Fifth Game Complete - Cratermaze for the TG16 (2014)

This is Cratermaze for the TG16. It's kind of a Bombermanish puzzle game. I can't believe I finished it. At level 15 I was pretty tired of it but kept going. At level 30 after defeating the first mini-boss I was about to quit but kept going. Finally at level 60, I beat the main boss. It wasn't too bad but very repetitive. Here is the final boss battle with credits.

Fourth Game Complete - Titan Attacks (2014)

Now here's a game it took a little while to beat. This is Titan Attacks. A great retro looking shooter. This is Space Invaders with power ups and boss fights. I really suck at it but finally managed to get to the last world but could never get over the hump. Then my hard drive crashes on my laptop and I lose my save. A couple days ago I re-install it and bam I made it to level 100 and then beat the final boss. Unfortunately, the game starts back on level 1 once you complete it like

Third Game Complete (2014) Torchlight 2

This completion was a long time coming. I started Torchlight 2 back in 2013 with my wife. She didn't like it alot but kept playing to entertain me lol. Finally this week she said "Just complete it, don't wait for me so I decided to give it a go. I was at the very end of Act III so I was able to finish it in one sitting. On my Youtube channel I also have the last few boss battles as well.   Torchlight II is a Hack n' Slash / Action RPG in the same family as Diablo III. As most, th

Second Game Complete (2014) Final Fantasy ATB

The second game I beat for 2014 is Final Fantasy: All the Bravest. It was definitely a swipe-fest but I don't have the hate most people do for it. Even though it has the Final Fantasy name, it really isn't that great an entry for the series. You play through a series of battles traveling to various locales to do said battles. One thing it does have going for it are the retro graphics and Final Fantasy music. And here is the video showing the defeat of the final boss and end credits, enjoy.

First Game Complete (2014) Legend of the Red Dragon

LEGEND OF THE RED DRAGON (LORD)     After 20+ years of playing LORD, I have finally defeated the Red Dragon. If you don't know what LORD is don't worry it resides in a time long forgotten on a strange contraction call a BBS (Bulletin Board System). Before the internet us geeks communicated, congregrated on BBSes. One of the favorite all time BBS doors was Legend of the Red Dragon. It's a text adventure / role-playing game of sorts where you go out into the forest to kill creatures,

Posted My First Pickups Video On Youtube

I thought I would never do it but I've gone and done it. I've posted my first pickups video. Last week I ordered a Blue Snowball Mic from Amazon and it came in on Friday. Mustering my nerve I went and created a video where I actually show myself and talk. I was nervous as hell at first but once I got a few minutes in, it got easier.   You can watch it here:

New Year... New Plan

Welp last year I was only able to beat 7 games. Pretty piss poor I must say, but we'll see how 2014 treats me. Also last week I started my very own You Tube channel. One of my goals is to try and get 50 subscribers. We'll see how it goes.   Link to Channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrf2z9JwtfrEeqJYxFv-BvQ If link doesn't work, search Classic Contagious Gaming

Apple IIgs Scart Cable

A few months ago I picked up three Sony PVM monitors 2 20" and 1 14". One of 20" monitors has a few issues but the other looks great. The 14" also is great but lacks RGB. I recently purchased an Apple IIgs SCART cable from Roger on Vintageware and got it yesterday. I must say I am very impressed and the Apple II games have never looked better. I didn't get a chance to snap a pic of a GS game but here is Dragon Wars for the Apple IIe/c. Below is Roger's site to order one.       Apple

Me Playing Hookie This Week From Work Sorta....

Welp as I said I've been off this week because on Monday I had the right tonsil removed. There was a sizable growth on it Thank goodness it turned out not to be cancer but some kind of infection so lots of antibiotics and ice cream for me. Also thank goodness Grim Dawn Alpha came out this week so I've been playing a lot of it. If you have ever played Titan Quest you'll know what type of game it is. Grim Dawn Was a Kickstarter project from some of the guys who created Titan Quest. This ha

Seventh Game Complete - Word Realms

Another game bites the dust. This one is call Word Realms. It's a word game where you go on an adventure to defeat the evil Dark Lord who is terrorizing a kingdom. This was a successful Kickstarter project from last year.   Here's a quote from there website that wraps it up nicely. "A single-player roleplaying video game where your weapons are words. "   You travel around on a map completing quests, clicking on destinations and defeating foes with words. Each area also has a boss. Th

