Re: Replay Expo 2011 - Official Thread (inc name badge reque

The miniture StarWars cabinet was an absolute work of art, such attention to detail, it was just wonderful....however there was something not quite right about the gameplay and/or control. It felt a little sluggish, and the controler had a strange sort of dead zone issue, which caused problems with ...

Atari VCS Bulletin

Can anyone provide links for any sites that have scans of the old Atari Bulletin's.
Ive found the AtariAge site that has half a dozen or so, but a while ago I found another that had older ones.....but I can no longer find it.

I cannot believe just how bad arcades are now, and considering how much of my youth I spent in them in the early 80's, its sad that I now have no interest whatsoever in going to one. The last decent arcade I went in was one at Clearwater beach, where I was lucky enough to find a Galaga machine, a Mi...

I would have to say Robotron. Unfortunately I never got to play it as much as I would have liked as there was only one that I knew of localy....but what a wonderful game, that I still play on XBLA from time to time.

Mr Do is one of those games where you can spend years away from it, and return to it being just as good as before. Its great fun, though I prefered Mr Do's Castle myself.

Anyone remember the 255 lifes trick that a later romset removed ?

Hello.

Im absolutely loving this game. Pacifism is extremely frustrating, but ive managed 43 million on it so far. Can't really remember my others, but I think my deadline score is roughly 14 Million.

I like how I can see all the friends leaderboards when you start the game.
