I was away this past weekend on sort of a retreat to visit my parents. On my retreat, I’ve been working on a few things that are to come for this blog in the upcoming week (maybe more). I’ve been in touch with the guys who run MANville, and as mentioned on part 2 of last week’s podcast, I will be on the show presenting a special segment on beers. I’ve actually been spending a lot of money for “research,” and it’s going to be something that everyone, especially beer drinkers, will enjoy.

I was huge into Mortal Kombat II when it was in the arcades. I used to go constantly to the mall and to Burt’s Sportsplex in middlegare to play it. The difficulty dip settings on the machines in the mall were set much lower than at Burt’s, so, if there were very few people playing at the mall, I could easily get to Kintaro. There were some other regulars too. There was BEV Lowes, a heavy set guy who worked atRead More
We were playing Super Nintendo one day at a neighbor’s house, and this kid (TY) that nobody really hung out with much brought over a game called Baseball Simulator 1000. It was a standard baseball game where the gimmick was that there were special weapon pitches and batters. Ohh yeah, and the players were robots. So it was a pretty wacky game.
