Retro Console Collecting - Part XII (Schizo Resurrects a Console From the Dead)

Posted 12th October 2013 at 10:25 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Welcome back for yet another installation of Retro Console Collecting - the blog that promises updates, and never delivers!

In my defense, I'll contend that I'm faster at posting blogs than Congress is at passing a budget! Oh hey, did I just make a political joke? I must really be scraping the bottom of the barrel here.

Anyway, for those of you who are long time readers (and haven't hung yourselves yet), you may remember a few years back I managed to win an Ebay auction...

Retro Console Collecting - Part XI (Craigslist Finally Comes Through!)

At the rate I've been posting updates, I'll be lucky to average a post a month since I started this thing. Oh well, you can't rush greatness.

Which would hold true if my ramblings could be equated to greatness. Or even medicoreness. Is that even a word? You know the quality of your writing is poor when you make up words (and your last name is not Seuss).

Anyways...

For those of you with long memories, you may recall one of my early posts dealt with...

Retro Console Collecting - Part X (The Holy Grail)

Posted 9th November 2012 at 06:19 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Oh dear. The cobwebs. The dust. I think I even saw a few cockroaches scurrying their way through here. And who left the back door unlocked? I think I saw a few squatters comment spammers camping out in here.

Well, we cleared all that riff-raff out. Time for a little spit & polish, a little elbow grease, (a lot of booze), and we're gonna make this place shine again.

(In other words, I am totally going to start making regular updates and articles again)

Retro Console Collecting - Part IX (I Suck At Updating)

Posted 21st April 2011 at 05:34 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Woah.

You're still here reading this? I applaud your tenacity. I've been far too busy lately with work/life/world domination to post a proper update lately.

Well, here goes.

Managed to pick up the following games off of ebay:
I may be forgetting some others, but I've not had great luck lately in scoring complete in box versions of games in halfway decent condition...
