    The 2020 Retro Game/Junk Box

    I thought the Star Trek magazine was for you @RickR because you're a Trekkie (my assumption based on your profile cover image)! I didn't think that you put it there. One item I particularly struggled with was the modded Wii as I've always wanted one (I have a Wii) and the bowling bag. I love Wii Sports and the bag was perfect! Alas, I don't have space for it. Notes on some of the stuff I put in and photos below: The iam8bit sticker went on the outside of the box. Pointmaster joystick was part of the lot where I picked up the heavy sixer a couple of months ago. Stuff that did not make it in the box: the ET lego (shown below), a larger set of LotR figures, an Atari 8-bit CIB game, a plushy, and some other stuff. The Alan Wake game with the MS employee store sticker -- that was purchased by me way back in the day, and 1845, that's my employee number on the sticker. I was going to buy another copy to send (since I recommended it to RickR in another thread ) but decided to put a more personal touch on it 🙂 Rick, feel free to sell or trade it -- I don't mean to imply anything.

    This video shows what I passed on and what I put in. (If you just want to see what I put in, start at the 2:20 mark.) After I made the video, I also squeezed in a MAD Magazine about election turmoil (I thought it was fitting) and Q*bert for the Atari 8-bits.

    120,774 @RadioPoultry helped me out. I have an older version of MAME (0.131) that displays the graphics perfectly. It turns out I wasn't seeing a ton of stuff before because it wasn't rendering properly. Plus this version controls better (I use a mouse). I actually made it past the maze this time, and that platform part after the maze is TOUGH. I ran out of oxygen every time. And there are colored keys. I did clear the breakout bricks this time, and I think it gave me an extra life and a bonus (maybe?). I've made it there a few times with scores less that 100k, and I think the only difference is clearing out the breakout bricks. Tips - I only have one really. If you die at all at any time before that maze level, just reset MAME and start over. You'll need every life on the next platform. Plus you'll get really good on those first three platforms.

    33202 I didn't have any emulators set up on my computer, so I was going to pass on the challenges this month, but after seeing atarigames Instagram post about those paddle controllers I wanted to get an entry in (Hey BTB, enter me to win!). Was about to start figuring out an emulator and then remembered it was actually on my Arcade 1Up lol. It's definitely my least played game on here, so this is a cool reason to get into it!

    The Junk Box has returned to the mother ship. Hooey, it's heavy too. I was huffin' and puffin' by the time I got back home from our parcel locker. Let's have a look at it, shall we? It's so cool how you guys supplemented the decorations so tastefully. The box is definitely worn, but intact.

    Argon Emulator

    I'm not sure if anyone has seen this, but I thought I'd share it. This is only available for Android devices currently (phones, tablets and Android TV). It is excellent and their goal is to bring all the cartridge based systems to it. It is available as a Beta currently but it can certainly be tested/used. The cool thing is that you can add your own binaries to play. Below are images of the platforms currently supported and the controllers supported. More information here: Argon on M ark/Space

    Some 7800 games I recently picked up. With these games added, I have seven games remaining for a complete NTSC set. I also got a Star Wars prototype repro for the 2600. It's got a great looking label and was built using a Parker Brothers game cartridge -- a nice touch.

    The 2020 Retro Game/Junk Box

    I dunno any specifics of the manufacturing design. I think it is basically just a carrying case as many other consoles have. was Wii Sports the pack-in game for the system? This was the 2'nd one I had purchased while out "thrifting", the first one I gifted to one of my nephews as he is a bowling-nut. When I discovered @RickR was hosting another RJB it was the first thing I thought of to see if it'd fit. I didn't know what those muscle guys were but while in my possession before they went back into the box, I did set them up like bowling pins & shot "little-weeji" out of the cannon at them before he went back into the box.

    I opened up the RJB while @Atari Creep was here and we discovered Diana was punched BUT the hanging tab was in the box so I un-punched her :) Diana was a little to chubby to make it back into the RJB @RickR I would gladly pass Diana on to you in her un-punched condition if she has fellow officers she would like to be with.

    Now, don't get me wrong. I don't mean to pick favorites. There is some fantabulous stuff in this box. But I'm going to be honest. These items right here are absolutely amazing to me. They may be worthless -- I have no idea. But not to me. Can you guess what they are? If you said "pinballs", you would be correct. Yes, I'm a weirdo.

    WOW!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH @socrates63!!! You really didn’t have to do this. Thank you so much! This is AMAZING! Young here has really helped my collection grow! These are all excellent titles! I am especially excited for Adventure (the one with the missing label), which I could never find for a reasonable price at my local store, and Flag Capture, which isn’t terribly expensive but I could never find it at the store. I am also really excited to play Super Pac-Man! My first 7800 Homebrew. I really enjoy Super Pac-Man, and I am looking forward to seeing what they did with this version. And the handheld is very nice too! From watching @nosweargamer’s video a while back it doesn’t look too fun, but I’m glad to have it as a bit of a “movie prop”. The NSG card pack will be interesting to open, and the Creep pin is also really cool. It’s awesome to have these things from YouTubers that I watch regularly. Pink Gorilla! As a watcher of Metal Jesus, this is also kind of trippy for me to actually have! I’ve heard they’re a pretty good store. Good enough to make hats at least. This is good timing as I can’t seem to find my winter hat anywhere... I didn’t know there was a Prince of Persia movie! This ornament will be proudly hung on my mini-tree in my room. And lastly... the item that was in the mystery box! This thing has sat there for a month now, just begging to be opened. Turns out it was CIB Gravitar! Another game I wanted to get. This is my first red-labeled game. Honestly, Young, I can’t thank you enough! Next year I will have to fully participate in the box now that I have a job. Thanks!

