    Congratulations nosweargamer! Congratulations @nosweargamer on an awesome score! Blue Lightning was our 2nd Atari Lynx Squad Challenge. I was thrilled to see a good turnout for this games and all of you posted scores to be proud of. I hope everybody had a lot of fun checking out what the Atari Lynx had to offer. @kamakazi20012 messaged me to say that he has a copy of Blue Lightning on its way to him as we speak from @Video 61, and would like to continue this challenge in the Scoreboard! It's amazing to think that when Tetris was just making it onto Game Boy, Atari Lynx had this. Blue Lightning looks almost good enough to be a home console game. nosweargamer achieved the High Score for this Squad Challenge with a score of 170,800. @atarilbc took 2nd Place with 128,400 points, and @Atari Creep scored 106,300 points to take 3rd. @Control Issues and @RickR brought their best. Great game guys! Congrats to everyone who played! I'd like to encourage NSG to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and this Challenge will continue on! NOTE: Our normal High Score Squad Challenge will not be played this week, so that we may bring you THREE Squad Challenges running simultaneously for our Summer Pizza Festival starting this Friday!! We will be playing games for Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, and Sega Genesis. See you there! BLUE LIGHTNING FINAL STANDINGS 1 NO SWEAR GAMER 170,800 2 ATARILBC 128,400 3 ATARI CREEP 106,300 4 CONTROL ISSUES 84,600 5 RICKR 54,200

    Same deal here. Too busy for my own gaming-good. GOOD JOB NSG, and everyone else too. I'm going to keep my eye out for this cartridge on the Lynx -- it was a really fun game.

    HE IS MAKING THEM AVAILABLE! So after talking with him and making my video, Mike has decided he is going to make some of these available. I am not sure when exactly nor how many but I would keep an eye on his eBay store and or his twitter pages if you are interested in one. https://twitter.com/retrogameboyz https://t.co/vZW4Enum8o In the meantime, here are a few updated images!!! NOTE, That is a test print for the decal. He has professional high quality decals on the way for the controllers.

    Well...surprise surprise. Wait...SPOILER ALERT! If others reading this have not played the game before, and want to discover the game on their own, I would advise skipping this section. OK. I've worked my way from Welcome To Rapture all the way through to Proving Grounds. I have to say the story took an unexpected twist. I managed to save all the Little Sisters (earning an achievement!) and I'm now a Big Daddy roaming around. This game just went from twisted and weird to really awesome! OK. Enough talk. I'm going back to the game now.

    Nothing that interesting to offer this year but I do have some loose games for PS1 and Xbox that are in very nice condition. I have Return Fire for PlayStation and Steel Battalion for Xbox, which are kind of interesting and could be spicy in a future trade. Everything listed here is original from within the family and has been well cared for over the years. They are loose as unfortunately they were separated from their original clamshells during a move, but have spent their life in the protective CD sleeves you see in the pictures. No set prices, hoping for a cool trade or to save up enough money to get some software and lighting for Atari I/O's YouTube channel! I visited pricecharting.com today to get a grasp on what these games are worth in loose condition. I’d like to do a nice trade but am willing to sell everything in a bundle. The DVDs are mostly all “DISC 2” with Special Features or Bonus Features. I don’t place much of a value on these and am willing to let the complete DVD bundle go in a small trade. I’m looking to find a nice home for these. $150 takes it all, shipped. Or a cool trade 😀 Money will go toward the site and equipment for Atari I/O’s presence on YouTube. Trades I’m sure will be used in various ways over the years on the site and on our YouTube channel. Thanks for checking out my table! HERE'S MY WANT LIST: ANY new in the box Atari game of any kind, for any Atari system Atari 2600 VCS in good cosmetic condition (for photography purposes) ANY GAMES FOR: NES SNES N64 Sega Master System Sega Genesis *no sports titles please CONSOLES: Sega Master System console (original) Sega Genesis console (original) Sega Game Gear (original) N64 Console GameCube console Original Atari / Sears Tele-Games PONG console Thanks guys! 😉 ITEMS FOR SALE / TRADE PlayStation Xbox DVD Loose Discs THANK YOU FOR BROWSING 😀

    I'm pretty sure there's an achievement for harvesting them all, too. But it's probably one I'll never get. Just like in Fallout 3... I think there's an achievement for things like blowing up Megaton, but I could never do it. lol

    OMG you guys! I just got something spectacular. A really old 12" Sony TV. From the 1970's. It's got a wood case! It needs to be cleaned up. But boy-o...is there any better way to play Atari than a really old Trinitron? I'M PUMPED!

    Hey guys, if anybody here gets METV, tonight at 10 EST, 9 CST there's an episode of a show called "Collector's Call" in which a video game collector shows off his massive collection, which includes such rarities as a Sega Neptune prototype. Figured you guys would be interested.

    OK...coolest thing just happened. I seen a Big Daddy knocking on those holes those Little Sisters craw in when you rescue them. So...I nailed one with a level 2 hypnotize. The thing is following me around now protecting me. Way cool!! How long does it last? Kinda creepy moving around with an earthquake behind you, though.

