  1. What?? That is horrific. Poor Ken He made some of the best and earliest 7800 homebrews. What a terrific guy. Rest In Peace Ken.
  2. I like the quality here! That poster and the shrink wrapped pin are a nice touch.
  3. Looks like a nice game. Here are some positive thoughts running through my head right now: - I like that it's a 16k game. Graphics are simple but 16k means it will play on all Atari 8-Bit computers - This should also be easy to port to the 5200. I say DO IT!! - 4 Player mode to me is what makes this stand out from other Surround games and why I'd buy it - Your sound effects are nice
  4. What kind of feedback are you looking for on this? The game looks like a superb mashup of Breakout and Pinball! I'd love to see a 5200 version of it. If there were to be a 7800 version made I would like to see improved graphics on par with what the 7800 is capable of. Not to sound discouraging of anyones efforts but there have been too many 7800 homebrews that look more at home on the 2600 or 5200 and would be sub-par when compared to NES titles. Tile Smashers would be a great chance for an NES quality 7800 homebrew.
  5. I had no idea they brought back the Tandy name! What a great idea!
  6. Wow, a Combat review. Now that's starting at square one! Nice to see this
  7. Yeah, I don't get the whole "Japanese snacks" thing. Many of them are bland and not very tasty in my opinion. I understand it's part of "Otaku life" but it strikes me as trying too hard. I'm not one to tear things down and this runs contrary to my love of sampling different foods from around the world, but the Japanese snacks feel like an easy way to make your life seem more interesting with very little effort. Otherwise they'd still be downing Mountain Dew and Doritos.
  8. If you're going to go with a Raspberry Pi system I recommend the Super Nestro. Essentially a Raspberry Pi system modded into an original Super Nintendo or Super Famicom. Yo-Yo got me hooked on these a while back. It was created by Brian Gin, a concept designer in Redwood City, His store goes on vacation sometimes but he ships quality products. http://www.supernestro.com
  9. There are many holidays that we celebrate without giving much thought to. We have the day off, we go stand in line to shop or go to the movies. Thanksgiving is one of those holidays that I like to think about the true meaning of when it comes time to celebrate, and what it means to me. On Thanksgiving Day I'm usually around the people and situations that I'm giving thanks for. My family and friends. The wonderful food I get to eat, and the life I live. That got me thinking about all the wonderful friends I've made in the forums, and the "family" that I don't get to see, except for in here. It made me reflective about how thankful I am for these forums, the "Atari I/O Fam", and the past couple years of experiences that have come with it. So I wonder... What does it mean to you to be part of this community? For me it's meant: Exploring in my hobby in a deeply enriching way. To me it's meant being part of something that's a little new and a little different, attempting to pioneer new and creative ways to meet up here every night and include Atari and classic gaming into our lives. It's meant Atari Day, High Score Squad, our old Trivia Nights and celebrating Howard Scott Warshaw Day with a round of Insane Yars' Revenge. Being part of a movement to make things better through small actions. And in my role as a Moderator I've been fortunate in shaping small elements of this website, and hopefully impacted the way you enjoy your hobby as well. Most of all it's meant witnessing a new community form out of nothing and come together in ways that feel like we have a genuine bond with each other. Today I am thankful for having all of you as such a nice part of my life.
  10. Oh wow, Paul's family is drinking Double Cola!!! I hadn't thought of Double Cola in years!
  11. Weird Paul has been posting a lot of great videos lately. I think it's time he had a dedicated thread for his YouTube videos This week, Weird Paul posted a video looking at some of the school papers he still has from 1st through 5th grade!
  12. AWESOME Homebrew slobu! So happy to have you join Atari I/O! WELCOME!
  13. Thomas Jentzsch Is a retrogaming treasure.
  14. Nice to see a Night Stalker type game on the 7800, these are the kind of games that really shine on the system!
  15. Happy Independence Day! Join us for Atari Fireworks Night! http://youtu.be/MvAgx4kA3qw 5200 Baseball sure sounds good to me. Or maybe I'll learn about U.S. History and our State Capitals using an educational cassette for Atari Home Computers!
  16. Wow that looks so good! Let's hope Nintendo doesn't issue a C&D to the creators.
  17. Thomas Jentzsch is brilliant, he always brews up something good.
  18. We updated the Atari Arcade page this week more detail on the history of Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theater, including this GREAT video of Nolan Bushnell at Google, telling the fascinating story behind ShowBiz Pizza and the Chuck E. Cheese concept.
