Interesting.  Thanks.

 

I think most of us have had to repair a hinge or two on our 5200s. The Big Sexy requires beefier hinges. 🙂

New Atari 5200 ProPaddle 2 Reviewed and Demonstrated

 

Where can I buy one, I already posted this on the YouTube video for this:

 

"Myself as well, where can I get one, FINALLY a controller Tempest owners have waited 8 YEARS FOR since Keithen Hayenga finished this masterpiece in 2012 after first working on it way back in 1983!!! This controller is PERFECT for Tempest so to David Alexander, don't worry about the "center point" on Tempest because it is not needed, the others you demo'ed maybe but not Tempest."

Wow, over 40 bucks. I played with the original one which likely didn't even cost $10!

Yeah it's pricey. They are clearly banking on us OG's buying them. I spent many an hour playing with this toy and it was indestructible. The figure could be positioned in any number of ways. The bike was a tank, as well as the crank.

 

I would love to actually see/hold one, just to compare against our childhood model from Ideal toys.

Magical Fairy Force is a new Atari 5200 head-to-head battle game from Average Software, whose previous 5200 efforts include Ratcatcher and RealSports Curling. If you haven't heard of Magical Fairy Force yet, here's a new introductory video from the game's author about the game!

The hype is real, now!

Looking good Ryan!  Nice to see a new TB game, especially one that was built around this controller. I have two, and I look forward to a test build (ROM).
Thanks for making the video Ryan and @David Alexanderthanks for sharing the video.

Check out Jenovi's presentation on analog joysticks, which has a lot to do with the original controller of the 5200. He really did a fine job, and your's truly makes an appearance, so that's possibly a plus. He also mentioned the Atari 5200 Podcast! 1f642.png
