    Did you also know that it was a "port" of "Star Castle", an awesome vector classic by Tim Skelly of Cinematronics?  Well, at least it was the same idea, according to HSW.

    Hello friends,  another day, another video!  This one is really quick (and low-quality, MP4).  It is my extremely brief coverage of the severely over-crowded 2013 Maker Faire in the Bay Area.  Enjoy.

    Hi all, I'm very new to this forum, but I'm already staring to really like it!
     
    I also have a YouTube channel.  Here's my current motto:  It's not about what's there now, it's about what will be there, once I get things set up!
     
    My channel is the same as my name on this forum (and on XBox Live, PSN, and just about everywhere else):  Arcade Dude 44
    I'm really looking forward to being a member in this awesome community.

    Arcade Dude 44 got a reaction from Lost Dragon in No love at all for the 5200?   
    Hi all, this is my first post (I just logged-in to this awesome site for the first time, about 30 seconds ago!).  Here's my take on the Atari 5200.  Back around 82, I was thrilled to get a new ColecoVision.  I had a few games for it.  i later heard about Atari's new console.  I was really intrigued, but our finances (I am the youngest of 4 children, and I was 11 at this time) didn't allow me to even think of owning another new console.  Well, my brother talked me into returning my beloved ColecoVision and then purchasing a 5200 Supersystem.  I caved in, and a bus-ride to Cerrito's Mall later (I grew up in Long Beach, CA), I returned my CV (kept the games) and went over to Toys-R-Us and picked up a 5200.  I think I got Star Raiders and maybe 1 more game, I can't recall.  Of course it came with Super Breakout.  Well, I got it home, and was amazed!  I stayed up all night playing Star Raiders and loving it (even those so-called "horrible" controllers)!  Did I miss my CV?  Sure, but I didn't regret my decision.  Fast-forward many years, when I moved out, ALL of my gaming/computer collection (I had amassed a LOT, by '98) was stolen!  Well, now I am in the process of building a serious collection (many systems and arcade games, even a couple of pins).  And the Atari 5200 is definately part of it!  I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I actually really like the 5200 analog controllers!  They aren't too difficult to rebuild, and with the Rev-9/"Gold" parts in them, they are even more awesome!  I have a Trac-Ball that I opened last year when I met Dan Kramer and he was kind enough to sign both the box, as well as the controller itself!   Happy gaming my Atari friends...

    Hello fellow users.
     
    My apologies for not listing this sooner, but the Atari Party hits Davis this Saturday! I plan to dig out my modded Falcon setup and my 800xl & bring em out! My buddy, Lou is bringing his IDE emu setup to hook up (most every 8-bit Atari game there), along with some CX-40 joysticks.  Its a fun time, lots of cool classic gaming for all...I hope some of you can make it!

    Awesome Justin, I just watched your video!  Wow, those repro CX-40 Joysticks look great!  I was discouraged, a friend of mine & myself were talking about the planned rebuild of a bunch of "junk" CX-40s at our Commodore Meeting last Sunday, and he informed me that Best (a local Atari parts house) is now out of stock on some of the parts, with others (handle) on a strict 1-item per customer (not per order)!  Once I get my gaming/computer "museum" up & running, I'll probably have to get a bunch of those.

    Man, I had totally forgotten those awesome "CYOA" books! I recall one actually had you write in the isbn code on the spline (which every book has, sort of like a serial #), with a cool name for it (using "isbn" as it's acronym)! I need to add some of those to my collection, my kids would get a kick out of those, as well.
