Well, it's no disco storage, but it'll get me by until I fill it back up again.


DVDs are off the shelves and will HOPEFULLY find a new home soon.

That makes room for the ol' game collection which has been growing sorta out of control lately. This leave me with a fair amount of room. Still have about 30 SNES games to case, about 30 NES, 15 Genesis, a handful of N64, and now I've got GameGear games to sort out too thanks to a trade. They're gonna fill up quickly...

Ok wiggy. Another question. I also have a bunch of game gear games. What are you using to case them?

Nothing yet, but I suspect I'll end up shoving 'em into DS cases like all my other portable games ;)

That's what everything I looked at suggested too. I guess I'll look at getting a mess of them. There was a pretty good tutorial about modding those DS cases to fit virtual boy and game gear games. Both of which I could use.

Wow,great collections. Wish i had room to properly store/organize my collection like that. Most of mine is in the closet, or in under bed storage tubs.

Crap, I didn't know EVO had gotten so valuable. I picked up a cart only copy at a yard sale last summer, and haven't even tried it yet. Maybe i'll have to trade it off.

Translation: I have a certain job skill that lets me whore myself out with it, in return I get games as payment.

Did I make good sense of that?

I've got games!

Um, not really.

I just like trading for stuff. I really don't do much in the way of trading for my services. I find that games and game-related stuff don't really help pay bills :P

I can't believe those SNES prices... Holy crap.

Anyway, how often do you guys clean the dust and how? (Can of air, feather duster, microfiber towel, etc.) It's a pain to have to take the games down to wipe them down every time. Not to mention the Lego models I have.

Before I put all mine in totes, the best thing that I did was buying a humidifier and a couple damp-x things. Also I ran an air purifier and I hardly had to worry about dust at all.

Wow, you know what's funny is I suffer from allergies too and I never even thought of running an air purifier. Any recommendations? I'm going to start doing research on that now haha.

What kind of air purifier? We had one of those... ion charge things but that didn't seem to help with the dust.

I used to work at RadioShack so I got the LifeWise brand since I got a huge discount on items that were part of the RadioShack brand. Then when they went on clearance I bought another. They worked great.

Old T-shirt dampened with some soapy water. I just wipe across an entire row at once. My shelves are really tight (from top of shelve to bottom), so stuff doesn't get dusty very often. Less room for it to sneak in ;)

my room has a REDICULOUS dust problem. I literally have to clean everything several times a day:cry: if anyone has a good cheap option, it would really help

Hey, you look like you have a lot of money; how about donating some of it to my Extra Life drive?

As long as you have lots of electronics in your room unfortunately dust will continue to build up fast. I clean every week because there's just so much dust build-up unfortunately. =\

Do you live in an apartment or a house? If you live in a house, make sure you're changing out the central air filters on a regular basis. They're cheap and they help keep the dust in the house under control. You can also buy nice reusable ones that you can just spray off with a hose outside when they need cleaning.

If you live in an apartment, especially an older one, it might not be that easy. My old apartment complex had been around for a long time and I once looked into the air ducts with a light and there were huge mounds of dust. It was awful. It looked like I was obviously the only person who ever lived there and knew about using air filters since there wasn't one when I moved in.

I couldn't afford to have a company come in and clean the ducts because it was pretty expensive, so I just had to do the best I could with a shop vac and a bunch of vacuum hose extensions hooked together. I think I filled it about four times by the time I was finished. Still had dust because I couldn't get it all, but I think it helped some.

At my current house, I dust every two weeks and it really doesn't build up that bad, I could probably push it to every three weeks if I wanted to. I change the air filters every other month, use Swiffers on electronics, and I get everything else with the the hose + brush attachment on the vacuum. The vacuum cleaner makes a huge difference because it's not just pushing the dust around. The only reason I use the Swiffers on electronics is because I don't want to create any static and ruin them.

Depends where in the world/country you live too, filter swap or no.

I dust MAYBE once a month in the winter, and about every 2-3 weeks in the (way too short) warm season.



Though I prolly should dust more often with my terrible allergies...

Well Wiggy, seeing all of your custom covers for so long has inspired me and I've decided to try my hand at making some for my Genesis games. Gonna pick up some UGC's down the road but I felt like messing around with photoshop tonight and tried my hand at this.

As epic as the original Musha art is, I just won a copy of the game cart only last night and figured that would be a good starting point. The one thing that always bugged me was the lack of uniformity in the Genesis covers with so many variants. I always was quite fond of the original black gridline design and decided to try and make a Musha cover on that.

It is not finished at the moment still gotta do the back but figured I'd give a quick look and see if anyone likes what I came up with so far.
