Hello everybody!  I'm Dallas, the Gemini Gamer.  Recently, I started reviewing Atari 2600 games on my YouTube channel, Dreamcast Gamer.  Rather than updating my status with each new video, I will simply post them in this thread.  With these reviews, I use lots of humor and feature guests on some episodes.  I hope you enjoy!

Great review of one of my favorites.  I hadn't thought about playing Yars' in the dark for a long time, but you mentioning it (and showing it -- nice!) makes me remember vividly that indescribable locked-in feeling of taking on the Qotile in the dark, with that constant droning sound drawing you further into the game.

 

I agree that it would have been nice to see a few more Qotile shield level designs; thankfully the game variations and difficulty switches can help to keep things fresh and challenging.

 

Looking forward to more!

Who needs the Video Touch Pad to play Star Raiders when you've got a Nintendo Zapper?  This is the real way to play Star Raiders!

 

Ah nice one! You got a SuperRetroTrio, love mine and unlike Retron 5 is compatible with all the Everdrive flashcarts!

Lol. You had me going for a minute. I was like "How come I never head of this before !?!?!?"

Gemini Gamer is cancelled (I'm guessing most of you figured that out by now), but that doesn't mean the end of my Atari reviews!  All Atari videos will now be part of a more casual review series starting in late December.  Stay tuned for more details!

 

We've got a big Atari 2600 live stream at 5:00 P.M. CST!  I'd love to see all of you there!
