iPods!!!!:)

I don't know about anyone else but I feel the iPods as they are right now are the perfect MP3 player. It does what it is supposed to do wonderfully. A lot of people talk about video capabilities and what not but I think it is fine as is. Keep bringing the prices down and adding more features through software. Bigger hard drives but does anyone else feel the same as me.

    I remember playing Loderunner on my Macintosh Plus like 12 years ago. That was a fun game to play when it was in black and white. Ohhh the memories.

    You can still play them. I downloaded Shufflepuck Cafe and Lode Runner (both B&W) and run them on OSX. Coolest vintage games.



    I also have Iago which is like Othello or Reversi. I downloaded Social Climber (that was a great game) but ran too fast and was unplayable.

    people, people, people...



    the real reason Breakout is the only game on the iPod is:

    Intellectual Property of Steve Jobs (when at Atari in '76)



    Steve's baby. not going to provide a 3rd party game before his.

    Now that the rights licence has been set with all-Steve IP, it will be possible for other games to get ported to the iPod.



    if it's a colour screen iPod, you can bet the first colour game will be... Super Breakout (also owned by SJ)



    Tetris licensing for handheld devices is mostly 'owned' by Nintendo (just saw a TV show - GameHeadz - on the history)



    now if we're considering "games that work well with scroll wheel"

    how about Tempest? or Maelstrom?
