3546 - Han Vs. Tommy (A Star Wars/PR Crossover)

Tommy spots Chewbacca and immediately assume it's one of Rita's monsters. He tries to morph, but gets shot in the head by Han Solo because he always shoots first.


3545 - Arcade Classics: Super Breakout and Battlezone (GB)


And also Super Breakout... meh.

3544 - PRRR Delayed One Week

Just a bit of a quick heads-up that I'm pushing back the next Reflections Redux entry another week, so it'll be posted on the 29th instead of the 20th. I've got something else in mind for Friday and don't want the two items to clash.

And that's about it.

3543 - Arcade Classics 4: Defender/Joust (GB)

Youtubers will have to wait a couple days, but for the DM and blog visitors, two early bird reviews.

One today, one tomorrow.

3542 - State Of The Blog: Change Of Plans

Quite a bit of ground to cover after the break, so let's get to it.

The complete "daily" Ataribox progress chart as depicted above, recorded up to just now, I made an effort to check the numbers at least once or twice a day. And whereas it took Ataribox an astounding single day to shatter the two million dollar mark in its crowdfunding, it took them two weeks to come close to the three million mark... though, I'd imagine that mark will be surpassed by Monday morning if not sooner.

Yes, I'm that specific.

And given that they're limited on stock - stock for a product that doesn't exist beyond a so-called prototype phase, don't forget - I'd be (mildly) surprised if this hits four million by the time this whole campaign is done, let alone reach the Ouya amount of eight and a half million. The two occasions where the number has actually DROPPED also leads me to believe this isn't going to be entirely smooth sailing.

Suddenly, I no longer have the urge to do a video on this Ataribox thing... and it's too bad. I had a fun little idea to play around with regarding stretch goals and things of that nature, as well as toss out a couple potential ideas on how to make this thing work, but honestly, folks? I'd much rather do another E3 video.


3540 - Super Game Entertainment System (SNES Clone System)

An overview of a cheap Super NES clone system that is cheap and probably not a good purchase even if you're looking for cheap SNES clone systems.

3539 - WWE Now Has An Official Happy Lana Day T-Shirt

What a T-Shirt it is... Screenprinted "Happy Lana Day" logo not included...

This is almost like Ataribox...

3538 - Another Crisis For DC...

You know... the more Crisis things you throw out, the less I'm inclined to care.

Seriously, this is starting to feel as worthless and shallow as the comic book death.

3537 - Autodesk Sketchbook Test 4: The Drizzling Shits


For anyone who wants a quick image to express how bad the latest WWE or Impact Wrestling program happens to be. Or for whatever show you deem is worthy of such branding.

This was quick and dirty; mostly to test out the writing abilities. Suffice it to say that I'd have better results writing on paper and capturing the image on camera.
