Another reason to hate smartphones, QR Codes. I can never find an app that actually can scan them. Why can't people just use URL's anymore?

    I couldn't find a good Android app or I must be doing it wrong.

    Man, I just got Battlefront II, the old one from 2005. If I can't get this to work I'm going to be more sore than a space manatee on Luke Skywalker's hermit planet.

    The GOG versions all work fine on my box. I also recommend the xpadder program if you like the 360 controller.

    In a somewhat similar vein, I played Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, an original Xbox game, on my Xbox One.

Good news: My granddad's TV I inherrited works great for Atari Flashback. Bad news, none of my actual 2600's work... So much for using orginal hardware.

    If you decide your 2600s are truly dead, post them for sale here in the AtariAge Marketplace. Someone here can surely bring them back to life, or at least use them for spare parts.

    Yes I know the cable is RF and I tested the coax adapter on my 8-bit computer which works. I'll probably order a replacement with a an LED light so i know it's working.

Changed my profile tag cause I'm disgusted with all things "AtarI" right now, especially with that EmptyBox and all the ST scene drama. I'll focus on collecting & playing old DOS games for now...

Here's a funny article on what happens when video game based movie characters meet up... https://www.theringer.com/movies/2018/3/16/17126044/tomb-raider-lara-croft-video-game-movie-character-roundtable

BJ Blazkowicz just killed off the PC Master Race... Can't get the Wolfenstein II demo to run cause it only runs on a high end card and obscene amounts of RAM. And even then the Triple A titles still run like crap. Might as well get a console and stream the games to my "gaming" PC. :(

    That's what they want, everything, to go streaming!

    I play Wolfenstein II on my PS4, without internet connection and it is super crisp.

    I was gonna use a PC instead of getting a modern game system, but King of Fighters XIV convinced me to take the Nestea plunge. Kind of glad I did, ultimately. Consoles force developers to work within set guidelines, although the rise of "plus" systems may change this.

    Local radio station is playing it here. Pretty sure they have it timed to end at the 2:30 totality (well, we'll only get around 85%).

    You sound surprised it'd be any different from how the Pro was launched? :D

The founder of Namco, Masaya Nakamura, has passed away. May he and the whole company be remembered for giving us awesome games over the years from Pac-Man to the latest Tekken...

    Damn I remember him standing in my office, whilst I was showing off the 3D model for PacMan. :(

    Just so everyone knows, it's not Toru Iwatani (creator of Pac-Man) that passed away. The headlines are misleading in that reguard. (Unless they also say "Father of Ridge Racer" as well...)

I wish Seth Rogan and Sony would do the Console Wars movie instead and avoid all this controversy, but then Sony would have gotten hacked by Nintendo fanbois... ;)
