  1. What a start to the new year, playing on an Atari Jaguar!

    1. xucaen


      Awesome. Happy new year!

    2. doctorclu


      Beat Cybermorph. That is a fun journey.

  2. Did I miss anything? A cheap Jaguar? The release of the IntelliXpander?? World peace???

    1. CPUWIZ


      Someone puked in the back row.

  3. Just wanted to let people know that the Odyssey 2 HSC is playing Revival Games' Air Assault this month.

  4. Just to let people know, we're playing Pick Axe Pete in the Odyssey 2 HSC right now until Thursday. Submit scores while you can!

    1. Flojomojo


      Oooh, I like that one.

    2. wongojack


      Yeah, great game

  5. I keep seeing a Jaguar in my local game store, should I pick it up for $200?

      Yeah, it has no games, but I could get Syndicate without a label for $20 with it.

      It doesn't even have AV cables.

      Good grief man, if you have to ask, the answer is NO.


      $200 could be spent on so many other more fun things. A New 3DS or a couple of 2017 HD Atari and/or Sega Flashback consoles would be infinitely more entertaining and worthwhile.


      Buying vitamins or toilet paper would be more useful and entertaining, too.


      Play Syndicate on your computer.

  6. My Dreamcast died today, time to get it repaired.

      I was playing it and it froze, now it won't read GDs.

  7. Someday I'll have $1000 to buy a Unisonic Champion. Someday...

  8. I passed up an untested Apple IIe Platinum for $50, and eBay prices are telling me wrong.

    1. save2600


      I'd have snagged that or talked him down if it was a CL, garage sale or flea market deal.

    2. HawkMines


      It was at a flea market.

  9. How do I fix a Commodore 64 that comes up as a black screen?

      Open up a troubleshooting thread and work through the problem.

      Master Phruby

      Plug it into the TV. Set channel to 3 and move the switch box from TV to Game.

    4. Grig


      Sell broken 64. Buy working 64. Until then go home for sad times.

  10. There's a Dreamcast that needs some games poped in it, can't decide what to get. Any suggestions?

      You know what I thought was the Greatest thing ever? The Stunt Mode for San Francisco Rush 2049...Not even the regular Game, just the Stunt Mode! Man I played the hell out of that thing! More Fun than the actual game by far!!

    3. GoldLeader


      Jaybird I'm pretty sure he meant to say POOPED ...

    4. HawkMines


      Sounds like soo many good games.

  11. Now that I'm soon to get a TurboGrafx-16, anybody have any recommended games for it?

    2. HawkMines


      Wow, there's alot of good games I've never heard of for the system! I'm going to check all of them out soon.

    3. Ransom


      My favorites are Galaga '90, Bonk's Adventure, Military Madness, Power Golf, Klax, and Tricky Kick.

    4. GoldLeader


      I also spent a fortune on RPGs after buying a Turbografx, especially for the Turbo CD...

  12. Jaguar=Not worth it without SD cart. Next Question: How worth it is the Master System?

      I think the Jaguar is worth owning, probably not for the money people are asking on eBay

    3. HawkMines


      I have a Genesis, no Everdrive though. I'd get a Jaguar, but the price for one on eBay is too high for the reward of the games I'd play. Since stores sell Jags at about eBay prices, no luck there. The SMS has more games at a cheaper price, just don't know which games are good buys.

      In my very subjective personal opinion the SMS is a great system if you're willing to import games from Europe (particularly if you have a 50/60 hertz swappable TV) but rather mediocre if you're limited to the US game library.

  13. How worth it is the Jaguar?

      I'm thinking I'll grab the Sega Master System first if the Jaguar's this bad.

      How much disposable income do you have? If you're not concerned about the cost then the Jaguar is a really neat system with a lot of cool games to offer, just be prepared to spend a whole lot of money on the system, games, and accessories.

    4. Swami


      IOW, it's kind of a status symbol...way too much money for way too few games, but your worth it :D

  14. Some day my Commodore 64 case will be filled. Some day...

    1. Bryan


      With Jellybeans!!

    2. jaybird3rd


      Don't just fill it, upgrade it! Put an Atari inside!

    3. atarian63


      Yes go Atari!


  15. Back in the game after an over 1 year hiatus! Hope to be more active now then I was before dissapearing.

      "Coleco" has stepped up from being Governor Tarkin to Darth Vader, Dark Lord of the Sith. "Atari" has a new mystery box. The average AtariAger would rather play with their old stuff than anything made after 1985, except for home-brews.

    4. HawkMines


      Sounds like I missed an eventful year! Coleco Holdings has gotten that bad?

  16. Y'know, I'm starting to think that I will never get an Intellivision. I just missed the 20th Intellivision that I was watching.

      Join us at the Intellivision forum. Someone will hook you up cheap! :)

      Get a Flashback?

    4. HawkMines


      My high bid for just a console was $50, and somebody outbid me!
