  1. Thanks

    Very cool to hear an open minded, honest opinion. 
    I am making a discord for my channel. Can I share it there? (Or you can too if you want to join. I'm still working on it, so I haven't revealed it on my channel yet https://discord.com/invite/KDR3w6Z5 )

    So it was "launch day" for the Atari VCS and you can now order the PC-console hybrid online from Atari or Best Buy, or if you live near a Micro Center, pick one up locally. 
    Despite what I said in the immediately preceding post, I succumbed to an intoxicating blend of morbid curiosity, nostalgia and FOMO; I picked one up back in late February from the eBay.
    Three months in, I can say that I'm very impressed with the build and the content so far.  More importantly, this has a lot of flexibility. Sure, it's a relatively low powered mini-PC, but the combination of content from the Atari store, upgradeability (mine is now 1tb with 32gb ram) and ability to run virtually any OS makes it a winner in my book.
    Even if Atari stopped supporting it tomorrow, it would be the sexiest emulation box out there. But the thing is, the stuff Atari is coming up with is actually pretty great. Plus the rotary on the joystick is amazing. It's easily my most played system. 
    Best game: Three-way Tie
    Jetboard Joust
    Thrustlander (rotary control is a dream)
    Danger Scavenger
    Best App: 
    Antstream Arcade

    I know there are a lot of naysayers but I'm looking forward to getting mine.

    This looks like a huge improvement over the SMB Game & Watch from last year (which was pretty awesome) because it includes 4 games.  Wow!  I definitely want one of these.

    I haven’t experienced any problems with my Windows PC. Mostly because I’m still running Windows Vista in 2021 and I’m proud of it! I refuse to switch over to 10 because I’m a stubborn person.

    Since this is a real friendly place to hang out, my hope was to make a portion of it an oasis for friendly TI'ers.  Well, as the old saying goes,  "You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make it drink".  With the lack of participation, it's obvious I've failed in my task.  Sorry, I tried, but it's time for me to give up.

    It does work, and there are advantages.  They finally did add in shipping discounts, which is nice.  But the fees are still too high.

    Well, I was finally forced to switch over. I sold one game as a test, and just got paid today. Now to wait and make sure the money comes in before I list more.
