Looks like Mexican Fiesta Night at the OEB household. The aftermath of one-too-many bean burrito's. :lolblue:

The Atomic Edition was born from a slight mix-up by @RxScram, who used an old NASA interplanetary space probe parts supplier list by accident. The Atomic Edition features extended controller run time of the half-life of Plutonium 238 (approximately 87.7 years). Because of its unique power system the Atomic Edition doesn't have LEDs but instead has it has its own subtle continuous green glow. The Atomic Edition also comes with its owned wheeled, lead lined carrying case, which we recommend you keep the Atomic Edition in at all times when not playing.

@Tommy Tallarico any chance of a Thundercats game? Used to love watching that when I was a kid 😀

SWEET JEBUS!!!  YES!  1000x, this!  I know that it will never happen, but damn would I love to see a Thundercats game. Or Silverhawks. I mean, you're talking about a very, very niche audience, but I'd buy it on name alone.

Just ordered some from their website. Virgils.com (reedsinc.com). Order was confirmed so I hope I get the right stuff, and don’t get bumped to November’s stock, which is ginger beer. 
 

I like me some root beer from time to time, and also love nutmeg, so curious to see how they are together (your chocolate is in my peanut butter). 
 

For not fancy meal times 1919 root beer on tap fits the bill. Root beer with vanilla based add ins are a safe bet for me also, although I like many types, including maple or honey.  
 

Thanks for the recommendation!


Nice!!   3 bottles for $16.  That isn't bad.  I've seen them for $7 - $10 for one bottle in stores.

 

Here's the exact link if folks are interested.  Better hurry up though... I just bought 30 bottles!

Nothing in the works currently.  But open to the possibility for sure.

Whispering quietly - UI  Video. Can't wait to see it.

 

 

 

 


I mentioned this on Amico All Access this weekend.

 

Going to do a live stream of it so we can do an interactive demo and answer questions.  We are in the middle of moving into our new offices so will take a few weeks to get everything settled.

 

Can't wait to give folks a video tour of the new place!!

I'm sure Sony will be immediately fixing all this.  But interesting to see how complex all this stuff really is.

Getting it out there and having people play it is sometimes the best way to really find all the issues.

We should invite some other folks from here who are in the area.

 

 

Works for us.  I know Wolfy and nurmix are close. Hey OEB, whats your commute time from where you are at?

 

Hearing much of CA is going back into lock down again effective tomorrow.  We’re in no hurry on our end and would rather wait as long as it takes, if necessary.  Just be sure to put it somewhere safer then you did when you shot the video 😇

It would be cool on Amico, that when you pause a retro re-imagined game, that it shows the retro look in the background. Like a screenshot.  Also, every time you start a retro re-imagined game, it'll show a 10 second game play clip of the retro look.

Not sure if this was mentioned.  But is there going to be a quick resume option on Amico games?  Such as you're playing one game, you pause it & want to jump into another game, then return to the first game you were playing.  Will that be possible?

Thinking back, want to ensue everyone understands that by me saying “in no hurry” didn’t mean to imply we were not supper excited. Meant simply that we would rather wait and pick up personally (no matter how long that may take) rather then be so impatient as to request shipment; that and to ensure no stress at IE to hurry and try to get it out to us, we understand thing are not normal ATM. Since announced that my wife won, it’s put a smile on our faces every day. I don’t think most here would think otherwise, but still wanted to post to ensure, JIC.

Considering @nurmix has an office there... I'm pretty sure he can make it!   :D

 

Yeah @wolfy62 should definitely come down as well! 

 

Can let you play some games.  And if you're REALLY lucky... I might even let you turn it on from scratch so you can see it boot up!!!  (y'know like we've been showing people and they've reported on for over a year and a half).

 

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

 

Yeah, we've been hearing rumors of major lockdowns coming again in California.  That would really SUCK for us considering our company move in date is supposed to be Dec. 1st!

Hopefully I can bring my best friend of 40 years Steve,an Amico FE investor-owner.

He is an avid Intellivision collector and player like myself who has the original 125 plus every homebrew made since.

And my 21 year old PS5 playing Son and current Amico naysayer.

Great kid but I would love to prove him wrong on this one!

Hopefully,I havent overextended the offer made to myself.😄

Tommy,say hello to Paul for me. Thanks,and have a super day!

Diet Root Beer??  Seriously?

At that point isn't it only taking about 100 calories off an 1,800 count!

 

:D

Yes... it's called not needing gigs and gigs of data to load for every game.  It just does that naturally!   :)

No worries!  I didn't think that at all.  Just thought you were being very gracious and understanding of the situation. 


Hoping to get you guys down at the beginning or middle of December!
