Retro Console Collecting - Interlude 3 (Merchandise!)

Posted 22nd December 2010 at 12:11 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

With a title like that, you'd think I'd be starting to sell t-shirts or something. Well, I'm not.

Unless you'd buy them. Hey, I gotta get money to feed this expensive habit somehow!

Well, today it is time for yet another interlude. Unfortunately, there has been very little to update all of you on in terms of the collection expanding. I swore off any buying until the holidays are over, and I've not had a chance to get in-depth about some of the consoles and games...

Oh Christmas List, Oh Christmas List.

How to Lose at Video Games Without Really Trying

Posted 13th December 2010 at 04:58 AM by daranthered (Hello! I am Error.)

By most standards I'm a pretty good loser. As a tactical thinker a generally treat a loss as feedback that helps to refine my strategy. Though I'm not one of those people who picks up a game and runs straight through it, I usually take comfort in the fact that after a few runs through, I'm pretty hard to beat.

Sometimes I am reminded that my attitude is by no means the prevalent view among gamers, especially amongst the younger generation. it seems like you can't play an MMO, or...

Posted 9th December 2010 at 02:38 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)
Updated 22nd December 2010 at 12:12 AM by Schizo

Greetings once again! I promise this post will be much shorter than my last one, and for once, I won't be talking about console collecting and me me me. Nope, I'm going to talk about a documentary that fits in quite nicely with the whole retro gaming theme of this blog.

I speak of this movie: The King of Kong.


The documentary chronicles the attempt to break the long-standing...
