  1. I'm closing in on both my 250th Atari 2600 game review and my 700th episode. So I'm planning to do something special for my next three episodes...

  4. 🧠 PRO-TIP: Presales aren't allowed on Atari I/O. Even with the best intentions, sincere promises of "ready to ship in six months" many times become tumultuous as months turn into years or even a decade without fulfillment. Please wait until your product is ready to ship before soliciting sales in our Marketplace.

  5. 379 tickets! Can you guess what I was able to get with them? A small plastic shark that lights up, except the light up part didn’t work, and a jolly rancher 😯 nonetheless I had fun in the Universal arcade!

  7. Playing Sonic CD for the first time. Quite a trippy game. Really fun though. (Edit: Just beat it. Unfortunately didn't manage to get the good ending. Stardust Speedway is confusing, and Metallic Madness is a pain. Also, the race against Metal Sonic is very unforgiving. But a very fun game regardless. Surprised it took me so long to play it.)

  9. A quick review of the "Super Mario Bros Game & Watch". One of my kids got one as a gift, and I've borrowed it while they weren't looking. Quick summary: It's awesome. Worth the price. My opinion is that Super Mario Bros on NES is a masterpiece. The colors, the music, the level designs, the bright graphics. All perfect. And this little device captures all that. At first, the controls seem a little slippery, but that's just because the screen is so small. Once you get used to that, it's all good. The screen is nice and bright. The music sounds great. It's so well done.

  13. My game collection cleanup continues. Recently I reorganized my Atari 8-bit games. Turns out I have a lot of copies of "Left Cartridge"! 😉 I also have 3 games without labels. I'll be posting a video soon showing what they turned out to be.

  16. I'm selling my SMS Model 2 locally. I took pictures of it for the buyer. Why not take a picture of the SMS Model 1 at the same time? Here they both are for your viewing pleasure. SMS is a great system. Highly recommended for anyone that enjoys the NES or 7800.

  23. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU @nosweargamer FOR THE MAGICAL MYSTERY ODYSSEY 2 GAME PACKAGE! My dad sends his thanks as well. It was an awesome surprise and my dad was really happy to get Alpine Skiing after 40 years! I was really excited that we got Alien Invaders Plus, one of my favorite games on the system. We also played some War of Nerves and Armored Encounter, which was a lot of fun.

It's a conflict between the existing template and the updated software. I am taking out a ticket to get this resolved. The site isn't going anywhere ☺️

  28. HAPPY ATARIVERSARY! One year ago today, I finally got the system of my dreams after wanting one for years and years. I'm very happy to finally have these systems and I can't believe it's been a year already! I've gone a little cuckoo for Atari collecting these past 365 days. I've collected close to 100 Atari 2600 cartridges! I also have around 25 games for my 7800 (thanks to the site for convincing me to get that awesome system). Many of the games I've gotten from Atari.io. Special thanks to @RickR, @chas10e, @socrates63, @cjherr, and @Scott Stilphen (I really hope I'm not forgetting anyb

  30. Hello, I/O! I wanted to provide a quick personal update. I suffered a big heart attack and had open heart surgery on Wednesday last week. I was discharged and returned home yesterday. I’ve missed the I/O community. I hope everyone is well. I am on the road to recovery and doing as well as can be. Life is good. God is good all the time. The doctor said I should expect 70% recovery by two months time, so it’ll still be a while before I can actively join the fun here, I suspect. I’m hoping that I’ll be feeling well enough to pop in from time to time to check up on this wonderful communi

  34. What exactly did we do to make the gators seek revenge? Was it because of the purses, shoes, and wallets we crafted from their flesh? Was it because of how we destroyed their habitats to create large tourist attractions? Nobody truly knows how exactly we wronged our Floridian crocodilian compadres, but they seem to be handling it pretty well. At least, on the surface...

  35. Thank you all so much for 1,000+ reputation points! I am very grateful for your hospitality to a noob like myself. Another thing— my planned giveaway will have to be pushed back a little bit. Hope no one is too upset about that.

  38. I purchased a Mattel Electronics Battlestar Galactica Space Alert on eBay. It's dirty, but it works! I'm very excited to have it, as this is one I remember so fondly from my childhood. I do need some help, though. There's no way I'm getting that tape off the back without ruining the instructions sticker. Does anyone know where to find a scan of that sticker? My hope is to print it on my inkjet printer and glue it on. Also in need of a 3D printed battery cover if anyone knows a source for those. THANKS!

  39. I feel "deep retro" at the moment. Listening to the Cars debut record with turntable through the Atari Video Music while giving Demon Attack one more go on a 4-switch Sears Video Arcade and CRT. #deepretro #innovativeleisure

  41. The most blessed news I've heard in some time: Level 1 reduced to Level Zero Effective immediately (Sunday, Sept. 13), the Clackamas Co Sheriff’s Office is dropping the evacuation level for some of the populated urban areas from Level 1 (Green) back to Normal. This includes Wilsonville, Lake Oswego, West Linn, Happy Valley, Gladstone, Milwaukie, Clackamas, and Tualatin. See map https://bit.ly/35kgtbE for changes.

  42. I picked up a Samsung GX TV in working order and decent cosmetic condition. I remember when these came out and it's as ridiculous now as it was then! Pretty pumped on the sound and picture.

  44. Got em! Added two unopened Galaxians to my Atari 2600 collection. 😍🔥🔥 Adding something new to your collection always makes it a great day! Galaxian comes with an original DC Comics ashcan included, which spices things up with some added adventure to the Galaxian story, and adds a new dimension of collectability to the game.
