Post by: mainvein on January 05, 2014, 10:00:21 AM
Just signed up and wanted to say hi to everyone.  Im Steve from Leeds, i have a pretty big collection of video games and consoles (approx 2000 games and 80 consoles/handhelds).  Im a forum moderator on retrocollect and I'm on most retro gaming forums too.  Every month or so i like to organise some beers too for forumites so if your in leeds/west yorks then pop along, be good to meet you :-)

Wow mate, that some collection you have there, I bet the other half gives you rolling eyes every time you bring in a new edition to the collection? Lol..but welcome to RVG, we have some great topics, some heated, but 99% of the time we have great and educational debates about all this stuff, so enjoy your stay and make sure to interactive with the topics

Have a good one :)

thought it was about time i joined up to be honest mate as i know a few people on here anyway :-) 

my missus has just accepted the fact that our house will be a dumping ground for gaming stuff, but luckily she finds most of it cool :-)
And our loft has been converted so its all out the way (apart from the 6/7 consoles set up in the living room and mame cab in the dining room)
