Cardillo's making movies and stuff, it seems

Better to passively sit on an old brand than to actively piss on it, right?

Ain't that Chirs Cardillo Sr though?

Wow, I'm amazed this thread made it 2,500 posts. Who knew fighting 'the dark side" would be so popular. ;)

I'm afraid the Kevtris FPGA / Zimba / NT Mini / Super NT thread has knocked this one out of the ballpark! :evil:

And unlike the other guys with 300+ pages of thread posts, he actually delivered an excellent product! :grin:

 

Still got a ways to go yet to beat Chameleon but give it time. Proof that awesome products get just as many posts than outright shams!

Make that two excellent products and only 86 pages that separate Kevin's thread from Kennedy's thread.

I understand the anger towards them for messing with this community but i think they 2 tabletops look good.

 

Do you care about Robotech or Rainbow Brite, though? I know they couldn't get Donkey Kong, but some existing arcade licenses would hold a lot more appeal for me.

What's up with the I recorded the audio on my desk at work quality :)

 

I think she was there for "M Appeal"

 

The FAQs are amusing.

 

What system is the Coleco Mini Arcade running on?

The Coleco Evolved Mini Arcades function like the original Coleco Mini Arcades. This means it is running on a closed system that will boot directly into the game.

 

Why did we start with these games?

We thought it was important to show off the Coleco Evolved’s updated technology by bringing new experiences to the Mini platform. Robotech is a classic anime franchise presented in a genre that we know our fans will be excited to play on the platform. Rainbow Bright is an iconic girls brand, also presented in a classic genre, that will introduce a new generation of young gamers to the home arcade experience.

 

Is this the same company/team that worked on the Coleco Chameleon?

The Coleco Chameleon was developed by a third-party licensee who was responsible for all aspects of the development. We terminated our relationship with that licensee once it became clear the product was not living up to the Coleco name.

Maybe I'm not familar enough with kickstarter logistics, but why are there $45 and $55 levels for what appears to be the same thing? Does the early bird business seems to assume they will get over 200 backers at that level with 30 days left.

 

What is this "shot in gold" or "shot in silver" business, this isn't The Godfather.

It's an incentive to sign up quickly. The first 200 people get the lower $45 rate. Then it dims out so everyone else gets the $55 minimum.

I get that, but is the early bird usually still going on with only 29 days left of the campaign?

I don't understand what you're asking. How long do you think the campaign will run? It started today and will go for 30 days.

 

I think they'll hit their $30k target if these little units are remotely as popular as everyone thinks they are, even with the less desirable software and stickers.

I'm not sure that Rainbow Brite will do good.

Whoa... they're halfway they-re. Huh. Go New Jersey?

 

Honestly, the RB game looks slightly more interesting than the Robotech one, which looks like a crummy version of the already somewhat crummy Macross: DYRL game released 20+ years ago on the Saturn.

Okay. Didn't see the start date. Seems like a short campaign. Maybe not. The $55 ones also have 1 backer each.

I have to wonder how many backers are buying these things just so they can mod the heck out of them as soon as they get them in the mail. :)
