Karnov and Breakthru are on their way… I got confirmation this evening. They were shipped like last Wednesday so it's possible they are resting in my PO Box. It's comforting to know that a 22 year old game can inspire memories. I first played Breakthru at a Pistol Pete's Pizza which was basically a Chuck […]

Insomnia

It's 1:00am. Sunday. I work in a few hours and unlike the poor grammar of the Japanese I "cannot feel asleep." Other Nintendo games have pleasant sleep scenes… like the ending to Super Mario Bros. 2. Despite the ringing in my ears from the three fans blowing in the room I can hear every noise […]

Money was a little bit loose this week so I splurged on a few titles from my favorite seller Pedro! (read my review of PedroGames.Com at http://www.videogamepriceguides.com/). The last time I played Street Fighter 2010 I was in the 9th grade… 18 years ago! At the time Street Fighter 2 was popular but this game […]

I won Karnov and Breakthru earlier this week for a penny each with reasonable shipping. Both are made by Dataeast which by the way (oh my!) Burgertime is well. I broke 50k, this afternoon on the forth level. Perhaps its a cheap victory because I was able to group and drop all of the hotdogs […]

My personal best at Burgertime still sucks but its better than what it was thanks to the 5th level.

I finally made it to the 5th level of Burgertime at the expense of ripping some hair out…

Golf Manual

I'e been working on the manual for Golf. It's almost finished!

Compared to others this Burgertime score sucks. But it's the highest I've gotten so far. The forth level always seems to get choppy for me. I'm pretty certain it's only because of all the stuff on the screen… several burger ingredients, the chef, the egg, the pickles, the hotdogs. It seems that when the programmers […]

Rygar

Rygar had a beautiful sunset. The Nintendo version (pictured above) was no where near as beautiful as the arcade version but it certainly gets the job done. The parallax scrolling is a nice effect and really adds a nice layer of depth to the game. It's amazing how something simple such as a stationary graphic […]

The label for Golf is now attached! I'll be giving it away at www.videogamepriceguides.com in the month of September. More details coming soon…!
