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.
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.
