    Wow, I'm impressed by your dedication! This is no draw, you've definitely earned the win!
    Has anyone figured out a pattern for the instant replays? I hardly saw any later on in the game, but maybe they don't trigger if you finish a level too quickly.

    This does suck about modern games.  They are dependent on servers to work.  So, now this is happening with a mainstream system like the Xbox.  It happened with OUYA and we'll have to see who is next.  There will be no "retro" gaming for future generations with this model.

    We are working on everything we need for Novawolf. I hope we can have it available for purchase by the end of the month for the Christmas Holiday.

    I'm not surprised by that.  Given how the last season ended, I'd expect the show to be totally different.  Pandora's box has been opened!

    This is an awesome sci fi show.  I'm glad Amazon picked it up and has continued it.

    I also recommend the McWill update.  It is night and day when it comes to how well the games looks.  Well worth the $$$.

    TrekMD reacted to Justin in Clear Mario Bros. Atari 2600 Prototype Game Cartridge   
    Here's a cool bit of gaming history I picked up this week for our growing Atari I/O classic gaming museum...
     
    This is a prototype Mario Bros. game cartridge for Atari 2600. There are a few reasons (obvious) that make this a great addition to the museum:
     
    This is not the retail release. The game is playable, but not entirely complete. 
      It's essentially two prototypes in one. This isn't just a prototype of the game, it's a prototype of the physical cartridge itself. Or rather an engineering sample. Most Atari prototypes were placed in black "Lab Loaner" Atari cartridges. I'm sure we've all seen these at some point. This cartridge is different, because it's half clear.

    When Atari redesigned the game cartridges to house both 2600 and 7800 games and removed the dust cover mechanism, they likely shot off a few samples in clear plastic to test the molds. This is one of those clear cartridges. So it's a pre-production engineering sample of a clear cartridge with a prototype game inside of it. This cartridge was originally found among the clear Atari 7800 console shells.
      It's not just any prototype, it's Mario Bros.! How cool to think that this would be one of the very first game cartridges in the world to bear the "Mario Bros." name and take Mario & Luigi on their first adventure together   
    Pretty cool stuff. I've made this image openly available so feel free to use it and share it in any way that you'd like:

    My wife and I aren't really into Halloween too much holiday wise. As a result, we shut off all he outside lights we can and order pizza so we can stay in bedroom to watch TV and 'hide'.

    I worked at a small musical theater in CT a few years ago & Fiddler was one of the shows that year. I had never seen it before & the only song I was vaguely familiar with was "Sunrise, Sunset". The show was amazing and to this day, I find myself with random songs from the show stuck in my head.

    Oh, on my last trip to Puerto Rico to visit my family I went to a new store they have that essentially clears merchandise.  I got two of the AtGames controllers with multiple games there.  I paid $6 for each one.  I couldn't resist!

    They feel cheap in your hands but they do the job just fine and, for $6, I am not complaining.

    It's not the movie.  I'm going to the actual musical play! 
    Hmm, how about watching Hocus Pocus with your wife?  It's family friendly and fun and not really scary but appropriate for Halloween!  Disney just announced a sequel for it for their Disney+ service.
