  1. If you do that, trust me, people will complain about how they aren't "professional" enough looking. That they need to "up their game" if they want to be taken seriously. I've seen it before, even with the CollectorVision Phoenix, which was a homebrew effort, people complained the commercials weren't "professional" enough.
  2. Most people think video game journalism is barely journalism at all. The last Ars Technica article on the Amico was littered with errors and obviously poorly researched and fact -checked. So, yes, it is better to give it to media that reaches out to their target audience rather than places like IGN and Ars Technica, that experience shows, don't know what they're talking about. Also, they have different ideas about what people will want than the target audience media.
  3. I'd like to request beefed up versions of the motion control games that use the higher precision smart phone tech, such as the magnetometer and possibly more expensive, advanced gyroscope & accelerometer. Not necessarily at launch, but in the near future. Since the phone motion controls work, seems like they should be used to the best advantage. You could have games that are better than Wii or Switch. I do understand why the Wii dropped the sensor/IR bar as people complained about interference from environmental IR sources.
  4. Them's fightin' words on a forum named Atari Age, LOL!
  5. Yeah, Intellivision was kind of the opposite of the poor man's Atari. It was more expensive, had better graphics, but a lot less games, so, a lot of people who had Atari's didn't get an Intellivision unless they were well-to-do or it was a first console.
  6. Update on Amico physical box protectors. PS Vita game box protectors. Extra space is within 1mm on each side. $11 for 10 or $19 for 20 from retroprotection on eBay or maybe a bit less from retroprotection.com directly.
  7. It’s about a video TonyTGD released and NSG watches it and claims Intellivision is acting shady, so, basically promoting TonyTGD.
  8. I don't post about him weekly or make weekly speculation as negative fact month after month. Look at the definitions. Weak argument. I'm not going to argue this anymore in the "fun" thread. Fine, turn the fun thread into a troll thread like the others with all kinds of negative videos. I'm sure all the members will appreciate that.
  9. This is kinda like the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy trilogy. The head of the girl in the middle reminded me of a couple of Saggy's avatars somehow.
  10. Is Nightmare before Christmas a halloween movie. I would have guessed otherwise from the title, LOL. I see have to see this. Thanks guys for remining me of its existence.
  11. Neotokeo releases limited edition carts and does not release roms. The reason he gave was due to bootlegs being sold without permission. It also makes them more attractive to some collectors.
  12. How much does it pay? If $0.00 are you hoping/planning to make money off of it?
  13. Winter Is Coming....

    Low of 52degF tonight!

      It was very nice out today, and lately...But, although it never added up, we've had snow 3 times this year already.

  14. Here's just some: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/288558-tommy-tallarico-fun-amico-conversations/?do=findComment&comment=4929166 https://atariage.com/forums/topic/288558-tommy-tallarico-fun-amico-conversations/?do=findComment&comment=4930103
  15. Blaze does seem to be the UK equivalent, roughly, of Atgames. AtGames's actual products have been good and bad. I would say the same for Blaze. The Evercade has been a real homerun from them. I wonder how much it has to do with it being a Kickstarter. Some of their previous Atari portables had modest success.I haven't looked into Blaze's previous products that much since they are UK based. I can't find any Wikipedia article on Blaze Entertainment that fits the video game focus except for Blaze Europe which is being liquidated.

    There were also issues with Bad Santa and, I think, Cavern Fighter on the ColecoVision. Also, with all the controller option available to the Phoenix, I think those should be looked into more. Like using the four SNES buttons as directionals on Vanguard wouls have been nice, but it usually done before anyone asks anyone's opinion and they've decided not to add features to the ROMs of released games.
  17. Looking at this picture, I can't stop thinking about how she auctioned off the right to remove her breast wrap to the crew. Carrie Fisher used gaffer's tape to hold down her breasts because George Lucas 'didn't want her looking too aggressively feminine'. Carrie Fisher joked about it saying: 'No breasts bounce in space, no jiggling in the Empire'. Lucky, lucky crew members.
  18. They may have seamail options for half the cost, but I wouldn't recommend it. Lately, I've been seeing packages people get from over overseas that look like an elephant sat on them. I wouldn't risk that for a $170 package to save $20.
  19. Pretty much the only people griping about trolls being banned on comment sections and message boards are other trolls.
  20. Simple as a grand slam at the World Series, of course.
  21. I don't know how many they make in a "lot", but I imagine a stack of the plastic holder got put in the machine upside down for a lot of 20 or something. I think that's what happened with the upside down airplane stamps and 97% of the people were like, that's weird and used them as postage and soon got tossed.
