  1. Thank you. I just finished preparing for my virtual visits for tomorrow. At least the patients I've been talking to seem to be adhering to the rules. Thanks for the offer to help. ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. I am doing well but things in Miami are really spinning out of control. We have more than doubled the number of cases in two weeks (from 18,000 to 51,000). Our daily number of cases are at 2000 new cases/day. Hospitals are at 95% capacity already. I am not seeing patients in the office. Everything is being done by phone or video chat. We are having a rise in numbers because people are not following guidelines, beaches get closed but people still go, people are doing parties at their homes without wearing masks, etc. if there is a wrong way of doing it, it is being done. So, I just go to my office and come back home. I go grocery shopping twice a month and I go near closing time as that's when there are very few people at the store.
  3. Nintendo did not skimp in spending money to make sure their games were good. They did what they had to by adding memory, etc to the carts. What did Atari do? Skimp on everything. They could have included POKEY chips on the carts but they didn't. They could have released the originally planned XM, and they didn't. They just didn't push hard enough to show the capabilities of the 7800. Look at Rikki & Vikki as an example of what the system can do when resources are uses properly. GCC supposedly said there was no space for the POKEY on the board as they were planning a cheaper alternative to the POKEY that could be put in carts. Unfortunately, their plans went they way of the Dodo when Atari got sold to the Tramiels and the mess of who had to pay them started.
  4. The 7800 version outshines the XE and the NES with this game. The NES version has flicker, the 7800 version has none.
  5. This article may be of interest: We traced Namcoโ€™s โ€œnewโ€ Pac-Man demake to its source: A 2008 fan ROMhack
  6. I'm buying both of these for my PS4!
  7. Coleco and Mattel both created "attachments" for their consoles that would let people play 2600 games. I thought it was cool back then, particularly if you already had 2600 games. Coleco took it to the next level by releasing the Gemini, which looked pretty cool and had those fancy controllers. I had a classmate who had the Gemini. He had wanted an Atari but his dad got him the Gemini instead. I wonder what happened with that console!
  8. I know of two rides that were designed with virtual lines in mind: Jimmy Fallon and the one with Vin Diesel. The Harry Potter attraction did not have virtual lines before but it is ride that gets packed, so it makes sense they've added that now. Thanks. I'm trying to get a feel for how it is working.
  9. That is my mindset as well. Each version has its own uniqueness for the given system they are ported to.
  10. I prefer the 7800 version. I like how it looks and how it updates the original game. Of course, the 7800 probably should have had the arcade version ported instead of the computer version. I wonder how that would have looked like on the system.
  11. Glad you had a good time. I've planned trips for October and December. I'm going to the Disney Parks and Universal. Disney has their reservation system to limit capacity. Universal just limits capacity so you need to make in early. Are all the lines virtual now at Universal?
  12. I haven't had a chance to really play this game to properly participate. So, here is the only score I was able to get in the few minutes I was able to play.
  13. Oh, this is a lightgun game? That's cool!
  14. My copy should be arriving tomorrow. Really looking forward to it!
  15. That looks cool. Has it had its rabies vaccine?
  16. Yes and I have since played the arcade machine. They had one at FreePlay Florida a couple of years ago.
  17. 7800 version for me. It's the first version I ever played too. In fact, I didn't even know this was an arcade game when I got my 7800!
  18. That was fun, Willie! Looking forward to the Pac-Man episode with all the 2600 ports. ๐Ÿ™‚
  19. The gameplay is the same the 7800 version looks better to me. The XEGS version sounds a bit better but the 7800 does a good enough job in that department. It's a tough game no matter what!
  20. Here two versions of the same theme...
