    So playing this game will even be more expensive that the midquel to Pyschonauts? I love Earth Worm Jim but I am not buying a new console for a single game.

    On your lap.
    I don't know Intellevision and I only know Earthworm Jim as a 90s cartoon that I hardly remember.

    If they're trying to make a comeback, then maybe they should try and reach out to more than just fans of an obscure video game franchise.

    This Intellivision Amico makes me think about some cross-project between AtariVCS & OUYA...
    I'm not really optimistic...

    But will it be compatible with the Voice Synthesis Module?

    they're trying. hopefully they'll come up with something more, but let's call this a good first step towards relevancy.

    I love the idea of a new retro console, by why not just put them on steam or something....

    I had to look this thing up. Seems like it might be nice for the kids. At wrost, it can be hacked into an emulation machine. I know I'm going to hate the controllers though, and how would you play Earthworm Jim with those?

    This bunch of words basically explains everything
