Hello everybody, this is my first post on AtariAge and I wanted to start my leaving a short review and give a thumbs up shout out to Gummy Bear for his awesome rotary Opal controllers. I had the pleasure of picking up two of these last week, and I have to say, anyone thinking of purchasing one - you absolutely should - they are 100% worth the investment. There's no doubt about it, the Opal completely transforms the way you'll play Tempest 2000 for starters, and it's great to know that you're playing it as the game designers intended you to play it. The Opal works equally as well on titles including Rebooteroids and Impulse X, and after some initial in-game tweeks are made to the sensitivity settings, you'll be smashing through asteroids and bricks with incredible precision, speed and accuracy. It really is that good. Coming back to these titles has been a real pleasure, and I'm pretty confident my scores will go through the roof because of the sharpness afforded by the Opal!

 

I have to take my hat off to Gummy Bear for producing rotary controllers of superb OEM build quality too. You really wouldn't know that these hadn't been made by Atari, in fact the finish is likely to be better if anything. Incredibly precise build quality, and the 'O' LED lightshow when you're listening to the rave scores on Tempest and Rebooeroids just works perfectly!

 

As you can see I am well impressed. The other great thing too is the quality of the communication you'll receive from Gummy Bear - so all in all, a very positive experience. Don't delay, buy an Opal!

Out of stock again!
I was hoping to avoid this happening again, but there was a sudden, inexplicable rush where 11 sold in the last week.

Next batch should be ready by the end of February.
