  1. Were you taking undercover video lol? I sure hope the few retro arcades in Oregon make it through this nightmare....Quartercade and Ground Kontrol.

      Oh man!   I would have bid $160,000 if I knew they made a part 3!

  2. Looks like cheating Billy Mitchell is up to more B.S. https://www.engadget.com/billy-mitchell-twin-galaxies-court-hearing-005935591.html

  3. Given, I am a fairly new 2600 fan, but Adventure is a pretty awesome game. What are you talking about when you say that Adventure only has 12 screens? I don't know the exact total, but it sure isn't 12. If I am wrong, please explain why.
  4. Even though I do not even remotely agree with this list... It doe's provide a good read. https://www.yahoo.com/news/10-best-super-mario-games-221100861.html

  5. What a great topic. The best game I ever played would be SMB3 (Super Mario Bros. 3). It gave me and continues to give me countless hours of fun when either being stationed in one shit hole after another or finally being back home. The game never gets old and I still play it to this day. I actually try to beat some of the world records... but my reaction time will never compare to the elite gamer's. The worst game is a toughie. I have played tons of crappy games in my life and if I had to say the worst it would be Karate on the Atari 2600. What a horrific "game". It is basically non-playable as the controller to input does not work at all. Runner ups for best game... Resident Evil 4 PS4, Defender arcade, 720 arcade, and Star Wars arcade.
  6. Heavy sixer all day long, and a very nice one at that.

    Big fan of the movie? Read the book... it has almost NOTHING to do with the movie at all and if you grew up in the 80's it will hook you almost immediately. The book is my personal favorite of all time.
  8. Kind of interesting story on early consoles. Some of the story is not true/not verifiable, but still an interesting read  https://www.yahoo.com/news/nintendo-atari-black-engineer-changed-090805949.html

      I understand Black Awareness month and all, but I feel that Marty Lipper's comment about Ed Smith who may have been "number 2" is adequate in the context:

       

      "The man was an engineer, and he knew his business. When we interviewed him, he was a decent guy, and that’s all I cared about."

      A few significant errors there, IMHO. This guy was not responsible for "literally creating an industry bigger than the movie industry". If you had to give that responsibility to anyone, it would be Ralph Baer. And the Channel F was not "the first video game console with interchangeable game cartridges".  That honour also goes to the Magnavox Odyssey - designed by Ralph. The article specifically states the Odyssey did not use interchangeable cartridges, but I have a dozen or so of them sitting right here, so there's that.  Yes, they were just circuits that rewired the console's electronics - but they were plug-in-game-cartridges nonetheless.
       

  9. Kind of amusing video on the VCS release date being pushed back. https://www.liveleak.com/view?t=9IOOC_1574964528

  10. So odd to read keatah's comments. It is almost like he/she is trying to torpedo your sales with all the emulation talk...why?
