    On Friday Sarah Jane Avory released her latest game for the Commodore 64. Here is my quick video review and some gameplay. Listening to my video after posting it to Youtube- I realize that it sounds like a commercial... I promise that I am not associated with the game or author in any way - I was just really impressed by it and I have been playing a ton of it since Friday night πŸ™‚ Here is the link to buy it on itch.io: https://sarahjaneavory.itch.io/zeta-wing

    This was a while ago, but I did trade with @RickR. During our Squad Challenge of this game, Rick was kind enough to trade me his duplicate copy of Galaxian, AKA better Galaga. Don't get me wrong, Galaga is a fun game, but I have always enjoyed Galaxian more. Galaxian is like Jaws, the original is awesome, the sequels aren't great. Sorry for upsetting you Galaga fans. I know I'm in the vast minority! I wasn't very familiar with the 2600 version until the Squad Challenge, and I am very happy to have it in my collection. I didn't do well in the Squad Challenge but I had lots of fun. Unfortunately my Atari systems were taken shortly after and I still haven't gotten them back. I have included some other recent pickups for the 2600 from A-tar-i and Game Boy Advance. Only Galaxian is from Rick however; the rest are from good ol' Game Trade. There's also a guitar pick because I am being forced to play the guitar for my stuff back. Strangely, I'm kind of enjoying it, though my weak fingertips beg to differ. Rick was great to trade with and I hope we can trade again sometime soon after I get my stuff back (whenever that may be).

    Maybe I should get my axe out and learn some video game themes. Or hey, some of those tv themes from the other thread. We can start a virtual atari.io band!

    Happy Atari day everyone. Here's some depressing Atari Day news: I have had my Atari 7800 taken away for an equal amount of time that I have had it available to be played.

    You got it right. Normal joystick button is thrust, and the booster grip has a button for fire. I have it, and it's really not good. Too cumbersome. The VIC-20 has an outstanding version of Omega Race that uses the 2600 Asteroids control scheme. It works perfectly. I think that version also lets you use paddles (I don't remember how it works) or keyboard. I think I mentioned this in another thread, but Atari should have made a whole series of games to tie together the classics, all featuring the little triangle ship and that control scheme. Example: Missile Command is that other planet attacking yours. So your government decides to strike back and launches the little triangle ship. To get to the other planet, it has to clear out the Asteroids (tie in to Asteroids) so your other ships can get through. Then a new triangle ship game that attacks the other planet, and so on.

    That's alright. I was just curious. And what other button thing does Omega Race need? Also...I wonder if in those loose 5200 games if something is there I don't have? Curious. See...the area I live has nothing like this. So...when I see these pics I'm like a kid in a candy store. LOL. Don't mind me.

    M-Network 1982 β€ͺAtari‬ 2600 Catalog

    On Astroblast, the consequence is a dropping score. Oh higher levels, things fall so quickly, it's hard to make progress if you aren't aggressive. Also, the 2600 version has no peak score. I think this version is better than Intellivision Astrosmash. Astrosmash is slower, and the controls on Astroblast are better (especially with a paddle). Space Battle is a very good Star Raiders type game. The only thing I don't like about the sports games is that they are 2 players only. Other than that, they are better than Atari's Realsport versions. My opinion, of course. I really think M-Network did a great job on 2600 games.

    How much do they want for an Omega Race and do they have Tunnel Runner?

    I don't think they would ship to the Seattle area. I don't think. But yeah, I can ask them. Also, Young, read the Fairchild Channel F post again. I edited it because I had an idea that might help you with your Motorpsycho problem.

