The game itself is bad, yes. It was built up to be an exciting hit for kids to play at Christmas in 1982. So much in fact, that retailers bought WAY more stock then could every be sold based on the hype. However, people at the time liked the game. It looks bad now, but the game itself was pretty on par with the times. It wound up selling 1.5 million copies. Which would be great, except Atari was expecting to sell 4-5 million. While initial reception was positive, critics started panning the game as critics do. While it was no worse than most other games at the time, it was stil frustrating and hard to play. It could not live up to the hype that had been built and negative press built up quickly. But what was ALSO happening was a flood of cheap imitations on the market. ET is a licensed game, and like all licenses comes at a higher markup. So if you wanted to buy a game for yourself or your kid, would you buy 1 game, or 2 for the same price? Atari was also screwing around with how they handled their distributors. Just before the game went to public, but AFTER the game had been bought and shipped, Atari announced that they were cancelling every existing contract with distributors and signing with only a select few. So distributors, now pissed off and with an abundance of games that were NOT selling and with prices slashed horribly to sell games that people were quickly losing interest in, retailers put their claims to return a collective 2.5-3.5 million copies back to Atari. Atari, unable to recycle the cartridges or resell them in any way, wound up burying them in the Nevada desert. This caused the Video Game Crash of the early 80s that put a dark mark on video games until Nintendo (and in some small part other game companies) to revive later.   It was the perfect storm. An over-hyped overpriced game sold to an increasingly frustrated and over-saturated market with retailers scrambling to make a dime while Game Devs blame the market for poor sales. Some say the proverbial planets are aligning again, with way too many consoles putting way too samey games on the market at way too high a cost with a strong dependence on Pre-orders and pre-order exclusives.

Espn, Football, and Memes: There's a bigger picture most people aren't understanding about this whole kneeling thing!! The goal of the globalists is the dismantling of our American heritage, and thereby the distruction of our identity as a nation. Removing historical statues is the beginning. Removing the flag and the anthem is next. Ultimately the goal is to remove the constitution. If we keep giving in and continue to accept the dismantling of our culture and the removal of our heritage, then we become what the globalists want... A 3rd world country prime for socialist control. This tactic isn't new. It has been their game plan for a long time. There are many writings explaining this movement. We are seeing it unfold before our eyes. It's deeper than what you see on the surface. No matter how tired you are of listening to the back and forth about the flag and our anthem, you mustn't grow weary! Don't allow yourself to get to the point where you say Just stop playing the anthem at sporting events' so we can get back to football. Just letting crap go is why we're here in the first place. MAKE THIS GO VIRAL!!! The big picture This kneeling issue is bigger than most people can see. The globalist’s goal is to destroy our American heritage, taking apart our entire American identity. They remove our historical statues. Their next move is to remove the National Anthem from our sports and other activities…an act which ESPN just did with the removal of the anthem from Monday night football broadcasts. Their ultimate goal is to remove the Constitution. If we continue to cave to their agenda, if we continue to dismantle our heritage, then we will become a third world nation, ripe for the picking of socialists-communists. It’s not a new plan. It’s been around for a long time. There are written documents explaining the globalist movement. We are seeing them begin to come to fruition now. It’s deeper than just a bunch of millionaire football players. Please don’t become weary of the constant “back and forth” over the National Anthem and flag. Don’t allow yourself to say just stop the anthem like so many are doing. Letting this go is why we are in this mess in the first place. Make this go viral!

