I still love the Sega Master System

Above is a picture of one of my first gaming memories. The Sega Master System. The one pictured is the very same I played on back in the 90’s, obviously a little banged up but still works like a dream. Above are the Master System games that are currently in my collection. Most are, once…

The Cost of Retro Gaming (on original equipment)

I was thinking about my retro gaming collection the past week and how my collecting has unfortunately slowed down (for various reasons) … and thought I’d discuss some of the challenges I’ve had when it comes to retro gaming. Maybe there are people considering collecting for retro gaming or ones who share the same sentiments…

Sonic Adventure (Review)

Most would argue Sonic Adventure doesn’t need a review, however in a world where every new 3D Sonic title is ragged on for being buggy and a poor representation of Sonic. Sonic Adventure reminds us that Sonic can be 3D it just hasn’t been done right in quite long time. Now I’m not going to…

I…

I accidentally.. every console (PART 4)

So I went to my Dad’s place, curious about what consoles he had lying around. Being invested in console gaming at this point, I felt it my duty to find and restore these treasured possessions and see if they still work. I bundled them in boxes and took them to my house and worked with…

I accidentally.. every console (PART 3)

My Dad used to be a console collector of sorts when he was younger. Some of which he collected personally when he was into video gaming himself, and some which he was given years after the consoles were in their heyday (Something I’m pretty glad he did). I don’t remember exactly, but one of the…
