    Your first car

    I had a POS 4 door 72 Chevy Nova that got handed down to me. My friends were embarrassed to be seen in that car. The best thing about the car was because it was such a POS I used to go flying down this one country road that had a hill that I would floor it and go airborne.
  2. I don't get the appeal of what will amount to a watered down version of Bubble Bobble on the 2600. If I'm too lazy to fire this game up on my MAME cabinet then I can play an OK version on the NES. Take Princess Rescue and Zippy: while they may be fine games by 2600 standards they are still inferior to playing these games on the NES and Sega Genesis, respectively. Bubble Bobble on the 2600 will result in a simplified version of the arcade game: probably have less boards, less elements (enemies and prizes) on the screen and the audio effects will be inferior as well.
  3. My #1 gaming passion is arcade games. First one I played was Pong in 1975. In the late 70s/early 80s I would frequent the mall arcade or the bowling alley game room. I would play video games, projector games, electromechanical games and pinball. Plus the mall arcade environment was electric. You can't get all that from a home console. Which is why when I got my Atari 2600 in 1980 it was simply a gaming fix for when I couldn't get to the arcade. My favorite games are those released in the golden age of arcade gaming which IMO ended with the laser disc games. I think the only arcade game I played beyond 1984 was Arkanoid as I began playing a lot of pinball in the mid to late 80s. I have no interest in console gaming beyond the NES or Atari 7800 with the exceptions of Crazy Taxi, Daytona USA and Pac-Man Museum on the 360.
  4. I'm hoping that you could do turbo full time so I don't have to constantly keep my finger on the fire button. I'm guessing that thru the difficulty switches you could set full time turbo and an option to enable turbo via fire button. I just downloaded the ROM onto my Harmony cart and played it on my 2600. Homie don't do emulation.
  5. Add turbo option and it's the best 2600 game of all time https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zXYNgl8sCUw
  6. I downloaded this and the latest version of Star Castle. I'll be playing both of these tonight.
  7. They're still home brews. I didn't select any games that were e.g. conversions of MSX or SG-1000 games to the ColecoVision.
  8. Just cuz it isn't on my list doesn't mean it's a bad game. Juno First is a good pick although I've had problems with that game on my Atari 7800 with it crashing all the time. It doesn't crash when I play on my 2600 Jr.
  9. Here are my picks...discuss! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9xhvmzdA_A
  10. I played pacman battle Royale 9 rounds against my son and lost and then 9 rounds against my daughter and won. Oh and I got 2 pristine issues of Electronic Games from 1982 today. Damn I love that magazine the best there ever was for video games way back when. I read those things front to back even thE ads.

    foxbat

    Nov 82 issue of Electronic Games states that the release of Raiders was replacing a game called Foxbat. Do we know anything about this game called Foxbat?
  12. I'm going to buy Star Castle Arcade when it's ready. I might throw Space Rocks in with that order.
