Maximum RD, I saw your wii video the other day when you posted it on youtube. Looks like you got a nice package! Aggravating story about the import taxes though. Some people..  :rolleyes: How do you like your wii compared to other consoles?

I like it enough that I will keep it and even consider some more titles, to be fair I don't get much play time and have not used it since making that video.

Intellivision & Colecovision UNBOXINGS ! 

Finally received the Pre-Order I had made several months ago! Though tempted to cancel due to some details that later came to light I decided to just wait it out and today I received both of the latest Flashback units from AtGames. These were purchased online from ToyR'Us in the USA and shipped to me here in Canada via iParcels (who seem to have done a fine job overall) I give lots of narration and details so please watch and listen and see for yourselves exactly what you can expect should you decide to pick either of these up. These units were about $40 USD (corrected from my video commented) plus an additional $35 to have both units shipped to my address. I mention both pros and cons of these systems as well should you be interested in the cables/adapters to make the Intellivision Flashback controllers compatible with the original console Buy the Flashback Controller Adapter Here:[/size]

Hey Scientist, so happy to see you posting! I'm disappointed about the controllers too, that was a cheap shortcut they took, I guess at the last minute to get them out on time. You can get them rewired though and they'll still work. The Coleco controller actually feels a lot better imo than the originals.

I have been asked quite a bit about my own thoughts and impressions since doing my Colecovision and Intellivision Flashback unboxing video. Damn crazy views I got on that one compared to my usual numbers. Anyway, I just have not had the time or opportunity to plug my own back in BUT I can tell you from the info I have seen from others videos and comments etc, I will offer this:  Colecovision FLASHBACK: Sadly, the controllers are not interchangeable with the original ones, they were originally suppose to be but a last minute decision (likely to meet a quicker release ) changed that. The emulation is even worse than on the Intellivision Flashback. One real example is THE HEIST by Microfun on the Colecovision flashback pretty much running at 1/2 the original speed UGH! Not only does that kill the once fun and bouncy music but it kills the pace of the game, that is the worse of it though, the rest play OK. If your expectations are not too high (IE: you are not expecting a perfect representation of the original games) for the casual retro gamer just looking to quickly and conveniently relive some Colecovision fun it is not too bad a deal. Note also a dude on Atariage offering a sticker set helping this unit look much closer to the original design of the Colecovision which is nice as AtGames seemed to put less effort in this area than they did for the Intellivision Flashback. That said my original Colecovison, accessories and 128in1 cartridge isn't going anywhere.

 

Intellivision Flashback : Same issue with the controllers not being interchangeable with the originals (though a dude on Atariage offers adapters to fix this issue allowing you to use the Flashback controllers on original Intellivisions) Games play a little better than compared to the Coleco FB however a true fan will still notice some quirks especially in the audio department compared to the original but nothing too drastic. Again, for the causal player just looking to plug n play for some Intellivision fun not too bad a deal. I DO hope to get some time to myself to actually hookup and play to demonstrate for you all personally some of what i have reported here. Don't wait for me if you are on the fence for either of these though as you can find plenty of videos demonstrating all the new Flashbacks that are very thorough. Bottom line, these are not for the "purist", you guys can just stick to the original but the price point and all the included games means it is really marketed to those that had one as a kid and passes by seeing it on the shelf and they think "HEY! I remember having a Colecovision / Intellivision, this looks cool!" it is NOT for those who have the original hardware / games unless you are the type of collector who just has to have everything regardless or just want as a conversation piece etc. Had the games played more accurately or the controllers been compatible with originals right out of the box it would have been a no brainer, as it stands though you can decide if it is worth it for yourselves.

Not a planned video at all but as I was downloading some games anyway figured I would switch on the camera and talk a bit about my JXD s7800b ANDROID GAMING DEVICE. Also I demonstrate some ZELDA A LINK TO THE PAST - GBA Emulation as well. Thanks for watching!

Well what the heck, here is a 2nd unplanned video, seems the Dreamcast emulation was running pretty good after I downloaded IKARUGA for Dreamcast so I thought what the heck, I'll share a bit of that one with you all as well.

Alternative Game Controls # 1- Sensor & Touch. 
 
Looking at some aftermarket alternative controller options for popular Gaming Consoles. I will be showing a couple Turbo Touch 360 gamepads by TRIAX for the Sega Genesis / Megadrive as well as the Suncom Sensor for ColecoVision and lastly throwing in as a bonus (it is not really in the same category being more like a Intellivision DISC) I will look at the Quickshot NES QS-126 for the Nintendo NES.

Great videos MaximumRD! Justin introduced me to your videos a while back and got me hooked. Honestly I wish you were able to make videos more often, whenever you post them here I save them for when I have time to enjoy them all the way through.. I make a meal of them! There's a lot of showboating on YouTube and people trying too hard to be something they aren't. Some are overwhelmingly critical or vulgar because they think they have to be.  By contrast your vids are well done and you come across as a really genuine guy who loves gaming.
