Our extended hiatus is over, and we're back and ready to talk games! For those that may not have listened before, Crabby and Duke take a moment to reintroduce themselves, and for returning listeners we take a little time to catch you up on what we have been up to. Of course, listener questions return to get your input. Thanks for all the encouragement on restarting the show, and we hope you enjoy!

Join us to learn what titles we threw in the towel on and why. Did we make a big mistake? Have you waved the white flag on games yourself? As always, great listener questions make a return.

Are you tired of hearing opinions on E3 yet? Well too bad, because we're here to chime in as well. We talk about the major pressers, what we think about the upcoming games, and the things we are looking forward to. Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, EA, and Ubisoft all get some time with us, and maybe some of the games we discuss will even come out this year.

Who do we think did the best job? Did we get it right or wrong? Let us know!

With RFGeneration's 2013 successful donation drive being done and over, this episode is dedicated to the generous donors that helped keep the site afloat. The small scores section will be dominated by the finds from our benevolent donors that gave through the end of the drive (Feb. 1). Feeling left out this time around? Too bad you should have given us money!!!

In addition to the sites donation drive us podcasters held a little auction to raise some extra RFGen fundage for a guest spot on the show. Our lucky (that's debatable) winner was Nupoile!! His fearless and charitable spirit saw him talking with the 3 of us about what drives him to collect, how he goes about it, and why the Odyssey 2 is so amazing.

Thanks so much to everyone who chipped in in any way (not just financially) to keep improving the best gaming database on the net. This year's donation drive was successful because of the amazing community that supports RFGeneration and keeps it growing and thriving. I know were not alone in looking forward to many more years to come of sharing our fascinating hobby through the medium of RFGeneration!!

How would YOU like to be a guest on an upcoming RFGeneration Collectorcast episode? The winner of this auction will get to join hosts Crabmaster2000, Duke.Togo, and Wildbil52 for an interview. http://www.gamegavel.com/....cgi?show_item=0000715716

This will be your chance to talk about your collection, share your passion for the hobby, and tell Crabby yourself why Super Metroid is great (or not, I suppose if you are one of THOSE people.)

All proceeds from this auction will go directly to support RFGeneration. RFGeneration is supported solely on donations, we have zero advertisements and everything on the site is completely free. Any and all donations go strictly to paying for our server costs. Well, what are you waiting for? GET BIDDING!

We have talked at length in the past about many of the quirks involved with a collectors persona. Do those oddities manifest themselves into your gaming life also? The three of us reflect on our game playing to see if our collector mentality spills over. Apparently it hits some of us harder than others Wink

We also hope you enjoy the extended Small Score part of the podcast! Extended?!!? Thats correct. With a few generous RFGeneration members donating enough money to the site to reach our coveted featured on the collectorcast target, weve added their latest pickups to the podcast in great detail. So take the time to listen to their finds for the month and hopefully it encourages more people to donate in order to keep the site running smoothly!

Do words like Reproduction, ROM Hack or Pirate Cart have any place in a collector's vocabulary? There are many fringe areas of collecting that may or may not find a home in your collection. How far removed from legitimate licensed releases are you comfortable with? If playing on the original hardware is important to you, is there a way to justify playing a back up of your games?

Where can you even get these things? Why would you want them? Are you still considered a collector if you partake?

Get our occasionally nonsensical take on such subjects as we explore the farthest reaches of physical media and collecting.

Interesting side note: If you listen to Episode 10 of the Collectorcast backwards, at full blast, and playing at half speed you might just hear the most sinister and unholy of words uttered straight from the depths of Hell... emulation!!
