    Harry Potter vs Freddy Krueger ?

    Freddy would get his butt whipped...if I know Watson. If she's got the balls to punch Malfoy then Krueger doesn't stand a chance.

    My workplace was getting rid of that TV last year (until recently they still did training videos on VHS), so they let me have it before they threw it away. I had a CRT TV already, but no VCR. (Also, this one has composite input.) I picked up a bunch of VHS tapes at thrift stores. (They are so cheap now!) Here are some of them. I still need to watch a few of these... I certainly have the time right now.

    Whoa! A TV/VCR combo!! I haven't seen one of those in a looong time. I had to repair the VCR in one of those once for my cousin. The all black version of the one in that picture. Pain in the butt to get to but I fixed it for them. I guess one of their kids decided the VCR was hungry and fed it a bunch of toy plastic silverware...like those from a tea set or something. It didn't damage anything but took forever to get those all out. I found a single pack of salt, too. That one would not have been good. Nice to see one of these still functioning.

    @RadioPoultry, it looks like you could record your gameplay on VHS. I think that makes you the automatic winner.

    Squad Challenge - Go Fish! (Atari 2600)

    So you're saying that if George Plimpton were to compare the Atari 2600 fish game with Intellivision® Shark! Shark!, he'd think you'd agree that Intellivision® Shark! Shark! plays like the real thing?

    I think that sad story has been repeated millions of times by other kids in every place on Earth. It's called the "stupid tax". The price we pay for the stupid things we do. Hopefully, we all learn from these mistakes the first time they happen!

    Squad Challenge - Go Fish! (Atari 2600)

    This game is excellent, but it doesn't quite live up to Shark Shark. Mostly because it starts too slow. The real fun and points start to rack up only when your fish is bigger, and that takes a while. It's really fun though, and thank you for doing this challenge! It's so awesome to try new games.

    Squad Challenge - Go Fish! (Atari 2600)

    Congratulations RickR! Congratulations @RickR! What a fantastic score! I hope this was a fun challenge, we don't often get to play homebrew games in Squad Challenge, I think that's something we can do move of in the future. Shark! Shark! was always one of my favorite games on Intellivision and it was interesting to see a Shark! Shark! inspired homebrew hit the Atari 2600. A simple but fun concept. Thanks everyone for turning out to play a homebrew Squad Challenge. How do you think Go Fish! compares to other homebrew games on the Atari 2600? Does it live up to the fun of Shark! Shark! on the Intellivision? @RickR posted an impressive score of 2,649 points! The legendary @TrekMD ranked 2nd on the leaderboard with 1,717 points, and @RadioPoultry was right behind him with 1,488 points. @chas10e rounds things out with a solid showing of 831 points. Congrats to RickR for his top ranking and to everyone who jumped in this squad challenge and shared a score! I'd like to encourage RickR to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on! NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be a special challenge celebrating National Pac-Man Day. Be there!

    Happy April! It's always a sunshine day when the Pie Factory Podcast brings you a new episode! This time, kick back with a couple of relaxing video games from the '80s, following Jim and Sean through their adventures. (Note: even though we at least twice mentioned the date we recorded this episode, we know that it's easy to forget or not even notice, but...this episode was recorded before the stay-at-home orders were issued! We assure you we practice social distancing. Then again, it's not much of a change of pace for either of us, given our social skills.) https://www.fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode109.mp3

    I've really been into Clue lately. My brother got me this board game for Christmas a few months ago. The only problem is trying to find a time when my family actually wants to play it with me.

    WINNER: Justin Xevious Atari 7800 March 30, 2020 ROUND 1: @RadioPoultry ROUND 2: @Justin ROUND 3: @Justin RadioPoultry is a SERIOUS contender and this was a great game to play! He's a gentleman and a great guy to play against. The Atari 7800 really shines with Xevious as @kamakazi20012 was just saying, it feels like legit arcade action with a ton of stuff moving around the screen and zero slowdown. This match was particularly fun because Radio and I both got farther in Xevious than either of us ever had. Radio always posts incredible scores, when I sat down to play this morning I thought I was done for. I barely squeaked by, and RadioPoultry and I had a very close game. Hope to play again!

    Game Development Guide

    You're welcome but I won't be teaching programming this time around. What I'm after is those interested in making video games to have the basic knowledge and understanding of what it takes to make a game. I'm also going to be expressing what making a game should be all about. I don't want people coming in full force and making games just to make money. Money should never be the reason behind making games. Those that do that don't and never will care about the video game community and we don't want that. I want people that want to make a game because of their passion for video games and the machines whether it be one or many. If people coming here because they want to make a game but they haven't got a clue on where to begin then I hope this guide will point them in the right direction to having all of their ducks in a row. It is soo much easier to come to the programming stage after spending time putting together everything conceptual on paper from the story to character designs to world appearances that are to be put in the game. There is a reason to my madness for doing it this way that will all come together in the end.

