Ah, the Atari 5200. It's basically the same hardware as the Atari 8-bit computers, repackaged as a gigantic, over-the-top, "Big is Better" gaming system. Consider it an Atari 400 with no keyboard, but with some very "interesting" controllers.
Love it or hate it, it's the perfect system to buy a multi-cart for. The original library is reasonably small -- easy to fit on a multi-cart. But what's really special here is the number of homebrews, and hacked 8-bit ROMS that really expand the library
Hi everyone. How do you all feel about multi-carts?
My thoughts are that they are a really convenient way to enjoy your classic gaming consoles, and experience the games the best way -- on REAL hardware.
These things come in a variety of formats. The very best have an SD card slot that allow you to place the entire library of games on a single memory card, and then enjoy the games via a menu driven interface. Other types include a set/built-in group of games on a cartridge, games selecta
I've been playing the Atari a lot lately. I got some games from a comic store that sells used games. My favorite so far has to be Robot Tank. The reason being, it is amazing in the aspect that it is 3Dish. I can't wait to get more games for the 2600. What's a game you guys recommend?
Hey guys. I think I'm going to utilize this blog platform on the forums. I'm going to post about game development and other gaming stuff (mostly Atari of course). I don't know. I'll see if this takes off.

I've been working on a excel spreadsheet of homebrew games that have been designed for the Atari VCS/2600 console. My list has surpassed over 500 titles and I've tried to log the information for each as:
ROM downloadable (yes/no)
Year (of release)
I've been working on this for 2+ years and still finding more titles almost everyday. I figured I would expand on the same idea as the titles ar
The next episode of Discovery Channel's MythBusters — the show in which rumors, urban legends and myths are tested with a scientific approach — will explore an aspect of video games that most first-person shooter fans take for granted. The question the show will attempt to answer is: "Is it possible for someone to lug around a half-dozen guns, grenades, a chainsaw and a bunch of health packs, while also fending off demons from Hell (or their closest equivalent)?

So, I really have no idea what I'm doing here. I guess I can just talk about whatever. I'd like to start with music. Video games have been my passion since 1980, but music has always been a close second for me. If you didn't gather from my username, I love Ween! I love every genre of music as long as it challenges me to accept something that the majority may not. One of my favorite things about playing the classic consoles is I don't have to listen to dialogue and can blast music! Remember being
