Preserving the classics since 1997.

|The GameCube Vault is now open! All games are cataloged and content is being added alphabetically. Games can be played using Dolphin from the Emulation Lair, though you'll need a powerful system for many of them.|
|Time for a behind the scenes update at Vimm's Lair.
First off a disk that was acting up for several months has finally been replaced. Vimm's Lair was down for several evenings and a full day while the belligerent disk was interrogated. It eventually cracked though many manuals and screen shots were lost. Most are backed up and are being gradually restored.
The Vault has been updated with loads of publisher and serial data courtesy of GameFaqs. This also revealed several unlabeled SNES games that are actually unreleased prototypes, as well as a few European and Mexican releases which have been removed. Most people don't care about serials, but it's handy to identify a game since different sites often use different titles. The NES, Genesis, and handheld systems are up next.
With the release of Wii U the GameCube is now two generations old and eligible for inclusion in The Vault. A GameCube section is in the works and the current plan is to open it once all games have been cataloged, then to fill in the downloads alphabetically. Despite its commercial ranking the GameCube managed to release quite a few games and the Dolphin emulator handles many of them quite well if your computer is powerful enough.
|After nearly two years in progress the Playstation Vault is finally filled! Game details and screen shots are being filled in next. So if you've got a hankering for some good ol' PS1 nostalgia, head on over to the Playstation Vault!
A couple weeks ago some disk errors blew away random files causing parts of the site to break. Everything has now been restored and a fresh backup has been made, so any future issues should be repaired quickly. Thanks for everyone who reported the trouble.
