Still got anything retro?

Postby Chain » Tue Nov 16, 2004 4:07 pm

So who still has something of the old dog letf laying around in a dusty loft or box somewhere?

I have a bit collection that I have to sort out (maybe over Xmas) but seem to never have enough.. I think I should be banned from eBay ;)

What you lot got that you'd never get rid of?

Well, I have a cartridge for Gameboy that is called Donkey Kong 94 that appears to be relatively hard to come by now and was partially the brainchild of Shiguru Myamoto ... soooooooooo, that is the one thing I have clung to.

Plus a US N64 with most of the top games (NTSC speedy originals). Although I would possibly consider selling this.

Aside from that, nothing ancient in my cupboards to report.

Pretty sure ive still got a 64k memory expansion for an amstrad cpc 464 knocking about somewhere. Sure itll come in useful one day :) Dunno where all my games have gone tho, and the amstrad itself stopped working some time ago....

Other than that, a sega saturn i 'acquired' when rage software went bust. Also got a really cool space invaders game, this one:-

Mustve had it when it first came out! Ive completed it now. Still a great game tho :)

I have a few bits and bobs here are some (sure I missed much) -

Spectrum 48k in metal case (proper keyboard of sorts).
Spectrum 128K (the one with the tape drive).
Spectrum +3 (the one with the Floppy drive).
Lots of games and extras (hardware etc).

Commodore 64 (lots ;) )
Lots of C64 extras (disc drives, carts etc)
SX64 (awaiting from the US only been waiting 6 weeks Slobber)

Amigas (almost all types only missing the A600 and A3000 models)

Console wise -
Master system(s) + Games
Mega drive(s) + Games
GameGear + Games
Saturn + Steering wheel and some of the better titles.
Dreamcast (is this retro now?)
SNES(es) + Games
N64 (Plus CD64 - The cdrom drive that goes in the bottom ;) ) + Games

What I'm looking for these days -
NES - Bloody never found one!! DOH!
CDTV (had one and sold it Opps)
CD32 + SX1 (had one of these too and sold it!)

And lots of other bits and bobs.. ;)

Strange doesn't seem that much when you put it down :O

Just bagged the following -

Atari 800 computer
Atari 2600 console
Amiga 600
C128 + Disk Drive
NES

:)

Sad aren't I?

On the plus side I have managed to get insurance no problem, as retro items ARE classed as a collectable! :)

Nice.

Morning. Anyone left?

I've not much left after a visit to a certain place in Eastbourne... ;) I was gutted when I realised I've no longer got my copy of the Sigue Sigue Sputnik game. Just picked up a BBC B. For no particular reason.

Talking of that, if anyone's familiar with the uk nova site there are a couple of rather good t*rr*nt files up - the 'Commercial Breaks' programme that showed Imagine Software fall to bits in front of the cameras, an edition of Micro Live (really good for a laugh, that one) and three editions of Making The Most Of The Micro. Some more to follow, hopefully.

As you were.
