#3931798 Activision Patches Question

Posted by totallyterrificpants on Wed Jan 10, 2018 7:04 AM

The prices I find have increased in recent years. However, my best advice is to wait until you get more replies here before doing anything with them. I collected around 75% of them in 2011 and paid an average of 20-30 bucks Australian, Only a few were pricey and got bid wars such as Pitfall II, HERO and one of the Dolphin patches. But as the market changes, so will The collectibles.

Very nice. Rick Harrison will give you a shiny penny now that the restoration work won't cut in his profits. Haha, seriously tho nice work.


#3660221 What did you buy today?.........

Posted by totallyterrificpants on Fri Dec 30, 2016 7:34 AM

Tape Worm and Asterix for VCS.  Only buying 2 Atari games and 1 vinyl record a month so I can save more money and still have my hobbies.




#3655862 Has anyone ever attempted a complete Atari 2600 collection before?

Posted by totallyterrificpants on Fri Dec 23, 2016 7:29 AM

There is probably a collector out there with 1000 Atari games and they're just pirates of Combat.

#3599949 Kids React (Poorly) to Atari 2600

Posted by totallyterrificpants on Fri Sep 23, 2016 5:27 AM

I never got that kids way of thinking old = bad.  I was a kid in the N64 days and at a friends house we played N64 then in the spare room they had a NES and I thought it was awesome.  I played Castlevania.  Hell I was 12 in 2003 When I started researching Atari, Sega Genesis etc and thought it was all AMAZING.  What depresses me is when they get teens to play games and they all get game over in the first level of Super Mario Bros or Green Hill in Sonic.  Yes, that happened...Also a lot Couldn't beat Glass Joe in Punch Out.  They're hopeless at games.

I saw your vids a few months back.  Loved the old footage




#3585643 Why do YOU collect Atari 2600 games?

Posted by totallyterrificpants on Fri Sep 2, 2016 5:13 AM

 

Games are supposed to be fun and all that. Not an exercise in learning and drudgery. VCS games are timeless and that's why they're still being made today.

 

True.  Games now are all image and nothing special.  Sure DKC on SNES was a basic platform game but beyond those visuals is a great game.  I don't care how many polygon's my PS4 can run, I had more fun playing the PS2 port of Bully than ANY of my exclusive PS4 games.  VCS has that charm which can't be beaten.  Asteroids is more fun than the annual Call of Duty release.  I do love some newer games but  the last two games to suck me in were The World Ends With You in 2008 and Persona 4 Golden in 2013 which was a port of a 2008 game.

Newer games lack a lot.  I only have a Xbox One for Rare Replay.




#3584891 What's the WORST price you've seen on Atari stuff?

Posted by totallyterrificpants on Thu Sep 1, 2016 6:56 AM

I was checking out some games for sale at a local pawn shop that where all way over priced at $10 for loose carts (mostly commons). Came across miner 2049er, which isn't a bad price at $10, then realized it felt quite light, upon closer inspection noticed there was no board, just an empty shell!!  :mad:

So many games aren't tested so blunders happen.

#3574961 Atari confessions. Confess your sins

Posted by totallyterrificpants on Fri Aug 19, 2016 8:36 AM

I agree on the community.  I also like the SegaAge community, too.  That's so small it's like a forum with friends, I like it.




#3570422 Took a walk through a modern arcade last weekend...

Posted by totallyterrificpants on Fri Aug 12, 2016 10:04 AM

Arcades I've been in are either old fashioned skill games for tokens, smartphone games on the big screen, two light gun games and always a Daytona machine.  Kids don't know old arcade games.  I'm only 25 and I know people my age who have never heard of Dig Dug or Q*Bert.  I also know people who have never heard of The Goonies...It's scary.

I've only played Pac Man VCS once for about 2 minutes.

I don't own Pitfall.  I have a HES compilation with it, a clone called Tom Boy and Pitfall II but no Pitfall.  Every copy I find is overpriced.

 

E.T. is one of my favourite 2600 games.

Chicks dig it when you're a member of Pitfall Harry's Explorer's Club.
