This is an official SEGA toaster which I won back in 2002. It was never sold in stores, rather it was a contest prize.
Very old pics of my 3 screen arcade setup
PC gaming gives you the best of both worlds, last gen games in HD, current gen games performing better than their console counterparts
A long time coming, finally fully working in full stereo with analog controls, Space Harrier is in the house
Yet another Kickstarter comes through with The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers by John Szcepaniak. This is the Platinum DVD set which comes with the sometimes very painful to hear documentary and the special edition version of the book.
New game get!
JURASSIC PARK III (AC)
Little seen Konami developed optical gun shooter which has a suicide battery and 2 major variants: one is the version seen here which is like the EU version in that it uses buttons to perform dodges while the Japanese original uses a motion sensor system seen in games like The Policeman (aka Police 911)…unfortunately, I’ve never come across that version in the wild and I’m sure that most are dead by now due to the battery. Even the board I just acquired had a new battery put in but was dead by the time it got to me, luckily I know how to revive these games and replace the battery with a solid state part.
ZELDA MUSO TREASURE BOX (Wii U)
This Amazon.co.jp/Game City (Koei’s online shop) limited edition just arrived and it’s absolutely appalling at how cheap it is. Other TREASURE BOX editions come in sturdier and color packaging, this is a flimsy black & white box! This can easily be construed into a statement on how much investment they’re willing to put into the platform.
