Silly question... I couldn't make it through all 1000 pages. Is this available yet?


What is this??  You didn't make it through 1,000 pages!?!?   Blasphemy!  

Haha!  Just kidding.  It would probably take someone about a week to go through it all at this point.  :)

 

Amico will be coming out in April, 2021.

 

We had to delay our original 10.10.2020 date due to complications caused by Covid.

 

Thanks for the interest!

Well now, that looks pretty amazing.

Very cool.

 


Question:  Did he buy a second controller?

And if so...  Have you guys played any couch co-op games together yet?


Also... where is the console hooked up exactly?  Living room? His room?  Somewhere else?  Gaming area?

 

 

 

 

1. Not yet.

 

2. Not yet either.

 

3. In his room. The big TV (well,the biggest one!) Is mostly for my Wife and I,though for sports we all watch on it together.

I have a 60" TV my Wife and I go watch when my Son has his friends over to play games on the as my Wife calls it, 73"jumbotron.

That is where my Amico will be hooked up for the family. 👍

I am trying to sell my Son on the idea of Amico everyday.

He is a very resourceful gamer,he never buys a game he didnt review first and almost always plays them to the finish before he gets the next one.

No... I go right for the homemade pasta with my family sauce!

I hope you grow San Marzano tomatoes in your backyard!!

 

 

Made this today for lunch. Listening to this lady brings me right back to my childhood. My grandmother had the same broken English, same mannerisms, same wonderful garden in her backyard.

Hahaha!  Yes... I know you do.

 

Hmm.... let me see if I can think of something...

 

Okay... here's 2.  One for the 1,000 pages and one for the 25,000th post.

 

1.  We're working on a vertical scrolling 2D flight shooter called Flying Tigers! 

 

2.  We've started working on our Soccer/Football game to be released next fall and it's being developed in Italy!

 

 

Gotta go with legit 90k crowd chants on this man!!!

Pretty decent... but the Special Edition Bavarian Nutmeg is a whole different level!

 

There's a bottle currently selling on Amazon for $34!!

https://www.amazon.com/Virgils-Bavarian-Nutmeg-Root-Beer/dp/B00P721Z7I/ref=sr_1_26?crid=2V6EWHQOX8ZNV&dchild=1&keywords=virgil's+special+edition+bavarian+nutmeg+root+beer&qid=1605492550&sprefix=virgil+Special+Edition+Bavarian+Nutmeg%2Caps%2C408&sr=8-26

 

 

But it will be back and stocked at some point I would imagine.  If not... I'm writing a letter to the company and begging them!

:)

The trend of having the big next gen systems NOT in the living room is definitely a trend we have noticed and have lots of data supporting.  This is great news for us as the family living room will be where Amico sits!

 

Are there any couch co-op games for the PS5 or Series X on launch?

Just kinda cool - somebody named @Tommy Tallarico (I think I *may* have heard of him) just topped the charts on the Atari Age user leaderboard. Looks like he passed up some user easily with just a fraction of their posts, also someone who got booted from the Amico thread for trolling too - so win win.

Very cool!!   I didn't even know that was a thing.

 

I guess those folks have been too busy playing amicogames.

:D

It's Intellivision Master.  I only made the channel to do live chat.  YouTube won't allow live chat comments unless you have a channel.  I think they should let you regardless.  But it is what it is.  Lol.

1000 pages, awesome! now just think in 5 or 6 years when we are in the middle of the life of the Amico and we are on page 7000, we can think, "remember when we we just at the 1000 page", and thats the best past of this, we are just getting started.  :)

 

Big storms in the east tonight so I missed the Amico All access this week, :(  there is always next week.  Gonna go watch the replay.
