Hello gang
« on: April 10, 2012, 19:24:09 PM »
Hi everyone,

My name is Martin and I am from the deep swamplands of Essex in the UK, Canvey Island to be precise (really not as glamarous as it sounds). I am an old school gamer with my first console being the Acetronic MPU1000 in 1977 and microcomputer the 16k ZXspectrum. I am still an avid gamer with retro and modern consoles/computers and spend plenty of time scouring car boot sales and charity shops to find those golden bargains.

I have a large collection of consoles and computers and games which I am constantly trying to improve and increase.

Here is the list (in no particuar order),

Acetronic MPU1000
Intellivision
Colecovision
Sega Master System
Megadrive
Mega CD
NES
SNES
N64
Atari 2600
Atari 7200
Dreamcast
Gamecube
PS1
PS2
XBOX
Philips Videopac
Atari ST
Commodore Amiga
Commodore 64
Commodore +4
Vic20
ZX Spectrum 48k/128k/+1/+2
Acorn Electron
Sega Game Gear
Nintendo Gameboy/Gameboy Advance
Wii
Xbox360

Ok, the Xbox360 and Wii aren't retro but todays new consoles are tomorrows retro collectibles. Anyway, Nice to meet you all and hope to speak to all some point soon.
