KevinO, here. I finally got around to registering for Ferg's Forums! Here are a few facts about me:
*Grew up in Iowa. Yes, if you build it, Kevin Costner will come. *I now live in the Cincinnati Metro area. *I am married and my wife and I have two little girls. *My eldest daughter's (3 years old) favorite Atari game seems to be Jungle Hunt *My wife and I (well, mostly me, but the wife indulges as well) are Mario nuts. Date night sometimes consists of getting the girls to bed, and then getting a few drinks and playing Super Mario Bros. 1, 3, or the new 3D World for WiiU.
Currently, I am playing a lot of Star Wars Battlefront. With all the DLC out now, the game is extremely fun. I also just got a bunch of Resident Evil games for my birthday, so I will have to check those out in-between Battlefront and the 2600 and NES games.
Favorite 2600 game? Hmmm...as a kid, I always had the most fun with Berzerk!
Besides Ferg, I also try to listen to Sprite Castle for C64 games, No Quarter, and the Atari XEGS podcast.
Merry Christmas! I also live in the Cincinnati Area.
Check out the Atari 2600 Games I created! Shield Shifter*, Strip-Off*, K.C.'s Crazy Nightmare!, Strip-Off 2, Handy Pick Hank, and UFO. I also created some Game Boy Advance, Android, Windows and DOS games. My top game was/is A.I. Wars (the insect mind), a game where you program a Cybug and send it into battle! Also, check out my program Text Adventure Studio ALL FREE! * look for these on the Atari Flashback 5, 6, 7 and Portable. Improved portable ROMs can also be found on my site.
