LET THE GOOD TIMES ROLL!!!!
What the hell is that?
Oh yeah - it's supposed to be the newest, hottest, blah, blah, blah, who-gives-a-crap game system out there.
I hear it doesn't have Yars' Revenge, so who cares?
Honestly, I'd rather be playing my old Atari classics than anything on the X-Box 360. I'm sure the games look slick and all, but I honestly have no desire to play them. None.
Something has driven me back to the old-school games we used to love and enjoy so many years ago... AND make fun of too (because the graphics sucked and they were never like the arcade version). Is it because today's games are all rehashed crap with shiny new graphics... that aren't all that much better? Is it because they all kind of start to look the same after a while? Is it because those old games, as basic as they were, have become more enjoyable than today's offerings? Is it because we're all just reliving our youth as we approach middle-age?
All of the above... none of the above?
All I know is those Atari classics seem incredibly fun to me right now. The latest "next" generation of gaming systems all seem very lack-luster and bland. What's so new about them? I don't get the hype.
I'd better stop before this thread morphs in to something else.
I haven't had a chance to play Yars' Revenge since this morning, but I can't WAIT to hit it again soon! I prefer to play it on my Flashback 2 as opposed to an emulator. It's much better that way for me.
Ok - here's a question. I have Stella v2.0.1. The audio is better on this version than the previous version I was using - it's closer to what the games sound like on an actual Atari. BUT the sounds are all delayed slightly. It really annoys me and I cannot correct it. The delay is probably only about 50 to 100 milliseconds, but it is noticeable and irritating. Delay or not, I do prefer playing the games on an actual Atari or Flashback, but I do wish I could correct the delay.
