    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

    BioShock - Personal Progress

    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.

    I never thought of it as having levels... at least not in the traditional sense. It's not an open world, it's pretty linear, but it never felt like I went from level to level.... more like I just continued a story. It's been a while since I played, though, so I might have to go through it again to see if it feels like there are distinct levels. Maybe it does and the design was just good enough to blur them a bit. I do really like the art style in the game. The kinda 20's art deco stuff was really a change from most FPS style games, I thought. And the sound when you hear the Big Daddies was always kinda chilling. The game has a great ambiance. My first time I tried playing it... I kinda soft locked myself. I got to a point and didn't have enough ammo to fight the baddies I was supposed to go through. I set it down, frustrated, and didn't return for a while. Then came back later and started a new game and I guess tweaked my gameplay somehow and pretty much went start to finish. I also couldn't harvest the little sisters. lol... just couldn't do it.

    Atari I/O LIVE!

    ASTRO WARRIOR Sega Master System Livestream: Memories of playing Astro Warrior for Sega Master System I share memories of playing Astro Warrior for Sega Master System while Gianna holds the camera. Astro Warrior is a shoot 'em up game that came on a "Combo Cartridge" with Hang-On (see above) as the pack-in game with the Sega Master System. Is Astro Warrior a worthy pack-in? Growing up, I really liked Astro Warrior but after a while I set it aside for Blazing Lazers, a similar game on TurboGrafx-16. Blazing Lazers is still one of my all-time favorite games for any system, but what about Astro Warrior? Is it still fun? I first played Astro Warrior at my friend’s house, he had a Sega Master System and seeing the games made me want to get one. Nobody else wanted to play Hang-On (I played it last week in the post above this one, it turned out to be an awesome game!) but Astro Warrior was a different story. During the summer we’d spend the entire afternoon playing Astro Warrior. We didn’t love it as much as Shinobi, but it was an impressive game for 1986 and was the first “Blazing Lazers-style” shoot-em-up game that I remember playing. My friend eventually gave me the game, and the Astro Warrior I play in the livestream is the same cartridge I grew up playing at my friend’s house. Pretty cool! It was a Hang-On/Astro Warrior cartridge that came in a Hang-On/Safari Hunt case, which I tried to “customize” with a pen and stickers when I was a kid. Do I regret marking up a retro game? No! You’ll get to see why in the video! 💥 BIG TIP OFF — Start new levels with drones: Whenever you finish off a level and the name of the next level is on the screen, hit 1 and 2 alternately about 25-30 times. If you are fast and don't double hit one of the buttons, you'll get 2 purple firing drones to begin the next stage with. From the back of the box: "Hang-On / Astro Warrior: Twice the action. Twice the risk. One incredible combination. Astro Warrior pits you against the enemy's fleet of superpowers spaceships. And ultimately, the invincible Master Ship. In this treacherous black universe you can only count on yourself. To shoot fast. To shoot straight. If you do — you get more power. More weapons. To beat the villains. To beat the odds. If you don't — the odds beat you.

