Benjamin Wimmer3,043Back in 1983 the ZX Spectrum classic *Manic Miner* by _Matthew Smith_ was released. 30 years later, it's the game to be played in the 4th _Retro Gamers Challenge_. h/t to @106168709712720711347 for picking this gem. While the targeted platform is ZX Spectrum, feel free to play it on whatever hardware you want and submit your score. As before, the event-feature is misused to define a deadline, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are welcomed - right away till Sun, Mar 10 (7:00 PM, CET). How to participate in this challenge: ○ Fire up your copy of _Manic Miner_ ○ Grab all the items ○ Jump over all the enemies ○ Clear as many levels as you can ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Repeat Lastly, although it's an event of the _Retro Gamers Community_ (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe), sharing it with other gamers out there is of course welcomed. Past challenges #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLi  #2: Chuckie Egg (Amstrad CPC) goo.gl/Yqwcl  #3: Time Bandit (Tandy CoCo) goo.gl/3E6pDRetro Gamers Challenge #4: Manic Miner2013-03-10 19:00:0015  
Benjamin Wimmer3,043Es gibt sicher ein paar Wiener *Ghostbusters* Fans da draußen, oder? Ich schmeiß ganz einfach mal einen unverbindlichen *Kino-HIRL*-Termin für nächsten Donnerstag im Wiener _Gartenbaukino_ raus und wer Lust und Laune hat, einfach melden und/oder vorbeischauen. Das Kino ist bekanntermaßen eh groß genug. Beginn ist 21:00, Karten gibt's um €7,50. Ghostbusters @ Gartenbaukino.at2013-02-21 20:30:002  
Benjamin Wimmer3,043With all the snow and ice outside, why not stay inside and join *Retro Gamers Challenge #3*? This time, it was +John Hattan who had the honor to select a game and he came up with the legendary TRS-80 CoCo classic *Time Bandit* (trs-80.org/time-bandit). As before, the event-feature is misused to define a _deadline_, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are welcomed - right away till *Sun, Feb 3 (7:00 PM, CET)*. How to participate in this challenge: ○ Open the CoCo Java Emulator available at haplessgenius.com/mocha/ ○ Click "Setup" > Tab "Bin" and chose the program "Time Bandit" ○ Press "K" to start a new game ○ Arrow keys to move and Space to fire ○ Shoot enemies, steal treasures, collect keys, jump into the teleport fields and clear as many worlds as possible ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Repeat You can of course also play on your original hardware or any other emulator. Regarding other ports (e.g. for _Amiga_ or _Atari ST_): these ports differ in various aspects, so while I look forward to see screenshots and scores of these versions as well, mixing these and the CoCo won't really be possible. Depending on the number of submissions, there is however a chance to compose a second highscore table :-) Lastly, although it's an event of the Retro Gamers Community (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe) it is defined as a public event, therefore feel free to share and to invite other gamers. _Past challenges_ #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLi  #2: Chuckie Egg (Amstrad CPC) goo.gl/Yqwcl Retro Gamers Challenge #3: Time Bandit2013-02-03 19:00:0010  
Benjamin Wimmer3,043There’s nothing better than starting a new year with a little challenge, right? The game to be played for the *Second Retro Gamers Challenge* was picked by +Jamie Gunn and he opted for *Chuckie Egg* on the _Amstrad CPC_. While the various ports do differ slightly, I would say that all platforms are welcomed although try to go for the _Amstrad CPC_ one if possible. Again, this event is misused to define a *deadline*, so you can start posting your scores - yes, multiple submissions are possible - right away *till Sun, Jan 13 (7:00 PM, CET)*. How to participate in this challenge: ○ Setup your gear (original hardware or emulator) ○ Start a fresh game (Difficulty level 3 on C64) ○ No cheating (cheat codes, use of save-stats) ○ Take a photo/snapshot of your score ○ Share your scores with this event ○ Play again ;-) Lastly, although it's an event of the *Retro Gamers Community* (you can join us here: goo.gl/ttIOe) it is defined as a _public_ event, therefore feel free to share and to invite other gamers. _Past challenges_ #1: Tetris (GameBoy) goo.gl/FGTLiRetro Gamers Challenge #2: Chuckie Egg2013-01-13 19:00:0011

Trust me, if you've got the chance to see Leo DiCaprio's new flick The Revenant then don't hesitate – nope, not even for a fraction of a second – don't hesitate at all and just skip it. You're welcome :-)

Here we go, a (late) follow up to this (goo.gl/EyCiDs) post:

Here's all five versions of Blade Runner in movie poster format
○ Workprint
○ US Theatrical Cut
○ International Theatrical Cut
○ Director's Cut
○ Final Cut

The Workprint has a different aspect ratio, so it looks like there's more scenes but in fact it's the shortest one out of these five versions. Also, it's nice to see what difference the few added frames of blood and gore that was added for the international release made. Lastly, the Final Cut's tweaked coloring becomes visible by comparing it with the other posters.

