    Harry Potter vs Freddy Krueger ?

    Freddy would get his butt whipped...if I know Watson. If she's got the balls to punch Malfoy then Krueger doesn't stand a chance.

    So you're saying that if George Plimpton were to compare the Atari 2600 fish game with Intellivisionยฎ Shark! Shark!, he'd think you'd agree that Intellivisionยฎ Shark! Shark! plays like the real thing?

    Squad Challenge - Go Fish! (Atari 2600)

    This game is excellent, but it doesn't quite live up to Shark Shark. Mostly because it starts too slow. The real fun and points start to rack up only when your fish is bigger, and that takes a while. It's really fun though, and thank you for doing this challenge! It's so awesome to try new games.

    Squad Challenge - Go Fish! (Atari 2600)

    Congratulations RickR! Congratulations @RickR! What a fantastic score! I hope this was a fun challenge, we don't often get to play homebrew games in Squad Challenge, I think that's something we can do move of in the future. Shark! Shark! was always one of my favorite games on Intellivision and it was interesting to see a Shark! Shark! inspired homebrew hit the Atari 2600. A simple but fun concept. Thanks everyone for turning out to play a homebrew Squad Challenge. How do you think Go Fish! compares to other homebrew games on the Atari 2600? Does it live up to the fun of Shark! Shark! on the Intellivision? @RickR posted an impressive score of 2,649 points! The legendary @TrekMD ranked 2nd on the leaderboard with 1,717 points, and @RadioPoultry was right behind him with 1,488 points. @chas10e rounds things out with a solid showing of 831 points. Congrats to RickR for his top ranking and to everyone who jumped in this squad challenge and shared a score! I'd like to encourage RickR to post his new high score on the Scoreboard, and let's make sure this Challenge continues on! NOTE: Our next High Score Squad Challenge will be a special challenge celebrating National Pac-Man Day. Be there!

This time, kick back with a couple of relaxing video games from the '80s, following Jim and Sean through their adventures. (Note: even though we at least twice mentioned the date we recorded this episode, we know that it's easy to forget or not even notice, but...this episode was recorded before the stay-at-home orders were issued! We assure you we practice social distancing. Then again, it's not much of a change of pace for either of us, given our social skills.) https://www.fab4it.com/piefactory/audio/PFP_Episode109.mp3

    I've really been into Clue lately. My brother got me this board game for Christmas a few months ago. The only problem is trying to find a time when my family actually wants to play it with me.

    WINNER: Justin Xevious Atari 7800 March 30, 2020 ROUND 1: @RadioPoultry ROUND 2: @Justin ROUND 3: @Justin RadioPoultry is a SERIOUS contender and this was a great game to play! He's a gentleman and a great guy to play against. The Atari 7800 really shines with Xevious as @kamakazi20012 was just saying, it feels like legit arcade action with a ton of stuff moving around the screen and zero slowdown. This match was particularly fun because Radio and I both got farther in Xevious than either of us ever had. Radio always posts incredible scores, when I sat down to play this morning I thought I was done for. I barely squeaked by, and RadioPoultry and I had a very close game. Hope to play again!

    Game Development Guide

    You're welcome but I won't be teaching programming this time around. What I'm after is those interested in making video games to have the basic knowledge and understanding of what it takes to make a game. I'm also going to be expressing what making a game should be all about. I don't want people coming in full force and making games just to make money. Money should never be the reason behind making games. Those that do that don't and never will care about the video game community and we don't want that. I want people that want to make a game because of their passion for video games and the machines whether it be one or many. If people coming here because they want to make a game but they haven't got a clue on where to begin then I hope this guide will point them in the right direction to having all of their ducks in a row. It is soo much easier to come to the programming stage after spending time putting together everything conceptual on paper from the story to character designs to world appearances that are to be put in the game. There is a reason to my madness for doing it this way that will all come together in the end.

    Here's the other one. This one is the sole reason why I wanted a LaserDisc player. Wal-Mart in Branson, Missouri had a Pioneer LD setup and playing a demo disc. This clip from The Mind's Eye was playing when I discovered the setup in the store one visit my Mother and I made. I repeated that clip about 4 times on the machine. Something about was just mesmerizing to me. I loved the music especially and I thought the animation did a very good job of getting the story across without any dialog. See what you think? On a side note, I had this on Radio Shack's version of the Mind's Eye on VHS. I never got the LD or the LD version of the Mind's Eye which I wish I could find now that I have a LD player. I absolutely LOVE the music in The Mind's Eye and Beyond The Mind's Eye videos. I would sometimes just put these in to go to sleep on.

