ARCADES

Ah the arcades.
Where many memories were made and lots of money was “lost”.
I recall playing Space Invaders at our local roller skating rink, along with such games like Pacman, Phoenix, Galaxian Pleiades, Frogger and Scramble. This was the late 1970’s-early ’80’s and I was still in primary (elementary) school and my chosen school sport was roller skating.
Every Friday afternoon, filling the last 2 or 3 classes we would all head off to the local roller skating rink which was very close to our school with our teacher. It was always really alive and kicking – and noisy!
Great music of the era with the noise of all the kids from our school and others. The noise would always drain out the arcade games we would be playing – and speaking of which, we were not specifically permitted to play but somehow got away with it – most of the time.
The following posts document some of these wonderful coin-ops which gobbled up my shiney coins.

Just like Pacman did.

ああ、アーケード。
多くの思い出が作られ、たくさんのお金が「失われた」場所。 パックマン、フェニックス、ギャラクシアンプレイアデス、フロッガー、スクランブルなどのゲームと一緒に、地元のローラースケートリンクでスペースインベーダーをプレイしたことを覚えています。 これは1970年代後半から80年代初頭で、私はまだ小学校にいて、選んだ学校のスポーツはローラースケートでした。
毎週金曜日の午後、最後の2つか3つのクラスを埋めて、私たちは皆、先生と一緒に学校に非常に近い地元のローラースケートリンクに向かいました。 それはいつも本当に生きていて、蹴っていました-そして騒々しいです!
私たちの学校や他の子供たちのすべての騒音を伴う時代の素晴らしい音楽。 ノイズは常に私たちがプレイするアーケードゲームを枯渇させます-そしてそれについて言えば、私たちは特にプレイすることを許可されていませんでしたが、どういうわけかそれをやめました-ほとんどの場合。
次のポストは、私の輝くコインをむさぼり食ったこれらの素晴らしいコイン操作のいくつかを文書化しています。

パックマンのように。

Some examples of 8bit computers common in my youth.

When I was in year 11, our High School had a computer room. Computers weren’t as common as they are now so it wasn’t really popular so just a few kids would go visit it during our lunch breaks or if we had an empty class.
As far as I can remember,we only had 2 computers – and they were both an Apple IIe.

Although they were supposed to be used for educational purposes, we played games on them.
I can’t remember all of them but i do recall playing Conan and some adventure games.
One of the guys had his own Apple IIe at home so he would copy some games for us to use in the computer room.
1 or 2 years later, I would own my own computer – but it wouldn’t an Apple IIe.

An Apple IIe which we had 2 in High School.


Probably the first kind of video game I ever experienced.

CONSOLES

ENGLISH

One night, my Dad bought home a Black & White TV game console. I have fairly vague memories of it but it was made by Tempest. It included 2 controllers and 2 plastic toy guns to shoot boxes or whatever.
It came with a few packed-in games – most of which were variations on the popular Pong game by Atari and some shooting games which made use of the fore-mentioned toy guns.
It wasn’t until around 1982 or 1983 until I got my first real game console… The ColecoVision.

In this section on PY Kobo Games, we will get into the game consoles that we had in our youth and those we currently possess. Yuko still has all the consoles she and her family had over time.

We will also cover the modernized “miniaturized” versions of some of these consoles which we have bought.

Please enjoy!
