Gaming News
Updated: 10.13.2018
Well after another 3 years of inactivity I thought it best to update this page and let you know what's going on. For the first time in 30 years I skipped over a Nintendo console, passing up the Wii U and headed straight for the Switch. It takes a lot to get me to buy a new console these days but the newest releases of Mario, Zelda, Sonic and Mega Man were too tantalizing to ignore. And to further quench the nostalgia thirst, I also picked up the NES and Super NES Classic Edition with the built-in games, although it's a challenge to find the time to play those with life happening.

So no I haven't completely given up gaming, nor am I fully back into it. It's great for time away from responsibilities, but today's games can be so engrossing that it takes dozens of hours even for the "simple" titles. I won't tell you how many hours were dropped on Zelda: BotW, but at least I'm still a 100% completist once I get started.

As far as serious collecting, I really don't do that anymore. Most of the games purchased in the last 2 years have either been downloaded or opened. I've even toyed with the idea of (gasp!) selling some of the sealed/unopened games from the last 20 years. Pretty sure I'm never going to open them at this point, and it seems silly that they just sit around in boxes doing nothing. I'll probably start with sealed duplicates, and then if I can get over the sentiment and materialism I'll forge ahead with the rest. The Mega Man stuff I'll probably hold on to for a while longer, or I just may never sell them. Never know if that seller's regret could be lurking!

I never did buy any Wii U games, and at this point it doesn't matter anymore. I'll keep up with Switch titles as they come out (since my preferences are few and far between).

If I find a steal on a used Wii U and/or any of the games listed here, maybe I'll jump in, but I have other priorites to worry about.

Console Icons
Updated: 12.06.2015
Download Game Icons
NOTE: I know nobody uses the SIT format anymore for Mac. When this page is redone I'll have one ZIP file that will hold both Mac and PC versions of these icons.

For those who like computer icons, I have assembled a collection of Copland-style pixels that you can use on your PC or Mac. My creative insipiration came from the old-school icons found on IconFactory.com. All the icons in this download I made myself, mostly out of impatience waiting for someone else to do them.

The icons posted here are for your downloading enjoyment. You'll find consoles such as the Virtual Boy, Sega CDX, Sega Saturn, Nintendo Gamecube, Game Boy Advance (1st revision, 2 colors), Game Boy Advance SP (Platinum), Nintendo DS, XBox, and the Sony PSP. To get the other icons, you'll have to find them, either at IconFactory.com or elsewhere. (I'm not sure where to go to ask permission for distributing the other ones.)

Emulation
Updated: 01.01.2006
My opinion on the legality of video game emulation is about the same as any purist video-gamer. They might be fun to mess around with on a limited basis, but when it all comes down to the bottom line, it's still illegal, since there is some form of piracy involved. Even the old Atari and Coleco Vision games are included, since they're still protected under the 75-year copyright laws.

Having them for "backup purposes" is useless. Games cannot be erased or made unplayable in any way (unless you take the sledgehammer to one). ROM sites that tell you to "delete them after 24 hours on a trial basis" is baloney. It's just an excuse made up on the net to justify having them available.

Anyway, as a serious collector, it bugs me when people claim to have hundreds of games, when all they really have is a bunch of ripped ROMs on their computer or a burned CD. All the games I have collected are authentic purchases, because I have always believed in supporting the video-game industry. I'll condone you if you experiment with them, because it can be fun to tweak settings and learn the inner workings of games, but you should not become dependent on them. Besides, emulation is never quite as good as the real thing. Go out and buy genuine games, so they will stay cheap for the future.

I will never post any emulators or ROMs, but if you want to see what emulation is all about, visit Zophar's Domain. You can try and use any standard search engine to find ROMs, but prepare to be given the run-around and wade through a flood of pop-ups, just to possibly find what you're looking for. I'm not responsible for anything you download.
