Variety is the spice of life

My box of varied game carts arrived today.  There’s nothing more satisfying than a cardboard box containing carts for no less than 6 different systems.  I got to try out Football Soccer for the Vectrex, and while I don’t usually like Soccer games, this one had that undeniable Vectrex charm.

I think that’s the power of the Vectrex, that the particular game you’re playing doens’t really matter, all things are appealing on the vector based box of love.

I lost to the computer 4 nil, but had a cracking good time doing so.  I feel as though I can’t really let myself enjoy the game though, simply because if I did I’d thrash the Vectrex joystick to breaking point.



The picture with this post, in case you’re wondering, is my makeshift attempt at using the cool light fixture I picked up at a second hand office furniture place for $20.  It makes a nice light for displaying stuff on a shelf.  Eventually I’ll get all handyman on it and screw it to the shelf permanently, but for now it’s just leaning there, showing off an Atari 2600 and a few choice game boxes.
