The lack of sound on the intro was haunting.

Scooter Shooter seems pretty cool. Also, nice dance at the end!
I think high-level kaboom play is what inspired Expert Guitar Hero.
A HE HE........................................................................
Used to play the hell out of Utopia as a kid. Thanks for the QL.
Didn't they already QL River Raid 2?
I'm telling you, if you take the time to figure it out Utopia is actually a really excellent game. Kinda like a cross between Civ (like it says in the description,) and an early RTS. No lie. I really feel like intellivision is getting the short end of the stick with these Quicklooks. Sure they don't translate very well with that keypad/ disc controller. But that's what made some games so good. There was a lot of depth to be had with some of these games.
Laffo at Utopia
I may never buy Game Room because of dedicated PC emulation (which is arguably better than the coding here judging by this video) but I LOVE the interface so much. The avatars and cabinets, the lovely controller overlays and console interfaces and the rewind feature is really nice. Glad it's out on Windows too so I may get it for a few, but only a few games.
I love these game room quick looks. Blast from the past. Awesome :P
You get points in Star Strike be bombing the little red areas on the ground. Star Strike is supposed to be the "Blow up the Death Star" scene from Star Wars. (This doesn't make it a good game)
Also you have a shield you can activate in Major Havoc during the side-scroller missions. Once it protects you from a bad thing, you lose it, but it's great for those "Oh no" moments.
the beginning felt like a previous game room Quick Look, deja-vu'd as hell
Game Room continues to depress me, thanks for the quick looks though.
The audio isn't as good as it used to be at the old place. I think...?
And this is one of the reasons Xbox Live has generated $1 billion. People are stupid enough to pay top dollar for old shitty games that are best forgotten.
" Didn't you guys already do River Raid 2? EDIT: Okay, they noticed. "I was thinking that exact same thing.
I read about that "pause kit" for Atari over on Ars. As someone who owned a 2600 I was just as amazed as Jeff. If I knew Jeff still had a 2600 I would send him my copies of ET and Pacman that are currently collecting dust on my shelf. Never forget what caused the crash. Never forget how low we can go for easy money.
Echo-y voices and no video feature sound!!!
I'm more of a "flag-and-be-done-with-it" sort of guy, myself.

Juno first seems pretty rad.
Yay, Juno First! That game is the radness, fer sure. And playing Kaboom! is one of my earliest gaming memories. Playing that and Combat for a whole night at a friend's place while our parents were having dinner was brilliant fun.
And I'd never even heard of Crackpots before, but it looks like a not-quite-as-satisfying Orc Attack (itself a game I acknowledge has a very small pool of fans).
Hm, I thought there was something wrong with my headphones at first.

Sound is super echo-y.
Quick Looks 2.0
About time for some original video content. There was none there after E3 and it has been quiet with the move and all.

" didnt they already show River Raid II? "I'm sure they did!
@22:51 : If you like Scooter Shooter, you may also enjoy Casino!
" You might want to track one of these down, the dial on the outside of the analog stick works pretty good as a paddle, it's not perfect but it works better than the stick.Holy crap, I will take twelve please.
And Major Havok is awesome, it pisses me off that back then it was at one arcade 3 towns over, so I only got to play it when we went to that particular shopping mall. "
"Even though there was not a Video Feature sound... anyone still heard it in your head? ...to the point where it took you awhile to realize there was no sound, cus you swore you heard it anyway? "

No A minor chord?
I like Game Room myself. But, why are they doing Quick Looks on this? I thought most of the people already know about these games. "I know right? It's horrible when they put a gun to your head and make you watch these quick looks.
" How could anyone justify purchasing one of these games? They should be free. "Nostalgia.
They need to add B-17 Bomber to Game Room.
It is a shame that they haven't found a better way to adjust the sensitivity of controls for trackball/paddle games. Warlords is an incredibly good game when the controls work well.
Oh god, I have nothing.
I'm always picturing Jeff thrusting.
where is the intro chord.
