    Who Wants StormSurge's Junk?

    Sooooo... I finally have my game room/man cave/hideout nearly completed. I’m unpacking all of my stuff from the move two years ago & guess what? I need to purge more. I’m going to have a junk box or two of 2600 games, some Genesis games, more manuals & other stuff. I’m sure there will be some NES games too once I get to that box. Just like last time, I’m not looking for anything in return. HOWEVER, if anyone has any CIB 2600 games (that I’ll list in a separate post), that would be awesome. 😀 I’ll update this post as I keep unpacking & sorting. I just wanted to give you all a heads up. 👍

    It's looking like there may be a console or three included in this purge. 😔😬

    Jeopardy

    Is anyone else besides me swept up in James-mania? In case you haven't heard, the current champ is obliterating the Jeopardy record books. After 9 games, he already owns the top 3 single day earnings records. He's a machine. Ken Jennings holds the total earnings record in 74 games. James is on pace to break that record somewhere in the 20 game range. It's like Jordan, Tiger & Ruth in their primes, all rolled into one. Here's the first time he broke it (he's done it two more times & I have a feeling he's not done yet):

    TRON. Video games gave us TRON, and TRON gave us more games. And Wall*E.

    That's a great one! Atari Industrial Designer Regan Cheng has always cited Blade Runner and Syd Mead's work on Blade Runner in particular as a big influence on Atari's product design. And who can forget seeing the Atari Fuji pop up in Blade Runner? Hard to believe that's supposed to be this year.

    I think I play a lot more now that I used to. Since we are empty nesters, I seem to have more time for that, and it makes me happy. Right now, I'm on a big GB/GBA kick, so I play that almost every day.

    Always looking for games I don't have. Especially 2600 and NES. I can't find those locally.

    Rafał Jankowski has announced he will be releasing a new multicart for the Atari Lynx called the AgaCart. The AgaCart will use an SD cart for storing ROM files. You choose the games using buttons on the back of the cartridge. The Cart supports 256k and 512k games in .lyx format, 128k files need to be converted to 256k. The maximum number of files is 199. Rafał Jankowski has released already a 48-in-1 Lynx multicart in the past, so he has experience with this type of project and this is essentially an updated version of his previous multicart. For those interested, the AgaCart can already be ordered by contacting Rafał at the Polish Atari Forums. He plans to start a thread for taking orders on Atari Age as well. If you're curious about the technical details, check out the thread at the Polish Atari Forum.

    I think that's an outstanding deal. I'll try to keep my eye out for that AtariAge post.

    The design is really cool. I like that the micro SD card goes into the side. He lists the price in the thread I linked to but I guess once a thread is started in Atari Age we may get better details. The price he lists is 220 PLN, which is about $57 US for the cart itself.

    Got past the third level in one ship (I kept resetting if I died, lol). Anyway, didn't last long in the fourth level. It's so hard to get to it that I have no practice in it. Anyway, new high score for me.

    The Atari Creep

    You could not be amy more correct about how different it was. I was at first kind of bummed out about it but then I played it. Its a cool mindless maze game that I enjoyed. Not too hard but not easy either. Had a great deal of fun with it, enough to warrant maybe a part 2 to this stream.

    Batman on TurboGrafx-16 is pretty different from Batman on NES and not what a lot of people were expecting. I had never played Batman on the NES so I never knew the difference. I only knew Batman Returns on Atari Lynx. What were your impressions of Batman on TurboGrafx?

    I enjoy the modern stuff but i have to feed my hunger for some kind of classic game. I have found one modern game that does somewhat satisfy that hunger...Mighty No. 9. It is easy to see how it shows its Mega Man heritage. Fun game. Otherwise it's Atari, Nintendo, or Sega classic gaming. At times the original XBOX feeds that classic gaming hunger. Dreamcast, too.

    I go through periods where I don't play anything for several weeks at a time... but I feel it averages out to once a week or several times a week. Usually play something on Saturday. Weekdays just seem too hectic.

    I lean more towards "almost every day" though I fall back to "a few times a week" when real life gets in the way.

    Almost everyday for me. I usually play a classic before wife wants me to join her in a game on XBOX. Sometimes I can't decide what to play so I just grab the XBOX controller.

    Please DO post what CIB games you are looking for, as I would be happy to help with that. And I'm interested in any games you have that I don't already have. Probably Genesis, NES, and manuals. The junk box concept would be really cool! Maybe have a big ziploc bag within that contains items we can put in that YOU want back, so that nobody takes those. In any case, THANKS. It's nice of you no matter who gets them. And congrats on getting your game room set up how you like it. That's huge.

    Many thanks, Justin, truly appreciate the support the project has received so far, this needs to happen if we are to save humanity from dreaded Commodore 64 and ZX Spectrum books appearing in the future, this is our last stand 🤣 we had this, this morning from an awesome Atari 8-bit legend. Very nice to see it!

    Konami Anniversary

    Konami, known for their classic hits on early platforms, has released a collection of their popular arcade games for modern hardware to celebrate their 50th anniversary. Happy 50th Konami and thanks for doing this. https://www.konami.com/games/50th/ac/arcade/us/en/

    Took a trip to the big city today and visited an arcade. Lots of classic arcade games set to free play. Pay $10 (plus tax) at the door and play all you want. I went in planning to write down all the games I played, but I quickly lost track. I got the high score on Ms Pac Man, though! (Okay, they had probably recently reset the scores, so it didn’t take much. But several people played after I did and none of them beat me, so there! lol) I realized afterward that I should have taken more pics, but I was having too much fun playing! And as an added bonus, we saw a Vista Cruiser station wagon in the parking lot when we were leaving. Just like the one in That 70s Show!

    That dude (aka Eric Butts) knew exactly what he was doing I am pretty sure. 😉Over reacting / getting emotional watching trailers is one of his gimmicks, it got him TONS of views and sweet ad revenue as well as attention from celebs including Mark Hamill, and Gary Whitta and already he has been interviewed and supported by his local news as well as the BBS and his twitter description "I’m the guy who cries to Star Wars trailers! " - While the hate is unwarranted and sad I suggest he knew EXACTLY what the result would be, there are plenty more people standing up for him and being upset on his behalf, Eric is just fine with the reaction and thick skinned, a direct quote from Eric. TO BE CLEAR - It does not excuse the hate I just believe Eric anticipated it and used it to his advantage and GOOD FOR HIM lol. It's LEAVE BRITTANY ALONE all over again. 🤔😆👍

    Me, too. It has the display of how many ROMs are stored in it. That is actually a good rule of thumb. I like that feature. :)

    Today's episode is James' 14th game. After today's episode, he is inching closer to AVERAGING what the former single-game record was ($77,000). It truly is amazing. Oh & to keep this discussion relevant to the forum, he dropped a Super Tecmo Bowl reference last week. 😀

    When I used to see the 4th stage (with all the pellets) in the arcade demo, it always reminded me of this Metroid II commercial:
