Well, since the games span more than one room around here, We'll throw another vid up here with a few more machines. This video showcases our Klax, Street Fighter II, A.P.B. (now Witchboard's) and NFL BLitz 2000 machines. The Power Glove brought his little cousin Austin over to beta test 'em. This video was shot in low light on my still missing Casio Exilim. Oh yeah, if anyone happens to find it could you please return it? It's tough to do your reviews when your camera has been lost/stolen/misplaced/who the hell knows. As always, thanks for coming by and I'd love to hear your feedback in the forums! Have a great weekend- we'll be out participating in the 24HR video race!
Marble Madness Maniac!
This guy has truly become a champion at Marble Madness, one of the tougher games of our time, that uses a trackball.
I'll let the following video speak for itself. I hope you're also enjoying a tall PBR.
The Power Team
Edlich and I are teaming up to bring you the latest and oldest gaming updates available. Between the two of us and a few other team mates we will have loads of news coming at you. Any one want to donate a PS3 and/or a Wii or any console for that matter for testing purposes? Edlich even has a new prototype that we will be reviewing.
A few of the classics to get us started.
Heres a look at just a few of my machines, to get us started off. Keep in mind this is just one room! I'm really putting a lot of effort toward getting console stuff organized-staring down the barrel of a huge move, with everything 'scattered, smothered & covered'. Featured in this video are our Karate Champ, Moon Patrol, Cyberball, NARC, Xevious, Galaga & the cleanest Pole Position you may ever see still functioning- with its original computer from 1980.
For the High Scores Tourney, I've updated the full list of current games that we can compete in at our gameroom in the classic gaming section of the forums.
Next week: Our retrogaming feature will take a console turn & we'll give a full review of the FC micro, a concept from Ben Heckendorn, the king of all console mods. Yeah, we got one. Imagine: Slugging your old 8-bit NES cartridges into a handheld unit about the size of a PSP! Core, just core. No wait- classic too. I can take Marble Madness & Bionic Commando on the go? Sheeeeit. And- the PowerGlove has been researching another pearl of an add-on for this as well! Stay tuned- you wont want to miss this.
I want you to take all of this, the excruciating 8-bitness of it all, and put it inside your TV remote!!
We'll show you next week! If U.P.S. shows up. ( and they usually do.)
As always, feel free to discuss any of our articles in the forums. Cheers & dark beers,
A place for my stuff.
I'm still running around helping other staff writers and trying to stay on schedule, but when we launch, this is where I'ma keep my stash.
Incidentally, I turned on the 2600 the other day and it spit this out. What does that mean? Hopefully the launch goes well. ((shudder))
We shall soon see.
Nothing Star Trek here (though there is here:http://www.geocities.jp/ikenohata2005/papermodel2-e.html)
This section will detail the ways and means that standard online paper craft models can be bling'd out !
What do I mean ?
The standard and quite wonderful 5.5" high arcade models can be found here: http://wayoftherodent.com/gd101/bs_paperarcade.htm
With extra models here: http://wayoftherodent.com/pa/pa_staff.htm
But, with careful use of house siding, ex bathroom formica or simply gluing strengthener card to a printout, the models can become much more robust.
Add a few electronics (which i'll detail) and you can get.........
