Death of a Retro-Gaming Store

System Saturdays – The Brief and Odd Life of the Sega 32x

The Sega 32x is one of the most unusual consoles to have ever been on the market. First of all the system wasn’t sole supportive like any other consoles, and required the Sega Genesis (Maga-Drive) to operate. As strange as… Continue Reading →

System Saturday’s: Sega’s Game Gear not Really Game Gear

My big introduction to Sega was when I picked up my Genesis in 2013 and found myself blown away by the system itself as well as the Sonic games I got with it. A year later Sega would impress me… Continue Reading →

System Saturdays – Getting to Know the Atari Lynx

One of my New Years resolutions for this year was to get myself an Atari Lynx, and round about February I did, thanks to Best Electronics. I’d pretty much been shopping for a Lynx since October of 2015 after I… Continue Reading →

System Saturdays – Defending the Atari Jaguar

I’ll be the first to openly admit that I’ve been critical of the Atari Jaguar in some of my past posts. Although I never bashed the system or its games, I did have to question Atari’s 64-bit claims in a 16/32-bit… Continue Reading →

System Saturdays – 3D-Oh-No

In the world of consumer electronics the years of 1991-1996 where a time of tremendous innovation and change, and the impact of those five years can still be felt today. Intel introduced its first Pentium microprocessors, Microsoft introduced Windows 95′,… Continue Reading →

System Saturdays – Saturday Saturn-Day

I’ve had my Sega Saturn now since just before I attended Midwest Gaming Classics in April. With my usual system backlogs though it took me about a month to finally plug it in and try it out. Once I did… Continue Reading →

8-bit Fridays – The Diaries: March 25, 2016

The continuing saga of gaming versus time, while being a responsible adult.  I’ve had some pretty odd times as far as gaming goes since my last 8-bit Friday’s posting. By that I mean opportunities have presented themselves that have allowed me… Continue Reading →

In it I mentioned the Coleco Chameleon, which at… Continue Reading →

The Coleco Gemini and I

It’s weird to hear the name Coleco being thrown around again as a hot topic, and even being dragged through the mud. Right now the big topic is the Coleco Chameleon, with its Phoenix like resurrection from the flames of… Continue Reading →

A Gamers New Years Resolutions 2016 Edition

Two years ago I published my New Years resolutions for the upcoming year of 2014. By New Years Eve 2014 I found that I was able to accomplish roughly half of what I set out to do, which you have to… Continue Reading →

Saying Goodbye to my Old Game Room

I Emulate You Man, I Really Do: Part 2 – Together Yet Separate

Ok, I know its pretty much been forever since I last visited this series and its a little odd coming back to it after two years. At the same time though I’ve learned a lot in the last two years… Continue Reading →

Gen X.5: Part 4- The Cats Ninth Life in Gen 4.5
