  1. The original Sony PlayStation wasn't the only gaming hardware to see a September '95 North American release...

     

    Happy 25th to the Atari Jaguar CD!  Only 11 official titles were released on the platform and a meager 20,000 units are reported to have been produced. 

     

    Celebrate the launch of the doomed Atari Jaguar peripheral with this montage of the 11 official releases, Virtual Light Machine and more!

      @SlidellMan, I agree 💯! That's the real saving grace of the platform. Although it seems that homebrew releases on CD have slowed now that carts are easier to produce. It will be interesting to see how many more CD releases come out moving forward.

  2. If you want to amuse yourself, post an ad on CL with a "make offer" for the price. I was thinning out the collection, so I posted a mint black GameCube, 2 controllers, all connections, and a sealed copy of Lego Star Wars The Video Game, loose Mario All Stars Baseball and 5 other misc. games. A dude offered me 10 bucks. I'd pay for a premium CL account if they'd administer sanity tests to their users and weed out the nutjob loonies.

      You mean the "save ya room" pitch isn't compelling? Damn.

  3. Went to a rummage sale held by two ladies. One of them said to me, "We're dealing...and drinking. Not necessarily in that order."

  4. Best Motley Crue album?

      Best produced: Dr. Feelgood. Favorite: Shout at the Devil

  5. Make a modernized Missile Command VR for the PS4/PC. Would you back me?

  6. If I smoke a pile of Marlboros I can send away for a red Atari Lynx? Awesome! Genius cross promotion guys....video games and cigarettes. LOL

      It was a pretty vile cross-promotion considering the target market of the Lynx.

  8. Not sure how I feel about the British independence. Is it more hype for both sides?

      SabertoothRetro

      Just don't look at your retirement accounts for awhile. On the bright side, with the pound tanking it might be time to take that trip to England.

      Its a shame that they couldn't work through their issues for the final tour. I think that Vinny Appice should have got the call as a stand-in.

  11. Finally getting to my Megadeth interviews. I'm gonna have Chris Poland on my next show! Listening to plenty of Megadeth this morning! \m/ Gonna ask him what kind of arcade games did Dave Mustaine play while drunk.

    1. SabertoothRetro

      SabertoothRetro

      Poland!!!! Killing Is My Business... has become my go to MD album in the last few years. Obviously Peace Sells is a classic too. Plus, now Poland is working with Menza in OHM. I'll have to tune in.

  12. Well, it looks like I have to turn my gameroom/office into a nursery. I never thought that I'd be happy to pack up my Atari stuff. :)

      Thanks all! We're really excited. Maybe I'll pitch the "daddy corner" idea @bomberpunk. ;)

  13. Just found PacLand for the Lynx for $25 from the Netherlands. Thats a pricey one i've been trying to track down for a while!! Score!!

    1. SabertoothRetro

      SabertoothRetro

      Pacland is still available from Video61 for $25 and from Best for $29. I got it from one of them awhile back. Once you get to Lemmings and the Telegames releases, the Lynx starts feeling like a Jaguar.

  14. This just in... another Jaguar topic locked! lol

      You could see that coming from post No. 1. I'm glad that received an inoculation for the fumes. It lets me enjoy the Jaguar AND maintain my grip on reality.

  15. My wife is having surgery today and I'm in the waiting room. If all goes well, I'll be here for eight hours. How does an Atari fan kill time and keep his mind off of worry? By bringing his Lynx, 10 games and two sets of batteries. Wish us luck!

    1. SabertoothRetro

      Thanks again for all of the positivity! The wife is doing ok and should be discharged in a few more hours.

      LOL. I've been using these Li-ion batteries lately and get a lot more play time than I used too. I doubt that I'll tap into the second set today.

       

      Surgery went well but they're keeping her overnight. I won't get to see her for another 45 minutes.

  18. Just got back from Judas Priest concert - Halford is amazing. King Diamond tomorow night!!

      Nice! I think Richie Faulkner has injected some energy into Priest. Did they play anything off of Stained Class?

      Thundercats was tons better but there was a certain intangible quality to Silverhawks that I always enjoyed.

  20. Test drove the BMW i3 at the local National Electric Drive event. I love my LEAF, and I wouldn't splurge on the BMW, but damn was it a cool car. It felt like how I thought driving in the future would feel like, except without the flying. :)

    1. SabertoothRetro

      SabertoothRetro

      LOL. I guess I opened myself up for that. If you see me, please say hello. :)

       

      There are actually more than 135,000 LEAFs sold globally as of this month; 60,000 in the U.S. A drop in the global car market bucket but not bad for new tech and better than several conventional models. One more model year and there will be more LEAFs than Atari Jaguars. :)

  21. Covered my copy of master of puppets in wood glue. This is probably one of the more questionable things i've done

      Yikes. You'd think they would have better quality control. I hope that this technique works for you.

      I've read that this can clean and restore vinyl. Too bad you didn't have a copy of St. Anger to test it on. :)

      Looking forward to it!
