  2. Definitely interested in new sports games for the 2600!
  3. Yeah good one indeed! Really enjoy the videos featuring sports
  4. There's that erroneous "Game Tape" reference again..
  5. Really enjoyed the video man I like to fashion myself as a connoisseur of older sports video games, and ashamedly have never heard of XOR's NFL Challenge. Looks like a fantastic game that I'd sure I'd have enjoyed back in the day. We had Football for the TI-99 4a which was very similar to that, but a bit more basic. Have never played a 5200, and the football game on that, looks like I must give a try. Loved the first Madden and spent way too much time designing plays with the editing feature. Just a fun game. I'll second the hockey video, as that would be fun as well.
  6. Biiiiig swing and a miss! Adventure will still be on the top of my favorite Atari games, but yeah, no thanks on the book.
  7. Definitely used to do the Basketball one. In fact if you slowly pulled the one player away and then back, you could get interesting bouncing patterns which in return had some pretty bitchin' beats.
  8. I too love sports games. Really enjoy the designers' interpretations of the particular sport. Activision's Tennis is a fantastic game. Though my favorite would indeed be Football. Just played so much of that game as a kid. As well as Basketball. Ice Hockey also from Activision is a dandy as well..
  9. "It was 1980 something and....." Is how the beginning of the show usually goes.. and then it's a retrospective look upon someone's life on the 80's. When you look back on the 80's doesn't it all kinda blend together? Aren't your stories a bit jumbled and mixed up? I know mine are.. that is how I imagine the show might have a look at the 80's.
  10. oh that thing is sweet! nice find man..
  11. We got ours Christmas of 1980.. yeah doesn't help you, but there you go. Though now that I think about it, a neighborhood kid had Superman well before we even had an Atari.. I'll have to think on this. He also had Adventure as well, but the next time I visited the kid, his father returned the game because there was no score or timer and thought it wasn't really a game..(idiot)
  12. Upon seeing your initial post, I quickly looked to see where you are from.. Most of the kids in my neighborhood, including my brother and myself, where totally smitten by Dodge 'Em and Basketball early days in the Atari. That's all we would play before other games appeared. Two great games indeed..
  13. Also! probably the best Kickstarter video ever haha
  14. I'm in for the book + t-shirt!
  15. looks like a fun game! albeit with annoying sound effect thanks for sharing man..
  16. Ok.. I'll say it! I really love sports games.. Skiing, Boxing, Tennis, Football(yes plain Atari Football), Baseball, Basketball, Winter Games, Summer Games - all of it! Really like the programmers interpretation of the sport and how it's captured in the game.. the simplicity of head to head gaming. Love it!
  17. Man.. the arrival of the Sears Wishbook was just as welcomed as Santa cruising through the neighborhood, high up on a firetruck. We'd fight over who got to go through it first, meticulously pouring over each and every word, caefully examining each photo. And then back through again. And then again once more.
  18. Yeah we've been playing a bit of Track +Field, also Decathlon, Boxing and Basketball.
  19. I know very little about 2600 programming, but what a fantastic idea! Good luck man!
  20. Put me down for the Skiing Patch, please good sir..
  21. How cool would it be to have a proper Adventure MMO?
  22. I notice the boys are branching out from their podcast ventures http://www.jimmygsteaks.com/