Sixth Game Complete - Akai Katana Xbox 360

Well I went to Gamestop today and picked up a few games. One was Akai Katana. I had heard great things about it and wanted to try it out even though i've never been good at those type of games. Those type of games are "Bullet Hell Shooters". Millions of bullets coming at you in a certain pattern and it's your job to figure it out how to avoid taking damage. Akai Katana isn't very long. I was able to beat it in under an hour but it's never about longevity with this type of shooters but pl

Bit Dungeon - Game i've been playing

Thought I would chime in on a game i've been playing on and off for the last few weeks. The game is called Bit Dungeon. It's a mix of Legend of Zelda dungeons (nes) and Rogue. You basically explore a dungeon level collecting money, gear and health / magic potions and fight various monsters. At the end of each level you fight a boss. Unfortunately there are only a few different bosses so they end of repeating when you get in a few levels. It's currently available for the iOS and also can

Fifth Game Beat - Dungeon Siege

Welp my first RPG of the year that I've completed and I can honestly say it's been a blast. I've played Dungeon Siege multiple times over the years but never completed it and I can finally mark if off my list. It took a little over 23 hours for me to complete.   Here's an introduction from Moby Games: Dungeon Siege is a direct descendant of the grandfather of all of today's Hack'n'Slay "roleplaying" games, Diablo. In Dungeon Siege, you control one or more heroes in a gigantic 3D modeled f

Fourth Game Beat - Mystery House

Mystery House has been deemed the first graphic adventure. Released in 1980 by Ken and Roberta Williams of On-line Systems, later to be called Sierra Online. Not much I can say about the game. You basically have to work your way around the house and figure out who the killer is before they get you.   Here is a small description via Moby Games: Mystery House is a four-color interactive fiction adventure game that places the player in a Victorian mansion with seven other people. As the pl

Third Game Beat - Transylvania

Here's a game I played a ton in high school when there was free time in the computer lab. Again i never beat it. Transylvania was released in 1982 for the Apple II computer system and many more through out the years. I decided to play the 1986 double hi-res version for the Apple II.   Here's an Intro via Moby Games: Transylvania is an adventure with optional graphics, and a VERB NOUN interface. Two weeks ago, Princess Sabrina suddenly vanished and remained unseen since. King John the Go

Second game beat (Dark Lord)

The first thing I want to mention is ... yeah i cheat. I use faqs, solutions and walk-throughs. I enjoy the experience and story of the game more than trying to figure out puzzles. With that out of the way lets move onto the game. Dark Lord was released in 1987 for the Apple II and Commodore 64 computers. I remember playing this game as a teenager when it came out but never got through it. I decided to do something strange this play-through. I played through the Commodore 64 version and Appl

First Game Beat (Zombie Driver)

Welp yesterday after i typed up my entry explaining what i would be doing this year, i was able to Finish Zombie Driver. The game came out in 2009 for the PC. I've always enjoyed mission based driving games and this one is no exception. You basically complete 17 missions and along the way rescue various citizens who are trapped in buildings through out the city. You also get to destroy zombies in all manner of ways. You can ram them, shoot them with machine guns as well as roast them with a

New Years resolution and such....

Well i figured it was time to update my blog since i haven't done it in a long time (last July). I will get back to Rogue entries as some point probably just picking random Atari Age members to be my characters in the game. In the meantime i decided to make a New Years Resolution. I have over 2000 games in my collection and have only beaten maybe 1% of them. So this year is the year i hunker down and see how many i can beat before December 31st 2013. I will be playing games from 1979 - 2013

Playing Rogue Day 9

I was able to play two characters tonight: First up was accousticguitar: Unfortunately on level 4, I got surrounded by slimes and they did me in.   Next up was Rockin Kat: I got pretty far with this one. I was able to stay away from rattlesnakes and found leather armor that I enchanted once so i didn't have to worry about Aquator's destroying it. I also found a longsword and enchanted it. On level 10 i was able to kill 2 quaggas. Unfortunately i had over 1100 gold but accidently ra
