    Bought a Mega CD. Modle 1, Japanese, no power. That's whatever, easy enough. $25 at Grainger gives me a glass fuse, holder, and region switch for Genesis. Installed region switch, a bit of shield modding but works great. Solder up the fuse (sloppy-ish trying not to heat up the diode next to it, but connected) and.... nothing. What? Clean EDGE connector, still same. Sometimes if I turn it on (1 in 50 chance) the lights flash on front, but that's all. Press "RESET" when its connected to the Genesis and the screen changes color from black to white, red, or blue.

    Ordered some caps for the power board just a bit ago. Looking at the mainboard, I see hell; RUST under most of the contacts and on the PCB, leaky SMD caps, and board corrosion thanks to it... off to a professional somewhere on Assembler it goes after I try recapping the power board. Or a friend of mine, he's confident he can fix it. I doubt it, because it looks like some of the traces need to be re-done.

    Really opens your eyes that these units are under everything, 20+ year old consumer electronics that were not built to last this long... looks like its time to do some work to my other consoles. Recap is in order for the X'Eye, NGCD, Saturn, and both Genesises I guess. Lot of work.

    Bad one like. But that much rust will be bad storage rather than bad build quality.
    Tic Tac, sir?

    Of course, but still, they weren't meant to live this long.

    So I am doing the recap and realized I hate desoldering braids more than anything else in this whole world. Ended up ripping the eyelet (or "via") out of the PCB. That's sudden death for me, but it goes off to someone else to finish the job. Man, and I thought it was just gonna be a fuse.

    Bought more crap. Got 2 PS1s, a PS2, and a PSP for $30 all broken, but power on. PS1s need lasers thanks to the crappy plastic sled used on the CD drive and I have not a clue what's up with the PS2 or PSP yet.

    I recently bought Shenmue ( for the third time!) and dying light for the PS4.
    I have to say I can't wait for call of Cthulhu to come out! 😀

    DOOM (2016) and SLW, both run surprisingly well in Wine, getting 100+ fps in DOOM with ultra settings.

    Brought quite a few games in the Steam sale. Age of Empires II, SFV season 2 pass, Portal 2, Psychonauts, Gone Home, Doom and Enter the Gungeon.

    Enter the Gungeon has become by life. There is no work. There is no play. Only Entering the Gungeon.
