Recommended Posts

My birthday present to myself this year! Not exactly a video game, but it is gaming related. :D

My first Atari 5200 and it has an A/V mod plus the Atarimax Ultimate 5200 SD Cart. And now, the dark science of trying to not get ripped off on a used 5200 trackball.

Hit up a retro store today and picked up some extra carts I didn't have for the collection. Most standard stuff, just to say I have them. However happy to get a clean Adventure, Pete Rose Baseball and Motorodeo. Puts me at 160 carts. Sweet :)

5200 arrived today. I forgot how huge they were. The picture doesnt do justice to its presence in the room.

That is one sweet looking 5200. Congrats on your purchase! You have got to get yourself a trak-ball. Take your time and happy hunting. :)

Another quick trip to another retro gaming store on the way home garnered a few more 2600 carts. 3 double-enders in the last 2 pickups. Stoked to have a mint 'Marauder'. Good game imo.

Pretty happy about this one..Steeplechase from 1974. It's even working already, which saves me from a lot of future obscenities. :D

My local retro store around the corner had a few good things for me to add to my collection this weekend:

Nice, has that one been restored?

No, I don't buy restorations (the definition and quality of which tend to be all over the map) and prefer original unless something's just plain missing. I did add repro sideart to my Zaxxon, as it appears to have never had any for some reason.

 

This one's just a nice survivor.

I have greatly slowed my collecting roll so far in 2018. That said, I have a couple recent pickups for the Switch:

I've heard good things about Cave Story over the years, but never played it. It was on sale for $25 at Target last week, so I snagged it.

 

Super Mario Odyssey was a birthday gift to myself a couple weeks back. It was the other reason (other than Breath of the Wild) for me purchasing a Switch.

 

I haven't had time to play either one because adulting. :mad:

Did you find this on St. Louis craigslist? I could swear I remember seeing that one posted a long time ago.

It's that time again to take a look at yours and my gaming pickups. What goodies have we bough this past month? Let's take a look. Oh and this is the first gaming pick ups to be presented in 4K.

I'm having it delivered by a guy that picked it up somewhere, so I'm not completely sure where it came from.

Atari 5200 Trak-Ball, Brand New and Sealed, and not from Venezuela, so it has more than a 50% chance of arriving, but got it for a similar cost. Luckily, it was on eBay about 2 minutes when I spotted it. Actually cost me about $20 more than the used one I was about to buy, but I could not pass that up. Now:

A. The seller has a 100% rating but hope it wasn't one he dropped down the stairs.

B. Will feel guilty for opening it

had some great weather today so made my rounds to all the junk stores / thrift stores / antique malls

didn't find a lot but got several deals

 

got my lil guy a leap pad 3, for 4$ with games (nice thing is they can be hacked and install all kinds of .sfw flash games), now no more fighting lol (his big brother has one already )

 

his older brother (turning 3 this week ) got the mother load

a k'nex roller coaster store display from Walmart got it at an antique mall for only 10$

it needs new plexi glass

and the motor was bad (already fixed the motor )

boy was he happy lol think I got 200 hugs before his bedtime lol

https://youtu.be/wCw8-YfrK0k

the fun part is going to be finding a place in the game room for it , the thing is huge (the grey chairs behind it are full bar height )

 

not much luck for myself

found a radio shack amplified video selector (5 coax inputs , 3 coax outputs ) for only 3$

so now I can have all my coax only systems switched

everything els was a bust no classic games , and all the vintage train gear was junk or over priced

Just some shrapnel I picked up from local gamestore. Legendary Activision Barnstorming Sox and NES30 Retro Controller. USB and Bluetooth. An easy solution for emulators.

I may be the only person in the world who chose to buy an Xbox One over a PS4 or Switch specifically to play this game. I'm still saving up for the system, but I bought the game preemptively while I was at Target today. :D
