Re: Arcade room is up!

The Arcade room is back up...well, sorta. Games don't work yet, but I will look into getting the key tonight. I had to start from scratch though, so unfortunately all of the old games and high scores are gone.

The Games That Weren't by Frank Gasking

Basically, this book showcases games that were in development, but for whatever reason were canceled. It's a fantastic premise for a book, however there is one major game that it's lacking: SwordQuest AirWorld. That's perhaps the most well-know game ever to be canceled, so there's simply no excuse a...

Not All Fairy Tales Have Happy Endings by Ken Williams

I got this book earlier in the year. Ken Williams (founder of Sierra) wrote it. Great book, and really sad. Ken says that Sierra should still be making games, and I agree with him 100%.

Did anyone get the Game & Watch Zelda handheld?

I had it pre-ordered, and it came in November. Really cool. I also have the Super Mario Bros. one from last year. Wonder what the future will bring for the Game & Watch series. :Link_slash:

Re: Intellivision Amico

Boy, does system stir up pot! It's got a lot of haters but I will reserve my opinion for when I actually play it. Yeah, I think it looks cool too. Too bad about the multiple delays though. I think I'm gonna pre-order soon, it's only $250 I think. Hope it comes out by June. At this point, March does...

Boy, does system stir up pot! It's got a lot of haters but I will reserve my opinion for when I actually play it. It's been delayed multiple times, now expected to come April 2022. I kinda want this in a way, although I didn't pre-order. I've seen quite a few videos, and some of the games I think I ...

PlayDate

What does everyone think of this little handheld with a crank? It certainly is unique. It cough my eye enough to preorder it this Summer, but it's been delayed to sometime in 2022. While it's a little small for my taste and lacks a color screen, I am nonetheless excited about it. Who knows, if it's ...

Re: The rarest/most valuable games of each decade

Time to bump this since the 2010's are long over. What do you guys think was the rarest game of that decade? Possibly a Sing game for the Wii. I have one from 2018 I believe.

Re: Arcade room is up!

One of the things I'd like to do most is bring back the Arcade Room. However, with Adobe Flash Player ended its support on January 12, 2021, it might be all but impossible. I will look into other ways of getting an arcade up and running. Update: Here is the forums of the JV Arcade creator. He's got ...

Re: Nothing like logging onto a BBS on the original hardware!

I got into that myself in 1987. Just about all ASCII text there with very few sounds in general! There's a BBS documentary on YouTube that's supposed to be pretty good. I've only just seen part 1. Should see more, now that I've been reminded of it :) I'd love to see that myself. If you find the lin...
