• magisterrex Retro Games


    I've been gaming since the days of Pong and still own a working Atari 2600. I tend to ramble on about retro games, whether they be board games, video games or PC games. Sometimes I digress. Decades after earning it, I'm finally putting the skills I learned while completing my history degree from the University of Victoria to good use. Or so I think. If you're into classic old school gaming, this blog is for you!

Another Happy Retrogamer: Unboxing a Memory!

Part of the joy of being a purveyor of retrogaming goodness is knowing the impact of reuniting gamers with their lost gaming memories, and the happiness that brings.  Usually that happiness is conveyed by a brief email from a buyer, or, more often than not, no contact whatsoever until their next purchase.  It is unheard of to ever see the unpacking of the shipping box and the first reaction when finding what’s inside…until now!

Recently Jorge, Editor-in-Chief of oldschooljunkie.com, purchased an original Atari AC power adapter for his Atari 2600 game console.   (Incidentally, if you aren’t visiting oldschooljunkie.com for the Retro Energy Shots, Lost Intros, First Rounds, and other features, you’re missing out!)  Being the video junkie that he is, Jorge filmed the event and posted it on his website.  Check it out by clicking on the banner below!:
