  1. Hi, I've uploaded a video preview of my forthcoming NES book if you guys and gals would like to take a look. I'd love to have feedback either here or in YouTube comments. Watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CamuXAXok4s&t=9s Thanks!
  2. Like a lot of Intellivision fans, I was hoping the Amico would have a cartridge slot for playing old games when I first heard about the console. The more I've thought about, the more I think it would have been a bad idea for the success of the system:
  3. I recently interviewed Activision co-founder Jim Levy if anyone wants to check it out: http://www.brettweisswords.com/2020/05/interview-with-activision-co-founder.html
  4. Check out my crazy collection of vintage video game paperbacks from the 70s, 80s and 90s:

  6. NEW VIDEO -- Should You Criticize a Gaming Console You Haven't Played? Watch here:
  7. Yeah, something like Ultimate Qix, but better would be super cool. Wizard of Wor rocks!
  8. Here are my thoughts on the new Aimco promo video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHF4AooX9Is
  9. Thanks for your comments. I know they've mentioned some of the IPS, I just hope the console brings back those specific genres in a big way. I'm curious why you think calling it Space Armada is a bad idea.
  10. Are there some dead gaming genres you'd like to see the Amico bring back? There are three I'd love for the console to resurrect. Here they are:
  11. Well-said. I have high hopes, but I don't mind measured criticism (as I state in the video), and I will of course post an honest review of the console when it ships. If there are things I don't like about it, I will certainly point them out.
  12. Some YouTubers and podcasters are saying the Intellivision Amico is terrible before it even comes out and before they've had the chance to play it. Watch my video on the topic here:
  13. My Amico videos, including this new one, always spark interesting comments:
