Rob Daviau's Interview on Scenic 7

Our very own Rob Daviau has just been interviewed for Scenic 7. The write-up covers his background and reasons for joining Armchair Arcade, as well as his thoughts on Monroeworld forums. I think my favorite part was the bit about the "me-too" generation who pick up an Atari-themed shirt at a mall and think they're suddenly retrogamers. Go check it out! As always, thanks to Carl Williams (aka Triverse).

MaximumRD Indicted in Illegal ColecoVision Scheme

MaximumRD Indicted!: MaximumRD, aka Rob Daviau, is in big trouble (arrest photo).MaximumRD Indicted!: MaximumRD, aka Rob Daviau, is in big trouble (arrest photo).Some sad news for those of us who know and love MaximumRD, host of the popular YouTube program dedicated to classic gaming hardware. A Canadian investigation into his activities has led to his arrest and indictment. While the details of the case are still vague (repeated calls to the Toronto officials revealed little info), it appears that Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo have accused him of tricking local residents into thinking that the ColecoVision and games such as Lady Bug and Donkey Kong are just as fun as modern games. Indeed, apparently a few people who bought ColecoVisions from him enjoyed them intensely for months before realizing they weren't awesome. I was able to get in touch with a few of these poor kids, who still think that playing Mr. Do is just as satisfying (if not more so) than Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Rob's ColecoVisions were confiscated along with several other contraband consoles that clearly weren't nearly as good as anything out today because they suck.

I will continue to reveal information as it comes to me, but by all means do *NOT* insinuate to anyone that classic games and consoles are "just as fun" as the latest offerings from Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo. Doing so isn't just libelous; it's immoral.
