In that order
I used to have a pink fur cover for mine.
Review here; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GT-HlfzYwNo
Did play on one once though.
mine was a NeoGeo pocket.
We weren't allowed one.
My Dad got a copy of some magazine which had every game released listed at the back and made me go through and circle the ones I was interested in so he could approve them. It was utterly open to abuse as a system.
It had four levels and I never completed level 3 with Lady fucking Penelope, I've wanted to know what the fourth level was like for nearly 20 years now.
It was in a bank and you had to do safe breaking but there was some security camera which shot you which you had to distract with a clockwork mouse or some such nonsense.
my whole world is unravelling
Apart from hacky sack, obviously.
Crzy Taxi <3
it was heartbreaking
though some games dont work and it has gone really yellow!
What was it like / how much did you pay for it do you still have it / were you just ^thising it for the LOLs?
Puny 64 weaklings!
But you haven't specified whether co-ownership counts. Shame on you.
I bloody loved it, except the Ghostbusters 2 game which is still the hardest game I've ever played
Too busy Nailing Q*Bert, Pole Position, Smurfs...
about Prince of Persia on the SAM Coupé is that sword fighting just involved holding down the attack key. The AI was terrible.
or if you happen to still have your Sam and your diskzines... FRED issue.... 31? i think. it's on there.
But I won't have the game :(
but that might have just been my parents telling me that because they'd bought me the cheaper one
In terms of hardware, anyway. The 7800 was backward compatible with the 2600. And that's about all it was good for, cos no-one made games for the 7800, cos it wasn't very successful, cos there there better consoles for your money by then.
when they've already appeared in the main thread.
Wanted the A3010. Sent off for the promo floppy disc and everything.
With their ARM chips now used in smartphones and ever more laptops, they really were the future.
An idea ahead of it's time.
I bought this in Singapore, did it exist here?
I loved my atari lynx, but then got bored and swapped it with a kid at my school (who was incidentially Jamie Olivers cousin or something) for his Nike Air Max's that he'd just got for christmas and didn't like.
probably helped that my dad was a gamer when I was growing up
Colecovision (picked this up for £4 and sold it on ebay for £250).
Amstrad CPC464 (This was my main childhood computer)
Atari ST (My main teenage years computer)
but when i'd get bored of it constantly beeping i'd bury it in a shallow grave in my garden, as that was faster than taking a tiny screwdriver to the back.
if my mum ever sells that house i think she'll have to tell the prospective buyers that it's build upon an ancient tamagotchi burial ground
That if you used the barcode off the box of a SNES game, it let you play that particular game on your barcode battler.
...yeah, so he got caught stealing a display box from Dixons.
Even if it did just involve shaking it furiously
After beating my little brother up once, he took revenge by carefully unplugging them all and pouring them all over my bed.
machine that was either Phillips or Panasonic or something. It must have been late 80's. Anyway I think he only had one game that was a platform game where a Penguin or Eskimo ran into the screen jumping over cracks in the ice and so on.
and the game might have been Penguin Adventure.
Takes me back.
when there are multiples of the same object
all in a cupboard ready to go if needs be
