    What caused the gaming magazines to die out?

    The internet killed mags. Same thing happened to most print media. Newspapers for example.

    Restricting Abuse of the Download Manager

    I'm sure most just choose to ignore it.

    Electronic Gaming Monthly... Is it DEAD?

    Little late here, but I think EGM has gone quarterly. I have a sub and it seems i get one every 3 or 4 months.

    RETRO Magazine Slowing Down?

    EGM was the $hit back in the day. It hasnt been the same since it was brought back after Ziff Davis dumped it in the garbage.

    RETRO Magazine Slowing Down?

    Is this magazine any good? I've been needing another good gaming mag to go along with OXM since EGM seems to be a quarterly mag now.
  7. I prefer to stick with physical storage because I'm not sold on the cloud. I finally got rid of my cassette collection a few years ago so i guess I'm resistant to change.
  8. 98gb? How much is that costing you per month?

    SNES Playstation prototype discovered

    I think I read about this a month ago or so. The article was swearing this was a fake.

    Is Minecraft dying out?

    It SHOULD die off. Minecraft is horrible.

    Why don't more people play on PC?

    There are some great emulators available for Android. The really good ones aren't free but you get what you pay for. I have purchased emulators for the NES, SNES and Genesis and they are almost flawless. Even better if you spring for a good bluetooth control pad!
  13. Nexus 7 (2013). Its a few years old but it still runs everything silky smooth.

    Where do you buy you older systems?

    Ebay is your best choice IMO. Amazon sellers like to jack up their prices.

    What is considered a retro game?

    Retro gaming to me is anything that I grew up with. NES and Master System come to mind first. Damn I'm old lol!
