    Retro & modern gaming, pinball. I primarily collect Intellivision, Odyssey2, and NES, and play Xbox.

  1. A lot more than before (thank you!), but no, I still have a few that are missing manuals and some random loose carts. And now that I've only got one kinda cheap one and a bunch of pricey stuff left, I'm leaning toward loose carts for the rare sports games since I'll never play them anyway. Plus I'm just about out of space on the shelves, but my loose cart storage thingy still has plenty of room.
  2. My parents had an Intellivision II when I was a kid, and when it broke we got a Super Pro. I took it with me when I moved out, and I think the combination of being friends with Keith, lurking these boards so long before I started posting, the podcast, and meeting some of you in person made me want to collect more than what I had from my childhood. I don't really have space for more than just games but I'm currently sitting pretty at 108/125, thanks in large part to some of you.
  3. It had so much potential, but the controls were... not great. It's been a couple years though, maybe they've fixed it. You really need a Bluetooth controller to play, not just the headset.
  4. I'm out this year. Womp womp. I'll shoot for 2020 though, last year was good times.
  5. It's possible that the bag is original. Not sure how the consoles were wrapped, but some of the peripherals came with big bubble wrap taped around them. They don't have styrofoam protectors though. And I have a "sealed" NES that came with an open bag, so maybe? The cords should probably be taped or tucked into something though. I don't remember unboxing anything at the office with twist ties on it.
  6. Always bump this thread. It's one of my favorites.
  7. That's the one, thanks! I pity the kid whose parents got that over an actual fun system.
  8. What WAS the thing that Mattel put out with the educational games? With the really bland packaging and tons of inserts for kids to lose? I remember a geography game with a brown box and a girl's face on it, same size as an Intellivision game.
  9. Monday/month end/coming back after a day off, take your pick. Don't these guys know I'd rather be playing Fathom?
  10. You've got two KC's. Now a WORKING unit, that's another story.
  11. Mostly staples and things I like, although if something's cheap and boxed I won't turn my nose up at it. I probably only have about 60 boxed games, so enough to call myself a collector but not enough to be taken seriously.
  12. I wish this would hurry up and happen. I need Uninvited to go back to being $30 complete. It's the dumbest game and I put it off, and now it's my still-dumb white whale.
  13. Dino listed a copy of "his" Deep Zone, and I reported it. I dunno, I don't blame vroby on this one. EDIT: It was promptly relisted. How lovely.
  14. Thanks jaybird3rd. Sorry I lost my you-know-what.
  15. Okay. This very subject is the reason I stopped lurking the Coleco boards. Somebody said something WAY out of line, along the lines of "I hope the BSRs die off so an unsuspecting wife releases it" and I got so pissed I never went back. So pardon this rant, but the choice of board this subject ended up being posted on again has set me off fresh. 1. There are at least three BSRs who hang out and post in this forum, and one more with an account who lurks with some regularity. A lot of these folks are still friends, and Keith was a big part of their group. This particular thread isn't the place for this. 2. Re: the Coleco board comment - some of the BSRs have HUSBANDS. Don't for one second think it's gonna be a woman who f*cks it up. 3. There are VERY few people with access to the game, and they are quite trustworthy. It will not leak. (No, I'm not one of them, though if I were I'd keep it safe out of sheer spite at this point.) 4. It's not "screaming copyright" if a very small company can't afford licensing fees from a very big company. It was a legit issue. It was also why Tron never got rereleased, and the D&D games had to have name changes. 5. Didn't Keith once say on the podcast that the only major difference was the Coleco version had a bug when Skeletor runs across the screen between levels? Y'all Coleco folks really gettin' your skivvies in a twist over a buggy game that already exists? ANYway. *toasts Keith* Later dudes.
