New Retrogaming website - RetroRetreat.net

by Xonticus Thu Oct 27, 2011 2:41 am

Hello everyone!

A few of my local friends and I have finally launched a Retro Video gaming website called Retro Retreat. We aim to focus on Retro Video Game Reviews, Hall of Fame Features covering the best of the best, "Memory Card Lane" section to have retrospective features of all kinds like video diaries and memories, "Unpopular Opinions" section to confess our love for things not widely accepted, and more to come!

I just launched the site not 2-3 weeks ago, have been adding many things and features, now I am going to start adding more content. My friends are contributing stuff as well, whenever they can. I am at the point where I can comfortably start showing it off to the public!

This is a labor of love project for me, sprouting from various rants and ideas I've had over the years but had no time to research, launch and maintain such an endeavor.

Thank you.
Got: Atari 2600, Atari 7800Pro, Commodore 64, Odyssey 2, Sega Master System, NES, Genesis Models 1-3, Nomad, Game Gear, Sega CD Model 1, Sega 32x, SuperNES, GameBoys, GameBoy Pocket, GBC, Sega Saturn Model 2, GBA, Nintendo 64, Playstation, Sega Dreamcast, Playstation 2 Slim, Nintendo DS Lite, Xbox 360, Gamecube, PS3 Slim

Very cool! Great to see more retro sites out there.

It looks like you are going to do more than just video game reviews - which is a good thing. There are a lot of review sites out there, so definitely get other editorials out there to separate yourself.

Can't wait to see more!

Cool -- looks like a solid start!

And, seriously, if you need a guy to help produce some content with retro-Nintendo flavor, we should get in touch -- email me at thenintendolegend@gmail.com or connect with me on Twitter, @Nintendo_Legend. I would be happy to network and get a little (and I mean a little -- I'm not enormously popular... yet :wink: ) publicity out there for you, as a fellow retro-gaming webmaster pursuing a labor of love.

What is your twitter handle for the site? It's either nothing like the name of your website, or my browser was having issues at work.
