Re: Renting videotapes

God, I miss the video-store. As a kid my best friend Andrew and I used to sneak into the off-limits adults section of the video-store complete with sliding curtain for privacy. We would often get a good 20 minutes perv on the backs of the tape covers before being chased out of the store. No matter ...

Re: Your Recent 'Other' Purchases

The most remarkable thing about that picture wasn't the presence of your hand but rather the Vectrex and that distinguished gentleman Pac Man:) Still, i must see your eyes, the real window to who you are;)))) I love the Vectrex. Got my first one many years ago, I swapped a meat sandwich & a few cig...

Re: Nintendo Switch Discussion

I'll be getting a Switch regardless, maybe a pair so that we don't have to share. :wink: Seems like what I've always wanted - a massive handheld/gaming tablet/console hybrid. It's too bad that the 'wii u' controller can't be utilized in a similar fashion. (A friend of mine snidely refers to it as th...

Re: Reasons to get a PS3

We finally broke down (it was time) and grabbed one around Christmas. For 30-40 years I've stayed a generation behind the curve for various reasons, it's always served me well. We've been gathering the hits at a decent clip, as well....trying to build a 'best of' before really settling into any seri...

Re: Grenfell Tower, London fire.

There is currently a 'go fund me' set up for those that wish to give. Currently at 23,000 pounds out of a 50,000 goal. Cash is king, of course, but it's just a shame that I'm so far away; I've got plenty of spare clothing/blankets/dry goods/toiletries/tinned foods/bottled water/etc. A terrible trage...

Re: Retron 77

Eh, they look fine. Wondering how they are able to mimic those designs (2600 & NES) so closely and not catch a cease & desist letter, though.

I've got a couple of the 'Retrons' around here somewhere. Also a small silver one called (I believe) 'Yobo'.

Re: Introduce yourself

I envy you!! I stick to mainly emulation for older consoles like the megadrive. One day I want to collect snes games though as I never had one growing up.... I avidly collected for many years, beginning in the late 70s. At one point (in my early 30s) I had several rooms filled with stuff as well as...

Re: Introduce yourself
