Quick Snaps of the New Fairchild VES/Channel F Pac-Man Homebrew and the Skunk Board for the Atari Jaguar

More quick iPhone photos of new collection additions, this time the amazing new homebrew cartridge for the Fairchild Video Entertainment System (VES)/Channel F, Pac-Man, with an impressive flip-top cartridge shell design, and the Skunk Board (Skunkboard) for the Atari Jaguar, which is a USB-based Jaguar development board containing flash memory as well as the ability to upload to Jaguar RAM. At some point the full color box and manual for the Pac-Man cartridge will also arrive and I'll do a full video review of that and the Pac-Man Collection for the ColecoVision, each of which is stunning in their own right and would have set the world on fire if they were released when these systems were still new.

Another new ColecoVision cartridge released, plus related news

Building on the platforms already impressive homebrew efforts to date, Dale Wick wrote in to tell me that the new ColecoVision mini-games cartridge compilation is now in stock. I already got my order in previously, but now it's available to everyone more easily. When you're there, be sure to check out the info on a second mini-games cartridge and get a sneak peak at early development on a game inspired by Coleco's never developed (but advertised) Dracula game. All the info here.

New Vectrex Homebrew - Vectrexians (2008) now Available! Includes cartridge, box, overlay and manual!

Kristof's first complete Vectrex game is now available for purchase. Vectrexians is a clone of the arcade classic, Galaxian, and appears to be a superb port and another fine addition to the Vectrex library. Full details with screen and package shots here, including how to order your copy, which is complete with cartridge, box, overlay and manual, all in professionally printed full color. Though the price is a bit high due to the weak dollar if you're not on the Euro, it appears to be a great value for this popular classic platform.

You Just Can't Kill the Kong

Every now and then something useful comes along in a MySpace bulletin, and no, it has nothing to do with a Macy's gift certificate or a free iPhone. If only MySpace itself was more user-friendly, seriously, how about the ability to forward bulletins, sometimes I think the whole thing is held together by Scotch tape, and powered by roomful of daisy chained solar powered calculators.

I haven't posted or read much here in awhile, but I think I've got something of interest to the main demographic of AA, and a quick search didn't come up with anything on it. Which would make this the post equivalent of the folks that have to be the first commenter somewhere and add nothing to the conversation but, "Frist!" (And that would be the correct spelling over at Crooks & Liars.)
