Some very strange Atari came in the mail today! I won an auction for two boxed Taiwan Cooper games. "Bobby Is Going Home" curiously doesn't match the label on the database here, and I can't find a cartridge scan match anywhere on Atarimania. I've never seen a cartridge like this before, haha. Also, I love how bizarre the flavour text for Donkey Kong is.

Where the heck did "polygon" even come from?

They seem to be the center of all gaming-related internet drama, and everybody talks about them as if they didn't just magically appear randomly a few years ago.

I think that they emerged from gamergate. I dunno, a lot of the writers for that site deserve to be treated as bad as some of the subjects of gamergate simply due to their shitty writing.  :D  :D  :D

 

I see no reason not to do Both!

 

Chances are, a Very large percentage of people on this forum already have the real deal so everything else is just for fun!   I found myself almost Amazed at how much I am liking my Mini!  And I have Most of the games And I have a Retron 5 so Even I can't explain why I'm liking this little thing so much...

 

I don't recommend ebay prices unless money really is no object...But if I'm being honest I probably would have paid double...(Just don't tell Nintendo...) ...

I'll probably get a mini if they're still available at retail price when everyone who "needs" one has one.

Lets have a civil response.

 

 

 

Well, there goes that.

This article flat-out sucks. A lot of the flavour text used to describe some of these games and their prices made me visibly wince. No better than kotaku, they're both just two sides of the same "muh childhooooood / whoa haha nerd culture, right?" coin.

 

Also, their prices are completely misleading. $6.49 for an NES AND StarTropics, my ass. Even if it was missing a 72-pin, it wouldn't be that cheap. The line about the extra screw in the cartridge was pretty dumb as well. Clearly this writer has no idea what he's talking about.