    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 😀

    BioShock - Personal Progress

    Well, I was going to save this game for a Let's Play video series on my YouTube channel but I just couldn't stay away from it. It would have made for a great video series but I simply HAD to play the game. It has been on my want list for a very long time now. Be warned that this post may contain spoilers for those who have never played the game before. Brief Explanation No...this is not an explanation of the game but rather how I came about the BioShock series. One of the free Games with Gold from XBOX was BioShock Infinite. I immediately loved the game for its antiquated artistic appeal and the story quickly grabbed my attention. I played the game for a while but never finished it because of another Games with Gold title that came next and became one of my favorite games on the console...Borderlands. But that didn't keep me from wanting to hunt down the first BioShock games in the series. I was curious if the story in all BioShock games in the series were interconnected somehow. So this is my first time playing the original BioShock game. Current Progress I just finished the first two levels, took down my first Big Daddy (mechanical looking machines protecting what appears to be a possessed child). These things protect a child (called Little Sisters) and in order to get to the child you have to destroy the Big Daddy protecting them. Once you can get to the child you have the option of "harvesting" them or "rescuing" them. If you harvest them you get more stuff called ADAM, rescuing them you get less. ADAM is the only source used for getting upgrades. Without it you might as well call it quits. The Big Daddy protecting the child had already been destroyed as part of the story. I had the difficult choice of saving or harvesting my first Little Sister. If I was to harvest the child the child would die. Poor child was running away and hiding from me in a corner behind a counter. Whether in a game or not it's still a child or the portrayal of a child...I simply couldn't harvest as much as I would have loved the extra amount of upgrades. So I saved her. I was then greeted with a second Little Sister. This one was still protected by her Big Daddy. The fight was on! A simple shot of Shock EVE (will explain another time) and a few shotgun blasts took him out. The child was mine! Again, I couldn't do it...so I saved her as well. I'm now on the third level. Current Thoughts of the Game I have to admit that compared to BioShock Infinite, which bright and full of light, this one seems a bit more dark and sinister. Nothing like what I was expecting. The difference between the two is easily night and day. It does have its scary moments that have made me jump. Nothing like trying to explore an area or solve a puzzle only to turn around and be greeted by an enemy trying to take your head off. Controls are still taking me a while to get use to as well but I am enjoying the artistic style of the game. Ammo is a mixed bag...for some weapon types it has been easy to find, for others it seems to be scarce. I will post more as I progress. But so far I am enjoying the game. Maybe I ought not to play it in a dimly lit room? So far it's been hard to put down. I'm always wanting to see what's around that next corner. Final Progress & Thoughts I beat the game after a week's worth of playing averaging about 2 to 3 hours per day. What started out as a dark and sinister adventure ended up being a plot twist that I did not see coming. Quite possibly the best story line I've seen in a game in a long time. My only issue with the game was the limitation on the ammo even after upgrades. Everything consumable in this game should be used as sparingly as possible. The puzzles, while some were tough, were not overly complicated. Controls did take some getting use to after being use to a different layout in another FPS game but worked rather well. The end boss was a site to behold. I bet I stood there for about a minute studying it. Some crazy stuff for sure. Very much an original story from start to finish. The ending was OK if not short. It could have been a bit more drawn out in my opinion. What really surprised me was the connection between the Little Sisters and the Big Daddy characters. As the story unfolded this important connection became clear. What I had seen as difficult enemies turned out to be one of the best plot twists in a video game I've ever seen, period. I'm trying really hard not to give away too much. It's actually difficult. I don't want to spoil for others who have not played this game yet. This is one game I will be visiting again. I know I won't be as blown away the second time around but I know enough now that I should be able to explore areas I missed in previous locations. Bring on BioShock 2! Tidbit I've looked at images of the cover artwork for the packaging to this game for years now. Only when I had a physical copy of the game in my hands did I notice that there was a child standing to the left of Big Daddy. I've had the game for a few days now.

    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.

    BioShock - Personal Progress

    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.

    Positive Online Experiences

    In short, this post is to share any positive online experiences you may have had. It could be anything from helping a family or friend get that extremely hard achievement or simply knocking it out of the park in a free-for-all bash with some of your online friends. Whatever the experience was, if it was positive, I'd like to hear about it. It can be difficult to trust people you have never met face to face in an online world where anything can happen. Hopefully this post will open the door to create a positive online gaming experience where other gamers here, and elsewhere, can expand their friendlist of online gamers who share the same enthusiasm and spirit that makes online gaming a source of entertainment. My personal experiences have been with my brother-in-law. Since owning a 360 and obtaining a Gold account we have played loads of games together online. We beat the tar out of everyone in Saint's Row the Third, battled an alien race in Saint's Row IV, kicked butt in Crackdown, battled our way through hordes of enemies in Halo and Gears, took out WW II enemies in Sniper Elite 2, 3, and 4...and built some incredible structures in Minecraft. We also explored deep into Terraria's underground areas and fought Handsome Jack in Borderlands. Actually, all three Borderlands games. My gamer score was only in the 2,000s when I started...it's now sitting at 34,000. Playing games solo is great but when you can dig deep into games with another player often times you can help each other out discovering parts of a game that might have otherwise been missed. So, what have been your positive gaming experiences? Do you play online at all and if so on what platform? What's your favorite game to play online? Also, maybe someone here who plays online might be willing to add you as an online friend. Sharing of gamertags might not be a bad idea but not required.

    I played about 10 minutes of BioShock 1 this morning. Made it to a spot where I seen the first large robot thing. I already jumped a few times from things being behind when I would turn to go in a different direction. Talk about coming out swinging! What little I've experienced I enjoyed. I plan to play this one more later but after I get setup to capture the footage. I found a new game to do a Let's Play series on. As soon as I upload the next Borderlands 2 video to my channel.
