[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 24/03/19


Hello guys,

Apparently the drought in the second hand market of games is far from over since I’m not finding a single good game at a decent price. That’s the reason why I’ve dedicated most of my time to play games and reading my mags. I’ve finally almost completed Retro Gamer #187 but instead of playing (and complete) the games I still need to beat (Obitus and Maniac Mansion above all) my addiction to EUIV has come back. After finishing a long campaign with Italy I’ve started another one with Lithuania. The first century is not so problematic but now that I’ve come in contact with western countries I have to face their superior military power so I have to be extra careful before doing something that could disgregate my big country.

In the meantime I’m waiting for next weekend when I’ll throw myself in a long Cuphead session with my gf with the only target to complete the game. We only have two bosses to beat, King Dice and the Devil and we’re finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The last 5 bosses (due to our always improving skills) have been strangely easy to defeat but now the time has come to test if we’re tough enough to beat the game.

Even because a big update is coming on April 16th…
