  1. I bought my Coleco Flashback 5 yesterday at walmart for just under 40 bucks, which is a STEAL when you consider that most single video games in general cost 40 bucks! It was a very hard decidsion. I knew I could only afford one flashback system. They also had the Atari flashback 5 which surprisingly included Ron Lloyd's Adventure II for the 5200 as well as some rare titles I never even heard of, and Im dang collector!!! They also had the Intellevision Flashback and the Genesis flashback system which even had a cart slot. When I get the money I should go back and buy those other ones too. I havent had time to test out the Coleco yet, but the reason I bought it is because I figured it would be nice to have a new, working system, because my original coleco is getting more and more like the NES when it comes to reliability. Also, I liked the fact that I got the new controllers with it which seem to be much easier to use than the original ones which I always hated. I was surprised teh genesis systems werent all sold out. just to think, all that for only 40 bucks!!!

  5. the raw footage shown at 3:17 - Is that a piece of the video documentary coming out, or is there a video on youtube already showing more of this?
  6. nothing wrong with being old. the younger generations suck.
  7. I went and tried to use my supercharger for the first time in like 10 years last night, and couldnt figure out what was wrong. It just says "rewind tape" and "press play" on the screen at the same time. I had my 'Stella gets a new Brain' CD in the CD player and the wires hooed up, but it doesnt seem to load anything. Do these superchargers go bad or what? Ive got a bunch of Activision games that quit working on me also, and am not happy with this problem. Any suggestions?
  8. you guys are posting pics of shit i never even knew existed!

    The upper rigght hand corner of Ateri Age shows different fun facts each time you log in. Today I read one that said, " Coleco produced a 2600 clone called the Gemini.". Funny thing is, I never knew that. I always thought that the Gemini was produced by blank tape company, Gemini. I have audio and video tapes which say Gemini. Are we now saying that these are actually made by Coleco? (not that it even matters I guess)
  10. that feedback score doesnt mean jack. Ebay wants their sellers to looks good, so they can sell more! It doesnt look good if the complaints were there. Always remember, get the money first, ship second. The only exception is an AA marketplace trade.
  11. Kaboom: one of my top favrite games for the VCS. Paddle games ROCK
  12. Thanks for your detailed, experienced information, Osgeld. I had no idea a screwdriver would pop that off like that. I fixed it and it works as good as new. Perhaps some day Ill upgrade to one of the other options people have nmentioned here, but for now, this was great.
  13. I probably have one here, but mine was a tower model, it didnt look like that.
  14. thank you for all the advise. I will think it all over and decide.
