Is retro collecting all about reliving your childhood, is it a way to invest in stuff that's going to be worth a fortune down the line or is it hoarding mania? Tyma joins Danny and Stian to tell their stories of retro collecting, battered Nintendo's that still work, the feeling of finding a mint Castlevania Symphony of the Night at a yard sale and how awesome discovering a Legend of Mana US import in a Scandinavian store was before the advent of online shopping.

Where is collecting going to be in a future of all digital downloads?

Lastly Tyma realises that his passion for collecting music games has been explained in a poop related psychological theory by Sigmund Freud.