Beautiful, Confused, and Cute: Ca geekandmisandry: ptenterprises: sheisquiteacommonfairy: kaylapocalypse: alithographica: alithographica: igyid: alithographica: Liberty x Justice for all. Why did you make liberty black and justice Muslim ? So here’s a distilled explanation of Why Liberty Is Black and Why Justice Is Muslim for those who are confused by the rampant inaccuracies. I’ll spell it out. Artistic license I live in the US and the political landscape is a dumpster fire. This is a protest piece. Liberty and Justice are concepts based loosely on ancient gods from a multiracial civilization. They are also deeply American concepts, and one of the great American dreams is that we are a melting pot of equality* for all races and religions. *Terms and conditions may apply. With the political point I’m trying to make, those 3 things are more than enough to justify this depiction. (Not that it even needs justification; it’s my personal art.) Educational sidebar: A nonwhite Lady Liberty is actually well-founded: Consider that The Statue of Liberty was originally proposed by the president of the French Emancipation Society. Prior to designing the Statue of Liberty, the sculptor had wanted to build a similar piece on the Suez Canal based on an Egyptian peasant woman. This never came to fruition but became an early iteration of our American Lady Liberty. Also there’s a black Lady Liberty coin coming soon (and this coin was a major design element for Lady Liberty here). But honestly ‘accuracy’ is beside the point. For all of the questions I’ve gotten on this piece, 90% relate to the race/religion of Liberty and Justice. People are bothered by the perceived inaccuracies there and totally skip over the gay part. I imagine that Liberty and Justice kissing should, maybe, also be considered inaccurate because that’s actually where I took the biggest leap. I literally had no reason to do it except it’s that cute and gay and political. I personified the judicial system coming to protect the liberties of people legislatively marginalized for their race or religion…as two queer women. Yet somehow that is not the most inaccurate part to people. No, god forbid anyone depict two //personified concepts// as nonwhite to represent and recognize the vast marginalization of POC in this country, particularly black and Muslim communities. p.s. the fact that Libertas and Iusticia are both conceived as female by Greeks and Romans is also arbitrary maybe one or both of them are actually transwomen or genderqueer or agender because everything cultural that you hold dear is a construct have a good day Hi @ghostlune​ I can see from your blog that we just think of the world in two fundamentally different ways but I don’t think that’s reason to not have a little historical education 1. French is a nationality, not a race. You can, in fact, be black and French. What I suspect you meant is “the Statue of Liberty is a white woman”. 2. Please refer to the “Educational sidebar” section above where I discuss why a nonwhite Liberty is pretty in-line with both the French and American visions of her. It has citations and everything. It’s cool, I promise. GET 👏THEM 👏ALITHOGRAPHICA👏 This is so beautiful and amazing. Given everything happening right now and what has been happening for pretty much time immemorial, having either Liberty or Justice be white would be not only inaccurate, but an insult to both. You’re made about her erasing the whiteness of “characters” that have never been able to be confirmed as white. How do you know what race the statue of liberty is? They are unpainted fucking statues, vague visual representatives of human ideals. If you think they default to white then all that says is that white is the default to you and everything else is viewed as being a deviation.

Birthday, Energy, and Facts: Full Moon Tonight/tomorrow morning in Capricorn makes us find balance between our emotional needs and our worldly ambitions and goals. As the Sun (father) is in the sign of Cancer (mother) and the Moon (mother) is in the sign of Capricorn (father), we are being asked to balance the divine feminine and masculine as well. This Full Moon is also charged up by the energy of Mars (action and fire) and Pluto (transformation) LAW OF POSITIVISM Via @law_of_positivism - The Full Moon on the 9th of July at 12.07 AM EDT will have the Sun and Mars opposing the Moon and Pluto. With the Full Moon in Capricorn, the Universe is asking us to find balance between our roots to family and Mother Earth and the roots with society and ancestry. The sign of Capricorn is one of ambitions, hard work, patriarch, earth and structures while Cancer is all about our emotions, nurturing and motherly energies. Capricorn may seem emotionless, but they do also feel deep emotions, without expressing them as much as Cancer. The Moon will be standing with Pluto, so even the more structured and disciplined aspect of ourselves are being moved and transformed as the Sun is asking us to connect back to the Divine Mother and our deep emotional reality. It is also about gaining back the power that we have given to society to rule our lives and has desensitized so many of us. Mars standing together with the Sun gives us the fire we need to take action in order to get our own unique power back. So this Full Moon especially affect Cancers, Capricorns, Aries and Libras the most Beside being a powerful Full Moon, it is also my birthday on the 9th of July! So some facts about having a Full Moon on your birthday: it is a time of seeing hard work getting paid off and also being grateful for what has come to fruition. At the Full Moon we harvest what haw grown from our seeds and intentions and since our birthday rarely aligns with Full Moons, this is truly a powerful time of completion and endings and blooming out fully energetically. Are there anymore Cancers here with their birthday on the 9th? How will YOU do the best you can to harvest the energies of this Full Moon?🌸 capricorn capricornfullmoon fullmoon fullmooncapricorn lawofpositivism meditation dailyaffirmations astrology numerology 111 1111 444 222 mindful mindfulness positiveenergy lawofattraction positiveaffirmations yoga meditation buddha buddhism healingenergy reiki kundalini sohum moonchild awakespiritual

