Posted under 2600, Bobby is Going Home, Review, Brazilian, CCE, Atari


My favorite cartridge label for this game, since it best sums up the chaos within.

SPECS:
Game:  Bobby Is Going Home
Genre: Platformer
Year: 1983
Publisher:  CCE/Taiwan Cooper
Developer: Bit Corporation
Rarity (according to AtariAge):  Undetermined
Controls:  Joystick
Number of Players:  1 player
Average Cost:  approx. $5 - $15+ (depending on label variation)
Also Available On:   Only for the Atari 2600 or similar VCS consoles

Tagline/Description: "Bobby feels that the world is so beautiful. He feels his life [is] perfect. But this day as he [is] going home, he meets many strange troubles."

Just over two years ago, I wrote an article about how my Atari 2600 collecting had branched out of North America and into Brazil.  To summarize, there are several Brazilian 2600 titles that were not released in North America, but are playable on NTSC based systems. Of the handful of games that I have acquired, one of my favorites is a little 2-D platformer called Bobby Is Going Home.  Let's take a look!

Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana), Shawn (GrayGhost81), and returning guest, Pam (host of Cannot Be Tamed and Media Mavens) as they discuss a lesser known title from a well-known developer.  This month's Playcast plunges into Febrauray's site playthrough of Murdered: Soul Suspect, which was developed by Square Enix.  Opinions of this game typically range from both ends of the spectrum, so how will our cast of gamers fall on it?  Is it worth the few bucks a used copy commands, or are you better off leaving it on the shelf?  Did Rich enjoy the overall narrative?  Did Pam take issue with the combat?  And did Shawn enjoy making little cat sounds?  Be sure to tune in to this episode of the RF Generation Playcast to find out! 

As always, we are happy to hear your thoughts on this game on our discussion page (linked below). We will respond to your comments and are always happy to discuss the game more. We hope you enjoy our show.  Please be sure to rate and write a review of the show on iTunes to help us increase our listenership. Thanks for the listen!

Posted under Playcast, Secret of Mana, SNES, playthrough, January, 2017


Join RF Generation Playcast hosts, Rich (singlebanana) and Shawn (GrayGhost81) as they discuss one of the most beloved RPGs on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Secret of Mana. Join these playthrough gurus as they review their maiden voyages through the game and try to determine what makes classic gamers dote upon it so. Topics discussed include: the general story, the revolutionary menu system, upgrades, general enemy and boss battles, and of course, the musical score. Having recently played both of Square's "Secret" SNES titles, Rich takes a few minutes to discuss the verbal war that often rages between Secret of Mana and Secret of Evermore fans and whether or not either argument holds water. Which game is better, and would either of our hosts recommend this particular title?  Be sure to listen to this episode of the RF Generation Playcast to find out!

Our annual donation drive starts today!  Be sure to hit that donation button and show this great site some love.  And don't forget, for every $10 you donate, you will receive a ticket for this year's raffle!

Keep in mind that RF Generation is a free, no advertising or pop-ups, not-for-profit site. All database contributions come from member submissions and our unpaid staff works hard to update and improve database content, keep front page articles fresh and informative, and produce podcasts for your listening pleasure. Unfortunately, the costs associated with running and maintaining this site are not free (...or cheap) and we need YOUR help to keep our site moving forward into 2018. All donations will go directly to our server and site improvement account. This year our goal is to raise at least $1500 by the end of February. I will provide updates on the front page throughout the month to help monitor how close we are to obtaining our goal and will also thank all donors by name for their contributions (donation amounts will be kept private).

Thank you for your continued love and support,

The staff at RF Generation

Posted under fundraiser, fund drive, 2017, donations


Tomorrow, we officially kick off our annual RF Generation Community Donation Drive (though all donations today also count toward our total raised!).  Our goal this year is to raise at least $1500 by February 28, 2017. This money will be used to pay server costs, site improvements, convention advertising, and any additional funds will also be put toward future hosting expenses. We hope that you will consider contributing to keep RF Generation a free, fun, and useful site for yourself, other members, and those who haven't been fortunate enough to find us yet. We only ask that you donate what you can and even a small amount, like a few bucks, goes a long way and is very appreciated.

Donations are accepted via PayPal and you can donate by following this link:  http://www.rfgeneration.c...m/index.php?action=paypalPLEASE be sure to PM me your RF Generation handle and the email address you used to donate (or include your screen name with your donation via PayPal) so that we can thank you on the front page and determine your number of raffle tickets; only your handle will be used and all donation amounts are private. 

Speaking of raffle tickets, for those of you who donate at least $10, you will be entered into a raffle for some fantastic prize lots donated by our generous members.  We are currently still gathering donations and putting them into lots, so as soon as these are finalized, they will be posted. If any of you are interested in donating prizes for this year's raffle, please reach out to singlebanana via PM.  Rules for this raffle are listed below. 

Thank you for your donations to the site and we hope that RF Generation will remain your #1 choice for tracking your collection for years to come!

__________________________________________________________________________

RAFFLE RULES:
For every $10 donated, that donor will receive a ticket for the raffle (i.e. if you donate $40, you will receive 4 entries). At the end of the donation drive, names will be randomly drawn from the entries (drawing to be videoed) and winners will be allowed to select the lot of their choosing based on draw order. For instance, the first name drawn will select their lot first, the second name drawn will select their lot second, and so on; the last name drawn will receive the final, remaining lot. Participants will only be allowed to win one (1) lot, so if your name is drawn more than once, you will retain your highest selection position and another name will be selected.  Winners should expect to pay the cost of shipping for their items unless the prize donor is willing to ship for free.
