  2. I love Activision titles for my Atari 2600, in particular Pitfall and Laser Blast (two of my favorites). Nary a flicker from what I can see. I could play both of these for hours and was always impressed by the way they programmed for the Atari 2600.
  3. Nostalgia and memories of a time in my youth where things were a lot different in the gaming world than they are today. This console has been in my household for years. I think I've gone through many consoles and PC systems, only to come back to Atari 2600 time and again. The games required a certain level of imagination, and the artwork was amazing for it's time. Games today don't require too much thought to imagine their worlds, but Atari games certainly did. Pac-man was and still is well-liked to this day, plus many others like Asteroids and Space Invaders. Classics that are different from the arcades they were born from, but still are awesome translations. Sometimes I become disillusioned with today's modern games and step back, plug in my favorite Atari games from yesteryear, and feel those tingles of good times from the 80's kick in.

      Well well, thanks folks. Good welcomes. Glad to be back with my Atari family.

       

  6. I have this game in physical form, and I have to say it's VERY enjoyable. The many aspects of the game are really appealing to me, more so than Elite: Dangerous (which has now taken a back seat to this game). I was miffed at first that it was on PS4, but I'm more than ecstatic that it came to Xbox One. This game is so easy to get lost in and completely lose track of all concepts of time...
  7. Hello, folks. Been awhile since I've been hanging around the AtariAge Forums. Good to see this topic! I've been playing two games consistently: No Man's Sky NEXT and State of Decay 2. These games consume a good portion of my gaming time. The SoD2 game is pretty good. Still filled with particular glitches, but this one always captivates me. no Man's Sky NEXT was my "need" for exploration in space after Elite: Dangerous. The next game I'm planning on getting is Doom Eternal. Looks friggin' sweet! -Unbeliever
  8. I have an original Xbox One (the big black box) and have had no issues. But then again, my internet connection is very stable and the Xbox seems to like that. I also have my Xbox 360 nearby that's plugged in in case I want to play some games that I have for it that are not BC with my Xbox One (namely, Kingdoms of Amalur, which I absolutely love). I'm not saying that the Xbox One is perfect, but I have never had any issues, including freezing up, with it. The updates went smoothly the last time it was required, but it wasn't a really "old" model that had one of the first iterations of the operating system. I actually enjoy the controller over the 360 one, and the wireless feature seems to have no issues. I actually prefer a wired controller since the Xbox One is very close to where I play, so I'm not worried about how far away I get (I usually sit near the TV and system, anyway...great for the eyes). The BC functionality of the Xbox One is awesome. Some games I really just want to play on the Xbox One, other games I can't (as I mentioned), so I am keeping my 360. Besides, both machines compliment one another on my gaming shelves. As far as retro games go, I have a few (Pac Man, Ms. Pac Man, Galaga, Dig Dug, Asteroids) and they all work just fine with no issues. I am far from saying the Xbox One is perfect, but my particular system is fine and everything (knock wood) is working as it should. The most enjoyable game I've been playing so far is Elite: Dangerous.
  9. My memories of Skyrim are mostly positive ones. I've played on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One, usually a Nord or Khajitt (Khajit?) Kat...) and did make several attempts at Mage only play but ended up back with a shield and blade. Then worked on getting one of the legendary weapons such as Dawnblade. Loved that sword. So at this point, I'm looking for the game again for my Xbox 360. It was, and in my opinion still is, a great open-world game. I really never joined a faction other than the College of Winterhold when playing a Mage. Most times I free lanced all over the place, dungeon exploring and doing side quests. It's SO EASY to get distracted in this game....
  10. A few weeks back, I picked up a new 2DS XL Pikachu edition and haven't looked back since. This is my favorite portable system thus far. The Switch isn't an option at the moment, so with all the games on the 3DS system, you really can't go wrong. The library is huge for all manner of gaming types. I recommend: Animal Crossing: New Leaf New Super Mario Bros. 2 Metroid: Samus Returns Pokemon Ultra Sun Miitopia A small portion of the games I love, but this is a good start. Oh yeah, The RPG's from Mario and Luigi are awesome as well.
  11. Damn...Dead Space still scares the crap outta me!

