    TrekMD reacted to kamakazi20012 in Australia Relief Pack   
    I got this message on my Steam account as soon as I loaded it up today.  I thought it was a cool idea and thought I would pass it along to you guys.
    To help Australia, Humble has put together a Steam game bundle pack that contains over $400 worth of software for just $25.  100% of the money spent will go to Australia to aid people and animals affected by the Australia fires.
    So if anyone here has Steam and would like to increase their library this is a good way to do it.  Just thought I'd pass it along.

    Maybe next year we should do a Christmas game on the 2600 for December?  There are ROM files available for several games that we could try that month:  Mean Santa, Bad Elf, Santa's Workshop and Toyshop Trouble come to mind.

    That is unusual for Portland.  During PRGE usually it is raining and cold already but I remember it was dry and fairly warm the year before.

    TrekMD got a reaction from Justin in Howard Scott Warshaw’s video game was blamed for single-handedly sinking a multibillion-dollar market. But the true story is more complicated.   
    This is a fallacy that keeps on getting repeated. The crash came for a multitude of reasons and ET certainly was not the worst games ever.  There are plenty other really horrid titles on the 2600 from companies that tried to get easy money from video games.  ET wasn't perfect but it could be played and it was rather involved for a 2600 game.  You just needed to read the manual.  A bit more polish could have made the game better and, in fact, someone has done this and fixed the issues with the game to make it more fun to play.
