  1. I really miss the days of hand-drawn artwork.
  2. I definitely overpaid for mine, but I am not Canadian so my chances of finding one in the wild are basically nil. I tried to acquire at least one US prototype and a few copies of the Canadian release previously but was outbid every time. I think one of them was owned by AtariLeaf (which he mentioned in this thread above but later sold shortly thereafter) although I could be mistaken. Without a lot of luck, it's hard to acquire a legitimate copy of this game cheaply. Even the diskette release is very rare and fairly expensive due to it being a dual-format flippy disk that draws attention from Atari and Commodore gamers and collectors.
  3. As far as I know he still does. https://atariage.com/forums/gallery/album/2504-boxes-for-atari-2600-games/
  4. More notably, Sega's North American operations were in San Diego for several years after they purchased Gremlin Industries. Many early Sega coin-op and consumer games were developed there. http://gdri.smspower.org/wiki/index.php/Sega_Electronics Most if not all of Sydney's ColecoVision games (likely including Energy Quiz) were developed by Artech in Ottawa, ON.
  5. That would be my guess as well.
  6. Free Play Florida is an annual three day gaming expo that's tentatively scheduled for November 20-22 at the Caribe Royal in Orlando as you posted above. Tickets are not on sale yet and no one knows if it's actually going to happen this year. The show has not been cancelled yet but it's not looking too good with the way things have been going lately in Florida with regard to the large number of COVID cases. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/free-play-florida-2020-electronic-gaming-expo-tickets-101567057804
  7. The shirt was supposed to be free with purchase according to this original ad.
  8. Not to flog a dead horse, but here's a decent article with some info on C64 power supplies... https://retrogamestart.com/answers/replace-c64-power-supply-voltage-failure-will-kill-your-c64
  9. I have one of these cartridges and can probably dump it at some point. Mine is the Canadian white label variant but was purchased via eBay a few years back from a US seller.
  10. I just randomly came across a picture of one of these pins while searching an old hard drive. It looks like another once surfaced recently because someone just grabbed one.
  11. Any type of passthrough device is probably your best bet.
  12. Je ne sais pas si le propriétaire l'a toujours mais je ne pense pas qu'il parle français. Si vous parlez français seulement, essayez de poster un message ici et il est possible quelqu'un vous aide... https://atariage.com/forums/forum/9-international/
  13. TechnoVision was a brand name used by Video Technology Ltd. for non-CreatiVision products, similar to Atari's use of Atarisoft and Mattel's M-Network. VTech is and has always been based in Honk Kong. I'm not sure how and why their 2600 games were distributed mostly in Europe but seemingly nowhere else. I do suspect those games may have been developed by a subcontractor in Germany or elsewhere in Europe based on them being released there, and on them being original games of higher quality than most of the garbage coming out of Asia at that time. But that's just speculation on my part.
  14. Even before that while it was still on the market and actively being supported, the Jaguar always seemed to me like a niche console with a cult-type following (i.e. not unlike today). By 1999, even Atari itself was already gone. The Jag never really being commercially viable coupled with it being the now-defunct Atari's last gasp pretty much instantly elevated it to "retro" status.
  15. I'm pretty sure the sticker that appears orange is just faded or discolored from a printing variation. The blue stickers are specific to the Commodore 64. My copies of Bristles and Flip and Flop both have them.