    This is for you, @Willie!. I found two boxed Channel F games for you. Couldn't find any loose and I'm pretty sure there was a third one last time, but here they are. Videocart 12, Baseball, and Videocart 4, Spitfire. #4 is from when it was still called the VES. Behind them you can see the boxed Intellivision games. NBA Basketball, Space Armada, and a whole lotta Las Vegas Poker and Blackjack. Take note, @socrates63. I didn't see SNAFU, but I wasn't really looking. I've said this before, but very often their boxed games are the same price as their loose ones as far as the 2nd generation is concerned. Also on this shelf (but not shown) are the boxed 2600 games, boxed 5200 games, boxed Colecovision games, boxed Odyssey 2 games, and boxed 7800 games. There are varying amounts of each. I saw a lot of boxed Intellivison games (probably kept from the trash for overlay storage by their original owners), but only one boxed 5200 game. Today I did see 2600 Ms. Pac-Man and Frogger sealed. I am not sure if it is the original seal, but since many of the other games don't have it they may be NIB. They are typically a little bit more than their loose and CIB counterparts. @RickR I forgot to mention something when I quoted you originally, so I am going to mention it here so not to reach my maximum post limit again: "WOW! That store has a huge selection of great games. I will tell you that most stores here have about 1/10 the 2600 stuff as that. No 5200 or 7800 games. And definitely ZERO TI-99 or VIC-20. And all those boxed consoles! If I ever make it to my work's mothership location, I'm bringing an extra suitcase to buy some of that good junk." Yes. Typically what I would do when I wanted a new 2600 game is play a few on my emulator and decide which one to pick up. Sometimes it would be too pricey and I wouldn't buy it, but never finding the game at all was never an issue, at least for Atari systems. Nintendo, on the other hand... heh. I have had to wait quite a while before I saw certain Nintendo games I was looking for. I don't mind the wait really, but with Atari stuff, especially 2600, it was always there. There was one time where there wasn't a game I was looking for. When I got Tunnel Runner (you can't get on the list for games on Atari systems as they're all listed as miscellaneous in their system so I had to call in and check constantly for that one), I had a discount ready and I was looking for Sky Diver. I couldn't find it that day, but I did find Miniature Golf, which I did not expect to find. When I went back again today there were no less than eight copies of Sky Diver. Plus Sky Skipper. I guess it just never really crossed my mind that other stores weren't like this. I had an idea, though. It's a long shot and I would have to okay it with my parents first, but I was thinking perhaps there was a game someone couldn't find I could pick it up for them and mail it to them. For instance, I know Young has been looking for a few 7800 games recently at some of his local places. If say, I had seen one of those games at this Game Trade place and he wanted to buy it, we could work something out. It would work in reverse as well. Say The No Swear Gamer saw a copy of Tengen Tetris for NES while browsing his local game store that Rick had been on the lookout for (just an example), @nosweargamer could buy it for Rick and Rick could pay him back + shipping costs. We could essentially create a network of local game stores. We all live in different places with different games nearby that other members of the I/O might be on the lookout for. Just a thought.

    Almost five years of faithful service, but now the painted finish on the casing of my 3DS XL is starting to bubble up and flake off, apparently exacerbated by the humidity here. I've decided to finally swap the old girl out for a newer refurbished model.

    7800 Avenue

    Perhaps. I feel that when the revival in the late 90s came about and when the 7800 was actually getting new games, that some of the actual newer arcade games of the time like Paperboy etc. would have done far better for the 7800. I know that newer arcade games were in the works and ultimately never happened, but still. Also would have helped if more unique games like Midnight Mutants had been released or better quality control for games like Planet Smashers and Scrapyard dog. Ultimately, only Atari could save Atari, and they didn't really seem to have a clear idea on how exactly to do that or stay focused on any one thing long enough to really make them stand out more.

    I really enjoyed this game, can you imagine if this game launched along side of Ms. Pacman in 1983. The 7800 would have been the Neo-Geo of 83 - hands down.

    There are usually long stories about where the dupes come from. πŸ™‚ In general: You buy a big ebay lot for one special game you don't have. The rest go in the duplicates box. You find a bargain at a local shop. It doesn't matter if you have them already. Those babies must come home with you. You give stuff away. People don't like taking stuff for free, so they nicely send you stuff they think you need. I've learned to accept anything in trade to avoid making people feel obligated. Etc, etc, etc. I'm just glad to give them good homes. Prices are low, most trades accepted.

    Miner 2049er Vol II Price Check

    Yeah, I have both "Miner 2049er" (NIB) and "Miner 2049er: Volume II" (loose cart without manual). They are two of some of the most valuable cartridges in my collection. I cherish them completely. Nice find, Pizzabear.
