Hey everyone, I found about this site from "No Swear Gamer" on Youtube.  I'm a big fan of the 7800/2600 and just added a XEGS to my collection. I hope to make some friends as well as trades here :)

Greetings Malak! Glad you've found your way here =D - If you haven't already tried playing it or loading it up, Yoomp! is highly recommended for your XEGS.

Thanks everyone, I'm glad I found this place!

 

@Clint I've never heard of that title, all I have for my XEGS is Lode Runner and Dreadnought Factor but I'll check it out! 

 

The 8-bit line sure has its unique flavour of gaming, I'm glad I was finally able to buy one.

Atari could of done a lot more with the XEGS or better still, released a lot of cart based games for the 800XL/130XE as tape-based loading with NO turbo loaders possible, was a bloody nightmare for us poor saps here in the UK.

 
Waiting for things like Gauntlet, Red Max, Ace Of Aces to load took ages (anything upto 22 mins and high risk of Boot Error).
 
Whilst it was fantastic to see things like:Rescue On Fractalus, Air Ball, Fight Night etc put on cart, we sadly never saw the likes of:Commando, Deflektor, Midi Maze etc commercially released.
 
They would not of 'saved' any of the A8 formats, they would of been a shot in the arm for those of us who had the systems at the time.
 
Things like Commando and the 128K cart for Xenophobe, showed the hardware was far from finished with, but we were denied even these, sob.
