  1. Same. There is a lot to criticize about the implementation of the VCS but it exists and isn't a scam. The folks named above largely went quiet on VCS once it was delivered to backers. The people who actually have one are - in general - enjoying it. That's what matters.
  2. Thrustlander is probably my favorite VCS game. I've easily spent the most time with it, slowly working my way through each variation of each level. It's got a ton of variety and is the best implementation of the Classic Joystick so far. Its a great example of a retro-inspired modern game. Well worth a look if you have a VCS.
  3. I'd like to see a Jaguar or Lynx edition of the Vault.
  4. - Major Havoc - Dude from Secret Quest - Elf Archer from Millepede - Berthilda, the Gem Eater, Nasty Tree and Skeleton from Crystal Castles - Skylar from Cybermorph I think that one of the challenges with this exercise is that many Atari games just didn't have a well defined character that players could identify with. I mean, do we really want to be the Pong Paddle? This is probably one reason Atari Karts only had Bentley Bear with a host of generic characters. I've always felt a good approach for Atari would be to use their IP for the environments. Imagine how much cooler Atari Karts would have been with asteroids raining from the sky... A similar approach could be used with a fighter.
  5. I'd love to see it on the VCS but Primal Rage was an Atari Games arcade property. Unless Atari Inc. worked out a licensing deal with Warner Interactive Entertainment (the current license holder of Atari Games' properties, including Primal Rage) it is unlikely. Dare to dream though!
  6. I'm definitely picking this one up tomorrow. It looks right up my alley!
  7. I got it on Monday along with reBOOTed but work has been a bear so just about two hours of play time so far this work. Hoping to get some real time with both titles tonight and tomorrow.
  8. I tried this today and I got as far as logging in and selecting a game (Panzer Dragoon Remake) when I received a message that I was attempting to use an unsupported OS. Apparently, while it will work through Chrome, that is limited to Windows, Mac and Android devices. Assuming that somebody running in PC Mode could get it to work from Windows but it looks like a no go in Atari OS.
  9. This update looks pretty cool. I've logged on a few times and it's great fun when others are playing.
  10. Super Methane Bros. - Someone Call Pest Control This is one I had never played prior to the Tournament Challenge. It's a single life score attack challenge. The game reminds me of Bubble Bobble.
  11. Joust - Egg Hunter A time limited Tournament Challenge where the goal is to collect as many eggs as possible in 3 minutes. Essentially, the game is set-up to repeat the Wave 5 ("Egg Wave") over and over for three minutes. You can't die except by lava but it gets pretty chaotic once the buzzards start hatching.
  12. I've really enjoyed the Antstream service on the VCS and love the Tournaments and ongoing Challenges. Use this thread to to share your username, thoughts on active challenges and tournament rankings. Find me: SabertoothRetro
  13. These worked for me if anyone is looking. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07DWRSBR7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_N67559M6RSYTY3F784P7?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
  14. I received a follow-up from Antstream. They say that the issue has been fixed and will be in the next update.
  15. 4,500 to start. I haven't spent enough time grinding for upgrades. Also, I'm moving at the end of the week and my VCS is the only console I have left hooked up. Everything else is packed.
  16. I already received a response that they're aware of the issue and are working on it. They will send me an email once it's resolved.
  17. I filed a support ticket. I do not anticipate a fix but I figure the more noise being made, the more likely a fix.
  18. I really enjoy Antstream. In particular, the tournament challenges for short bursts of gaming goodness. Have others had a hit or miss experience with Antstream remembering login information? Sometimes I have to log back in, even when re-entering the app without powering down the VCS.
  19. That must be frustrating. I have this problem with the modern controller but only if the console is sleeping. I think that's a known issue. Otherwise I haven't had any issues with pairing.
  20. I had put this down for a few days. Came back to it exhausted from work and beat King Tarr on the first go. I guess I needed to be on autopilot. It's funny how that happens. The game is well worth the price and a ton of fun. It's a good few hours of entertainment at least and something that will appeal to gamers and non-gamers.
  21. My GF and I tried out several of the Airconsole games over the weekend. She liked it so much that she bought the annual subscription.
  22. I am at King Tarr and - wow - this last boss is quite a challenge. Its enough to rage quit and break one of these sweet VCS controllers. 😂🕹️😬
  23. I downloaded Spear Master this morning and it's quite a fun game. It definitely has that "just one more time" quality to it. I love the graphic style and colorful characters you meat along the way. 30+ levels in - the snow environment - and I'm having a blast. Recommended!