    Here's the other one. This one is the sole reason why I wanted a LaserDisc player. Wal-Mart in Branson, Missouri had a Pioneer LD setup and playing a demo disc. This clip from The Mind's Eye was playing when I discovered the setup in the store one visit my Mother and I made. I repeated that clip about 4 times on the machine. Something about was just mesmerizing to me. I loved the music especially and I thought the animation did a very good job of getting the story across without any dialog. See what you think? On a side note, I had this on Radio Shack's version of the Mind's Eye on VHS. I never got the LD or the LD version of the Mind's Eye which I wish I could find now that I have a LD player. I absolutely LOVE the music in The Mind's Eye and Beyond The Mind's Eye videos. I would sometimes just put these in to go to sleep on.

    They are from the Basil Rathbone/Nigel Bruce series from the 30s and 40s (targeted for adults). I actually had "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes" on DVD already, but I totally forgot until I started watching it. For one of the later films in the series, "The House of Fear" was pretty good! There was one other tape in the series I thought I bought not in the photo, but I think it turned out to have "Destination Tokyo" inside the case instead. Also, that reminds me, I picked up "The Great Mouse Detective", too. That one is targeted for kids. I hadn't seen it before, but I enjoyed that one too.

    I grew up with my Atari 7800 hooked up to one of these! It was a Samsung TV/VCR combo, and yes I recorded gameplay occasionally. I also had my TurboGrafx-16 and Genesis hooked up to it. Somewhere I still have those tapes, I'll have to find them.

    Squad Challenge - Go Fish! (Atari 2600)

    Congets @RickR ! I hadn't played many INTV games, never played "Shark shark" so I can't compare the two. Yeah "Go Fish" seemed to start slow waiting in the weeds for some morsel to swim by last night I had troubles with the electric eels and didn't improve my score 😬 just when I thought things were going good too Oh well ... there's always the next squad challenge

    RE: My Tragic C64 incident

    RE: Commodore 64. Once (I learned a lesson 😎) back in the early days, my first C64, the classic breadbox model, I loved it so, I even painted the case a cool shiny BLACK with spray paint. NOTE: Image show is not mine and included for descriptive purposes only. Sadly, I had more balls than knowledge and was always tinkering, wanting to see the guts of a machine etc. Do you know where this is going? I disassembled the machine BUT, and I think this was my biggest mistake in all this, with the cover and shielding OFF for some reason I still had it plugged in and turned on and poking around looking at the chips with screwdriver in hand I explored the guts noting numbers and labels when suddenly I dropped my tool (I MEAN MY SCREWDRIVER!) and there was a pop sound followed with a spark. It all happened so fast, I do not recall seeing any obvious damage but....well after putting everything back together, at first I was happy to see the machine start up and at first thought eh, everything fine but.....nope. Turns out everything I loaded, whether form cassette or disk just ran at the wrong speed, I don't recall if it was super sped up or super slow, IF I had to pick one I am pretty sure it was super slow, as if every process went from normal to the speed of a snail crawling through molasses, it seemed to work normally otherwise from what I recall but nothing was playable or usable after that. Oh man I was soooo upset and mad at myself. Such things were rare commodities for me at that young age and I was never going to get a replacement that's for sure, I had gotten it used as a hand me down. I learned a valuable lesson that day I can tell you. Oh I still tinkered, took things apart and explored every electronic item I would be lucky enough to get, MOST reassembled and working again successfully. Anyway, there was a time I got ONE hell of a shock that I think made my heart possibly stop temporarily while working at the back of a 26' cabinet RCA CRT Television but that's another story 😛 Note mine (it's long gone 😢) but similar

    Fight! Fight! Fight!! 😄 Food Fight should be seen as a 7800 exclusive. I don't think it was on any other game console and it is a blast to play. I looks good with the vibrant colors and sounds really good considering it is only using TIA for the sounds. Imagine if that much work and effort in the sound and music department went into TIA on the 2600 games. Nice 2-player battle, Justin and Creeper! Sounds like you guys had fun even if you have a technical issue.

    Samus Ragequits Metroid Vid

    I completely agree with this. It works, but it makes the game a touch more frustrating than it needs to be. Maybe it's just me and my limited amount of time to play games, but I can't stand when it takes a lot of trial and error just to progress. A challenge is fine, but I don't have a lot of time to waste.

    I remember taking a trip to Portland because my dad had some kind of business meeting in the downtown area, and my brother and I walked over to the local Radio Shack, and they had that video playing. I remember seeing that very clip! I kept watching, hoping it would repeat so I could that one with the bird and fish again, but the video was longer than expected. That one really stuck with me.

    Thanks to Corona I finally have time to sit down and play Metroid Other M. And I finally made it past the first small boss which I couldn't figure out before. Samus is as awesome as ever...I'll get back to you guys once I figure out the rest of the game LOL.