    Squad Challenge - Major Havoc (Arcade/MAME)

    I decided to go with none of my options and play the game on my jailbroken DSi on that Atari collection. 60,811 is the best I did so far. I feel I could get much higher with a bit more practice.

    Do you have any pets?

    You know, I just brought my cat to the vet. She needed shots and a checkup. She is still quite healthy but needs some dental work and future blood work done. But, she is still doing good for a 13-year-old cat. She'll be alright. :O)

    Do you have any pets?

    Oh, have I not introduced my pet yet? Well, here he is. This is Fluff, our betta fish. See, Fluff works as a name as he’s not fluffy at all. Bettas are interesting fish. You can actually train them to do things. They’re very unique. Fluff can’t do anything too terribly fancy (so far), but we love him just the same. He will come up to greet you from the bottom of his bowl and look you in the face with his weird (but cute) fish eyes.

    A view of the RickR sanctum

    Something really cool came my way via a friend today. It's a Commodore 1084s monitor. It's really great because it has a lot of inputs on the back (RGB, composite, composite + chroma, etc) and stereo sound. And a very nice picture quality. A little bit of yellowing on one side, but that's of no matter to me. I tested it out with an old plug n play. My goal was to get a Commodore 64 hooked up, but we ended up playing a 3-way brawl battle on Gamecube instead.

    Mission accomplished here. We were hoping for a calm and peaceful day, and indeed that's what happened. Simplifying the menu helped. I got my gaming goals in, and the family played a few rounds of "Yahtzee". As a companion piece to @socrates63's picture, here's our turkey breast, also done on a wood pellet grill. It was outstanding. Tip for future reference: Stuff it with apple slices. It adds flavor.

    Today went well. I fired up the pellet grill for the second time and tried cooking a turkey. Certainly not the prettiest bird, but it came out well enough. It certainly was the best tasting turkey that I've ever had. My parents came over for dinner, and we had a good time.

    Been playing Nascar Rumble - Playstation & the sequel Rumble Racing - Playstation 2 and remembering what a blast it was playing these back in the day. Really just adrenaline rush racing with power ups like Mario Kart, the "NASCAR" licensing didn't really add anything to the point they dropped it in the PS2 follow up. Just spent a few hours playing both, forgot what a blast they are to play. 😎😜 Not the prettiest games and not often brought up even in retro gaming circles so thought I would mention and recommend them to anyone who may have over looked them. PICS FOR REFERENCE .

    The ultimate "2600 Starter Set" challenge

    You guys have hit the mark. But if you know the recipient, you *must* try to learn what games they loved as a kid. It may not include all the popular hits. For example, an ideal starter set for me would include "Bowling" and "Laser Blast" because I loved those ones growing up. Once you know those, you can supplement with Space Invaders, Asteroids, Pac Man, Defender, Yars', etc.

    The 2020 Retro Game/Junk Box

    I decided to make my own end label for the copy of Adventure (or “dventure” according to the damaged front label) that @socrates63 sent me. For this, since I couldn’t find my labeler (haven’t seen it in years, but I don’t know where it could have gone), the best I could do was a sharpie and some masking tape. I decided to make the most of my lack of proper labeling materials and create something a bit more special and personalized. And, I like it! I added a few drawings of some of the items and characters as well as the name of the game (with Odyssey 2-inspired exclamation point), name of the system (I debated between VCS and 2600 but ultimately chose the latter), and the Atari Fuji symbol. This label didn’t take me long to make, and aside from the fact that it is drawn on masking tape I think it turned out well and looks nice. Here’s my custom HDN label next to a genuine, limited edition copy of Galaxian with a special @RickR end label. Here’s what the front label looks like on Dventure. Did you know that Dventure is a jame program that you e with joystick controllers? I didn’t, but according the the label that’s what it is. Unfortunately, the label doesn’t tell me what a jame program (trademark) is, or what is is to “e” something. Overall, I like my new label for Adventure. I think I am going to start buying more games without end labels in the future. They typically run cheaper than the others at my local store by a couple of bucks. I enjoyed doodling on the Adventure label as well. It isn’t terribly professional looking, like Rick’s labels are, but I think it adds a touch of personalization to my collection.

    Squad Challenge - Major Havoc (Arcade/MAME)

    I'm not sure how I did it. I've played several more rounds and end up at 92k. It must have been the breakout bricks. Keep trying! Try not to hit the ceiling at all on the platforms. Once you get stunned by that, you almost always die.

    When Someone Big Tweets You Back

    It is always cool. I've had Star Trek actors react to posts I've made either on Twitter or Instagram and this is them doing it, not someone in charge of their social media. Some of the actors who have replied/reacted are Jeri Ryan, Wilson Cruz, and Kenneth Mitchell.

    I would put these on my list: Crystal Castles. It was a game-changer for me. Phantasy Star Series (1-4). This was one of the most successful JRPG series of all time. Also, King Lassic (Lashiec) returns in PSIV to wreak terror! I loved it. Forgotten Worlds. My favorite Capcom arcade game of all time. Those are the best games, in my opinion.
