#3999980 "The Minstrel’s Legend” An Intellivision RPG?

Posted by gavvv on Tue Apr 3, 2018 12:44 PM

I'll willing to be the "Village Bicycle".  However, I don't know if that has anything to do with this game.

Somehow I think the town pennyfarthing might already have a chaps-wearing driver :)

#3784814 Keith Robinson passed away :(

I hope this isn't too soon for anyone, but now that the shock has worn off, something that came to mind, so a question -- was it Keith himself who had the rights to the Intelivision properties or a company?  What happens to those rights now?  Should we worry about the rights falling into the hands of someone who doesn't care, like Coleco?

Intellivision Productions (at least when formed) was a partnership with Steve Roney and steve at times was titled as 'vp of software development' for IP. So I imagine the continuing IP ownership would still be in 'BSR' stewardship of a sort

I've had to cancel my PRGE plans for this year, as that saturday is now the day we're bringing home a new addition to the family.  How could you say no to that face...

Never heard of it. Guess I'm trying that tomorrow night. Looks good. It almost looks similar to Uno Pizzeria. I am not big into chains, but I really like Uno.

If they dont have a 5 meat special then they dont have enough nerd cred :)

What gives with H2? My mom tuned into Comcast 116 (H2) the other night and there's some other throwaway channel there (edit: Vice). It wasn't the first time Comcast has changed the subscription packages, so I scrolled through all 2000 channels (the guide lists all channels whether you are subbed or not) trying to locate H2 and it was nowhere to be found.

A&E networks announced last year they were getting rid of H2 and replacing it with the 'viceland' channel based on their acquisition of the Vice production company. It really blows. The Universe was an awesome show.

I wouldn't really like the percentage scoring system. It tends to quickly narrow a competition to it's detriment imho. It can work in a 'deca' (decathlon) scenario like on twin galaxies mame contests in days of yore, but doing week to week I think it might discourage competition too early maybe.

I think two weeks is a good time frame as well.

At least in terms of Retro the magazine, I noticed that David l Craddock (author of books on Roguelikes and also the creation of diablo) is the new editor and I quite enjoy and respect his writing. Maybe he gives it a chance to turn around. His piece in the new issue I really liked.

From the Colecovision FB page bout a half hour ago:

Chameleon Product: We are thankful to have a large group of passionate engineers and retro game enthusiasts who follow Coleco and other product lines. It has come to our attention that the community has certain concerns over the prototypes involving the Retro VGS model. The team at Retro remains confident that their product is developed to the extent as describe; HOWEVER, in order to confirm or debase these concerns, Coleco has demanded to inspect the prototype units within a seven day time frame. At which time, independent engineers will review their findings and determine if those units are up to our standards. We will report some or all of those findings to the community so as long as they do not interfere with proprietary information. We remain hopeful that the community's concerns are merely speculations, but if there is merit to the concerns, then we have no choice but to abandon the project rather than release a sub-par product. During this time, we ask that the community allow us time to complete these inspections. Time extensions will only be granted if requested by the independent engineer. Time extensions and results will be posted here.
