  1. I still shop there because the service is still good and I like to see games before I buy them.
  2. Not sure where to put this, so move it if you must. My local game store, good time games in waterloo, ontario, has gone downhill since the new owner came in. The prices for everything are increased. Haunted House for atari 2600 was 4.99 cdn, now it it 9.99 cdn. They got in a fairchild channel f, with no games, only coming with one controller and a power supply, and the new owner wanted $550 for it. I saw a man purchace a dreamcast for 124.99, when I got mine at the same place with the old owner for 99.99. They never get any new 2600 stuff, and the zellers carts they have are priced like US ebay even though, tbh, zellers carts aren't that hard to find up here. Their are some positive changes, like an increase of vintage computers and software they get. I want a vintage computer, I just don't want to spend the money they are worth right now, and I can't fix a cheap, broken one. After all that, I still go because most of the competitors are further away and/or also try to rip me off. I miss the old good time games.

    I have seen Combat, Pac-Man and Space Invaders show up before actually rare games before. Also are the protos being sold by Abduarte legit? The carts look real but I've never seen a lab loaner without the title on the cart. Something about only having a sticky note off to the side for the title seems off.

    Would it be possible to analyze the code for the Rush Hour proto and make the oil work and fix the display routine? not a request, just curious
  5. looking for a good vertically scrolling shmup, a good non sonic platformer, and a good arcade racing game for affordable prices. got any ideas
  6. Wow! SOMEONE didn't check their sources! I understand info was harder to get before the internet, but still.
  7. I was browsing through the atari 2600 connection issue 8 (http://www.atarimania.com/mags/pdf/atari-2600-connection-008.pdf) where I found mention of a game called Fire! by palmex. Apperently, you went into buildings, set them on fire, and then left. this is the only mention of this game i found. Here are my theories 1. Wrong system: maybe this game was released for atari"s 8 or 16 bit computers. 2. Lost prototype: this magazine often mentions unreleased games, sometimes with no mention of their unreleased status. 3. Mistaken identity: I don't think this is the case because i dont know how this happened. maybe they ment towering inferno or fire fighter. 4. Bootleg: maybe this is a bootleg with a different title and publisher of the games described in #3 anyone know more about this? p.s. this is not like that "wrap up" that my previous account, Irvingnator, posted about.
  8. sorry man, I assumed that the game was from a company called logitachi, as that was what is on the box. i searched on atarimania for logitachi under companys and couldn't find it, so I assumed it was new and posted it
  9. most likely PAL, as this is a brazillian cart
