Not sure why none of the other game boxes smell like that. Totally weird. Maybe it's my Vader console. I don't think that the 6-switch smells like that (not in that box). I think that Atari systems and games are just permeated with older times. Maybe it's just that old 1970's cars always smelled of cigarettes and plastic? I have tons of second-hand games and the Atari is the only one that never changes.

    I don't think that I have a picture of my Vader console, but here's the 6-switch for the fun of it.

    I only recently got an Atari like last year and the one I found locally was a black Vader unit as well. I was hoping that it'd be a heavy sixer, but the price on the Vader and games bundle at the thrift was pretty sweet so I jumped on it. Only played it for a short while though, it's hard to get into Atari for me personally.

    Something is rotten on Amazon.com. Got an email this morning saying they canceled my order of Shantae for Vita. Has this happened to anyone else here?

    I haven't pre ordered it yet. Looked at the page again, maybe it has to do with them correcting the info?

    I had actually canceled and re-ordered after they corrected it. It wasn't applying the discount though, so maybe that was the reason.

    Off-topic story: our national courier requires more than a week to get through the "back log" of mail that was the result of a 24h strike. Or else they're doing a LIFO system in their warehouses.

    I think it's a matter of finding the right games. There are some tremendously fun shooters and action games. There are also a lot of simplistic and boring / broken (by today's standards) games. And it's definitely not for anyone who loves impressive graphics and RPGs, though some of the games really are impressive, given the hardware's limitations.

    They cancelled my WiiU and PS4 but not the Vita "Sails," of which the discount was applied...

    Really freaking weird. I want to buy it through them for the discount, but if I have to get it elsewhere oh well.
