  1. The original Sony PlayStation wasn't the only gaming hardware to see a September '95 North American release...

    Happy 25th to the Atari Jaguar CD!  Only 11 official titles were released on the platform and a meager 20,000 units are reported to have been produced. 

    Celebrate the launch of the doomed Atari Jaguar peripheral with this montage of the 11 official releases, Virtual Light Machine and more!

      I remember waiting almost two years for this to drop

      @Justin I can totally relate!  Besides the Sega Dreamcast, the Jaguar CD was my only day-one hardware purchase.  I have to admit, standing there at Electronics Boutique with the Saturn and newly released PS1 on display, I definitely had second thoughts.  But I reasoned, if Atari is releasing the hardware, surely that means they're intending to support it until the Jaguar 2 was ready, right?  They also had the mock-up of the Jag-Duo at E3 that year and the deal with Virtuality.  Little did we know that with Sam falling ill, Jack would fast-track Atari's exit from the hardware business leaving the new peripheral basically unsupported. 

      Still, we got the VLM, Battlemorph, IS2 and Hoverstrike:UC out of the deal.  Plus the add-on was critical to early homebrew development until cheaper options for carts were made available. 

  2. I picked up a Samsung GX TV in working order and decent cosmetic condition. I remember when these came out and it's as ridiculous now as it was then!

    Pretty pumped on the sound and picture.

      SWEET!  I've had my eye out for one of those, but never found one in the wild.  Nice pickup!

       

  3. I thought that I'd share my first attempt at a teaser video for my upcoming channel. It's really an exercise in figuring out the video editor LOL!

    Can you name the games that I captured?

      Yo!  Very well done.  I'm not just being nice.  I can see that you're taking your time and getting it just right.

      Looks nice! Expect a regular viewer! I'm always on the lookout for new retro channels and this looks great!

      This is an awesome image. I'm going to retweet and repost your accounts on our social media, hopefully get you a few well deserved followers.

      @Justin -- Just an FYI.  This is what the status updates with Twitter links look like on my desktop.  They look fine on my phone.

      @RickR - I generally use my phone so I never noticed. Thanks for the heads up! 

    3. RickR

      RickR

      Yeah, it's weird.  And if I click on the twitter link, it just completely blanks out. 

      Probably just a quirk of my PC or browser.

      I gotta agree that Demon Attack is tops! I do love some Atlantis, Dragonfire and Moonsweeper though!

      The entire Imagic library is outstanding.  Star Voyager is another favorite.

      Cosmic Ark and Trick Shot.  I've spent the most time with those two.  While NOT an Atari game Beauty & The Beast on the INTV is awesome.

  7. A little VLM on this beautiful socially distanced Sunday! 

    The Jaguar CD is hard to recommend on the game library alone. The VLM makes it worthwhile. It's actually my only CD player at this point.

  8. More tests.  This time with Galaxian and 80s shutter shades. 😎1915648848_GalaxianTest2.png.f6f9ceb225b41be54c8a69b16cba9b72.png

      It depends on when you bought in to the Jaguar market. These days, you're right!

      I like what you did with the clear power button on the back left, I just set mine up that way too.

      Loving these social media pics Arlen, you're awesome at this and it's very much needed in the Atari world.

      Thanks @Justin! 

  13. This "might" be a thing I try to do.  Still working out the video capture bugs....and the whole talking while playing thing.  Does anyone else hate the sound of their voice and/or the way their face looks while they talk?  I may just do voice overs! LOL!!!

      I've been trying to do something similar.  What r u using?

    3. Sabertooth

      Sabertooth

      @kamakazi20012 I'm using AverMedia Live Gamer Portable 2Plus for streaming/game capture.  The retro consoles (modded) are going to the unit via HDMI through my RetroTink 2x upscaler.  AverMedia has a streaming/recording software called RECentral 4.0 that is similar to OBS Studio but is a bit easier to use.

