Title: Hello from across the ocean!
Post by: TrapZZ on June 28, 2013, 18:55:17 PM
Hey everyone!  I was referred here from the RG forums.  I'm a big Intellivision and Atari Jaguar lover (maybe it's that keypad that I can't get enough of).  I'm working on an entire Intellivision collection but the Playcable and Blue Whale continue to elude me :(

Hello TrapZZ and welcome to RVG!  You will find there are reviews for games on both your favorite systems and we try to keep the discussion going.  Have you also gotten any of the homebrews for the Intellivision?

Welcome to RVG!

Great to see you over here, there are quite a few other Americans here as well as plenty of Jag and Inty lovers so you will fit in just fine  :16:

Thanks for the kind welcome everyone!!!

TrekMD -
"The Laird" pointed out the reviews which was a big reason I stopped by.  I'm going to spend hours pouring through all of them.  I can't believe you guys took the time to do that.. it's some serious dedication!

I've played around with a bit of Intellivision homebrew, but I haven't fully jumped in like I should.  I keep letting other things get in the way.  I'm hoping this site helps fan those flames, I've been the only Intellivision fan I know forever and it gets lonely!

Oh, but that reminds me I have a little bit of bragging rights!  I used to work with a former Intellivision programmer who donated his collection to me (a box which sat in his garage).  It has a lot of cool stuff, but what stood out was a T-Cart of Major League Baseball 2 (!) and a prototype ECS keyboard which is a higher quality than what was officially released.

You should check out Match 5 for Intellivision.  You can see a link to it on the main page here on RVG.  It is a fun game.  I haven't gotten to write a review yet but I will soon. 

BTW, where are you in the US, TrapZZ?  I'm in South Florida.
