Actually, I think the Master Systems are quite stabile compared to NES.. Of my NES systems only 2 take ALL my games, where the rest take some or only a few. My master systems take all I have, every machine works. Maybe a coincidence ..

Shall I buy it?

I have been offered this one for about £18. Shall I buy? (It's the Power 3000 version). Don't know much about it, thought I'd check with you guys...;-)

Even though I have 8 NES machines, I wouldn't wait 2 seconds to buy another if I find it somewhere costing £2 - like most of the others I have. I just can't walk by.....

Optimus, I'm surprised you have so much hardware and so little software, unless those are just the highlights. True, these are just the cartridges and prints for atari/nintendo/neogeo etc. I don't have a list of the games I have for c64, c128, A500 etc. I must have, if not thousands, several hundre...

Show me your collection

Since I'm new to this forum I don't know if this thread has been made before - have searched with no result. I'm just curious - what do you all have in your collections? And what's on top of your wish lists... ;-) Here's mine: Machines: - Super Action Set Adman Grandstand SD-050 Amstrad CPC 6128 Ata...

I can't even begin to imagine how much $ they have missed by using that method.. The artists making music for today's games get very well paid. Just saw an interview with the guy who's making music for the Hitman series (he is a dane :-)) - don't think he needs anything in his life..

Book of gaming history

Hey guys - the new guy has a question. I've been checking out the first couple of pages here and found a thread where game books are being discussed. I'm looking for a book - or encyclopedia - where ALL consoles through history are mentioned. Is this possible? Of course, if games and so on is mentio...
