Lord Thag Posted December 14, 2022 Share Posted December 14, 2022 My good friend swlovinist got me, to my complete surprise, a VCS for xmas this year (thanks again, man!) My initial experience wasn't the best: the thing refused to download updates or connect to the store, and I had to download the latest OS from a reddit thread, install it to a USB stick, boot the console to BIOS, and install it manually. Once I did, everything worked as designed. This is obviously a big problem. And the fact that Atari isn't including an instruction sheet, help desk article, or a download to the latest OS version on their website is pretty poor customer service for a new user. If I wasn't a computer person, this would probably have been a deal breaker. But I got it sorted and got some games. Once I got it working though, I am very much enjoying this thing. I ended up playing it all weekend. There are quite a lot of fun games on this thing, not even counting the recharged series, which is excellent. This thing looks to be a permanent fixture next to my Evercade Vs, and I find myself playing both consoles far more than I anticipated when I want to scratch that arcade/retro itch. Fun times. I'm particularly impressed with the recharged games, Syndey Hunter, Thrustlander, Donut Dodo, Jetpack joust and (of all things) Pixel Cup Soccer. If anyone has tried the multiplayer, I'm curious if it's just as janky as the setup process. PM me if you'd like to add me as a friend. There's got to be at least eight of us right? 😁 5 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
