I use small flathead screwdrivers to open up gameboy games. but a dead battery is no reason for a game not working, at least on classic gameboy, it just won't save your game. try blowing it.

The only difference between the trolls here and those doomsday cult people is that there is a definite date(, which is unknown,) at which these people will finally shut up and that is when the AVGN Movie will come out. Doomsday cult people are like "awww nothing happened... hm maybe next week". Only way for trolls not to shut up is to found a "no AVGN movie society" parallel to "flat earth society". If I had a time machine, I'd go back to 31.12.1999 just to watch their dumb faces when nothing happens after the clock strikes midnight.

 

btw. for good monitors, try dumpster diving. Some firms have their own dump, if they happen to do CAD, they are likely to throw away old CRT monitors which are still functional and have A-Class characteristics.

@Mike Matei: Do you happen to know or have a copy of "Spacetrek"? If this movie was just a tiny little bit more cheesy, it could outrank Plan 9 in the "so bad it's good" category. This movie has no logic holes. It has no logic (unintentionally, of course) (in Germany we say "logic holes" instead of plotholes). Best thing is it plays in the future and the space ship's computer is an Atari Stacy, which, at the time the movie was made, already was a rare antiquity of a laptop computer.

One more thing: If you have it, take care of your VCR. My copy has tape of so inferior quality it didn't work with most of my vcrs, only an old Grundig back from the early 80s when they were still being made in Germany (not Japan) did play it.

Just beat the game. No emulator, no cheats. Just a regular NES with a turbo controller (the FourScore's turbo feature, to be exact). Took me 1h15 and 3 or 4 continues. The last boss was at least SOME challenge compared to most of the other bosses (some of these should be in the top 10 easiest video game bosses).

Maybe it helped that I live in Europe (50Hz) and there was no speed corrected port of Silver Surfer here so it played at 5/6 the speed (just a little slower).

 

Btw the ending suckt balls. You get some dialog which you can't cancel (and takes ages) and then you see the Silver Surfer Logo (same as on title screen) with just "THE END" below and a (lame) spiral of stars in the background.

 

Watching your own shots helps a lot detecting walls. It's so unclear at what is background and what is foreground. What were they thinking!?

get yourself a truckload of blank 5 1/4 inch disks, build an X1541 cable and download them all off the internet.

damn even blank disks are hard to get in huge quantities nowadays.

You can of course copy the tape games from the internet to your tape recorder using AudioTAP (check polarity first), but just the copy process let alone testing the games would take a few years.

Wait! There's an SD Card adapter for C64 cartridge port. Get yourself one of these and you can put them all on an SD card. Should even have fastload and 1541 Emu disable (for games without copy protection), so you don't have to wait ages for the games to load.

While you're at it, download some recent megademos to rid yourself off the prejudice that the commodore 64 is primitive.

James could have included "Castle of Deceit" in his Action52 review. It plays just like the Action52 platformers (like Ooze) except you don't have to tap the jump button, you can hold it. But B jumps and A attacks (reverse button bullshit), the graphics are better than A52, the music is worse (has about the same quality as the gameplay in A52. mute the tv for your ears sake) and the game sucks buttfucks.

I played it for maybe 5 minutes. You get the key, you die, you lose the key, the key doesn't come back, you reset the console (or emulator) you get the key, you don't die, you find a door that lets you in, there is a room with a key, you get it, it doesn't let you back out, you shut the fucking thing off. Only good thing about this game is I have to mention the enemies try to avoid your attacks and their AI is pretty decent.

The C64 has S-Video out, so you can connect it to a professional video grabber card. James already did that in earlier reviews. This is not a review, so he didn't connect it.

Also composite (RCA) and RF(UHF), as you mentioned. All models have these 3 outputs.

@DiamentaPrincessa I only get problems with keyboard input when I accidently enable Auto Fire on the joystick. The trouble here is that when plugged in Port 1 I get weird characters and in port 2 the keyboard behaves strange, I ask myself WTF is going on until I notice joystick 2 is on autofire. Since a while I connect joysticks only if I want to play. As I use my C64 mostly to listen to music or watch demos.

