    Pretty easy going guy. When I'm not playing video games, I enjoy fishing, reading, watching movies and general merriment. Like a lot of people my first system was an Atari 2600, then later down the line my family got an Atari 7800. Grew up playing video games my whole life. Got into the 5200 about 12 years ago and have come to enjoy and adore it.
  • Currently Playing
    Desert Falcon on the 7800, Ms Pac-Man on the 5200 and Spider-Man on the PS4.
  • Playing Next
    Rampage on the 7800 has been calling my name recently.
  1. Great job on the paddle controller. It looks quite ingenious.
  2. This is one heck of a collection. I'm not sure I've seen the clear case before. This is a prototype she'll, yes? Very cool.
  3. I second this. Happy for the Coleco crowd, but envious of the Phoenix. I'd love to to see an equivalent happen for the 5200, as unlikely as that may be.
  4. This sounds great. I need to move the Atarimax cart higher up my priority list. I'd love to see how this plays on the 5200.
  5. Dual Masterplay Interfaces? Beautiful sight.

    Something I was wondering regarding properly balanced Pokey audio. Like others, games using a Pokey chip are quite a bit quieter on my composite modded 7800. At the time my mod was done I was under the impression this is just how it had to be. Not terrible to just adjust the volume, but having everything operating as intended would be great.

    I say take your time, I'm a patient man. We'll all be ready to play when you decide it's all good to go.

    That's pretty interesting. I definitely see the pros and cons of each. I'm very content with my composite modded 7800, though it makes me think I should do an s-video mod if I ever get another 7800.

    Exciting indeed. Unfortunately/fortunately I'm a self proclaimed luddite and do not own a PC. I do look forward to getting a copy to play though. I like the art style and am a fan of the music.
  10. Ya know, a year or two ago I gave some serious thought to selling off my 5200 and picking up a 400 or 800 series computer. Ultimately (and thankfully) I couldn't go through with it and kept the 5200. I have respect for the Atari 8 bit computers, but for me, they're just lacking that magic.
  11. Looks like a pretty good lineup of games. Will this be available via the AtariAge shop?
  12. Excellent! Looking forward to playing games I missed out on the first time around.
  13. This is good news. I'd love the s-video mod, buy for now I just have a composite mod on my 7800. I pre-ordered my retrotink in October (third wave I think?) and am excited to get it. My 7800 is one of the systems I'm.most excited to try out.
