    Yeah, that too! Plus, I just can't pass up a megadrive for 5 bucks in whatever state it's in Wink

    My doubles:

    Dreamcast x 5
    Saturn x 4
    Atari Lynx x 2
    Playstation 2 x 2
    Playstation 3 x 3 (ironically I only have one playstation 1)
    Megadrive (1,2) x 5
    32x x 2
    PSP x 2
    Sega CD x 2
    MSX x 2
    CD-i (various models) x 3

    I think that's it... but some stuff is still in boxes Wink

    Great variety of systems there. Is the MSX hell for a non-Japanese literate user to use? I'd love to pick one up, if for no other reason than the Metal Gear games.

    No not at all, once I get all setup I'll do some screen captures off of the thing. So far I haven't even seen any Japanese text.

    Also: Tempo, yeah... I need to start my US 32X collection Smile The games on my shelf are all the PAL releases (minus Darxide, still haven't found a reasonable cart for that one) so I'm definitely missing some. I'd love to play Tempo some time.

    That's pretty much all the CD-i is good for, when your TV is a slight too low. ;3

    Get a Laserdisc instead, way more respect and more exclusive scenes. The VCD editions of movies rarely ever had extended/deleted scenes or other features.

    I hear Laserdisc versions of movies are actually pretty awesome, so while I will be getting it eventually, I need something more awful.

    I'm digging the collections so far. Marulu, I'm lovin the Super Famicom games and your cabinet. jonlimle, do you use the Wii LCD for Virtual Console or Gamecube? I imagine playing the motion controlled Wii games with that thing could be a pain.

    Hoping to get some pictures up here myself as soon as I get some more free time to take the pictures. I don't have a dedicated game room yet at the moment, but things are set up fairly nice.

    I have barely used the wii since about a month after i got it, i mainly use the screen when i am working on homebrew for it, so i don't need to keep going back and forth between rooms to test my changes

    I'm jealous of everything that's happening here. My collection is pretty lame comparatively.

    I have a handful of SNES, Genesis, N64, Game Gear, and a few Dreamcast games...but that's about it for retro gaming.

    I'd just like to note Marulu is from Germany, PAL region SNES games and systems were styled like the Super Famicom but it's still called the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. ;3

    I should take new photos of my collection now that my shelving is nice and tidy.

    New page get. Here's some pictures after I cleaned out my shelving and re-organized the little black boxes. I also got four of those big plastic IKEA boxes to hold my controllers, adapters and A/V cables. The two empty shelves to the left of the TV will be used for four small drawers which I have not yet purchased.
    Also, free coffee table that I got for from my neighbour, happens to be from the exact same IKEA set, sweet!

    Click 'dem pictures for a better view, y'all!



    I would have been the coolest guy if I had this in 2003. Note: All four are connected via RGB SCART for the best picture quality possible.



    Really growing attached to my newfound love for LPs, these things are awesome.

    Closeups of the games:

    IMPROVED VERSION

    IMPROVED VERSION


    GTA IV case signed by none other than Jack Thompson at SGC 2009.

    You must be wondering, where are the rest of them games? They're all in those black boxes, you see! Here's more!
    IMPROVED VERSION

    CLOSE UP

    Missile Command cartridge signed by Nolan Bushnell at SGC 2009.

    I'm really surprised at the amount of SNES and N64 games I've recently accumulated and also discovered I not only have F-Zero double (there's one in the box, too), but I have F-Zero X double as well! What a coincidence. Also, I only have Banjo Tooie, gotta get my hands on Banjo Kazooie before I can play that. I'm also a big fan of Duke Nukem.
