Woo hoo!

Just been to visit the folks and they've found my old Galaxy Twinvader. The box is a bit tatty and its incredibly yellowed, but I don't care as I thought it was binned years ago. Turns out my sister kept it. Dad put batteries in and it still works perfectly. Not sure I could still loop the score or level counter now though. I'll post a pic later.

Anywhere from £60-£70 on average. A couple years ago you could find one for £40, while my copy cost £63 shipped. I have no complaints even if it is steep.

Really good set up you have there.

I would love a MAME cab and pinball too but I am resigned to only having this if I ever move to a bigger house :cry:

Over the last 5 years I have thrown so many old computer magazines out. Looking at your room makes me think I should have kept the, 'just in case'.

Still steep, but better than the Pal version then..

I was extremely impressed until I noticed that Harvet Moon on th 64 was upside down.

You have let yourself down and you have let everyone down on this forum.

Bow your head in shame.

Seriously, great collection mate. I would love some of those 64 titles. Maybe when I have got all the hardware I want.

:D

Well, I squash it all in there. It's not so roomy anymore. The pinball table needs some help (sound IC seems gone). A Mame cab alone shouldn't take up too much space. There's gotta be a free hallway somewhere. ;)

Yeah, I had chucked most of my mags as a kid and ended up regretting it. So now I collect them.

Actually it's deliberate. Sort of. All the ends are printed the same way but for some reason HM64 is reversed, so I'd actually have to stack it backside up to get them to line up on the ends. So I chose to still have it frontside up... silly Natsume ;)

I knew there would be a good explanation.

Great collection by the way!

Partially inspired by Mayhem, I've bought some 'Billy' shelves (if you click on the picture you'll get an higher res 1600x1200 one):


Image
PS2 on the left and Xbox on the right.

PS2 on the left and Xbox on the 2 topmost right, then one shelve with Xbox 360, and 2 with GC, and the few Wii games I got in the bottom right corner (on top of some GC games).


I'll start filling the 2 other shelves I got soon. With DC and Saturn most likely.
