• 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!

Treasures Found While Cruising the Al Gore: NintendoLegend.com

Something that I don’t do enough of is shoutouts to other retrogaming sites on the fabulous Al Gore Superhighway. There are so many people providing some high quality content, whether that content is video or text, longplays, reviews, interviews, historical anecdotes, or a host of topics that is as varied as retrogaming itself.   However, it’s been some time since my last site shoutout, so that ends tonight!

It was either this logo or Eric in his stylish hat.Tonight I’d like to spotlight a site run by one of the most prolific tweeters I’ve seen on Twitter, @Nintendo_Legend (aka Eric Bailey). His website is NintendoLegend.com, and is devoted to the Nintendo Entertainment System’s library of games.  Eric’s stated mission is to review them ALL, and as of this writing, his goal is 29% complete, with 221 reviews already written. (Amazingly, not only is Eric completed committed to reviewing every single NES cartridge ever made, he’s also found the time to quarterback a new multi-contributor gaming site called 1MoreCastle.com.  I suspect he’s the Energizer Bunny of retrogamers. But I digress…)

There’s some great stuff here, both in what is written as well as the multitude of screenshots.  This site is well worth a look, which will probably turn into a very long read through hundreds of NES reviews!   Check it out!

  1. Thanks for the heads-up to this site. It’s a massive task to try to review the whole library of NES titles, and the fact he’s nearing 30% is amazing!
