Vintage Comic Book Ads

Posted by JerryTerrifying On Sunday, November 28, 2010 4 comments

This past garage sale season I didn't find much along the lines of video games. I did however find a few houses that had boxes and boxes of old comic books. Most of the comics are from the mid 60's to the mid 90's nothing super rare or valuable. I looked around the boxes and picked out a few comics that leapt out at me as being interesting. I got a few Spectacular Spider Man's from 1977 and a few Batman's from the 80's. Coincidentally they both featured the Scarecrow despite one being from 1984 and the other from 1988.

The Memorex VIS

Posted by JerryTerrifying On Wednesday, November 24, 2010 10 comments

From time to time I accidentally win things on eBay.  Several of the best deals I have gotten have been on items I had zero intention of actually winning.  The Memorex VIS is newest item I've added to the collection by accident.   The auction had a Buy it Now price of $125 USD and a Make an Offer option.  I offered $70 thinking that there's no way the seller would accept an offer of $55 less than the asking price.  Boy was I wrong.  A few hours later I got the confirmation email letting me know I was the proud new owner of a Memorex VIS.

List of System Link Games

I've been trying to find a list of games that support system link/LAN gameplay.  Sadly this list doesn't exist on the internet.  At least not a comprehensive list covering multiple systems.  If you know of a game that's not listed that does support System Link/LAN let me know in the comments!

Xbox Hard Drive Upgrade

This morning I performed the Hard Drive upgrade and am now the proud owner of a 200gb original Xbox. It was pretty easy although there were a few hurtles to jump. The video tutorial I followed suggested using two Xboxes the second being used to power the second hard drive but this gave me some trouble. Partway through the cloning process the second Xbox powered down. Luckily I had a hard drive enclosure on hand which was perfect for powering the new hard drive.

Xbox Soft Modding, XBMC Tutorials and LAN Gaming!

Posted by JerryTerrifying On Tuesday, November 9, 2010 2 comments

Whenever I get interested in something I want to know everything about it and how it works and what I can use it for. Right now I'm interested in LAN parties and multiplayer events. I've been thinking that the original Xbox is an inexpensive and intersting route to start out upon. A while ago I softmodded my Xbox and hadn't really done anything with it. The process was fairly simple but recently I purchsed another Xbox for setting up some LAN events and I had to softmod it. I had to do a bit of googling to get everything I needed so I'm going to put together a tutorial and try to keep as much info in one conveniant place as possible.
