  1. This thing is going to be a day one purchase easy. Ever since I before I got my Jags last summer, I've been patiently waiting for this cart to release.
  2. I watched the documentary Hard to Master: The Fate of Atari. It seemed that the one person who had the best idea of what they should be doing was Nolan Bushnell himself. Ray Kassar was more interested in pushing as many 2600 consoles as he could. Bushnell saw that they needed to begin working on what he called the VCS 2. Had he not sold the company to Warner, the VCS 2 likely would've released and the market may not have become too much more saturated than it already was.
  3. Yeah on paper atleast. It just too bad that due to Nintendo's restrictive licensing policies, we couldn't see either the 7800 or the SMS truly shine. If Ace of Aces or Phantasy Star were any indication, Nintendo could've had some serious competition.
  4. I never had the 7800 either. I really don't even remember it back in the day. But I agree, the marketing department dropped the ball with it. I don't think they should've shelved it. If they had the time to release more games and build up a more solid library, they probably would've made more of an impact when competing with Nintendo and Sega. Just the other day, I added the Master System to my collection with a nice selection of carts and cards to play. If not for Nintendo's marketing and the licensing restrictions, both Atari and Sega easily would've closed the gap. The color palettes alone with the SMS and 7800 make the NES look like a toy.
  5. Exactly. I collect my games to play, not just for looks. If I wanted to just look at the games, I may as well just do stamp collecting instead lol.
  6. Yes actually, I'm not a huge fan of digital downloads for video games. I prefer to have the cart or disc. I see the usefulness of digital only from Sony's perspective with no overhead on disc production. But having grown up with having my games on cart or disc is my preference. And if Polybius ever released on Jag, SNES, Genny, etc., I would be happy to buy the game again to have a physical copy.
  7. After buying it on the PS4, I would LOVE to see Polybius made for the Jag. With Polybius and Tempest 2000 both being made by Llamasoft, I would love to have both boxed sitting on my shelf for the Jaguar. When I purchased it for the PS4, I immediately felt this game deserved to be on the Jaguar.
  8. It's turning into a weakness for me too, I've actually begun to consider selling off some of my NES collection to finance more Jag carts.....
  9. Oh, why must you torture my wallet! I just bought 2 homebrew Jag carts already, and now this!! When will it end!
  10. True, but space ship shooters, and the run n guns are by far my favorite. Contra and Gradius are two of my all time favs. Xenon 2 ranks as high as Gradius in my book.
  11. Thus far I only have Xenon 2, and Impossamole. So far, X2 is my favorite. But then again, I have a love for run and gun shooters. Even though I generally suck at them lol. But I'm drooling over Star Wars.
  12. I remember when the 2600 would end up at my house, the system just seemed weird from what I was used to with the NES. But I always took advantage of playing ET, PacMan, and the others. The one game that seemed weirdest was Freeway. I never stuck with it much. I've noticed that since I've gotten older, the retro consoles just seem to hold my interest more than modern games. Too many Call of Duty crap games nowadays. Games like Juno First and Star Versus that centers more on core gameplay are what I prefer anymore.
  13. Yeah, I grew up on the NES. I have virtually no recollection of the 7800, and a vague recollection of the SMS. There was a light sixer 2600 that either belonged to my grandparents or an uncle (I can't remember which) that periodically made its rounds around the family. That was pretty much my only experience with Atari, atleast until recently.
