It's been a long time since I last shared any pics of my games room, and since then it's come along quite a bit. While its usual state is one of disarray, as it doubles as my beading workspace, last weekend it was super tidy, so I thought I'd take some pics.
Above is the view of the console setup under the loft bed. I like the slightly enclosed "cave" effect the loft bed creates. It also came in handy when I wanted to create a lightgun rack! All the lightgun systems are connected to the CRT TV, as they don't work on modern flatscreens, but more on the consoles in a bit. You can see my shelf with all my NES, SNES and Megadrive games - as you can see, I don't own that many to be honest. The Majora's Mask beadsprite is also a clock. And yes that is a technical drawing of a Gameboy. Oh and by the way, that Dawn of The Dead poster is signed by George A. Romero and Tom Savini, just sayin'.
To the left of the console cave we have bookshelves and a trophy case. The Amiibo shelf is getting particularly crowded, and I don't even own the whole range!
Here's a better look at some of my comic TPB's and other nerdy books, as well as the trophy cabinet and games shelves on the other side of the room.
Moving along, here are my bead supplies, along with some other random items like a Tron arcade marquee and some autographed basketball cards (the holy trinity of Magic, Jordan and Bird). Up on the wall we have a few pieces of bead artwork I've made - Rage Against The Machine debut album cover, Judge Dredd portrait (signed by John Wagner), and a portrait of Donatello from the 1990 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, signed by Kevin Eastman. The other bits and bobs are a Back To The Future 2 poster, a technical drawing of the Megadrive, various comics, a Tron propaganda poster and some beadsprites.
And now the systems I've got going on! Connected to the LCD TV is an original XBox (modded to play emulators), a GameCube, a PS1, an Atari 2600 rerelease (with built in games, it doesn't have a cartridge slot), a Megadrive and a SNES. The photo on the right is less clear due to the lack of light in the cave, but the consoles are: a modded Saturn (can play JAP and USA games, and at 60fps too), a PS2 slim, a Dreamcast and a NES clone. I love the look of the original NES (it brings back good memories), but I've been through too many blinking red lights to own one again. The clone may not look great, but it's reliable! I've managed to get all these consoles connected and ready to go at the same time, it's just a case of selecting the right input and hitting the right switcher button to get what you want working!
My name is Iain and my addiction is making pixel bead art. My main inspirations are comics, video games and movies.
