The Journey Begins

The Journey Begins

2nd April 2018 Off By thatretrovideogamer

We’ve all done it at some point and another..

We’ve looked at the many vlogging (god I hate to use the word..) ‘Celebrities’ and thought, how hard can it be to record a piece to camera, add a soundbite to a video, upload it and reap the rewards of a check from Mr and Mrs

Most of use also like to use the words ‘lucky b*st*rds probably too while we’re sitting in our day to day jobs, making ends meet and wondering if you really can make a career out of a hobby…

So this year after about a year of messing about with Youtube Videos recording gaming finds and random stuff for my gaming community friends and producing approx. 5 years of doing just random commentary through my twitter feed relating to gaming, I thought to myself… “what the hell!” let’s set this up as a proper site, tie up all my social media together and see where this leads…

Now first off, let me make this clear. connection-device-display-776092This site is meant to be more of a journey through history to cover off forgotten relics in gaming history… no not the SNESCD or the Pluto. You have other guys covering that far better than I ever could. I’m looking more at the companies that made the games, where they went right, where they went wrong. A brief history into their collected works, and a revisit back to some of the 80’s UK computer game programmers that got lost in the midst of the console wars and were never truly honoured…

Dare I mention I may even look to covering things that some communities just won’t speak about (*cough* Vega Pl.. *cough*) and what those connected individuals are doing now.
