Looking forward to this one! I love CV DK almost as much as the NES version, and this gives me a great reason to fire it up!

I was hoping for a Coleco for Christmas. Got a PS4 instead. It's awesome, but I really wanted a Coleco. Have fun!

I only have a Coleco FB and it doesn't have the Nintendo licensed titles.  That is one of the main issues with both the Coleco and Intellivision units.  The controllers are cool and the emulation is good, but no DK on the Colecovision FB and no BurgerTime! on the INTV?!!!  Crazy. 

 

What do you folks use for CV emulation?

Good luck y'all. I will sit this one out. Never been a fan of Donkey Kong other than Donkey Kong Country on the SNES.

Burgertime, Lock N Chase, and the Imagic titles are the main reason I asked my wife for a real INTV for Xmas a while ago.
