I just got 3 good VHS movies...

1) Red Alert - 1977
2) 48 Hours - 1983
3) Lock Up - 1989

...and an ORIGINAL ATARI FLASHBACK!! (2004)

I had Atari Flashback 3 before AND IT WAS A PIECE OF GARBAGE!! (Games didnt run right,etc)

These arent as good as having the actual CONSOLE (To me the games look BETTER on the consoles themselves)

This one I just got IS ALSO A PIECE OF GARBAGE!! (Games didnt work @ all)


EDIT:

I got it working but the games ARE NOT THE 2600 VERSION OF THE GAMES I LOVE! (Most are not)

They are horrible....... 7800 versions...... Atari went DOWNHILL after atari 2600... I LOVE THAT CONSOLE!! -- I HAVE MANY CARTRIDGES...... Atari 5200/7800 Graphics SUCK in my opinion compared to the original which I love


Ah well........Ill take this to salvation Army and hopefully It will get a good home..... I guess Ill have to go out and get an actual 2600 console if I want to play my cartridges ON THE CONSOLE (I have been wanting to but havent gotton round to it)

I look for vintage postcards related to my past (towns, schools, etc), 50's and 60's poodle objects, and whatever is a good deal that I would use: gardening and craft books, clothing, toys and DH looks for tools. We never spend much and it's great fun to do when we go away. Just got a beautiful oak kitchen chair (old school or library?) for $10.00.
