  • My matte seal Hoganโ€™s Alley - funny story with this one - I got this about 18 months ago from a Canadian eBay seller (BC) and it was the only one remotely as nice as this (cost was around $60 US) - all of the USA sellers had terrible condition later print revisions at a slightly cheaper price that werenโ€™t moving. I took that leap of Canadian faith, Iโ€™m not scared of buying from Canadian sellers, but I sometimes get the feeling that some other USA buyers are. Oh well! Their loss, not mine!!! #nes #nintendo #retrogaming #retrocollective #retrocollectivena #ninstagram #retrogamescollector

  • Howdy everyone! How's it going? Hope your 2059 is going swell. I thought I'd pop onto VeroGram here and give everyone an update. I could be doing better. Still in my car. If anyone has a spare room, let me know. The ol' prostate has some dings, but the blood thinners seem to be helping. Still single and ready to mingle. About a year ago I got to touch a boob finally though, so it could be worse. Anyone play anything fun lately? Remember when I wanted a Switch and Mario Maker 2? Good times. I often wonder what that would have been like. That new Microsoft PlayStation 3 is looking mighty fine though. Anyone hear any more about that rumored Nintendo 64 Mini? That could be fun. On the movie front, there's been some good and some bad. That "Kickerz" movie was incredible. I could have sworn I'd read the story or idea somewhere before...the ol' memory isn't what it was. I also really loved that Obi-Wan Kenobi trilogy with Ewan McGregor. Fantastic stuff. Absolutely loathed that live-action remake of Toy Story though. Probably not the best movie to include social/political issues in. I thought you didn't really need a transgender Woody, but that's just me I suppose. Whelp, the ol' eyelids are getting heavy. Suppose I better sign off. Before I go, I just want to acknowledge the annual Anniversary of the Area 51 Slaughter. We lost a lot of great friends in the carnage. RIP @rainydaygamer @superamazeballz @zengamer and @texasenpai. I miss you. But your sacrifices have never gone unnoticed. Because of you, we learned of our alien friends. Speaking of them, everyone go follow @BleeorkTheGamer and, newly out of the alien closet, @joey.jo.jo.junior.shabadoo (we honestly should have seen it). Alright, I'm going to go watch President Schwarzenegger's Inauguration. Night night.

  • Q*bert was probably the world's first 3D strategy platform game.  We used to play this on my dad's work computer on a 5 1/2" floppy disc back in the late '80s.  It's a good game, but I never figured out why Q*bert is always swearing. ๐Ÿค”

  • Here is an unplanned PlayStation 2 post for #20gamesorless! I had hoped on keeping the systems in release order, but sometimes your forgetfulness forces a change in plans. Good thing I was shooting ahead a few days and was ready to go! This one was super tough to narrow down. Lots of great games here. 
The PS2 is my second favorite system behind NES.ย  I've always had a large library of games for it, camped out for launch, and worked at a store for nearly the entire life of the system.

Almost every game represented above is a favorite title, butย I'll cover the smallerย titles:

Samurai Western and Skygunner are both games I owned at one point, but traded off well before they shot up in price - as Atlus titles are wont to do. I actually played Skygunner a bit back when I first had it, and it was a very fun game. While both titles were fairly easy for me to obtain, they're included mainly for the sake of rarity. I don't want to let these two go again at any point.

Sky Odyssey is a game that is sorely underrated, and can be found on the cheap these days. Essentially an amped-up version of Pilotwings' Light Plane segments, this game shouldn't be missed by anyone that likes flying.

The glaring title on this list is The Bouncer.ย  It was hyped highly and underperformed quite a bit. It definitely ushered in the "movie as a game" idea, focusing more on cutscenes than gameplay. To me though, it is the game that says "PS2" to me. It may not be that great of a game, but the flashy graphics were a huge jump from the original PlayStation and it was really the first taste of a generation of gaming that was well beyond what had come before it. 
Finally, Dreamcast tomorrow!

  • ๐Ÿ Acquired this beautiful Road Rash long box yesterday while out hunting .This is easily in my top ten favorite games of all time. It is so much fun to race sport bikes down a narrow road avoiding cops, beating up other racers with a chain and purchasing a better motor bike with your winnings. If you havenโ€™t played this one you should get this for the ps1 or a Sega Genesis version. ๐Ÿ #roadrash
