    Ah, dunno what a Vectrex is

    Nice.
    Will we ever see that treatment with any of the games though?

    Oh, you mean like "lost" games WD was supposed to do or partially worked on like Elfaria, KoTM2, World Heroes, Ogre Battle, Tengai, etc?

    I do have a BIG box of audition tapes from the early WD era, probably through the Saturn that I intend to someday sort through and let people hear the fail auditions that had no chance of getting the parts and first auditions from the people that ultimately got the part.

    I'm not trying to be an *******. This post may come off this way at times but that is not my intention.

    Patience is a virtue, as always. The Wii U's failure was all too predictable. I still don't have an Xbone, PS4 or Wii U. I will likely get them all eventually (maybe not an Xbone) but I see no point until I can get a good deal on one or the price just drops (always does). I remember you posting about this when it happened and the very shocking part to me was that you seemed to be okay with the fact that you were hemorrhaging value compared to if you had put them on Ebay. At least in that situation you could have had a lot of money left over (I don't know the particulars but the best you were getting was 40% of what they were worth on anything worth a fair bit and that's making a generous assumption about the store you took them in to).

    That would be pretty funny.

    Edit: My biggest gaming regret story is selling off all my SCD and Saturn stuff back around 08. I got mostly full value out of it at the time but the only game with a similar value was Dragon Force. Games like Albert Odyssey, Popful Mail etc... were worth hardly anything in comparison. Iirc the top value Ebay price for Popful was about $60. I've since reacquired them all and more but it cost a lot, even getting deals.

    I love vector graphics. I was obsessing about the Atari vector games at the Arcade last week. Vectrex is amazing and I would love to have one if I could find one locally for a good price. Really afraid to order one online due to the monitor.

    Nothing compares. Vector is an amazing gaming experience.

    Oh no, the Vectrex monitor has a tendency to fail? Or is it just people don't maintenance them properly?

    The world's supply of Vectrex' has somehow ended up in Portland. I bought mine from a thrift store for a couple bucks and there are at least 3 of them at every retro game show we have. They're EVERYWHERE around here.

    They just don't ship very well. I've heard of stories of problems when people buy them off of Ebay.

    I've never seen one in the wild! If you found one for a couple bucks, that's just amazing!
