Ugh, time to purge

Recommended Posts

I know I'm blowing the dust off of my AtariAge account and all, but the pandemic has granted me the opportunity to get back in collecting, so I would be quite interested to see the 2600 list as well.

Age is making me think long and hard about it.  Not touching my primary collection yet, but the thought has crossed my mind. Especially after picking up a great retro pie emulator that I have used more than any of the countless physical copies on my shelves.  

That's one step ahead of me, even. Still attached to my original Apple II and PC hardware. But its threatening to overrun everything. Been in the emulation scene since the late 486 era, just before mame came out.

I never really thought I’d like like emulation being a old school guy, but I’m surprised at how much I’m enjoying having everything at my fingertips.

I take it you're a newcomer to emulation more or less?

More or less.  Always have been an original hardware stickler in the past.

Original hardware has its charms and flavors. And it's always good to have one or two platforms from yesteryear. Keeps one grounded and allows for perspective.

 

Many of the emulator rigs I was commissioned to build for others over the years tend to be small units. Something like an R-Pi, MiSTer, or Intel NUC. Used to be SFF PCs, but those are falling out of favor except for like power users.

 

The Intel NUCs have gained in popularity for this task of emulation because they are portable. More durable than a laptop. Solid construction. Convenient for plugging into any size display. And no worry about a battery. MiSTer is still niche, and R-Pi is still "hobbyist". But both continue to gain ground.

Any Atari 8bit stuff?

No sorry, nothing of note.   I might have a couple commons that will go but nothing exciting.

I'm interested in a loose copy of hero for 2600 or 5200.

I might have that but not sure yet.   I’ll keep you in mind at that point.

Since it seems mentioning things gets an early crack at them, I'll keep my list to four systems - Game Boy (loose carts), Lynx, 5200, and Intellivision (all CIB, but I'll look at partials as well - plenty of holes to fill).  Still eagerly awaiting the public listings though!

If that's the case I'd look at Gameboy too, also Neo Geo MVS if that were hiding in there, and/or PC Engine.  Doubtful there would be some vintage handhelds (game & watch, radio shack, etc LCD/tabletop) games are there?

No Gameboy, Neo Geo, Pc engine, or Lynx at all.  Not much in the way of handhelds.

Any sega stuff be it consoles or games? I'm in massive sell mode too but there's a few games I'd like in good condition almost for aesthetic purposes on top of the nostalgia.

Not a ton.  Some Sega Master and a few Genesis consoles.

If you stumble across any cib 5200 titles I may be interested, I have roughly 10 left for the set, nothing crazy thankfully, mostly activision and mr. dos castle

Apologies to all who were hoping to see some sale lists in the near future. I’m finishing up a Colecovision trade right now and I’ve gotten a bit sidetracked on other things.  I’m close to finishing my final Colecovision sale list and will be in touch with those people that expressed CV interest soon.   With the number of people expressing interest in stuff, for everything else, I don’t think I’m going to be able to get back to you individually.  I’ll post the items for all either here or a separate thread as I test and get lists together. Sorry again, this has become a bigger undertaking than I had anticipated
