  1. What's a classic game you love that seems to be lesser known?

      Assault by Namco - licensed to Atari. A top-down tank shooter. Lots of levels. The strategy is different for each and evolves as the game progresses.

      @BydoEmpire  So you're the other person who likes it! Haha!  If this world goes to Hell in a handbasket,  BydoEmpire will be my tailgunner,  no question!

      Oh,..just thought of one more!  Ultimate Qix for Sega Genesis!  (LOVE that game!  Could play it over & over & over again)    I know I should have stopped at one...Just seems like I like a lot of stuff that's "lesser known".

  2. Never thought this day would come. Thinking of parting with my rare Colecovision CIB collection. Might be time to let others appreciate these items.

      One led to the other, so maybe a bit of both. I don't have the tools or experience to replace the controller chip in my rgb modded colecovision, so I haven't been able to play in a while. Kinda bums me out. I also have almost all the original releases CIB except a couple in the top ten.. realized I'm not sure if I want to chase them down, so maybe I can help someone else complete their collection.

      My other hobbies involve some investment as well, so some extra money would help me enjoy those things (synthesizers and pinball). The pandemic killed my income, so I might shift some stuff around to things I can enjoy like recording music and playing my pinball machines, without having to dip into savings.

      I'm starting to spec out the last retro-vintage PC I'll likely build. It's purpose is to bolster up my Windows XP stuff and keep it all viable for years to come. Like the last Hubble servicing mission.

  3. About to go play in my first pinball tournament.. I only found out about it yesterday. I wish I was more prepared.

      Wow! 90 is a great effort!

    3. WispFollower


      @AtariBrian be careful, you will probably fill your inbox saying something like that.

    4. WispFollower


      @nanochess Thank you! I have seven of the "rare ten," so I mostly just need the easy ones.

  20. I'm so fed up with the local usps. They can't deliver a package correctly to save their lives! What a bunch of Clavins!

    4. Amstari


      Seen them twice, amazing both times. There is a rumour they will be coming to Australia as part of the Soundwave festival.
