    Anyone know if JUSTIN our site / community creator is OK? Concerned with the chaos of Hurricane Ian in Florida. I attempted to message him here and INSTAGRAM and noticed he had not visited here in a while so just wondering. Hope is is well. 🙁🤷‍♂️

    We welcomed "Babytooth Retro" into the world this morning just before 6:00 am. Mom and baby girl are healthy and sleeping. I'm taking the time to improve my swaddle.  😅
    I may not be as active in the coming weeks but will keep ClubVCS rolling.

    Hello, world! It's been a while -- too long, actually. It's been a busy and crazy spring. Hopefully I can chill during the summer. That I/O pizza party thang should help 🙂 

    As for the busy and craziness, at work, I manage the digital management rollout on Pluto TV. It's a huge project that involves pretty much every team -- lots of fires, drama 😂. It should wind down a lot by end of July.
    On the personal front, my father passed away on Apr 1. This is the first time that I shared this online. He was diagnosed in late 2020 with interstitial lung disease which we knew was terminal. He seemed to be doing ok, and we thought that he'd be with us for a few more years. But his time came, and he went quickly and peacefully, and for that, I am thankful.
    Given all these things and my increased involvement with my church, my online presence and gaming time have suffered. But I am going to make a concerted effort to hang out here again to chill. The I/O has always been good to me, and it's a great tight community.
    Game on! 🕹️🤘

    PSA: It looks like Gamestop is getting out of the VCS business. The All-In Onyx Edition is cut to $99.
    That's an AMD Ryzen mini-PC with 2 controllers for $99.  Even if you were going to tinker or use it as an emulation station, it's a heck of a deal.

    Sorry for the downer, I don't post these like I use to but this one is pretty big imho. RIP Michael Lee Aday aka Meat Loaf. Sad, I am not too surprised though as seeing him in a recent interview he was not looking good. He pushed himself a lot. He will be remembered through his music.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS - Sure I have posted before but it just came up in Facebook memories even though it's obviously much older 😆so seemed fitting to share again today since it is one of the few good childhood memories, believe me I was VERY happy just getting these at the time - That year when I got Coleco Galaxian and Pac Man mini arcades. 😆😎🕹️Also this image is so of it's time with the huge cabinet TV all the brown and gaudy decorations. Still fond memories for me though.

    I've finally completed all challenges in single player mode for Black Widow Recharged on the Atari VCS! It was probably the most satisfying gaming achievement of 2021 for me. 
    The VCS version has 40 challenges, compared to 30 in other versions of the game. The 10 VCS exclusive challenges were among the most difficult in the game. There were definitely some controller throwing moments! 
    What were your most satisfying gaming victories of 2021?!

    PSA: The new Atari VCS is on sale at Microcenter for $249. This in-store only promotion nets you the Black Walnut All-In edition. Retailers elsewhere remain at full price ($399). 
    If you're curious or need a new mini-PC and live near a Microcenter, now could be a good time.

    Been playing the new Centipede: Recharged on the Atari VCS for the past few hours. It's actually a cool modern interpretation on the classic. It has an endless arcade mode, 30 unlockable challenges, achievements, and local Co-op. Also, the music is stunning. 
    It's available on all major console platforms - Xbox, PS4/5, Switch, Steam (PC) - via digital tomorrow.  Based on the VCS version, I'd say it's well worth the $9.99 if you have any of those platforms and are a fan of the original.

    Thank you, @Justin, for your kind words and for bringing back the High Score Challenge. The Suzuka track is very challenging and was often frustrating lol. I was fortunate to win the 2021 Grand Prix.
