  1. Hello Retromag community, i seem be to in a creators slump. Over the past years (2006-2008) I have owned/created/maintained an retro video game blog/site primarily focusing on retro games, import games, game reviews, and news from Akihabara, My main intentions were to create a simple straight-forward website dedicated to obscure Japanese video game news (similar to those of Insert Credit, Hardcore Gaming 101, Andirasang) which I did hold up for a three year period. Unfortunately closing 2009 due to lack of funds and poor hosting service. As of 2012 I purchased a domain and have enormous bandwidth to create something special, unique to the retro video game community. Currently finishing up the last touches on the page layouts, I come to the retro communities for advice. What do you want a Retro Video game site to offer? I really appreciate Retromags for its on-going contribution towards preserving vintage magazines throughout the decades. I also would be interested in a larger team/staff to really get Special-Attack ( back on the internet radar. If you are interested you can e-mail me or pm me.

  4. I regret selling a BUNCH of games when I was younger, but luckily I managed to hold on to a few gems though-out the years. I was browsing Ebay and notice how some titles price skyrocketed. So - what games/accessories/consoles, that you currently own, are highly valuable today? For me: Tales of Destiny - PS Team Buddies - PS Dragonball GT - PS Cubivore - GC Gotcha Force - GC Ultimate Muscle - GC Pikmin 2 - GC Gitaroo Man - PS2 Talk Man - PSP Tech Romancer - DC Cannon Spike - DC Contra 3 - SNES (boxed like new) Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt - NES (loose) Lunar - GBA (boxed like new)

  6. Why are PC Engine Hu-Cards so expensive overseas? I've read that in Japan you can pick up a used PCE for under $40. If the PCE sold very well in Japan, shouldn't the hu-cards be more affordable? Can anybody confirm this?
