  1. That's a nice use of a Rasp Pi
  2. https://youtu.be/0O1OrTcfqBI You'll spot moments from Gran Trak 10, Pole Position, Out Run (or maybe it's Rad Racer?) and Ridge Racer
  3. Good to see you back friend! Also good to see the Wii U receive praise when it's due. Splatoon is a great addition the Nintendo family of franchises.
  4. Great article. I miss what Adult Swim used to be. Maybe I'm getting older. It doesn't hold the appeal that it once did.
  5. My first car was a 1985 Audi Quattro. They were great cars. BBC's Ashes to Ashes made the Quattro look extra cool
  6. The level design of Mario games is usually simple, gradually teaching the player what they should be doing. Ideas are introduced in a safe space, and then the safety nets are removed so the player can put those lessons into action before the challenges become more complex. In this video Miyamoto walks through World 1-1, and you get to see that design philosophy in action.
  7. Good point. I wonder why Atari never had the balls to build something like that?
  8. Mario Maker looks like its going to be incredible. Imagine if we would have had this in the 80s. Honestly I'm really looking forward to this.
  9. Another Steve Jobs movie is ready to go October 9. This is the one based on Walter Isaacson's biography and written by Aaron Sorkin, starring Michael Fassbender and Seth Rogen. From the official trailer it doesn't look like we're going to see Jobs' time at Atari on the big screen, but the movie does feel much more serious than previous films.
  10. Happy Birthday, David Byrne.

  11. Thoughts: Where would the collector world be without clear plastic tubs?
  12. @MaximumRD whoa I don't think anybody for one second thought negatively of you, or that you were trying to fool anyone or play a joke. You're revered in these forums. I think everyone thought you were just posting the news of what's going on. That being said it's hard not to see the similarities in design between 7800 Centipede and Millipede, or to dismiss the fact that we are two days away from April Fools Day and the guys on that site have a history of epic April Fools jokes. Which is always okay in the end, because April Fools Day is benevolent and as long as everyone owns up to it in t
  13. Also look at the Millipede graphic on the home screen. It's a hack of the Centipede logo used on the 7800 Centipede game, which indicates a higher liklihood of a homebrew or hack of the original game. The Millipede logo was always substantially different as seen below:
  14. Atari 7800 Millipede Photos: I'm going to be a cynic and point out how close we are to April Fools Day and how much this looks like a hack of 7800 Centipede. They have a history of doing this sort of thing over there... Someone will announce a long lost proto has been found, then say April Fools, then announce it's a homebrew currently in development by a member. All in good fun. I'd love to see an original 7800 Millipede proto found though. We'll have to wait and see what happens, I'd hope Tempest at http://www.AtariProtos.com could verify it's authenticity.
  15. I clicked on the video just to check it out for a sec and ended up watching the whole thing! More stuff like this please.
  16. @leolinden I saw you have a YouTube page.. can you make a video of what you're working on and put it on your YouTube so we can see?
  17. Kung Food has one of the craziest premises of any game I've seen on an Atari system. Maybe only 2nd to Ninja Golf. Collision detection is horrible though so if yours is mint you might want to keep it that way. Here's a CGR review on the game
  18. Actually.. that a pretty cool idea.. What would keep it from being common carts that everybody has?
  19. Welcome to the forums leolinden :thumbsup: AGREED. I would avoid this. I know you're young and money is hard-earned but it's best to do this the right way. Find a real Atari 2600 in decent shape and work out a deal. If you take care of it it'll give you a lifetime of enjoyment and memories.
