    📞 One Friday night as a young man I prank called Jack Tramiel. Had him on the phone for 3 mins. Not my proudest moment, but I should tell that story sometime.

    🎈 Working hard to keep the timeline positive lately. Lots of people feeling uncertain, Atari I/O will always be a positive place to escape to

    Even through a national pandemic, Atari survives. Bringing the fun and joy of new memories into homes across our great land for almost 50 years. Yars’ Revenge is one of my favorite games on the current Flashback consoles we found today at Sam’s Club. Who remembers The Walking Dead episode with Eugene playing Yars’ Revenge after the zombie apocalypse telling of the Yars’ attempt to exact revenge on the evil Qotile for the destruction of Razak IV?

    Just so you guys don't think I'm dead (because of no posts lately) -- although I'm sure @MaximumRD would respectfully report on it if I was, there's a new project I've been working on. Restoration of a 2003 Subaru. It's got a water leak (which makes it smell bad), and needs some engine work. But I'm having FUN with it. My father was an auto mechanic. It feels good to get the hands dirty. AND...I got a NEW JOB! I start next week. Should be lower stress. I hope.

    “We’ll be best friends forever, wont we, Luigi?” The greatest stories always begin with humble beginnings. This is one of the most prized items from my collection. All great adventures have to begin somewhere. Mario & Luigi started their adventures together here in these socketed EPROMS. Not many people in this world get to say they have a “prototype Mario” anything, for any system. How do I even have this? It should be in the Smithsonian. I count myself among the very fortunate few to have something this special, where it all began.

    RE: N64 😎 I am a huge Resident Evil games fan so of course even though my first experience of it was on Playstation I simply HAD to own a original N64 cart as shown. It's just loose cart and I have not played it in years (Hope it still saves?) but it is one of only a handful of original N64 carts I still own as I use my Everdrive mostly. Still, look forward to trying it out again soon, what they achieved on a N64 cart was impressive. 😍

    🤖 The Atari 7800 was made to play our favorite arcade games like Robotron: 2084. It can push a ton of sprites all over the screen with rarely any slowdown or flicker. It’s an overlooked treasure that’s capable of so much more than you might think. What are your favorite arcade games on home systems?

    📖 Who loves comic books? Collecting is about enjoying every part of the game - the gameplay, the artwork, flipping through the instruction manual and diving into the story and the world of the game. Atari was my introduction to comics, some of my favorite Atari games come with DC Comics ashcans inside.

    🏸 Super Breakout may be “the most Atari” of Atari games. There’s beauty in its simplicity. A ball & paddle smashing bricks. The analog feel of a good set of paddle controllers smoothly moving that paddle across the screen delivers a hand/eye connection to the game unlike any other.

    I've been doing 6502 programming on the Atari 8-bit computers since Mac/65 on the 80s. Today its Eclipse/WUDSN/Mads and emulators on linux. In the later 80s and 90s I was doing computer animation, desktop publishing, and video production on Amigas. Some programming, too, but by then I was working full time, so recreational programming was cut down quite a bit. I have a full time job managing a group of programmers working on financial processing systems written in C and running on linux. Chances are if you've used a gift card I've made it a happy experience for you. (If it wasn't I can refer you to some competitors ) When I have time I work on random graphics project and games, or port things from other platforms to the Atari 8-bit computers. Various tutorials from Oldskoolcoder and GRay Defender have been my past porting victims. https://github.com/kenjennings https://www.youtube.com/user/SyntheToonz (No, I've never been on Jeopardy!)

    🖖 Science fiction has always been the frontier for legitimate future predictions. Technology is what changes us more than anything else. Imagining what could be created, and what the effects are on culture and behavior, thats where genuine insight is found.

    After a few non-gaming days & a bit of clean-up, I have completed my feature video on Greg Sakundiak and his perfect Pac-Man arcade run. This video posed some unique challenges for me as I usually edit highlight/shoutout videos for my show. Nonetheless, this was a lot of fun to create. Enjoy!

    🍄 I think the Mario character looks better in the 2600 version than in the NES. He's bigger, he has more detail. It's a less iconic sprite but he's big and has a larger Bonk-esq head.

    🤔 TV connections and Control Pads for 2-Players would’ve stepped up the Lynx’s style to a true game system! And Atari would’ve had a true home console to fight in the 16-Bit wars! I have this theory that most handheld gaming wasn’t done walking around with a portable in your pocket. I think the best handheld gaming was done at home, lying on the floor with snacks and a movie playing on the tv in the background on a cozy Saturday afternoon. Or on long car rides during summer road trips, chilling out in the back seat with a drink, and holding it comfortably in your lap. So how much did “pocket size” really matter? Lynx and Switch share a similar take on portable gaming, the idea of a full-blown game system portable enough to stuff into your bag and take with you anywhere. GameBoy came out at about the same time as Lynx, but they had two different ideas of what a portable game system should be. GameBoy became popular using the WalkMan approach of being tiny, simple, and sorta inexpensive. Lynx couldn’t fit into your pocket as easily, but offered more in terms of graphics and a full-color screen.

    👽 There’s a lot of hate for E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and yet so many of us have wonderful memories of growing up playing this game. Nothing has left its mark on the legacy of Atari quite like E.T. It may not be the top 2600 game, but it has a lot of heart.

    🚘 What’s your favorite thing to bring with you on a summer road trip? Atari Lynx has a small game library, but many of the games are really good! Once things return to normal this will be my 31st summer bringing the Lynx on my summer road trip. I do more driving than riding in the back seat these days, but summer wouldn’t feel complete without rainy afternoons playing California Games, RoadBlasters, Ninja Gaiden or Blue Lightning.

    I'll miss Robert Forster. What a presence. Just watched him in El Camino tonight, then saw on my phone he passed away from cancer. Was brilliant in Twin Peaks and Jackie Brown. One of my favorite actors, I'm sad he's gone.

    Oh guys, I'm feeling so overwhelmed at work lately. Please forgive me for venting, but it's gotten so difficult. Do more with less. I just feel so bad that I can't seem to keep up.

    RickR has a modern console for once. I picked up a used 3ds today. I'll admit, the purple color was a selling point.
