Re: Console Future Values

That Jag CD I was planning out outbidding everyone is now up to $850. So much for that idea. IMO the Jag CD is much more of a collectible than a gaming console expansion. I would compare it to the Neo Geo. People spend many thousands to collect games that are easily emulated by the likes of a low e...

Re: Console Future Values

I've always wanted a Jag CD and am going to pull the trigger. That's for personal enjoyment purposes. I was wondering if there are any consoles that might experience a huge jump in value in the next 10 years. I'm thinking the Jag CD will be one. IMO, Jag CD won't see a huge increase in value since ...

Wii-U Amibos, Skylanders, Lego games...A question

Howdy! When I originally decided to go 'all in' on collecting for Wii-U, I briefly considered going for a complete North American physical game collection but decided not to do so. I consider myself and want to continue considering myself as a 'good value' gamer. I usually lag behind one game consol...

Re: New handheld with physical carts - Evercade

Out of curiosity, did the 2600 or 7800 have anything more than a token presence in your part of the world? The 2600 was huge in the USA like Pickup Trucks, Guns, and Apple pie but the 7800 was released by Atari to get whatever scraps and crumbs were left over from the NES. I doubt it ever had more t...

Re: Is anyone else ever nostalgic for bad graphics?

This is an interesting question, here are a few random things that to come to mind: I can imagine someone back in the day 'upgrading' from an Atari 2600, Fairchild, or even a dedicated pong machine to an intellivision or even a ColecoVision and being 'nostalgic' about their old console having worse ...

Re: Why the WII-U is now my 'go to' console.

I need to pick-up another Wii U console now that prices seem to have bottomed-out. Very under-rated...this (or last) generation's Saturn. Great games cheap(ish), get 'em while you can... I actually did get a second Wii-U as an extra since I decided it was the console that would get most of my atten...

Re: Why the WII-U is now my 'go to' console.

Yeah, I'm with you - I bought a Wii U about a year ago and I'm glad I did. I was itching for a Switch, just to play Breath of the Wild. Instead, I got a Wii U with Breath of the Wild, plus like 15-20 other games. I paid less for that than I would have paid for the Switch set-up. And it scratched my...

Re: Why the WII-U is now my 'go to' console.

Or you could sell all of your systems and games and have more than enough for your Switch. Who needs all 3 anyway? Lol—just had to throw that out there. I’m hoping Santa brings me a Switch. :) Honestly, I like the Idea that while I could afford to get a switch and whatever games I want to go along ...

Why the WII-U is now my 'go to' console.

Recently, I was laid off from my job as a 'Testing / Data Analyst' with the local school board due to the position being eliminated and was transferred to a new job with the same hourly salary that (LOL) may or not involve a school bus. Because of this , I have a few hours in the afternoon to kill b...

Re: About the Astrocade...

If I could go back in time I'd love to browse around those old departments stores like Montgomery Ward and peruse the latest in "high tech" merchandise. I'd probably go on a shopping spree. For the Atari 2600 I 'specialize' (aka spend the most money) on Sears Tele-Games branded games and ...
