No Game Over for Retrogamers!

Bill Loguidice's picture

The San Antonio Express-News has posted the Web version of their article, The game isn't over yet for retro gamers. While I am clearly mentioning this particular article because I was interviewed in it, I'm also happy to say that it's well-written and researched, which is certainly not the norm for something mainstream like this. So, head on over to their Website and check out the article on our favorite hobby, pronto!

Game Over

Game Over just recently opened their Houston store. They have a really fun museum section in the back that has every console released (mainstream U.S.). They also have boxed mounted up on the wall. Their Atari 5200 box is in terrible shape. Mine is in much better condition, so I am donating it to them. I'll probably drop it off this weekend.

It sure takes up a lot of space!

It's a pity then that you weren't available for the interview considering it was your neck of the woods.

Oddly enough, even though I try to avoid system boxes since they tend to take up extra space, I actually have an Atari 5200 box myself and I must say it's quite large. Unusually so. So is the Atari 800 box for that matter.

That's funny as it appears to be a slightly different version of the article. In the original, my last name appears three times, in this one, I only have the one quote. I demand to be heard! ;-)

Oldies but goodies! And for

Oldies but goodies! And for me they are worth playing and keeping. Mega man is one of the best since 1980's. I had an original copy of it, unfortunately I can't find it. I think it was lost. Anyway, retro gaming is still fave by those oldies like me. You rock!

Playing is far more moneymaking at this particular online casino canada in comparison with similar on line casinos and they are definitely thrilling and interesting likewise.
