  2. I've been collecting a bunch of different Famiclones recently, but this one in the shape of an XBOX might be my current favorite! lol Spoiler alert! It's crap. But really I think I collect them just because they "exist" and not really because they are anything I intend to use on a regular basis. They are just funny to me!
  3. So im bored, wanting to make an arcade style controller for my TI. I have an old (broken) NES advantage arcade controller hanging around. It went through a flood and never worked after that. Why not rewire it to work for my TI? I should be able to locate what pins do what on a TI controller, then use those to hook up to the Advantage. I dont THINK it should be too tough What do you all think?
  4. I know this has been discussed already but i was curious to see the results of a poll. In todays competitive marketplace, three is a crowd, especially when your market is slowly becoming a niche when compared to mobile gaming (sadly.) Each company has pros and cons: Microsoft Pros: Combined entertainment device, has captured mature gamers Cons: Has always had issues with profitability of the Xbox devision, which shareholders/executives can't be happy about Nintendo Pros: Cash rich company, has captured youth and loyalty niches Cons: Shrinking market share, minimal adoption of Wii U (to put it kindly) Sony Pros: Market leader, top notch devices Cons: The rest of the company has been hit HARD by competition from South Korean manufacturers. Who do you think will be next, and why? I see it being a two-console market by the next generation.
  5. Yes, I know this is mainly an Atari forum, but NintendoAge doesn't allow new members. I love F-ZERO for my SNES, but I hate how its only single player. I think if they had had a multiplayer option, it would have been considered one of the greatest games of all time. Has anyone tried to ever homebrew a SNES multiplayer version of the game? Is it even possible? I would buy one of those carts in a heartbeat.
  6. Nintendo collectors may not realize that collecting Japanese Famicom games can be a cheaper option AND get you some games that we never got! Game Collector John Riggs shows us some fun & cheap Famicom games for Nintendo fans! Games Shown: Akumajo Special: Boku Dracula-kun Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti New Ghostbusters II Parodius Da! Star Wars Joy Mech Fight Kid Niki 2 Samurai Pizza Cats Holy Diver Wai Wai World 2: SOS!! What other Famicom games would you recommend to a non-Japanese speaker like me?
  7. I was browsing through some boxes I got out of storage at my parents' house a few years ago, and discovered a 16-page pamphlet called Game Enthusiast's Magazine: A friend of my mother's gave this to me in the early '90s, and the issue I have is July/August 1990, Vol. 1, No. 1, published by PAL Publishing in Fresno, CA. I can't find anything about this online -- anyone ever heard of it? It has 5 pages of Lynx and Atari ST coverage toward the beginning, including a full-page Lynx ad from BRE Software and an Atari ST scanner review (!). This is followed by 3 pages of Legend of Zelda tips and 4 pages of Sega Genesis reviews. The rest of the pages are the cover, an editor's note, a Marketplace page, and another full-page ad from BRE on the back. It also has an ad for "The Game Domain BBS" (misspelled as Domian). I've scanned it and attached a PDF. Obviously it's yellowed with age and isn't in the best shape, though the scan probably makes it look worse than it is. BTW I got this in New Hampshire, so it clearly wasn't just a local distribution. Anyway, check it out and let me know what you think! Atari Lynx and ST fans may find this particularly interesting, but the magazine clearly wanted to cover a broad range of systems. Since BRE Software was also in Fresno, and was the primary advertiser, maybe they were responsible for putting this out. Game Enthusiast's Magazine, Vol. 1 No. 1 July-August 1990.pdf
  8. I'm curious if there's any collectors of this out there, and if you like the way the characters are designed. Are you using them with your Wii U, or are you just collecting them? I have a 3DS and no accessory to play them on (yet), so at the moment they are staying in their packages and are part of my Nintendo collection. There was so much hype on the release of these devices, so did they live up to the hype they received in your opinion, or are you in general disappointed with them? I picked up the Mario figure this morning, and personally find the figure well done and detailed. Are you collecting just a select few of these are are you getting all of them as they get released? There seems to be plenty all over the place (Walmart, Gamestop, Best Buy, etc), but did you find shortages and couldn't get a particular figure before Christmas, and are you still having trouble locating the ones you want now? I wasn't planning on getting these, since in particular I don't have a Wii U and will have to wait for the peripheral for the 3DS, but I love the way they display. What are your thoughts on collecting these from Nintendo? Do you like them? Are you obsessed? Were you not impressed? Do you think they'll become harder to obtain down the road (1st release in particular) and do you think the prices on the first runs will increase exponentially? I'm mostly curious as to what people out there at AtariAge think of these figures and how they play if you do have a Wii U you can play them on. Thanks for your thoughts. Steve

  10. Just pimping my auctions. I have over a hundred in my eBay store and a bunch of auctions too. Take a peek! All profits guaranteed to be recycled into classic gaming. If I've bought from you here (and I have bought from most people who sell here), you know what I'm talking about. eBay Seller: ianoid
  11. My dad recently showed me a game he picked up years ago at a yard sale. I have never seen anything like it. It is a Nintendo NES game cartridge. The game is SMART BOY Tetris. It is in a plastic box with game instructions. Appears it was a rental game. Anyway, it is obviously super rare. If anyone knows anything regarding it's worth or is interested in buying it, please contact me, as it will probably be going on Ebay soon.
