Posted under vectrex, restoration

Just picked up a vectrex off ebay with a multi cart for 100 bucks shipped. Had it a week been playing minestorm while I wait for the multicart to arrive. Not sure if everything is ok but minestorm plays well now that I fixed the controller-it needed a cleaning to work also ordered a new overlay for it as its current one was damaged (likely from previous cleanings and play) cool little system.

Posted under Accessories, Drums

Went out and bought the new rock band 2 drum set when I found out I couldn't add cymbals to my original drum set from rock band (so now I have two!) my old kit was modded with a metal pedal (like they've now done with the new kit, but mine is still much cooler) and I added blacked out silencers (again cooler looking, and quieter) this new kit is quieter though than stock original set. The best part though is the ability to add cymbals for 30 bucks and its wireless (damn cord was always ending up unplugged.)

Posted under Genesis

Got my genesis repros in that I bought off a guy who makes them quite regularly very nice work actually but sadly no artwork. They all work great so far and it seems to be all sega parts(?) anyway I picked up: Gleylancer, Pulseman, and twinkle tale all for 90 bucks shipped. I feel pretty good about this considering loose official carts would cost me at least double based on my surfing of ebay and other sites. Plus its all in english to which is nice.

Still waiting on my Neo Stuff. But having a blast right now if it weren't for these games and weekends I think I'd go crazy right now (school!!) midterms were this week (some of next week to) I'm actually doing pretty well though. The games help its like therapy maybe not cheap therapy but it helps. Its a great escape

Posted under PS3, PS3

I'm really loving this beast. Started running Life with Playstation which I have been running the PC version of for years now. Very cool use for all that power (one nice thing about my 40 gig its more efficient than other PS3 models so less energy bills) I do however wish I'd shelled out an extra 100-150 bucks to buy a 60 gig so I could have an emotion engine chip but the cheap SOB in me said no just get another PS2 if you want to play PS2 games that bad. I bought used to though I don't really mind that. Loving the games (finally played some GT5 prologue) and my Time Crisis 4 just arrived with the amazing new Guncon 3 bought my copy new for 60 bucks which was actually the best price I could find from a retailer great thing about the Time Crisis games is they hold their value and often go up. And I tracked down an HDMI cable at monoprice for 6 bucks shipped crazy deal considering retail is like 30-50 typically,so soon I can game in HD (my tv can do up to 1080i I have access to another with 1080p but rarely) anyway so far so good hopefully though they will come out with some new games soon cause after GT5 and TC4 I don't have much to play on it.

My Neo Geo stuff is on the way so that will be my next post (big one! Pics hopefully) also have some Genesis games on the way (gleylancer, pulseman, and another I can't think of)

Posted under PS3, PS3 games

I finally did it and bought a PS3 I've been drooling over this magnificient machine since its release and have nearly bought one many times finally this week while visiting a local game shop I saw a used (no box, some scratches) 40 gig ps3 on sale now I love this shop and I wanted a PS3 and I had the money for once to buy it. So I did. I found out when I got home that I overpaid by about 20 bucks but thats ok I love this shop and they need my support. Anyway I've been having a blast with it so far playing the following:

Ferrari challenge
Everyday shooter
lingering wake (interactive art)
motorstorm
Gran Turismo 5

And I have a copy of Time Crisis 4 with guncon on the way (and I have the big screen to play this bad boy on!) I need to get an HDMI cable though running composite just seems wrong!

Also I've got a wonderswan crystal and Judgement silversword coming
and am looking into finally beggining my Neo Geo AES collection after having had a nice Neo Geo Pocket collection in the past.
