  1. favorites? off the top of my head... Muncher, Halo 2600, AVCS Tec Challenge, AStar, Toyshop Trouble, Vault Assault. I'm likely forgetting a few. also, I still have a few I haven't played yet as my game room has been under construction. regrets? hmmm. I bought a few hacks from Hozer once, I think Doomzerk and Berzerk Renegade were a couple of them...I kinda feel like the labels are pretty badly made and even though the games play and are fine, it makes then feel cheap. The Last Ninja isn't a very good game but I didn't pay much for it.

  3. There were 100 CIB copies sold. You can still buy a non-limited cartridge at Good Deal Games. not sure who owns the other 99 LE copies, but I own one of them.
  4. is there any still available? if there is, i"d like a copy.
  5. 1) I think the problem is that when batariBasic first came out, and when someone new decides to make a game, it's pretty easy to make a simple game using the demo codes that are available as examples. bB is a good tool, but some programmers seem to settle for whatever is easiest to "finish" and not push the boundaries of what the 2600 can handle or batariBasic for that matter. Assembly on the other hand is more difficult to master and thus weeds out a lot of lazy programmers. 2.) Because of what I wrote above, I think what people are afraid of is that too many games written in bB in an hour were going to end up on a cartridge and for sale, this would over-saturate the market with games that still need a lot of work. 1) I think the problem is that when batariBasic first came out, and when someone new decides to make a game, it's pretty easy to make a simple game using the demo codes that are available as examples. bB is a good tool, but some programmers seem to settle for whatever is easiest to "finish" and not push the boundaries of what the 2600 can handle or batariBasic for that matter.

I think your analogy has a few holes though. I agree that people can sell for whatever price they want (or try to), but there's a lot of factors there. hand crafted LED recreations would take a lot of time and money to create, while finger paintings are usually done quickly and on the cheap. If both market values are the same, it's clear that one is charging too much or the other isn't charging enough.
  6. Missing from that list is Orion's Puzzle Collection, and Zia and the Goddesses of Magic is now selling pre-orders. both can be bought from Orion's website
  7. I still haven't received my copy of this.
  8. nowadays, I rarely pick up anything that isn't a homebrew. I've run a bit low on space as well and figured it's just better to purge some titles from my collection that will probably never get played in order to make room for the homebrews.
  9. I've heard a lot of people have had issues with the website. The owner apparently uses eBay mostly to sell his games. but I'll let others chime in that have had recent transactions with him.
  10. shot in the dark, but would anyone be willing to let me use their US address and then mail it out to me once received (i'd pay for shipping of course) all fixed
  11. I'll take one if there's still any available.
  12. I believe the the prototype is of unknown origin...other than it was made by Universal. The cart was sold on ChaseTheChuckwagon which was later turned into GameGavel. There were 40 copies of the cart sold AFAIK
  13. The version on the cartridge is a finished game, there is a rom floating around that is an unfinished version.
  14. I'd love to order. but doesn't ship to Canada.
  15. This really depends. Limited Edition games nowadays are usually not very limited and sometimes come with awkward metal tins or whatnot that make it harder to organize on a shelf. So I generally stay away unless packaged normally or I find it for super cheap. I care more for the game inside than packaging. I generally don't care about DLC stuff either unless it's more than the character skin variety. I'd always pick a Special Edition over the Standard if the choice is available, but I won't pay any more than I would for the Standard. Basically, I'll take what I can get. I don't seek out LE or SE copies.

    STEAM

    I much prefer GOG over Steam. Though there are a few games I want that aren't available through GOG. I'm not sure about Pinball Arcade stuff though. I dislike Steam for several reasons, but to answer your questions. -I find steam to be a resource hog but to be fair, my PC is quite a few years old now. -Steam has ads but you can disable them. -I think it feels cluttered with too many similar options. you can have the games on multiple machines, you will need to install Steam on both.
  17. I haven't given up. but generally thrift shops only have some Xbox, 360, PS2, PS3, and Wii games nowadays. I occasionally find a PS1 game.
  18. I have about 500 2600 carts, I used to collect label variants but only major ones, I don't bother with ones of different year or other very minor label differences. I haven't actually bought any in a few years though. Mostly I just pick up homebrew games now.
  19. I play both. My PC is starting to get old now, but I use it mainly for FPS and Point and Click Adventure games because I like the keyboard/mouse control for those kind of games. I have tried many other types of games on my PC over the years and even with a 360 controller, I find it often more a hassle than the general ease of flicking on a console and playing a game on my TV. 1.) For me, I find I get a lot of eye strain from being closer to my monitor rather than on my couch and gaming on my TV, graphic wise it may be better, but comfort will often trump what little edge the PC has. And I don't have the space for a PC in my living room (besides my media box that I run Kodi on) 2.) I don't keep up with a lot of PC exclusive titles, any examples? I haven't heard of any PC exclusive titles that would draw people in. 3.) buying a quality graphics card can be just as expensive as buying a new console, plus not having any warranty (if you build yourself) and many more possible parts that will need to be replace/upgraded along the way, means that it can really go either way. Also, I think we are at a point where hardware shouldn't need replacing every 5 years as some games are taking just as long to make, I mean, If you look at the PS3 library, there aren't that many games that REALLY pushed the boundaries of what the system could do. 4.) While that IS an option, you still need to buy the right USB controller cables to do this. some of them are terrible to configure. PC does have more options though. 5.) Digital games are generally about the same price, I find (though I haven't compared much) . however, Steam and GOG do have some amazing sales. Like I said, I play on both for different reasons. I also tend to change by seasons. My basement (where my PC is) is cold in the winter and cool in the summer. so it's better to play PC games in the summer. My living room is warm in the winter and hot in the summer so it's better to play consoles in the winter.
