[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 10/03/19


Hello guys,

I’ve finally spent one week of holiday and, despite the spring has almost arrived with temperatures around 20°C that invited me to go outside, I had a lot of time to play games and read.

I’ve almost completed my campaign on Europa Universalis IV. These last years are super difficult because I engaged wars with all of my neighbors (ALL Europe) that now hate me and can’t wait to battle against me. Luckily enough I have a great army but from now on my strategy will be pure defensive. I’m also slowly catching up with the Retro Gamer I have to read: I still have three mags left but I’m spending more time reading it so before summer (I hope!) I will clear my backlog. I’ve just renewd my subscription so I’m in for other 13 mags until next summer 🙂

Unofortunately there were no interesting games out there to buy this week and the only good news about it is that I saved some money for the future when I hope the people I’m following will be selling something good to fill my collection. Next week some auctions I’m watching will be over and I trust I can get some NES games I still don’t own. I still have room enough for three cartridges on the NES shelf so if I happen to buy more games (and I hope so) I’ll be moving some stuff elsewhere. I mean, now I have all the space I want!
