  1. I'm definitely down to get one when they come out because they look flippin' amazing, but man do I wish they would have gone with AA batteries instead of an internal rechargable battery for the power source. Sourcing replacement rchargable battery packs is kind of the bane of handheld system collecting over the long term.
  2. Another relatively slow week around here as I continue to be preoccupied with annoying real life crud and haven't had much time for gaming, but I did manage to get in some Doom II playtime and the misses started a game of Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon on the Switch.

  6. Well fudge! I was all set to go buy The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening for the Nintendo Switch in the morning and then my Switch's right Joy-Con started malfunctioning... again. Back to Nintendo for repair it goes... again. While I wait for it to be fixed so I can play Switch games once more, here's a couple recent Genesis pickups.

  9. Would you look at this completely archaic yet strangely aesthetically pleasing tower of plastic! I mean, just look at it. This is how DLC worked back in the 90's

  11. I sure am super late. A muddled mix of life problems and depression kinda sapped my enthusiasm for gaming and just about everything else this past week, but thank you for remembering me. Here's my (very late) household times for the week. I'll try my very best to not be late next week!

  12. It was the usual gaming routine around here this past week, with a bit of Switch time then a few Sega Genesis games played with the misses. This week we ended up spending most of our gaming time playing some new Genesis pickups that I scored on eBay recently.

  14. It's been a while since I shared any video game pickups, so here's some recent additions to my Sega Genesis library.
  15. I was away at a convention all weekend and have been pretty wiped out since I got back last night, so no big writeup post or picture this week, but here's my household's times for the week. Ineligible Doom (PC-DOS, played on Nintendo Switch) - 25 minutes Doom (Sony PlayStation)- 22 minutes Pressure Cooker (Atari 2600) - 89 minutes Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega Genesis, played on Genesis 6-Pak) - 245 minutes Thunder Force III (Sega Genesis) - 136 minutes Nintendo Switch Horizon Chase Turbo - 35 minutes Total Video Game Play Time This Week 552 minutes (9 hours 12 minutes) [35 minutes eligible] Individual System Play Times This Week Sega Genesis: 381 minutes Atari 2600: 89 minutes Nintendo Switch: 35 minutes PC-DOS: 25 minutes Sony PlayStation: 22 minutes

  17. Picked up a small handful of Atari 2600 games today as I continue rebuilding my former collection. Gorf and Kung-Fu Master are both easily in my Top 20 favorite games on the system.
  18. I've always liked Pressure Cooker, but I think my brain is just not wired right to play this game well. Pressure Cooker (Game 1, B/B Difficulty): 21,395

  21. Another world, another time, in the age of wonder. A thousand years ago, this land was green and good - until the Crystal cracked.

      If they had taken better care of their crystal, all that chaos would have been avoided.

      Yeah my first time hearing that quote was also the Crystal Method.  I looked it up because it was kind of hard to understand, so at least I also found out where it came from.

       

      Speaking of the Dark Crystal, here are the movie sins.

       

  22. I recently picked up some pretty neat stuff for the Nintendo Switch! I got a copy of Atari Flashback Classics and a Flip Grip to play all the classic vertical screen games on the Atari & Namco compilations. I was also super duper stoked to snag a nice looking copy of Scooby-Doo Mystery for the Sega Genesis for $15 the other day. I really loved this game as a kid but wasn't down to pay the $35+ that most people seem to want for it these days, so I just waited patiently until a good deal eventually came along and this week it finally happened.
  23. I had to go with the classic Atari style, but Coleco is a close second for me. Those off white shells really stand out and look super neat to me.
  24. It was a somewhat slow but nice week for gaming around here this past week. A little Doom 3, a few new Atari games to play. Good stuff! Ineligible (All Atari 2600) Gremlins - 37 minutes Frankenstein's Monster - 61 minutes Millipede Trak-Ball - 15 minutes Missile Command Trak-Ball - 30 minutes Shooting Arcade - 109 minutes Solar Fox - 35 minutes Nintendo Switch Doom 3 - 580 minutes Total Video Game Play Time This Week 867 minutes (14 hours 27 minutes) [580 minutes eligible] Individual System Play Times This Week Nintendo Switch: 580 minutes Atari 2600: 287 minutes The primary game that kept me occupied this past week was Doom 3 on the Switch. I had beaten the main game two weeks ago and spent the last week playing through the Resurrection of Evil and Lost Mission expansions, both of which were excellent though I definitely liked Lost Mission the best of the two. I wrapped up the two expansions on Saturday and I'm actually kinda sad they're over, I really enjoyed everything Doom 3 had to offer and I know I'll be back to play it again in the years to come. Other than Doom 3 the rest of the games played around here this past week were Atari 2600 games, a couple of which we just got physical copies and the rest were played off the Harmony Encore cartridge. For the physical games both my wife and I played the rather rare horror themed titles Frankenstein's Monster and Gremlins. Of the two Frankenstein's Monster was the big hit, and we both played it a good dozen or so times trying to beat it but neither of us were able to succeed yet. Frankenstein's Monster is definitely a fantastic game that's worth the somewhat high price tag. Gremlins... not so much. Don't get me wrong, Gremlins isn't a bad game, it's just not a $30 game in terms of gameplay or uniqueness. If you can find a copy for $10 or so I'd say go for it, but don't pay full price for this one. For the Atari games that were played off the Harmony cart this past week, both the trak-ball hacks of Millipede and Missile Command were fantastic and definitely games I need to buy physical copies of from the AtariAge store and the light gun game Shooting Arcade is one that I absolutely need to get a repro made of. Between the two Atari 2600 light gun games, the Shooting Arcade prototype and Sentinel, Shooting Arcade is by far the better of the two and is still quite a bit of fun to play today. Lastly for the week, I had a great time playing Solar Fox for the Atari 2600 High Score Club. I had always heard that it was a unique and really fun game but had never played it before, and by golly it sure was both of those things! I don't think I'm terribly good at Solar Fox so I doubt I'll do very well in the HSC this round, but it's still an awful lot of fun to play. Well, I think that about wraps up everything for this week, so until next time—and as always—best wishes and happy gaming to you and yours!
