  2. TITLE CHANGE - I will now be posting what I am listening to on Fridays at work or when being awesome. I encourage you to do the same. I'm always curious to know what everyone listens to. Hurricane55 is jamming Jay-Z. TDO is probably listening to Boy George. What about the rest of you? I've been cranking Young Widows, Young Widows – Old Wounds , and Thrice, Thrice – The Artist In The Ambulance , today.
  3. There are a bunch of ROMs on NHL94.com -- http://forum.nhl94.com/index.php?/forum/121-downloads/ Mostly 94, but some 95 sprinkled in here and there.
  4. So, what the heck, right? Yea, Tecmo Madison (TM) is back from the dead. Well, never really died. After receiving numerous emails, PMs, tweets, and etc from you all, we sat down to discuss where do we go from here. In a nutshell, Chet's and Josh's families + commitments outside of Tecmo have needed more attention and rightfully so. Without being able to give TM the time it deserves and needs, they decided it would be better to walk away then put out a half-baked effort. *Enter davefmurray* I am taking over the overall directing and promoting of the tournament. I have a team of awesome dudes helping out -- @Knobbe, @qb_browns, @tecmoaz & my bud Casey. qb_browns has been the tournament event director for many years and will continue to do so. Your tournament day will be just as smooth (if not smoother) as it has always been. Knobbe is helping out on the tech side. We are going to sync the TM site and T-Borg. Your records, profiles, and stats will be brought into the T-Borg world. TecmoAZ is a stream & broadcast professional in the college sports world. He will help take our media offerings up a few notches. You will see a few more cameras floating around. Casey is an event coordinator and marketing professional in the Tampa area as well as a personal friend of mine. He will be helping me with all higher level decisions and be making sure all of our offerings are top notch. Chet & Josh will still be involved. Josh will still be your MC. The book of LT is not going anywhere. All the familiar faces you've come to know will still be around. There is just a change of hands behind the scenes so we can carry the TM torch. There are lots more updates to come. As we finalize things, we will announce them. For those that want the information first, we have an email list that you can sign up for on TecmoMadison.com. Those on the list will get updates first and will get hit up directly with sign-up info when the time arrives. #TecmoXIII is going to be awesome.

  8. This makes a lot of sense. I talked to Joe when he walked in. I introduced him to my wife and he says not your typical meet-and-greet. "Wow. Holy Shit.", shakes her hand and walks away. Thanks for that, Joe. Not awkward at all. lol
  9. No. If you don't want them I can re-accommodate them to a stand-by prize winner.

  12. What the what is going on?! As Bruddog said, we might as well fast forward to GSW vs CLE, round 3.
  13. Are you using other hacks? Sounds like you placing hacks in the same space and they are overwriting each other. Started a thread and give more details.
  14. Dude, heck yea! It is a massive undertaking, but hey man, do it for the love of Tecmo. At no point was I discouraged. Pretty sure I was perma-smile all day. Honestly, the worst part was unloading the truck into the storage unit at 7am Sunday. If Casey and his brother weren't there, I would have died and left it all in the street.
  15. DUDES - what a wild ride. Tecmo Madison XIII was a resounding success. We had a record number of players, in-venue spectators and live stream viewers. First of all, thanks to @sonofpatbeach, holzy11 & the rest of the Tecmo Madison for the trust they put in me pull this off. Secondly, the new ladies of Tecmo killed it. Casey established solid branding and set us up great for the future. Bailey fixed the impossible day of (Thanks, no shows.) while casting tournament directing wizardry and J.D.'s broadcast is a great skeleton to work off of for the future. Special shout-out to Jimmie, the new voice of Tecmo. I have so many highlights to mention, but want to keep it short. Every one of you who came to play = awesome. If you watched, just as awesome. If you are a live stream viewer, yep, still awesome. The weather was amazing. The Tecmaraderie still is very alive and well. Those who yelled at us and shit posted, we forgive you. We hear you about the venue. It was a blessing and a curse. We had pleenntttyyy of room for the players, some spectators and all the gear. The reality is we did too good of a job marketing in the local area because we had ~140 local spectators from 11am-2pm, which is insane. We were over capacity of the venue and had a billion NES setups at the same time. Once they cleared out, it was smooth sailing, albeit with a lingering mist of manstank aroma. I 100% understand your concern and will tell you unequivocally it will not be at High Noon Saloon for Tecmo XIV. (Whoa, weird. First time typing that.) Scorekeeping is never going to be 100% when you have to rely on some self reporting. In my opinion, we took too long trying to satisfy everyone about the play-in bracket by doing some recounts. If we didn't have perfect weather, a humongous patio and killer food I would have been worried, however, we had all three and everyone had an outstanding time. Thanks for your patience and understanding. The stage and stream took a hit when some equipment was broken from people moving the security barriers to jump on stage to goof off, which sucks because it ruined it for everyone. Drunk + selfish are never a good combo. Next year, the stage and broadcast will be on supreme lockdown. Problem solved! All in all, love you guys. This was great. Thanks for the encouragement for year one. Expect communication. Expect changes. Expect awesome.

