    socrates63's gaming collection and setup

    I'm assuming you purchased those from Shawn over at AA? Pretty cool! I've got most of the repros for games that weren't released in the states already, but my go to on this has always been this guy here: https://genesisrepros.com/ His repros are some of the best I've ever purchased. Nice glossy labels like they were back in the day, new clamshell cases, and in many cases, full color manuals to go with them. Even when something is listed as out of stock, it helps to contact him and ask all the same.

    Atari PONG Mini Jr console??

    I keep going back and forth on this one. Guess it all comes down to cost with me. If priced right I will pick one up.But I know my family will get some good use out of it and could enjoy it. Can't say that for others.

    Oooh, buy 2 get 1. I don't spend much time at AA. But maybe I should. @socrates63, please let me know if you see a deal like that again (and no pressure...just if you think of it).

    The one annoying thing about Demon Attack is that there is no pause. You finish one wave, and the next starts like in 0.5 seconds. But the most annoying thing is when you die in the middle of the screen, and the demon that killed you is still sitting on top of you when you new cannon appears. I died 2 or 3 times in like a 2 second span.

    Fantastic score @socrates63! I have such a hard time with the last set of demons (the ones that look like growing/shrinking infinity symbols). I usually lose several lives there.

    8260. Frustrating me to no end knowing I can and have done MUCH better but oh well. Just a warning, I talk about some sensitive things in this one. Some how it became a PSA about suicide awareness and prevention. It is what it is. LOL

    Harry's Adventures in 7800 Collecting

    Wow. Just wow. I can't believe they're here! @cjherr (who I found out was here all along) generously sent a box of twenty-some Atari 7800 cartridges. I am incredibly grateful for this gift. He said these games weren't used anymore as he's a strictly Flashcart kind of guy. He wanted these games to serve their purpose (being played) instead of collecting dust, so he kindly sent them to me! So, now my Atari 7800 library has been more than tripled! Honestly, man, I can't thank you enough! So, I said I'd post an unboxing video here. I plan to completely reform my channel into "almost strictly gaming" sometime soon, though no promises that I won't occasionally delve into other topics! So, for the first time you will all be able to hear my voice! I had to stay a little quiet as others in the house were doing video calls and such. There's also Sharpie on my hands as I used one to block out the personal info on the box. I swear, every time I go so much as near those things, ink gets all over my hand! Without further ado, An Atari 7800 Unboxing! So, there's my video! I'm humbled by this generous gift. I need to find a way to pay it forward someday. I don't know when, but someday... So, if you don't have time to watch me ramble on and on, here's a list of the games I got in the box: Ms. Pac-Man Robotron: 2084 Dark Chambers Touchdown Football Commando Desert Falcon Realsports Baseball Rampage Donkey Kong Donkey Kong Junior Crossbow Joust Xenophobe Pole Position II Xenophobe Xevious Xevious (yes there are two of them) Galaga Choplifter! Asteroids Hat Trick Centipede Dig Dug I hope to try these out soon. I haven't played any yet. The good news is that my mom is going to let me have my 7800 back for a bit! Or at least, that's what she said to me. When I'm able to play them, I plan to post my thoughts on a specific game each day. So on one day, I'll cover Donkey Kong for example, and maybe the next day I'll do Robotron. Thanks all for reading my post and watching the video! What are your thoughts on these games?

    So true! But I did notice one really cool thing I never realized before. The explosion sounds change subtly for each alien type.

    Me, too. Those are the toughest. They're so much smaller than the other demon types.

    The Atari 7800 Game By Game Podcast

    Young, you need to! It' s great when you're mowing the lawn or raking leaves or something. And I also have no idea how he is able to make all this quality content on his channel and still have time for himself! I'm going to really miss this podcast when it's over. If I remember correctly, you have a Twilight Zone podcast for your patrons, @nosweargamer? Or maybe that was someone else. I like the OG Twilight Zone quite a bit. I wish I could become a Patron, but I just can't afford it right now. Maybe in the future once I get a job. $1 a month isn't bad.

    No bud. I am using a thing called OpenEMU for Mac. I do not know a damed thing about it, a buddy set it up for me. It has a ton of systems on it and runs very well. Hope that helps.

    The Atari Creep

    @Atari Creep I actually just took the BB-8 out of a box of some of my old stuff in the basement today. However, there was also a rubber ball that seems to have melted all over the box. Maybe it was a chemical thing and the rubber of the squishy ball melted because it didn't like something else in that box. Anyways, now my BB-8 is full of sticky green slime! So I am cleaning it at the present. It probably still works. Thanks for reminding me about this really cool thing! I remember it being awesome and I can't wait to revisit it!
