Retro I want but don't have:
(in no particular order)
  • MSX
  • Acorn Archimedes with more than 1MB RAM (I have an A3010, but it's only 1MB and won't run a lot of games)
  • DivIDE for Speccy
  • a working BBC Micro (mine's broke)
  • Neo Geo AES or MVS (£££££££)
  • an arcade cab
  • Commodore 128
  • Commodore Amiga 4000 or 4000T
  • SX-1 or SX-32 for Commodore Amiga CD32
  • Commodore Amiga CDTV with keyboard, floppy, mouse and IR controller!
So I'm not demanding a lot there - and being as it's my birthday on 25th September, I'll have to wait and see what I receive :wink: hint hint :wink:

I'd love a full size arcade machine of either Ninja Turtles or the Simpsons... but I have nowhere to put it :-(

Right now I'd love to get homebrew working on my PSP but am having no luck, despite the many guides on the internet and Youtube videos!

Holes that need plugging in my collection:

Ultimas 1, 2 and 6, and the expansions to 7
Wizardry 2
Maniac Mansion
Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
Loom
The Dark Queen of Krynn

They're all fairly available in various conditions and releases, but I'm after the original 'complete with bits' versions of each.

Tecno Soft soundtrack CDs 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15. I've stopped looking for these on a regular basis, but they're always at the back of my mind.

Holy grail item - A Gravitar arcade machine. They turn up on US ebay from time to time, but I never see them over here.

One day when I'm rich enough and more settled in life I would like to restart my Sega Saturn collection from scratch. I know from when I done it before (around 2002) it was the most exciting time I've ever had in my 20+ years of being a gamer. There's just something about the Saturn and it's games which makes me excited, and helps me play to my full ability. Any avid Saturn gamer will know where I'm coming from.

My Shopping list (aka Dear Santa I have been a good boy for a whole year. I want....)

Complete set of all ZX Spectrums (Currently only got plus and plus2)
Collection of peripherals for the above
Collection of all important games titles for the above.
Sinclair QL
2600 woody
Vectrex
Some nice Game and Watches

MAME Cab (Currently a work in progress)
G-LOC 360 Cab (if in fact you can call it a cab, more of a .......monster)
Space Harrier Hydraulic Sit-Down cab
Original Hang-On sit-on bike with the screen in the fairing.

These are the things that mean the most. I don't own any 8 or 16 bit consoles, and don't really have the desire to. Not got anything against them, far from it, I just don't really clamour after them? Sinclair was where it was at for me in the 80's so a good collection like the above would be quality.

Collecting shooters for the Saturn got me collecting shooters for the DC, which I love collecting even more.

A cheap Neo Geo AES console would be good or the key to vector sigma both as easy to get as the other.

I'd like to finish my mame cab, but is unlikely due to lack of space.