  19. Talking to Burning Mort Co-Founder @Leonardite From: http://tecmomadison.com/talking-to-burning-mort-co-founder-leonardite/ Every fan of Tecmo Super Bowl has his own reason for loving the world’s best video game. Neil Roesler of Leonard, North Dakota gets his jollies from “the sheer calamity that ensues” when the defensive team guesses the offense’s play correctly. Leonardite (left) w/ the Tecmo Godfather Play-calling can never be taken lightly in competitive Tecmo. Roesler remembers playing a friend when an odd moment occurred. While first and goal, he picked a hail mary play that was blitzed on by his opponent. “The gamesmanship is even worse with people you play against frequently,” says Roesler, alias Leonardite. “The over-thinking becomes absurd.” But coming together with nerds of the same passion is what makes Tecmo so damn fun. Roesler and his North Dakotan cronies, Joey S. (Dr. Frolf) and Barry A. (Bob Nelson), have traveled to Madison every year since Madison VII in 2011. Bryce M has joined them since Madison IX. From the get-go, Roesler’s engagement with Tecmo culture has been spirited. “The stories made at these tournaments have been absurd, rarely involve Tecmo, and should largely be confined to the dark web,” Roesler witticises. But as human nature proves time and again, such is the stuff that fulfilling memories are made of. Buried in the guise of archaic video game simulation, many other Tecmo enthusiasts have found a rich community. “The best part of Madison is the reunion with all the people we have met,” Roesler says. “If everyone was a bunch of pricks buried in the stats and the results, I would have stopped going long ago. Instead, Madison is a can't miss annual event, and my personal Tecmo calendar keeps growing a little bigger each year when the right opportunities arise.” North Dakota has become yet another significant marker on the Tecmo community map, thanks to Roesler and his Peace Garden State squad. The first “Burning Mort” was held in Leonard, North Dakota, on July 16th of 2016. While attended by a modest twelve competitors, the highly documented event was, by all recordable accounts, a smashing success. Roesler insists that Burning Mort isn’t a tournament at all, but instead a “Tecmo Experience.” Involving hours of gameplay that are interrupted by frat house tomfoolery such as keg stands, the weekend was a largely shirtless bonding experience by all involved. During the months-longed build-up to Burning Mort, the event page on TecmoBowl.org produced many predictions as to what the heck this new "Tecmo Experience" would be. Fittingly, Roesler says that the closest speculation came by none other than the godfather of Tecmo. “So it’s like the Ryder Cup on stupid,” offered Knobbe. The Ryder Cup, of course, spins the solitary sport of golf into a cooperative adventure, while the Tecmo Ryder Cup does the same for the sport of Tecmo Super Bowl. In his personal quest for Tecmo greatness, Leonardite has made headway during his last two Madison appearances, advancing past the first knock-out round in his last two efforts. Look for Leonardite to garner a karmic boost from his recent contributions to the Tecmo Community via Burning Mort. A sweet sixteen birth is certainly within his reach. But much more importantly, so are new Tecmo memories. -- Neil is the author of the hilarious Tecmo Bowl meme site, Leonardite.com. Written by @Green Majik
