2600 Activision patches completed!
Finally got them all! Just gotta find a particularly geeky place on the wall to hang this now.

Yeah, I know - some of you young-uns are probably going "wtf?" Joe, Kaiser & some others will get it though.

Ha, when I first read the title I thought Activision was putting out patches (game fixes) for their old 2600 games

O RLY? I thought he collected 2600 patches of Activision.

So, what's the deal with the patches?

I was an Activision fan back in the 2600 days, but I didn't participate in the patch program. They're very cool, though.

You acheived a certain score, took a picture of your screen, sent it in, and got a patch for that game.

Nice. Too bad they didn't re-make this sort of thing for the Atari Flashback, that would have been funny.

That would rule

I only earned a handful from Activision back in the day (some of those games I just plain suck at). Collecting them nowadays can be maddening - the majority of them can be very hard to find.

Where do you live, cause I'm gonna come break in.

Awesome stuff. Pretty darn impressive to get all the Activision patches. IMHO, Activision games ruled on the 2600.
