    Zontar reacted to Justin in Atari I/O Secret Santa 2017!   
    HO! HO! HO!
    I'm thrilled to announce Atari I/O Secret Santa 2017!
     
     
     
    $30 Maximum spend on gifts, $20 min spend
     
    Please wrap your presents if you can! Let's make this fun!
     
    Gift items must pertain to classic video games or retro culture
     
    Package must arrive no later than Saturday, December 23, 2017
     
     
     
     
     

     
     
     
    Happy Holidays! It's time for our 3rd Annual Atari I/O Secret Santa! If you'd like to be part of Secret Santa this year, please post a message below saying that you'd like to participate. If you can, include a link to your Want List in your post, or a list of game systems you collect for. The last day to sign up is Wednesday, November 15, 2017. Names will be assigned impartially by our Moderating team, and we will send you a PM with your Secret Santa information no later than Friday, November 17, 2017.
     
    We love classic video games and retro life, and as such gift items can be used or refurbished so long as they meet the criteria of costing you around $30. 
     
    It's really important to us to create magical and special holiday memories for our friends here in the Forums. We're like a small town here, a warm community of friends with similar interests. For some of us who may have to sacrifice to make a special Christmas for our families, this may end up being the only presents we get to open. If you'd like to participate in Secret Santa this year but may not have the means, please send me a PM and we will try to find a way to help.
     
    Your Secret Santa package can be made up of more than one gift, so long as their total value is around $30 and so long as you've put together a gift package that you feel would be magical and special. (Please don't send a box of "junk")
     
    The presents you send should be gift wrapped. We really want this to feel like something special! However, it would be okay to send an item without gift wrapping if you were ordering from an Atari vendor, Amazon or eBay and wanted to have it shipped directly to your person's house as opposed to paying twice for shipping. We encourage you to gift wrap your presents when possible.
     
    If you're unable to participate in Secret Santa this year, please think about donating to a deserving charity of your choice. One charity to consider is the Oregon Food Bank, which RickR brought to our attention last year. You can visit them online at www.oregonfoodbank.org
     
     
     
     If you would like to participate, you must sign up by Wednesday, November 15, 2017  
     
     
     
     
    Happy Holidays to All!

    Zontar reacted to Justin in Squad Challenge - BurgerTime (Intellivision)   
    Thanks for sharing your review here, nosweargamer. BurgerTime will be our first Intellivision Squad Challenge. For me, the most exciting aspect of hosting High Squad Challenges is encouraging people to try a game they haven't played before, or may not have picked up in a while. We've tried to balance pillar titles with some overlooked favorites for a nice mix. BurgerTime in my opinion is one of the top reasons to buy an Intellivision. Everybody here may not have one, but hopefully can find a way to play. Your video is a great introduction to the game and overview on how to play!

    Guys I'm super excited about this. This Game means a lot to me because it was one of the games at my father and I used to play together. We had some serious serious high score challenges back in the day against each other. I can still remember him digging through the bargain barrel and paying only a couple bucks for this. This was after the crash and before Nintendo, and quite frankly when I was a kid I didn't even know there was a crash, only that my dad was bringing home games for cheap. Really looking forward to playing this on my original hardware, with my original game, and hell I might even have the old man come by and play a few rounds.

    Zontar reacted to atarilbc in Jaguar ProController Reproductions Announced   
    There was an exciting post today over on the Atari Jaguar Facebook page. Apparently, some folks are working on a reproduction of the Jaguar ProController. If you're a Jaguar fan, you know that the ProController vastly improves on the original Jaguar controller in terms of feel and function. Many of the late releases (1995 and beyond) have ProController support that enhances gameplay. Unfortunately, these controllers regularly exceed $200 on eBay, making them out of reach for many gamers. The reproductions will reportedly cost $50-60. They are asking for an interest check now but I'm hopeful that this comes to fruition. Maybe Clint can confirm and provide more information?
