    Wow, I'm impressed by your dedication! This is no draw, you've definitely earned the win! Has anyone figured out a pattern for the instant replays? I hardly saw any later on in the game, but maybe they don't trigger if you finish a level too quickly.

    IN PROGRESS Paused at 10,017,500 Apparently, the last level is 125. I had a breakthrough in my play strategy so I'm going to see how far I can get. At this point, I'm not really dying so it's all stamina and not making stupid mistakes. I have no idea how many extra lives I have as it only displays the first 6. I'm hoping my 31 year old console and PSU hold out while paused for the holiday. 😂 Here's a hastily set up vid of me crossing 10M. VID_20191128_074111108~3.mp4

    All Things Expanse

    December 13 Amazon Prime will stream the season 4 of one of my favorite shows "The Expanse". I watched the first season on Blu Ray, but watched season 2 and 3 as they came out on SyFy (who unceremoniously canceled the show). I thought I set up a discussion on the show and I may put some comments as I watch the new episodes. Oh, and there will be spoilers. I would recommend watching the show and I think it will become a sci fi classic in future years. The first season gets going quickly, but also builds a great background of about 200 years in the future. Season 2 kinda drags in the beginning but picks up in the end, and the third season is nearly perfect for every Sci Fi fan whether you are a Trekie or a Star Wars fan.

    Or…, was it made by the Japanese? The company say that their location was in Walnut, California. Impressive.

    Interesting. I never knew that the Japanese made that. Nice find. I hope that you are able to sell it then. It should be quite a collector's item.

    Write my name on my cartridges? Nope...never. It ruined them in my opinion. If I ever did that I probably wouldn't have received another game cartridge ever again. Mom said when I got my 5200 to take care of it...and to me that meant it was not a drawing pad nor were the games we got for it. So, no, I never put my name on them. I didn't even write scores on the back of most manuals set aside for such things.

    I'd have loved to have given that 360 a home, red ring or not. Especially with the box. If that 360 has HDMI port then you have the model where the RRoD issues was to be fixed. You shouldn't have been getting that from what plagued the original run of 360s. What you might do is shake it to see if you hear anything rattling around in it. It's possible that the spring that holds the flaps to the memory card and USB ports might have found a way inside it causing the problem. The black 360 controller you found actually goes to the 360 model I own. You have a 360 Premium edition, mine is just like that except all black called the Elite model. Your hard drive is most likely a 20 Gig as that was the smallest you could get at the time...and the only one for a while. Then came the 60, 120, and 250. We have XBOX Live Arcade to thank for the increase in disk drive sizes. I'm using a 20 GB and I barely have room for about 2 large games (about 5 GB per game) and a few smaller games. Even with all the problems it had originally the 360 has a LOT of great games besides Halo. Borderlands series, Forza, Sniper Elite V2, Farming Simulators, geez...I could go on and on. I still have my original XBOX as well that I still use quite often...it just depends on which game I'm in the mood to play. I just realized the date of this post. Is that XBOX still working? If it ever fails please don't toss it out...I'll gladly give it a home.

    What I'm Thankful For

    Had a terrific Thanksgiving day. Brought the "go-bag" in upstairs to one of the gaming areas of my nieces known as "The schoolroom". Nephew had to get a multi-tap outlet ...yada-de-ya. First cart he wanted to play was "Space Invaders" so I went to level "33" co-operative 2 player mode then progressed up through the variations from there til we got to invisible, wiggly barricades, with doubled & fast wiggly enemy fire. He's been getting into Looney Tunes so I brought "Taz" & had some good rounds of that. later in the evening he brought me a Spiderman PnP he found while cleaning the basement or something that needed the battery tray cleaned. So we used ""SCIENCE"" white vineger & q-tips away from all the food washing hands afterwards. had to steal batteries outta the xb360 controllers played some boardgames, food, movie theater (Joker) And now on to the portion we call "Thanks-feasting" next 3 days of leftovers more boardgames, videogames ping-pong, Foosball

    I just beat the main story line in Fallout 3 on the 360. Not a bad game at all and it had a neat story line. I just didn't care of the ending because I would have liked the option, without having to purchase a DLC, to explore areas of the map I didn't get to. I probably missed a LOT of side quests but the main story was interesting. Fawks was probably the most surprising character in the whole game although I originally shot at him at first mistaking him for a hostile enemy which I ended up having to reload a previous save. I have Fallout 4 on the XBOX One and was waiting to play this one before I started that one just in case they were both related some how.

    I'm not surprised by that. Given how the last season ended, I'd expect the show to be totally different. Pandora's box has been opened!

    Toyshock Virtual Pinball

    Here is an interesting find. In the vein of 1UP arcades, Toyshock is releasing a 3/4 scale virtual pinball games. It will play 12 Gottlieb tables with 3D effects to give it some depth. It looks like the backbox doesn't change but does have stereo speakers. It does have a plunger and the extra buttons are the "nudge" buttons. The playfield is a 24 inch LCD so I do not know how that would be to play. It currently lists on the Walmart site for pre orders at 399.96, so its pricepoint is much cheaper than other full sized machines.

    Toyshock Virtual Pinball

    I'm looking forward to your review. Depending on how many "AWESOME"'s it gets, I may have to get one too! I really like the Star Wars arcade machine you got recently. I'm keeping my eye out for that one, but haven't seen it yet at my local stores.

    I usually wait for the library to get the dvd or blu-ray and just do that. In fact, I did that for The Expanse seasons 1-3and also Star trek discovery season 1. The issue is, you have to wait and avoid spoilers.

