It has been a wee while since there was an official schedule, mainly due to continued puppy disruption. I am going to start scheduling again from this week and try to get Peanut into a routine of resting at the correct time for me to stream.
In this first week of the New Plan™ I will be streaming things that need less dedicated concentration for the most part, in the hopes of ironing out any problems with his new routine. To that end this week will start with a quiz (the last one to use the quiz engine we have used before, I will chat about that when we are getting ready to start) and the rest of the week I will play retro games while chatting about my own Z80 computer project.
Monday: Quiz nite!
Tuesday – Thursday: Classic gaming and chat about building the Z80 retro computer
This week I am going to revisit a game series that I enjoyed a few years back – Trine. I played the first two games in the series solo but the games can be played co-operatively so I would like to involve other players this time. In case you don’t know the game is a sort of puzzle, platformer, physics thing. If you have Trine or Trine 2 then come along and have a go.
Wednesday night is another co-operative game, our semi-regular zombie fest in Left4Dead2 with special guests. Thursday is another classic gaming challenge, this time I am aiming for a high score in one of my favourite Golden Era arcade games – Missile Command. Rounding off the week with the continuation of Resident Evil 7.
Well – we made this month’s donation goal, the server is paid for, some HDMI cables were added to the HDMI matrix that Beni donated a while back and I ordered a new wireless mic set to replace the one that went up in smoke.
Next month’s goal will be at least in part to cover the wireless set upgrade and the server bill as usual. The next pay for pain goal will be dreamt up soon.
Which brings me to this week’s schedule. Monday evening 8pm to 11pm UTC, 3 hours guaranteed, all Sonic games. If you have a favourite Sonic game that you would like me to play then let me know on stream (I don’t have them all but I have most of the emulatable ones). We will start with the Megadrive Sonic 1 and 2 and go from there…
The middle of the week we will be exploring the galaxy in Elite: Dangerous. I have ideas for non-combat co-operative sessions and I hope you will join us.
Friday night I am hoping we will complete The Subject, making way for another new FFN game I have waiting in the wings.
After a disrupted week last week and a long bonus stream on Saturday I estimate there are one or two streams left of finishing the B-17F model. The main paintwork is to be done as well as applying the decals and sealing the model. The remaining days will be the start of a new retro challenge series, a possible Old Fart versus Young Person™ night and the continuing of the survival puzzle game, ‘The Subject’ on Friday.
Monday & Tuesday: Completing the F-17F “Memphis Belle”
Hey kids, you know what is cool? Video Games! I will be whipping out my Big One™ and getting down to some classic arcade game action as the year comes to a close. I am working on a video about shoot ’em up games so I will be playing SEU games this week to get some footage and also have fun, of course :-).
It is a mixed bag this week. A couple of nights of classic (retro) gaming, another of the ever-popular party game nights and a chance for you to help shape the fab.80 project with a look at firmware and expansion cards.
Monday: Classic Gaming – Hamish’s High Score Challenge
Tuesday: Let’s design an 8-bit computer system
Wednesday: Party Game Night! Come along and join in the fun
