LOL, yeah that wouldn't hurt ;)

 

Here's a new INTV topic to appeal to more Intellivision gamers, who might not notice how hella cool it is playing games over here. 😄😎

 

Awesome!  Hope people come on over and play.

Just a quick couple of notes for Season 14 if I may. If the Season is 18 games again we are going to need to have some Season 13 repeats. Having the 2 or 3 that we had this year to me is NOT enough because we have a limited library here of great games. We had Space Armada, Auto Racing and Deadly Discs as the 3 repeats from the prior Season. I would say in an 18 game Season the repeat number should be a 3rd of the Season so 6 games to me should be repeated. And then ofcourse 12 new ones. I would say maybe also that in an 18 game Season there could be a 3rd of them containing Bonus games. Bonus games are super fun and to me it really keeps the competition at it's best. I would break Season 14 down like this. 

 

Game 1 - New game for Season 14

Game 2 - Repeat game from Season 13

Game 3 - New game (with bonus game) for Season 14

Game 4 - New game for Season 14

Game 5 - Repeat game from Season 13

Game 6 - New game (with bonus game) for Season 14

Game 7 - New game for Season 14

Game 8 - Repeat game from Season 13

Game 9 - New game (with bonus game) for Season 14

Game 10 - New game for Season 14

Game 11 - Repeat game from Season 13

Game 12 - New game (with bonus game) for Season 14

Game 13 - New game for Season 14

Game 14 - Repeat game from Season 13

Game 15 - New game (with bonus game) for Season 14

Game 16 - New game for Season 14

Game 17 - Repeat game from Season 13

Game 18 - New game (with bonus game) for Season 14 [Ending the Season with a bonus game would be super awesome especially if it's a close race]

 

I love the scoring system we have now (regular games and bonus games) as well as the bonus scoring for breaking / setting records. That all should stay 'as is' to me....

 

Lastly, I had fun filling in the scores for Jacob while he was sick. I would like to nominate myself as Jacob 2 whenever he needs the help. I will chip in with updates here and there where appropriate. I'm a wiz in Excel, am a huge numbers guy and I ran various fantasy football leagues over the years so this kind of thing is both fun and easy for me.... 👍

 

Anyway, just my two cents. 

 

Cheers,

Rickster8

I don’t know how many actual games came out on INTV, but I like the idea of not repeating games two seasons in a row.

You have too repeat some otherwise you end up playing Vectron and / or Mouse Trap lol 😜

It's not an inherently bad game, just a really bad port.  It makes the controls in Beauty and the Beast seem tight by comparison.

I would like an excuse to really give Vectron a try. The presentation of it is slick as hell, and the main thing that I hate is how reliant the gameplay is on the damn side buttons.

 

But still, I'd give it a go. 🙂

I played it lastnight for the first and hopefully the last time ever. The game is painfully bad and the controls are even worse..... Just another POS port from Coleco, ugh. That being said I do think Carnival is kind of fun so there is that. Not sure there’s any other Coleco port I’d endorse tho....

 Vectron could show up bonus style. but Mouse will likely not, and seems to be only be a fav of mine. The new gaming crew here cant stand it.

Surprisingly, the first 3 time Mouse was played at the HSC... not a single complaint on it. Kong was the one which got the wrath in past.

Thanks for jumping in, and since you've been holding the fort on updates, numbers and that.... let me know in PM which games you'd like to play for Game 12, and 13. :) I can start the headline for game 12.

I think as a bonus Vectron would probably be cool. Like Intelligentleman said I'd be willing to 'try' it, but the game we do not mention is a no for me, but who knows Biffman might wanna play it, HAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Just don’t think many people here have the homebrews in order to play them. And folks like myself that don’t play on emulation won’t want to go buy them for who knows how much money online. Some of them are very expensive.

Its actually my #1 fav Intellivision game! Addicting and not nearly as complicated as it seems at first.

Vectron or the game we do not mention? (edit) Yes Vectron... to me is like Tetris is to others, "JacobZu7zu7".

If Im feeling well soon, I think I can consider a seperate HSC for Intellivision homebrews, 10 games a season adjacent to the regular INTV HSC.

I'll play anything, so I'm fine with it making a return, I just reserve the right to make fun of it constantly.  🙂

I don’t even have Vectron and will not be buying it, so I’ll be a conscientious objector from the sidelines during that one.

I'm down for any game, honestly, but I'm not committed to buying games that I don't have AND also probably don't want, like you know what...

 

If it's a game I'd like to have anyway, I'm cool with plunking down a little change for it. Within reason.

 

In fact, I'd estimate I've purchased at least a half dozen games based on what we're doing in HSC.
