Backstory: I've been wanting to open more 16-bit games on the show, but those are mostly pretty expensive to acquire. I've done a few already that have been reasonable, like Vegas Stakes and On The Ball, but the selection of games without breaking the bank isn't great. I'd been watching this on eBay, and the asking price was less than market value. It also made sense to grab a baseball game, given that we're getting into the later stages of the current season... so I bit.
Other episode notes: It was nice to see the poster that was included, which was a surprise. The box advertised the Griffey collector card, so I knew about that... but the thing about 16-bit games was that they often came with other bonuses. Unfortunately, many people threw the posters (and the game boxes) away. I admit to doing so a few times during that era. I totally regret it now, 25 years later.
On deck: I have more baseball games that I want to get to for the PlayStation and PlayStation 2, as well as a couple of PlayStation golf games that I didn't get around to when doing the Tiger Woods miniseries earlier this year. That said, Episode 104 is not going to be a sports focus. I have a Wii game that I got for cheap recently, and it's one that I've never played... so that's probably next. It'll be a short episode (less than 10 minutes), as I have no experience with the game.
Finally: Video shooting will, unfortunately, continue to be sporadic due to summertime heat and the need for air conditioning. The noise from the air conditioning unit really spoils the audio, so it's a bad idea to record when it's running. I'd like to shoot one more episode this week to make up for it, while the heat is bearable, but that's not a slam dunk as I also would like to do a PlayStation 4 stream sometime this week, too.
Enjoy the new episode!
