  3. I made my Demon Attack video a little late for the contest, so I didn't post it here, but I've compared emulation to OG Hardware again for this Video Pinball challenge.....and let's just say, there is NO comparison between the two... 1,413,706

  4. Q*bert (A/A): 58,600 Improvement. Really good port but frustrating when coily reaches near the top of pyramid and when you jump on the disk he waits for you at the top cube to hit you.

  6. Video Pinball 3A - 10,111,115 The first objective should always be to get the extra ball. Second, clear the diamonds to boost the bumper values to 900. Third, spam the bonus lane. Pardon the cat.

    Got One!!

    I usually always miss out on presales for popular items but I’m buying the lede. The most amazing thing about this is that I somehow managed to keep a $400 gift card balance on Amazon for over a year, specifically for this purpose. I still have time to increase that amount & have it fully paid for by shipping time. This will be my first launch console since the Dreamcast. I’m not overly excited for this as I was for the DC but I’m sure that will change as launch day approaches.

  8. I’d like to share something very special with you guys. This is an Atari Strategy Guide I began writing in 6th Grade. It's all true. Atari I/O started on paper! I was 11 years old when I made this. If you flip through the pages of the Strategy Guide and squint hard enough, you’ll recognize similarities with our Atari I/O Blog posts, particularly the game reviews that I do with BTB. I thought you guys might think this is cool to see. I’ve been talking with @btbfilms76, @Atari Creep and @Gianna about my days collecting Atari games in the early '90s, how some of the most interesting st

  14. Congratulations RickR! Congratulations to @RickR on his big win! Rick has become our second MAME Champion! We improved our turnout from our previous MAME Squad Challenge, nearly doubling last Squad Challenge's numbers. I know emulation can be tricky for some, and I want to thank everyone for doing whatever you had to do to participate! Once again, there was some help from friendly faces in the forums to help get people get set up and going on MAME, and it's always nice to see our community help each other out. @RickR is our champion for this Squad Challenge and the top spot in

  15. 33202 I didn't have any emulators set up on my computer, so I was going to pass on the challenges this month, but after seeing atarigames Instagram post about those paddle controllers I wanted to get an entry in (Hey BTB, enter me to win!). Was about to start figuring out an emulator and then remembered it was actually on my Arcade 1Up lol. It's definitely my least played game on here, so this is a cool reason to get into it!

    Do you have any pets?

    I thought this would be a nice topic for a conversation starter 😊 I have a long haired dachshund named Sally who is 7. She is very shy yet super protective. She loves going for car rides, boat rides, and getting occasional Puppacinos from Starbucks (whipped cream in a small cup). 🙂 Sally is so sweet and I don't know what I would do without her! If you have pets, share their pics and a little about them below!

  19. Congratulations Sabertooth! Congratulations to @Sabertooth for becoming our Wrecking Crew Champion! I hope everyone here had a great time discovering Wrecking Crew on NES and how to win at this game. I've been curious about Wrecking Crew for years, but never understood the game until now. It just felt like a smash-em-up game of destruction. No jump, no Princess, no Donkey Kong, why are we even here? Turns out it's an amazing puzzle-platformer with some charm. I played halfway through this challenge before I even figured out how the doors worked! I'm glad this game turned out to be

  20. Great choice @Justin. This is going to be fun! Here's a picture of my boxed copy (and the extra copy I have that I think I'm trading to @HDN) Something interesting I just noticed is that it has an "N" sticker on the top (indicating NTSC I assume). Weird! One more interesting story about 2600 Galaxian...it's one of the games that does not work with the Atari Flashback 2. When I did the cartridge port mod on a FB2, guess which game I grabbed to test with? Yep. Galaxian! I pulled my hair out a bit before I figured maybe the game was incompatible.

  21. Congratulations Racers! Congratulations to everyone who joined in the big race!! We had our BIGGEST TURNOUT EVER for this Grand Prix! Absolutely incredible! Seaside was the perfect track to race, difficult enough to provide tremendous challenge to us adult players but still fun to play. One of the points of criticism I see the Atari 7800 receive fairly often is that it came with Pole Position II as its pack-in. I thought this was a really fun game. I hope you did too! I came in 1st Place to take the top spot on the podium, crossing the finish line with a high score of 73,500.

  22. E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial for Atari 2600 is not the worst game ever made, that's just something people like to say. @GoldenGalaxiesGaming just posted a brilliant new video taking us on an Atari E.T. playthrough, showing: HOW to play the game What the symbols mean How to get E.T. home How to get a high score and explaining why E.T. is NOT the worst game ever. I'm such a strong believer in this, I'm considering pinning this topic to the top of the Atari 2600 Forum.

  26. A little background on my physical gaming setup... gaming has been a retrofit into existing living spaces. I have gaming areas in two places in the house. First, a large room upstairs started out as the toy room for kids and my library. Now, half of the room is used for home theater with a very large old sofa in front of the 65" 4K TV and audio equipment. Modern consoles and some older ones are hooked up to this TV. I'll share photos in the future. Second, in a small corner of the office/den on the main floor, I've set up a 27" CRT TV with 2600, 5200, 7800, and PS2. Most of my Atari 8-bit

I've ordered most of the patches offered in the second link. The Bridge patch was posted today, and I ordered it as well.

  33. Ok, I jumped on the bandwagon and got myself a Jaguar a few minutes ago. I'd been thinking of getting one for a while, and the squad challenge gave me excuse reason to add another Atari console to the stable. I picked it up from a local gamer/seller.

  36. 4995 - First score so far. Playing on a 2600 with a genesis controller. First time playing Demon Attack on the 2600. Picked up a copy at a local game store today after seeing the next challenge. Always wanted to check it out since I really like the Intellivision version.

  37. 6,365 for a start. I love Demon Attack but I've never been great at it. Imagic were the second group of Atari wizkids to go it alone after the exodus of the Activision crew. As a development house, they are just behind Activision and GCC in terms of quality output. Plus those boxes!!!

  39. I got 43,950 and maybe stage 15 but I'm going for 50K. Ships are worth more points in flight but the main thing is to shoot the emissaries first, the purple ones. And you can sort of steer the direction they move by positioning yourself so they fly back towards you. Once you get rid of them the green ships are easy and slow moving. When you see the red escorts shoot them first followed by the white flagship. It's not easy to do but it gives you 800 points. I really focus more on the purple guys then shoot everything else whether it's in flight or not.

    Yaay! It's here!

    I finally got my 7800 today. It's a bit disappointing that it only came with Pole Position II because they said they'd put a few games with it, but I don't really mind. I like PP2 quite a bit. I wish I had Food Fight though. I also like the ProLine controllers. I tested them with a few games. It worked good with PP2 and Pac-Man, but not so good with Defender and Tunnel Runner.

  43. Christmas is the furry child I have now. She is my wife's service animal when we are out and about but pretty much my child when we are home. Nothing like Daisy but very unique in her own ways. Never shy...always wants the first to greet and get attention. She makes her presence known. This is the first day we got her and ... \ … 9 years later. She sleeps with me in "my" bed. Yes...that's the same dog. LOL. Love her dearly. The only thing she doesn't like is storms.

    I no longer have dogs (though I love them) but I do have several other pets. Canaries, a parrolet, fish and even hermit crabs. 🙂
