    The guys from ChampGames are currently working on an amazing home port of Galaga for the Atari 2600. I know NSG posted about it but this deserves its own thread. Head to the thread in AA to get the demo binary: Champ Games - Galaga 2600

    XBOX E3 Highlights

    Once a year one of the largest gaming events sets the stage of what's to come. And XBOX has always put on a good showing with exclusives, releases of popular game franchises, XBOX firsts and much more. This year the concept behind XBOX's E3 show seems to be more about finally bridging the gap between console and PC gamers. But more on that later. Here are the highlights I found most interesting ... so far. Sega is bringing one of the most popular RPG franchises of all time to the XBOX One console and PC. Phantasy Star originally started on the Master System decades ago and has since been declared one of Japan's best role playing games for a lot of reasons. And most RPGs today got their influence from Sega's RPG franchise. Unlike Phantasy Star releases before it, Phantasy Star Online 2 on XBOX One is getting released first in the western part of the world. Offering cross-platform gaming between XBOX One and PC gamers Phantasy Star Online 2 looks to be setting the stage and standards for other RPGs to follow sometime in 2020. Forza has been XBOX's response to PlayStation's Gran Turismo series since the original XBOX console. It has since reached seven Motorsport releases and spawned four Horizon releases. Considered one of the best simulated racing/driving games Forza Horizon 4 is getting a rather unusual expansion pack. Forza and Lego have teamed up to offer the Forza Horizon experience on a Lego brick level. Next week, Forza Horizon 4 gets a Lego expansion pack called Lego Speed Champions. What impressed me about this was what was presented on XBOX's E3 stage during the expansion reveal. Check out this image below. That, my friends, is a life-size replica of a McClaren Senna that made it's debut appearance during the Forza Horizon 4 expansion pack revealing with working lights and doors open. That's some impressive work. Halo is coming back but not how you would expect. Along with game releases XBOX revealed a new console code named Project Scarlett. A video introducing the starts of Halo Infinite was shown. A few more game trailers and then the new console was mentioned. The new XBOX is slated for a holiday 2020 release with Halo Infinite being released with it. While there may not be a new Halo coming to XBOX One there is one coming next year for those that plan to pick up the new XBOX next year. The one reveal that I was waiting on the most was Gearbox's Borderlands 3 showing which showed more game play footage. Revealed at the end of the trailer was final proof that turned a rumor into a reality. Owners of Borderlands 2 (Steam) and Borderlands the Handsome Jack Collection (XBOX/PS) received a new DLC expansion called "Commander Lilith & the Fight for Sanctuary" that ties the story line between Borderlands 2 and the upcoming Borderlands 3 game. This expansion DLC is available for free from now (June 9) until July 8. The expansion includes a new weapon tier beyond Legendary and the character level cap has been upped to 80. New players to Borderlands 2 will automatically be bumped up to level 30 to enjoy the new DLC. Also, XBOX One owners can now get Borderlands Handsome Jack Collection for free. What better time to dig into the Borderlands series than now? One thing that XBOX has been committed to for a while now is creating a friendly online gaming experience no matter how or what you play whether it be a computer game or on an XBOX console. XBOX Game Pass is XBOX's way of getting to play games without having to pay for each game. Similar to how Netflix relates to movies Game Pass allows XBOX owners to download and play over 100 games through a subscription service. If you like the game and wish to purchase it while it part of the Game Pass service you can at a discounted price. This year at E3, Game Pass is now available for Windows PC so PC and XBOX gamers can play together in a cross platform atmosphere. $15 per month nets a Live Gold, XBOX Game Pass, and XBOX Game Pass for Windows all in one package deal. Not a bad price considering just the Game Pass alone on XBOX is $10 a month. Other highlights include a new Minecraft spin-off called Minecraft Dungeons. From what footage I watched it seemed like a Diablo-style game done in the art style of Minecraft. Up to 4 players will be able to join a co-op and go exploring. For those that like scary games there was footage shown on a new game called Blair Witch. Too scary for me. And Keanu Reeves made an appearance to showcase a game he is in called Cyberpunk 2077 which looked like a lot of fun! Those were my favorite highlights of E3 on June 9th. If you watched it be sure to share your favorite highlights as I would love to hear your thoughts and favorites about what was shown.

