    icon92.gif Tyrandom's cubby

    Hi everybody, here it is my closet.
    I moved my humble collection to this corner 'cause my old game room has been dedicated to my small baby.







    Saturn in tate on a Loewe (lovely), the other systems on Sony Trinitron, all the guys (except NES) in RGB with an active multiscart box.

    Imho, nice stuff.

    Now let's see if you can keep it in the closet.

    Our Megadrive collections are VERY similar. And I too only have a very small, yet refined collection. I'll take a look at Kid Chameleon, as I've never given it a fair look tbh.

    FYI, imo... you would probably like to add: Mega Turrican, Probotector, Shadow Dancer, Vectorman, Super Thunderblade and Hellfire or ZeroWing.

    Other secondary recommendations include, if I'm following your collecting logic correctly: Road Rash II, Desert Strike, Golden Axe II, Micro Machines, ESWAT, Rolling Thunder II, Robocop vs Terminator and Comix Zone...

    I keep myself in the closet, I'm confident with hikikomori syndrome

    I love and I had most of those games, also Alien Soldier, Atomic Runner, Mega Man Wily Wars... but I sold/traded them for Saturn o NG stuff in the past, now I regret a little. Golden Axe, Road Rash II and Comix Zone will return in the closet for sure.

    Kid Chameleon IMHO is a great underrated game, challenging and with a strange charm. It also aged very well for being quite an early game, smooth and fun to play.

    It's easily done. Especially when upping your funds for AES carts. There should be a joke: "how many Megadrive games does it take to buy a Blazing Star?". Probably don't want to know the 'punchline' to be honest!

    I wouldn't mind a copy of Alien Soldier one day actually. But yeah... pricey. I have limits of what I'm willing to spend on games per console. And, when it comes to the MD, my ceiling is around £50 - £60. Not enough for Alien Soldier I guess. My AES ceiling is approximately 10x that btw. Saturn is £150... etc.

    I bought Atomic Runner recently, but found a minor amount of lag in the controls, which pissed me off... as I actually like the way the game plays.

    I'll check out KC. See what I'm missing...

    I can't believe that you fit so much stuff into a closet and made it functional. Good job.

    Thanks for your appreciation. I risk my life in summertime, but at least there's no sunfading menace in this (chubby) cubby.
    The original idea was about a cab in the cabinet (?) or a Steel Battalion setup but in the end I opted for a pret-a-jouer solution.

    Nice collection! I'm like you, I have a bit of everything. Although I am trying to focus on a few of my favorite systems.
    I'm a big Sega fan and you've got a lot of great Mega Drive games there!
    I also love the boxed SNES and NES games. The condition of your boxes looks good! That's hard to do.

    Nice! You have Kinnikuman tucked into your collection! I have a few of them in my retro video game collection too.

    It seems that I can't edit the first post.
    I moved some games and I filled almost all the space of that poor small room.

    Is that sunlight seeping in? Think of all the sun fade and how the value of your games are dropping so rapidly!!!

    It is your own private japanese-style micro home, so full of video gaming atmosphere I'm nearly speechless. Never saw the Near House concept as fittingly translated into a player's room before... it evokes feelings of dystopian nostalgia with those warm, ochre-colored wooden shelves contrasting to the commonly encountered deep black wires, almost clinical, wreathing all over the place. Like a hidden space in Batou's safe house. The games? Yeah, they're here, too and great as well ;).

    Lol, no, they are just a couple of 36W neon lights behind the shelves
    In photo they seem far brighter than they really are.
