So it looks like I need to find a copy of Super Blockbuster to complete the set. Which seems silly since I don't have an actual working unit anyway, but that's what the voice in my head tells me I need to do.
We call our Genesis setup the Franken-console. A Gen 1 Genesis, 32-X, and Gen 2 CD. It's modded for S-Video and we love it.
I burned all of the games onto Litescribe CD's, made custom inserts and used thin DVD cases. I have all but 3 or 4 since they didn't play very well. The entire collection fits on 6 shelves of a small bookcase. The orange ones are 32-X CDs.
My long-winded point is, for all those saying "let's wait and see" or "I don't get the criticism" kind of misses the spirit of a discussion forum like this. Of course the "knowledge group" is going to blow holes in initiatives like this.
I hadn't thought of this. Changes the way I view this and other threads like it entirely. Thanks for shining a light for me.
If I violated any terms of AtariAge by posting this here, sorry. Just let me know and I will remove it. We are just trying to get the word out to anyone who might be interested and I thought this is a place full of people like ourselves.
Like CVGA, I also have mine alphabetical by publisher. Although I have an easier time keeping mine organized since it's not the size of a room. BTW, I'm showing your pic to my wife if she ever complains about my collection.
I remember when big flatscreens started coming down in price. Everyone went for the biggest one they could, but many were too big for their rooms. If you sit too close to a tv for your eyes to take in the entire picture without moving, your sub-conscious will actually pan them back and forth. Nausea, headaches and even migraines can result. Don't even get me started on mounting an LCD as close to the ceiling as you can...
Prices are going up on Atari stuff due to a perfect storm of GenX middle-aged nostalgia (we ARE Generation 8-bit after all), disposable hobby money (see the "middle-aged" part), retro-themed pop culture like the Dump Dig documentary, the book Ready Player One (soon to be a major motion picture, which makes it worse), the horrible Pixels movie, Stranger Things, and curious millennial nerds who want to see how their parents gamed and computed.
I just try to be patient and wait until the Fad wears out. Prices will come down, but it will be years before they return to the bargain bin level.
