In the first episode of 7800 Ave. we celebrate Howard Scott Warshaw's Birthday by playing a few rounds of Yars' Revenge. 

On the show we'll play 7800 games and 2600 games because thats the beauty of the system - you can play both. Play some Atari today with your friends and family and watch out for that zorlon cannon.

The opening of your show is totally rad. There's no Saturday more classic than playing something like Yars Revenge with the family. Those were good scores too!    :atari_2600:  :yars_revenge:

Ohhh lovely stuff...

Fantastic to see you turn your talents to the 7800...

And yes, having your family so on board with this?

Genius move, makes for such a fantastic atmosphere right from the start.

Great title for show as well B-)

I like the way you host the show. You speak clearly but not overly professional or anything. No Swear Gamer is good at that too. Too many shows on youtube hosted by guys half-mumbling in their spare bedroom uhh and umming their way to 100,000 views. This feels upbeat and well made. And I like your family a lot too  :Howard_Scott_Warshaw:

Exactly.It's the very manner in which you put these shows together/way you come across..that really make them stand out and simply work.

 

 

These days it seems every proverbial Tom, Dick, Harry and Jane are out there trying to be something on YT and it's easy for the real wheat to get lost amongst so much digital chaff.

 

With 7800 Avenue etc, you present them in a way that grabs attention without the aim being that, if that makes sense?

 

It basically comes across as very warm, welcoming, a camera as it were on you, your family/friends simply having a blast with various Atari platforms...

 

Very much the 'Hey guys, we had great fun with this, thought we'd share..hope you enjoy them as well....' type vibe.

 

There's none of the i'm an expert on...i only put this video together due to ohhh, sooo many people asking to do it (cough) type crap, no speculation or made up claims.

 

Your clearly very at ease with the camera and come across so relaxed, entire thing feels natural and simply flows as a result.

 

I hope you/your family etc continue to do a lot more of these.

 

You've a lot of fans out there.

Hey Prof.  I have some amazing new toys coming from video 61 for the show, I will be showing them off and doing an unboxing... Which will lead into the next next video.  It will be a 2 player game, 2 players at the same time ;)

I feel like 7800 Avenue is going to be a hit :thumb: It's going to be like Jag Bar with guests and games? Is it only 7800?

That is correct, a guest will come over and we will play 7800 games.  But because the system plays 2600 as well I want to dip into those games too.  The Jag Bar episode of Warlords was a tryout for 7800 Ave.  The difference between The Jag Bar and 7800 Ave format wise is I will not have the section where we meet a guest at the bar then play,  7800 Ave will be just a guest joining me to play and getting right into the game and discussing our thoughts at the end.  Plus the set will look amazing - lots of brick walls, arcade games and neon.

Yeah its very cool, however Im trying to figure out what application its best for.  For example, I thought It might be really good for Xevious, its not.  Mrs Pac-Man, not bad, Pitfall 2 - nope...  But today I was playing it with BallBlazers and it was perfect.  The V61 Gripstick Joystick needs its own episode in order to break down what it is, what it does and what games its good for.  Im doing research on it... you know, playing lots of games with it, "research".