    It is no secret at all that one of my favorite franchises is the Terminator Flicks. NOTHING and I mean NOTHING will ever beat the original no matter how much people try to tell me T2 is a better film. The original had everything. SciFi, action, a bit of noir and a hint of the slasher element from horror films of the time. Most important the film had the greatest villain (next to Darth Vader) in cinematic history, Cyberdine Systems 800 series Terminator model 1 0 1. A cybernetic organism with living tissue over a hyperalloy endoskeleton. And though it is the iconic metal skeleton that draws me to the character, the "Tech Noir" look will forever be the most iconic look for the Terminator for me. For me Arnold in the gray M65 jacket lined in chains and metal studs, gray pants and black engineer boots will always be what comes to mind first when I think of the Terminator. But what completes that look in my mind is the weapon most associated with that look, the .45 Long Slide with laser sighting and it was just a matter of time that I would seek to recreate that iconic weapon. It all starts here in this box. Most of the parts need to make this a reality are within. The real weapon is based off of Colts famous model 1911 .45 pistol. My prop replica starts with this.... A cheap but somewhat accurate toy of a 1911 from eBay. And a pile of 3D printed parts designed and created by my buddy Mike of IRMAO Custom Models First task is to make the barrel/slide a few inches longer. Mike printed an extension and sleeve to help guide it in the right place. Next is the laser sighting. The only part Mike was unable to design and print was the bracket that attaches the sight to the gun itself. I found and printed a 1:1 image of the bracket on paper and 1 on heavy card stock to use as a template. This is the only part I will need to fabricate and I am ok with that. One of my favorite parts of any build is finding things in the world that have a "look" and repurpose it for my needs. I decided to go with this... If you look at the bracket you will see the left grip is part of the assembly. I then looked at a window scraper and thought it had the right "look" for my needs. It is going to take a bid of cutting, grinding, epoxy putty and some resin to work it out but in the end, I think this should work just fine... Thanks so much for having a look at the first steps in this journey and I hope you will be back to watch it all unfold. Chris The Atari Creep

    Whoa! This changes things a LOT. Konami? Is there any more information than the video? I hope Konami puts some their own titles on this console. If it doesn't have Salamander/Life Force and Gradius II I will be disappointed. I'd still be interested in this. I just hope it doesn't disappoint like PlayStation did.

    XBOX E3 Highlights

    Great write-up!! Did you know that the $1 deal for Game Pass Ultimate is even better than it looks? Thanks to Microsoft Rewards, I had paid for my Gold subscription through April of 2021. When I signed up for the GP Ultimate for $1, it converted my existing Gold subscription to Ultimate (I never had signed up for Game Pass) and I don't get charged again for nearly 2 years.

    Definitely not. I captures that nostalgic feel perfectly. I can totally picture you walking around there 30 years ago walking through those same doors.

    New Atari 2600 Homebrew - Galaga!

    It is really awesome. Unbelievable really. If this came out back in the 80's, we would have all been amazed. This is one title I will purchase at PRGE when it's available.