2 years, 6 months ago on TMNT Commodore 64

@ThrowntoReality@googlejustsucks Nope, the wall wart transforms it to 9 Volts DC (it says on the box). Now the cable really has just 2 wires running through it. The thing is, that the picture sent to the TV is an RF signal (which is a very high frequency AC current - very high frequency is LITERALLY what VHF stands for btw). You can modulate any AC signal onto a DC signal using decoupling capacitors. The Atari 5200 switchbox also works that way. Also, when the capacitors go bad, which they do after a few decades - hey, that was good quality, today they last 4 years - it can damage the console and/or the TV. thats one of the reasons why it produces sparks when plugging it in, also this is the reason why the picture you got from the 5200 was so bad and also it REALLY caused fires!!! Fuck these boxes. But with a system like that you have no other choice. You're fucked! And if the capacitors die, you might even fry your TV or even worse your whole house!

Sorry for the tech stuff but that's how it works.

Btw I have an Intel Pong console and an Intel TV (there happened to be a import/rebranding company in Germany called "Interelectronics", short Intel.

And I built the maybe smallest PONG Game console on Earth with an AVR. (check Youtube for "Tinypong")

If you need a good nickname, how about "Here's Massacre Mike from CineMassacre"? I mean it would fit without you making an ass of yourself. Most of the movies you review are just a massacre of a movie, and others are movies about or containing massacres and getting video games to glitch out is also like a massacre on the silicon chips.

@djsmaximus 1.: They did not test the game. At all.

2.: The NES has a 7805 voltage regulator with heatsink. The specs say the 7805 can handle 1.5 amperes and afaik has temperature shutoff and overload/short-circuit detection.

Usually the components used in a game cartridge don't really get hot since they're just ROM, Lockout and Mapper, running at 1.77MHz. This leads me to believe they used non-conformant parts which are run outside their specifications (like maybe the ROMS or Mapper (which is custom and not used in any other nintendo game) should be run on 3.3V or so which causes them to get hot and malfunction (games that crash or glitch out)) There must be definitely something wrong with the choice of components, otherwise why did they put so huge capacitors in that cartridge?

Twice the Mega Power... Crap!

My guess is they mean that the Game's ROM is 2 Mbit, meaning it has 256kb. This is pretty average for 1987-89. Mario Bros has 40kb, Mario Bros 3 has 384kb, Kirby has 768kb and Action52 has 2Mbyte (or 16 times the Mega Power lol).Size doesn't matter. So twice the Mega Power is like Atari Jaguar saying "64 Bit"

Looks they were pretty desperate to come up with a buzzword.

I wonder if there is something like "Sinnlos im Weltraum" in english, too.

If you don't know it, Sinnlos im Weltraum is a German resynchronization that makes the characters talk stupid things that match gestures/mimic while its lipsync is better than the original German sync. They also rewrote entire episodes to have different contents, in one they talk 2 straight minutes about coffee and all they get it's just dark black, boiling hot, real tasty, extremely black... and it won't be black if you put milk in it.

They didn't only put care into resync and mimic/gesture matching, they also made sure that whatever they say is nonsensical, as well as perfectly inverting the personalities of the bridge crew. Picard is now a violent hobby-alcoholic, Riker has an IQ of 3 (while a dead rat has one of 10), Worf behaves like a four year old sissy, Data has one bit of storage capacity and can get any one-digit addition to a wrong result within 3 hours.

thanks a lot for the infinite ufo glitch! Beating the game used to take over 2 hours. (and then another 2 hours to get the Sound Select menu)

But you can't climb ladders down with the ufo, so you can be stuck and have to press select. Anyway. Got through the Miniboss marathon at 7-2 w/o losing health.

Btw James should do a review of Kirby's epic yarn in 10 Years or so. This game sucks butt. The music sucks, the controls suck (not that bad, but they are slippery and unresponsive), Kirbys inability to suck sucks, the game is way too easy (Like the smurf rescue. Imagine a game where you can't even die) and the replay value is rock bottom

stupid hd. I thought the times where you had to pause the video right after you started then go take a dump or go shopping so you can watch it without loading intermissions were over... now they're coming back.

Also...am I the only one thinking "Master Chu and the Drunkard Hu"? (no contents connection, but somewhat similar titles).

Should have edited Shit Pickle in, so while all crazy fuck is going on at high velocity (did they shoot the movie in 15fps?), he bounces through the scenes, avoiding attacks n stuff.
