I've played the standard arcade version and as everyone will probably say I love the sounds in the arcade one. Especially the dialogue like "get the humanoid!"

Been keeping an eye out for a nice bundle of cheap games on eBay today. There's a lot of rubbish out there!

There's a 2600 woody, collection only, just near me starting at a tenner. Frankly it'd be rude not to bid so I'll see what happens nearer deadline

Just saw this Head to Head video comparing Pole Position and Enduro on the 2600.  Cool to see these games compared this way...

Had anyone seen this before?  I just learned that there was a 2600 version of Crack'Ed that was developed but never released.  Here is a video of this version.  Unlike the 7800 version, this has only three areas...

That was a great video! Made me see the box art in a completely new light.
I remember as a youngster drooling over the boxes and what kind of awesomeness the game inside could hold, (but in some cases the box was better than the game lol) then tearing into it as soon as I got home. Pitfall II Lost Caverns and Joust being my favorites. Nice to see someone going to all this JUST for the appreciation of! (could've gone the rest of my life without seeing him dance at the end though :P

Yes, Atari really did some great artwork for the games and let us use our imaginations.  :)
