  1. FYI on the poll results from Victor Lucas (Electric Playground). Pretty impressive because Victor's core audience has to be pretty hard core gamers. In fact some of the comments were that they hadn't heard of *any* of these systems. Obviously of those that had - Amico was their #1 choice (and I guess the VCS write-in campaign didn't fair too well )
  2. It is pretty obvious the entire panel are all heading down slightly different roads but all in the same direction. Zai is playing into the "exploding board game" market but with a tech twist, Mattel's is seeking to stay relevant with it's "generation glass" (young screen users) "core kid" with games like Pictionary Air (light pen drawing Pictionary). Of course Intellivision is merging technology with family values and just good 'ol value values. Don't think I didn't notice the fist bump with the Mattel guy when Val said you should all work together [Blarneo can we get an appropriate bromance graphic? ]. Really impressive to see an established company like Mattel, a startup like IE and an indie game dev like Virsix/Alta all tracking the same trends.
  3. CES Panel with Tommy & the Chief Design Officer of Mattel & the Zai Ortiz, President of Virsix Games
  4. Your right most RFID chips store tiny amounts of data up to maybe 64k. Because they are usually used for things like door prox cards and inventory tracking - you just don’t need much storage and keeping it cheap makes more sense.
  5. Just got to say I am loving the symbolism of the Amico controller travel bag. It it literally inviting you to share both the games & fun with other people - nice touch.
  6. I have been wanting to ask Tommy if there will be any Amico titles straight up targeting the tradition young girl market? Something along the lines like the mobile game Love Nikki-Dress Up Queen (yeah, that is really the name) or just cutesy characters like Trolls, or My Little Pony or American Girl (not necessary those IPs - just along those lines)?
  7. In fairness their hardware and even some software seems to finally be moving forward. I am actually really happy for their backers on this. Of course, as a developer I am befuddled how you could just now be showing things like menu software for an x86 Linux build after the hardware has been nailed down for a year - but at least they have. Now all they need is someone to proofread the names on their game menu and to travel back in time and not anger 97% of their fan base.
  8. All good points - I think both the VCS and Gameboard One should also be on there. Both gaming devices with a store (we hope).
  9. Yep, snacks & drinks. Last one told my wife this probably wouldn't last more than an hour or two - should be to bed soon... midnight thirty later...
  10. EDIT: Sorry for the double post - LePionnier beat me to it FYI: Live Interview with Tommy tonight at 8 PM CST on the TXR podcast/YouTube channel
  11. FYI Victor Lucas from some show called Electric Playground (Tommy have you ever heard of this guy?) 😉😂 is doing a poll on non-big 3 consoles. Spoiler alert on who has taken the early lead:
  12. Totally unscientific but I mentioned before I got flagged down in a restaurant for my Intellivision hoodie and then my chiropractor mentioned it as soon as I walked in, that he had a Collecovision as a kid but added he doesn’t play games anymore after they got so complex. I have only worn that hoodie in public like 3 or 4 times. I am glad you are including two controllers because I can see Dad walking in and Mom saying she got Junior a new game console - dad looks over at the TV and says “is that Moon Patrol?, it sure looks like Moon Patrol - move over Junior daddy wants to play”.
