  1. 2600 Defender II was first released as Stargate

    1. SoundGammon


      There was a lawsuit against Williams who used the name Stargate and Atari was a codefendant in the case. Case was lost so the name had to be changed.

  2. The Atari 7800 was ready in 1984, but not released until 1986 to compete with the NES.

      Wasnt to compete with the NES. Stupid A$$ Jack Tramiel Thought computers was the way to go. Stops the 7800 in favor of computers

    3. BydoEmpire


      I thought it was resolving legal/payment issues w/ GCC that was the real reason for the delay. There was a thread about it... truth probably depends on a combination of factors.

  3. Astro Blaster! That looks pretty cool

  4. miss you guys! *hugs* except the hairy monkey...*smirks*

      I think the monkey dieded. He went to take a BM and took an XM instead.

      Yeah, I love a clean shaven woman, too.

  6. Atari 5200 Meteorites was originally called Disasteroids but the name was changed under pressure from Atari

    1. Corby


      So much pressure

    2. S1500

      Bald with one eye?

    2. pangasinan

  10. Secret Quest was the last game released for the 2600 in the U.S..

  11. I blew my tranny....

    1. fdurso224


      I personally like manual transmission cars because they tend to last longer! My Yugo is a 4-speed manual and its 28 years old. It doesn't use transmission fluid. They use gear oil on manuals trannies!

      I have a '99 Ranger if that says anything.. Haha. Think im going back to manual.

    3. fdurso224


      @SiLic0ne t0aD85: The Ranger is a great little pick up truck and many parts are shared with the Explorer especially the 4.0 L Cologne V6 Motor! Too bad Ford halted production on them in the U.S.! They were great!

  13. it was a long hard road... but I've achieved 100 reputation points! getting close to Al!

  14. After leaving Atari, Nolan Bushnell went on to start Chuck E. Cheese Pizza.

    1. Albert


      I haven't been inside one in MANY years. Probably you'd get dirty looks if you went inside without any kids in tow!

    2. BigO


      No kids: that's one of the reasons I've never set foot inside of said establishment.

      The Usotsuki

      I was at one in the mid-90s in Wappinger Falls, after last being at the one in Mattydale in the mid-80s. It paled; there were fewer auds, there were only 2 or 3 arcade games instead of the big huge frickin' game room the older one had.

  15. You stupid bastards. All this trash talk and belittling, and "I" get my status update privileges revoked. what the fuck is wrong with some of you? I've been waiting for a long time for the 25th anniversary 7800, and XM both paid for, and I've never cried one bit. So if you don't want to wait...then ask for a refund and shut up! I've been a member here since 2008, and I had to be (to everyones expectations) good and civil, or a whole certain bunch of you, will gang up and try to get rid of someone cause they're not "behaving" to their liking! Kiss my ass! No more! Don't like it? too bad. Go cry to a Mod, or go cry to Albert.. maybe he will answer you cause that goof won't answer any of my emails concerning my status updating. I'm NOT going any where! But I wouldn't be surprised if curt does finish up the XM and then tells you all to shove it up your asses, and leaves.
  16. looks like i hurt a lot of "feelings" yesterday! This pleases me! Guess you can say I flushed out the "Drama queens" of A.A.

    1. OldSchoolRetroGamer


      What SoulBlazer said. Also, I am not part of it, I have no stake in it, just an observation but yeah YOU have been the "Drama" Queen and coming off as an ASS lately, everyone GETS it, you are oh-so-cool, now knock it off. There is a reason most of your comments / replies are negative, it's YOU and the attitude.

      At this point you are trolling, congrats!
