Here is something I always wanted to show this place, after giving each of the 95+ items it's own sub gallery section.
What I did was create sub folders to all the parts of the collection, this took me half a day to sort out rofl
But hey it surely make it worth while doing right
Here you have it people, on October 24 this year I have been collecting for a good 17 years ...
Descent 2 Series
Descent 3 Series
Descent Combo Packs
Descent Linux Series
Descent Macintosh series
Descent Playstation Series
Descent Mini Posters
Descent Mouse Pads
Descent Misc Items:
Descent Freespace Series
Descent Freespace 2 Series
Descent Freespace Combo Packs

So there you have it all 89 items, some may ask why I collect these well, Descent & Freespace have very well thought original designs and since day one they were released as demo's I got hooked to them and wanted only more and more and now this is my result, collecting these games has always been on my mind first you like it a lot then it becomes an addition then it becomes an obsession, no matter the more I can find the greater the thrill!
My latest achievements were these:
Descent3: Mercenary USA Pre-Release Factory Sealed + NOT FOR RESALE Decal under the seal on the box
Click to Enter!
Great and many thanks to a good friend of mine from USA for this one, a gift of many words 8-)
The Interplay 20th Anniversary Edition is finally achieved and obtained http://cgi.ebay.ie/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360301497899&ssPageName=STRK
Finally it is Mine
The Entire Freespace Collection as it is of now 8)
Well, that was Freespace so far, it's smaller than I thought it would be, but very interesting none the less.
The latest addition was this interesting package from from MasternX a guy that has a contact with one of the cleaners that worked @ Interplay HQ back in 2003 to 2004, when it was being cleared whafter it shut down.
So here's the parts in a one shot:
That frame hung in the Interplay HQ Office hallways, them CD-R's are host software of Descent 1 and 2, the one with the scratches is the Descent 1 Alpha disc, this is where it all began before it was going final, the one from 1996 is the host disk for Descent Anniversary Edition me thinks hence the date of the disk, unless some Interplay Employee's can help me out here!
Anyways this came to me all thanks to MasternX from this website:http://forums.my-collections.eu/
However I just left that place, somethings didn't feel right, ah well no matter, sometimes it's best to leave a place before all hell breaks loose 8)
Okay here it is, only two items missing within the uber shot, which is the Interplay 7 level Descent Demo USA mini boxed:
BytingEdge International Inc. USA Descent 3-D Air Combat 7 Level Descent Demo
And they are within one of them many boxes and no I am not gonna do this again, since I just tidied up rofl, So to relay it all for just two lousy items? uhm no rofl
Here the entire lot:
And only the boxes which is like 70% of the entire collection:
Anyways it's Ultra HUGE! And yeah it's bigger than I though it was really! Crikey it even scared me rofl
I also made a little tributional video of this with Dire Straits - So Long
So yeah, since October 24, 1994 til this very day, it was well worth doing and yes I will keep on collecting if I come across something I don't own yet, don't worry my friends, it will keep growing as long as I keep finding new items to add to it 8)
The only ones I seek now are these in boxed or factory sealed condition:
Descent: First Strike for Apple Macintosh:
Descent II: Counterstrike for Apple Macintosh:
Descent 3: The Saga Continues for Apple Macintosh:
So yeah it's pretty much complete now 8)
Anyhow as the last half year goes, I have had mixed feelings about all this, of like selling it, but hey after at looking on what I have gathered all them years, I have decided to keep it all for now, it is a unique thing after all right.
