[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 18/08/19


Hello guys,

This week is usually in Italy a week of holidays and BBQ with friends. Ok, I had no holidays because I worked all the week (italians probably won’t understand how this is frustrating, especially a 13-hours shift on August 15th) but al least I had my BBQ. Yesterday night huge evening BBQ with tons of meat, a river of red wine, sangria and – surprise – homemade donuts made by my gf and I even willed with cream and nutella. As you can imagine my density is approaching that of a neutron star.

It has been maily a week of reading, since as always the summer drought of games is still lasting. There are no markets on the horizon and no particular offers, so aside from last minute surprises, I’ll stuck with my 600-and-so games. Having transformed the blog in a bilingual one has given it new life since I write more posts and quicker than before and I learn new way of sayings I didn’t knoe before. More [Review]s are coming and new plans for 2020 for a successor to [2019 with DOS games] column are almost ready. Actually they’re 3-years plans (as alwaus I bite more than I can chew) but juicy things are coming!


Ciao a tutti!

La settimana di ferragosto ovviamente è una settimana di ferie e barbecue con gli amici. Ok, le ferie saltano perchè a ferragosto ho lavorato (…), ma almeno il barbecue non salta. Ieri sera grossa gligliatona serale, carne a profusione, vino, sangria e sorpresona, bomboloni fatti da me e dalla mia morosa,. vuoti e ripieni di crema o nutella. Come potrete be immaginare la mia densità sta ransentando quella di una stella a neutroni.

E’ stata una settimana più che altro di lettura, visto che come al solito la segga estiva di giochi si protrae. Non ci sono mercatini all’orizzonte nè particolari offerte, quindi a meno di sorprese dell’ultim’ora rimarrò sui miei seicento-e-rotti giochi. Aver trasformato il blog in uno bilingue gli ha dato nuova linfa perchè scrivo articoli più speditamente e in numero maggiore e imparo nuovi modi di dire che non conoscevo. Sono in arrivo molte più [Review] che in passato e sono già pronti i primi piani per il 2020 affinchè la rubrica [2019 with DOS games] abbia un seguito. Sono in effetti piani triennali (come al solito faccio sempre il passo più lungo della gamba) e si preannunciano ricchi ri roba buona!

    Piano triennale?!? Complimenti, io vado dove mi porta la tastiera, incapace di un piano nemmeno settimanale. 👍

      È quello che infatti faccio di solito, navigare a vista. Ma su alcuni progetti riesco a spingermi un po oltre…
