  1. Including the official website. It would be nice to see it there -- it still shows last year's stuff. https://www.atgames.us/collections/productline I was one of the first to get an Atari Flashback Portable because that was the only place to buy it at first.
  2. If I learned nothing else from Star Wars: Heir to the Empire, I know that clone 4's name is misspelled. should be Albeert
  3. Nice street taco kit from Costco for tonight. We eat. 🌮 🌮 🌮 🌮 🌮 🌮 🌮 🌮 🌮
  4. Preorders for Star Wars via Walmart and GameStop seem to have closed. Do you think these will be hard to find? I would think the $500 price would scare people away.
  5. Not sure I understand the question, but they discovered it themselves, without our "help" as far as I can tell.
  6. Hey retro technology fans! It's a screen less smart watch that communicates via Morse code! On Indiegogo, of course. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/xtactor-smart-wristband-screenless-smartwatch#/ found via the r/shittykickstarters group, which has some Ataribox chatter from time to time.
  7. Oops, it's "only" $40 after shipping. But it comes with a golden ticket! Cotton/polyester/rayon! It's like a sandbox of fabrics.
  8. As the Mashable summary points out, The person calling it a "shitshow" might have been under a non disclosure agreement, but leaked facts are still facts. Maybe "Atari" should send out some more $30 T-shirts to earn some trust back. They could steal Amico's idea and charge $50 after shipping, with more mysterious promises of good things to come! Engadget has a link in its news roundup, and says Seems like a missed opportunity to talk about how nasty the IGG policy is. Refunds are going to be hard to get. The backers have pixel mushrooms in their heads and seem unlikely to be able to get enough together to bring a lawsuit.
  9. Just sayin'. Isn't it weird how some people feel the need to make everything into tribal warfare? As if one unreleased retro thing MUST "compete" against another unreleased retro thing, because people can't have more than one, or neither? Rivals for the "ATARI VCS" include, but are not limited to: Cheap Windows PC AppleTV Hoop and stick Wooden paddle with elastic string and ball Fond memories of middle school in the 1980s Nintendo SIXTY-FOOOOOOUUUUURRRRR Cheap Chinese clone consoles Xbox one Playstation 4 (or maybe the 5 will be out by then) Demolition crew for GameStop retail stores Animal husbandry Baking a cake Learning a language Piano lessons Playing outside Smoking in the sun to accelerate cancer growth Sitting quietly and awaiting death
  10. I think that would have landed like the Henry Ford quote (paraphrased) " -- if I asked my customers what they wanted, they'd say "a faster horse." Nobody outside the VCS group knows how effective or durable the sexy stick really is. It seems floppy and fragile to me, especially the spinning aspect. Maybe it's great and worth $50 but my confidence is low.
  11. I think they're allowed if you don't suggest that they're "candy cigarettes," like they did when I was a kid. They had names like Pell Mell (instead of Pall Mall) back then, too. Those things are NOT tasty.
