As many of you know, I typically blog about 2600 games, but my other passion is collecting for the Vectrex.  For those of you who are also enthusiasts, I just wanted to send out some updates regarding the Vectrex community for anyone who might be interested.

John Dondzila is still going strong and creating some great games for the Vectrex at:

Fury Unlimited is still putting out a few good homebrews:

Vectrexians (a Galaxian clone) is now available for order and a few other homebrews are currently in development.  Vectrexians comes with a box and an overlay:

It appears that the RecycledGamer is putting together some more homebrew lightpens for sale (see post dated 1/26/2011).  AtariAge members were picking them up earlier for only $35!!!!  A considerable discount considering the original pens sell for a few hundred.  A buddy and I are currently working on creating some light pens just for fun, but they will be no where near the quality of these.  Stay tuned:  http://www.atariage.com/f...d05dea8716720b5e30303702f
