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:

Retro Console Collecting - Interlude (Ebay Stuff)

Posted 9th November 2010 at 01:02 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Not really a full-fledged posting here, because I really do want to get more in-depth with each console in its own separate post.

No, this is more of a teaser of things to come.

Over the last couple of months I've been keeping an eye on ebay, gauging market prices for things.

Well, this weekend was the weekend of deals...plus I won one auction that was an absolute screaming steal.

If it pans out, I'll devote a whole post just to the awesomeness...

Retro Console Collecting - Part III (Expanding the Collection)

Posted 6th November 2010 at 09:12 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Hello there, once again it looks like you've managed to click the wrong link. Either that or you're actually reading some of this drivel. In which case you've probably already hit the back button on your browser already (or for the really extreme, alt+F4), but for those brave adventurous souls, I'm going to continue on with Part III of my series on retro console collecting.

In case you missed the last two installments (and just why did you do that, hmmmm?), you can check them out...

Retro Console Collecting - Part II (The Setup)

Posted 5th November 2010 at 08:07 AM by Schizo (Retro Console Collecting)

Hello everyone, and welcome back to yet another edition of Schizo's Retro Console Collecting (now with 50% more nudity!).

Since I got all the background info out of the way in my first installment (which can be read here, if you missed it - and yes, this is a shameless plug), I figured the next step would be to show you the current setup I have.

When I moved into the house, my girlfriend had an entertainment center she was no longer using. Well, it fit just perfectly in...
