      @Sabertooth, I'm going to go ahead and grab the Fatal Run and Ninja Golf carts after seeing your great pics.  Just thought I'd ask first if you know of any coupon codes for this weekend  🙂

      Do you happen to have (and it is OK to say no) a list of upcoming high-score challenge games?  Purchase them now while they are on sale!  PM me if the list is better off kept private 🙂 

      Some real bargains there...Tempest 4000 for $4!  Still, I don't know which are worthwhile and which are stinkers. 

      Thanks very much for posting this notice and the list.

  3. It's been 366 days since my "last chance" order was placed at Atari Age. Happy anniversary!

      "Had I known" is the key phrase.  I totally agree.

      This sucks and I'm sorry.  It is very frustrating.  I always felt like it would have been nice to know there would be a long wait when ordering, but that wasn't disclosed until after money had changed hands.

  5. I haven't been here in way too long.  Unfortunately, things have not been well.

    The person who introduced me to the joy of the Atari 2600, my mother, passed away on September 9th, 2021 at the age of 71.

    She will be forever remembered as the reason I love Atari, but even moreso as a loving mother to me.

    I love you, mom.

      I'm so sorry about the loss of your mom.  It isn't ever easy.  Hold on to those good memories as those can never be taken away from you.

  6. The Day came two days ago -- the day when I traded in my PS1, 2, and 4 collection. They had been sitting in storage bins for about a year. I sold some to two local gamers last year before I took the rest in to Pink Gorilla. I just came back from picking up the trade-in check. I actually got back a little more than expected, so I'm grateful for that. I've been a long-time customer, and that played a part (said the co-owner).

    I still have OG Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, and Nintendo Switch games (along with various handhelds). I have a particular fondness for the PS3 and Xbox360 as that was the generation when I returned to console gaming full time. I'll probably make another sizable trade-in before the year is out.

  7. 🤩 I was just notified by Stone Age Gamer that I won their 7800 + GameDrive bundle giveaway! Great way to start the summer! Kudos to SAG for doing the drawing as soon as the giveaway ended yesterday.

      WOW!  Congrats.  I always wondered if anyone actually won those giveaways. 

      What an awesome bundle.  Enjoy!

      Great game.  I've been enjoying that one on cart a lot. 

       

  9. I received email from AtariAge yesterday that my Last Chance orders have shipped! They shipped in two boxes and USPS is supposed to deliver one of them tomorrow. The other is coming via UPS.

    I placed three orders last June and July. I always believed it would take a long time for Al to fulfill the orders. My dream was getting them by Christmas last year, but I always figured a more realistic target would be June. So in my mind, they're right on time 🙂 I know many people have been anxious and a little upset with Al on how these orders have been handled.

  10. I apologize for the radio silence but I had to leave town due to an emergency. No show tomorrow as a result. Back in a few weeks. I hope to see you then!

      Cool.  Can't say I've ever seen a blue label like that.

  16. Hey everybody, check out my Unicorn for sale HERE.

  17. Well, the new machine arrived today.  Much to my chagrin, the DVD drive is an external drive that is connected via USB.  I'll have to find a way to set it on the top part of the machine.  Maybe I'll use velcro.

      So weird.  It is hard to find a case with an optical drive bay anymore.

  19. Well, the time has come to replace my desktop computer.  I have stretched its life as much as possible but no the DVD drive doesn't work, none of the USB ports work, it freezes when I try to copy and paste files...  I had not realized how old this machine was!  I've had it since 2011!  I believe it has provided me with good service for 13 years! 

    So, I just ordered a new monster computer from Dell.  I9 processor, 64 GB RAM, 4 TB hard in two hard drives, liquid cooling...the works.  Hopefully it lasts as long as this one!  LOL  I did get the extended warranty for the next 4 years.  The one thing I hate is having to transfer data from one computer to the other.  Thankfully, most of my stuff is backed up online, so that will make it easier to restore files.  But setting up programs is going to be a PITA!!!!  Wish me luck!

    1. RickR

      RickR

      Sounds like you got a really nice one.  And yes, doing the transfer is kind of painful.  Once you get that done, though...it's a lot of fun to enjoy all the new features and speed.

  20. Ron Howard is 70 today!  What is your favorite Ron Howard role?  Opie, Steve from American Grafitti, Richie Cunningham, or any multitude of other parts?
