Yup, COVID related.  That really is a beautiful picture of her.

Ginger was the girl you went out with... but Maryanne was the girl you went home to.  

 

RIP Ms. Wells.

Hi Tommy,

I was recently trying to list my top 10 Intellivision games from the original 125.  What a hard task to accomplish!

 

Anyway, it got me to thinking about the original 2 player games I don't play anymore :(  and wish I could more easily.

 

I know you want to establish the Amico as it's own entity and at some point release some classic Intellivision games or packs.

 

First, does the Amico allow for wan play?  I think I remember that it doesn't as it is Coach play with the family.

If it does, can the original Intellivision games take advantage of this?  Playing MLB with my brother would be a blast. Hard to do these days.  I see him 1 or 2 times a year :(

 

Next,  This is a BIG ask.  But I think a good idea ( certain I'll hear if it is or isn't LOL )

Can you sell the "Classic Game Set"  This would include the Intellivision Library ( what you have rights to release )  and 2 Classic Controllers.  Complete with domed buttons?

I was never an overly user. It was all feel.  Kinda hated the Intellivision II controllers because not only did the domed keypad go away, the replacements were completely smooth.... :(

 

I totally get the overlay though.  First few plays of a game like Space Battle or Utopia certainly needed them.  Even Now, If I were to play Bomb Squad I would need to at least look at it for a minute to remember.

 

I think the current controller with the overlay image is cool.  I like it a lot.  Without using it, I cannot picture the tactile feedback of it though.

So, a clear physical domed add on or something could work also.

 

But I think a retro looking controller in "classic" sets would be awesome.

Thanks!

Thanks for making this video Pete. Covid is hitting Southern California really hard right now (https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/doctors-nurses-can-t-take-much-more-amid-covid-19-n1252582) and although I WANT the Amico yesterday, I also WANT it to be the best product it can be and not made at the unnecessary risk of lives. WANTS can wait, especially in a pandemic, so take your time Tommy and deliver the Amico when it is ready and it is safe to do so.

The new Moon Patrol looks great......but I wasn't even aware until I installed this on my bartop machine that Irem made a SEQUEL called Horion.

 

We need to get this as welll....it's great!!!

 

 

I like the look of that.  A bit like the lovechild of Centipede and Galaga...

2020 has been a real stinker of a year. Here's hoping better times are on the horizon. All the Best in 2021!

 

Cheers! 🍺

So sorry to hear this.  Do whatever you can to stay safe.  

 

And don't underestimate this thing.  Wear the right PPE and stay sanitized.  We're getting an average of 2 Covid/Pandemic calls in our town a day.  It's nuts.

There are so many games from the Sega Saturn library that have been forgotten, that could be successful if they had an Amico refresh. Homie Zendocon brought up Christmas NiGHTS in another thread (

) and that is a great idea. What do you think?

Well Tommy, here is another game request.  It's the last one forever.  I promise.  😉

I never heard of this one before.  It looks like fun.  I know Shinobi was mentioned as a possible game idea.  It would be nice to get some kind of ninja style game on Amico.  This one is from Namco.

Hoping the video tomorrow includes a Mattel update. Mostly because my son got a boatload of Hot Wheels for Christmas and he also got Hot Wheels ID 😂. It would be interesting if these interact with the console somehow....but without the micro transactions in the mobile app.

Yes, the last one for 2020 and forever.  I might do more.  Lol.  I think some of you will miss my game requests if I really stop.  Anyway, thanks for the Happy New Year message.

Happy New Year everybody. If we make it to April and the Amico makes its launch date, 2021 will already be shaping up to be a better year. If we're all dead from who knows what before then, well... Tommy can brag about how awesome the thing was going to be in the after life. "Yeah man, the thing was gonna make coffee, you could iron your jeans with it, the remotes detected aliens,.."
