Re: Atari Max cartridges?

I'll pick one up and let you know via this thread how it works, etc. I can't find a full list of games anywhere online except for people that say "literally ALL the games" are available with this program.

Re: Atari Max cartridges?

Anybody familiar with AtariMax cartridges? I already own a few multicarts and I would love to be able to play Atari XE Roms on the original systems. Unfortunately when I got the order web page I have no idea what to order.  There are all sorts of variations and I don't know the difference. Any info...

Re: Play as many games as you can or play less games to death ?

Yes once I moved from the Spectrum and ST, which thanks to the rampant piracy on those systems never left me short of games to play. Onto consoles I like you likes the fact although the game investment was bigger I could get months out of the games. However now with the re-sale market selling PS3 a...

Re: Play as many games as you can or play less games to death ?

I tend to beat 'em to death. To me, the beauty of all the systems past Colecovision was the technology was there to create a game you could get a lot of mileage out of. I remember going through new Atari 2600 carts like water when I was a kid because the replay value wasn't there. When I was in coll...

Re: C64 mini

No Lode Runner, no Blue Max, no M.U.L.E.? I think list of games for C64 mini is pretty disappointing. Despite load times, C-64 & Atari 800XL users from back in the day loved using 64k capabilities to play The Ultimas, Seven Cities of Gold, Return of Hercules, or the early Castle Wolfensteins. Ga...

Re: All the way through?

I just finished Return of Hercules for the Atari 800 (I bought it on ebay a couple of months ago but only recently sat down to play it).

I also recently made it through Pitfall - Mayan Adventure for Sega Genesis for the 2nd time but I still haven't won AND collected all the letters.

Re: New arcade machine

Congrats on your purchase! I've always loved Defender. It's one of those games I like even though I'm terrible at it. I've played it millions of times through the years and never seem to get any better at it. I'm no better now at it than I was after the 3rd or 4th time I've ever played it

Re: Classic Consoles Upkeep

At the suggestion of the Critic, I picked up a few of these: http://www.guitarcenter.com/Gem-Sound/SP-8500-Rackmounted-AC-Switch-Panel.gc They work great, and allow me to turn things on only when I need them. You can buy plug extenders at Wal-Mart (I think I got a 3-pack for under $10) that way you...

Re: Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure (32X)

So as is often the case, I'm feeling the need to (re)review other versions of this game as a basis of comparison. I just picked up the Genesis version on Ebay for pretty cheap. My SNES review is pretty good but maybe a little harsh? I'm thinking D. My Jaguar review of this game needs a re-review as...
