  1. I saw a link within the last 48 hrs but I can't remember where. Had a breakdown with what games were in what version of Flashback 8. Basic / Gold / Activision Gold and which ones were exclusive to which version. Can't find where that link went now. Anyone have it? Danke. Edit: Found it. Was here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3crT89BHvGiUzMtR3FDendmQVE/view
  2. Yesterday I ordered a Harmony cartridge. I'm going to try and introduce the old 2600 to my kids, and thought that would be the way to go vs trying to re-create all of my old collection all over again. However, downloading all the roms one by one will be a tedious procedure. Does anyone (atariage?) have a downloadable zip of all the 2600 roms offered in one place? If not, I'll do it the hard way, but I was looking to save some time and grab them all at once. Does such a beast exist, and if so, where? Danke.
  3. Sounds good. Not demanding or anything, was just curious.
  4. Given it's now mid November, are there any recent updates on when Vol II will come out? I enjoyed Vol I immensely, have been looking forward to Vol II since. Also, you don't have anything to do with this guy, do you? https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-W8fMaOxmIt3pPPoeTE7Aw
  5. I got mine delivered today (Sunday) - I'm in one of those towns (Dallas) where the USPS delivers for Amazon on Sundays. Was there when I got home from church. As my kid was sick today (plus I had to work a bit), I didn't have a ton of time to plow into it, but from what I have seen it looks really nice! Can't wait to see what you do for "Lost Luggage". That's one of those lesser known, not really great games that my brother and I got a kick out of growing up.
  6. For the record, I bought the iBook version anyway. Still think it could have been nicer, but I did support it.
  7. I checked out the sample at the iTunes store, and I agree with the other comments. It doesn't look anything like the print book, and that's a bummer. You can request a sample from the iTunes store, and it gives you apparently one chapter. The one on Activision Decthalon. Yes, I understand that it has the extra video footage, and that's way cool, but the VERY NICE looking layout I see in the screen grabs from the physical book is not there and THAT is the disappointment. I've read all the msgs up to this point, and I can appreciate the WHY of it. But it is still pretty spartan on the iBooks side. I could overlook that, but the other digital format doesn't have that restriction, so it feels like a bit of a bummer. I know it is possible to do this with a Kindle publication, as I bought this book through the Kindle store, and it has a truckload of videos embedded in it. So it CAN be done. I just don't know the technical side of it enough to know how or recommend a path to achieve it.

  9. I wonder if it's time to bring this up again. http://www.3drealms.com/duke4/dnf2600.html
  10. Where is this thing? It's been listed in Amazon.com forever. The link I'm aware of for it is this: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00093DHIK/73407921 It's also listed at Best Buy here: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?sk...d=1118842310422 Walmart.com has it here: http://www.walmart.com/catalog/product.gsp...duct_id=3942996 buy.com is here: http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=...98&loc=108&sp=1 Walmart says October 4th as a release date. Is that accurate? I've seen posts from people here who have it, did I miss something and it was released already?
  11. 2600 Cartridges: http://2600.siegler.net/oldpics/everything.jpg 2600 Hardware: http://2600.siegler.net/hardware.jpg I have an Xbox and Gamecube out in the living room - don't have real good pics of those.
  12. Bump. What happened to this thing? Did it ever come out? I would think it would have been out for the holiday season.
  13. Looks like Thomas Jentzsch posted the same time as me.
  14. http://www.atariage.com/software_page.html...wareLabelID=840 Frog Pond.
  15. No, not Frogger. It was a game similar in gameplay to Frogs & Flies.
  16. My memory says there were two frog games. A co worker here came in and asked me about a frog game - I remembered M Network's Frogs & Flies. I could have sworn there was another frog game similar to that. Anyone remember what it is? I'm drawing a blank.
  17. See my sig. There's a few more that need to be added after my brother's visit to PC5.
  18. Well quite frankly Mike, we didn't expect much else. He got a nine in Circus Atari a year ago. You'd think he'd get better.
  19. I'm sure folks here remember the TV series Dallas. Well, SoapNet has been running the show daily for several months now. They started at the beginning and are running through all of it. Anyway, the episode that aired this past Friday had an Atari 2600 appearance. In it, Cliff Barnes & Mark Grayson are playing 2600 Missile Command. As the camera pulls around a scene, you get a shot of them with joysticks in hand, and the console on a table. They don't linger on the console at all, but the geek in me had to figure out which they had. It appeared to be a Vader console variant. The episode in question (titled "Some Do.. Some Don't" aired Jan 20, 1984. Would have been filmed somewhere in the fall of 1983. Kind of interesting. I recognized them playing Missile command right away, then I realized it was the 2600 version (only one base). Got rather excited - had a major geek moment noticing that.
  20. Go read this. All of it. Makes ET seem like a great game. http://www.gamespot.com/pc/driving/bigrigs...trr/review.html
  21. Why stop at 1984? There were games released after that.
