• 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!

Review a Bad Game Day Movement Gathers Momentum

Everyone who’s ever been a game player on any kind of gaming platform has experienced the bile-inducing wonder of a terribly made game. These are the games that made you want to send the offending game media through the wood chipper Fargo-style, and made you question the sanity and intelligence of the development team that produced such an epic piece of gaming garbage.  Wouldn’t it be nice if a group of game reviewers got together and presented their bad game experiences to the entire gamerverse?  And what if they all decided to do it on a single day?

Wouldn’t that be fun?

Mark your calendars, as already 45 game reviewers have signed on to participate in Review a Bad Game Day, scheduled for August 8, 2012.  There will be plenty of laughs, tears, and complete gaming fail for all involved!

Check out the press release from Eric Bailey, Chicago Vintage Video Games Examiner contributor, for more information (including how to add your own website to the event)!
