    Knobbe got a reaction from PatrickB1008 for a article, The Weekend before the Super Bowl will see a lot of Tecmo Action   
    The weekend after the NFL Championship games and before the Super Bowl is a football dead zone that is normally filled by the Pro Bowl game that most of the players don't take seriously and most football fans don't care to watch.  It also happens to be a good time to put on a Tecmo Super Bowl tournament and this year there are three in different time zones for people to scratch that football itch.  With that, let's take a look at this Saturday's upcoming tournaments in Seattle, Green Bay, and New York City.
     
     

     
    The Sixth Annual TUNDRA BOWL in Green Bay, Wisconsin under @RetroNathan has grown into one of the largest tournaments in the country and with the recent news of TECMO MADISON relocating to NYC it may proof to be the biggest event in the state for 2019.  In terms of game play this is a very standard type of tournament where competitors play in pool play for seeding into an elimination tournament.  A twist this year is the inclusion of a "Division 2" section for guys who want to play some Tecmo in more of a leisure instead of a competitive environment.  Additionally, there is a blown out Friday night that will include a "2 ON 2 TECMO TOURNEY" where competitors will pair up on teams and RETROMANIA, an 8 game battle of overall video game skills. The events are open to walk-ins and more information can be found on the Tundra Bowl website
     

    A new event from a well established group is this year's BRONX BOWL.  Typically we've seen a fall tournament from the NYC group but an expansion of @Bad Moon Rison favorite neighborhood bar and this relatively slow sports weekend were the inspiration for this event.  The new venue was also the inspiration for a twist on format as group play will consist of matchup cards and the single elimination tournament will feature drawing teams to use for the rest of the tourney.  You can still register here
     
     

    Last but not least is the very active PACIFIC NORTHWEST TECMO GROUP, known to many as the PNW. Long time member @DT. has come up with PNW HONBASHO I - BEHIND THE WOODEN SHED introducing some radical ideas.  Play will start first with groups based on skill and then matchups will be determined based on your record and rank coming from these groups.  If that wasn't enough action for you, the competitors will also be playing regular season games and whatever matchups might occur on the system they find themselves at.  The plan is to end in a tourney that should culminate in championship games played during Super Bowl matchups.  Show up and you're in.

    Knobbe got a reaction from fatcheerleader for a article, Is the December 13, 1991 release date of Tecmo Super Bowl a lie?   
    For as long as I can remember I have never thought that the official North American release day for Tecmo Super Bowl for the NES was known. Wikipedia, your encyclopedia in the cloud has always listed the North American release as "December, 1991" while listing a very specific "December 13th, 1991" for the Japanese release. Any other sort of internet deep dive would come up with the same result: no one listed the specific day on which this game was released. Try searching for "Tecmo Super Bowl release date" on Google or Bing now.  The result is quite different because wikipedia is now different.  I had noticed back in Oct of 2018 that the Tecmo Super Bowl Wikipedia page had been updated with the North American release day.
     
     
     
     
    Anyone can update a Wikipedia page and anyone can view what has been changed and who changed it.  It's possible to create an account on Wikipedia and this will show you what pages or talk has come from this specific user. If you don't create an account, you can still update a page but the site will list your IP address instead.  
     
     
    On Dec 10 of 2017 someone updated the release date of Tecmo Super Bowl from December of 1991 to Friday, December 13th, 1991
     

     
     
    The updated user wasn't a registered account on Wikipedia so the IPv6 address "2600:1700:8880:6410:3935:833B:C73E:466F" was credited for the update.  This is an address registered through AT&T and unless there is some other record associated with this address around this time there is no way to trace this short of having AT&T search through there records for it.

     
     
    When you drill down into the contributions of this user, you find a pattern: This person, or bot, systematically updated 23 different game release dates over the course of an hour on Dec 10, 2017. One could surmise from this list of completely random games that this was the work of someone with a general interest in NES games, not a Tecmo Super Bowl enthusiast. Why were these particular games selected and if someone did have a list of releases dates for video game in North America 25+ years ago where exactly did they get it?
     
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/2600:1700:8880:6410:3935:833B:C73E:466F
     

     
    At the end of the day though the question remains: Was Tecmo Super Bowl released on Dec 13, 1991?  The answer is doubtful and let me explain why.  Tecmo was a Japanese company and like many while they maintained a office in the U.S. most were headquartered out of Japan.  If you look through dates for video game releases you'll see a couple of things.
    Japanese video games are most often released on a Monday or a Friday US releases rarely, if ever, occur on the same calendar day as the Japanese release. It makes sense for a release to occur before a weekend, right? Friday before a weekend seems the most logical as a person might purchase the game with the intent of playing it for the weekend.  You'll see that December 13, 1991 is a Friday.  However, while it is Friday in Japan it's actually Thursday in the US. As you start to find some games with actual release dates in the US you'll see Thursday and my guess would be because this is Friday to the bosses back in Japan.  If there was an official release date for Tecmo Super Bowl that paralleled the Japanese release, it would most likely be Thursday, Dec 12, 1991.  It's most probable though that even though this would have been a very highly anticipated sequel worthy of an official release date that the company most likely shipped product to retailers to be sold upon arrival.  While unsatisfying, "December, 1991" probably is most accurate.
     
    I would welcome any sort of help in answering this question and please comment on this article or send an email to [email protected]

    Knobbe got a reaction from vegas for a article, Moving the Goal Posts: A Hack for Classic NFL/AFL Roms   
    Prior to 1912 there was no end zone and the goal line and end line were the same.  With the introduction of the forward pass, the end zone was devised as a way for a receiver to catch a ball inbounds. Goal posts remained on the goal line until 1927 when they were moved to the back of the endzone. While they remained there in the college game the NFL in 1933 moved them back to the goal line until 1974 when they were once again moved to the end line.

     
     
    Thus Super Bowls 1-8 plus any AFL seasons would have goalpost located at the front of the endzone and @fgqb#19nyj was kind enough to put together a tutorial on how to easily add this to your custom rom.

    Welcome back to TecmoBowl.org as we and cover athlete Rob Gronkowski celebrate the 21st birthday of Tecmo Super Bowl with our annual release! If you haven't been around in a while I hope you like our new site and if it's your first time we hope you stay and look around.

    If you find any misspellings or wrong numbers, please feel free to hit our forums and let us know. This is our release candidate and we will surely update this as we progress. You can suggest that we make your favorite players awesomer....but we probably won't. That sort of stuff is based on assumptions and we're sticking with ours!

    Tecmo Super Bowl is the greatest sports video game of all time. Now, 26 years after TSB made 8-Bit legends of Bo Jackson and Lawrence Taylor, TecmoBowl.org proudly announces the release of Tecmo Super Bowl 2018. This site's 11th yearly iteration updates Tecmo's NES classic with up-to-date rosters, graphics, schedules and play books for all 32 NFL squads.  Additionally, you can now check the defensive conditions of your players.

    Playable on multiple platforms and operating systems via NES emulation software, Tecmo Super Bowl 2018 brings Nintendo's bone-crunching classic to today's computers and handheld devices.

    Will offenses fear JJ Watt like they feared Bruce Smith? Who is the more deadly play-caller: Aaron Rodgers or Dan Marino? Will Ezekiel Elliott live up to the hype? Loaded into an NES Emulator, Tecmo Super Bowl 2018 will make legends for the next 26 years.
