  1. 17223 Bonus: 8266 Pretty good for my 2nd game of the evening! I hope I have more time to make more attempts!
  2. 10-0 - 4:42.9 Bonus: three of a kind (4's) w/ 9 2 kickers My only "tip" on this one after legit playing it the first time is to never let the computer get the ball. If they get it, I never figured out how to take it away from it
  3. This is cool that I've had the cartridges for everything so far this season (except Venture). I remember liking this one a lot when I was a kid. I've not played it in a while, but hoping it still holds up from what I remember!
  4. Internal Dialog: Let's see how I'm doing in the standings. Wait... did I submit anything? Crap! (runs to the Atari to get something in the last hour!) Millipede: 87479 Wish I had more time on this one. There's A LOT of stuff happening in this game and too frantic to figure it out on the fly. DK Jr. bonus: 11600 Great call, Vocelli! This was surprisingly addicting to essentially have a mini speed run on this. I hit the reset button A LOT in a short amount of time and fairly certain I got about as fast as you can get on this one without reading the forum thread.
  5. Venture: 11700 Berzerk: 4560 Venture commentary: I REALLY dislike that you can't get points from shooting stuff until after you collect the item in the room. Berzerk commentary: Ok... bear with me here and I promise this is probably funny to you! So, I've always pronounced the game as "buh-zerk" and never gave much thought ever to writing the word out in any other aspect of my life. With that in mind, I could've sworn it's normally spelled "Bezerk" based on how I say it. Trying to find the rom in Stella with no results for "bez" was like "huh... how do I not have this?", only to find out the game is called Berzerk. Then as I typed out Berzerk here at the start of my post, I noticed the underline indicating I have a spelling error! Then I'm like "well... is the word actually spelled 'bezerk' on how I've always pronounced it!?". Then I google/dictionary it to find out the REAL spelling of the actual word is "berserk" !? !? !? I listened to it pronounced several times. It's going to take me a LONG time to correct this with my speech and spelling out the real word when it comes up! So, damn you whoever came up with this game name 40 years ago and taught me wrong all of these years! Other commentary: I'm going to try to personally track the "Two favorites, two surprises, two hates" thing this season as I go along. Venture is currently on my hate list. Berzerk is on the favorites... for now (won't be tough to knock it off).
  6. 123110 Sorry about missing last week. Think that's the first round I've missed in either the 2600 or 7800 HSC since I started participating in 2017. Stuff just got away from me.
  7. In my particular case, I'm pretty good at selling my duplicates and extras ASAP, which doesn't help for Secret Santa time. My 2 years with Secret Santa, I buy all the gifts "minty fresh" from local game stores or online, and hope that I'm on point with the info provided and not buying duplicates. I can definitely appreciate when my recipient can give A LOT of detail about what they want, especially since I know it's basically impossible for my family to shop for me and know it's complicated to worry about repros and all that stuff.
  8. Finally had a chance to get a game in. I know I've done way better before, but best I got for now. Will see if I have time for another before the deadline. 18280
  9. Sonic shot glass! You gotta drink fast! 😆 That was a great haul of stuff (that metal sign is awesome!). @CaptainBreakout - very nice to send the bonus gift, as well! Really cool! And of course, thanks for making the video! Good stuff!
  10. @SoulBlazer, what does the other side of those Steam and PS Store cards say... 😂 Nice haul!
  11. @Isaiah Austin awww yeaaaah! Atari and Sega! The ultimate combo! Good stuff!
  12. Thanks so much to everyone who joined me this evening! It was a lot of fun! And of course, thank you so much Santa! I'm very happy with the loot! The shirt and trivia will be put to immediate use on my stream, in fact one question was used right as it was unboxed! 😁 Text version of the loot: A nice greeting card Storm Trooper and Boba Fett pencil topper (and eraser maybe? Probably won't use it as an eraser ) Movie Quiz trivia cards Rebooteroids for the Atari Jaguar (sorry Santa, I'll try to track down a Jaguar so I can play this! One of a the few systems I don't own 😂) A copy of Starcastle for the 2600 from AtariAge (CIB with manual, poster, and a cutout arcade cabinet display!) An awesome PlayStation t-shirt Condensed version of the live video (aka a "Highlight"), since the full stream will disappear in 14 days: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/837892279 Photos for your viewing pleasure:
