I like the box you're using to store your VB carts

Re-arranged my office shelf.  Books on the top shelf are being moved out...games moving in.

The 800 may very well be my favorite or at least my current obsession (I've got the 130XE) but I originally had an 800 as a kid. So many great games to play on this thing!

Update to the sanctum.

You've all heard me complain about the lack of space.  Well, I re-arranged my gaming credenza and now have space to leave several systems out and ready for playing.  Wii is up top.  PS2 and a Retron 3 (NES, SNES, and Genesis) on the middle shelf, and 2600 jr on the bottom.  I just got the Retron, figuring it would be a nice space saver.  It actually works pretty well!  Bonus points for allowing the use of original controllers.

Oh i have never played a retron. I had no clue you could use original controllers. I have been putting off getting one for some time. Are there any cons to the system?

I'm sure there are.  I read that there may be sound issues on Genesis games, and maybe some games that do not work.  However, I've noticed nothing like that so far.  The only real con I've noticed so far is that the included wireless controllers are just ok.  But no biggie, I intend to use real controllers.

Spent some time playing the 3 CCW games (with Kid's Controller), and let me tell you...I'm impressed.  The games are very simple and meant for young kids.  But the graphics and sound are really great!  Cookie Monster munching cookies, for example, looks far better than I ever would have expected out of the 2600:

Would love to see an NSG review of these games!

I finally took the time to really clean up and repair the Stunt Cycle I got on Ebay.  It cleaned up really nicely and works perfectly.  The paddles all work jitter free, and look like pieces of art to me.  I love this thing.  I made a PDF copy of the manual -- if you need it, PM me.  Take a close look at the price sticker...someone got a great deal from the Sears Surplus Store!

I love the Sears Pong boxes, something about them that really oozes the 70s. I have a fleeting memory of checking out the Atari/Telegames setup when I was in Sears once.

I have always liked the original 800.  It is a sexy beast for sure.

Playing some TI 99/4A tonight.  It has some great games, and I love the speech module.

That's a very clean, organized Sears collection Rick. I love what I'm seeing.
