    πŸ“° Google paid $58.1 million for the Atari building at 1272 Borregas Ave. This building was home to 2600 games development and all the zany things that went on there. The Mercury News has a nice article on this which quotes Atari I/O: https://www.mercurynews.com/2019/07/01/google-grabs-an-early-atari-building-in-north-sunnyvale-deals-widen/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

    My son gave me a gift of NES "Top Gun" yesterday. My goal is to land the plane on the carrier. I failed a few times, but now I've read the manual. I won't let you down this time, Goose.

    T.G.I.F.! Here's a new favorite of mine. White Water! for Intellivision from 1983 by Imagic. It's also compatible with my Sears Super Video Arcade. This game has two different modes. In the first mode you shoot the rapids and race to the finish line without losing your men. It's sort of like bumper boats. In the second mode you steer towards a white sandy shore then run into the forest where you play the riches ritual against one of the natives. You take turns capturing flags, after the final flag is caught you each race for a golden urn. After picking up three urns you have a chance at a valuable treasure chest. But you must play by the rules and alternate capturing flags or the Big Kahuna will become angry and throw tomahawks at you. I'll record some gameplay over the weekend so you can see more of this awesome game. 🏞️

    I've finally thought of another topic worthy of a blog post. Not gaming or nostalgia related this time, but hopefully interesting nonetheless. Now I just need to write it. πŸ™„

    Here's a great title for #cibsunday in terms of gameplay and packaging. Control the mother kangaroo by hopping over platforms and climbing ladders to save her baby while avoiding apple throwing monkeys. I played this in arcades as a kid and really enjoyed it although I didn't get very far. It was one of those games with so many different sounds, bright colors, and lots of things going on at once. This 2600 port does a really good job of delivering the same sort of action and looks pretty good, I think, although it's far from the arcade. I really like the artwork and fold out instructions too. πŸŽπŸ“πŸ₯Š

    RickR has a modern console for once. I picked up a used 3ds today. I'll admit, the purple color was a selling point.

    MGL Update: I'm hanging in there given that Game #3 is Bubbles - A game I never played in arcades. I find the game very frustrating. Anyway, here's a fun :07 game play clip of Mr. Do! This is titled "I CALLED BANK"

    Here's Pac-Man for Intellivision from Atari Soft. This is played on a Sears Telegames Super Video Arcade going to a little Sony Trinitron. My favorite old-school port of the game.

    Welcome to Atari HQ in Los Gatos. Someone posted this picture on Facebook, and it screams 1970's to me.

    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.

    This week, I'm buying a new roof for our home. Can we all admit that being an adult sucks sometimes? There's very little time or $$ for gaming.

    After learning that the Retro World Series added another event in Minneapolis for April 7, I reached out in hopes of landing an interview for Episode 7 which will air next Wednesday, March 27. I was unable to schedule an interview for my pilot episode, but with two events in April (the other set for Las Vegas on April 26-28), my hope is to secure an interview by no later than Monday so I could edit the segment in time for Wednesday.

    I cannot believe it, just after my video the other day and I said I never find anything good in electronic recycling during holidays? Today I found a laptop! Guess someone got a new one for Christmas, in take, great condition, Silver 14 or 15' HP Pavilion! Of course could not log in, don't know specs yet but it came with WINDOWS 8 so already better than the old HP Pavilion I was playing with Linux. Will make a great secondary laptop. Looked it up and running recovery mode on it NOW.

    You know it saddens me that SEGA has never matched the quality / quantity / fun that they generated back in the 8-16 bit era. 😐

    Week 6 of the C25K program complete. Week 6, Day 3 wasn’t as bad as Week 6, Day 2, even though there was more running on Day 3. Two weeks left & sadly, there are no walking breaks. Straight running but I know I can do it, knees willing. 10 pounds down too! (& counting)

    They said it would never release on a Nintendo console, but today, 22 years after it first debuted on the Sony Playstation, Final Fantasy VII has just released on the Nintendo Switch. I'm really excited to finally get a chance to play this classic RPG for the first time ever.
