    Very cool. Star Fox is one of those games I'd play on demo kiosks in stores while my mom was shopping in other departments. I wish I had time to find my copy, hook up the SNES and take part, but I'm super busy on my channel this month. I'm celebrating Atari 2600 Paddle games and am trying to review as many of them as possible before the month ends. Good luck to all who take part!

    Yeah, so called "Atari" today are nothing more than litigation hungry holders of trademark / IP who just want to try and grab every bit profit they can. Also, they want to keep reselling the same crap over and over to the Atari faithful. The AtariVCS has yet to have a single unit reach an actual backers hands, the only people who have claimed to receive any units seem to be "friends" or family (IE: people connected) to the AtariVCS team, I remain very skeptical an actual backer will ever receive a unit, even if they DO it is nothing worth the price and certainly brings nothing new to the table but of course people want one because it has a woodgrain finish and an Atari logo on it. They have proven to be very heavy handed against anyone using the Atari name even though such projects are what keep interest and the legacy in mind and alive. They wont release a 2600 compatible with HDMI for $50 or under because they are not capable of doing so, so instead they want to sue a company that has done exactly that 🙄 They consider themselves as gatekeepers of the Atari brand but sadly it seems every move and decision they make just deteriorate the Atari brand and legacy more and more, SHAME. You damn well know even if they worked with HYPERKIN to produce the Retron77 they would have been $150 USD right from the get go.

    There's a lot of "Skip List" in the TNG library for me. The entirety of season 1 IMO. Luckily, the show got much better in season 2 and on! I've got no complaints with your lists. I really like the episode "Darmok" and would promote that one to full "Must Watch" status. "Chain of Command" was a 2 part-er, wasn't it? So take those two off, add Darmok and "Parallels". I guess it's hard to pare it down to only 5! There's a lot that TNG did really well. But there are some aspects of the show that I disliked. The Romulans, for example. Why do they have the forehead piece? Shouldn't they look like Vulcans? What's a Vulcan without an eyebrow raise? And those giant shoulder pads and unflattering hair-do's -- WTFeklar! Remember the Romulan Commander from TOS "The Enterprise Incident"? That's the look they should have gone with. "Star Trek: Picard" fixed the Romulans for the better IMO.

    36,400. This is the first time I've gotten to Venom.

    Let's get started with a score! This was my first attempt and I'm pretty happy with how it went, I got all the way to Venom but that last boss handed it to me. My High Score: 47,100 Your score is displayed at the end of each round. You'll want to take a photo of your score before you begin the next leg of your journey because a final score is not displayed at the end of the game when you lose your last life.

    Hyperkin - Retron 77. HD Atari 2600?

    Competitors could get away with 2600 clones when the 2600 was the #1 video game system on store shelves, but now Zombie Atari is going to sue Hyperkin. Okay. Maybe Atari should release an actual Atari-compatible system with HDMI output for under $50 and this wouldn't be an issue.
