  1. FYI I live in Kelowna, B.C. CANADA so to be clear I am not complaining but thanks to the fires in the U.S. we have certainly had our share of smoke, we are just south of the US border so winds have carried it over 😒. Past couple weeks has looked a bit like Silent Hill around here. Certainly not as bad as the fires we had our first year here in Kelowna but it does sometimes remind me a bit of that just from the way it looks around here sometimes. Otherwise, no complaints, oddly enough even walking 25 minutes to my eye exam yesterday I was fine, smoke and air particulates never seem to trigger my asthma fortunately 😉 Anyway here are images from here the past week, hopefully nobody here is impacted to much and I hope nobody lives within the fire zone? If so you likely have more important matters to tend to but otherwise feel free to share any images, stories or STATUS regarding the current fire situation. Take care and stay safe everyone.
  2. YES might be nostalgia but honestly when I see this question there is only one that comes to the front in my mind, been there from the start on NES and loved the original but that said for me, as cliche as it might be to say mine is also The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past on super Nintendo. I tried but I never really got into his adventures once he jumped into 3D on N64 or anything afterwards on Gamecube etc, I looked forward to them and tried them but they just made me appreciate Link to the Past even more. Boring answer, typically my choice is NOT typical or expected but I just could not consider anything else.

      Heh THANKS JUSTIN, well honestly I wanted to uploads SOMETHING and tried to come up with something that I could do quickly mostly because my last couple videos prior where like 6 months ago back in MARCH. Now I had the Grizzly Addams full beard with lots of gray 😆in it, starting to look like the hermit I mostly am but after shaving it down to a goatee I thought it looked much better at least even if I haven't had a haircut since before the whole Virus thing started, we avoid going out and with Melissa working from home YOU MIGHT THINK if anything that would give me more time to organize my thoughts, get my head together and plan and make videos.....WELL WHEN YOUR WIFE IS WORKING FROM HOME AND YOU ARE AROUND EACH OTHER 24/7 EVERY WAKING MOMENT believe me that is not the case 😏, barely a moment to myself these days let alone enough to put together and upload a video 😜I KID, MOSTLY..........no I'm not, HELP ME......😩


  4. 😎😜My early experience with a classic computer, silly story, what's yours? First I start off with my usual rambling, plus a shoutout to jugghead82, then a silly story of mischievous youths interaction with a very classic computer. PLEASE leave a comment or quick response video relating your own interaction or experience with a classic computer or computing platform check out his channel HERE: https://www.youtube.com/user/jugghead82 Check out his Rock impersonation and tasting / review of Dwayne the Rock Johnson's TEQUELA (no not VODKA like I said in the video 😜) HERE: https://youtu.be/EZW1lqVMkRk
  5. Dame Diana Rigg: Avengers, Bond and Game of Thrones actress dies at 82



  6. 😢RIP - Leslie Hamilton Freas - Linda Hamilton's Twin Sister At 63




  7. Heh, back in the day this was definitely a "let's give it just one more go" type of game.
  8. I know someone else mentioned the McWill mod to improve the screen issue? Coincidentally just seen THIS video, now this is for the LYNX II so not sure how or if it might apply to an original LYNX but interesting still. UPDATE : Ah ok, noticed early in the video the AD where he ordered the mod states MCWILL LCD UPGRADE KIT FOR ATARI LYNX II (REDESIGNED VERSION 2) SO PERHAPS THIS IMPLIES THE ORIGINAL DESIGN WAS FOR THE ORIGINAL LYNX? 🤔
  9. Feeling stressed and uncertain in the current climate? Need something soothing, relaxing and comforting to help your mind drift to a more peaceful place? Try this quick restful video. YOUR WELCOME! 😉😜
  10. 😢RIP - Ben Cross Dies: ‘Chariots Of Fire’, ‘Star Trek’ & ‘First Knight’ Star Was 72


  11. My beloved childhood cartoons of My beloved childhood cartoons of Hanna-Barbera. Seeing this image just brought back warm fuzzies of all the great memories watching cartoons by Hanna-Barbera. What were your favorites?
  12. Just some fun but I think some of you may appreciate the fun music parodies you can find on the Holderness Family Youtube Channel ! My wife and I have been enjoying the Holderness Family music parodies for a few years now. Just some fun entertainment to lighten moods. A nice family who have a lot of fun, they do all kinds of genres of music so you are sure to find some favorites.
  13. One of the biggest lies any Youtuber will tell, is this opening line or intro announcement : 
    Seriously, knock it off

