I'm letting you know ahead of time what these discounts are for, but in all fairness to Michael Thomasson (of GDG) you'll need to watch my video on how to get the discounts. I ordered the items in question. After paying for them he offered to give the viewers of this video a discount on some of the merchandise. You must follow the directions of the video to get the discounts. Items Ordered Michael's book "Downright Bizarre Games: Video Games that Crossed the Line" Hardcover Edition. "Super Cobra" (7800) Hack of Bob Decrescenzo's 2012 "Scramble" for the 7800. Only 50 copies made available for sale. $39.75 "Pit-Fighter" (7800) Unfinished, but playable prototype. Currently on sale for $29.99 (regularly $36.75). Discounts (if you watch the video) $10 off on either edition of the book Additional $5 off on "Pit-Fighter" so $24.99 after watching the video Good Deal Games Unpacking Video (Discount Info) Michael offered to do this for me without my asking, although I did tell him that I was planning to show them when they arrived, plus do a Review Video. Also, he offered me discounts on these 2 items (just to be totally upfront about all this). Good Deal Games Home Page It's like I said in a previous blog entry, the homebrew and retro gaming community is made up of truly awesome people. Thanks Michael for all that you do. This sentiment applies to everyone here at AtariAge as well. 🥰
Recently while exchanging emails with Michael Thomasson of Good Deal Games I expressed an interest in buying two games for the 7800, both of which were listed on the GDG site as SOLD OUT. Michael told me that he'd go through his Trade Show boxes, in hopes that he'd find additional copies. Well, he did. Both games are shooters, and were being developed by Tynesoft, However, they were both cancelled prior to being completed. When the protos for both games were discovered in 2008 by Curt Vendel they were unfinished and quite buggy. Both games were finished and given the polish that they deserved by Robert DeCrescenzo, Mitchell Orman, and Eckhard Stolberg. Both will now run on a stock 7800 console, NTSC and PAL. Plutos $44.75 Baz Daniels Youtube Play Video Sirius $44.75 The No Swear Gamer Review Video I subscribe to both channels. Hopefully they won't mind me using their videos. Whenever I use someone else's video for a Patreon post I ask for their permission first. But this isn't Patreon. The only exception that I make to this rule is when I promote another Youtube channel on Patreon; I make those posts Public. Besides, I post Patron Only exclusive content at least once each day. Last-night I made 2 exclusive posts. If you have a Youtube channel, please leave a comment if you don't wish for me to promote your channel. Or, if you do. Patreon/Cessnaace Last-night I also received an email from CollectorVision concerning the 3 recently released games that they are offering for the ColecoVision. While I attempted to post this last-night (along with the info on the two 7800 games) here in my AtariAge blog, that blog entry failed to publish, so I'm giving it another try here. I did post about it last-night at Patreon/Cessnaace. I'm just going to copy and paste from the CollectorVision email, but I'll have to add the prices as they weren't in the main body of the email.

MSX Conversion The contains: Box Game Cartridge Instruction Manual I really would like to purchase these three games, however I do not as yet own a ColecoVision (I really want one though). Recently, I conducted a poll in the Community section of my cessnaace Youtube channel, where I asked my subscribers to vote on which retro console should be my next (retro) console purchase. The choices were Intellivision, ColecoVision, and Atari XE GS. By a wide margin the XE GS received the most votes. So I'm saving up for one (and for a Switch). Plus, I also really want carts of Plutos and Sirius, and I DO own a 7800. Oh, and I do own Hustle Chumy for the SG-1000. Even though it rarely results in any, I'm again asking for comments. If anything it provides me with some feedback.
