    Score: 34,810 With the assistance of a 16 oz. can of Orange Fanta. I like how this game keeps adding new enemy types as you progress. Even about this far into the game, they reveal a new one: little spinning squares that zip across the screen and hunt you down.

    That'll do it! When I was a kid I was in Boy Scouts (2nd grade) and our Den Leader was my friend Tim's mom, so we'd end up over at Tim's house playing video games all Saturday morning. One of the other Dad's owned a McDonald's in town and sponsored us, usually with a cooler full of Orange Fanta. We always called it 'Bug Juice'. 🥤

    Keep or sell super valuable games?

    I though of another factor: age. I turned 50 last year. That, coupled with cleaning out my father''s estate, and also having a few friends pass away really got me into thinking about minimalizing.

    I'll make a post in the "For Sale" forum as I make a pile of stuff to sell to give you all a chance to buy before I go to ebay.

    Keep or sell super valuable games?

    I think a fun question that should be asked is what is the one super valuable classic gaming item you would keep?

    Keep or sell super valuable games?

    While I don't have any valuable games, I HAVE been in this kind of position with another type of collectible. I like to collect a variety of things besides video games. (In fact, I probably collect too many things, but that's another story...) I'm an avid reader, and I like to collect antique books. Quite a few years ago I got my hands on an interesting old book called "Ver Beck's Book of Bears." Now, I didn't think too much about it. It had really nice illustrations, was a pretty old book, but didn't seem too special. A few years ago, though, I got curious and decided to look it up online. Low and behold it turned out to be an exceedingly rare volume worth up to $400 or more. That's a good deal of money for a book. I like it far too much to sell, though. It has more value to me than the money. I imagine if I found any truly rare, valuable video games, it would be a similar case, and depend entirely on whether I like the game more than the money.

    Fatal Run for Atari 7800

    I think that Fatal Run should have been full-blown RoadBlasters. RoadBlasters was well known in the arcades and I love it in the arcades. The A7800 would have probably had quite enough horsepower to create a decent 8-bit port that would have blown the NES version away. It was not meant to be, I guess. Fatal Run, to me, was more a road quest game. You had an agenda, you had a mission to save people, it sounds like a quest to me. I don't see Fatal Run as arcade-like, but I did like it to a degree. I have Fatal Run for the A7800 and RoadBlasters for the Lynx. Even the Lynx version of RoadBlasters is very well done. For as small as the game is for the Lynx, it is very close to the arcade version. The A7800 is a great and advanced system for an 8-bit CPU. It could handle it. I just do not understand why it was scaled down so much. Cost, I guess. The management at Atari at the time loved cutting corners for cost. Thanks for letting me share.

    My NES loose cart collection! Join me in some rambling and memories. MaximumRD Published on Jan 9, 2019 YES technically not my first video of 2019 as I say in the video BUT my first "REAL" video as far as I am concerned 😜Just a look at my NES loose cart collection, some memories rambling all off the cuff. PLEASE enjoy and comment on any titles YOU particularly enjoyed or despised or have a interesting history of. Also as always feel free to correct any info, these are fading memories for me and I only go by what I recall off the top of my head.

    Fatal Run for Atari 7800

    Re: Arcade games being worn out: Too true. It's funny; I was still way into arcade games in the late 80s/early 90s when they were considered passe. It took me a while to warm up to console-style games where you'd have to really spend time exploring them. To me, arcade games were the real deal that consoles could only hope to imitate, and it wasn't until later that I started really appreciating console titles for what they were.

    Maybe I will try to swap the cap if I can find one down the line. Like you, in all my years I have had VERY few carts go dead. Thanks for the advice bro!!!!

    BTW, I learned of some new games I had not seen before with the book. That was cool.

    New Addition

    The replacement has arrived. And I am very impressed. Needs some minor cleaning. Fully loaded 1040 STE. I'm still in shock.

    Has my cart split its mortal coil???

    Ah ok. Looking at the pic I wonder if that cap at C1 might be dead and if so that would cause these issues. I suppose if one had a similarly rated cap lying around a simple swap would be easy enough just for the heck of it. I don't really see any bad traces on the board, at least nothing that would prevent it from working. Probably simply a dead rom unfortunately. I've had very few dead carts in the 26 years I've been collecting but it does happen. I find it mostly with Activision carts. Just last year I lost a Keystone Kapers cart AND Riot chip at the same time when I turned on a 2600 I was working on that got zapped by static electricity. I heard a small pop. I've since bought an anti static wrist strap. Lesson learned

    As for goals, I haven't really had any for a few years now. I'll be getting the Phoenix this year so I'm on a bit of a Colecovision run right now. I've been getting more into building and using older DOS based 386, 486, or Pentium 1 PC's. Currently waiting for an IDE to SD card adapter because I'm not having any luck with 30+ year old IDE drives working properly. Bad sectors seem to be multiplying Other than that it's probably homebrews, mostly for the Atari systems but I'd buy them for any system I own if they're good games and if they're arcade ports, especially ones never released or woefully underrepresented on classic consoles then I'm definitely on board. And probably a few PS4 games. There's a new Star Wars and I believe Crash Racing coming out this year so I'll be getting those and a few others. Can't seem to find Atari Classics Flashback 3 for the PS4 in physical copy here in Canada which is weird. No one has any of the 3 volumes actually. Also may spend some money building up my Steam and GOG library. Some great stuff there. Love those big sales they have
