[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 19/02/17


Hello guys!

This week my consoles & games collection has improved, since a new member joined the party, the Atari 2600 Dart Vader I purchased last weekend.
I passed this week watching it, and smiling at him, like it were a new member of the family. And as it happens when a family grow bigger now there’s a space issue. I don’t have so many consoles and games but I would like to put them in plain view in my living room. The problem is the terrible lack of space available and the fact that pobably I will have to move to another apartment during this summer. I hope it will be a bigger house because I definitely need some space for my babies 🙂

I even found some time to try to beat Calstlevania but the problem is that I’m stuck at the 12th level, trying to defeat Frankenstein and his bastard hunckbacked monkey.

    The cover story of this issue is dedicated to Chase H.Q. but I really enjoyed reading the piece about the legacy of Metroid! Having a whole day without any kind of commitment it made possible for me to read a big part of the mag. Usually to read that much I take like 2 weeks…

    Status: 2% completed, on hold

PLANS

Now that I’ve found an atari 2600 the hunt is open to find some good deals on games lot. The title I’m missing the most is Pitfall. It’s easy to find for sure, but I’ve seen it’s retailed at 30£. I hope I could find a better price, or find it together with other games…
