Hullo!
« on: September 26, 2013, 15:06:13 PM »
Potted bio: I'm a musician, artist, former software engineer, and general layabout in my early 40s, originally from Southampton but now inexplicably live near Doncaster.

I've dabbled in collecting for years, acquiring and disposing of the odd console here or there but never really amassing anything of note, but I've finally got the space and time to take it a little more seriously. Small beans at the moment -- a dozen consoles and 100-odd games -- but you've got to start somewhere! Mostly I'm collecting stuff I want to actually play (the whole "buying mint-in-box games that you'll never play" thing baffles me) which means some consoles are getting more love than others, but hopefully I'll eventually have a pretty good cross section of games across all platforms. I probably won't say much around here, but occasionally I'll pipe up and be argumentative about something or other...

Well it goes without saying that it's the greatest console EVAR!

It's unrelated, and a long and convoluted story that will mean nothing to anyone. :) I'd forgotten all about Electronics Boutique to be honest; The Wikipedias tell me they're now merged with GameStop, but I've not seen one since I lived in Florida in the late 80s/early 90s...

Welcome, fella!!! It's always nice to get new people into these parts, if only to have fresh meat to pick on. :lol:

Just kidding! I hope you enjoy the forum and the community, and I hope that the Intellivision is one of those consoles you dedicate more time to--there, I've said it. ;)

    Cheers!

Ah-hoy!

Welcome to the forum that impresses. I did run a thread about nic's but you are not obliged to divulge if you prefer short and sweet posts. Greyfox is quite right about the elite here, himself included. Great bunch of enthusiasts with a wealth of knowledge. Hope to see you around, have fun!
For the record, Alien verses Predator on the Atari Jaguar holds a Guinness World Record!

To remove any awkwardness, I have mesothelioma. I don’t seek sympathy, just acceptance. Thanks
