  1. Hey guys, look! My dad has been reunited with his childhood system, the Odyssey 2! Only other person I know who grew up with one is @nosweargamer. This thing rocks! I love it so much!  
    My dad is looking for a few games in particular. If anyone has duplicates for the system, please DM me.

      @nosweargamer seems like the type of collector to have duplicates of Air Raid.

      In all seriousness, thanks for looking.

      @nosweargamer anything he had as a kid, like Armored Encounter/Sub Chase, War of Nerves, Matchmaker/Logix/Buzzword, Volleyball, Pocket Billiards, and Computer Golf. That’s all I can remember now. He also wants Alpine Skiing, which he said he always wanted as a kid but never got.

      As for me, I’m pretty happy with what I have right now for the time being. Eventually I’d like to get Alien Invaders Plus, KC’s Krazy Chase, and ESPECIALLY Electronic Table Soccer. But for right now, I’m pretty pleased with what we all have.

      What an awesome system this is!

  3. Goodbye, Woody. You were a great little system. I had you for only a year but we got to know each other so well. Now you must go back to your original owner. Farewell.

      Oh my. I told him it was national Pac-Man day today (he doesn’t know he’s getting this) and he said that he got it for Easter when it first came out. I guess he’s getting it for Easter again!

      Of course! I’d go crazy without one. I’m using my tried and true Vader model, which I’ve used a lot more. The Woody I’ve kept in use too, but used it as much as this one. Plus, it’s a lot more iconic and a better one to give away.

      Here are the games I’m giving away too ( @RickR already knows as many of them are from him). The case is made by yours truly:

      What do you think? Is this a good Easter present?

      I can see your criticisms and I agree that Starmaster did it better (I can’t speak for Voyager as I don’t have the manual and can’t figure it out), but for what it is, I think Raiders is really great!

  12. Recent pickups.

    I've been wanting Colecovision "One on One" for a long time.  It's the crappiest version of one of my favorite games. 

    The Lynx SD cart is just plain awesome.

  13. Wish me luck on this Starmaster contest I'm a part of. If I win, I might be able to win the first ever USED copy of Circus Convoy. So far in I'm in the lead, but it's anyone's game with two days left. Knock on wood.

      I'm playing 2600 Star Raiders right now when I should be practicing! I've never really played this in the year I've owned it.

  14. It's an Atari 2600 day.  I'm using my Jr. with the little CRT and testing out the Gemstik (it works!)  Next up is a try at Decathlon using the Asteroids button controller.

      I’m going to try for that patch. This is a great game. However I know I’m going to feel this tomorrow.

      First score and YIKES! I’m bad. But I did well at the 1500m I think. Almost got the musical tribute. @RickR wins the first round!

      I was thinking we could compete using the final score after a full decathlon. Best out of three. Or if you want we could do a specific event.

      Don’t worry! I have yet to score a single point on the pole vault.

      You have a pluscart? Cool!

      My sisters copy of Ocarina of Time came in at the game store so we picked it up on our road trip. And I saw this and had to pick it up.

      Glad the Gemstick works. Don’t go on and break it with Decathlon now!

      Do you want to do a 2 player battle with this game?

  19. I don’t know what brought it on, but today I really miss my grandfather. He could have still been here had he held on for just a few more days. I’m sorry for bothering anyone, I just felt like I needed to tell somebody.

      I’m sorry about your dad, @RickR. I’m certain he’s looking down on you as well. The deceased live on in our memories and the stories we share about them.

      Yes, and that has been tripping me up a little bit! But there are now some dots at the top of the screen you can click to edit and delete, so no biggie.

      A small price to pay for the sleek new design. Thanks, Justin!
