  2. Once the vaccine is out, yes. I enjoy going to the movie theater but mainly to watch movies on the IMAX screen. I have an AMC with an IMAX screen close to my house. Otherwise, I just enjoy the movies on my 65" TV with the 1000 Watt surround sound system. 🙂

    hi rickr, the c-64 had a lot of games. but the atari's were almost always better to play, and yes, the c-64 drive was a relic compared to a 1050. plus atari had a huge edge wise with their cart port compared to the c-64. what i like is comparing the same game on different systems. it makes collecting even funner! lance www.atarisales.com

  4. Me too 😄 Although we are still in the pandemic, I did go to Universal, but they took everything very seriously. Also, restaurants. Have you been to any yet? I've gone out maybe 3-4 times since they reopened here in May and at each place the tables were spread out very far. It is nice not being jam packed close to people and being able to have a lot of space!

  5. I'm going to say that when this horrid pandemic is over and there is a vaccine, I plan on doing EVERYTHING. Movies? Yes. Restaurants? Every night. Theme parks? You betcha. If I ever make it any or your areas, I'll buy you a beverage of your choice 🙂

  6. After Burner is a great one!! How did I forget After Burner?! I had a blast playing the full-size cockpit After Burner in the arcade. After Burner on Sega Master System was my go-to jet fighter game until I started playing Blue Lightning on Atari Lynx. Those games were a lot of fun! Global Defense was a fun game too, very challenging! I remember thinking it was going to be like Missile Command and Liberator but that wasn't the case. Pretty cool. Always remembered the opening screen of the missile striking the twin towers.

  9. Will you be going to the movies when this is all over, or staying in and streaming? What will it take to get you back into theaters? So much has changed not only since the virus. I was never that big into going to the movies. I always thought they could be a bit gross with it being dark and difficult to see the aisles and seats. Just thinking about what I could be sitting on and around is a bit gross to me. A few theaters around my town have been remodeled and now have big leather reclining seats. I noticed a theater near me that's been around since 2007 has closed for good since the vir

    hi every one, i used to collect a lot in the gaming world. but settled strictly on atari by the late 1980's, early 1990's when i figured out room wise, i was going to be in trouble. so i still love getting something atari related that i do not have. but one thing that really excites me is when i am able to collect every version of a game that was released on various atari platforms, like dark chamber, it came out on the 2600, 7800, and the XEGS. i recenetly was posting comparisons between 7800 games and the XEGS, showing the differences in the games. one thing that

  12. Sega Master System was one of those "not the NES" 8-Bit systems that I would get really into, especially as the years went on. My interest would come in waves, seems like every spring I get into the mood for Master System. It didn't have the library that the NES did, but it had a lot of cool games. I was fortunate to enjoy a handful of these awesome titles while I was growing up. Here are a few of my favorites in no particular order. What are some of your favorites?

    hi everyone, atari screwed up when they did not make the ports of 400/800 games a tad bit different on the 5200 than the 8-bit versions. just look at mario bros. for the 2600, 5200, 7800 and XEGM, what a difference all four are. they are a must to own if you are a true collector. lance www.atarisales.com

    hi, yes atari really screwed up on the 5200. and they should have tweaked the games a bit to be different than the 8-bit versions. its why the 7800 was a hit, the games were different from the 8-bit and 5200 versions. lance www.atarisales.com

  15. PS - the last movie I went to was "Onward" with my 10 year old niece. I think it was early March. Right before this mess started. It was a good movie -- I'm a huge Pixar fan.

  16. I've only done take-out at restaurants since this started. I have not gone inside to sit and eat. Isn't that awful? On the bright side, we've been doing a lot of cooking of new recipes and it's fun to try new things. But on the other hand, it gets tiring, as I'm sure it is for everyone. We do take-out maybe once or twice a week. I try to tip as much as possible even with the take-out and support our local businesses. I know there will eventually be a vaccine, but I sure wish everyone would wear a mask while out in public. I believe if that occurred, I've heard the virus would be gone i

    I like doing this exact thing too! It all started when I was a teenager. I had an Atari 800XL, and most of my friends had a Commodore 64. There were many games common on both systems. I used to get made fun of a lot because the Atari versions of various games had slightly worse graphics and sound. I think it's fair to say that the C64 has smaller and more detailed sprites than the PM graphics of the Atari. But the Atari versions were usually a lot faster and more colorful. I also noticed right away how much of a dog that C64 disk drive was. SLOW! And the Atari computer has a lot

    I have every major Atari game system released, over 400 games, and a MegaSTE computer. I agree about the ports of certain game for certain systems. There have been ST ports for the Jaguar. But, they look exactly like the ST versions. That is because they are. The A5200 was really a 400/800 Atari computer. The carts were bigger for the A5200 to show that they were set apart from other systems at the time. It did not fare well because they were too incompatible for the other Atari system at the time, the A2600. I think they should have made the cart port the same size as the A2600, which is some

    Coolest Atari Game?

    hi, rickr, that is the one that changed my perception of gaming. after space invaders, i had a hard time playing the early games, they seemed to easy and lacked the visuals and the experience of space invaders, which opened up my mind to use my imagination, asteroids really did that trick for me also, then pitfall, crystal castles were all ground breaking for me. getaway on the 8-bit was a real imagination creator, food fight on the 7800 was like a 3 stooges movie to me. of course the pacmans on all atari systems. mouse trap on the 2600 is a killer. video pinball on the 2600 for its

  23. Yes, we wore masks at entry. Staff were wearing masks, gloves and face shields. We brought our hand sanitizer, drinks and snacks and never left the car. It was a great way to enjoy a movie night while social distancing. Who knew 2020 would be the year of the drive-in?! To answer Gianna's question, it will take a proven vaccine to get me back to a traditional movie theatre. And I love the movies!

  24. I last went to the drive-in in 1982. We saw "Bambi" there. I have not been to one since. They are mostly closed since then in my area.

  27. Since I rarely go out to the movies anyway, I think that I would stay mostly home and stream. However, I am not above going to a movie theater either. I might do a little of both. I still worry about COVID-19, so if I did go out I would definitely take a mask with me. I would encourage my friends to do the same. Safety first, and I live carefully. :O)

  30. I was still in high school when I got that game. The headphone jack on the Genesis allowed me to stay up late and quietly play. I loved the music in that game. Favorite SMS game? Hmm. Well, the only reason why I wanted an SMS to begin with was because of Out Run. I loved the arcade game but the closest thing I could find for the NES was Rad Racer which was not even close. I got Out Run with an SMS for Christmas one year but another game I got received more attention. Astro Warrior. I really enjoyed that one. It was simple and not overly complicated.