    BioShock - Personal Progress

    OK...holy crap this game just got an increase in difficulty. I'm in the Fort Frolic area, trying to kill these three whoever to put their picture on some sculpture. I find my first Big Daddy with a Little Sister...except these are not the usual run-of-the-mill Big Daddies...these are called Elite Bouncers and are more quicker and more fierce than before. The first one knocked me around for a while until I figured out ways to avoid most of their attacks. I saved all three Little Sisters before I found all three of the guys I'm suppose to kill. Each one just appeared right after I would kill one. I'm use to hunting them down. So far I've not missed one yet. I tried playing FPS games on my 386 with just a keyboard...no mouse...with Wolfenstein 3D and just could not do it at all. The whole WASD thing is just not programmed into my left hand. When I got a mouse I tried that and could not get the coordination right at all. I tried using the arrow keys and that helped but, let's face it, back then those keyboards were not designed for playing games for hours on end. I destroyed my first keyboard playing Wolfenstein 3D from too much button mashing. There had to be a better way. So when I was in the market for a Sound Blaster sound card I found a package deal. It came with a Gravis GamePad and a copy of a game of which I forget what it was now. Once I got that gamepad...that was it...I refused to play games any other way. Although not too long ago I tried to play Medal of Honor on one of my gaming laptops using a keyboard and touchpad and it wasn't too bad but my hands started to get sore spots from the palms rubbing on the palm rest portion of the computer. I ended up finding a way to connect an original XBOX controller I wasn't using to that laptop through USB. I was using that until my gaming laptop's power supply died. I guess it just boils down to what comes natural to individual players. For me the game console controllers are more natural to me. I wouldn't be caught without one. I also don't get as much fatigue or pain using those. And as for Halo you ought to see the enhancements they did for the 360 Anniversary release. That game looks awesome! But, then again, I like Halo but not a huge fan of it. Heretic? Oh man...that's old school! That's back when ID/3D Realms was releasing all sorts of FPS games. Rise of the Triad, Hexen, Duke Nukem 3D, Shadow Warrior...man those were good times. But all those titles coming out is what burned me out on those kinds of games. I have to admit that Shadow Warrior (the original one) and Wolfenstein 3D were my favorites. I never did find Spear of Destiny (sequel to Wolfenstein 3D) anywhere but had a shareware demo of it. Fun times! Because of FPS games I can't play modern racing/driving games if the car is in front of me. I have to have the camera set either inside the car or just above the hood...or no car at all works best for me.

    I also am unable to play a game with a mouse & keyboard. Going back to the Doom, Dark Forces & Heretic days, I needed a joystick.

    Well, I took a break for dinner (which was difficult) but I have to say I can see why this game is a favorite among gamers...it even made Metal Jesus' top 10 list of favorite 360 games. I'm enjoying the story, enemies are not so bad at the moment, puzzles not too difficult to figure out. But, again, it doesn't reward the player very well or if you pick the wrong thing when you get the chance to upgrade/purchase something you're pretty much screwed. And more Rosies are roaming around more often now. Those orbs you can throw to make those things turn to your side are a joke. I have thrown countless orbs at them and they have not worked...yet. As far as current progress...I just collected distilled water and other items to make some sort of chemical to spray on some trees. I'm now on my way forward...hopefully. I still have one more child to save in Arcadia which I'm now hunting down. My favorite gun was the shotgun because I was finding ammo for it constantly. Now I'm about out and have not found any in this area without buying them...and money I ran out of buying pistol ammo for a back-up. I'm still enjoying the game but, dang, I thought Ark on XBOX One was unforgiving (which it is...you can get killed without warning and while in your home base by a roaming dinosaur) but this one doesn't give enough ammo for some of the basic weapons. I did pick up some kind of a flame thrower and equipped a wasp EVE. Even with all of the issues I'm having with ammo I'm still enjoying the game and I have to admit that it is starting to become a favorite on the 360...but Borderlands still takes the top. And I played FPS games on a PC back in the 386 days but not without my Gravis Gamepad. I simply couldn't do it with a keyboard. That drove me nuts. I'll stick with a game controller. I can at least map buttons sometimes to my liking. And since I have the game muted I'm not hearing the vending machines in this game. I keep it muted because of wife's TV so she can hear her programs. I do have subtitles turned on, though, so I can at least read the story.

    Oh, and like you guys, I never could take the "dark path" and harvest the little sisters.

    I played this series on the PC a long time ago. While I did like it, I got really frustrated (like you) at the lack of ammunition. And the "Circus of values" things -- I got so sick of that sound bite after a while. I think this is a game that really explains why I don't do "modern gaming" at all on PS4 or XBox One (or even PS3/360)...the PC versions of games totally kick butt in most cases with far superior controls. Even "Halo" (an XBOX game) is a lot more fun on the PC IMO just because the mouse/keyboard control system is so much more accurate and natural. Maybe it's just FPS games I guess.

    Made it through Neptune's Bounty (3rd area) and, again, I rescued all the Little Sisters there. But there was a fourth one not protecting a child (I think it was called "Rosie"). Caught me completely by surprise. And I've learned in that area just how quick the tables can turn. I also don't really like the camera aspect because as soon as I snap a picture of any enemies I want to start shooting and forget to change weapons. I'm also carrying more upgrades than I can equip. This game is unforgiving but not too bad. I'm now starting Smugglers' Hideout. Also, I did some research on BioShock 2 should anyone reading this post take interest in the series. I located the original launch trailer to BioShock 2. I think I might have to locate BioShock 2.
