  1. I remember the Shenmue III crowdfunding campaign. It broke Kickstarter's site Yikes! That precisely why I don't bother throwing money at crowdfunding campaigns anymore (Only crowdfunding I like and that i'm ok with is board games but that's a whole other topic and can of worms) They can literally say anything and everything they want in their Kickstarter video to get people to throw money their way and lie to their heart's extent, yet have no obligation or anything to follow through on their promises. and won't face any consequences in any way. Reminds me when that Julie Uhrman lady in the Ouya Kickstarter video lies and says Minecraft is going to be on it. Yet it never came and months after it released people were angry because they bought it just to play Minecraft. She just said that to sucker people to pledge money towards it. (Not sure why you would buy an Ouya to play Minecraft and I would assume anybody that was a Minecraft fan before the Ouya crowdfunding campaign launched already owned a device capable of playing it, but I digress...)
  2. Absolutely love what you're doing Tommy! I'm skeptical in in the most positive way (Maybe skeptical isn't the right word. It's like if you're searching for a used vehicle and come across the perfect one on Craigslist at the perfect price. You contact the seller and set up a time to see it and test drive it and you fully intend on purchasing it as long as it's as advertised and the seller didn't lie about or misrepresent it on the Craigslist ad in some way.) Another good comparison is games unveiled at E3 or are announced and then the game gets released and it's absolutely nothing like it was described or what the trailer had initially shown I'm looking at you No Man's Sky (Hopefully you understand what i'm trying to say haha) If the Amico ends up turning out exactly how you're describing it to be and you end up delivering on how you're promising it's going to be and doesn't turn out to be a huge bait and switch expectation vs reality situation like No Man's Sky was or turns out completely different from how you've been hyping it up to this point (And I have every reason to trust you at this point and very little to no reason to doubt you) then I am sold 100%!
  3. Jaguar had 3 great exclusives at the time in Rayman, Tempest 2000 and Alien Vs Predator. and arguably the best non-PC version of Doom at the time (with no music) And it wasn't crowdfunded! Yeah, that's not really that great of a library over all and actually quite pathetic overall especially when compared to the competition from the SNES and Sega Genesis during that time, yet it's a hell of a lot more then what's been announced for the VCS so far in like 2 years. I showed this new Atari VCS to my 9 year old nephew. He knows what Atari is and his parents have an Atari Flashback though my nephew with him being 9 years old really isn't a fan. Hes a huge gamer and his parents are too and he actually knows quite a bit of whats coming out, a lot of it from his parents but he finds out quite a bit just from sitting on his iPad all day. He has an iPad his grandparents bought him when they moved from Minnesota to Tennessee a few years back so he could skype with them, his parents have a Switch and my nephew has a cheap Xbox One S in his bedroom and his own 3DS. Nintendo is his favorite along with Minecraft, Terraria, Skylanders, and the likes. He LOVES watching Twitch and Lets plays on Youtube as well. (Hes just like his dad/my brother in law) First thing he said when I showed him the listings on GameStop he replied to me "Thats way too much money for an Atari" tells me how cheap flashbacks are at Walmart when he goes shopping with his mom and dad and then commented how the new Xbox and PlayStation are coming out next year his dad told him and E3. He asked me what games it will have and I said only Atari Vault has been announced so far and one other (Tempest), to which I ended up pulling up Atari Vault on the Xbox store on his Xbox One S and after he browsed at the Atari Vault page for like 20 seconds he said "My dad already has these on his Atari Flashback" and then said something like "So it's not even exclusive and I can buy this on Xbox now if I really wanted it" to which I told him yes. I told him it'll be a full PC and that he can watch Youtube and Twitch and Skype on it if he wants, to which yet again tells me he already does all that on his Xbox and iPad. I didn't even bother telling him it'll have Netflix (bwahahahahahahaha) About the only "TV" he watches is Twitch and Youtube (yep, my nephew is definitely apart of the new generation of kids) So yeah, to sum it up even my 9 year old nephew had the same reaction as us -Asking about games, to which I can't really tell him anything other then Atari Vault and Tempest (supposedly) -Can already play/do all these things on devices that he already owns -New Xbox/PlayStation coming around same time -Too expensive
  4. In a country that has over 325 million people, and around 4000 Walmarts (f*** Walmart, used to be an overnight manager there) and over 4000 GameStops and around 1800 Targets and slightly less then 1000 Best Buys, 10,000 isn't even enough for each location to get 1 console in stock. So no, 10,000 doesn't sound like a lot. (I know only Walmart and Gamestop have been announced so far and I'm aware nothing has been said about Target and Best Buy, just used those numbers to illustrate my point)
  5. Haven't been onto their website in a long time, but if you sit through the flashy presentation on the home page it shows different game cover art eventually like Toe Jam & Earl and 10 yard fight and a bunch of other games. Don't know if their site always showed these or if it was just updated very recently. Could these be some of the 20+ something games they were talking about? Or has the website always shown these and this is nothing new? Update: I just realized that thing on their website is their reveal trailer that they uploaded to Youtube back in 2018, so this is nothing new unfortunately. They sure got a nice, flashy website (I like it a lot! Very nicely done!) I hope that slick presentation that their website has, I hope that kind of quality carries over to their marketing/advertising when this thing gets closer to being released in 2020. High quality, effective marketing is critical to succeed in pretty much any business. It's going to be crucial trying to launch a video game console. https://www.intellivisionentertainment.com/
  6. Disappointing after bragging how they would be at E3 with 22 playable games that there is no info coming out other then 5 different color variations. I know it was behind closed doors, but c'mon! Don't go around talking about it if your not going to let any of the information or news get out to the people that you were bragging to. It's still early, we could still see information of some sort from this year's E3 come out. (I admit that i'm quite pessimist and a tough one to please, but the fact that the Ouya is the most "successful" non Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft console so far of this millennium and after the Coleco Chameleon and Atari Box/VCS fiascos, you can't really blame me. I'm cautiously optimistic because this one might be different, especially with Tommy behind it and no crowdfunding) Key word:might
  7. I was thinking something exactly like this, except instead of free candy it'd say something like "Atari VCS sneak peak inside" or something of that nature (Sorry, I can't photoshop or edit a picture even if my life depended on it!)
  8. Dude Casey's is the shit! That Taco pizza is to die for! One of the things miss most about living in rural Minnesota, they barely have any locations in bigger cities since they're more focused on being a rural/small town gas station chain and are based out of Iowa. While I have my fair share of pretentious, overpriced & trendy mom and pop pizza joints in Minneapolis and St Paul, theres a void left by Caseys that can't be filled by any other place. All the people living in Chicago or New York or in California will make fun of us for liking gas station pizza, but they're seriously missing out. Mila Kunis loves Casey's pizza too! Meanwhile, Nutari claims they have a working prototype, oh and they're "officially" going to E3
  9. Stopped for Papa Murphys for Friday night. The Subway next to it closed (no big loss as theres a billion Subways nearby) and its a taco place now! Robbinsdale, MN right next to North Minneapolis if you're wondering!

  11. Isn't that essentially what the Taco Bell double decker taco basically is?
