    New (to me) Car

    When I was out of town for the holidays, I left my car parked with my soon to be ex-wife at the house. Living downtown now, I can't leave it in the same space for more than a day or two. I figure, I still own (and pay for) the driveway, right? She drove it and parked it overnight at a Christmas party where it got sideswiped. The driver didn't leave a note so I had to make a claim under insurance. If it were a normal car, it would've been a fix of about $4,000, but because it was an EV (a LEAF) there are special battery handling requirements that made it a total loss. I was shocked, frankly. So I went a month without a car. I live close to work and bike a lot so it wasn't horrible but getting across town on transit or out to LA or Orange County was a pain. And then there's the rain. So last weekend, after 8 years of driving a zero emission vehicle, I returned to the dark side of fossil fuel with this gently used MINI Cooper S 4-door. The MINI has 189HP and was the closest thing I could find with the zippiness and immediacy of an EV. I will really have to watch my speed though as I keep blowing past 80 without feeling it. They actually have a "speed warning" that you can set to your MPH of choice. It's currently on 90. 😂😂😂 Anyway, a week in and I'm really loving it. It's decidedly retro with chrome toggle switches everywhere and bonnet stripes. It has super tight handling and is a dream on the freeway. It might be too much fun, really. Aside from the red, it's not exactly a midlife crisis car but it's as close as I am likely to get.

    New Gaming Rig

    I finally got a TV stand for my new place and hooked up some of my favorite consoles: a PS4 Pro, AVS, Saturn, Jaguar and 2600. I'm running the classic consoles through a RetroTINK to a 49" Samsung 4K HDR TV. It looks amazing! I did have my 7800 hooked up but the RetroTINK and the LHE mod don't seem to get along too well. After about 20 minutes, I started getting really weird interference. The LHE mod is temperamental so I'm going to try a simple modded 7800 eventually. Anyway, here are a few pictures. The screenshots are from my phone and do not do the picture justice. I also wanted to show my attempt at cable management to get everything off the floor. Because this TV stand has tall legs, it looked really messy at first. I even grabbed a wooden box for the power strips and bricks.

    7800 RS Baseball is awful. Just to be clear. I do love 7800 One on One Basketball however.

    I finally got a TG-16!

    Some of the games I would be after, namely Konami titles, are only on the PC Engine. But either one. I wouldn't be picky. Lol. They are just so expensive though.

    I finally got a TG-16!

    Bear in mind the Turbo EverDrive works on TurboGrafx-16 AND PC Engine systems, allowing you to flip between regions and play all games. There are also card adapters available to play PC Engine HuCards on TurboGrafx-16 systems and vice versa. Collect your passion and do what you think is best for you 😎

    Squad Challenge - Centipede (Atari 5200)

    Great take Rick, I never knew that. Almost 20 years ago when this website had a store, one of the items that never sold was RealSports Baseball for Atari 7800. For whatever reason it had a bad rap. I thought it was 5200 RealSports Baseball with stepped up graphics and gameplay, so if the 7800 version wasn't great the 5200 version wouldn't be either. I never gave sports games enough play, or the 5200 for that matter, but I'll have to pull that game out and give it another try. Your recommendation goes a long way around here. Thanks!

    You missed Gradius II and Salamander for the PC Engine. There's also Twinbee.

    A view of the RickR sanctum

    A day in the life of RickR: I spent some time today during the Super Bowl on a little project in my garage. I decided to mount my garage TV on a wall mount so I could reclaim the workbench space. Indeed, it seems to have returned 20% of the bench top. I think it turned out really nice. The mount came from Harbor Freight, and was only $10! I had to rearrange the stuff on the wall a bit, but that's just part of the fun. I use this TV to watch over-the-air channels while exercising, football on weekends, and a lot of times for gaming (either repairing or testing consoles, or playing systems I've pulled out of the attic).

    Yes I have, that's what Atari Cup Tournament is. We'll be playing in teams: Seattle Super Marios, Oakland Star Raiders, Washington Warlords, Detroit Defender, etc. each with their own individual private Clubs in the forums. It's been sitting here ready to go but we need a few more people to join to make it viable. Maybe later in the year. Right now I want to get High Score Squad sizzling again and Wednesday Night Atari Chat too. Lots of fun things to come! What Atari 5200 games do you have?

    NSG Giveaways!

    Imho, the 2014 Robocop has an unfair reputation and is actually a pretty good movie with some great actors involved. I'm hoping to give someone else a chance to appreciate it by giving away a sealed DVD copy of it. For a chance to win it, follow the instructions in the video by Friday at 11:59 pm EST
