Swapped all addresses, I am now mostly satisfied with how the new site is operation. This site will of course remain online, both to ensure a backup incase the new site runs into problems and of course to keep all of our content from the past 3 years.
New site: www.RetroReviewRevolution.com or RetroReviewRevolution.x10.mx
Original site: original.RetroReviewRevolution.com or RetroReviewRevolution.webs.com
I know I haven't updated in a while. Don't worry guys, I have been VERY busy behind the scenes struggling to learn new things to bring this site into the modern era and stray away from being locked into the webs site builder. I have finally gotten everything into a (very) beta state that is now online at new.retroreviewrevolution.com
This new page will allow us huge benefits. Admins will be able to post direct to the main page using basic WordPress software. The forum will move to a standard phpbb forum that is easier to customize and alter. I was asked about adding NES themed icons, with this move that can now happen. There's still major bugs over there right now, and this site won't go anywhere but will be an archive for what we were, the link will just change to original.retroreviewrevolution.com. And this change is still a few months off. The worst part is that the new forum means re-registering on the new phpbb forum, and registering on the new server if you want to add stories to the front page as well. But I ensure you it will be worth it!
Happy New Year Everyone!
What an epic tournament we had this year, lots of great match up's. The final round came down to Shatterhand a site favorite, VS the legendary Ninja Gaiden 2.

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.
