Wow, apparently I own a Vectrex

by onemanfilmcrew Thu Aug 26, 2010 9:32 pm

It's amazing the things you pick up over the years and totally forget about. Since I"m moving next week I'm going through all the stuff I have in storage to figure out what I need to sell and what I need to keep. I open up one box to find a working Vectrex system. Just hooked it up and man that's some great vintage gaming. Nothing like being able to hear the radiation coming off of it.

Now if I can just find that box with the stacks of 20's and the case of sealed Stadium Events carts I'll be set :D

Congrats, a great Game machine! So what's all in the inventory?

when I was like 10, I researched the address of the company that made the Vectrex, and I sent them my allowance with a note that asked if it was enough for a Vectrex.

I'm still waiting on a response.

i ended up finding 5 games, nothing too rare but I did have Berzerk and Spike (the first game with speech). I also found a box with overlays. One of the overlays for Polar Rescue is probably worth more than any of the games :D

I'm getting rid of pretty much everything that isn't complete or incredibly rare though. It's amazing just how much crap you find out you have whenever you pick up and move.

Dude. You had a Vectrex and didn't know it?

You need to organize!

And apparently I'm the Moses of Sega. I found 2 Master Systems, 2 Genesis, 2 Sega CD's, and their unholy offspring the JVC X'eye. I think I see a box of Dreamcast systems as well.

Yep, that's why I'm scaling down everything I own. The next time I move I only want enough stuff so that I can move in a car. Or at the very least an Escalade :D

I have a Vectrex emulator on my MacBook Pro and its fun but something is missing. I think it's both the lack of overlays or that picture tube thing hum. Oh and that blue glow.

Forgot to mention the 3 boxed Atari's and a few crates of games.
