legendoftheriverking asked: This is the best tumblr ever. thank you for sourcing the games you post, not being a secretive dick and keeping it real over all. Thanks for existing!!!!

Thanks for the kind words, gentle follower.

I’ve been trying my best. 

I’ve been eating better and getting more exercise.

As long as we’re on the subject of transparency and putting things out into the open, here’s a fun little secret I’ll let you all in on.

Do you see that lousy green Div that contains everything else on my blog?

Well, check out the background image:

It’s the screen portion of a Game Boy jpeg that I found on google.com five years ago. Pretty neat, huh?

Anonymous asked: do you have any personal favorite images from the ones you've posted?

Yeah, here are some of them:

Anonymous asked: Yeah you just keep going as you are. This stuff is fantastic and never gets boring. Cheers, hugh

Hey there/thanks. Here is the reductive and poorly-written response that I started typing last night. I am Dr. FMTwnsMrtyTmblr and I&#8217;ve got the prescription for gaming fun:Almost everything I post is taken from Japanese adventure games, mostly for the NEC PC-88 and PC-98. Occasionally I&#8217;ll post FM Towns or Sharp X68000 stuff, but it&#8217;s a bigger pain in the ass for me to capture video from those emulators. ALSO: Since August I&#8217;ve been putting game titles in each post&#8217;s permalink.The following is a list of fun and relevant links that may help some of you supplement your personal knowledge adventures into the world of pornographic Snatcher derivatives. http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/JPNcomputers/Japanesecomputers.htmhttp://www.hardcoregaming101.net/doujingames/doujingames.htmhttp://www.hardcoregaming101.net/snatcher/snatcher.htmhttp://www.hardcoregaming101.net/policenauts/policenauts.htmhttp://www.hardcoregaming101.net/yuno/yuno.htmhttp://www.hardcoregaming101.net/truelove/truelove.htmhttp://www.hardcoregaming101.net/jigokunorenshuu/jigokunorenshuu.htmhttp://www.hardcoregaming101.net/princesstomato/princesstomato.htmhttp://pixelmenu.22web.org/http://fullmotionvideo.free.fr/phpBB3/index.php
To answer your other question: I live close enough to NYC get there extremely easily but not close enough to be willing to regularly pay for the transportation. Here&#8217;s an open offer to anyone who&#8217;s still reading this: Pay for my train ticket and I will briefly meet up with you in Manhattan and show you a store that has a boxed FM Towns Marty for sale. The place is cramped and unpleasant to be in, and the people who work there are often flippant, so I&#8217;d suggest not asking them any questions. Also they won&#8217;t know anything about the Fm Towns Marty or how much they&#8217;re selling it for. Also avoid making eye contact with me. Also avoid talking, I usually don&#8217;t have much to say and I&#8217;m tired all the time. I don&#8217;t think we&#8217;ll have time for coffee. Maybe. I don&#8217;t know. Sincerely, your only true virtual friend,-FM Towns &#8220;Things are tough all over&#8221; Marty
