  1. Since I've now got an extra $3k sitting in my bank account, since most necessities have been taken care of, I'm actually starting to look into maybe snagging a few rarer hardware pieces for my *New* collection.

    I'm looking at either a Famicom Disk System or a Twin Famicom to start. 

    Any suggestions from you guys?

      If you can find it I'd go with a Twin Famicom but make sure it is a dark grey one with controllers having a light grey and blue accents.  Those controllers have turbo switches on them.  And you get the best of both worlds on those.  Sharp Twins are the only company Nintendo approved to make aftermarket Famicoms that I'm aware of.

      This one!

      Have you also thought about adding one of those new Sega Genesis classic consoles to your *NEW* collection?  If you have it I would.  I also hear now is the time to start collecting for the Wii U so you might jot that one down.

  2. Well guys, I have some good news.

    I was able to find a replacement for my Intellivision online for $40. It includes the original box, manual, and three games.

  3. I'd have to go with Haunted House for the 2600. They managed to get a lot of atmosphere out of 8 bits of data.
  4. Another update. Insurance got with Dad today. We're getting $70k for everything. Well, everything but my collection. Alas, it wasn't factored into the payout, so I'm on my own with rebuilding. However, the fine folks over at RFGeneration have announced that they're starting a drive to chip in and help out, and I feel so grateful.
  5. The shoutout means a lot, man. I do have some good news to share. We already have our new house lined up. Should only be a little while till we'll have our new place.
  6. Well, here's a list of my consoles. I won't ask for much, though. This is just what I owned. Atari 2600 (Light Sixer) Atari 2600 (4 Switch) Atari 2600 Jr. Bandai WonderSwan Color Mattel Children's Discovery System Mattel Intellivision Microsoft XBox Microsoft XBox 360 Nintendo Entertainment System Nintendo 64 Nintendo Wii Nintendo Wii U Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP Nintendo New 3DS XL Nintendo Switch Sega Genesis Sega Dreamcast Sony Playstation Sony PSOne Sony Playstation 2 Sony Playstation 2 Slim Sony PSP
  7. Well, the insurance guy came back, but he didn't look at my list or anything. They just decided to lump all the contents together and pay out for everything, so I really don't know what that means with regards to rebuilding my collection.
  8. Luckily enough, I do already have a RFGeneration list, so I do know exactly what I had, and what boxes and manuals I had. I have since decided I will continue to collect. My first step will be heading to Gamestop to find out if their console insurance covers loss by fire. Hopefully I'll either be replacing my Wii U this weekend, or, at the very least, get money back for its loss. I'll put up a short list of my lost consoles here. I'm sorry to say, @RickR, that I found the 2600 Jr. you gifted me today, and it was, of course, destroyed.
  9. This is a pretty crappy week.

  10. I'm afraid, guys, that this'll probably be the end of my video game collecting. I can get new games and consoles, sure, but not a single one will recapture the stories and memories I had with the originals. They just can't. It was fun while it lasted.
  11. The aftermath. Two views of my bedroom. You can see the charred remains of my 2600 collection... All destroyed, as I feared. My coin collection survived, though, somehow.
  12. A lot of what I lost were gifts from you guys. That hurts the most.

  14. A GoFund Me will be set up tomorrow, I'll share the link then.
