It’s December, so you know what that means…It’s time for our annual Christmas issue again! Usually around Christmas the staff here at RTM try and give our readers a gift of some type. Whether that’s a big issue filled with recommended Christmas buys or a contest for a free Homebrew cartridge on AtariAge, we have tried to do something every year. This year we decided to create an RTM Forum so that everyone (including the staff) could have a place to share information and talk with one another. The new forums went live in late November, and can be found at http://retrogamingtimes.com/forum/YaBB.pl. This is only the beginning of what we hope will be a fun gathering place for retro gamers. It took time to get the whole retro feel going with the forums, so we hope you like it! Feel free and stop by and chat with your fellow members of the RTM community. The topics discussed so far have been interesting, and they will probably only get more interesting as more and more people sign up.
The second announcement that I have to make this month is that we have a new columnist by the name of Rob Luther, one of “The Retro Junkies” over on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/retrogamingjunkies). The Retro Junkies have some great plans for the future, including a PodCast and website, so it’s great to have this up and coming retro duo on board. Judging from his articles this month, he has a ton to offer!
I hope you all have a great Christmas and enjoy this issue of Retrogaming Times Monthly. If you are looking for Christmas gifts, the guys over at Revival Studios (http://www.revival-studios.com/) have lots of new homebrews for various systems to choose from. You can’t go wrong with a new game for a classic system!
