General Retro Discussion

Recommended Posts

As I’m planning on reducing my retro collection to just the SNES and Mega Drive to make it much more manageable and focused I’m planning on getting rid of a lot of my other consoles. This is going to include the Panasonic Q. I thought I would check here first in case any of you guys were interested as I’d be happy to do you lot a better deal.

Well, it is sad to hear that you're reducing down your collection that drastically but... it is your collection so of course I respect that and I understand as I've been taking stock too.

Although, when you say that you're reducing down to just SNES and Mega Drive...

Does that mean that you're getting rid of N64, GC, DC, PS1, PS2, Xbox, handhelds and obscurities?

I would be interested in the Panasonic Q... maybe not right this second though, unless you were interested in trades? As there are some SNES and MD games I can trade.

It would depend on what you're after though, also I've noticed a lot of other collectors are having similar cutbacks to their collections, maybe it's a good time to trade?

Anyway, thanks for the heads-up, I'm potentially interested in a few things depending on what they are, even though I'm being selective now and I wish you the best. :peace:

I'm at the stage of putting things into boxes and sorting through so if I can offer any tips then I'm happy to do so but if there are any games you are after then let me know.

2019 seems to be becoming the year of games collection culling and/or curation. :p

It does make sense though if it makes games easier to play and enjoy in the long run, even if the decisions can be tricky to make at first, it does get easier.

Hope you won't regret this in 10 years time. :p

Also what's with the retro avatar (yes I consider it retro at this point :p)?

It’s me in my Garrus mask and hoodie. Paid enough for the bloody thing so I need to show it off where I can :p

I’m in no rush to get rid of anything yet so if you want to look through my retro collection in the link in my sig then feel free. I’m only keeping Mega Drive & SNES for the actual collection and then I’ll probably keep NES and Atari because they are still my original consoles.

Very sad to hear that.  I'd be very happy to take THPS2 for GBA off your hands though.  Been meaning to pick it up again at some point and I'd like a non-fake, non-manky copy, so I'd give it a happy home :) 

 

Oh! That reminds me! As a random aside, since we no longer have a Buy/Sell thread.  I know it's not retro, but would anyone be interested in a copy of Tetris Effect for PS4? I got a duplicate for Xmas (Actually got two duplicates! But I've already gotten rid of one of them :laughing:), and can't really be arsed to deal with eBay again.

 

I'm happy to basically give it away.

I'm happy to basically give it away as long as someone pays for the shipping.

I'd be very interested. :D

Just bought my early access ticket for Birmingham Gaming Market in July. Planning on going there with @Goafer and spending way too much money on SNES and Mega Drive games!

I just came across this fantastic video:

An in-depth analysis of Ocarina of Time's plot & aesthetics.

We've been taking OoT's quality - and impact on the videogame industry - for granted for so many years now, I feel that people tend to not discuss the game's actual content much these days. In light of that, this analysis came as a breath of fresh air, and even pointed out a few things I had never considered. Plus, it's very well edited and put together, gripping from beginning to end.

I really hope some of the Sega owned Arcade games in this video make it across to Sega Ages on the Switch.

Golden Axe: The Revenge of Death Adder and Outrunners in particular. :D

Such a great video from Sega Lord X, it definitely echoes my sentiments when it comes to videogames and collecting as a hobby. :peace:

There are many reasons that people are into gaming and collecting, it's far deeper than a "childish pastime" which some might have you believe.

This just makes me even more determined to put more time into playing games and organising my game room.
