6. No wonder Albert hasn't replied to my PM. He's probably lying in a corner of a dark room in the fetal position saying "all work and no play makes Al a dull boy" over and over again.
  7. How does one become a subscriber? I wouldn't know. :D

  8. Jambs and jellies.

  9. What are your feelings on boisterous putt sects? Is it time to put an end to these maniacal miniature golfers?

    1. jaybird3rd


      As long as everyone involved is a consenting adult, and as long as nobody gets hurt, I think people should be free to play golf however they choose.

    2. GoldLeader


      Jaybird is right...We all get a little self absorbed, a little righteousier than thou when out on the putt putt field...One thing leads to another, That Hole in One is feeling pretty good,  They play Judas Priest on the PA,...Drinks abound, clubs are in the air, balls go flying, clothes come off, and that's just the Shriners in front of you!

  10. This William Davis, MD video says that rapid processing of multiple simultaneous sensory inputs is good for your brain: youtu.be/vj-6LNoy5r0?t=3629 Now if you get caught playing a video game such as Ms. Pac-Man at work, you can say you were simply exercising your brain so you'll be an even better employee. I have links to some of his other videos and books here: https://www.randomterrain.com/favorite-quotes-health-and-safety.html
  11. If you're going to appear on TV, be sure to make a loud smacking noise with your mouth when it's time for you to talk.

  13. I didn't know until today that Civilization 6 is finally available for the PS4.

    1. Flojomojo


      Not sure I'd want to play that one way back from the screen on the couch, with a controller. The mobile port is excellent though, I assume Aspyr did this one as well?

      Don't know who made it. All I know is that I'm going to buy it as soon as the price drops. I play console games to get a break from the repetitive stress of a PC mouse.

  14. Fallout 4 just got an update on my PS4. Can't find anything about it online. Do they have an official blog?


    Update: I couldn't find anything because I searched for 1.44 instead of 1.33.

      You sure it wasn't just a key renewal. I still get those all the time on 360.

      I also just found out that Civilization 6 is available for the PS4! I'm getting it as soon as the price drops or my sister buys it from my wish list. If they would release an official version of Sim City for the PS4, my PS4 life would be complete.

      It said it was update version 1.33. I just figured out that I couldn't find anything because I searched for 1.44 instead of 1.33:

  16. Remember when YouTube was the place for people to post inconsequential home videos? On December 10, 2019, it looks like your videos will be deleted if they aren't making a ton of money for YouTube.




    I have many unlisted videos of my mother for family to watch on my channel at YouTube. I guess that means they're all going to be deleted, along with my channel.

      I'm not gonna get my panties in a bunch just yet...Maybe if a headline appears on the internet somewhere else by someone besides "Tyler Durden"...

      I wonder if Ronald knows what purple tastes and smells like?

The most common cause of damage is gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), also known as acid reflux. ... Frequent exposure to harmful stomach acid can cause scar tissue to form." https://www.healthline.com/health/esophageal-stricture-benign

      @Random Terrain I think you'll love this story about the symbiosis between wasps and figs. Enjoy! https://www.newyorker.com/tech/annals-of-technology/love-the-fig

    3. GoldLeader


      That is Amazing Flojo!  I'm off to eat some wasp mummies!

    4. Random Terrain

      Random Terrain

      Maybe that's why I don't like figs. I hate the flavor of wasps!

  23. Is that similar to what Visual batari Basic has? https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-vbb.html#playfielded https://www.randomterrain.com/atari-2600-memories-batari-basic-vbb.html#spriteed
