Some of my older Atari 2600 vids :)

Looking forward to watching these!

 

Since my retro consoles aren't yet hooked up to my HDTV, seeing 2600 gameplay in full screen is the next best thing.

Also, sharing our admiration for the 4-bit set is something cool that will never get old (unlike my old square gamer self).

Why don't you have them hooked up?

Why don't you have them hooked up?

Had them on my 32" Sony CRT, where they looked nice, proper and original, but after moving things around, my new, bigger, bolder 50" flatscreen is my new boo in the living room.

A good, permanent set-up is required but still pending.

 

I'm also wishing I could have a digital projector cover an entire 10' wall with binary castle magic.

 

I know, I should settle with the fifty-incher.

When I was in High School I worked in a movie theater, it was brand new and the biggest one by where I lived. Sometimes we would have employee midnight showings which were always a lot of fun. They let us bring one guest to preview whatever movie was being released that week, and it gave the projectionists a chance to make sure the movie was spliced together right and everything was working correctly.

 

One night it was snowing really hard and almost nobody came. We had digital projectors which were still sorta new at the time. We ran cables and hooked up my AV modded Atari 7800 and played Ms. Pac-Man, Centipede, Galaga and Xevious for hours. We also hooked up my Dreamcast which I had just gotten that week. It was a lot of fun :-)

 

The preview for the movie was Magnolia btw. I think we must have stayed until close to 4:00 am.
