  1. Hey Jess, There's no single reason really. I just got busy with some other projects that took all my time. It's been 100% Albert for many years now. I'm glad he's kept the site thriving! It's been fun visiting the site again recently, and seeing some familiar names.
  2. Fish! Good to hear from you. I'm scared to ask what your collection is like now. Maybe I'll stop by more often...
  3. BM, you'll have to take that up with the new owner. Wow, I hope you get it straightened out! Anyway, I've accepted an offer. Thanks to all who were interested! The Vectrex is now moving on to a new home. I'll miss her!
  4. Okay, the gallery is updated with box photos. Vectrex Gallery I'm going to close the offer period after Monday, February 1st (tomorrow). I'll take the best offer at the end of the day. I'll send an update to everyone who has made an offer so far, and give everyone the opportunity to counteroffer for the last day. If you want to get on the list, send me an offer or just send me a PM saying you want to get on the list. I'll let you know what the high offer is. Thanks!
  5. A few people have asked if I'm interested in trading. Sorry, I'm not actively collecting any more so I'm not interested in classic game trades. I am however interested in a 24" Apple LED Cinema Display. This one: Apple Cinema Display I know it's a remote possibility, but if you've got one I'd be willing to trade my Vectrex collection + cash for the display.
  6. HOLY COW ME ZOMG!!!1111!!!one A few people have asked what kind of ballpark I'm thinking of for a price. Fair question. I don't have a good answer right now. Something less than eBay though. I'm not trying to get top dollar, just something reasonable. I didn't put a price on it because I don't actively collect any more so I only have a rough idea of the collector value. But I realize that isn't very helpful so I'm going to do a little research and put a price out there. If anyone wants to make an offer in the mean time, shoot me a pm. Thanks!

  8. Haha. That is just....wrong. Maybe you are right and this is Albert posting. Was there ever an Alex? You may never know!
  9. Well that's a bit embarrassing. I hope you enjoy my half implemented, almost-never-updated personal blog.
  10. Hey all, Yes, it's true, I'm selling my collection. Slowly but surely when I have free time. I just don't care about having the actual games in my house any more. Well, mostly. I'll admit there is an emotional satisfaction to slotting a cartridge into a vintage machine. But my games take up a lot of space and mostly sit in boxes. I still like to play classic games, but I primarily use emulators, multi-carts, and classic collections on modern systems. My collection has been scanned, documented, etc, so I feel okay letting it go to other people who will hopefully enjoy it more. But, I really dislike eBay and may sell the rest of it via AA. I just got some negative feedback from someone who didn't even tell me there was a problem (apparently damaged in transit). I've offered a full refund, but that's eBay for you. I'd rather just deal with AA people I think. Next up are my boxed Activision, Parker Brothers, Absolute, and Apollo games. Any interest? And no, my special edition homebrew and my signed games are not for sale. Gotta keep something! I was just looking at my boxed Qb the other day. Andrew Davie did a hell of a job with that, and it's part of what made me fall in love with this hobby in the first place.

    Idiot!

    Yes, I am the idiot trying to justify my stupid crap. I guess my devious plan of retiring early on international surcharges has been foiled. It's because of attitudes like this that I simply no longer ship internationally. It takes too much time and I have to deal with too many insults. Life is too short. Try to enjoy it.

    zellers

    In the past there were dozens of games attributed to Zellers. We realized that Zellers games are just pirates and are indistinguishable from other pirates when taken as a loose cartridge, so we comprised our list only of games that we have confirmed the red Zellers box with the Zellers name. I have never seen a Scuba Diver box so we have never listed it. There are a few games that I suspect are Zellers but we would rather list them as uknown until we can confirm they were part of the Zellers packaging line (confirm with a box). All the current Zellers titles I have confirmed with a box, even if we don't have a hq scan for it. If anyone has any scans or photos of Zellers boxed games missing from our list, please let me know.

    Beagle Brothers

    Very interesting, thanks for sharing. I'd like to hear more about the Colorado connection, as that is where Smitty found one of the first known BB carts. (known to modern collectors that is).
  14. We made the first major upgrade to the Atari 7800 Rarity Guide since the launch of AtariAge: http://www.atariage.com/software_list.html...l?SystemID=7800 Comments?
  15. We will probably be posting the new rarity guide after this weekend. If anyone is still interested in participating in the survey then send me a PM. Thanks!
