[Let's Play] Party Like its 1987! Let's Experience the Atari Computer! Fort Apocalypse!

This is less of a proper review or Let's Play but it is a good 20 minutes of me showing the game in the first video and talking about mechanics, and in the second I actually complete it.

Its a hard but beatable game.  Honestly my biggest issue was getting my tape copy to load on my tape drive, but I may come back sometime and describe that particularly painful sequence of events.


There we go!  I am using the Altirra emulator as I get the best and most color accurate results on it compared to my actual 130xe on a composite monitor.

And its not a full review/overview of the game showing the box and manual and media, but here is the cover of the box alongside the 2 other programs I purchased alongside this one:

Pathfinder Beginner Box Campaign Comic Report Part 7

Its been a while as I have mostly been posting quasi Twitter like updates on my game group's Facebook page that nobody cares about.

But Pathfinder continues:








My players couldn't defeat the Bandit Commander and beat a hasty retreat, burning up a VERY critical thing.  Thinking quickly and taking some future ideas, this is what our game has turned into!  A battle for the future and the past of Britannia!  And considering the 2 80s CRPGs I am taking ideas from (Bard's Tale and Ultima) have both had time travel elements it all sort of works together.

Besides a cigar chomping English talking Gorilla Man with Power Fist is waaay cooler than any silly Goblin...

Pathfinder Beginner Box Campaign Comic Report Part 6

This is a short one but it was a short session.



I've been a mixture of depressed, angry, and lazy of late so I haven't really been in the mood to update this blog.  I do have some project ideas I might work on, and the long post explaining what really got me down the most.
