  1. Tecmo Bowl podcast

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

    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.
  3. Tecmo Bowl podcast

    Covering a variety of topics on the original NES Tecmo Bowl. I'm joined by Ben, who placed 3rd at the 2016 Omaha Tournament. https://tecmobowlversusrbi.podbean.com/e/talkin-tecmo-bowl-w-ben-s-pt-1/ Part 2 here... https://tecmobowlversusrbi.podbean.com/e/talkin-tecmo-bowl-w-ben-s-pt-2/
  4. Does Madden Have a Monopoly on NFL License?

    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/
  5. Tournament Abundance

    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.
  6. Tournament Abundance

    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.
  7. 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.
  8. Tecmo Bowl game footage with commentary

    Below is a semi- tutorial type video of me running Cleveland's offense vs Chicago in the final game. https://youtu.be/U0eepqHvlFE 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, and occasionally you get a good glipse of the size of windows you would see vs a human defender. 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. https://youtu.be/CrCzkNDCMO8 I don't think I mentioned it in the video, but Denver is a pretty easy team to do pre-snap reads with, based on which defender the opponent has chosen. Couldn't illustrate 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.
  9. Seattle, WA - Pimpin' Ain't Easley

    Easley last played in the NFL in 87, but still made his way onto the original TB roster which was released in Feb of 1989. That's a guy who's career was cut short by a medical condition, but slipped under the radar of the Japanese programmers as they finalized the Tecmo roster some 4-6 months after he had retired.
  10. Team performance in 2-player games: This is how we Tecmo!

    Alignment for Season 7. We played week 1 recently. San Fran. Denver, Washington, LA, New York, and Minnesota all collected wins.
  11. TB Rules?

    LOL. Nice run there! Shifty cut back for sure. In our circle of 2 players games, we don't allow the offense to gain yards, when the defense picks the same play as the offense.
  12. Des Moines, IA - 11/11/2017 - Iowa Tecmo 4

    I've already discussed this with a buddy in Perry. It's on our to do list!
  13. Great article. Unfortunately, most of the action I caught on the stream was pre-final 8 before some of the guests came on. It was an incredibly professional broadcast. Great work by all. With this tourney under his belt and reading all the research he put into it, I'm confident Jimmie would be even greater next year.
  14. Commentators were really good, but I think it would be great to have some players sit in to commentate after they were eliminated through out the night. Even if its just in a moderate role breaking down a few things or getting asked some questions about what just happened on a particular play.
