awesome! Almost a forgotten system, the Colecovision vs Atari 5200 console war was brewing just before the market crashed, and this gen was cut way short.

I got both of the pockets. Pretty neat little handhelds. I much prefer the EXP, but given their size and the fact one of them has built in Taito games (the Capcom one has the same games as the EXP) I will say they are worth having. Relatively cheap and plays the majority of evercade carts... what's not to like?

Have you also scored the new Duke carts? The I'm loving the remasters of Duke 1 and 2. Having never played them before I'm having a blast. Easily one of the best Evercade carts to date. Not a fan of the second Duke cart though. Those games have aged badly.

i did. Have not played them as i have been playing through full void. I should also be getting the atomic edition VS in the next day or two and it will come with its own Duke carts so i will have two sets. One of the sets im getting signed by the Duke voice actor, Jon St John in a couple of weeks at a game expo.

Full void is great! I got myself the special edition with the blue cart. I wish it was a bit longer though, but good that it even includes achievements!

I didn't get the atomic VS but having seen an unboxing on YouTube it wish I had, love the exclusive theme and menu music. I didn't feel I needed it since I have the founders edition VS. I was wrong 😂

That's cool getting a set signed by the voice actor though, that'll just make your copy that bit more rare and special 👍

One thing I'm surprised at though, is that Blaze didn't release a special edition of the Duke remasters, given the effort that went into creating them.


30 Years Ago, One Video Game System Hopelessly Failed Kids Everywhere

From Fatherly: "The Atari Jaguar never stood a chance. Here's why this forgotten video game system could have been the next big thing, but wasn't."

the jaguar (as a system) was pretty interesting. it certainly had the chops to go toe to toe with the others at the time. The problem was the lack of understanding the architecture. Only very few titles could actually show off some of what the Jag was capable of (ex. AvP) but many devs chose not to get to know the hardware and instead used what they knew which was the 68k processor inside (even though there were more powerful chips at their disposal).

It didnt help things that the controller was atrocious to deal with. Using overlays like it was the good old days... not very user friendly. They tried to correct that by making a pro controller with more face buttons but hardly any games made use of it. And the CD attachment that made the whole thing look like a kiddie potty... yikes. the only saving grace now is the indie / modding community. there have been much better games released for it recently than back in the day.

“Hopelessly Failed Kids Everywhere”

At the time, the Jaguar was not marketed as a kids console. Just look at the games: Doom, Aliens versus Predator, and Wolfenstein 3D. This was basically a PC gaming alternative for grownups. Made sense when the Nintendo and Sega owned the market for kids games. Except of course that grownups already had PCs that played PC games. Keep in mind that back then, graphics ran on the CPU. Gaming PC prices were net yet inflated by the cost of dedicated graphics cards.

The article was probably AI generated. If not then the website might as well get AI to write this stuff.

A dud console with a stupidly designed controller, and only a small smattering of worthwhile games, with no Japanese support, using carts when the industry was moving to optical media (except Nintendo of course!), never had the chance to be the next big thing in gaming.