      No kidding! I just started playing the original Dead Space for the first time last week and it's pretty terrifying. Horror games don't usually make me feel uneasy while playing them but Dead Space is something special.

      I will add though that at this point I'm about 2/3 of the way through the game and it is getting REALLY repetitive. I'll still see it through to the end, but I do like Dead Space: Extraction on the Wii more for focusing on the scares and action and doing away with the endless fetch quests.

      Need to get it for PS3. I though Dead Space: Extraction for the Wii was pretty damn good too!

  12. About a month or so ago I picked up a new 2DS XL Pikachu edition with a few games. So far, Miitopia hasn't left the cartridge slot, followed closely by Pokemon Ultra Sun. Great portable system in general. I really need to stop letting the Gamestop guys talk me into stuff...I'm such a pushover.
  13. Bump for a great seller! If I only had a Jaguar, I'd be all over this.
  14. Emulated on the Raspberry Pi: Castlevania (NES) Final Fantasy (NES) Super Mario World (SNES)
  15. Here's two that you should find amusing: I love Pacman on my 2600. I took my Atari 2600 and put it away. Now I emulate all the games on my Raspberry Pi. For shame.
  16. Playing the Raspberry Pi and my Xbox One quite a bit lately.

      Yeah, throw the Wii in the mix, and I have plenty of games to play.

      Today: Turn your Pi into an emulation system.

      Two decades from now: Run an emulator for Pi itself through your bioport.

  17. Wow, it's been awhile since I've been here! Last game played (close to right now) was Missile Command.
  18. I'd have to say Ms. Pacman keeps dragging me back for a few replays. I hit that button to start another game more often than not with my other games in the collection.
  19. I just don't know if I got "lucky" or my Gamestop is the exception to the rule of being rude and obnoxious to their customers. In light of the fact that I have never had a bad experience there, the only issue I can think of off the top of my head with them is the fact that they always want me to buy used, not new. I make it a point to go in there once a month and guy a shiny, new game or a few used games at a reduced price. Just went in and bought a new copy of the Deluxe version of Mass Effect: Andromeda. They treated me well, as always, and offered me all the perks that they have to (upcoming games to pre order, do you want to buy the new Microsoft Xbox One S, etc.). It's more than just being a customer. I can shoot the shit with them for awhile and discuss games, talk about my favorites, old classics, etc. They always have time to let me bend their collective ears unless they're swamped. I enjoy the one on one customer experience that they seem to offer over and above the sales pitch plans most Gamestop stores have in place. Thinking back, I really can't think of any super bad experiences that made me never want to walk in there again.
  20. No, you are not. I personally have never had a bad experience at my local Gamestop. It's the only one that's close to me..the others are at least a 45 minute drive to an hour and a half. I hope my Gamestop isn't one they are targeting, but we'll see. Our local Pizza Hut suffered the shut down fate, and now the nearest one is the 45 minute drive. However, there were at least 4 other pizza joints nearby that offered better deals. Shame, really.
  21. I'm not sure if anyone else would classify this as "strange"..but I certainly did the first time I played it on the 360: Bioshock Perhaps it's the content and the way things are presented, but the Splicers certainly qualify this game as "strange", in my opinion. And the way some scenes play out? Priceless. Scared the Bejesus out of me, too.
  22. Super Mario Bros. for the NES looks GREAT on a 32" flat screen!

      On any CRT, it looks great. On an LCD, not so much.

      I always thought it looks great either way...just different.

  23. New sessions of: Demon Attack (Atari 2600) Super Mario Bros. (NES) Chrono Trigger (SNES)-continuing the saga......
  24. Played some Demon Attack, Cosmic Ark, and Ms. Pacman this morning. All low scores, but tons of fun.
  25. New list, new week: Kid Icarus (NES)-Still love this game, but I don't think I've ever beaten it. Fallout 4 (Xbox One) Ms. Pac Man (SNES)-This is a great version, with a few options as well for more variety.
