Very nice! I've never tried Gem Race but Tube SE and Fallen Angels are both great games.
Thanks I haven’t tried any of then yet but, I saw a video of Tube SE a long time ago and was very impressed. Fallen Angels, as you know, is a Jag version of Rescue on Fractalus. Both these titles interest me greatly and now I am back home, they need to be played. Gem Racer looks reasonable so I will of course test that also 😀
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!

To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks

Nice PSP pick ups.  Where did you get Astrostorm from, Saturn?

My humble addition this week is a book:

Yes, I’ve had a quick browse through it and it has some interesting detail and great graphics.

In all honesty, I am not that interested in the Flashback series but as I have a flashback 4, I figured this would be a good addition should I ever sell the console.

The book has nice info on the games.  It really would make for a nice guide for the 2600 itself.  :)

It would although, I have seen other books dedicated to the 2600. I guess tying this in with the flashback consoles gives it a more modern feel rather than simply reflecting the past. Quite clever when you think about it. The Jaguar encyclopaedia did a similar job except the Jaguar has not yet been miniaturised. Hmm 🤔😉

Here are some arrivals for the past couple of weeks or so...










These I found in clearance at Staples.  Much to my surprise, the Pixel Player was marked down to $4!

The pixel player has a whole bunch of Data East games.  Really cool little system.  :)  And for $4!  That was even a surprise because it said $12.50 in the rack.
