  1. PS3 Controllers aint cheap! Nice trash haul
  2. That IS a great price and idea (providing your own shell). I'd love to see a pic when yours comes in.
  3. BTW I did sub. Hope you do more INTV reviews. It deserves some quality reviews by people who do their homework. Most of the reviews are people who don't bother reading manuals and like to complain about the controller a lot. *cough*8-bitEric*cough*
  4. You did a great job reviewing it, but I gotta be honest. When they first posted about this on that other Atari site, I thought it was a joke. I can see I was wrong, and there was a demand for it...but they could not have possibly picked something less interesting to me. And then to charge $60? I can get a vintage pong machine for less than that. I'm definitely open to the idea of getting some homebrews after I get my original release collection where I want it, but my attention is drawn to some of the new, creative titles people come up with. Truth be told, Atari's homebrew community seems to be the most original, creative bunch. Most of what I see for INTV and Colecovision are just ports.
  5. This guy's channel is dedicated to restoring and customizing Hot Wheels cars, and its oh so satisfying to watch.
  6. Attracting more forum members in general would be key. Now that I have our new art, it can't hurt for us to set up something however! It's a matter of cataloging our stock.
  7. Your other option is, of course, make the customer pay shipping. But for common games, I'm sure they are hard to move like that.
  8. I often wonder how some people make any money off of selling single commons like that. It never seemed worth the effort to me, but I figured you had a system. What I do with Atari is bundle up the games and keep them where I can still ship First Class, so usually 4 game lots. I try to put in one uncommon or at least highly desired common in each lot. My starting price is generally the price of the most expensive game in the lot's normal ebay sold listing price. (So if its Pitfall II, starting bid $15) I have moved several lots like this, but I usually don't get lots of bids. The same would apply for me selling PS2, XBox360, Wii, or any type other than Nintendo when I get overloaded with commons.
  9. That demo cart almost makes up for that lot having Donkey Kong (which wont even work on the INTV II). That's a great find for sure!
  10. Can't argue with that list at all. Intellivision misfired (much like Atari) on their pack-in as far as showing off their systems, but I can see how Poker & Blackjack might have swung a few fathers over to it's side. Nintendo kept it up on their pack-ins with newer versions of Mario Brothers always being quality and also utilizing each new system's new features. I have heard that the Switch's pack in game is almost insulting, however.
  11. I'm almost positive that Joe paid Albert to make the 20 copies he had, so I'm sure it's possible to make another batch if there was enough interest.
  12. Joe buys them in small batches, so 20 is all that have been made for now. Sounds like it is a total blast, and I love the review! Thanks for posting
  13. One of the YouTube channels I subscribe to get those Japanese snack "loot crate" boxes every month. For some reason I find it fascinating.
  14. That's the price point they need to shoot for. $50 range will sell these units. I like it!
  15. I think the threads just got merged I kinda want a ZedX Spectrum, honestly.
  16. Sometimes I trade and occasionally buy from individuals on Facebook, so I figured it needed to have its own thread. I'll start the bidding high with this beauty I got from a cash/trade in IntellivisionInvasion facebook. The other overlay is in terrible shape, but this was an amazing pickup for me all things considered! Me likey!
  17. Stay Frosty 2 is a Spiceware game, and he's legit.
  18. I thought there were roms of about everything! I'm not a big homebrew guy, mainly because of price...but Star Castle tempts me. It looks mighty nice.
  19. Fascinating stuff! Great to see the love for the TI-99 alive and well. Looks like it was a good time
