  1. Yeah, so called "Atari" today are nothing more than litigation hungry holders of trademark / IP who just want to try and grab every bit profit they can. Also, they want to keep reselling the same crap over and over to the Atari faithful. The AtariVCS has yet to have a single unit reach an actual backers hands, the only people who have claimed to receive any units seem to be "friends" or family (IE: people connected) to the AtariVCS team, I remain very skeptical an actual backer will ever receive a unit, even if they DO it is nothing worth the price and certainly brings nothing new to the table but of course people want one because it has a woodgrain finish and an Atari logo on it. They have proven to be very heavy handed against anyone using the Atari name even though such projects are what keep interest and the legacy in mind and alive. They wont release a 2600 compatible with HDMI for $50 or under because they are not capable of doing so, so instead they want to sue a company that has done exactly that ๐Ÿ™„ They consider themselves as gatekeepers of the Atari brand but sadly it seems every move and decision they make just deteriorate the Atari brand and legacy more and more, SHAME. You damn well know even if they worked with HYPERKIN to produce the Retron77 they would have been $150 USD right from the get go.
  2. Lot's of retro goodness and wonderfully displayed as well. ๐Ÿ˜Ž
  3. Interesting article. THE CREATION OF MISSILE COMMAND AND THE HAUNTING OF ITS CREATOR, DAVE THEURER By Alex Rubens on August 15, 2013 at 12:00pm https://www.polygon.com/features/2013/8/15/4528228/missile-command-dave-theurer?fbclid=IwAR3zZIL3eGy2ic8Ryyz1C2OV_vQxF8aqyqRYEdfOwFLOtXObm32bsZk8Z9U
  4. RIP - BUT really cannot be sad in this case, a well deserved rest for a long, long life!ย Olivia de Havilland, a two-time Oscar winner and for decades the last surviving star of "Gone With the Wind," has died at age of 104, her publicist Lisa Goldberg told CNN.https://www.ctvnews.ca/entertainment/olivia-de-havilland-star-of-gone-with-the-wind-dies-at-104-1.5039658

  5. Awesome NES game FROM BELOW ๐Ÿ˜Ž That's right, came across this and thought I would share. Not just in the classic 8-bit NES style but in fact actually available to play online in a browser based NES emulator or even better download the latest ROM file direct from the authour to play in an emulator or even on actual NES compatible hardware using Flashcart / Everdrive etc. https://mhughson.itch.io/from-below A fun and impressive game! Check out this screen shot as well an excerpt of the description. Link to itchio . com for more info and ROM downloads. The Kraken cometh... From the deepest trenches of the ocean, the Kraken has come to lay waste to your city! The archers have slung every arrow. The burning tar has run dry. Every piece of military weaponry has been dispatch. And yet... the Kraken moves forward, climbing the towering walls of your seaside fortress. With no ammunition left, the city itself moves from a barricade, to a weapon! The stones of the walls are broken off, and hurdled down at hideous creature. And it just might be enough to slow it down till morning, when surely help will arrive... --- Hi! I am working on my first Homebrew NES game, FROM BELOW! It a falling block puzzle game featuring: Soft Drops Hard Drops Wall Kicks T-Spins Lock Delay 3 modes of play: Kraken Battle Mode The signature mode of FROM BELOW. Battle the Kraken by clear lines across the onslaught of attacking Kraken Tentacles. The Tentacles push more blocks onto the screen every few seconds, forcing to act quickly, and strategize on an every changing board. nes_tetris_july_03_gameplay_edit.gif.f612edbacd3915eafbfc0e0e5735b0f8.gif Classic Mode The classic block falling mechanics you know and love without any new gimicks. Modernize for 2020, with Hard Drops, Lock Delay, and more, making this (hopefully) the best feeling puzzle game on the NES! Turn Based Kraken Battle Mode Similar to "Kraken Battle Mode", but instead of the Kraken attacking every few seconds, it advances its tentacle every time you drop a piece. Make every move count, as this move favors slow, deliberate play! https://mhughson.itch.io/from-below
  6. Oh man R.O.B. would have been awesome! Oh I miss not having that, not so much to USE IT but to just look it it, so nostalgic ! ๐Ÿค–
  7. Found many of my favorites like TOM SERVO from Mystery Science Theater 3000. So many popular and less known ROBOTS, posted elsewhere but I had to share this higher resolution version. WHO'S YOUR FAVORITE?
  8. ๐Ÿ˜› Well I will post one more, I tried but I guess not many will put themselves out there or laugh at themselves (THANKS to few who participated), that's cool, I tried and in that same spirit this next post shows I am totally willing to be laughed at. I will leave it at that, this thread can just die off or whatever. ---- BUT FIRST A MESSAGE ----- NO RAT(S) WERE HARMED IN THE MAKING OF THIS 30+ YEAR OLD IMAGE, THOUGH THEY MAY HAVE ENDURED SOME MOISTURE ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜œ ME back in my teens, yep that is real, my pet RAT JD, if I say he did not bite me on occasion I would be lying, if I said I did not deserve it.....I would also be lying....SIDE NOTE, an old iPhone 4 makes an awesome fast scanner for old photos ๐Ÿ˜›๐Ÿ˜† Last word, besides silly shenanigans like this they my rats (JD and MARTY, MARTY WAS ALL WHITE) were played with a lot, feed pizza or whatever I was snacking on etc. They were fun. ๐Ÿ˜Ž they fact I could even DO this was due to their, perhaps misplaced TRUST.

  10. It DID occur to me lack of participation may be down to many not having photos / Polaroids in digital format available for posting and no easily accessible scanner to consider doing so and with that in mind just a thought........ These days for the most part one could likely use a tablet or phone camera as these are so common to just take a picture of an original photo or Polaroid, MY image I started with was actually just taken with an older tablet camera of a Polaroid. IF any of you have a photo in mind consider that method, just be wary of reflective light and FOCUS as much as possible, I think you might be surprised how easily this can be done. I am considering doing some more of my own this way ๐Ÿ˜›
  11. Dug this up just now and thought this might make for something different. Post a photo / picture / image that you are in showing something silly, fun, retro etc. I'll kick off with this one - Here's me at 16 getting a promo Polaroid picture before seeing JAWS. Honestly, I love this shot and there is as far as I am concerned only one embarrassing thing about it, IT WAS FOR JAWS 3 ! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™„
  12. Happy Canada Day EH! To all my Canadian brothers and sisters ! ๐Ÿ๐Ÿป
