I don't get it.  $25 USD for this game?  It's not worth the plastic shell of the cartridge...
 
What am I missing?  Are we going to start putting all the little cute demos people have made while learning IntyBASIC in cart individually and sell them to collectors?  Oscar, mate, we're doing this all wrong! :o


Why can't we focus on quality, and not quantity?

It's good for introducing young children to video games. Graphics can be better; make use of the full resolution available to moving objects.

 

Oh really?  As if children need an excuse to be introduced to video games. :roll:

Exactly, are we so hard up for Intellivision cartridges?  All I see is another excuse for speculators to buy a bunch, add it to their "official list of homebrews" and put it back on e-Bay for $$$.

 

Oh well.  Like I said, I don't get it.

Eventually everything makes it to ePay and always at a higher price. (Probably an exception) No stopping it.

Not always at a higher price. Only if you are carefull to make less copies than there are collectors.

That reminds me of the new Nintendo mini Nes. 60 bucks retail. 150/200 online, even on walmart.com. Supposedly they made a bunch. But I can't find one in stores.....once rare/expensive always rare/expensive?

Oh man, just like the Wii. Eventually it turned out everyone bought one, even though they were so "scarce."

Am I the only one that thought that this was going to be an adult game?
 
Rev posting a game called Hotel Bunny ... I mean, come on!  Am I REALLY the only one that inserted the word Playboy in there somewhere?
 
The next person that finds themselves in the gutter, see if you can find my mind for me.

Put me down for one cart please.

 

Your mother is a hamster, and your father smells of elderberries! :P

 

Do I get a cart now? ;)

I'm confused- is it up to the collector elite to determine which games are allowed to be published as a home brew? Part of the free market is to allow anyone to produce a product. Whether an individual likes a game or not doesn't matter- the development, coding, manufacturing, advertisement, and shipping is the sole responsibility and financial risk of the developer and producer. I would rather have poorly developed games available for anyone to purchase rather than a very limited run of a game that is only for sale by invite only to select few.
If games by certain coders or developers are known to be flops then the demand will be weak, resulting in a drop in price as the producer seeks to minimize their losses.

Bottom line we as hobbists are not the ones to decide on which game is to be produced. I, for one, applaud the man for creating a new game on a new console for him. Well done, sir. We should be encouraging the programmer.

Bring back Analog recordings on vinyl, music
Just sound so much better raw.


What was the last album you bought on vinyl? Mine was Dream Theater's self-titled album last summer. Then Norah Jones most recent one. I'm trying to get all of Type O's albums but I'm missing one.
