    Hello again! Here's the latest on my end:
     
    All of the non-gaming stuff in my life ramped up significantly to where I postponed my Twitch show on a few occasions.
     
    While work was rather hectic, it was still going well. However, it remained hectic throughout these summer months; I had to do a double-take when I realized it was the 2nd half of August.
     
    Unrelated, but no less important: I went for a Wellness Visit (Physical) for the first time in far too long. I went for the proverbial full tune-up including a tetanus shot. (Wow, that part really sucked. I'm not going to sugarcoat it at all. You feel it for 2-3 days, and my body sure felt it.) The good news is that all of my vitals are normal and test results were negative. So let this serve as a reminder: Be sure to get a check-up especially if you're getting up there in age like I am.
     
    I was hoping to stream an episode before an upcoming trip but that won't happen, unfortunately. I realized that I really hadn't kept up on any retro gaming news and world records, and I'd rather get back into the swing of things before getting back on Twitch. I had to put the MGL aside (I started off well but would have likely faded given the list of games chosen for this quarter, but I was having a lot of fun).
     
    I'm glad to see that atari.io is still up and running smoothly and that the community here remains positive. I look forward to joining a Wednesday night chat in the near future.

    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.

    I almost beat Blue Lightning for Jaguar CD in a single sitting.  As it happened, I lost my last plane crashing into an iceberg - pilot error.  I'll never understand why that game gets so much hate.  For me, it looks and plays as well as Total Eclipse/Solar Eclipse on 3DO/Saturn and other games like that.  Also, can we talk about the ripping heavy/hard rock soundtrack?  Its not a very deep game but its a great way to blow through a couple of hours.

    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.

    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.

    Another CRT for me.  This one came for free via the Facebook marketplace.  It's a 9" Sears.  Manufactured July 87.  It has both RF and composite inputs.  The tube is very flat, but not a Trinitron (I don't think).  This one may be my favorite one yet, as the picture quality is really good.