As always, all five files and more are ready for download over at my GDrive: goo.gl/uvem4i

More posters:
○ Movies by Wong Kar-Wai: goo.gl/IHeXD
○ Alien Quadrilogy: goo.gl/V06VD
○ Evil Deadtrilogy: goo.gl/NLsH... more »

Worms 2, Myst trilogy, X², three Star Trek titles, a Sid Meier collection as well as a couple of other games that I'll add to bigboxcollection.com soon.

WarCraft III, Wing Commander IV and Full Throttle will get traded/sold.

Not bad for a €10 investment, is it?

PS: There's also a full crate of games in jewel case and DVD covers as well as a couple of budget releases that will be passed on to other gamers for a quid or two.

Video game collector moment

IIRC Might and Magic was the first major CRPG series that I've played on PC, starting with Isles of Terra and then the combined forth and fifth which created the World of Xeen with weeks of content. A couple of years later, Mandate of Heaven not only blew my mind but also brought from TES: Daggerfall into the high-res future of CRPGs.

A week ago, I've completed my collection of the series by adding the big box version of Clouds of Xeen to my shelf; below detailed renders of all ten boxes done using my site bigboxcollection.com.

Enjoy :-)

Found time to update my site bigboxcollection.com \o/

As of now, filtering for specific games is enabled again and – a bigger change – adding comments to the single boxes is now possible too. The latter also required the shelf to be ordered by 'last change' which incorporates date added, details updated and comment added.

I've also added limited content management features for myself, e.g. adding/editing descriptions as well as administrative features for comments.

Up next, scanning and uploading all the games that have piled up over the last couple of weeks. And writing more trivia bits for the single games. I might postpone all this to next year though ;-)

This is one of my favorite Roald Dahl stories so I am trepidatious about how it's going to be handled. Sticking with BFG as the title is promising though.

Finding time for keeping my virtual game shelf over at bigboxcollection.com up to date is hard enough so why not just add another layer of information making it an even more impossible task?

Jup, I really got myself into quite some trouble with that and while the technical framework is somewhat up-and-running, I'm still at the beginning of researching aka digging up data. Here's an overview of data I'd like to add:

Finding time for keeping my virtual game shelf over at bigboxcollection.com up to date is hard enough so why not just add another layer of information making it an even more impossible task?

Jup, I really got myself into quite some trouble with that and while the technical framework is somewhat up-and-running, I'm still at the beginning of researching aka digging up data. Here's an overview of data I'd like to add:

Metadata
○ Release info
○ Date of purchase narrowed down to the year at least (right now, the date is either date of purchase or date of the scan added to the site :-/)
○ Money payed for it although this will mostly be private
○ Links to Wikipedia, mobygames for more detailed information
○ Links to gog.com, Steam for purchasing the games
○ Connections to other games (sequel, spin-off, remake,...)

Info bits
○ Description of box, content and feelies
○ Why/how/... added to the collection
○ Rank of the box art in comparison to the rest of my collection

Media
○ The game's title screen (IMHO a very important asset of games)
○ Scans of posters and extras
○ Maybe screenshots, animations and (intro) videos

Further down the road I of course also see possibilities for interaction such as:
○ Adding tags (in my collection; played it)
○ Rating/Ranking
○ Comments

Last but not least, I'm thinking of adding a small blog/journal feature which would allow me to collect short meta/update posts.

Thoughts?___

Mr. Winter-Holiday-Moose stopped by today with a fake plastic birch in tow.

Guess, we'll skip fumbling around with advent calendars and start right away with decorating and eating and decorating and eating and decorating and eating Weihnachtsbehang – which roughly translates to goo.gl/jkKyVK – for the rest of the year.
