  1. At the time of writing I was only thinking about the boot up sequence, but it would be cool to see both
  2. Both are beautiful, but first prize goes to the left pin. To echo what many have already said, the left pin's dark woodgrain is closer to the original Intellivision console. Here's an idea: How about swapping the backgrounds with the running men? Perhaps Atari Age has a photoshop hero who could do that?
  3. Thanks for the answers, and hey no apologies are necessary! I learned what I wanted to know, it shows that you're willing to take the time to answer your customers, and now Atari Age readers have insight on the massive ongoing activity at Intellivision. Well done! As for Corona, that's out of everyone's control. Quite frankly, I'm glad that Intellivision Entertainment is powerful enough to withstand this pandemic tidal wave. I've waited 35 years for a rebooted Intellivision console, so what's a few more months? Thanks again and have a Happy Thanksgiving! ps - Did you mention in previous posts that you like root beer? Probably so, since I've yet to find an American who doesn't. Have you tried Original New York Seltzer? Their root beer is fantastic! https://www.newyorkseltzer.com/
  4. Hiya Tommy, I hope all is well in Amico land. Only 146 more days until tax day 2021 (err, I mean the re-scheduled launch date for Amico). https://www.livecountdown.com/intellivision-amico-countdown/ Until then, I have a few questions for you which I hope have not been asked until now... (1) Will there be add-on modules? (2) What are the odds that Corona will cause yet another delay? (3) When can we expect the next big Amico video? (4) Will Night Stalker be available on April 3rd? If so then NS will be the first game I'll download into my Founder's Edition. Thanks in advance, S&S
  5. Hi Tommy, If nobody has said so before, then I'll do it now: Thank you for bringing the Intellivision back to life. As someone who grew up during the "Atari Age," seeing the classic Intellivision games renewed is beyond my wildest dreams. I'm looking forward to finally getting my founder's edition in April. Yeah, the launch date been extended out several months but figuratively I've been waiting **several years** for the Amico. Besides, now that I'm no longer the kid sitting in front of the TV with an Atari/Intellivision/Colecovision controller, I have a stack of work until April that will keep me preoccupied 😅 Here's a little feedback for your marketing team: Because the Amico is working hard to portraying itself as a "couch co-op" console, some people on social media are unaware of the fact that its games also have a one player mode. This issue could cause gamers who are single people, introverts, and the like to buy from Amico's competition. I'm a fan of your console, and I want that demographic to know the joys of Amico. Don't get me wrong, companionship can be great but some gamers enjoy "alone time." I know that you're a busy man, so thank you for taking the time to read my feedback. April is gonna be great!
  6. Nice! I like the look of those scoreboards, as if they're from a real baseball stadium. Speaking of baseball, your latest update reminded me of this meme...
  7. Hi Tommy, How about "Amicoizing" some of Rock-Ola's classic arcade games? Fantasy (controlled with a single controller and no buttons which is ideal for "even-less-than casual" gamers.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVnCNVnz690 Jump Bug https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yB4vuzMi578 Nibbler (Rock-Ola's most successful game) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YTFOwqZcEP4 Fun fact: There's a documentary about Nibbler called "Man Vs. Snake" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZjKMSX4oSjA BTW, I know that I broke my "no more lists" promise to you so....I'm grounded from playing my Amico until October. Geez, that's really harsh! 😝 Seriously, thank you for connecting with the game community here on the interwebs 👍
  8. Greetings Tommy, what do you think about Robby? Robby Roto, that is! Fun fact: Robby Roto was added to the public domain. https://www.arcade-museum.com/game_detail.php?game_id=9368 Therefore, wouldn't that make it easier for porting Roto to Amico? (see what I did there?) Seriously, Robby Roto is a fun arcade game and would be even better with multiplayer options.
  9. Thank you for your reply! Good luck with those five respective owners. Once they see Amico's tremendous value, they'll be tripping over themselves to get on board. Here are a few more obscure but fun arcade games that might be a great fit for the Amico...I know you're a busy man so this will be my last list 😉 Blueprint by Midway (Ported to Atari 2600/5200) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GRBE3Wj_lg Bubbles by Williams https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twc_PKg80-Q Domino Man by Midway https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aV3eS3s5ENI Monster Bash by Sega https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J51Y33eJ48M Pengo by Sega (ported to Atari 5200) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6q3bNHvj92c Radical Radial by Nichibutsu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s39opyK-PWE Rock n Rope by Konami (ported to Colecovision) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ow4Vn0_M6rA&t=365s Wizard of Wor by Midway (Ta ta ta ta!) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Lodc0kFYuo You are a true "21st century CEO" by utilizing the internet to its maximum potential: Youtube videos, Facebook activity, Atari age stuff, and everything else that you're doing right. As for the haters, it's like the old Aristotle saying goes: "“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.” By 2021 they're probably going to buy an Amico for themselves! Thanks again!
  10. Way back in the day, I was excited to learn about "Tunnels & Trolls" for the ColecoVision. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tunnels_%26_Trolls However, most likely as a result of the video game crash of 1984, T&T turned into vaporware Any chance of a T&T game for the Amico?
  11. Hi Tommy, Here are some classic arcade games that would make for excellent "ports" to the Amico. Because most (if not all) of them are obscure, it probably would be easy to score licenses for these games.
