    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

    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. 🏞️

    ⚠️ Having an issue with the main part of the website (not the forums) Likely Wordpress related. Working on resolving this. Will try to have the new High Score Squad Challenge up later tonight as well!

    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"

    πŸŽ₯ 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 β€˜90s?

    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.

    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.

    🎬 Steel Talons today on a NEW episode of Lynx Lounge. Fire up that whirly bird and hit the blue skies. This arcade port is not bad... see for yourself:

    Another CRT for me. This one came for free via the Facebook marketplace. It's a 9" Sears. Manufactured July 87. It has both RF and composite inputs. The tube is very flat, but not a Trinitron (I don't think). This one may be my favorite one yet, as the picture quality is really good.

    Whelp I just finally got myself an Atari Lynx! Not the best physical condition but it works. Gonna try to repaint the case, I think. It's the first model type. Not the more compact model 2.

    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)

    2nd earthquake in as many days. They're comparing it to the Northridge earthquake (1994).