So much in fact, that retailers bought WAY more stock then could every be sold based on the hype. However, people at the time liked the game.

It could not live up to the hype that had been built and negative press built up quickly. But what was ALSO happening was a flood of cheap imitations on the market. ET is a licensed game, and like all licenses comes at a higher markup. So if you wanted to buy a game for yourself or your kid, would you buy 1 game, or 2 for the same price? Atari was also screwing around with how they handled their distributors. Just before the game went to public, but AFTER the game had been bought and shipped, Atari announced that they were cancelling every existing contract with distributors and signing with only a select few. So distributors, now pissed off and with an abundance of games that were NOT selling and with prices slashed horribly to sell games that people were quickly losing interest in, retailers put their claims to return a collective 2.5-3.5 million copies back to Atari. Atari, unable to recycle the cartridges or resell them in any way, wound up burying them in the Nevada desert. This caused the Video Game Crash of the early 80s that put a dark mark on video games until Nintendo (and in some small part other game companies) to revive later.   It was the perfect storm. An over-hyped overpriced game sold to an increasingly frustrated and over-saturated market with retailers scrambling to make a dime while Game Devs blame the market for poor sales. Some say the proverbial planets are aligning again, with way too many consoles putting way too samey games on the market at way too high a cost with a strong dependence on Pre-orders and pre-order exclusives. Wanna give the game a shot?  Internet Archives actually has a copy of it at this link: https://archive.org/details/E.T._The_Extra-Terrestrial_1982_Atari_NTSC this is like the dutch tulip bubble of our times

Memes, 🤖, and Spaces: Remember the vision. Even when others don't see it, even when others don't get it, and even when you feel like you're not supported. Stay true to bringing your dreams and desires to fruition. Nothing is out of your reach, but you do need to keep a space that is free of judgment, negativity and draining energy. It's easy for us to lose ourselves in the opinions of others. Be mindful that you deserve to flourish in a life of happiness, joy and abundance. Remain grounded, keep moving forward, and journey freely. Hey you Yes you reading this You were born beautiful You still are, don't let society convince you otherwise. You are powerful so when you look in the magazines, when you listen to the radio, when you watch a TV show, when you see a poster that is materialistic, superficial and shallow, just laugh out loud... Because you know deep down that it is bullsh*t, the people write this f*ckry are just as insecure as you and I. I know some people who are considered celebrities, they are human beings with fears, insecurities and doubts. It's all an industry, they are selling you an unrealistic lifestyle. If everybody loved the life of a celebrity, I would have never had a decent conversation in my life. It's funny how books have never made me feel insecure, but how many hours do you spend reading books, compared to how many hours you spend reading magazines, listening to superficial radio, watching "reality" TV, at the movies and on Instagram scrolling accounts all about money, never taking into account how many people must have to be poor and suffering for these lifestyles to exist... The most confident people I have ever met are elderly people and children. Elderly people have seen it all, they have a wiser perspective on life, reality to them is based on their lives, not the lives of others. Looks have faded but characters have developed. Generally they don't let the thoughts of others hold them back. Children don't know what it is to be insecure, they are creative, bold, they world hasn't stolen their joy, they haven't been disheartened by bills, they aren't aware of what colour they are, they don't know what money is, they aren't religious, God has no religion. They haven't let society make them insecure. So what I will say to you my beautiful friend is this... You were born innocent, without flaws that you know or care of... You die not caring about what people think of your perceived flaws. It is your choice to not to worry in between. If you always listen to others you will never live your life, you will live they life, but you cannot because you are not them and they are not you. You are a soul with its own purpose. chakabars

