Welcome to my blog, Iím a hardcore Lurker here on Destructoid. Iíve been reading since about 6 months before I actually joined, and have only started commenting and posting in the forums pretty recently. Iím a child of the 80s, cut my gaming teeth on a Colecovision with Atari attachment (woo Combat!) and an XT PC where for some games you would have to delete data off of the two 10 megabyte hds to clear enough space to play certain games that used the hd to add to the 640k ram (who would need more?) But, I would go on to only have that and my original brick game boy to hold me over until I turned 18 (in 2002) when I finally picked up my first console since the coleco, an original playstation.
Nowadays, Iíve owned pretty much everything under the sun due to an unknowledgeable comic book store, garage sales, craigslist, and poor ebay descriptions (Thank you 20 dollar shipped box with working as best as it possibly could power glove and sega master system 3d glasses) After a purge during home/life limbo post-college graduation, Iíve now ended up with a collection of consoles that stay hooked up and used. Traded away are the 3do, turbografx-cd, but kept are all the basics, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, Genesis, Saturn, Dreamcast, Ps2, a not modded xbox with not every arcade game now that the arcades have closed down, a 360, and a wii. Yes those are the basics. The not basics are my Virtual Boy with Lamp-o-Tron mod, and the prize console, my Vectrex with Sean Kelly Multi-Cart.
