Hi from San Francisco!

Hi everyone! I'm a long-time idler at AtariAge but decided to come over here and see what it was all about after I heard about it on one of the game-by-game podcasts (I think it might've been on Phil's?). I've got a nice 2600 collection, some 7800 and Atari 8-bit computer stuff, recently got a Jaguar, and am still trying to figure out what to do with my ST. I also just got a stand-alone Video Pinball console, which I'm now in love with (it's seriously impressive, and a lot of fun). I'm also a programmer, and I like learning how 2600 games work, although I rarely finish anything except for graphics effects. In my spare time, I write music and do retro game reviews on YouTube.

Howdy!  Have a look around, it's a nice place to have some fun!  You should post a link to your YouTube reviews!  And a picture of that pinball game -- sounds cool.

A cool thing about the ST -- you can create floppy disks on your PC to run on the ST.  Like download a ROM, write it to a floppy, and then load it on your ST.  Assuming you have a PC with a floppy drive.

Re: the ST: I've gotten a few games to work, and I've got my trusty Windows 98 machine ready to write out disks. I just have trouble finding games that either are exclusive or work better on the ST than Amiga. I think SWIV might be one of those, and I think Vroom and Stunt Car Racer work better on ST too. I was pleasantly surprised to find a Star Raiders game for it though, and that is definitely not available on the Amiga! Other exclusive games I've tried are Oids and Super Sprint. One thing I do like about the ST is there doesn't seem to be as much of a PAL-NTSC issue than on the Amiga.