  12. I've got a front-loader NES that's giving me no end of trouble. I picked it up this weekend and, too my total lack of surprise, wouldn't play games. So I went about the normal process of disassembling it, cleaning the connectors, disabling the 10NES chip, etc. No luck. Most of the time I get a blank white or purple screen. I will occasionally get Super Mario sounds (I've been testing with a SMB/Duck Hunt cartridge that I can verify works). So I ramped it up and went after the connector on the main board with Brasso. It got a lot of nasty stuff off. I reattached the 72-pin connector and the load tray and it worked! Or at least I got the SMB/Duck Hunt intro screen. But it's only worked that once. Since then I get the same blank screen most of the time. I still occasionally get those sounds, and more rarely I get a very corrupted intro screen. So I went to town on the 72-pin connector. Isopropyl alcohol, 600 sandpaper, the whole thing. Still nothing. So I ordered a new 72-pin connector. I got that yesterday. I plugged it in and got the exact same result. Where do I go from here? Do I just keep on using Brasso until no black stuff at all comes off? Or could there be another culprit — maybe a bad IC? I can post pictures of the main board this evening if it will help.
  13. The Nintendo Gamecube may have struggled against the Playstation 2 and original Xbox for gamer's hearts & wallets, but this little console eventually produced a bunch of classic titles, as well as some great Hidden Gems. Here is Part 1 for Gamecube collectors looking to find more Hidden Gems for their library! What games would you like to see in Parts 2 and 3?
  14. http://youtu.be/Hl968nZTcYM The Nintendo Wii may have seen its share of crappy shovelware games, but buried beneath all that are some truly fun Hidden Gems for game collectors. If you are looking for some new Wii games, here are some I recommend! Games Shown: de Blob Sin & Punishment: Star Successor Zack & Wiki Quest for Barbaros' Treasure Cursed Mountain Disney Guilty Party Overlord: Dark Legend Speed Racer No More Heroes 1 & 2 Question: What piece of Wii hardware or accessory do you think will be rare or valuable in the future?
  15. Hi everyone! I recently started getting loose Nintendo DS and 3DS carts for my collection. Not only have I found loose carts to be extremely cheap where I live, but I also realized that I have access to games that I would never get CIB. I used to be obsessed about getting CIB copies (especially for DS and 3DS games), they tend to be hard to store, easy to lose if you're not careful and it's hard to display those games properly. So I was wondering if anyone out there was having a similar problem and maybe found a way to display DS and 3DS carts in a way that looks cool or at least different. I was searching online and most of the solutions require you to get 3D-printed stands that are usually expensive and I would need to pay international shipping for them. At the moment, I'm using a case that was made to store small screws and that can hold a bunch of DS games, but it doesn't look great. What do you think? Thanks in advance!
  16. Hi! I've been collecting games for years without knowing it, but I really started getting into collecting properly for a year or so. I have a general questions for all of you, since I assume most of the people on this forum know a lot about collecting. So how important is it for you to get CIB games? Do you mainly care about acquiring games to play them and getting them CIB is secondary or is it the other way around? I just bought Kid Icarus: Uprising without the stand and I'm just wondering if I should have been more patient to get the game, plus the stand and cardboard box. Nevertheless, I'm just super excited to be able to enjoy that game since I've been meaning to play it forever, but I couldn't find it at a fair price. Just wondering how you guys feel about this. Thanks!
