Any news when this is going to be shipped? Just wondering ..

Hi @twh/f2 - all pre-orders have shipped and I started shipping new orders yesterday. If you need any further help, just shoot me an e-mail with your order number from my website contact form, or PM me here. I see you are in Germany, so around 7-10 business days is the delivery time, so you should have it soon.

Might as well bump this while I'm here rereading this. I just ordered and figured I'd recap what I have to look forward too! 😄

Excellent! I hope there's an interview with the person who designed the ST case.

@Zeptari - all packed up and ready to go!  FYI, all the games you mentioned are reviewed, so you obviously have good taste! Ira Velinsky was Atari Corps head of industrial design (previously worked at CBM) and even designed the Jaguar case, unfortunately he sadly passed away in 2000 far too young. He had his own design studio (SoZo) and even did some work for Sega (on the Nomad). 🙂

Thanks! Yes, I purposely picked from your review list the games I owned back in the day. I was hoping to see The Pawn,Captive,Xenon2, Marble Maddness and Rogue on it. That's more then ok.There's always the 40th anniversary.Excited to learn about some games I never played. ;)

A lot more common as we get older. :( 

 

Thanks for the heads up! Time to fire up STeem!
