  1. I only knew about Ted Knight because I looked him up recently. He also did a lot of radio work in his career. He kept himself quite busy.
  2. I'm really enjoying seeing the classic gaming systems & computers get pushed to new limits.
  3. I learned of this title two days ago on EverythingC64. This platformer is in the early development stages but it looks very impressive. It's called The Wild Wood and you can learn more about it here: https://www.wildwoodgame.co.uk/ Kodiak64 is helping out with the code and posted an update earlier this month: https://kodiak64.com/blog/wild-wood-deconstructed The Wild Wood is slated for release in the summer of 2021.
  4. The documentary Insert Coin, in which Midway is the focus, premieres tomorrow (November 25) on-demand. Here's an article from Polygon, who will also host a special panel on November 29:




    The special panel will feature Eugene Jarvis, Mark Turmell, Ernest Cline, and director Joshua Tsui.


    There's more info on the documentary website -- https://www.insertcoindoc.com/

      😮 I had no idea that Midway was an American company until just now. Thanks for bringing the video to our collective attention.

    Start your Thanksgiving holiday with the replay of Retro With Marco on Twitch! I'll be in the chat providing additional commentary on the show. htttps://twitch.tv/retrowithmarco
  6. Thanks for the info! I may give this one a shot on my phone.
  7. In addition to the games mentioned by both @RickR and @MaliciousCarp, I would add Archon to the list. I wasn't as big of a fan of Archon II but it's worth checking out. Summer Games II and Winter Games; Epyx really had a heck of run back in the 1980s. If you like adventure games, then check out The Bard's Tale. Infocom focused on text adventure games, including the Zork trilogy and The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. This link lists several C64 developers on itch.io -- http://retrogamernation.com/commodore-64-itch-io-sites/ Another friendly forum site worth checking out is EverythingC64 as there are some gamers there who also like to work with BASIC -- https://everythingc64.boards.net/
  8. Hello and welcome! This is a genuine community and I hope your experiences here are as positive as mine.

    Retro With Marco returns for Episode 46! Join me on Twitch for a slew of scoring & speedrun shoutouts! I'll also take a quick look at a scrolling platform demo of The Wild Wood for the C64. Also: No Christmas decorations! (We can wait until after Thanksgiving 🦃) https://twitch.tv/retrowithmarco See you then!

  11. It doesn't look like I'll be able to get in on the current Challenge for Elevator Action. I'll likely wait for the next game to see whether I jump in. I'll have more time; the EverythingC64 Forum Challenge this month is Boulder Dash and I was never really good at that game.


    If you have a few minutes to spare today around 3pm ET, then I would welcome your presence on my Twitch channel for the replay of my show. It even features VHS footage! (Not mine, but there is VHS footage. Really lol.)

    I didn't have time to post the live stream of my show so I'm just going to post the replay time here. Episode 45 of Retro With Marco featured some news scoring and speedrun records, along with an update on the Intellivision Virtual Expo and a look a the Milton Bradley MBX peripheral for the TI 99/4A computer. I'll be in the chat tomorrow providing additional commentary on the show! https://twitch.tv/retrowithmarco
  13. I forgot to add that I'm on Mac OS. I believe the link referenced above is Windows only, though I could be wrong. I know there is WolfMAME for Mac OS but I have to look into that one.
  14. I haven't touched MAME in about a year and I totally forgot how to get it up and running lol.
