Re: What's your soundsystem like for gaming?

'Sound system'... you mean like the speaker of the TV I plug my old 8-bit stuff into? :D

LOL... any kind of sound system would be entirely wasted for any of the systems I play.

Re: Odyssey 2 Broken!

I'm glad you have a working O2, and I look forward to the reviews. The O2 is not that well known, compared to other systems from its day such as the Intellivision or the Colecovision. Although it has a fair number of crappy games, it does have some real gems, like the two KC games, UFO, Turtles, Mon...

Re: Top 5 Game Boy Advance Games

Since the Nintendo franchise games such as Mario/Wario/DK, etc are going to dominate any top 5 list for the GBA, how about listing the Top 5 Non-Nintendo games? Particularly the "hidden gems" that weren't big sellers and are not going to be familiar to many players...

Re: Miniature NES with 30 built-in games

Don't worry, in two or three weeks they'll have plenty more of these just in time for Christmas shoppers. Well, I screwed up that prediction! I honestly thought Nintendo would make them available by the second week of December, and then haul all the profits to the bank. Here it is the second week o...

Re: Conflict of Interest?

The same thing happens in a lot of industries. For example, I have been riding street motorcycles since 1992, and have read many reviews in magazines and web sites over the years. If you flip through a motorcycle magazine, you'll notice that the vast majority of ads are for motorcycles and riding ge...

Re: Retro-bit Generations console review

I was interested in this device until I read and watched some reviews. Although the VGC's review is somewhat more positive, even his review is not much of a recommendation. Nice concept, poor execution.

Re: Atari Flashback Portable confirmed for Fall 2016

I've only been disappointed with Battlezone, the Juno First and Rally-X homebrews don't work. The creator of Juno First has released a patched version of this ROM that now runs on the AFP. You can find out more if you search for Juno First on the Atariage web site. I've tried it and it looks pretty...

Re: Christmas Loot

I bought myself an Atari Flashback Portable, a copy of 'NOX/Death Race' for the Vectrex, and a copy of 'Rebooteroids' for the Atari Jaguar.

Re: Most Unreliable Console?

I've found consoles to be generally pretty reliable. I'm trying to think of one that failed. Except for a 1977 6-switch Atari that needed a regulator replaced, I've never had a console break down.

Now _controllers_... there's a different story.
