About Me

My name is Ashley, and I am an avid gamer!

My first video game system was the Atari 2600, but my heart belongs to Intellivision. I always had a fascination with that system, and even today, I still do. Ever since Mattel Electronics threw their hat into the ring against Atari, I have always had a soft spot for the underdog system in any console war...even today!

 

On Christmas Eve in 1983, my Mom allowed us to open our presents early, and behold! Under the tree was a brand new Intellivision II. Needless to say that once my Mom gave me permission to use it that night, I played my very first all-night gaming marathon!

I was there for the Great Video Game Crash in the 80's, and it was a sad day for me. While I understood why it happened [and I it is destined to happen again], I was bummed out that my Intellivision was being discontinued by Mattel, then INTV Corp.

 

I currently have Atari 2600, Mattel Intellivision, Commodore 128D, Sega Master System, Sega Genesis, Sega 32X, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, and Microsoft Xbox. I also have the Sega Nomad and game.com handheld systems too.

 

I am a die-hard game collector, and I have many games for the above systems. In fact, I currently have all games for Intellivision, game.com, 32X, Saturn, Dreamcast, and Xbox. I also have many import games from Japan, Brazil, and the UK...

 

You can hear me on my talk-radio show that airs LIVE every Wednesday night in the Boston area on The Gag Order Network. The show is called "Bottoms Up: Appetite for Discussion" and can be heard at 8-10PM eastern standard time at www.gagordernetwork.com

 

See you on the gaming grid, programs!

 

- Ash

    RETRO GAMING. F**K YEAH !!!

    In particular, Intellivision, Commodore 64, and Sega Saturn. Great consoles that never fully got their due, until now...!!!
  • Currently Playing
    Whatever I can get my hands on that is retro, especially for systems such as Mattel Electronics Intellivision and Sega Saturn!

    Now if I could only somehow get my hands around a modded Xbox Original, or correctly burn a homebrew Dreamcast game.

    So many games, so little time. But the classics will never go out of style !!!