      The cool thing about the AVER unit is you can record game capture without a PC for reviews and such.  It records on a microSD so you can dump it later for editing.  For streaming, it does 4K pass through to your gaming monitor/TV.  It's also pretty plug-in-play, so as a total noob I got up and running in a less than half an hour.

      Good luck on your project!

      @Justin thanks, man!  I'm dabbling at this point.  We'll see what happens. Stay tuned.  👍📺

  14. What kinda seller packages an intact Sega Saturn game in a soft bubble mailer? What did he think was going to happen?  Of course it arrived broken!

    Bonus for not securing the formerly mint CD inside the now broken case. Now that's scratched up too. 

    This is almost as bad as when someone sent me a sealed Alien Brigade in a cereal box which got crushed. 😂😂😂

      Nice Superman BTW!

      Unreal! What was that guy thinking? I think it would be pretty clear to anyone, even someone who has never played a video game, that placing a brittle plexiglass case in a soft bubble mailer would have disastrous results. Sad to see this!

      On a positive note, it's cool that you're into playing Sega Saturn! 🪐

    4. Sabertooth

      Sabertooth

      Yeah, it is sad to see a minty game treated with such lack of care! 

      Yeah, I love the Saturn. It's right up there with my beloved Jaguar in my personal gaming pantheon.  

  15. Mail call: Titanfall 2 on PS4 courtesy of @Atari Creep!

    Check out that sweet "Creep it Real" sticker. Going to try it out over the long weekend.  Thanks Chris!

      Yep.  Watched those GI Joe cartoons followed with Transformer cartoons.  Ah the good ol' days.  Now a days people see that, Tom & Jerry, and Looney Tunes and it's all, "That's offensive and violent."  Blah.  What ever happened to good old slapstick comedy?  Oh dear...please don't let modern society see the 3 Stooges...someone might get a knot in their drawers.

  17. The Evercade Premium Pack came with 36 games included on 3 carts. All I can do is play Boogerman!

      Looks good.  I like the large screen.  Looks clear and crisp.

       

    2. Sabertooth

      Yeah, I'm pretty impressed so far. 

    3. Atari 5200 Guy

      Ah man! I spent a lot of hours on Boogerman BITD.  I loved how it was like a comic book.  Not the most hygienic of games but it was fun and comical.  One of my favorite Genny games.  I like watching what he does when he is left alone for a bit.

  18. Trying out my just arrived Blaze Evercade. Look for hardware and cart impressions on blog in the next few days. Pumped!

      I'm looking forward to these blog posts Arlen! I've seen more and more stuff about the Evercade but haven't checked one out in person yet. Really curious to see if this holds water with you or not.

      I haven't put it through it's paces yet but so far the Evercade been really nice. Here it is pictured next to a Lynx II for reference.

  19. I just picked this up today. Going to get up bright and early to take it out and familiarize myself with it. #pumped

  20. Apparently Nintendo is filming a commercial on Saturday in our building. Maybe this is my chance to be discovered?  Too obvious if I come decked out in a Zelda t-shirt? 😂

      If you're going to do it, make sure to OVERdo it.

      I could photobomb the shoot in a SEGA t-shirt. 😆😆😆

  21. Recovering from oral surgery & playing 90s "B" and "C" list platformers in between icing my face.

    Rayman, Bug!, Clockwork Knight, Gex, Busy & Zool are all getting some playtime.  What are some of your favorite second and third tier platform games? 

    IMG_20190825_113909719.jpg

    1. Justin

      Justin

      I loved Gex on 3DO, Rayman on Atari Jaguar, and Clockwork Knight on Sega Saturn. I always thought Clockwork Knight had a lot of potential for Sega to do more with it. Knights was amazing.

    2. Justin

      Justin

      I hope your surgery went well! 🦷

      It's you.  We know it's you!  😅

  22. Annex 002 is up with my impressions on Rikki & Vikki for the Atari 7800!  Who else owns this terrific game?
