Time for another round up of everything I shared over at the Attract Mode Twitter, this time covering the second half of May of 2021.

NOW PRINTING, COME BACK SOON, THANKS


Much like this time last year, more or less, it’s my first post after yet another grueling semester of grad school. At least it was my very last one; while it’s not in my hands as of yet (I believe it’s still being printed up), I nonetheless now hold a MLIS, aka a Masters in Library and Information Sciences.

Yes, I am now officially a “legit” archivist. Yet I’m undecided as to whether or not I’ll be concentrating on video games, specifically game culture, as one might naturally expect, or lost/obscure media, which comprises the bulk of my non-Attract Mode…

All the notations from before applies here as well, so need to repeat myself. Even though these digests are literally me copying & pasting what I’ve previously written…

Umm… let me think about it, thx

… I’ve thought about it, and the answer is NO

What a cute kitty

A job well done indeed

Yesterday I RT-ed some early footage of Virtua Fighter for the Saturn that I had never seen…


Yet another post about Hudson Soft! That’s three days in a row now!

On Monday I mentioned how the company loved doing live events, yet I didn’t even cite the most famous example of this: the Hudson Caravans. From 1985 to 2000, they ran nationwide tournaments all across Japan during summertime.

The above highlights the Caravan’s heyday, when shmups were all the rage (Hudson tried changing things up a bit, in 1989, with some baseball title that apparently didn’t go over very well). …


It all began with the video above, in which Hardcore Gaming 101 decided to visit an abandoned R&D laboratory for Hudson Soft. It’s not where Bomberman and other beloved Hudson softs were crafted; all that took place at their HQ in downtown Sapporo (before the company moved to Tokyo). Whereas the outskirts is where they developed hardware; perhaps much of the groundwork of the PC Engine were laid inside that very building?

But the even bigger mystery is the mini train system; what’s the story behind that? Though most who know about it are content to simply state that…
