  1. sweet the atari stuff I picked up the other day had a copy of cannon man in it (the end label had fallen off, but it was in the box of stuff) so I got pac man atari corp and cannon man out of the score.

  2. scored some okay atari stuff today, (only new thing was an atari corp label pacman, which is cool) but as I was cleaning the 2600 I was thinking about how old the dust and dirt in there is.  Cleaning out stuff that is decades old.

  3. just brushed my teeth, feels good man

      @masschamberSo by that you mean you don't regularly brush your teeth?

    2. masschamber

      masschamber

      No, just I enjoy brushing my teeth

      Do you use toothpaste enhanced with steroids, just like Dieter Baumann once claimed he did?

  4. I don't get why they're bothering to dub Yakuza like a dragon, I don't think a dub is enough to bring in people that aren't interested and I don't think fans of Yakuza are the type of people that want  a dub.  But as long as they don't drop the original Japanese dub it  isn't a big deal.

      As long as they get Mark Hamil to reprise his role as Majima, then I'm cool with a dub.

    2. masschamber

      masschamber

      yes that was quite a... thing

  5. so an old canuck decided he wanted to clear out his basement with a garage sale today, got all the best spectravision games (except mangia, but oh well I can take bumper bash, gas hog, and master builder) and obelix along with a few other games that weren't as interesting.  Nice have a good find again, hadn't had one in months.

    1. CPUWIZ

      Nice, are they complete?  Either way, good score.

      cart only but it was 20 bucks for the whole lot, so nice to get them.

  6. anyone want a mcwill moded, recapped, power components replaced lynx 1 with 4 games and a power supply for 265 dollars shipped to the US?

    1. joeatari1

      joeatari1

      Unfortunately I just spent $300 at Songbird so I am out.  Would love this though as I have a Lynx II that was recapped and McWilled.:_(

      What's a Mcwill? Is that something Ronald McDonald's kids are gonna get when he kicks the bucket?

  7. My daughter has decided that sorthing then counting my lynx games is a fun activity,

    counting to 82 is pretty good for her age as well,

    then she usually adds a little bit then asks if she can play pac man girl or pac man boy

  8. the rarer sears picture labels sure are getting really expensive.

  9. found a copy of super asteroids/missile command for the lynx, however, it is new.  Any sealed that wants a sealed one have a cib one to make a exchange of some sort?

  10. anyone else ever tempted to click on spam just for the engrish contained within?

      Apparently just earlier today I had a big payout from Fortune Casino, they just wanted to confirm my "infos" 😆

  11. I think 2600 superman is still be best representation of superman in a video game, he can fly infinitely, is invincible, is incredibly strong,

      Dang straight!

      I remember playing it at a cousin's house that had it, thought it was fun.  That's all kids need.

       

    3. retrorussell

      Certainly better than the N64 version..

  12. Bumper Bash, midnight magic or video pinball?

    1. MrMaddog

      MrMaddog

      I played a lot of Midnight Magic and even hacked an old joystick for that flipper button feel.

       

      But I now enjoy Bumper Bash since I discovered it...

    2. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      ^ Me Too!  I rewired my X-Arcade stick to make the flipper buttons work on Midnight Magic!  I had to use the "paddle hack" ROM to make them work independently.

    3. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      I've decided I will play Bumper Bash Tonight!   :)

  13. Managed to find a copy of lemmings for the lynx and it's dead

    1. Joe C.

      Joe C.

      Lemmings, great word, even better game!

  14. I think if you are on the fence about the odyssey 2, you should buy one and as many games as possible while  they are still cheap, never know when they might go stupid like the channel f has recently

    1. littleman jack

      littleman jack

      And buy the game KTAA (Kill the Attacking Aliens). It's a fantastic home-brew.

    2. thanatos

      thanatos

      It does seem like some systems will never get love.  Maybe it just needs a popular youtube talking head to praise it.

    3. masschamber

      masschamber

      @thanatos

      that or trashing it in just such a way that it makes people interested

  15. wish atari had stuck with the flat lynx cards, they're just not that hard to remove and they look and stack so much more nicely

  16. so were the telegames lynx releases unfinished, because I can't see anyway that super off road's like 3 frames per second is due to hardware limitations of the lynx

    1. masschamber

      masschamber

      it is disappointing, same with double dragon, if the input wasn't all inconsistent and the combos incomplete it would have been an acceptable port and a nice game on the lynx, instead it is a mess, when paused the music pauses with the last note played still playing, and raiden, too, it is almost good, but some oddness and the lack of music hurt it,

    2. Rick Dangerous

      Rick Dangerous

      Those two I can handle and think are okay, but I get where you are coming from.

    3. masschamber

      masschamber

      obviously they're not super off road bad, but all three games should be fantastic on the  lynx and are mediocre to bad

  17. found an atari video music, powers up but doesn't display anything, plan to recap it, but this is when I miss Radio shack the most, I what would have been like 3 dollars in components and I could get them today. 

    1. thanatos

      thanatos

      Ben Heck fixed one in a video.   Just pray it's not the main video chip that's dead.

       

       

    2. masschamber

      masschamber

      I know a dead proprietary chip is bad news, and unfortunately I don't think atari video music is popular enough that a reproduction will ever be made.  Though even like a 50 dollar repro chip would be worth it to bring these things back.

