Retro Chat / Mascots in the early days of gaming.
« on: May 31, 2017, 00:43:23 AM »
Posting about the Atari 7800 and it dawned on me. I do not remember any early console having a mascot. Atari? Intellivision? Collecovision? or Odyssey 2?

Intellivision had the running man but was he a mascot? Odyssey 2 had K.C Munchkin but it was more famous for being a better Pac-Man does that count? Colecovision is anyone's guess.

Were there any mascots?

Thoughts, comments or am I just thinking to hard? :P ;D

Activision Hits - Remixed
PSP
Includes 40+ games: Atlantis, Barnstorming, Beam Rider, Boxing, Bridge, Checkers, Chopper Command, Cosmic Commuter, Crackpots, Decathlon, Demon Attack, Dolphin, Dragster, Enduro, Fishing Derby, Freeway, Frostbite, Grand Prix, H.E.R.O., Ice Hockey, Kabobber, Kaboom!, Keystone Kapers, Laser Blast, Megamania, Moonsweeper, Oink!, Pitfall!, Pitfall 2, Plaque Attack, Pressure Cooker, Private Eye, River Raid, River Raid 2, Robot Tank, Seaquest, Skiing, Sky Jinks, Space Shuttle, Spider Fighter, Stampede, Starmaster, Tennis and Thwocker


Both include bonus unlockables: commercials and the various patches that Activision awarded.
Both have an 80's soundtrack.

Playstation 2 version has a few extra games like Baseball, Commando, Title Match Wrestling and Tomcat: F14 Flight Simulator.

PSP version overcomes any shortfalls in being vey button friendly. Even Decathlon was a breeze to play.

Two similar games only just a little different in size.

Retro Chat / What Hidden Games do you know?
« on: September 08, 2012, 05:28:37 AM »
I was curious what games had hidden games?

In another thread Laird brought up Pitfall the original game being hidden in the Jaguar version of Pitfall.

I know Arnold Palmer Golf for the Genesis/Mega Drive had a hidden game.
Pac-Man 2 for the Genesis/Mega Drive and Super Nintendo had the arcade versions of Ms. Pac-Man and Pac-Man you could play.

Anyone else know some hidden games and what system?

MAME & Emulators / Multi Dreamcast emulators
« on: August 15, 2012, 16:59:32 PM »
Using the extensive tools of the internet I made a couple of multi emulators discs for the Dreamcast.

Are there any current sites that are still active to get new updated emulators?
