I've had a handful of folk tell me that they missed my write-ups for the One Game, One Day, One Year project. Hey, me too; I enjoyed the writing, the retro-gaming, and the praise or snark that would emerge. As I mentioned, I felt that my retro games were rather out of touch with what's happening in modern gaming, and being unemployed prevented me from trying out the newest materials. (I'm just dying to try out Child of Eden for the Xbox Kinect!)

However, as there are some titles that I actually do feel the need to purchase, I found myself at the point where I had to liquidize portions of my Collection to acquire said titles and the OGODOY project helped me find which ones were the first to leave my house. the Collection is now down to under the 365 mark, meaning that the OGODOY project is now impossible to accomplish, which is fine as this is all an embarassment of riches anyway. What I'm going to do is convert the OGODOY project to a new proejct simply called "The Collection." These are still games that I own, but I won't need to do them on some preposterous schedule.

In short: no income, no more OGODOY, now it's Collection. My next entry covers the title I picked up today.

I have several GBA games in my hoard, but you'll notice that I've not included a one of them as of yet. There are two reasons for this:

First, the GBA hardware was not backlit, causing some difficulty in seeing the screen without some sort of lighting addition until the GBA SP was released. Thus, if I were to try to take any pics of those games, they'd turn out like this-



Second, I can't seem to find the DS which can play GBA games. Since the DS is backlit, I could use it to play the GBA games as it also features some backwards compatibility (this feature is absent from my DSi.) It's missing, along with several of my DS games, which means they're all stashed in some box somewhere. Sigh. *This* is why I catalogue and oversee the transport of games in this house; I foam at the mouth when stuff goes missing. (No, I certainly don't blame anyone who helped us move.)

Anyway, just thought I'd share that.
