Played through every stage in Hydro Thunder on N64. Easy, Medium, Hard and Bonuses.
What a beautiful looking game!
Was using infinite boost for some serious speed 8)

Awesome game! I played through the game on the Dreamcast and loved it.

Ooh, I bet that version is even better! 8)



I tried playing Castlevania 64. Was not impressed with the 3D or controls and only went a little past the first boss. Some oversized skeleton. I really wanted to like this game :'(
I'm going to keep playing though. All the way to the end and then the 2nd one for N64. Too bad they weren't nearly as good as their 2D predecessors.

I'm playing Epic Pinball at work. Classic from 1993 w/ some cool tables. The Android table is pretty awesome.
The gap between flippers is a little wide imo but it's great.


My high score so far :p

FromSoftware is my favorite game developer of all time, so last night I decided to go back to where it all started for me and I fired up King's Field for the PS1. This is basically the series that led to Dark Souls and I absolutely love it!

Going back to an early 3D game on the PS1 is never easy and it took a little while to get used to the controls again but eventually muscle memory kicked in and it was just like old times. Looks much prettier than I'm used to on my 4K TV too. ;D

I hear that! Been trying to play through some old ones on the PS1 myself and it looks laughably bad. Crazy, since back then it was state of the art




Been playing Llamatron on the 2 pack Minter release from AA. I couldn't get past level 19 but here's a high score I'm pretty sure will never be beaten:

My parents got my son a raspberry pi for Christmas but haven't had time to play with it till now ...

Stuck retropie on it and played some good old NHL94 lol. I've ordered another Pi for my 3D printer, but now I may need to order another just for playing more retro games as my son wants me to transform his into a Pipboy.
