Gaming Restoration& Preservation
They say, if it ain't broken, don't fix it
But sometimes you have to restore and preserve it!
We all have experienced this at least once. Something in your new cartridge is rattling. The favorite game won’t boot anymore or the “L” and “R” triggers of your controller are stuck. Throw your precious stuff away? No way! There is always a fix it for that. Restore and preserve. It’s not as hard as it seems! In the next few weeks, we are going to post some fixes, preservation and restorations for your precious gaming setup. Check out some of our upcoming projects!
That whole restoration & preservation thing...
I´m no good handyman, can I do this all by myself?
Trust us, we aren’t good handyman either. But most repairs or mods are not that hard, as long as you have the right tools for the job or know one or two workarounds. Of course, we´re going to post the links to everything you need, so you don’t have to search where you get the stuff. And for the fixes that even we can´t do, we will find somebody that can! One such awesome site, for example, is ifixit!
We think, old games and consoles are worth to preserve. This is all the more important as we all are traveling towards a “fully digital” future. Thats the reason why we, the video game and retro collectors, have to restorate our stuff and keep our physical media in good shape.
I guess this is gonna be interesting, so I hope you join us on our “restoration & preservation” adventure.