    3. masschamber

      masschamber

      the video actually seems to make things look good, I get just a stable blank screen so I hope that it is the opamps or the caps.

      actually I opened it up, has some clearly blown caps, so hopefully we are looking at an easy fix

  18. anyone want rockman x 3 for 20 dollars shipped to the US?

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Is that for Super Famicom? 

    2. masschamber

      masschamber

      Yes but getting super Famicom games working on an snes is really easy 

    3. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      No worries there!  I snipped one of my SNESes and my FC 16Go years ago;) And that was b4 I bought a Super NT! (I only wanted to make sure it wasn't Sega Saturn or even Jap PS1.)  I don't need it myself, but I have a friend who just  got into SFC.  I just sold him a ton of games actually.  Anyway I asked him today and he said he was probably not interested but his roommate might be.  I'll keep ya posted.  I don't expect anything, but if he wants it I'll PM ya.

  19. so I plugged by collectorvision phoenix into a hdmi to av adapter, plugged that into a rca to phono adapter, then plugged that into a turbo express, allowing me to enjoy my colecovision games in the most convoluted way possible

  20. so I sold a non-working for parts lynx on ebay, showing that the underside of the case wasn't closing properly in the picture, I take a low ball for it (always a mistake) and the guy that bought it wants to return in because the case wasn't closed all the way (you know like in the picture) anyway I accept the return because ebay, and I think I didn't try to fix this thing, maybe it is something easy.  Open it up and the ribbon cable to the screen is disconnected and the battery cover was just misaligned, well cable back in, battery cover slipped and place and now the lynx is 100%,  hah, the guy bought a parts lynx and instead of trying to fix it fraudulently returned it and then I fixed it fine 5 minutes

      It's amazing these a--wipes waste their own time buying/returning items. Besides of course wasting the seller's time. I am glad you got it working.

    2. save2600

      save2600

      Too many asswipes to count anymore. Reminds me of the time I sold a fully working, mint condition CIB Wico trackball for the TI, when said asshat claimed it didn't operate properly. Of course it was chalked up to the Caps Lock thing on his end, and even though I made him aware (and he ignored) during the worthless return process - of which he immediately filed - didn't matter. Jacktard forced a return. And of course, after I paid the return shipping and received it back, worked just fine. Sure hope that idiot is proud of his ignorance!

      First they have to recognize their ignorance.

       

      Pretty big hurdle to some!

  21. I think the best scene in the 1993 The Mask is when Jim Carrey sings Cuban Pete, apparently in the Son of the Mask, Jamie Kennedy sings a section of the song, poorly, as Elvis, Elvis never sang Cuban Pete, I can just imagine writing the scene, hey what was that song Jim Carrey sang , uhh Cuban Pete, right?  Let's have him sing a bit of it in this one!  Who sang that anyway, uh it's from the 50s it must have been Elvis!

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Elvis?  I hear he invented rock and roll.

      Let's not go down that rabbit hole again...

      GoldLeader

      Ya got me!    I find it heartening (Is that a word?) that there were no takers...But I do crack myself up hahhaaaa...

  22. so my daughter's friends came over today for the first time in months, and I recently hit an amazing lynx score (the stuff in the market place is actually less than half the score save the systems, the rest I'm keeping)

    and the older boy wanted to play games, I asked if he wanted to try out some multiplayer, he wanted to so while holding the lynx 2 I asked do you want the big one or the small one, he says the small one, 

    so I hand him the lynx 2, and he says wait what? then I take out the lynx 1 and his jaw drops.

    Then we played some of the lynx multiplayer games, battle wheels sure is  fun, as is xenophobe (probably the best xenophobe) and we had some laughs at pit fighter 

    1. Sauron

      Sauron

      If you have Warbirds that one is tons of fun to play multiplayer as well.

  23. don't know which I prefer, the slick uniformity of the sears telegames black boxes, or the fun candy colored atari boxes.

    1. joeatari1

      joeatari1

      Either way, you win!

    2. Magmavision2000

      Magmavision2000

      I've always had this "hatred" for the sears variants, I'm not a fan of the name changes or how the console looks, so I'd have to go with the colored Atari boxes.

    3. Zoyous

      Did Sears actually manufacture the Telegames products, or were they manufactured by Atari and then had Sears branding applied to them?

  24. awesome found gunslingers picture label, I now have all the sears picture labels, well except superman, which, not gonna happen, 

  25. Handed over to the airline a month ago, going to say that means it's lost.

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Probably true,  Unless:   It's from China by boat.  Or Venezuela who had options taking 6 months Before the political turmoil...Also COVID slowed a lot of things down...If it was in the U.S., though,  it shouldn't take that long.

    2. Rogerpoco

      Rogerpoco

      Yes, truly, I think the whole "system" is just screwed up right now-I sent a couple patches to a buddy in Canada about a month ago, they only arrived today, I was SURE they were lost, and have a couple going to a Buddy in Australia, I feel better now that they will arrive safely.

      On the other hand, the patches I had made(Haha, I'm not just randomly jamming in on someone's wall here!), are supposed to arrive today, FROM China, were shipped three or four days ago, I went "holy crap"(not corona-shipping time...), but they were in Alaska this morning, Memphis this afternoon(Fed Ex seems to...rule.), so I suspect I'll get a package from China in about five days, is crazy.

      I'd hold out.

      Lol, I get your worry-you are a lightning fast shipper, no doubt!!!
