Had An Awesome Time Hangin’ With My Retro Collector Friends From Colexions.com

7 04 2014

My buddy and fellow Retro Gaming fanatic Corey Buckner has put together a great community of fellow minded collectors over at colexions.com. Well, not only has he put together a great site to show off your own collection and geek out over fellow collectors treasures, he also hosts a monthly “Show And Tell” on Google Hangouts. What it is is a group of us collectors having a great time, showing off our stuff and talking about retro gaming and what ever else might come to mind. This was the third monthly get together and boy did we get to see some amazing stuff. We represented five different countries and three different continents but the distances just made the conversation better. It’s really cool to be able to meet like this. We had Corey Buckner (of course) from just outside Chicago and indie game developer Gary Brafford in West Virginia and lifespiller79 from…um sorry man, Texas (I think), all three in the U.S. of A,  We had Gabo representing Argentina, Mark in the U.K, Paul in Australia and little ol’ me up here in Canada. Everyone pulled out all the stops and showed some real stunners from our collections. Checkout last Saturday’s get together below:

Video: 20 Games That Defined the [Original] XBOX

25 09 2012

So I have stumbled upon a whole bunch of “20 Video Games That Define” type videos all applemctom’s Youtube page and will be posting them. Sure, this type of list is always an opinion piece, and we know opinions vary but these are good list and good video footage of the games.

This one is the 20 defining games for the original XBOX. I know that the original XBOX didn’t get a lot of love when it was current, other than Halo… but I liked this system,. In fact, until the advent of the XBOX 360, it was my favourite system – playing it far more than any other system (and I always have the current run of consoles). I almost never turned my PS3 or my Gamecube on when these were the three current systems – Pretty much stuck to my XBOX. Some of these games are part of the reason!
