8-bit Fridays: The Diaries – September 30th, 2016

The SNES at 25

The date was August 23, 1991, and that year the 23rd fell on a Friday. Don’t ask me to remember the day, or if I remember it having any significance, because I can’t. To many gamers though, it was a… Continue Reading →

Saying Goodbye to my Old Game Room

Having a gameroom of any kind isn’t easy when you have a family, but sometimes you do luck out. In my case it was the a-typical basement that became my mancave or as I preferred to call it my gameroom…. Continue Reading →

Mastering the Unknown – Getting to know the Sega Master System (Part 1)

Gen X.5: Part 4- The Cats Ninth Life in Gen 4.5
