2016 A Year in Review

When a year draws to an end there are always two things that amaze me. One is looking back on how fast the year past, and two is looking back on how slowly the year past. I know it’s a… Continue Reading →

Christmas Memories: Gaming Before the Big Day

Usually when we get together as gamers and discuss Christmas memories it’s about what we found under the tree the day of. But, this year I wanted to take a different approach and talk about those gaming memories that lead… Continue Reading →

The Journey to MAME: Part 2 Addendum

Welcome to the Part 2 Addendum I created to address some of off topic, yet still relevant issues out of Part 2. The YouTube videos: First of all I need to apologize if it seemed like I was knocking The… Continue Reading →

The Journey to MAME: Part 2 – Iny Meany Miny No

In part 1 I covered getting my X-Arcade, buying the tank stick to go with it, and picking a computer (on-hand) to power the whole thing. It’s that last part that I ended with so I could pick it up… Continue Reading →

Starcade: Nostalgia in the Arcade

Nowadays, it’s not hard to find gaming based shows to watch. Just turn on YouTube and you can find everything from The Angry Video Game Nerd to Game Grumps, and even The Retro Leagues live recording of their weekly audio… Continue Reading →

Black Friday Memiors

There’s nothing like scoring that one item on Black Friday, that’s at just the right price and that you’ve waited so long for.  Too bad I don’t really know what’s that like. The closest I really came was in 2011… Continue Reading →

The Journey To MAME: Part One – We Gather Together

A few weeks back in my Columbus Day Weekend edition of 8-bit Fridays, I spoke of being on the hunt for a new arcade machine, and my unsuccessful attempt at buying one that weekend. I also closed by saying I… Continue Reading →

System Saturdays – The NES: Classic or Original?

Everyone is going apeshit crazy about the NES Classic right now, and they pretty much have been since it was first announced a few months back. For me though, it’s something that’s fallen under my personal radar, and been mentally… Continue Reading →

Trekking Through Games: The Away Missions – The Great DS9 vs Babylon 5 Affair

I was in the process of talking to a group of sci-fi model builders about whether they had considered building models of the Raza from Dark Matters, or The Lifeboat from Timeless, when the conversation lead into older sci-fi shows…. Continue Reading →

System Saturdays – You Know the XBOX, XBOX!

The XBox 360 is one of those systems that has gained legendary status, and even despite being replaced by the XBox One still has its teeth firmly dug in. Take a look online and see how many new releases there… Continue Reading →

System Saturdays – Getting to Know the Atari Lynx

One of my New Years resolutions for this year was to get myself an Atari Lynx, and round about February I did, thanks to Best Electronics. I’d pretty much been shopping for a Lynx since October of 2015 after I… Continue Reading →

8-bit Fridays – Columbus Day Weekend Edition

Well, all I can say for this Friday is that I’m a bit shocked at both how quickly and how easily this week passed by. Of course it’s also been a big planning week, and week of working on household… Continue Reading →

System Saturdays – Defending the Atari Jaguar

I’ll be the first to openly admit that I’ve been critical of the Atari Jaguar in some of my past posts. Although I never bashed the system or its games, I did have to question Atari’s 64-bit claims in a 16/32-bit… Continue Reading →

8-bit Fridays: The Diaries – September 30th, 2016

Sadly, after a long and stressful week this was another weekend that was not my own, or to translate not a lot plays this weekend. With that said I have another stressful week ahead of me next week, so I’m… Continue Reading →

8-bit Fridays: The Diaries – September 23, 2016
