Look at you -- all retro reviewy. Good stuff, certainly, but what brought this change of pace on?

I posted about it on my blog, but basically, I have a ton of retro games I've been wanting to play and review for years now, so I bought a retro system that lets me more conveniently do so and now I'm hoping to cover such stuff more frequently.

Despite occasional detractors (who shall remain nameless), our retro coverage is one of the things casual visitors most like about the site. I'm happy to play to our strengths, especially since I like retro gaming so much in the first place. It's reasonably easy to find people who will happily cover new games for the site in a freelance capacity (meaning we don't have to give up on that important element of our coverage), so that will maybe leave me more time to cover older stuff that still interests me.

Honestly, I'd be happy to see a bit of a retro revival here. Why should Joe have all the fun?

"What if everything you see is more than what you see--the person next to you is a warrior and the space that appears empty is a secret door to another world? What if something appears that shouldn't? You either dismiss it, or you accept that there is much more to the world than you think. Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto

I've tried posting bits and pieces on my blog now and then to see if anyone really notices. They don't. Further proof: this. Perhaps its time to bring back either (or both) the search all blog button of the forum tag stuff. yes, both have the downside of spam, but both have the upsides of perhaps dragging something out of obscurity.

I'm happy to see more retro stuff, anyway. Keep it up -- or else!
