  1. I believe you could play it on Antstream Arcade? I haven’t tried Antstream myself.
  2. As of right now, the site shows an expected date of the 8th on the GameStop site: https://www.gamestop.com/search/?q=atari+vcs&lang=default No idea if it will just be online orders or they will be getting stock in stores... the All In bundle is the only item with an expected date. The Base system and controllers just show Sold Out. Oh, and the All In product page says that the release date is TBD.

  4. It isn’t about Atari but if you’re interested in the Tramiels and the 6502, I would recommend 8bit Generation - The Commodore Wars.
  5. A couple things to consider is that Edladdin looks to be coming close to releasing 5200 controllers which alleviate that hurdle for you. Also, regarding the 8-bit computer, check out some of the SD card solutions to avoid having to worry about disk drives.
  6. I would go with: - Ms. Pac Man - Commando - Ikari Warriors - Food Fight But it is pretty difficult to pick four for the system. Especially with all the great homebrews.
  7. Atari has the release date as April 30: https://www.atari.com/games/pong-quest/
  8. I was just watching the Rifftrax for the movie, "Martial Law." I was shocked to see a familiar site in the background of the police station. The movie is from 1990 so it would be appropriate for the time.
  9. Being in the US, I was totally unaware of the Dragon 32 until I stumbled upon a video from Retro Man Cave: He does a restore of one. Pretty interesting.
  10. Just placed my order for Volume 1. Looks great!
  11. I saw that the notification for more in stock went into my Spam folder. NOOOOOOOOO!!! Looking forward to being able to order some.
  12. I know that I have been unable to find more than a couple scanned issues of ST Informer. I used to subscribe way back when and wish I had hung onto my issues - though I had never seen that tabloid newspaper format, only a more traditional magazine style.
  13. It would be really cool if someone did a mock-up like some people do when imagining what a new version of macOS or iOS will look like. I also regret selling my Falcon. I had a TT at one time as well *sigh*. Those, along with a Jaguar CD were, in retrospect, really dumb to let go of.
  14. When the Falcon came out I was in college at UMaine which had a huge AppleTalk Network on campus. I remember thinking how cool it would be to be able to connect to the network and print to the laser printers at the library. Instead I made due with trying to configure software to get online using my 2400 baud modem. I never got it working reliably.
