#3966525 2017 Game of the Year- Revised Voting Thread

Posted by Albert on Mon Feb 19, 2018 12:08 AM

Posting this for m-crew (since the topic is now locked): 


The time has come.....its finally time to announce the 2017 Game Of The Year winners on our beloved Intellivision game console. Let me first congratulate every single person who has been involved in releasing these games. From the programmers to the game testers and everyone in between, the Intellivision community thanks you all. Its amazing that we get to play new games year after year.


Let me Congratulate Jr. Pac-Man for chomping its way to the title of 2017 Game Of The Year. Also Lost Caves Of Kroz comes away with the best Re-Release in 2017. Kroz is definitely in the conversation for being one of the all time best games for the intellivision. Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2017 voting process.

I've made L.E.M. available in the AtariAge Store again, after running out of boxes in the fall.  The game includes the cartridge and manual.  You can find it here:

The Gizzle Wap and L.E.M. are available in the AtariAge Store again.  I ran out of boxes in the fall, so I've made them available as cart/manual versions.  You can find them here:

#3963015 The Atari interview discussion thread

Posted by Albert on Wed Feb 14, 2018 11:31 PM

Jerry Horanoff was the creator of the Carina bulletin board system software for the Atari 8-bit computers, and later, Carina II. 


Just finished listening to the interview, glad you had a chance to chat with him!  We used to talk fairly often back in the Carina II days.  He really did a terrific job with Carina II, it was powerful, quite flexible, and easy to modify and add to.  I had a blast running a Carina II BBS (for several years) and writing software for the system, including the game RoboWar II that he briefly mentioned.  Those were fun times.  :) 



#3962541 Why I got back into collecting ColecoVision...

Well, THAT was a surprise. The game runs really smoothly, which is great, but the sound effects lack punch, which is less great. The voice sounds pretty constipated, and it's got the same issue with sudden changes in tone that the sound samples from MAME had. Now I get why they left the voice out of other conversions.


That speech sounds just like it did in the arcade.  I'd much prefer to have the original arcade speech than have it removed or have it changed in some fashion.

This is an absolutely incredible thread.  I hadn't looked in on it in some time, and I've gone back through nearly 20 pages so far, astounded at some of these images.  Someday I'm going to take all these images and look at them on a real 8-bit computer.  Please keep the coming!  :)

I have kicked Wolf_ from this thread.  I will clean up his mess when I have some time later to sort through it. 



#3958923 Is criticism of Tesla, and Tesla jokes officially banned on AtariAge?

Posted by Albert on Sat Feb 10, 2018 7:23 PM

No, but your constant trolling on this subject has become tiresome.  



#3958133 Happy New Year... XM shipping this month

Posted by Albert on Fri Feb 9, 2018 8:15 PM

Oh, right. Duh.  Did we ever get confirmation about 128GB carts working?


I'll be testing some once I get my unit.

Yeah, I assume it's the band Blue October.  :)  Here's a video, chosen because of the Falcon Heavy launch attempt today.

I wonder what "Blue October" is?  I had friends in a band in the 80's called Red October,...But these days you never know...I'd hope it's a band but it could just as easily be a store, a bar, a video game, a micro brew...


Did you try searching Google?

Perhaps it was a trap, someone trying to lure innocent Atarians into their van? :-P


Good thing I didn't see it!!

Definitely not me, although interesting to see there's an AtariAge sticker!  And a rocket sticker.  And a NASA sticker!