  17. Hello friends, I've got a new project that I'm going to be working on and I wanted to get the word out. I am a big fan of the arcade game Gauntlet: ...and who wouldn't be, its big, its beautiful, and its fun for up to 4 players! Hands down, the single best port of this arcade classic is Tengen's Gauntlet IV for the SEGA Genesis/MegaDrive: With a title like Gauntlet IV, one would assume that this is a sequel of some sort, which could never be as good as the original, but that's where you're wrong. Gauntlet IV has 4 modes of play, 1 being a pixel-perfect port of the arcade classic (including 4-player support), then a few other variants with some cool RPG and battle elements. As I recently picked up a MIB complete copy of this game (replacing my previous cartridge only version), I started playing it again, and realized that a Genesis control pad just doesn't do it justice. So with my new found skills at creating arcade-like controllers I had the idea of creating a proper joystick controller to further my enjoyment of this game. After a bit of research regarding the original controls hardware used in the arcade cabinets, I realized that the linchpin to this endeavor would be to source an original Atari logo'ed ball-knob, 8-way leafswitch joystick, like this one (most of these pics "borrowed" from the internet): So for a little while now I've been on the hunt for one of these little beauties on ebay and over at the Arcade Forums. There were a few variants of this general/similar style of stick by Atari, including analog/digital, leafswitch/microswitch, and 4-way/8-way, but I need a very specific model, only used in a handful of Atari arcade games. Most of those on ebay are of the the wrong type (in 1 way or another), beat up pretty bad, or just really high priced. But last night, I was finally able to strike a deal for exactly what I was looking for, the only caveat being, was that the seller was selling a set of (4) of these controllers, not the "single one" that I needed. But we worked out a "decent" per-stick price for the overall package, so now I am patiently waiting for my (4) slightly used Atari logo'ed ball-knob, 8-way leafswitch joysticks. I will basically have 3 options of what to do with the extra 3 joysticks: 1) resell the unneeded 3 joysticks as arcade replacement parts 2) create and keep 4 Gauntlet Edition - VVG Experience Controllers 3) create 4, and sell 2 or 3 Gauntlet Edition - VVG Experience Controllers If I had 3 local friends that played video games with any regularity/proficiency, I would consider option 2, but that's not the case for me unfortunately (my friends suck). If there is interest from anybody here for such a creation (besides me obviously), some combination of options 3 & 1 are possible. If no one has any interest, then option 1 is my best bet. With all that being said, this will basically end up being built as a SEGA Genesis/MegaDrive 3-button arcade stick, with the arcade-correct Gauntlet joystick and pushbuttons. So why would I ever post this here, for this reason: Team Pixelboy's published, MSX conversion of Gauntlet for the ColecoVision, so it technically falls into the ColecoVision realm! Fortunately this port doesn't require the keypad, and with a little bit of wiring trickery by me, I will be able to make what will be a 3-button SEGA Genesis/MegaDrive controller, also work as a 2-button ColecoVision controller for this fine port. And obviously while this controller will be able to be used for any system and/or game that can make use of a SEGA Genesis/MegaDrive 3-button controller, I'm touting that this will be the ultimate controller for the following Gauntlet-esque games: Dandy - the original that started it all as an Atari Program Exchange game, which inspired the Gauntlet arcade franchise: available on: Atari 8-Bit / Commodore 64 / Amstrad CPC Dark Chambers - Atari's "commercial" release of Dandy: available on: Atari 2600 / 8-Bit / 7800 Gauntlet - home port: available on: Amstrad CPC / Atari ST / Commodore 64 / SEGA Master System / ColecoVision Gauntlet II - home port: available on: Amstrad CPC / Atari ST / Commodore 64 Gauntlet III - home game: available on: Amstrad CPC / Atari ST / Commodore 64 Gauntlet IV - home port/game available on: SEGA Genesis/MegaDrive (as noted above) Additionally I believe that it may be possible to to allow this controller to also work with the Nintendo NES ports of Gauntlet and Gauntlet II as well (in addition to all NES games), more info on this to come. So while right now I have no fabulous pictures of a completed example to show off, I'm just looking to see if there is any interest, from anybody here for such a controller. No matter what anybody else thinks/feels regarding this project, I will be building 1 for myself. The main reason I bring this up here, is mainly due to the fact that I had to purchase 4 of the Atari joysticks, to get the 1 that I needed/wanted. As they are fairly expensive and hard to come by, I would hate to re-sell all 3 joysticks, then have one or more people speak up asking to buy this controller (that I wouldn't be able to build). On the other hand if there is no interest here at all for such a thing, I would probably list the joysticks for sale sooner-than-later to recoup their cost. At this point I don't have a firm selling price, or time-frame. I can only estimate that the finished Gauntlet Edition - VVG Experience Contollers would sell for somewhere in the $300-$400 range, and could be ready as soon as late January, or after. So again, I don't need any sort of "firm commitment" or "down-payment" money at this time (and obviously final decision to purchase would be after the 1st one is built so that you could see what it will be like), I'm just checking to see if knowing all of this info, if there is any interest. As I deal with ColecoVision hardware more than anything else, and there is a ColecoVision port of Gauntlet, I thought I would offer the "idea" of these here first before checking Sega/Atari collectors for their interest. Last note, due to the limited availability of the vintage Atari Joysticks, I can't say that any more than these potential 4 could/would ever be made. If a group of buyers "speak" up with interest in this project, and all agreed they would like to see these limited to only 4 total examples ever built, I'd be fine with that too. So just a little food for thought, and I look forward to any thought/comments/feedback. Thanks.
