Been gaming since the original Super Mario Bros. Was blown away and hooked for life upon seeing Wolfenstein 3D for the first time.

After working as a systems/network administrator and doing PC repairs the next logical step was into web development. That is a very fun and rewarding career and I enjoy it immensely.

However there are some great electronics repair channels on YouTube and they inspired me to get back into hardware repair and gaming. It started slow, but things have escalated quickly.

The mission of The Hoick is to provide great refurbished consoles, either modded or stock, for a reasonable price.

We love keeping these old gaming machines working and providing enjoyment for years to come.
