The can be made to do so. They need a completely different approach than simply looking for a change in the scanline brightness.

 

Makes sense.  Although you can not use the NES zapper on today's HDTVs, you can still play Duck Hunt on the HDTV via the Wii and firing/aiming with the Wii remote.

Indeed - just who do they think they're appealing to and why do they think they'll make money from total crap like this????

 

Aaannnd, Dugger breaks 100!

 

From the title and the absolute lack of any coherent anything in the trailer, it could attract a lot of porn seekers. Sounds like a sci-fi porn title.

 

Does Dugger get some kind of door prize?

But the so-called Coleco company is a family-friendly one that doesn't allow anything inappropriate for children!  You guys have no idea how hard it was for me to type that with a straight face.

No, not at all.  Bits of Yesterday is clearly made by a bunch of gaming enthusiasts with actual knowledge and insight of the retrogaming community.  That other garbage is just made by some cash-grabbing idiot who mistakenly thinks that by attaching a vaguely recognized brand name he knows nothing about it could attract more people and bring in bonus $$$$.

Good grief:

 

"A small town video game store clerk must go from zero to hero after accidentally unleashing the forces of evil from a cursed Colecovision game... Max Jenkins' gaming fantasies collide with reality when a legendary "lost" installment of the Nether Game series appears on the store counter of his workplace, Fallout Games. Unbeknownst to Max, the game bears a "Curse of The Ages", and in playing it, he unlocks The Nether, an ancient malevolent force of evil from the cartridge, upon his small hometown. Along with a mysterious masked man from the past wielding a video game light blaster pistol, and his two best friends, Liz and Reggie, Max must figure out how to beat the Nether at it's own game before it's Game Over for humanity."

Now he's ripping off Captain S.  http://www.pbc-produ...tainS/Show.html

Very glad to support the Colecovision homebrew scene. A shoutout to Team Pixelboy and partner Good Deal Games for some EXCELLENT service! Two days ago I ordered SGM Zaxxon and Buck Rogers (and also Zanac) and they arrived today, in pristine conditions! These are my first Team Pixelboy products, and I am in sheer AWE. 

Great job guys!

Somebody needs to port Space Cunt to Co-leech-o-vision, with a big "not endorsed by..." stamp on it. :grin:

Is the beast dead, or just sleeping? No social media activity in a month, to say nothing of "engagement."

Robotech

Robotech: The Macross Saga is the game being Used in Coleco Mini Arcade, which was poorly received at that time and being in a Mini Arcade form factor would also hurt the Multiplayer options of the game.

Coleco is using Matchbox's Armoured Cyclone 1985 as their claimed "toy-line prototype"

Harmony Gold Coleco's partner has the rights to The Super Dimension Fortress MacrossThe Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada until their expiry on March 14, 2021

 

Sydney Hunter backlash when they claimed that it just was released, and the so called Coleco Expo version

 

Coleco Expo being a disaster...............

 

No one is interested in the MAX reload and the Nether Blaster since it would be a 10 minute commercial stunt

-----------------------

So after that it probably was/is wise to focus on other companies such as Sega/Nintendo to pretend some type of connection
