[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 22/07/18

Hello guys,

No, I’m not dead. And I’m resurrectin step by step every single piece of this blog. I’ve had some troubled times in the last months and I really haven’t got time and energies to read, write and even think about anything that wasn’t my private life. Now the situation has changed a bit and with some efforts I’m trying to catch up with all my projects and to schedule my future, beginning with a long travel I’m planning to do in 2019, money permitting.

As you may imagine I haven’t played nor read anything so everything is more or less at the same point I’ve left it in May; I’ve barely finished issue #179 of Retro Gamer that was laying on my nightstand from three months and I’ve finally begun #180. Finally I won’t go again to sleep with Pac-Man watching me from the cover of the mag.

Rwgarding the projects from the near future gamning-wise I’ve just put on sale on eBay some games I have in more than one copy so I can make some money to invest in new games or consoles. Even though my finances have been dramatically shrinked in June I’m trying to save some cash for a huge retro electronics fair that will be held in September in northern Italy. It will be a whole day of shopping for me, from dawn till dusk and I really hope to make some good deal.

Since I’ve lost the last two months of posts and news I will be glad if you want to tell me your progress, if there’s something new, if you’ve bought some good games or if something important happened in your life. I trust I will be more dynamic in the next weeks…
