New Year Update: Retro Gaming Withdrawal Symptoms
Our new apartment is really great, but sadly I have had to put most of my retro gaming gear collection - the Intellivision, Super Famicom, PC Engine, Color TV Game 15, Sega Mark III and about half a dozen other vintage consoles - into storage due to lack of space. The only thing I was able to salvage was my AV Famicom, which now sits in a little piece from IKEA, and about 200 of my favorite Famicom carts. Yup, that means that even the bulk of my Famicom collection is in storage too!
Sadly this also means that my much beloved Famicom cart shelf fashioned out of dish drying racks that I was so proud of a couple years ago also is no more. We had to make some hard choices while packing up and this was placed into a box that was carted away by a truck headed to a recycling centre a couple days before we left. It did, I should say, prove its usefulness for those two years so I stick by my original post in which I recommended putting one of these together.
Happy New Year everyone. And a belated Merry Christmas.
