  1. I bought an ammunition box and put a bunch of combats in it, used it for a display and ended up selling it. LOL. An easy way to get rid of them.
  2. Marathon going on for you non super bowl fans
  3. Now all that needs to happen is an Atari adapter so we can play on a retron
  4. Would it be cheating if I said the best 2600 is the 7800? Not sure if it counts or not, but I've been using my flashback portable a lot. I'm thinking about bringing it with me on my trip in a few weeks. But if I had to choose just the original release stuff, it would be any non 2600 Jr, the 6er is the best. Also, does the coco expansion count as well? They really gave Atari a run for the money on that one.
  5. I literally just got mine today! Looking forward to seeing some of these games play for the first time.
  6. 5200 pacman was what got me to want one. The kids up the street had one and we would play that all the time. I think that if Atari had just spent a little more on the quality of the controller, it would have been a slam dunk.
  7. Welcome to the forum, or should I say family. Glad to have you here!
  8. I would have been beaten senseless if I cost my parents any money traceable. However, I know a kid in my school that had that jacket. Now I know how he got it.
  9. Was torn between empire strikes back and gremlins, had to choose gremlins because empire is a little more known.
  10. I only think the NES classic falls short of expectations for me, only 18 games the Atari flashback portable gives me way more options. And I can take it with me.
  11. To be honest what a burger is not that good for me. There are so many options, particularly when it goes to burger joints, but they do periodically have an A1 burger that is good. I do like their shakes. But so much fast food to choose from.
  12. Have fun! I thought that it was a longer show. I was probably confused with their comic con.
  13. No chicken express here yet. Anyway since we are talking about food places. Steak and shake has good shakes, and chilli in my humble opinion. Brings me to childhood every time I go there. I found some decent places (local chains) here in San Antonio. If you ever get a chance to come here, please check out these guys. They're affordable and for your money, worth it. Yes, there are some really good stuff out there as well, but these are more affordable. Bill Miller's BBQ, a good selection and won't break the bank. There are two Mexican chains that are also good, Las Palapas and Taco Cabana, some very good budget friendly Mexican food. I got some other great restaurants here, but for what you paying, very good stuff.
  14. Sad, I hope they don't shoot them selves in the foot if the switch fails as well. At least they are smart enough not to stop the true handheld game production.
  15. The only thing closest to what you described that I've seen was at Internet cafes, mostly overseas where I saw them. South Korea, Japan, Indonesia and of all places, United Arab Emerites. Late 90s mostly, but I saw one about 5 years ago in Panama. They also had a giant Dungeons and dragons type game room. They're usually in a mall or western type market place.
  16. Another thing to consider is the voltage is 110 like the US, but the outlet is round pegs, so you need an adapter or a US power supply.
  17. Quick maths $399 reals conversation to $125 usd.
  18. I know that not all emulators are equal. I would try out another one to see if it would have some effect on it.
  19. I think it's awesome that Paul made it available to other people. I am going to mess with this one for a bit. It might be cool if I could make some hacks for myself, maybe good enough to share with you guys here.
  20. I saw this today, it's called the slocum tracker. You can make your own soundtrack and sounds without having to get into assembly language to much. A great little tool for homebrew or just messing around with.
  21. I went there this afternoon and saw several game related stuff. The highlight was a Zelda throw fleece blanket for $25. But they have a lot of neat little game related treat tins and I think I saw some Nintendo themed notebooks. Check them out guys.
  22. Bushes chicken is WAAAY better than raising canes. Even the tea is better. Also, in and out is better than what a burger.