    Well, after viewing the code, I found a server-side error that failed to load. I'm not sure if it is related or not because it doesn't appear to be a part of anything else the site uses. And when I clicked on the link that failed it did return with a "not found" error. When researching what that link did I was surprised to find that it is a direct link to Adobe for using web fonts which are added to the site when a browser "loads" this website. From what I learned in college, we never used Adobe for web fonts because it was unreliable. We were told to use what Google offers instead. Not sure if what I found is relevant or not but I thought it might help beat a path back to the cause of this issue. On a plus note, I didn't get the dangerous alert when I came back to the forums directly. It's only happening on the main portion. Might I suggest remaking the index.html page? That might delete the malware. If you change that you might fool the malware. But I would seriously consider moving away from WordPress for a main page. Instead I would create one using HTML 5 and CSS 3 without WordPress being involved at all. There are some free hosting sites, some with ads, some without. If that is an option then let me know and I will report back with what I know. I used a few free ones before and had good results with a few of them. There's also the option of replacing the main portion with a backup that is dated before all of this stuff happened if that has been done.

    Craigslist Finds

    Turtles in Time, if I'm not mistaken, has a SNES-ized version of Pizza Power from the Turtles album. I think it's that one. And you can't go wrong with SF II. I prefer the Genesis' SF II CE myself but that's just me. SNES is in great shape, too! Nice find.

    StormSurge's Extra Life Giveaway

    If anyone is interested in me playing horribly at 2600 games, here's the first three hours of my marathon: @Atari Creepwas a trooper & kept me company in the wee hours of the morning while I made my way through some COD: Modern Warfare campaign. @Control Issuesstopped by while I was playing some virtual golf. Thank you again for all of your support, both financially & with spreading the word. I will draw the order for the giveaway later today (hopefully).

    Here's my attempt. 3,879. Unfortunately it's emulated The good part is that I got my Sony Mavica FD camera working again. It wasn't wanting to read disks. Taking that thing apart was a nightmare as I didn't want to ruin it. Everything inside was layered like a sandwich. And seemed like a million micro screws. Wow. I just noticed I have an Atari I/O anniversary coming up. Has it been 4 years already?

    I like how you can speed up or slow down the paddle with the A or B buttons. The Game Boy port of Super Breakout would have been greatly improved if it had a similar feature. Score: 2079

    The almighty hamburger. A hot sandwich starting with a beef patty, topped with trimmings like lettuce, tomatoes, and cheese, and smothered with ketchup and mustard. A monetary staple for fast food drive-ins and a popular item to cook for some outdoor grillin'. It's also one of the easiest food items to cook where almost anything on it will compliment it. Almost. That is until you come across evil food. Hot dogs, eggs, and pickles are tired of being on the menu and have gone on strike! That is the formula it takes to have a little video game called BurgerTime. The object of the game is to guide a chef, named Peter Pepper, through various mazes. Each maze contains scattered ingredients that make up a hamburger which has to be assembled on plates at the bottom of the mazes. Making hamburgers should be easy, right? Wrong. To add salt to a wound our chef is constantly being hunted down by food whose only goal is to stop chef from completing his mission. The only weapon at your disposal is the almost empty pepper shaker that was grabbed at the last minute. For a simple sounding concept BurgerTime is anything but simple. One false move or turn will have our chef meet his demise instantly. And no matter which way our chef goes the food will not be far behind. Our chef gets very little no time to stop and get a heading on where everything is. Even stopping for a split second will end up with him being cornered with no where to run. Hit them with pepper and he can slide by. Catch one on a hamburger part when you make it fall will take that evil food with it for a long ride. Want an egg on your burger? Catch one between all the layers of the burger and it becomes part of the burger. Pick up the desserts and side items that pop up to gain extra pepper. Originally developed by Data East and released in North America by Bally/MIDWAY BurgerTime is one of those games that's a bit of an odd-ball. Out of all the video games made there hasn't been another game that has tried to imitate or use a similar formula that makes BurgerTime tick. My Arcade managed to cram all that into a miniature arcade cabinet that's as much fun to play as it is to look at. But is it any good? On the outside BurgerTime's cabinet contains artwork that is inspired by the original but not 100% accurate. For whatever reason the chef on the sides has an "H" on his hat where as the original chef on the real deal has a "P" for Peter Pepper. I'm not quite sure what the "H" is all about unless his name is Hamburger Harry. Maybe Peter got fired and Harry took his place? Your guess is as good as mine. At least all of the artwork fits together nicely. All of these My Arcade Micro Players made to date remind me of the NES standard controllers with a removable joystick handle. With that you have a D-Pad/joystick combo that tries to act as a four-way joystick from the arcades. The two smaller buttons are to Start and Reset the game. The Start button doubles as a pause button for times when you need a break. For some odd reason there are two pepper buttons. Well, should one button fail there is a back-up. Even though it uses the NES version of BurgerTime it's still a blast to play but BurgerTime on this unit is very unforgiving and very fast paced. Before you know it food will be on top of you in the blink of an eye. I have not managed to see if all the mazes from the arcade are here but I did manage to see five of them. Getting that far was not an easy task at all. Concentration is definitely the key to getting anywhere in this game. You can sometimes trick enemies to go one way while you take off in another direction. But not always. BurgerTime has its place in video game history as one of the most original and iconic designs of all time. No matter how unforgiving this game gets its addictive and hard to put down. It is for me anyway. We hear more about Pac-Man, Dig Dug, Centipede, Frogger, and other popular games from the same era than we hear about BurgerTime. And these attractable micro arcades I have found hard to resist. My only wish is that they would have used actual arcade ROMs. BurgerTime takes its place next to my other micro arcades where it will be enjoyed time and time again. Not a bad way to preserve some of the arcade games my generation grew up with.
