  1. I never thought all those “Sans in Smash Bros.” memes would become a reality...

  2. Why does everyone think Sonic Adventure 2 is so good? Nostalgia is one thing, but I think its no better than other recent Sonic games. Its so overrated that when people see a flaw in a modern Sonic game, they hate it. But then they forget that it was in SA2 as well.

      I find all of the Sonic games to be flawed to some degree, even the classic 2D games on the Genesis.  Stylish, but flawed.

      Personally, I don't care for ANY of thr Sonic Adventure games.  The first one on DC was a buggy mess.  I've tried and tried again to get into that game, over the course of decades.  It's one of those I used to pull out every couple of years and think "I should give this a try, it can't be as bad as I remember." And yet, there it is.  I actually did like SA2 okay, I wouldn't say it's a great game, but way better in comparison to the first.

      2D Sonic FTW!!!   Although I did just order Sonic Generations because it looked interesting and I don't always keep up with newer stuff...

  3. Back from yet another hiatus. I’ve just been caught in lot of personal stuff lately, but now I’m back and going to be participating in the 2600 HSC again!

      Nice....But most AA members want to know, are you still a fan of Atari Pac-man?

      Of course I am. :)

  4. I was going to buy Doom for my Switch today, but not anymore. Why did Bethesda put DRM in a 23 year old game? DRM does the exact opposite of what its supposed to do. It actively encourages piracy.

      Are you talking about the (currently) mandatory registration for Bethesda.net? That's not DRM, that's just a stupid business decision. 

       

      Everything you can buy on the eShop has digital rights management, it's not as if you can just copy it from your SDcard and run it on an Android tablet.

      This whole "Slayer's Club" thing is a lame excuse...don't we already log in PSN or Xbox Live for achivements already?

       

      Yes you can take the WADs from the DOS version and run it on an open port for any Android device or jail broken Switch but I guess it's easier for kids to pay $5 for a bad Unity port...

  5. WHOA! I'm offline for a few hours only to come back and see that everything looks completely different! I'm not sure how I feel about this new look, but I'll probably get used to it eventually.

      There's still work to do, and the theme will need some refinement.

      I feel the same way.

  6. Banjo finally came home!

  7. I feel like I just woke up from a huge slumber. What did I miss?

  8. Yay! Cuphead is finally coming to Switch! Now I can lose my sh*t on the go!

    1. Jin

      Jin

      lol! At least it's a good sign of things to come for previously X-Box exclusive games? The rumor mill seems to indicate that Ori and the Blind Forest is on the way to the Switch, and Super Lucky's Tale has been confirmed by the developers to coming as well.

  9. I’ve been overwhelmed with work yet again, and I’m back to posting yet again....

    1. doctorclu

      doctorclu

      felt the same. Then I realized many were overwhelmed, so I just felt whelmed. ;)

    2. GoldLeader

      I was underwhelmed and then semi-whelmed...And then I realized at my age, it's probably better to be somewhat whelmed then not whelmed at all

    3. DZ-Jay

      I've never been whelmed at any level -- and you can't prove me wrong!

  10. What do you think is best emulation console? My favorite is the Nintendo Wii/Wii U.

      Windows laptop with Xbox One controllers, optional loooooooong HDMI cable. Goes anywhere, plays anything.

  11. Heys guys I got bad joke. Why does Ganondorf hate the internet? It’s because there are too many links

  12. Just got done playing through Super Mario Galaxy 2 after almost a decade. I forgot how good is was. It just might be my favorite 3D mario game next to odyssey

    1. Grig

      My boys both think SMG2 is one of the best wii games ever

      I agree, Both the Mario Galaxy games are awesome.

  13. Does anyone else kinda wish that Nintendo kept the “Now Your Playing With Power” slogan?

      That thread is an embarrassment to atariage.

      That thread can make me hungry....

  15. Not sure how I feel about this new “Big Chungus” meme. To me it just looks like the 2nd coming of Ugandan Knuckles.

      Is this safe for work to look up?

    3. derFunkenstein

      yeah, it's safe for work. Just a stupid reference to a fat Bugs Bunny in an Elmer Fudd cartoon.

      I read about that (Thanks Flojo) with my PC (W/Adblock Plus), but on my Netbook (no adblockers) I tried and that site is unusable. It has ads, pop-ups, banners and video trying to play...Needless to say it just froze with a fat pic of Bugs Bunny...

  16. Just got Smash Bros. Ultimate for Xmas. I have to say that I’m a little disappointed. Fights are much shorter for some reason, you only get 1 life in classic mode, they force you to play every single character if you want to unlock them all, and don’t even get me started on the online mode.

      I think unlocks are time based if you don’t go through world of light. Every ten minutes of smash or classic mode.

      I don't get the whole Smash thing. I have probably all of them except the most recent one (and I might not have the Wii U version; I do have the 3DS one), and I just think it's merely okay. I don't get the fervor behind it.

  17. KISS' End Of The Road Tour has got me face-palming. Even though KISS is probably my favorite band, they really should've quit years ago. Paul Stanley's voice is absolutely painful to listen to these days!

      I was never a big KISS fan, but I get why people love them and they're such an influential band. It'd be nice for them to have Ace & Peter on the tour, though, if it is a final one but I don't see that happening.

  19. Getting pumped for the Atari 2600 HSC! This is gonna be my 1st time participating.

    1. Jin

      Jin

      It's a lot of fun! I usually burn out on it and drop out after a couple months, but who knows, maybe I'll stick with it this season. =)

  20. Just got an Atari 8-bit ultimate cartridge. It works, but I can’t seem to load .xex files. I’m using an unexpanded Atari 400.

    1. adam242

      adam242

      16K is not enough for most of them. A lot of .xex files need at least 48K, most 64K.

       

    2. Swami

      Swami

      yeh, some are even more. 130XE or some kind of 128k+ memory expansion needed.

  21. Atarimax website has been taken down? https://www.atarimax.com/cgi-sys/defaultwebpage.cgi

  23. Just got done binge-watching the original Powerpuff Girls! You know a cartoon is good when even your mother sits down and watches it with you because it's a great show!

      ^Nah. She just liked watching the show. Although that is one of her favorite episodes.

    3. GoldLeader

      A Classic indeed! I've only seen a handful of episodes but always liked it :)

    4. Jin

      Jin

      I haven't watched it in probably a decade and a half, but even as a kid I liked Powerpuff Girls. When you can make a show for girls that adults and even prepubescent boys like too then you know you're doing something right!

  24. Just picked up a Stick Stand with the ball attachment for my Atari 2600. OMG I should have picked this up a long time ago! It's now my go-to joystick for playing Atari and almost anything with a DB9 connector.

    1. GoldLeader

      Those are pretty cool! The only bummer in my book was they don't work with Atari Flashback joysticks since the cable comes out in a slightly different spot.
