Just read this article over at Retro Gaming Australia and thought I'd repost it here.

It's definitely a costly endeavour to have a retro games collection! This article gives some hints on why that is, and why the price of retro games has spiked in just the last few years. Interesting stuff!

First one for 2014!
Can you believe I started this blog over 3 years ago...? I can't...

So had you played either of these before? They're fairly obscure. Here are the ratings...

In the video I mentioned an interview with a couple of guys who worked on Maui Mallard. It was on, which sadly has closed down, but the interview is still online.

I hope you had a happy new year. I've been finishing unfinished games left-right-and-centre lately. Rayman Legends (fantastic), Mario 3D World (brilliant), Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (very good, but a smidge too long, and I wasn't happy with the almost-game-breaking bugs with the 3DS's accelorometer), Ratchet & Clank: Nexus (quite good, but it's short, and certainly not top-form for the series) and Batman: Arkham Origins. (decent, but nowhere near as good or original as the first two games)

I'm just about to go away on holiday for a week, so I'll likely have time to catch up on a few more handheld games that have fallen by the wayside. My pile of shame is pretty... well, shameful.

Stay cool everyone. See you soon. ^_^
