My project today was to repair a six switch 2600, which had a broken joystick port (pin 5 missing) and player 1 difficulty switch. So, I "borrowed" those parts from a broken 4-port board. It all works perfectly now, and the next step will be to add a composite mod. Tools used were a push-button suction desoldering iron and a normal soldering iron.
After a few non-gaming days & a bit of clean-up, I have completed my feature video on Greg Sakundiak and his perfect Pac-Man arcade run. This video posed some unique challenges for me as I usually edit highlight/shoutout videos for my show. Nonetheless, this was a lot of fun to create. Enjoy!
Starting this Tuesday night at 9:30pm ET, I will be joining Michael Sroka of Settle It On The Screen! The show will be part recap of the latest episode of Retro With Marco (which will precede the new show) and part discussion about various retrogaming topics. It will be unscripted and a departure from my own show format.
Michael and I have talked about collaborating and we're looking forward to our new venture.
So we hope you will tune in this Tuesday night at 9pm ET for Episode 34 of Retro With Marco...
Followed by a new episode of Settle It On The Screen at 9:30pm ET...
RIP - ANTHONY JAMES - He was awesome as a spooky chauffeur in Burnt Offerings (1976) ! Always a great as a menacing or sleazy character in movies and TV shows! One of those actors that just helped everyone else shine.
