I have been a bad blogger and completely ignored this blog for too freakin’ long. I’ll try to be better, but no promises…

In the meantime, though, here are some game play videos that I have recorded over the last few weeks.

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:





A Fantastic Intellivision Haul…And More!

5 01 2014

I decided to peruse a local online buy and sell site to see if there was any retro treasure to be found… There was! I bagged a boxed, great condition Intellivision, a crap load of great games, the Intellivoice add-on. But that, my fine feathered Internet friends was not all. No indeed, it is not. Included with the Intellivision was the extremely rare Educational Computer System (ECS) add-on, with the also ridiculously rare Music Synthesizer keyboard add-on. Pretty crazy, eh? Well, wait – there’s even more: the guy also threw in an Atari XE computer/console, matching joystick AND light gun,some Atari paddle controllers, a Kraft joystick, and the really cool button controller for Track and Field.

I got this entire haul for a total of $85 Canadian. The ECS and the XE didn’t come with power supplies, but I tested the XE with an existing power supply from the XE I already have and it works great, as does the ECS as I was able to test it using a Nintendo Entertainment System power supply.

Freakin’ awesome!

New Additions to my Collection

8 05 2013

Hey folks… Long time no see.

I just thought I would let you know about some more recent additions to my collection.

I’ve picked up an Intellivision II in the box but without a power supply (if you can help me out with a power supply I’d be much appreciative), at a Flea Market. Also, I was given, free of charge, a fantastic Nintendo Entertainment System, in a collectible Official Carrying bag and a CRAP load of games. AND… I picked up a Sega Genesis with a Sega CD unit in a cool carrying case. Pictures are below!

Comparisons of Many Versions of Donkey Kong

26 08 2012

Alright… I know way too long between posts. Can’t fix it as I don’t have a time machine, but I can say sorry. Sorry.

Anyway, here’s a 14+ minute video comparing a crap load of Donkey Kong (classic) versions on different, old systems.

Enjoy!





Pixels–A Video by Patrick Jean

23 01 2011

Hey, sorry it’s been so long since my last post but sometimes I’m a jerk that way.

Any way, I though I would share this fantastic video that I stumbled upon called Pixels. If you watch it, I think you’ll understand why it’s posted to this site.

Hope you enjoy!

Hilarious Video: Pixels

9 04 2010

So, the Evil Aliens and various Nemeses from our collective 80’s Arcade Video Game past have returned with a vengeance in this amazing video clip I (or someone else who then sent it to me), found on Youtube last night. The creators of the video did a great job mixing in the pixelated attackers with the razor sharp images of real life.

Hope you enjoy it!
