Topics I've Started

Yorx Hotshot, video review and any information needed if possible

Sun Feb 16, 2014 10:16 AM

Hello all. I stumbled upon this thing on Ebay not even really looking for it but I had never seen anything like it, and I cannot find any information regarding the thing either, like when it was released. If anybody can provide any information it would be appreciated, I'd be interested to know when the thing was released, how many, and how many games were sold, but I doubt that info would be available anywhere.



I also ask the question as to what other collectors define video game players as true game systems.

Thanks

PC-Engine Duo R question

Fri Jan 3, 2014 7:38 PM

For Christmas I got myself a PC-Engine Duo R that happened to be at a local shop. So far I got a handful of games and it works fine, but I'm hoping someone can answer 1 question for me that I can't seem to find a clean answer to.

I know you can play Japanese Games on a domestic TurboDuo, CD games, but can you play USA games on a PC Engine Duo? I know HuCards won't work, but the topic for CD games always seems to be Japan to US and not the other way around.

Thanks.

something so amazingly common that you didn't know about?

Mon Aug 12, 2013 4:12 PM

I thought this might be an interesting question for collectors based on something that I somehow just found out about a couple of weeks ago. Here's the story, then the question.

I have been actively collected video games since I was around 16-17 years old, I'm 34 now, so for at least 15-17 years. At the local flea market I actually found some 2600 games. Now I am a lazy collector, so I have over 300 individual 2600 games with nothing but my memory to remind what I have and don't have. Well, it seems mixed in these games were a bunch of silver labeled games like Football and Baseball. I bought all these silver label games because in my years of collecting, I've NEVER seen silver labeled atari games like this variant. I was kind of surprised of all the games I have ever bought at all the different places, and all the games I've passed up on at different shops that I never came across these ever!!

So I come home to check rarity only to find that they're pretty common. So the question is, Has there been anything that you've collected thinking maybe it was unique only to find it's common, or anything you discovered recently out of years of collecting that you then find is common or common knowledge?

Thanks

video collecting/game room tips #1 : LED Puck lights

Tue Jun 18, 2013 8:43 PM

Hi all. I am going to start posting some videos of things that i found out that seem to be useful for collecting video games and with making/improving a game room. Here is tip#1 so far, how to use simple puck lights to accentuate game systems.

I think they look good, any feedback would be appreciated. The goal I guess with the tips is to give others ideas on how to improve their own game rooms and collections from my experience over the years.


need an NES/Famicom expert to help identify something

Sat Jun 15, 2013 7:24 PM

So I got this off of Ebay because I needed a Famicom and it was cheap. After I bought it i tried to find information on it and was unable to find anything. What I would like to know, is this official or is it a clone? The labels on it to me suggest it's official and the date of 1990 doesn't lend me to believe it's a clone like all the clone systems today.

I've never heard of the Nintendo Power Company, and could not find any info as well, so any insight would be appreciated. I don't know if maybe this was a system from a sweepstakes and was the prize or what.

Thanks.
