Tommy Tallarico - Fun Amico Conversations

Recommended Posts

I was digging through some crap I have hoarded up, and found a bunch of comics/doodles that my son and I (I helped with the spelling/verbiage) played around with a few years ago when he was 10 or so.  Found one based on a conversation/event that happened at a diner one day, and it reminded me of the recent interview with Tommy and Tony when they were talking about how the passion in their voices come across as angry, defensive, and aggressive (or something like that), so I thought I'd share in case you guys get the same giggles out of it.

I have officially hit "stalker territory" in searching this person out.  This game is fun, but definitely not casual.  Need Amico now.

First 2 minutes of this interview sounds like a Amico pitch.
Xbox Live Arcade was great. A definite win for Intellvision if it turns out to be true.

To Tommy and those interested.  Some of us on Facebook have been discussing a mass unboxing at launch. Obviously its hard to pull that off when people will likely get theirs at different times.  But maybe we could come up with a collection of people that can send in their unboxing and then could be used for a future ad. Open for input.

He did have an Intellivision, but I'm pretty sure he's married (if you're following the fiancee angle).  I do think it's one of the Xbox guys though. Just a hunch.  

 

What I'm hung up on is the phrasing about how he created one of the biggest video game products in the world.  "Products" is an odd word there.

You know... people do get divorced and start to date again, thus gaining a new fiancee over time. Old news isn't always updated by the minute.😇

I can take a photo & post it here. That would be the easiest way. Chances are we'd be in lockdown again in Corona Wave 2 by then, According to Dr. Fauci.

Wouldn't That Be Something?

Hahahha!! 

Damn... that would be epic!!  Imagine!  The guy who got Microsoft on the internet, created XBOX, XBOX Arcade, XBOX 360! (and Zune)

 

And although J is a friend... it's unfortunately not J.

:(

 

But keep guessing.... one of you got kinda close!!

I know, and when I suddenly found myself trying to figure that out, it's when I decided I was officially entering stalking territory. (I'm pretty sure he's still married)  So probably not him....

I'm tired of guessing. 

Just tell us. We deserve it! It's not like you can't afford to give us the news. It would mean so much because my dog is dying of coronavirus and my cat has rickets, and you not telling us is going to kill them and it will be all your fault! I hope you're happy!

Agreed! So is this a preview of what that 6th game is going to be like?  Some insane hybrid of Guess Who and internet scavenger hunt with a full on stalker vibe? 

 

System seller indeed!! 😁

Okay, regardless if he's not the current topic, when are you going to get J to join IE?  All the time spent looking him up today just further cemented how great a guy he is and how great a fit he would be to IE. Make it so!  🙂

I commented on Pete’s video regarding my concern with how the controls will work with asteroids since all of the translations I have played for Asteroids have had very poor controls since the arcade machine had a very specific configuration and layout that’s hard to work with on any other controller it seems. I don’t recall ever seeing a version that is even close to arcade perfect in terns of either graphics and sounds or controls  but I could be wrong. The crisp graphics and sounds were so cool !! I’m hoping for a close to arcade perfect port of the original (I think this is the only game so far where they showed footage of the original and reimagined version) along with the reimagined version. !!!! Asteroids Deluxe was very cool too 😎

I play asteroids through mame with an old four button game pad.  It works great.  With Amico, you have the disc for left/right rotate, touchscreen for fire, and the two shoulder buttons for thrust and hyperspace.  I'd put thrust on the touchscreen shoulder button, but I have a feeling they'll put it on the disc shoulder button.

 

Edit:

In their video they did not show the original arcade asteroids.  The Amico game has a phase where the rendering is vector graphics.

It's autobiographical. So is "The Boxer", where the chorus "lie-la-lie" is descriptive of what he's fighting.
