Well Hello !
Cauterize suggested I should introduce myself, so here I go.
Name's Triforce, realname's Fabien. I'm a french gamer in his early 30's and had a sudden rush for nostalgia. After trying to play Zelda's Link to The Past on the Wii Virtual Console and failed (something wrong with the new TV, I don't know), I decided that it would be best for me to try and look for the real thing rather than trying yet another emulator.
So I got a couple of GBA games off a thrift shop, and started playing LTTP on my gf's DS. Even though it's nice, I got (just yesterday) a real Gameboy Advance SP off ebay. I decided to start collecting these games because of the incredible amount of amazing gems this little platform can play.
Regarding my gaming history, I started early with an Atari 2600. I remember at the time, Pitfall was the most amazing thing. Video games and computers were always part of my life, as long as I can remember. And they're always linked to amazing childhood memories. I remember playing Zelda and Bomberman on my friend's SNES, I remember playing Mario on another friend's NES. I remember trying to comunicate with aliens in Captain Blood on the CPC, or challenging my dad over Columns on the Game Gear.
Trying to keep track on my upcoming collection, I stumbled upon retrocollect and was immediately pleased by the general feeling of the community, which seems really nice. Not mentioning the amazing look of the website
Anyways, hello everyone, and let's hope I'll be able to contribute !
