And didn't you know... they're not even partners and it's not even a big deal.  They just sell their licenses to anyone.

Damn, then Major League Baseball has a "Senior Vice President of Just Saying Yes to Everyone Who Walks In the Door"

How do I get that cushy gig? Plus you would have thought MLB was smart enough to save a few bucks and just make that person a junior clerk or something. 🤪

Maybe someone should them send this, seems real important:

Assuming it happens , I wonder what the discount for “press the button” to purchase all games might be. 

Probably won't be huge because the games are so reasonable. I am figuring at minimum it will cover the cost of Sesame Street & Care Bears and I am going to buy the rest anyway so why not?

Tommy,

 

It was good seeing you and Victor together again.  Brings back old memories.  I used to watch you guys on G4TV.  I liked your Batman joke about the toilet.  Lol.

 

By the way Tommy, ask Victor if I can have his Vectrex.  Lol.

I agree ! Discount or not I am buying it all ! It would be a nice bonus to have a small discount 😀

Tommy,

 

What about a Smokey and the Bandit type game on Amico?

While on the subject of late 70s/early 80's movies - I wold love to see an Every Which way But Loose and Any which Way You Can set of games. I can picture - Philo getting away from a Biker gang.. Having to fight in parking lots to get money. Searching for a certain person. Side quests involving Clyde. Country Music.  I'm about 30% serious on this.. After thinking about it while typing this out,  It would be a fun adventure/beat-em up. 

 

Of course you could get a number of Clint Eastwood games from movies, with a partnership..  I'll let you use your imagination for the others. :)

Hi Magma,

 

Sure.  Send me a PM here or DM on Twitter.

 

 

This is why more gamers need to pay attention to the Amico. What other gaming corporations would get that close to actual gamers and fans? 🤘😎🤘

Yet the haters try to use it against me. 

 

Unsuccessfully I might add as they all scream into their empty echo chamber of negativity and narcissism.

Tommy,

 

Are you still going to hire all of us?  I want to be a game tester for Amico.

 

I'm down to work at the Canadian office with both Petes, CMartin604 and my fellow canadians, hey.

Great idea from Tommy to make two top 10 rankings. (Or is it two top 12 ? 🤔 lol  😆)

In bold are games that appear in the two rankings.

 

Solo mode

1- Moon Patrol           That will be a hard game, and it's better for me to play alone because I am really patient and other people are usually not !

2- Astrosmash            I want to play this game like I played the original one, alone. At least, the first few times !

3- Cloudy Moutain      Same thing as Astrosmash, and when it comes to adventure, I am a meticulous person, so I don't want somebody going east while I would have wanted to go south ! lol

4- Evel Knievel            I want to play for fun, but I especially want to play to relive his wonderful career !

5- Night Stalker          First time I will play in multiplayer mode, but when it will become harder for the others, I will try to finish this game alone !

6- Skiing                    I am looking forward to use the Amico controller for this game. I hope it will have career mode like in Corn Hole, but probably not.

7- Breakout               I will play this game alone. I am curious to see how it will work playing with other people !

8- Shark Shark          After playing it in multiplayer, I will play in Solo to try to make the highest possible score.

9- Finigan Fox            I like platform games ( Rayman, etc ) I know nothing about this game, but I like the graphics and animation. For sure I will love this game.

10- Rigid Force Redux   There was a time where I play a lot of Shoot em up ! Axelay, Gradius, etc. I will also love this game !

 

 

Multiplayer Mode  

1- Night Stalker        It will be exciting, stressful and communication will be a most on some levels !

2- Snafoo                  Are you saying 8 players ! And a lot of different mode. It will be very fun ... if I have good opponents, because I am really good at this game ! I hope AI will be much better than in the original game !

3- MLB Baseball         Looking forward to play with my son. This game will probably lose his appeal when I will play Solo, so it's a wonderful 3rd place in Multiplayer Mode !

4- Shark Shark        That will be a lot of fun. Can have some potential for a top 3 if my family love playing it !

5- Biplanes                My son is in love with this game right now. We will play often !

6- Nitro Derby           If the control is really really good, this game can make a surprise in the top 3. Can't wait to test it !

7- Battle Tanks          Seems to have some value in this re-imagined game. Another game I will play with my son and his friends !

8- Missile Command  Will be fun to defend our city with other people. Can also be different attacking them. I really like the siren in this game ! It's like a real attack will happen. It's almost worrying for real !

9- Side Swipers         The only reason this game is so low on my top 10, is because I don't know how long I will like to play it. I am not sure about the value (from what I have seen). Probably will show the game to everyone and it will depend if they like it or not.

10- Dynablaster        I played a lot with Bomberman with my friends. Probably with some surprise it could be a lot of fun. I will see if my new friends like this kind of game.

 Utopia would definitely come before Sea Battle & Sub Hunt. 

Hoping for Christmas 2021 if possible.

 

 

Of the non launch titles, in the "yes we're definitely doing it" category, Utopia is probably at the top of my list. I've been waiting for a Utopia 2 for the Inty for years. An updated version on the Amico will be very welcome news.

That was so much fun to watch. Honestly I'm not even sure if monthly is frequent enough for you two to get together.

I played with my 8 years old son three days ago. He like this kind of game. But playing with the "layer" on the screen ( Intellivision Lives on PS2 ) was not really fun ! 🥺

Yeah I really like Victor. What a gentleman.

 

So Tommy is saying that we should have 35 games at launch. We saw 30 games in the last gameplay trailer (if they are all ready).

So, what could be the 5 other games that we should have for launch ? I really don't know. Here are some guesses !

So what's your guesses ?

He could hire us all here to do a "We Are The World" remake but about Amico... conducted by Rainbow of course.

 

"We are The World... We Are Amico!... We are blah blah blah you fill in the blanks...
