I hope they get the sound right on this new Genesis console. Is it just really difficult to emulate the Yamaha sound chip that was in the Sega Genesis?

 

There are no sound issues with the HD model. The SD and handheld will sound similar to past models.

Just found out that what I denoted as "Tampico" (Heino) could also be "Adalita" (Trini Lopez) since the excerpt played in Frogger is the start of both songs, although two different composers are given for them. Maybe it's really a Mexican foljk song, and the "composers" did not compose the main melody.

Helpful infographic follows.

 

The box that is blue is the item for you.

The box that is white should make you take flight.

Pitfall 2? :D

 

 

Beat me to it.  I was going to ask the same thing!  Pitfall 2 is the best (except for Kaboom maybe)!

 

 

I beat you both to it back on page 2 herein this exact same thread http://atariage.com/...neup/?p=3790298

 

:cool:

"Alps 1 Ten thousand" American folk song


That's Google Translate screwing up "Alps 10,000 Feet," which is the name by which Japan knows the tune of "Yankee Doodle."
 

"Arthur I'm on fire Arthur Prince of Hakuba OP


Wow, Google, that is all sorts of messed up. The software apparently decided to take the "I am" from the song title "I am Arthur" and hook it onto the "Burn up/Blaze forth" part of the TV series title (which, again, is in the verb's imperative mood form and thus doesn't match), hence the bonkers "I'm on fire." Then it inexplicably leaves 白馬 untranslated as "Hakuba," as if it were a name instead of the noun "white (haku) horse (ba)." He's the Prince of the White Horse because he, y'know, rides a white horse. He's not the prince of some place called "Whitehorse." This quality of translation can turn me into Onmode-ky of Redface.
 

It could well be that Google's translation is hilariously, preposterously imperfect.


I fixed that for you. :)
 

The box that is blue is the item for you.
The box that is white should make you take flight.


This kind of mnemonic device is typically useless to me. I still can't remember whether "red meets black" is good or bad for Jack, and whether "red meets yellow" is good or bad for fellow (talking about the color bands on a snake). I could easily get what you wrote above twisted up in my head as "The box that is blue is bad for you./The box that is white will make you take flight." (in which the latter is construed as a hallelujah moment). It's much simpler to remember "Buy the one that costs more." ;)

Speaking of which, I didn't miss out on any news on the AtGames 2017 prices or game lists, did I?

P.S. In vaguely related news (same, or at least similar, product category), I asked toymaker The Bridge Direct a question a few months ago. I got no answer. Today, they finally . . . gave my question a "like." Still with no answer. What the heck?

I'm finishing up a vacation this week, but I'll have final products in my hand by next week. I'll try to answer what questions I can that do not trump any official announcements.

That's good news, thanks Bill. Enjoy your vacation, but when you get back, we will want to know how these look, sound, feel, taste, and smell.

If only the HD Genesis flashback could support my 32x. That flashback Gold Activision has got my interest!

I posted the official final game lists for all of the 2017 AtGames products on Armchair Arcade: http://armchairarcad...m/perspectives/

 

The only one missing is the Atari Flashback 8 Gold Activision Edition Console because we're still waiting on confirmation on one of the titles.

Awesome!  Looking forward to when you have confirmation that Pitfall 2 is officially on the list.  ;-)

I'm pretty certain that I will go for the Gold, but can't wait for the official list of games.

I think Activision Gold is the one to get. All the games of Gold that matter, plus ten more, at the same price, potentially with paddles if you buy from the place with that deal.

I'll be buying the Atari Flashback 8 Activision Gold, then also the Atari Flashback Portable with Namco games, both in September!

At approximately the 1 hour and 41 minute mark of this video, Yada, my colleague from AtGames, talks about some of the products: https://cheddar.com/videos/160028
