    📰 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

    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. 🙄

    LAST WEEK!!!!! The walk is this Sunday. If you have been meaning to now is the time. DONATE today. You could win some cool stuff and help make Alzheimer's a memory. https://act.alz.org/site/TR?px=12356861&fr_id=12598&pg=personal

    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"

    🎥 NEW VIDEO MONDAY! Here’s a throwback: a home movie I made when I was a kid, recreating the commercials for Atari Lynx. Who remembers these Lynx commercials from the ‘90s?

    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.

    Apparently Nintendo is filming a commercial on Saturday in our building. Maybe this is my chance to be discovered? Too obvious if I come decked out in a Zelda t-shirt? 😂

    Recovering from oral surgery & playing 90s "B" and "C" list platformers in between icing my face. Rayman, Bug!, Clockwork Knight, Gex, Busy & Zool are all getting some playtime. What are some of your favorite second and third tier platform games?

    Hello again! Here's the latest on my end: All of the non-gaming stuff in my life ramped up significantly to where I postponed my Twitch show on a few occasions. While work was rather hectic, it was still going well. However, it remained hectic throughout these summer months; I had to do a double-take when I realized it was the 2nd half of August. Unrelated, but no less important: I went for a Wellness Visit (Physical) for the first time in far too long. I went for the proverbial full tune-up including a tetanus shot. (Wow, that part really sucked. I'm not going to sugarcoat it at all. You feel it for 2-3 days, and my body sure felt it.) The good news is that all of my vitals are normal and test results were negative. So let this serve as a reminder: Be sure to get a check-up especially if you're getting up there in age like I am. I was hoping to stream an episode before an upcoming trip but that won't happen, unfortunately. I realized that I really hadn't kept up on any retro gaming news and world records, and I'd rather get back into the swing of things before getting back on Twitch. I had to put the MGL aside (I started off well but would have likely faded given the list of games chosen for this quarter, but I was having a lot of fun). I'm glad to see that atari.io is still up and running smoothly and that the community here remains positive. I look forward to joining a Wednesday night chat in the near future. Marco

    I almost beat Blue Lightning for Jaguar CD in a single sitting. As it happened, I lost my last plane crashing into an iceberg - pilot error. I'll never understand why that game gets so much hate. For me, it looks and plays as well as Total Eclipse/Solar Eclipse on 3DO/Saturn and other games like that. Also, can we talk about the ripping heavy/hard rock soundtrack? Its not a very deep game but its a great way to blow through a couple of hours.

    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)

    Finally shaking off this stubborn cold that I've had for the better part of a week. I streamed some C64 Archon last night & it felt good to get through an hour w/o coughing & sneezing like crazy.
