  1. Well I decided to pre-order the Playdate. I hope I like it. I think it'll be a fun device to try out. Looking forward to how many games end up on the console and how well the crank works.
  2. https://www.engadget.com/playdate-preview-170047433.html This is from the article. I should note that the Playdate does last a long time in between charges. I’ve left it unplugged for nearly two weeks now, and even though I’ve played a few hours every day, it still has over half of its battery life left. I also noticed an “Upside Down” mode in the Settings menu, which turns the screen, well, upside down. When asked, Sasser said that this is an experimental mode for left-handed users who want to use the crank with their left hands. He did say, however, that this is feature is still subject to change.
  3. According to the Playdate website under the specs, it says battery life is 8 hours.

  5. On 2/16, when I would go to save a post, it took a while. Usually the post saves within a few seconds. But there were times where it took a whole minute. I'm not sure why there is a delay? Also, some of my posts were not showing up in my profile yesterday. They would appear later on though. Then today 2/17, I go into my profile and under activity, I have no posts at all. In order to see my posts, I must click on see my activity, then on the left hand side click on posts. So, my question is, what is going on?
  6. RIP Larry King.

      He was great whenever he interacted with Norm MacDonald, who also did a funny impression of him. He also interviewed Norm in character as Larry.

  7. Youtube is down.

      It was out for many people.  You were lucky.

      Yep, I had definitely noticed an unusual disruption here as well, everything appeared normal but video loading circle just kept going round and round.....fine now though.

      Are people really staring at youtube so much, they'd actually notice?  Does anyone still work for a living? :?

      He will be missed in our household.  Indeed Jeopardy will not be the same.

      I find it SNL ironic that he and Sean Connery left this world so close together.

      Are they planning on continuing Jeopardy, but with a new host or something?  Personally, I wish they'd just leave it off a few seasons after the Alex episodes have all aired.   Both out of respect, but also to give us all a chance to miss it before it comes back, ...If that's indeed what they're doing.

  9. Yes, I agree. I would love to see these mini consoles come out. Especially a jaguar mini.
  10. Happy Birthday AtariSociety! 🎂

  11. Yes there are minis for each. And yes there are hidden games. The TG16 mini has 2 hidden games.
  12. I found this out from a youtuber today. It was interesting.
  13. I too pre-ordered in July. If only the mini console had a release date right before the virus outbreak. Then it would have been fine.
  14. I emailed AT Games and asked if there would be a gold version of the Atari Flashback 10. And unfortunately they are not making one. I wonder if they're done with the 2600 flashbacks and moving on to doing a 5200 or 7800 flashback?
  15. It's odd that the Color/BW switch is missing from the FB 10. Perhaps if they do make another version of the FB 10, that switch will be on there. Also they might add the option to change screen ratio.
  16. Yeah, I agree. It should have been announced by now or on store shelves.
  17. I know about the deluxe version. I meant a gold edition like how they had the Atari FB 8 Gold & the 9 Gold. I was hoping for a 10 Gold with wireless controllers. But I guess this year there won't be a gold version of the FB 10. Unless the deluxe version is considered the gold this time.
  18. Yes, I figured they would work fine on original hardware. I just wanted to make sure ahead of time. Thanks!
