Lol, no.

In no real order..

Guinness (all Variations)
New Castle Brown Ale
Pretty much any German beer
Samuel Adams Boston Lager
Smithwicks (the blonde is heavenly)
Shinerbock
Mondelo Negra
And of course gotta mix in some Lone Star just cause its so iconic in Texas :0

Like the dark beers overall :0

 

I know XD I was being silly.

 

I like my stouts and porters. ;o
We have a local brewery here called Shebeen, they're really awesome.

Love small breweries. Drank the big national brands for too long, had no ideal what Id been missing out on.

Picking out a new beer at the ole booze brick and mortar is as much fun as picking out a new game.

Don't forget Ames, Alco, Woolco, Bradlees, Calddor, and Hills!

 

Ah, Caldors and Bradlees...

Be sure to write up some reviews for the AtariAge store when you get a chance. :)

Will do. The past Jaguar games Ive gotten from them have been nicely done so high hopes for these as well.

Yeah, AtariAge does an awesome job with their cartridges/package designs. At one point I was considering selling my AVGN game on AtariAge, but the problem with that is setting up negotiations with James Rolfe and Cinemassacre, etc. When I made that game and sent it off to James, I wasn't really prepared to sell it/figure out the economics of making the cartridges/getting past the copyright issues, etc.

AtariAge (Albert) doesn't sell NES games in his store.

I've made NES carts, haven't added any to the store yet, but planning on doing so.

Actually I read somewhere else that game consoles handle memory differently, so even though they're technically x86-based machines, the desktop/PC version of Windows cannot actually run normally on an Xbox One X or PS4. It has something to do with the fact that Windows 10's memory management reserves it in different ways for applications and multitasking, etc... And then you have dedicated GDDR5/6 memory for the graphics, etc... I forget the technicalities behind it. lol.

 

However given that we have laptops that could do what the VCS is claiming to do, it might still be possible. Not sure how they go about having the system partitions structured, etc.

Mine was an Atari 2600 game, not an NES game. (see my signature)

Saw that game video on his channel. Really well done stuff! Id love to have that type of skill to design games :0 but alas Im helpless with coding or anything resembling coding.

Not sure what it would be but it would have gorillas, owls and penguins in it because those are the three coolest animals..

On and lava, lots of lava..

Thanks dude! :D
Yeah, ive been striving to be an indie developer for quite some time. Put out my first iPhone/Android game recently. I actually also wanted to make an exclusive game for the new VCS too, to kind of help the system along a bit. I know that it has to be a DAMN good game though for it to work out well though xDDD. Making games is really daunting, especially if youre just one person doing it all like i am.

Probably. :)

 

What was said in the Q&A suggests that they're not intending the user to be able to put their own OS on the internal eMMC at all and that even Ubuntu on an external drive is going to need some modifications to boot up.

 

That may of course turn out to be complete hogwash, but I wouldn't bank on this thing letting you install Windows easily or running it well. Especially so when it's not even a thing yet.
