Wow that thing looks amazing! And is that Smash (bros.?) that it shipped with?? OG!
I’m very interested in this but I have to say… I have no idea.
I’ll see if I can find a ceremonial shaman on offerUp or the local 24 hour diner to rattle my brain to the point of…
Oh wait ill just ask my brother
Tennis, Hockey and Smash - shown here on a Odyssey 200 - all very distinct.
When the Atari 2600 arrived, I thought that must be the pinnacle of graphics never to be matched. The future had clearly arrived and would never be improved.
Fast forward a few years …
Now the Atari VCS ( after only a few (cough*) more delays ) is coming full circle and beyond. My child self through the leap from the Odyssey 300 to the Atari 2600 was as good as it would ever get.
I’ve been on the vcs mailing list since the beginning. I haven’t pre-ordered, but I am really curious about what they’re up to. I’m finding it difficult to see how they think they’ll find a place in the market.
Especially difficult if they never get to market.
Haha late to this, but wow that’s nastalgic. Loved all 3 of those Kirupa.
Also ‘Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe’ another great DOS game with the Joystick.
Ah yes, the NES memories. Excitebike and Technobowl as well.
Welcome to the forums, @kevingilpin!
In that same genre, did you ever play Gunship 2000?
Haha of course, and “Prince of Persia”
And thanks for the welcome! Been a long time site visitor, but finally decided to join the forums, so thank you for all of the resources. Discovered you via purchasing your React book at a Barnes and Noble a long time ago, by far the easiest & best coding read, so kudos on the detailed and humorous writing style.
I was nine years old. Space Invaders-1978 or 1979.
Within a year or two a whole bunch of arcade games showed up. Missile Command was one of my favorites.
Missile Command! That brings back a few other games from that era that I played a bit too much haha.
Freakin’ Fuzzy Fuzzballs
There is a ton more I can start listing, but I’ll pace myself
For me it would be Heroes of Might and Magic 2 (1996) and Age Of Empires (1997) both amazing games
Reminds me of Gorillas
Do you like the new Mortal Kombats?
Hi kirupa! Yep, I like playing it. Of course, nowadays we have lots of new different games but I still play Mortal Combat. What is your favorite character in MC?
Rayden! Always Rayden
Sky Fox Commodore 64 1989 - first game I got hooked on!