    took this pic awhile ago ...figgered it'd make good wall paper every once inawhile they will fall off the little ledger I have there I look for 'em at thrifts open 'em up the instructions usually have a parts list so I'll take the time too see if it's complete I try and find stuff from the earliest patent of the game (like first editions I guess) ... IMHO ... if it looks old its pretty cool ... my family doesn't alway agree ... I still haven't played my 1934 Monopoly yet ;"( for family gatherings I usually take 4 or 5 games with me. they also have favorites of their own. some winners I brought were "The Amazing Race", "Score Four", "Trouble", "Dynamite Shack" ... they always have a "scabble-off" "Settlers of Catan" ( or just Catan ) is wildly popular the card games like D&D ain't my thing I would like to learn how to play "Go" I have one with the stones & all .... one of these days I guess

    I think Commodore took the cake with William Shatner (although Leonard Nimoy would have been even better). But I'm just thankful Atari didn't choose Bill Cosby like TI did.

    One Of Those Times

    Have you ever had one of those times when you questioned buying something and not realizing what you bought or passed up until you got home? Today was my day for that. I went to the store to get some items we needed. Before leaving I headed for the Hot Wheels. No harm in looking right? Wrong. Before I knew it I had 30 cars in my buggy. One car I grabbed made me try to find the rest to complete to series. I found them, all five cars. The fifth car, a neat looking race truck, was the first I found on a peg hanging front and center. During checkout I had put most of the Hot Wheels cars back including the complete 5 car set I hunted down. At the last second I grabbed the little race truck. He just looked cool and I had not seen it before. He went home with me. Once I got home I got a closer look at him. My jaw dropped. Here...take a look. See? Cool little truck, right? Most Hot Wheels collectors might catch it but get a good look. See anything? I'll give you a hint...pay close attention to the artwork on the model. See it now? For those that missed it or simply don't know, behind the front wheel is a circle with a flame. This is a special marking to HW cars because it indicates what are called Treasure Hunts. Once I seen that I turned the card to try to see behind it. Sure enough... "Congratulations! We're celebrating 25 years of treasure-hunts and you just found one!" ...is on the blister card behind the truck. Out of all of the years and decades of hunting and collecting Hot Wheels cars this is the first Treasure Hunt vehicle I have ever found. And I almost left it behind. I never even realized or noticed that it was a Treasure Hunt vehicle until I got it home. I'm glad I didn't leave it at the store. I know it sounds childish but finding that car today just made my day a bit better and brighter. Especially with this virus thing going on right now. Its amazing what a little toy car can do sometimes when it does nothing at all but sit there.

    Congets @RickR ! I hadn't played many INTV games, never played "Shark shark" so I can't compare the two. Yeah "Go Fish" seemed to start slow waiting in the weeds for some morsel to swim by last night I had troubles with the electric eels and didn't improve my score ๐Ÿ˜ฌ just when I thought things were going good too Oh well ... there's always the next squad challenge

    How Often Do You Play Board Games?

    Clue had a competitor called Whodunit? I had both. I liked them both but favored Whodunit? better. The player pieces were wood. https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/1691/whodunit My wife and I have board games but rarely play them. I get board (see how I did that?) with them quickly. I'll play board games on a game machine all day long because you can have more than two players. During my young adult years I would visit my cousin often. Her house was grand central station for fun. And she had a ton of board games. She also had a few for the NES and SuperNES. Clue was one she had on the Super which was a lot of fun but you had to have the game's manual because your "scratch" sheet was on two center pages. She would take it to work with her and make copies using their Xerox machine. I got the Genesis port and, yep, same thing. I went to the post office to get mine copied. Fun game but make sure you have the manual.

    How Often Do You Play Board Games?

    There's a Gameboy version of Clue that's pretty good if you want to play but can't find two extra people. Also on other systems too. NES, for example. I've got a couple of board game GBA carts that I like to take with me on airplane trips. Usually three games per cart, and the computer makes a good opponent.

    It's not 80's but still fun to watch. I had two VHS tapes (remember those?) titled Beyond The Mind's Eye and one from Radio Shack titled The Mind's Eye. Both were compilations of early computer generated visuals set to some of the most creative music I've ever heard. This clip I'm sharing was one of my favorites from Beyond The Mind's Eye titled "Too Far". It might be from the 1990's but it retains that 1980's flare. It's also a time where computers were transitioning from being a luxury item into being a common place item in everything we do. Enjoy the short clip.

    I totally get what you're saying Justin. I remember not really trying Mario 64 until after some of the 3D computer classics like Descent, Wolfenstein, Doom, Magic Carpet, etc. So I'm kind of in the same boat. The game itself is a technical marvel, but the gameplay seems a little dry and maybe even tired. Still, it's the presentation that makes the game a masterpiece. The opening screen with Mario's giant 3D head and voice is still amazing to see. Nintendo knew how to dress-up their games, that's for sure.
