Doesn't it blow your mind that this game is 28 years old now? When this was a meme (1999) the Atari VCS was only 22 years old.

 

I really enjoyed watching the unboxing and I think it's cool that you wanted to savor playing it on the TV. I feel the same way when I have an original cart. I want to play the original cart on the actual console rather than on a multi-cart or emulator.

 

Good video, good commentary! Thanks for sharing your joy!

Thank you Mezrabad! I probably should have played it on the actual Genesis instead of the Analogue Mega Sg, but I currently have my model 1 unplugged following a major overhaul of my rec room last year (inspired by the pandemic naturally).

Oooh no, I think playing it on the Analogue Mega Sg is great. I'm just saying there's a certain feel to holding a single cart and saying "oh, hey, I have this game." - I have a Cuttle Cart 2 and an Uno and I still enjoy finding actual 2600 carts to play instead of just finding the game on the multi-cart. I don't do that for every game (hell, i can't) but I always play my original Adventure cart for Atari VCS just because it's a cool feeling. xD

Oh hey, did you send yours to Jesse (a/k/a Crossbow) for service? I know he's worked on a few Cuttle Cart 2's including mine. That memory card slot at the top is a little fragile, and they didn't come with the sound chip for Ballblazer built in, so I had him add one while he was at it. There aren't many out there in the wild -- he told me it was something of a rarity AFTER I had dropped it in a standard envelope and the postal service nearly lost it. OOPS! Thankfully all was well in the end.

Interesting! I never knew that about the Ballblazer chip. (I've got a a Ballblazer cart though, so I guess I'm not worried.)

 

I actually thought I'd lost my CC2. I hadn't seen it in quite sometime (years, at least) and only recently found it again in a box of Intellivision carts. I think I put it in there during a brain fart thinking it was CC3. (which looks totally different, of course, but brain fart)

Oh I've got a Ballblazer cart too, but for the convenience of playing the ROM (or any homebrew that uses it) it's nice to have the chip in there. :D
