  1. I'm sorry to hear it. I'm a loyal subscriber to your channel. Fan for life. If it's ok to ask, let me know where you will be posting updates. Thank you Willie for all you do
  2. Oh what a great game! I had forgotten about this one. Alley Cat.
  3. You ever do a "Omega, line 3. Omega, call on line 3" with that phone on the left? Because that's what I'd do all day to annoy everyone around me.
  4. How about this casino ad that has 2600 Donkey Kong stock sounds?
  5. NERD ALERT! Here's one of me in 1986.
  6. Kind of....I have a custom cartridge version of "M.U.L.E." for the Atari computers. I bought it on ebay a long long time ago. Maybe 20 years. It was one of those things that once I knew it existed, I *had* to have it. I probably paid way too much for it back then. But MULE is one of my all-time favorite games. It remains one of my favorite items in my collection.
  7. An addendum to my blog post with a bit more about me: I never had a Colecovision in the 80's. However, I drooled over them in the stores. I remember being totally blown away by the pack-in game "Donkey Kong" on the demo unit at my local "Payless" store. At the time, there was a choice for gamers for the latest system: The Atari 5200 or the Colecovision. As much as I love Atari, I would have chosen the Colecovision in a heartbeat. It had more unique games and they looked great. My next system after my Atari 2600 was the Commodore VIC-20, which I loved. I did get a CV about 15
  8. I will take a new picture of mine as soon as I've done a little 3D printing.
  9. Absolutely deceptive. Many products do this nowadays to keep the cost the same. They simply reduce the amount of what you're buying, but keep the packaging size the same. I call it "hidden inflation".
  10. I printed it as a booklet too! And also the strip. I'm gonna want to know where that "Fire" button is!
  11. For this second-run unit, the price was $200 + $30 shipping (from Canada). It has been a while, so I may be off plus/minus $10. I believe it is a fair price, and I'm sure the creators do not make much per unit.
  12. OK. I will give it a try this weekend. I like this "featured game" idea very much. Thanks!
  13. Do you think this will work with my FlashROM99?
  14. A new RickR Blog entry:
     

     

  15. What is it? It's a modern rendition of the classic Colecovision. It has a cartridge port and will play all of the original cartridge games. In addition, it has an SD card slot and can run Colecovision ROM files. It also has an Atari 2600 core to run Atari ROMs. Real Colecovision controllers work with it, and it also has a Super Nintendo socket to use a SNES gamepad. And it has HDMI output for use on modern TV's. It comes with the "super game module" built in -- so you can use the latest improved homebrew games with no issue. Willie at ArcadeUSA has a very good review up on Youtube,
  16. That's it! Great game, I hope @nosweargamerreviews it someday.
  17. June 1 works for me. I'm not sure what I'll do, but I'm sure I can come up with something interesting.
