[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 08/04/18


The week that has just passed has been one od the hardest in years. Unfortunately where I work I had both of my colleagues who got ill simultanoeusly and since we’re runnig that place in three I had to cover all the shifts for almost a whole week. This means that my dayly routine was wake up-breakfast-job…job-dinner-bed so I’m lucky I had scheduled a couple of articles for this week.

It has also been a discouraging week on the gaming side. The biggest regret is the ColecoVision I haven’t bought. I had followed that auction for like 10 days and when it was time to place the last offers I got involved with the job and I miss the end of the auction by like 5 minutes. The bad (very bad) thing is that the console went away for less than 40€ including three games, one of which was Wings od War by Imagic that I saw was quite valuable (around 20-25€ only that game). Considering that I’ve never seen ColecoVisions sold by less than 70-80€ I feel even more beaten.

I’m lucky that my thermodynamic philosophy tells me that “if has happened it’s because there’s somethign better around the corner”.  A small light at the end of the tunnes has come from another auction, this time won at, what I believe, a good price for three survival horror games I was looking for since last year when I first saw a video of the gameplay and other good stuff to fill my Resident Evil collection. More about them in the upcoming posts 🙂
