Homebrews

Don't think we have a thread for homebrew games yet. Instead of creating a new thread for each game which comes out let's post 'em all here:

Re: 2018/3/15: Colecovision: Chuck Norris Superkicks

Love that last line. "Much like Chuck Norris himself, this game will teach you the meaning of pain." :lol: Quick question. Can you use the ColecoVision's joystick knob like a thumbstick? It seems to work on AtGame's ColecoVision flashback, but I've never had a chance to play a real ColecoV...

Re: 2018/3/12: Playstation 4: Mark McMorris Infinite Air

Yeah, let me fourth that.. great read, another entertaining F- review. I guess I'll fifth that. We gotta get Critic to review Action 52! Action 52 is the worst game ever just because it originally retailed for $199. Imagine if your parents bought you Action 52 as a kid and then replied with "B...

Re: I may stop visiting this site

The problem is, when you sign up for these services like GoogleAds you have very little control what they display. Third party ad networks are malware delivery systems. You know this. By adding them to your site you are deliberately exposing people to malware. You have mods pre-approve every post o...

Re: Toys R Us files Chapter 11

800 stores will close over the next few months. Let's see... 800 stores. If each store keeps $100,000 worth of merchandise in stock the toy industry may have an $80 million wright off. And that's not including some stores in Europe. On the plus side bankruptcy usually doesn't cancel all debt; the qu...

Re: 2018/3/6: Atari XEGS: Downhill, King Tut's Tomb

I'm sorry; I would've been disappointed too. The XEGS sounds like a better setup than the 5200 anyways.

Re: Atari Box update

Indeed. They're just trying to capetilize on a name they own; there's little point to it from the consumer standpoint.

Maybe some Indrema hopefulls will latch onto Linux aspect, but other than that I see no real market for the Ataribox.

Re: Atari Box update

The point? To generate excitement around the Atari name again. To raise their stock price a bit. To make them look like a real tech company instead of a holding company. To cash in on an old, once respected name.
