  1. Tecmo Bowl game footage with commentary

    CHI pounds the 9ers. San Fran is one of the hardest offense to master, when you have to play vs really skilled guy (ie: not random joe's off the street). To Ben's credit in these last couple videos, this is his first time facing me with Miami and San Fran. These are teams we've gotten really good at shutting down. He'd played random guys and had a lot of success with MIA/SF, but he got an education here on why they are tough to win with.

    Indy vs Miami. Sometimes this match-up is a deal where neither defense is equipped to stop the other team. Played some text book D with Indy, and the guy controlling Miami was nearlyu sharp enough to hang in there. Eventually Eric Dickerson wrecks the Miami D, and that's that!

    This is a beat-down put on LA who was controlled by a pretty good player.

    Cleveland vs Dallas Some late Gerald McNeil kick return antics make the finish to this game a bit more interesting that it should have been.

    With a lot of tournaments going on, we've been focused on just 89 USA Tecmo. I'm itching to conclude our 7th season though which is a USA/Japan mix.

    3 part Denver vs San Fran game. Phone stopped recording a couple times, so we eventually went to facebook live for the finish.

    Had a great 2-player game LA vs Seattle(Me) recently. Played my buddy who got a 3rd place finish at 2016 Omaha tourney. Game goes down to the wire with a late field goal attempt for the win. In the comments section I break down a lot of team and player stats. LA is not generally a team I think is very good. They have a lot of flaws. Field position was key for LA to keep the pressure on. See the DEN/LA game a few posts below. LA gets exposed pretty easily in that game.

    Yeah I can submit the podcast there. I'll have to create an account there.

    It's OK. It links to Itunes easy enough, and for like $10 bucks a month I have a lot of storage and bandwidth. For the small audience I have its perfect.

    There's already a 2017 version of TSB. Not sure if anyone has made a 2017 release for the original Tecmo though. See the home page. http://tecmobowl.org/

    Agree with this statement. Facebook and twitter are littered with posts after Tecmo Cle/Tecmo Madison/etc with people who had no idea these events occur.

    I think it's a great that people had to decide "am I doing Cleveland or Dallas this weekend?". So many tournaments in Ohio over a relatively short span(for example) may lend to there being less top level competition in general at each event, and making them less prestigious. The weaker field may indeed be good to help the less experienced player have a decent showing...and perhaps provoke them to return the next time.
  14. I was happy to see Ashman doing well and making a run here. I watched him in the stream vs Gats(?). I competed vs him last summer at the Retro World Series (original Tecmo tourney). Pretty good at that version, and a guy who's made the round of 64 in back to back year at Madison.

    Below is a semi- tutorial type video of me running Cleveland's offense vs Chicago in the final game. Playing the CPU isn't really a great test in most cases, but the top D-end dropping into coverage sort of replicates playing another human. And the CPU also has some nice cheat speed that late in the season. At worst it's a decent training exercise to sharpen your skills on offense. This takes a look at Denver's offense, and spends a decent amount of time discussing run blocking schemes. Later breaks down the pass coverages that occur vs Denver and how I can tell which plays my opponent called based on the defensive reactions. Denver is a pretty easy team to do pre-snap reads with, based on which defender the opponent has chosen. Didn't mention it because the CPU always has the top D-end as the primary defender. The pre-snap reads would be more for 2 player games where the human controlled defender might come from positions such as the top DB, or bottom side LB/D-end.
