Wheres Ryan? I mean I don't care who I get when it comes to Quick Looks. In fact Jeff and Vinny are my favourite team but I thought it was Jeff and Ryan for games room?

Giant Bomb are the kings of long, tedious gameplay sequences played for comedic effect.

 Wow, another horrible week of releases on Game Room.  I swear it's almost time to put this dead horse down.

Decathlon - "Track and Field" for the 2600.  You had to rock the 2600's joystick back and forth as fast as possible to make your on-screen character run faster… because the 2600 lacked multiple buttons.  My brother and I destroyed so many joysticks on this game back in the day it wasn't funny.  Doesn't translate to the analog stick well AT ALL.

Asteroids 2600 - Why are they INSISTING on releasing the arcade and 2600 roms of so many games, so close together?  I can see this for "completeness" of the collections, but damn… give it a while and release some OTHER roms.

Auto Racing - Intellivision - Just as horrible as that top-down motorcycle racing game ALREADY on Game Room.  Also, side note.  I remember back when the 2600 and Intellivision were the only consoles on the block we owned was the 2600.  I only knew a few people that owned Intellivisions, and they were ADAMIT that the Intellivision was THE BEST console with THE BEST games… really?  UGH.  What a piece of junk.

Frostbite - Boring "frogger" clone.

I'm aware there have been other ones. I just thought for most of them Ryan wasn't around or was too busy doing something else to record those Game Room QLs. Maybe I'm wrong.
 
Still I think Ryan is the best for asking to look at replays and stuff.

Seaquest is basically Chopper Command in reverse, but it's just as good.

Im quite surprised they haven't put out a Yar's Revenge or Zaxxon. I don't know if they put out Q-Bert or Mappy yet either. If not. They should. 
 
I also remember this one game as a kid on the 2600 called Plaque Attack. Played that game for hours.

Is Activision's H.E.R.O. (Atari 2600/1984) already out yet, if someone knows? 
Possibly the finest game on the system.

I actually bought Frostbite last night and I think it's pretty fun.  Also you can get two gold medals easy.
 
Let's also note that this is the week Jeff has now spent over $300 in Game Room:
 
30 + 7(4) + 5(9) = 103(3) = 309
 
I would only hope that this has been justified as a "company expense".

Now I know where the Simpsons got their inspiration for the jailbreak game.  Only I think you played as the criminal in the Simpsons version.

Is it possible to report players for cheating on Game Room?  That Jail Break high score is total bs and needs to be removed.
