i am writing a page about the Sharen alliance and it’s time to put a Balvhakara cameo in… Then i see there’s only one balvhakara cameo in the entire list! So, Aerisa, yours get suddenly top priority because i need to draw her! Sorry to miburo and razorburn, your two come after. Then gem’s commission.
Photos of the game collection taken by my sister Karyne Gagné, before the arrival of most of the arcade cabinets. At the time of this post, there is 2100 games, 8 arcades, 82 consoles. (that does not include doubles or digitaly downloaded games) These are connected to two CRT tv, one 48″ for the old 4:3 games and a 52″ for those that support widescreen. While the modern game room has a LED hybrid 120″ projector. This collecting hobby begun in 2013 when i had a wave of nostalgia for my childhood games of the 80s and 90s. Which, like most people my generation, got rid of at some point or had played most of them as rental. Well, i’m getting them all back, and more! Games are my passion, my inspiration, what i listen to at work, what i talk about, what i draw for fun, so, it feel right to collect them. I may not play them all, but most of them are linked to good memories. Even for the neo geos , as some of these consoles were things i was dreaming to get as a child, but never could. Nostalgia, dream fulfillment, inspiration, it’s all mixed up with a goal to make use of the basement again. Which had been abandonned for years due to the house… issues. I couldn’t repair the house but i sure fill the basement with things that made us want to go down there again!
Many of those were thanks to you guys. Like Madea, Bast, Smokehammer, Jaybird, Tsukiko.
