  1. The Mandalorian is a really, really good show! It has just enough of spaghetti western in it while keeping to the Star Wars universe. While the middle episodes slow down a tad, the last few really pick up and set the table for Season 2. The musical score is amazing! The list of guest stars is pretty impressive.
  2. A good complement to this article would be the documentary titled "Atari: Game Over". The 66-minute doc focuses on the 1983 video game crash along with the unearthing of some E.T. cartridges.
  3. Do you mean an actual Kindle device? Because I use the app on my Mac.
  4. I just downloaded all three to my Kindle. Thanks!!
  5. Super Mario Land for the SNES!

  6. I've been around but unable to visit this particular site recently. Firefox prevented access and gave me a warning that this site would install malicious software or something like that. I tried Safari & Chrome but to no avail. I'm here now, though, so I'm confused as to what happened.

      Hi Marco! The non-forums part of the site has been having some security issues lately. See this thread:

      https://forums.atari.io/topic/4465-atari-io-malware-security-warning-issue/

      It brings up a warning for even the forums much of the time. When I use my phone browser no warnings appear, so that's how I've been using the site lately. 

  7. I hope those who are in California are safe from the fires that continue to rage throughout the state. The winds appear stronger this year, making it more challenging for firefighters to contain the fires.

  8. Congratulations to @nads on his perfect 300 on 2600 Bowling!

      Cheers Marco!

  9. The show went well despite a few hiccups which I expected. (It was my 1st streamed show in 3 months, almost to the day.) Nonetheless, I was excited & happy to be back.

     

    Now to get back to retro gaming itself.

     

    Wait, it's Wednesday! Chat night, yes? See you there!

  10. Episode 18 of Retro With Marco is just a few mins away! I hope you stop by & say hi in the chat!

  11. I thought I would be able to return sooner but that didn’t happen due to all of the non-gaming stuff which consumed my daily schedule. I then decided that I wouldn’t return until I was sure I could do so without rescheduling/canceling.

    Life has slowed down to where I can return to retro gaming and return to Twitch with a new episode of Retro With Marco! I hope you will join me this Tuesday, October 15 at 9pm ET / 6pm PT when I will have the following:

    - High score and speedrun shoutouts

    - The Toshiba Pasopia & the recent tape dumps

    - A quick look at Arkandenoid for the C64

    My plan for the show is to return to the bi-weekly schedule but I will keep everyone updated here, on Discord, and on other social media.

    See you then!

      I was just thinking of you Marco! Great to see you return! I will do my very best to join you this Tuesday at 9PM 🙌

      Thanks, Justin! I hope you can make it. It'll be good to get back to streaming and retro gaming.

  12. Hello again! Here's the latest on my end:

     

    All of the non-gaming stuff in my life ramped up significantly to where I postponed my Twitch show on a few occasions.

     

    While work was rather hectic, it was still going well. However, it remained hectic throughout these summer months; I had to do a double-take when I realized it was the 2nd half of August.

     

    Unrelated, but no less important: I went for a Wellness Visit (Physical) for the first time in far too long. I went for the proverbial full tune-up including a tetanus shot. (Wow, that part really sucked. I'm not going to sugarcoat it at all. You feel it for 2-3 days, and my body sure felt it.) The good news is that all of my vitals are normal and test results were negative. So let this serve as a reminder: Be sure to get a check-up especially if you're getting up there in age like I am.

     

    I was hoping to stream an episode before an upcoming trip but that won't happen, unfortunately. I realized that I really hadn't kept up on any retro gaming news and world records, and I'd rather get back into the swing of things before getting back on Twitch. I had to put the MGL aside (I started off well but would have likely faded given the list of games chosen for this quarter, but I was having a lot of fun).

     

    I'm glad to see that atari.io is still up and running smoothly and that the community here remains positive. I look forward to joining a Wednesday night chat in the near future.

      Good to see you back! 

      The shingles vaccine did the same to me.  Dose 1 was no problem.  But dose 2 knocked me on my rear end for a day.  Had to call in sick to work.  But totally worth it to get that clean bill of health.

       

  13. Wow, I'd love to try this on a 7800 emulator but I'm not sure I could pull it off.
  14. Episode 17 of Retro With Marco airs TONIGHT at 9pm ET!

    I'm putting the final touches on tonight's episode, which will include:

    1. High score and speedrun shoutouts
    2. Recap of the Retro World Series at the Southern Fried Gaming Expo
    3. GameStop going retro?

     

    Tune in tonight at 9pm ET / 6pm PT!

    See you then!

  15. MGL Update: I'm hanging in there given that Game #3 is Bubbles - A game I never played in arcades. I find the game very frustrating.

     

    Anyway, here's a fun :07 game play clip of Mr. Do! This is titled "I CALLED BANK"
