28 02 2010


Finally the new Blog at is ready to use. Also the flyer is finished and will be used at the next meetings. The Forum seems to be up again, and the actual game: Switchblade II is a great game.

I managed to score 79800 so far, being a little bit behind Xerus and SSB.


The flyer is also finished, as well as a slideshow of pictures, I bought a digital photo frame for. Looks nice, and a lot of greate memories. During my trainings I manged a new record in scored goals: I did a 9-3 against the computer.


Also the WGL flyer is finished.


I started to play Dragon Blade on the Wii. It’s a nice game due to the wii controls of the light sword.

Not long ago MF was looking really bad. But now finally the new case is finished and also a new Disk drive is build in. Next will be to replace the big network card by a Hydra, I will get from SSB next week.

New round: #3/11: Switchblade 2

27 02 2010

We play this game already a week, but because the forum was down, I post it today.

Game: Switchblade 2

Have a look at our partnerside: Atarimania

Switchblade 2

We start at level 1, no other rules so far.

Xerus wins round #3/10: Pacmania

27 02 2010

Unfortunately this round we had once again problems with teh atari-formum. For some days the forum was down. So great news, that the forum is up again. Great job guys.

We started this round with Hacman. I made a mistake, cause originally Hacman 2 was elected, but anyway, the game was not loved by the players. So after 2 days we decided to change to Pacmania.

ThorN’s opinion on:Pacmania average
The game was nice, even the gameplay is limited of course. The ST version of Pacmania is very playable and the game spend some fun. The music is ok, and the graphics are average. The 3D scrolling is very good.

The master of ST Gaming Xerus once again won the round. SSB was motivated and scored 2nd. So he avoided that Ragstaff who ended 3rd pass by me (scored 4th) in the season ranking.

Even that we changed the game, and the forum was down, 6 people participated, a big success and thanks to all of them.

Retro Weekend 07/2010

15 02 2010


Saturday at the Wiesbaden Gaming Lab meeting, maSTer64 joined our forces for the first time. Thanks to the HomeCon it looks that we are now 4 retro gamers in the Rhein-Main area who meet regulary.

The pizza at the meeting was also very good, but the highlite was my triumpf in the Blip Tournament.  Wizard said at the HomeCon that it was only luck that I won the tournament, cause he lost in the half finals 9-10 against OiZombie. So I used the chance to show him, that he was wrong of couse.

It was also the first time we could used the new WGL blog, to post the results of the meeting. We also finished our WGL flyer, so it now up to us to do some advertisment, and hopefully we will grow a little bit. With 5 or 6 players it would be possible to play Grenzüberschreitung, Multi Cervi and Checkered Flag.


Ragstaff postet, that scoring in Pacmania based on eating the bonus over and over again, that demotivates me a lot.  I like games where your challenge is to reach the higher level, or see new parts of a level, but doing the same stuff again and again and not going up to a higher level is not my kind of game. So at least the challenge is worth to beat the score of the others.

In the IRC we managed to finalize the texts for the STOT flyer. I will put the stuff now on the STOT blog.


During the training, I started to try to get the ball hight from the side into the penalty box. I have to train a little bit more, but one nice goal was a good motivation.
