    Just so you guys don't think I'm dead (because of no posts lately) -- although I'm sure @MaximumRD would respectfully report on it if I was, there's a new project I've been working on. Restoration of a 2003 Subaru. It's got a water leak (which makes it smell bad), and needs some engine work. But I'm having FUN with it. My father was an auto mechanic. It feels good to get the hands dirty. AND...I got a NEW JOB! I start next week. Should be lower stress. I hope.

    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

    My son gave me a gift of NES "Top Gun" yesterday. My goal is to land the plane on the carrier. I failed a few times, but now I've read the manual. I won't let you down this time, Goose.

    Atari 8-bit Missile Command with a Trak-ball (in analog trak-ball mode) is truly awesome.

    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. 🏞️

    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. πŸ™„

    I'll miss Robert Forster. What a presence. Just watched him in El Camino tonight, then saw on my phone he passed away from cancer. Was brilliant in Twin Peaks and Jackie Brown. One of my favorite actors, I'm sad he's gone.

    I thought I would be able to return sooner but that didn’t happen due to all of the non-gaming stuff which consumed my daily schedule. I then decided that I wouldn’t return until I was sure I could do so without rescheduling/canceling. Life has slowed down to where I can return to retro gaming and return to Twitch with a new episode of Retro With Marco! I hope you will join me this Tuesday, October 15 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT when I will have the following: - High score and speedrun shoutouts - The Toshiba Pasopia & the recent tape dumps - A quick look at Arkandenoid for the C64 My plan for the show is to return to the bi-weekly schedule but I will keep everyone updated here, on Discord, and on other social media. https://twitch.tv/retrowithmarco See you then!

    Oh guys, I'm feeling so overwhelmed at work lately. Please forgive me for venting, but it's gotten so difficult. Do more with less. I just feel so bad that I can't seem to keep up.

    πŸ‘‹ Update: Summer is wrapping up and we're headed into the Fall season! I hope everybody enjoyed our Summer Events this year, including the Pole Position II Grand Prix, Howard Scott Warshaw Day, and Pizza Party Weekend! We'll have some fun stuff coming up for the Fall and Winter too. I've been very busy w/ professional life and haven't been posting much. Hurricane Dorian is approaching and that will have my full attention for the next few days. I'm safe and everything is going well! I just posted the new Squad Challenge, we're getting ready for Fall by playing Ghouls 'N Ghosts on Sega Genesis. It's hard as nails, enjoy!

    Here's a great title for #cibsunday in terms of gameplay and packaging. Control the mother kangaroo by hopping over platforms and climbing ladders to save her baby while avoiding apple throwing monkeys. I played this in arcades as a kid and really enjoyed it although I didn't get very far. It was one of those games with so many different sounds, bright colors, and lots of things going on at once. This 2600 port does a really good job of delivering the same sort of action and looks pretty good, I think, although it's far from the arcade. I really like the artwork and fold out instructions too. πŸŽπŸ“πŸ₯Š

    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"

    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.

    Welcome to Atari HQ in Los Gatos. Someone posted this picture on Facebook, and it screams 1970's to me.

    OMG you guys! I just got something spectacular. A really old 12" Sony TV. From the 1970's. It's got a wood case! It needs to be cleaned up. But boy-o...is there any better way to play Atari than a really old Trinitron? I'M PUMPED!

    Hey guys, if anybody here gets METV, tonight at 10 EST, 9 CST there's an episode of a show called "Collector's Call" in which a video game collector shows off his massive collection, which includes such rarities as a Sega Neptune prototype. Figured you guys would be interested.

    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? πŸ˜‚
