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...

Retro Console Collecting - Part IV (Ebay Highs and Lows)

Posted 3rd December 2010 at 01:14 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

After far too long of a hiatus, I have made my triumphant return! Real life is such a PITA sometimes, and I've just not had the chance to brag (bLOg, I meant blog...just two letters off there) about some of my recent finds/purchases/outbid/omgwtfbbq experiences on ebay over the last two months to grow the collection.

So I'm back, and glad you're all with me here.

*crickets chirping*

So we'll start off with my experiences and prices paid so far:

Talera vs The Movie Habit

Posted 1st December 2010 at 02:43 PM by Talera

I have a strange habit. I watch a lot of movies. This in itself is not strange, the fact that no matter how crap it is I have to watch until the end is. I have never walked out of a cinema.

Talera vs Working out of town

Posted 24th November 2010 at 02:17 PM by Talera

You wonít hear me talk much about my employment on here. What I do say will be fairly limited.

For work lately I have been out of town a lot. Now I have a laptop for work, but canít access most sites and also canít check my home email. Surprisingly enough, this frustrates the hell out of me. It isnít that I canít play computer games or anything. No itís that I perform most of my communications with others electronically now, via email or the dreaded FB.

So when I work...

The Kids These Days with Their Fast-Paced MMOs

Posted 21st November 2010 at 03:57 PM by daranthered (Hello! I am Error.)
Tags mmorpg

Like many of you who will read this, I enjoy MMORPGs. I've been playing them off and on (mostly on) since the late 90's. I started with Asheron's Call, took a detour through Everquest, City of Heroes, Star Wars Galaxies, and I have found a comfortable existence in Lord of the Rings Online, and World of Warcraft, with the odd attempt now and then to give myself a seizure in Perfect World. While some of you may count this a thin resume, I feel that it gives me a certain pedigree in the world of...
