  1. Next they will announce a delay because they got a virus... like the "Core-OnAh" virus... it corrupts cores in your processor you know... but they are still working hard around the clock to get these out to the backers! Stay TUNED! Norton will have an anti-virus update for Atari in WEEKS! Not months... MrBlackCat
  2. I don't have time, but I certainly wish someone would put together a commemorative Taco Controller for this... I looked through my old controllers box and had many idea, but I just can't pull off the spare time. As a collector of odd controllers, I would buy one. MrBlackCat
  3. I predicted... right before I try to order one... glad to be wrong! MrBlackCat
  4. I feel the same... my solution is to pre-order what I wish, but them go to stores and buy with "a crowd of peers" and give one as a gift to another gamer. When Red Dead Redemption came out, and DooM etc, I was at the store anyway, in line with Cowboys and Space Marines respectively... Fun. MrBlackCat
  5. I was working and didn't anticipate there being any left by the time I arrived home... but my email came in at 3:01 CST... shortly before I arrived home, and I GOT ONE! EXCELLENT! Very unexpected! MrBlackCat edit: I got an immediate email from PayPal saying it had gone through.
  6. Galagon arrived a couple of days ago... finally got a chance to play it for a while this evening. Amazing work. So balanced for an Atari 2600 game. Never imagined seeing something with this much diversity on the Atari. This is the first current production game I have bought for the Atari... I plan to do this more often. This isn't just nostalgia overload talking, as this is a really high quality product in so many ways. I don't know what inspires Champ Games to do something like this, but I am very glad something does. MrBlackCat
  7. I ordered Galagon as soon as it was available, and Gorf will be my second purchase I think. This is unbelievable work. MrBlackCat
  8. Awesome! Type 2 Ordered... MrBlackCat
  9. Are these for sale along with the physical game at some point? MrBlackCat
  10. Awesome box art also... I am so buying this. MrBlackCat
  11. I am glad I don't have Steam, so I don't have to pay to stream games I already pay for on another service. How much per hour is it to play the build in 350 games? (JUST KIDDING!) From under my rock, I can't imaging enough people using the streaming service on this machine to even matter... most people that even get what that is are going to just do it a different way... what I am saying is that I see the streaming feature as rather obscure, as opposed to a selling point. This is unless I am way off in my perception of the target market. I just want an arcade cabinet starting point with "good" controls... beyond that, everything is "just features" like the pile of them I don't use on my cell phone either. I will be getting one of these cabinets unless something drastic surfaces... and I think this will be the norm. MrBlackCat
  12. We (myself and CatNapDreams from here) are having Tacos tonight... I am certainly compelled to post an image of this to de-celebrate the Atari IBS or whatever the new "thing" was supposed to be called. *(no offense to those with actual IBS, only used for attempted comedic purposes) MrBlackCat
  13. Been playing the Atari a bit as I haven't in weeks... PacMan, E.T. Galaxian, Frogger... I don't play long honestly, but the idea of playing Galaga on this hardware is fascinating. I have always enjoyed arcade games ported to a system this "low end" as it is interesting what sacrifices are chosen to allow it. I will certainly be buying the physical form of this game when available. While I don't program for the Atari and have no idea how they actually work, I do work as a software engineer for some (non-gaming) systems... but still, having read all of this thread, and considering some of the methods described to get this running, I can compare what was done with original Atari programs and have a good idea of the inventiveness it took to get something like this running so well. Thank you guys again for doing this. Amazing job. MrBlackCat
  14. This thing just keeps getting better and better... I will SO be getting one of these as soon as they are available to purchase. MrBlackCat
  15. Cool! A new Atari flashback in a different case for ten times the price! Just what I wanted... I think sandbox mode is when my dog buries it in the sandbox after I toss it outside just because I have enough Flashbacks. I am really glad I didn't back this thing. They must have figured an easy way out... it would be a dangerous game not to produce now after all that info. At least they finally got an update. I wish best of luck to all those who backed this thing. I hope some people get something that they can enjoy. MrBlackCat
