I didn't have a fastload cartridge however, yes, 95% of my games came with jammin' SID music and a bouncy crawl saying:

 

"LASER DRAGONS 4.... BROUGHT TO YOU BY DARKSHADOW AND WAREZ-HAUSE!!!! CALL OUTS TO HAWKSOFT GRIM-PEEPER WAREZSLAYER ... LAME OUTS TO DETHSERPENT & BLAKKLIST!!!!..."

 

Those were the days.

Hmm judging by the comments in this thread and this blog, I would say they have available preorder’s —

I'd be really interested in this if it's moddable. I had no interest in the others since I collect cartridges for them but if I can mod this thing to have all the games I'm definitely sold.

Saw a few at Gamestop over the weekend for $30, but told myself I don't need another mini-console. That being said may go back and buy one after work.....

Best Buy also lowered this to $29.99 but its sold out for shipping.  Not sure if they even carry it in stores.

Now if I can find a controller for cheap I'll be set. But from what I see they are still 30 bucks.

Legit Answer. 

Archon - Chess.. but battle like

 

Mail Order Monsters - Custom make, battle, get more money, upgrade your monster with various styles of battle abilities that YOU like. This game even in todays standards is great. 

 

Spare Change - Just a fun game overall...

 

Wizard of Wor - The original pvp backstabbing game... 

 

Donald Ducks Playground - Great game.. even tho its for kids =p

 

Ghostbusters - Need I say why?

 

Ducks Ahoy - Die ducks die! That water will kill you!

 

also was a few great D&D style games too. =)

 Cool, thanks.

 

Hope it has good build quality and I'm hoping for a better game lineup.

I gave in at $30. I don’t have experience with the C64 so I’m looking forward to plugging this in.

The full sized version will be $199 though.

 

$30 for a mini you can hook a usb keyboard up to vs $199 for one with a working keyboard. I went with the $30 mini. I know deals people, believe me!

I won't promise how well it holds up since I haven't played it in decades but Project Firestart was (remembered as) good and is considered one of the originators of the survival horror genre.  It was also only released on the Commodore 64 unlike some other games I could mention that were on various platforms.

I loved one called Dragonfly as a kid.... I would've bought just for it.  I used to have a pc version like mame, but sadly it won't work anymore.