Android, Memes, and Siri: My wife asked me why i carry a gun around the house. I told her it's because i'm afraid of the CIA. She laughed, I laughed, the amazon echo laughed, I shot the echo. FREETHOUGHTPROJECTCOM 💭 Is Alexa currently spying on you?... 👁 REPORT (link to article in Bio): Amazon’s Echo built upon the voice search capability of Android’s ‘Ok Google’ and Apple’s Siri and turned it into a device that is capable of doing everything from answering questions to turning on your air conditioner. . However, like all beneficial technology, when the government gets involved, this useful household item is converted into a spying machine for the surveillance state. . In a seemingly unprecedented case out of Bentonville, Arkansas, the latest example of how police can use your technology against you is coming to fruition. . Investigators in Bentonville have filed search warrants with Amazon, requesting the recordings made on a man’s Echo device between November 21 and November 22, 2015. The recordings belong to James A. Bates, who was charged with murder after a man was strangled to death in a hot tub. . According to CNET, while investigating, police noticed the Echo in the kitchen and pointed out that the music playing in the home could have been voice activated through the device. While the Echo records only after hearing the wake word, police are hoping that ambient noise or background chatter could have accidentally triggered the device, leading to some more clues. . “It is believed that these records are retained by Amazon.com and that they are evidence related to the case under investigation,” police wrote in the search warrant. . According to court documents, Amazon has yet to concede to the search warrant and has not sent any recordings to police. . However, according to police, Amazon may not have to send over the files for cops to get them. According to the warrant, police believe they can tap into the hardware on the Echo, which could “potentially include time stamps, audio files or other data,” reports CNET.... . - Continued - . 💭 Read the FULL Report (Link in Bio): http:-thefreethoughtproject.com-amazon-echo-saves-voice-data-police- 💭 Join Us: @TheFreeThoughtProject 💭 TheFreeThoughtProject AmazonEcho 💭 LIKE our Facebook page & Visit our website for more News and Information.

Memes, Homeland, and Southwest: Private prisons back Trump and could see big payoffs with new policies @17th soulja Trump has made America great again by bringing slavery back 👨🏽‍🌾WASHINGTON — Private prison companies, which stand to make big gains under President Trump’s tough new immigration orders, also have contributed big sums to pro-Trump groups, including the organization that raised a record $100 million for his inauguration last month.GEO Group, one of the nation’s largest for-profit prison operators, donated $250,000 to support Trump’s inaugural festivities, Pablo Paez, the company’s vice president of corporate relations, told USA TODAY. That’s on top of the $225,000 that a company subsidiary donated to a super PAC that spent some $22 million to help elect the real-estate magnate. Another prison operator, CoreCivic, gave $250,000 to support Trump’s inauguration, recently filed congressional reports show. For-profit prison companies' hopes for significant gains under the Trump administration already are coming to fruition. On Thursday, the Justice Department rescinded an Obama administration order to phase out the use of private-prison contracts in the federal Bureau of Prisons.Earlier this week, the Department of Homeland Security issued sweeping new instructions to carry out Trump’s executive orders on immigration. They require all federal agents — including Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) — to identify, capture and quickly deport undocumented immigrants. Significantly for private-prison operators, the orders also require that undocumented people caught entering the country be detained until their cases are resolved, ending the “catch and release” program in which undocumented immigrants were processed by immigration agents, released into the USA and ordered to reappear for court hearings. The new directives call for construction of more jails along the southwest border to accommodate the additional detainees. About 65% of Homeland Security detainees last year were held in privately run facilities. @chididdy26 17thsoulja BlackIG17th
