  1. Surprised no one's yet mentioned Castle Crisis. Excellent updated version of 2600 Warlords.
  2. Picked up a very clean, fully functional 130XE to replace my dingy, yellowed non-working example. The machine I had as a teenager. Also recently got a good deal on an old Apple II green phosphor monitor to eventually set up with my XEP-80. It will sit proudly next to a Commodore 1702. Isn't it nice when we all get along? 😆
  3. The B-key was a third party full-stroke keyboard for the 400.
  4. 👍 Did the same with my first 400. The B-key doesn't quite ruin the style of the 400, but it just doesn't look right.
  5. "It's not subtle!"

      I’m sure it means something. But none of us knows what.

      Haha!... I've seen Tori Amos in concert, so I feel I got an extra big laugh out of this one haha...Ya know...They should really do a Home Movies/Bob's Burgers crossover!  That would be Awesome!  

  6. First night of a four-day weekend. Life is good.

      Lucky bastard!

  7. Haven't gotten into it yet (hence being one of my choices) but Star Vagrant looks to have some have serious depth to it. Dungeon Hunt is still uncompleted by me, and DH II appears to offer much more. Solid choices, I think.
  8. Somewhat off-topic, but I've always wanted to use an Apple Imagewriter II with my Atari. Anyone ever do something like that?
  9. Star Raiders - duh! Lode Runner (disk version with construction set, not the cart) Aquatron - fantastic shooter. Great American Cross Country Road Race - edging out Pole Position for my favorite racer. Dungeon Hunt II and Star Vagrant - my two most recent homebrew acquisitions that I'll have time to properly enjoy. Mac/65 - like many others, I never took the time to properly learn 6502 assembly. Turbo BASIC XL - I can't even use Atari BASIC anymore. Vastly superior. Dr. Mario (for getting my Nintendo NES fix) and Planetfall (my favorite text adventure) are very close runners-up. Might choose one over one of the programming languages. Mapping the Atari is an excellent (and obvious) choice for the book, but I'll go with Atari Graphics and Arcade Game Design. A fine technical volume with lots of info and examples in both BASIC and Assembly. And of course...
  10. Congrats to the Courageous Cougars for their Kitten Bowl 2020 victory!

  11. Doing the same tonight. Love the weekends! Movie, pizza and booze with Adrian! She's awesome!

  12. Watching Back To The Future in bed with my awesome girlfriend, pizza and drinks. Life is good indeed.

  13. My copy arrived in the US today. Such a spectacular package! I'm really looking forward to making time to enjoy this.
  14. I want to live in a world where Kenny Loggins performs every movie soundtrack.

      Go listen to the song from Caddyshack 2 real quick. Might change your mind. :lol:

      I just did, and I respectfully disagree. Long live the 80s!
