I plan to add the following:

Any thoughts or suggestions to round this collection out? Thanks.

Terry

Hello, Welcome to our Forum. Nice System Collection. I would recommend adding a Nintendo Virtual Boy System. Which Laseractive games do you have? Mike : )

Thanks for the welcome and feedback guys.

The only game I have for the LaserActive is the originally included Sega CD sampler that came with the PAC-S10 unit (CD contains Streets of Rage, Revenge of Shinobi, Columns and Golden Axe). I am doing a little research on this obscure system to see what the best showcase title would be (slim pickings since not a great many were exclusivel released for this system).

I considered adding some handheld units to the collection, but to be honest, they do nothing for me at all.

Also, I just purchased a Big Event Golf arcade unit. I am not really into the arcade systems at all, but this was too hard to pass up and rekindled a number of fond memories. I picked up the unit for $50. The description says the track ball is a little rough and the display needs some adjustments. The link to the shop that repairs these type of games was DOA. Do you have any contact information for someone who can take a look at this unit? Also, I fely I really couldn't go wrong with $50 price tag (won it on an eBat auction). Your thoughts?

On a side note, a link to MapQuest or similiar service would be useful IMHO. I plan on stopping out and seeing your store in the next couple of weeks.

Thanks again guys and hope you are having a good new year.

Terry

Thatís a good idea about the mapquest directions for the stores. Charlie who is at the Lakewood store at times does Arcade Repair, yeah his site is currently down. More than likely you'll need a new trackball kit. I can try and have Charlie PM you on this site. There are actual Laserdisc Games you can play on the Pioneer Laseractive. Triad Stone is a lot like Dragon's Lair. They are much better than Sega CD Games. Kinda hard to find and usually a bit pricey. Mike : )

If you could have him PM me that would be great. Thanks again and I look forward to visiting your store(s) and getting some classic games.

Very nice collection. You need an Atari Stunt Cycle, and maybe to have them all, a Sears Tele-Games.

Thanks Digital for the feedback. I thought about the Sears Tele-Games (really the first pong from Atari) and I agree I should probably add that. I am not familiar with the Stunt Cycle system at all.

I recently added the Amstrad GX4000 (1989) and the Action Max from Worlds of Wonder (1987).

Happy gaming.

Here is Atari's Stunt Cycle Console. They are not that common, at least boxed.

You also need an Atari Video Pinball

I grew up when these games came out, and I don't remember some of what you have. You have a nice colection.

Added a couple more recently to the collection:

o 1999 Samsung DVD-N501 (Nuon tech with the Tempest 3000 game)
o 2004 XavixPort (with the Golf game)

I saw a APF Imagination Machine (basically complete) recently on eBay go for around $400 + shipping - WOW. The thing is, it was not confirmed to work at all (strange how the only thing missing at times is the power cord for some of the classic units).

Thanks Daredevil for the info for the Atari units. I have my eye on a couple, but waiting for a great one to come along.

Has anyone actually seen (in real) one of those RDI Halcyon systems (1984-85), let alone one for sale? This has to be the toughest system to find.

Happy gaming all.

Terry
