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,.."

You forgot massage your feet. :lol:

Happy New Year to everyone, and a special one for Tommy Tallarico that started this thread ! Thank you for everything.

 

I also have a question. Covid is desastrous for hardware advancement. But what about software ?

Do you think EWJ 4 can still be launch for december 2021 ?

I say we really need a fanzine for Amico... I need to find some people to collaborate and think how to do it

Happy New Year everyone! Most of us made it through 2020. Now we can look forward to all the fun that lays ahead this year! I know we are looking forward to the Amico and all the cool things that go with it. New Colors. New games. Physical Media. Actually getting a hold of it and playing!!!

 

Besides the Amico and related things. What gaming goodness are you looking forward too?

 

I'll start it off by adding the possibility of the Switch Pro. My guess, Portable 1080p. Docked 4K. I saw a possible rendering and it included 4 game slots. Plus an external unit for 4 more in dock mode. I know Piracy would be rampant, but it would still be great to be able to install the physical media so you don't have to carry around carts.  Tommy says the Amico will handle this in a cool way, so that makes me happy!

 

I have more, but I'll start the list with that. Any one else care to add?

For me it's the Playdate handheld.  It seems like an interesting console.  Different and unique especially with that crank on the side.

NEW INTELLIVISION AMICO VIDEO TO START 2021!!

So many people went through so many challenges in 2020, so we wanted to start celebrating new and positive beginnings and a new year by showing off some brand new footage and audio from one of our six pack in games.

Astrosmash!!
 
Here's to a new year and new beginnings!

I look forward to sharing many more videos and information with everyone over the next few months.

Thank you Tommy for the new video. It's a great way to begin 2021. Looking forward to the Amico when it comes out. I can't wait.

Tommy,

 

I'm liking how Astrosmash is shaping up.  The sound effects are great and that music is awesome.  With the choir it's just so epic.

I was also going to comment on the music. Sounds amazing and epic. And this game is going to be included for free in every Amico? Amazing.

On the menu shown in the video -- will there be options to customize this? I like the mini screens but I noticed that when you scroll through the categories, the text is at an angle vs. straight on. Will we be able to play with the look and feel? I use Kodi for my media and I like to be able to change things around visually.

Astrosmash is looking great and the music is awesome! I love the physics of the weapons interacting with the asteroids. Nice to see the controller orientation swap and some of the early menus. Also I noticed the reviews count in stubbed is as 1979 - a pretty important date for Intellivision. Great video and a great way to start the new year.

Nice!  Sounds like a soundtrack to a movie.  I too have to say I don't like the angle of the menu for the UI. It almost made me feel dizzy to read it.

 

The game is awesome. It is good to see the console working, and I like how you pointed out all of the connections to the system to dissuade conspiracy theories.

Great video. Great looking game, and amazing music. I love it. One of the smaller things that I really enjoyed in this video, even though it was sort of in the background, was what was being shown on the controller at different times. It looked like in the main menu, you could use the controller to choose how the games were sorted. Then in the game, your score was shown on the controller. That was some very cool stuff and I'd love to see more of that.

 

Happy New Year to all of the Intellivision Family!

You have heard it here first folks... just got off the phone with Rainbow and after he saw the newest Astrosmash update from Intellivision, he has decided to create a First Of Its Kind Rainbow Rating System.... Shill'Aliens!  

 

Top score is 6 "Outta This World - literally" of 6 is high score... Why not 5 or 10..... like normal people.... well SIX is a whole lot Sixier that 5 (get it).... and well Rainbow took some allergy meds in celebration of 2021 New Years last night and he forgot how to count up to 10... so... ummmm... yeh.. haha!

 

So in 2021 look for Rainbow To Rate video games in 2021 using his new Shill'Alien system....  Graphics and other stuff to follow... as Rainbow is recouping from a long long long night...

 

He did tell me the Astrosmash 2021 Sneak Peak Update received a 5.6 out of 6 Shill'Aliens... and then he passed out so I could not hear the reasoning behind the score other than maybe leavig room at the top for a Sixier game down the road... like a D&D or something..... or Magic 420 Game...

 

Ok ok... Happy New Year everyone!

 

TJ... and ~Rainbow  👽

Happy New Year to all the guys on the forum!  Beautiful new video Tommy, I watched it with my mouth open whispering "mamma mia!, figata!, bellissimo!" My wife, looking at my face, came to see what I was watching, so much was my excitement.  For your information, she said that she will surely play Astrosmash.  My 11-year-old son has already chosen his favorite spaceship.  Thanks for the video Tommy, we can't wait to see more.  Greetings from Italy!

Great video for Astrosmash.

But I was really curious to freeze the screen when they were choosing the game ...

image.png.bcc3e67a0a1bce16753c0baac073d1b5.png

Colossal Crash seems to be the new name for the game Side Swippers.

We have Dolphin Quest, Flying Circus, Back Tack Party, Snafoo and Safe Cracker ( I am happy to see it's still there. )

 

On the second screen, from the ACTION menu :

First we saw at the top of the screen, from the previous Menu (Sports) :

Darts !  That's cool !    We also have soccer !

 

And lower on the screen we have Auto Racing, Cats with Swords, Centipede, Fox & Forest and Earthworm Jim ! :)

So that are some titles that I was really happy to see ! :)

 

Thank you Tommy and John and Happy New Year !
