  1. 🤔 THOUGHT: The Atari XEGS was everything the Atari 5200 should've been: Atari 8-Bit Computer technology bundled in a console w/ lots of memory, detachable keyboard, & fully compatible w/ Atari computer games & joysticks!

      That would have been cool I think, always liked the wacky look of the XEGS, never did end up with one but I have a pretty nice 5200 collection.

  5. My local Gamestop has a pre-owned WiiU that I've had my eyes on for several weeks now, so I've decided to save up enough to buy it. I've got almost half the asking price of $129.99 now, and hope to have the other half by March. 

    I really want to get into the WiiU Virtual Console before Ninty eventually pulls the plug on it.

      I do not own either but at this point the SWITCH would seem the better option.

      Nice man! Enjoy! Now I'd personally mod it and put all the SNES ROMS on it but that's me lol.

  7.  I cannot believe it, just after my video the other day and I said I never find anything good in electronic recycling during holidays? Today I found a laptop! Guess someone got a new one for Christmas, in take, great condition, Silver 14 or 15' HP Pavilion! Of course could not log in, don't know specs yet but it came with WINDOWS 8 so already better than the old HP Pavilion I was playing with Linux. Will make a great secondary laptop. Looked it up and running recovery mode on it NOW.

      Considering the timing I suspect someone got a nice new powerful laptop for Xmas 😛 Ah well, fine by me, they literally sat it gently on top with the power supply right beside it. Guess they figured nobody could log in anyway but hey in the wrong hands....fortunately for them instead of bothering to access the hard drive by various methods to bypass the login password or hook up to an externally to look at the files, I just looked up how to access HP RECOVERY and after setting it to original stock install of WIn 8 since it is a valid license I was able to update free to Win 10. Not the fastest CPU but it is still better than the previous old HP laptop I found a few years back (I use that with Linux MINT). There are a lot of older retirees here as well so who knows? Maybe someone bought gramps a new laptop and he just placed the old one in the bin. I figure better I got it than someone else or having it actually end up at the recycle depot 😛

      Woo Hoo! Using media creation tool I just updated it from 8.1 to Win 10 valid license. Now I am just customizing, removing crap, optimizing, updating drivers then of course finish off with my own OS image backup.

  9. Peace and blessings to all during this holiday season.  

  10. You know it saddens me that SEGA has never matched the quality / quantity / fun that they generated back in the 8-16 bit era. 😐

      Still have 3 Dreamcasts sitting in my closet as well as a modded Saturn and a ton of games, yes I enjoy many of them still but I cannot quite say it generated that same excitement for me personally.

  17. Since this past weekend my subs on YouTube have jumped 30 or so. I have never tried to have a large channel and I am sure my content shows that but I would be lying if I said it didn't feel good! So if you are part of this little journey of mine, THANK YOU so much! Love this community.

  18. It's a little disconcerting seeing what's going with the "Coleco" brand owners cracking down on the ColecoVision community. So many tremendously talented game designers in that homebrew scene, and OpCode has been a huge inspiration...

    1. MaximumRD

      That is the problem often when you get these IP / Copyright buyers who have little or no understanding of the current community. Out of touch with the history and long time fans of the company. I do not understand why they do not try hardware to support the very people that keep Colecovision loved and viable today.

       

  19. Hye everyone! Just wanted to say sorry for the lack of involvement from me as of late. New job has me all over the place and time is short. I will be back as strong as always very soon!!!!! Hope all is doing well!
