  1. Did you know if you mess with cheats in MAME and enable invincibility  in puckman/pacman, you can (with some finagling) make the demo get all the way up to the key, intermissions included?

      @retrorussell Ah nice that sounds pretty interesting actually! Let me know when you have your vid up. :)

  3. Hot Take: Pixels is the best "video game" movie when it comes to the source material. 

    1. Rogerpoco


      I actually own a copy of that, like the stars of the movie just fine, and video games are pretty much all I do anymore, besides space rocks.

      Never watched it, and I'm not exactly sure why, I think I am afraid I'll be disappointed.

    2. GoldLeader


      I liked it.  Just don't expect too much and you shouldn't be disappointed.  I went in with low expectations for some reason,  like there's no deep cuts...Ya might see a character from Galaga or Pac Man, but you're not gonna see Pulsar, Star Castle, and Satan's Hollow featured haha...

  4. People are panicking over the wuhan virus and toilet paper is sold out everywhere

      Fast forward over 5 months later: Cheap paper plates are somewhat scarce and Lysol disinfectant spray (+generic brands) are still extremely hard to find.

      What is a lifelong germaphobe to do in these <gaghh> "uncertain times" ???

    4. GoldLeader


      @RodLightning Exactly!   You've nailed it!

  5. So apparently there was a Galaga 88/91 released for the Game Gear. My mind is totally blown as I had zero friggin idea all these years. lol

      The Game Gear library is somehow infinite.

    3. save2600


      Did it enjoy the same success as the SMS south of the equator or what? 

    4. Zoyous


      It seemed to have similar fortunes in just about every market around the world - a distant second place among all the handhelds. But that was enough to amass nearly 11 million consoles sold.

      It was so long ago I don't even remember what I used.. but it was probably one of the 1st custom avatars here at Atariage when there were only about 10-20 people who signed up for the forum. :)


      Actually now I think I remember I most likely used a program that made animated GIFs from the makers of Jasc Paint Shop Pro, since that is what I used to use.

      what year did this place begin?



  6. One day we'll look back at this whole Wuhan Virus time and remember: There sure were a lot of "montage" commercials!

      But you can't hear the sound on anything else!

      Listened to Steve Winwood "Roll With It" album on vinyl the other night.


       Blows the Spotify version out of the water!


      Though the same system:  1958 Harman Kardon tube amp with Cerwin-Vega speakers!



  8. Guys.. do NOT take a video of your screen while you play 2600 Moon Patrol for a high score contest because that is apparently a violation.

      I got a message from YouTube saying that they may flag stuff even though it doesn't need to be because the flaggers are working from home and it's an algorithm working that may not work correctly. Thanks to the COVID-19.

    3. NE146


      lol nope. I linked the video above.. watch it and see. The primary audio is the annoying sound of me bashing the NES Advantage button! (I played it on an NT-Mini) 😛

    4. doctorclu


      Truly weird, and I have made videos on Moon Patrol in the past.   Even the Atari ST version which is closer to the arcade version.


  9. Things are getting real now :(

      Great, now I gotta go to the store to buy sausages for ground meat!

      Been there, Done That, Deleted it. Haven't regretted it since.

  11. Thinking about catching Rise of Skywalker this weekend but holy crap locations and showtimes are already pretty scarce. Movies sure don't last long anymore...

      Saw it twice, enjoyed it quite a bit, best of the new series.  It tied up a lot of things and was pretty well done, all things considered.  Could have been way worse.

    3. Flojomojo


      It's my least favorite of the sequel trilogy, but way better than Rogue One and Solo. I liked it a lot more on the second viewing. @NE146 there are a zillion pirate copies online now, probably ripped from Oscar screener discs, if you don't want to wait 3 weeks for video.

    4. wongojack


      Woah - better than Rogue One?  I get why you'd say that about Solo, but Rogue 1?

  12. Last Christmas, I gave you my fart

    But the very next day, you waved it away : (

      This year I'll save it for someone special.

    3. NE146


      Well the best part is tomorrow.. Cyber Friday!

    4. Flojomojo


      Next Friday is a good one, Friday the 13th! Free hockey mask with purchase of a machete. Some restrictions apply. 

  14. What's the hot Black Friday deals?

    1. Flojomojo


      Buy Nothing Day. 100% off everything, no clutter in your suitcase or living space. 

    2. Zeptari1


      Yes! Stay home and play Atari day!

      I only went to one store during the afternoon and bought just two games. Beating the ever-living crap out of each other in a free-for-all to get to all the hot deals only sounds good on paper.

  15. She just loves my big 10 inch.. vinyl of her favorite blues!

      Get her into vintage computing and impress with your 5.25" floppy.

      I hear that every time I go to my daughter's and my granddaughter's on the Xbox. Sonic Racing's her favourite game outside of Minecraft. She's 6. Still hasn't got the idea of sliding around corners for a boost, though.

      I miss SEGA's arcadey presentations.

      After learning about a lot of past activity, I think the government capable of what is claimed.  Also, I can't stand Mark Z.  But just the same, that's just info on the net.  They're a bit light on evidence.

  19. Should I return my unopened Xbox One X back to Costco (I already have an original Xbone), and get a PS4 instead (since I don't have a PS4)?

      I'd buy the PS4, but that's me. I've always preferred SONY's consoles to Microsoft's.

    3. NE146


      I got the Xbone X because of the improved features. But then now I'm like.. why? I'm going for the PS4.

    4. DragonGrafx-16


      I just got a PS3 last year and so by the time I get a PS4 the PS5 would be out lol...

      You need to create a whacking emoji from your avatar. That would be awesome.
