Show Us Yours: That’s A Lot Of Protection

This is the post where you get to show off your gaming setup and collection to the entire world. Let's take a look now!

The idea of Show Us Yours is you take some photos of your games collection or your gaming room or your gaming cupboard or whatever else you have in your house that is about you playing games. You then send us your photos along with a few comments about what makes yours so special. Then we publish it here on a Thursday afternoon.

The regal, land-owning Lord Tyris sent us these snaps of his gaming estate. It is quite impressive! (Click to enlarge each pic.)

I can spot one Guitar Hero drumkit (though Lord Tyris says he owns three) and mic stand. Three plastic guitars tucked away in the corner - and is that a DJ Hero turntable next to them? Another three plastic guitars propped up on the delightful blue couch. A Mario statue and steering wheel on the shelf. A Wii Fit balance board. Apparently that's a Relakkuma cape draped over the back of the couch. Someone sure has eclectic tastes.

Let's take a closer look.

Zooming in on that side shelf we can see the rows of PS3, 360, Wii and Gamecube games, plus a bunch of Blu-rays and various DVD box sets. Not bad. What I love, however, is the basket of Gamecube controllers (four of them!) sitting next to the basket that appears to be stuffed full of Wii nunchuks. And then, over on the other side, is that really EIGHT Wii prophylactics? That is a lot of protection. And - oh my! - four Game Boy Advances which Lord Tyris claims are for playing Crystal Chronicles.

Magnificent!

Swinging around, we get a close-up of the coffee table. The 50-inch TV looms over a Final Fantasy XIII PS3, an [email protected] face-plated Xbox 360, and... a bog-standard Wii. The Wiimotes on the charging station with different coloured wrist-straps are cute. Who are all those anime girls, though? Tyris won't say.

Now let's pull back and pan right.

A PC! With dual monitors and likewise littered with anime figurines. Best of all, though, are the red and green shell plushies on the floor. Mario Kart footrests!

I'll leave you with one final pic. See if you spot what's wrong with it.

    Finally!

    Dunno what's wrong with the last picture apart from the radio being so close to the Wii. You can't play Skyward Sword with wireless interference!

    "My arm" ... "My arm" ... "I can't feel my arm"

    Nice set up. Looks like its blocking the door way a bit though :P I love the FFXIII PS3!

    Mario's hand is detached.... !!!! Noooooooo...

      Err. Arm rather.

        Unfortunately he lost his arm in transit from Japan a couple of years ago =(
        I tried gluing it back on, but about 35 seconds after attempting that a friend popped into my room and promptly exclaimed "cool! a mario... o... the arm is broken", ruining my (probably shoddy) handywork... I never tried again...

    In the last picture.. Is it Mario's arm you are referring too? LOL

    One stop shop for all your casual gaming needs - lol

    That's a pretty decent collection you have there mate. One question though - why so many guitars? It seems like a lot to have..

      I originally got GH3 (or was it 2?) for X360. I then got another guitar... eventually the GH4 bundle with drumkit, guitar, mic.
      Thats 3 guitars. Then I got the logitech 360 guitar and drum kit (fantastic deals at the time).

      However, I've long lamented the fact that since I have a Japanese 360, I cannot play Rock Band (Beatles and Lego work and one or two of the "track packs"). So when I saw a Logitech 2xGuitar+1xDrums for super cheap (on ozbargain) I jumped on it and brought them for PS3 along with RB2.

      I've always planned to sell off the older stuff... but I'm ever the hoarder.

    I still can't find anything in the last photo but could you please re-attach Mario's arm? He just doesn't look right

    poor mario's missing an arm =(

    Koopa Shells!! Cool! Where can you get these? Are they official? Never seen them before.

    Gotta submit my photos when i get the chance.

      Got them from Japan (I can remember the exact store, though not name of it... its around the corner from M's (an adult cosplay shop) in Akihabara for those familiar with the area).
      I *think* they were official (I'll check the tags tonight maybe...)
      They're a lot flatter than they used to be after many years (4) of heavy foot supporting.

        They're made by a company called sk-Japan
        http://www.sk-japan.co.jp/

        The company makes a lot of licensed products so I'm assuming they are legit. I'm afraid I can't really say if you can get them online or not (maybe that site will help if you can read Japanese...)

          Ah thanks for the info. Guess I have to hunt on eBay...

    3 logitech guitars, i wish i had one. Got the drumkit though

    That is a LOT of Wii-mote sleeves. And none on the wii-motes! Tsk, tsk.

    Thanks for the fantastic write-up David.
    A shame I didn't have my new 27" Dell monitor and my slightly wider desk in place when I took these photos.

      Sorry for double-post... I thought it worth pointing out: the reason for 8 wii-mote "protectors" is that 4 of them are the Nintendo freebies (that they sent out for free), and the other 4 are Wii+ adaptors.
      The coloured wii-mote straps are official from Nintendo Japan.

    haha very impressive... and all the Wii-condoms? There's quite a few of those there too hehe

    The second last one has the only problem, I do believe that is a cased Melbourne Demons Guernsey up the back.

    i wish i had a room that i could put all my stuff in like that atm its all piled up in a tiny room with most of it un accesable without some sort of dig dug device to break the surface of the other projects in there

      I moved home to my parents recently... So thats the upstairs lounge I've taken over...
      I previously lived with 2 other gamers... smaller lounge... more stuff... ;)

    god your lame tyris...pizza's/futurarma next friday?

    also sorry for the double post..

    but what my mate is not telling you about this room. is that the couch is horribly uncomfortable to sit on, most of the time we perch on the backrest to play guitar hero.

    also is desk chair leaves your ass with a permanent checked imprint on it. oh and it's almost worse then the couch =p

    oh and the Wii fit board is used more often as a food table. ;D

      Guilty as charged... I plan on stealing one of the green couches from downstairs soon.
      I should also buy myself a luxurious command center chair.

    is 60+ xbox 360 games impressive?
    should i send a photo or is that normal here lol

    i like the Simca and Tsuruya figurines <3

      You have good taste. I have a few more Air Gear figs in my room... they're far more... I mean "less" clothed though.

    I wish I had a gaming room. And a mario statue. Pretty nice collection dude!

    Loses points for that Demons jumper in the background.

    TV is too big for the room

    Mio Akiyama figurine is win. I'm just lol-ing at the fact that there are so many Guitar Hero sets there and there are no actual guitars included in the picture.

    I need to do this now, just recently went to IKEA so alot of the crap is now organised!