    I'm just going to put this right out there without any introduction (I'll save that for another related article) and pick the 10 games I play most on the 7800 in the small collection I have which is now at 16 games. We start with number 10. 10. Centipede Mom's favorite...but on the 5200. She tried playing the 7800 version when I got the system and a few games for Christmas around 1990. I have to admit that even though it gets more play time than others it doesn't quite capture everything I enjoy about the 5200 version. Never the less the 7800 Centipede is a rock-solid title full of all the bug killing envy anyone would wish to do. It's very colorful, sounds are OK, controls are done well. Visuals are a bit different than the 5200 version but once the game play starts the difference is quickly overlooked. And Spidey still needs to go decaf. 9. Dark Chambers Dark Chambers was Atari's attempt at making a Gauntlet clone without having to pay for a license. That's my opinionated theory about Dark Chambers. This adventure game features levels that are lettered from A to Z giving the game over 20 levels to explore and conquer. Graphics look good, sounds are appropriate, levels are colorful, controls are solid, and the enemies can be a handful. Along the way the player gets to pick up items to help maintain health, increase weapon power, and a few other things. No 7800 player should be without this game in their library. This game is also on the 2600 and XEGS/A8 computers. 8. Choplifter I have to admit that my first encounter with Choplifter was with Sega's remake of the game for its Master System. When I played Choplifter on the 7800 for the first time a few years ago I was taken by surprise how much more basic the game was. But this is the way the game was originally designed and not the way Sega did it. This game can be challenging and unforgiving to those who don't know what to expect. Very colorful, sounds are awesome, controls are very responsive. Watch out for those tanks while rescuing people, though, as they can take you down in no time. 7. Xevious Xevious was originally not one of my favorites mainly because I had no clue what I was suppose to do or if there was an end to it. But the more I played it the more I enjoyed the game. And the only way I ever played the game was on the 7800. Sounds are really good with great control options and visuals are impressive. It's hard for me to not spend hours on this game once I decide I want to play it. The only downfall is if the standard 7800 controller is the only controller option available Xevious can cause cramps in a matter of minutes. For this game I recommend a game pad of some sort or even splurge on the 7800's EuroPad controller. Those are way better options for this game than what the 7800 came with in the USA. 6. Robotron: 2084 I'm just going to call it Robotron for short. Robotron remains the one game on the system that can showcase its graphical power. While it is a simple game there is so much going on that it can be considered a chaotic madhouse. Seriously, there's all kinds of things going on to distract the player and yet the 7800 never slows down or breaks a sweat. It is games like this that made the 7800 different from the other consoles of the time. Sounds, graphics, and controls are spot-on in my opinion. Great game. Pick it up if found. 5. Food Fight Food Fight was one I questioned as soon as I unwrapped it that Christmas morning I got a 7800. It was the last one I tried but easily became a favorite. It would have had a lot more game play if not for the hand cramps caused by the standard 7800 controllers. Even then it remains hard to put down. There's something fun about throwing food at chefs. It never gets old. And if a round is played great the game treats with an instant replay. The only game I know to do this. I've also noticed that after playing a game it will use that instant replay for a demonstration until the system is turned off. Good graphics, sounds, and controls are good. 4. Commando Out of the NES and 7800 versions of this game I prefer the 7800. It simply performs better in my opinion. It's also seems a bit easier to play than the NES version. Graphics and sounds are amazing and the controls are responsive. If there was a game made to showcase how much better the 7800 could be over the NES I would put this game on that list. If this is missing from a 7800 player's game library keep an eye out for it. This one should not be missed. 3. Galaga Some may question this game being high on this list but this is one of the most-played games on my 7800. This was also the first game I tried that Christmas morning I unwrapped a 7800. I prefer Galaxian over Galaga but I enjoy this game the most on the 7800. The game play starts out easy but after awhile the game really speeds up which increases the challenge factor. Graphics are good, sounds are OK, controls are good. A solid 7800 title no 7800 owner should be without. This is a common title so it should be easy to find. 2. Ms. Pac-Man Out of all of the ports of the queen of video games I've played the 7800 port of Ms. Pac-Man is probably the only one that is the closest to the arcade. The sounds are amazing considering they are coming from the 2-channel limitations of TIA, even surpassing the same game on the 2600. The colors are right, the graphics are detailed, the ghost AI is spot-on, and the speed is just right. This is the only title on the 7800 I can enjoy playing using the standard 7800 controller without much fatigue. And the most played game on my 7800 is ... (drum roll)... 1. Asteroids Asteroids on the 7800 is the most played game in my library. I just can't get enough of those 3D-like boulders and the small space sounds that randomly call out. And lots of memories playing this game on two-player with a friend where we would just fly around in every direction to see how long we could last without shooting anything. We would always laugh out loud when we would collide with an asteroid flying full speed. Who said you had to play by the rules? I absolutely love the graphics and sounds in this game and it is a 40-plus year old concept that never gets old. There's just something mesmerizing about blowing up asteroids and alien saucers. And that ends my top 10 7800 games. I like every game I have for the 7800 but these are the ones I go to the most. I'm not big on Donkey Kong or his son and I'm not that interested in sports although I find Hat Trick a fun, if not supped up, version of Pong even if it is suppose to be hockey. And Ballblazer? A LOT of fun with that game...I simply lack that game in my library. I'm sure as I acquire more games for the system that what gets played the most may change. But no matter what when I think about the 7800 I immediately think about Asteroids.
