  3. 🥨 I fixed the Rank Pips in the Forums, and added a new rank at 10,000 Points - The Gold Key!

  4. 🤔 What is your 2ND Favorite Video Game System of all time, and why?

    1. RickR

      Picking a 1st is a monthly debate in my head!

      I'll say the 2600 is #1, so that puts the Atari 8-bit computers as #2.  Why?  I grew up with that system and I constantly find myself going back to those games.  It's one of the systems that I leave out and ready all the time. 

      Ask me next week and I might say NES or PS2.  It's so hard to rank them.

      My very favorite being the Jag and the second on my list being the Genesis. They both have the 68000 series CPU in them for different purposes.

  5. 🤔 Here are a few Pro-Tips for scoring big in Soldier Blade: 

     

  6. 🔥 SOLDIER BLADE 5-MIN RUN is now live in High Score Squad! One of the best TG16/PCE games ever! 

     

  7. 👉 @GRay Defender has a wonderful review highly recommending Nukey Shay's 8K Pac-Man. He sums up my thoughts perfectly: Atari's version of 2600 Pac-Man was pathetic, but I still played it relentlessly and appreciate it today for what it is. If you want to play 2600 Pac-Man, swap it out for Nukey Shay's 8K Pac-Man hack and you won't be disappointed:

      I think we'll do 8K Pac-Man next year for our next National Pac-Man Day, it will be a nice way to remember Nukey Shay and a heck of a lot of fun ☺️
