All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: RPGs, comic books, Firefly, RPGs, Community, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, RPGs, Avengers, Doctor Who, And RPGs. And comic books. And RPGS. Not a "fandom" blog, unless D&D alignments count as a fandom.
It is a sad, sad day. I was trying to organize my old school consoles for some friends that were coming over to play today, and I knocked my PS1 onto the floor. The spindle is definitely broken and I hear some more rattling inside. :(
RIP Original Playstation (1998-2014)
You were a good friend.
Atari 2600. It’s a 4-switch model, so not the first gen (heavy 6) or the second (lightweight 6). I can’t see the front very well, but there should be some veneer showing if it was the 1980-1982 model. I’m guess it’s the Vader 4-switch, right before production of the 2600 Jr, putting it’s production sometime between ‘82-‘84.
Not to get all “Get off my lawn,” but I get sad that Atari always gets left out of the “Old School Gaming” parties. It was the original home video game console, but everybody acts like 8-bit graphics were the beginning.