      Now I know how to open my next video! 😉

  14. Literally stumbled on this and was really surprised to see the word COLECOVISION, honestly you never see that right? Max Reload and the Nether Blasters - Official Trailer (2020) Sci-Fi, Adventure Movie Check it out, sure it is low rated and likely not the greatest but clearly someone involved was a fan of good old Colecovision because the game cartridge and the system shown is just that, Colecovision! Unlike all of these types of movies it's not just another Nintendo or Nintendo like platform, so even in a little low key film like this it is great to see it based around COLECOVISION and that they at least attempted to cater to a very specific fan base.
  15. Yeah, so called "Atari" today are nothing more than litigation hungry holders of trademark / IP who just want to try and grab every bit profit they can. Also, they want to keep reselling the same crap over and over to the Atari faithful. The AtariVCS has yet to have a single unit reach an actual backers hands, the only people who have claimed to receive any units seem to be "friends" or family (IE: people connected) to the AtariVCS team, I remain very skeptical an actual backer will ever receive a unit, even if they DO it is nothing worth the price and certainly brings nothing new to the table but of course people want one because it has a woodgrain finish and an Atari logo on it. They have proven to be very heavy handed against anyone using the Atari name even though such projects are what keep interest and the legacy in mind and alive. They wont release a 2600 compatible with HDMI for $50 or under because they are not capable of doing so, so instead they want to sue a company that has done exactly that 🙄 They consider themselves as gatekeepers of the Atari brand but sadly it seems every move and decision they make just deteriorate the Atari brand and legacy more and more, SHAME. You damn well know even if they worked with HYPERKIN to produce the Retron77 they would have been $150 USD right from the get go.
  16. Lot's of retro goodness and wonderfully displayed as well. 😎
  17. Interesting article. THE CREATION OF MISSILE COMMAND AND THE HAUNTING OF ITS CREATOR, DAVE THEURER By Alex Rubens on August 15, 2013 at 12:00pm https://www.polygon.com/features/2013/8/15/4528228/missile-command-dave-theurer?fbclid=IwAR3zZIL3eGy2ic8Ryyz1C2OV_vQxF8aqyqRYEdfOwFLOtXObm32bsZk8Z9U
  18. RIP - BUT really cannot be sad in this case, a well deserved rest for a long, long life! Olivia de Havilland, a two-time Oscar winner and for decades the last surviving star of "Gone With the Wind," has died at age of 104, her publicist Lisa Goldberg told CNN.https://www.ctvnews.ca/entertainment/olivia-de-havilland-star-of-gone-with-the-wind-dies-at-104-1.5039658

  19. Awesome NES game FROM BELOW 😎 That's right, came across this and thought I would share. Not just in the classic 8-bit NES style but in fact actually available to play online in a browser based NES emulator or even better download the latest ROM file direct from the authour to play in an emulator or even on actual NES compatible hardware using Flashcart / Everdrive etc. https://mhughson.itch.io/from-below A fun and impressive game! Check out this screen shot as well an excerpt of the description. Link to itchio . com for more info and ROM downloads. The Kraken cometh... From the deepest trenches of the ocean, the Kraken has come to lay waste to your city! The archers have slung every arrow. The burning tar has run dry. Every piece of military weaponry has been dispatch. And yet... the Kraken moves forward, climbing the towering walls of your seaside fortress. With no ammunition left, the city itself moves from a barricade, to a weapon! The stones of the walls are broken off, and hurdled down at hideous creature. And it just might be enough to slow it down till morning, when surely help will arrive... --- Hi! I am working on my first Homebrew NES game, FROM BELOW! It a falling block puzzle game featuring: Soft Drops Hard Drops Wall Kicks T-Spins Lock Delay 3 modes of play: Kraken Battle Mode The signature mode of FROM BELOW. Battle the Kraken by clear lines across the onslaught of attacking Kraken Tentacles. The Tentacles push more blocks onto the screen every few seconds, forcing to act quickly, and strategize on an every changing board. nes_tetris_july_03_gameplay_edit.gif.f612edbacd3915eafbfc0e0e5735b0f8.gif Classic Mode The classic block falling mechanics you know and love without any new gimicks. Modernize for 2020, with Hard Drops, Lock Delay, and more, making this (hopefully) the best feeling puzzle game on the NES! Turn Based Kraken Battle Mode Similar to "Kraken Battle Mode", but instead of the Kraken attacking every few seconds, it advances its tentacle every time you drop a piece. Make every move count, as this move favors slow, deliberate play! https://mhughson.itch.io/from-below
  20. Oh man R.O.B. would have been awesome! Oh I miss not having that, not so much to USE IT but to just look it it, so nostalgic ! 🤖
  21. Found many of my favorites like TOM SERVO from Mystery Science Theater 3000. So many popular and less known ROBOTS, posted elsewhere but I had to share this higher resolution version. WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE?
