Retro, the US based video game magazine startup, has begun on Kickstarter with a goal of 50 thousand USD, should be achievable. I know we are all huge retro fans here, and the UK has had Retro Gamer magazine for awhile, so its time for a US version. Lets help these guys out! The guys behind GameGavel are doing this mag, so you know its good people behind it.
First up, I have created 2 Firefox themes for RRR. Anyone is free to use these themes on their copy of Firefox if they want. The links are https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/rrr-theme/ and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/rrr-second-theme/ The themes are pending approval, but should be up within 24 hours of this post.
Also make sure to get your NESt votes in! The tournament is about to enter round 2, so don't get left out of the early runs!
Finally, I fully realize that content has been pretty slow coming the past few weeks, so I want to try something new: a weekly rant. At least once a week I will try to post a video giving my opinions on certain things in gaming, either on a particular game, industrywise, or other. It could stir controversy but should be interesting to see what conversations spark from it!
First up, its time for the NES Tournament! A new forum has been created for the tournament this year, which is now being ran by NES_Pimp. I'd like to thank NES_Pimp for taking the time to run this, and Anticitizen for running it in years past.
Friends of RRR Retro Gaming Roundup have released CGE Adventures for the Atari 2600. I managed to snag a copy that you can check here, it plays a lot like an expanded version of Adventure and has some hardware tricks that give it graphics normal 2600 carts don't have.
Also I am sure you guys are wondering why I am still updating slowly after taking a job with less hours. The reason why is that I have formed a band. Titled What Is a Man, we play metal, rock, and yes, video game covers! We took the name from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. We are looking for another guitarist, bassist, and perhaps a vocalist. You can check out our stuff in the videos section or on soundcloud. And no worries, RRR isn't going anywhere.
The NES-athon benefit got $3635 dollars to benefit Multiple Sclorosis patients. Great job to all involved!
Finally, RetroSnow has decided to retire and pull his Youtube videos. I tried to hurry and download his videos, but they had already been removed. Bracey feels that his reviews are a chapter in his life he is bringing to an end due to other interests. I'd like to thank him for the entertainment he brought us and the work he put into his videos.
