  1. Wow, no one has posted here in nearly a year? That changes now.

    Major Havoc is one of my favorite Arcade Games. I've seen the cabinet in person but never played because it was broken at the time. I have become well acquainted with this game with Atari Anthology on Xbox. This great platformer/shooter/breakout? hybrid deserves more love and attention. What are your thoughts on the game?

    Great commercial. It's so great because it's true. Back from the days when video games were "rec room" items marketed to the entire family. We should see more of this. 

    Atari is always better with other people. Try playing something like Outlaw, Air-Sea Battle, or Combat by yourself!

    I had a Virtual Boy once and actually enjoyed it.  Mario Tennis and Galactic Pinball were my favorites.  I had Wario Woods or World (??), too.  I think I found Red Alert on clearance.  Actually, I remember getting all of it on clearance for $30 from Toys R Us I believe in Arkansas when I visited my mother decades ago.  I wish I still had one.  I loved it.

    I know this thread is old but I just wanted to say this. The game you are referring to is Virtual Boy Wario Land, technically the second game in the series. The gameplay falls more in line with the first game than the sequels with the hat mechanic from Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3 making its first and only return.

    He could of, but outside of Parker Brothers, these were pretty obscure companies. Also, I don't recall the manuals or boxes saying "licensed from" or "Copyright" other company, like is typical when that officially happened. You can see Atari credited both Coleco & Nintendo on their Donkey Kong.

    You have a good point there. I never noticed that.

    Nice! Vader models look cool. I don’t have a desk but I like playing sitting on the floor with the controller on the floor. That means the TV stand can’t be too tall so that’s the challenge. 

    Only problem with the vader model is that dust shows up really easily. I clean it out weekly. When I'm not using it for a while I'll put on the dust cover, but that hasn't been the case recently as I've been playing a lot of Defender, Pac-Man, and Tunnel Runner.

  6. Can't take picture as my phone's memory is full but I have a few:

     

     

    Space Cavern from Kay-Bee

    Towering Inferno from Kay-Bee

    Wizard of Wor from Kohl's

    Chopper Command from Shopko

    Gangster Alley (yuck) from Kohl's for $29.99

    Planet Patrol from Kohl's for $29.99 as well

    I don't have a 3DS.  Looking at videos of the game, it looks cool.  I have the Flintstones BurgerTime game, though.  🙂  I like that this Deluxe game gets colorized on the GBC and GBA.

    I highly recommend you purchase a 3DS, if for nothing else than to play Metroid: Samus Returns. Speaking of M:SR, another great GB game to have is the original version of that game, Metroid II: Return of Samus.

    Yes, forgot that Starmaster uses the switches. Game compatibility/playability gave me the perfect reason to get a 2600, and I'm very happy to have gotten a six switch 2600.

    I own two 2600s, both four-switch models: vader and woody. I use the vader model mostly. It matches my desk and I've always liked playing 2600 with the joystick set down on a table or something.
