    Hello!

    First gamed with Nintendo back when I used my paper route money to buy a NES in 86.

    Had a SNES and Gameboy.......

    Then jumped over to Sony exclusively for PS1 and PS2 generation....I only played on console war Victors to this point LOL.

    Gaming sort of faded from my life when I had young family but eventually the kids got in to gaming when mom got a DSlite....then saw a Wii on a shelf at Costco and it was the hot thing so impulse buy.

    This got me back in to Nintendo and I went in to the backlog of games I had missed.

    Did get a PS3 eventually used as well but mostly played Wii.

    Got the Wii U (the only failing console I owned) and the 3DS.

    Got a PS4.

    Got the Switch.

    Did eventually buy a used Gamecube, a used Gameboy SP, and a new PSP right before they dissapeared from stores permanently.

    Never gamed much on PC because gaming hardware always seem too expensive.

    Trying to replace my broken PS3 (spent $180 to repair my BC PS2 and it got stolen from my front door when it got shipped back) , replaced the NES I sold in 2000, replaced the PS1 I got stolen, don't know what happened to my SNES somehow lost it when I moved out of the house at 18-19 years old, probably stolen, don't know what happened to my old Gameboy either but I have an SP to play all those carts.

    It seems like a lot of your stuff gets stolen. A good firearm might help with that.

    Anyhow, welcome! It's nice to meet you!

    Welcome to this happy magical Nintendo place.

    No need to be ashamed of owning a "failing" Wii U. These forums were named "Wii U forums" from mid 2012 til about 3 months ago. Most of us own a Wii U and love it.

    Reminds me of something that happened in high school. This kid stole my Gameboy Advance SP and a copy of Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga. I knew it was him, and he would not give it back. And the teachers did nothing. So when school got out that day, I filed a police report on him lol. The following day, the principal called us both in the office, with police report in hand. He gave up the Game Boy right then and there.

    Well with gamestop and music trader taking trade in's for cash stealing video games was always an easy way for kids to score a bag of weed back in the day lol.

    Cool story about the police report. I considered doing that for my PS3 thinking maybe my home owners insurance might pay out. Trying to get the sender to file a claim and send me the money but I am buying a used PS3 in 5 minutes here. Not a BC model like I hade but my PS2 and PS1 still work so no big deal I guess.

    Apparently Axl has a higher range than Mariah Carey and a lower range than Barry White.
