Hey kids, I've hocked this before, but am keen to get involved in the blogging community. My site is:

http://theotherrandomnamewastaken.blogspot.com/

It's a bit of a pop-culture journal, in theory. In reality, I've been using it as a platform for my love of 2D fighters amongst other games. Join on in, if you're interested see if we can get something going here.

Hey all, my own site on Retro soccer gaming.

http://www.retrobola.com

It has just started off, so it is a work in progress ;) But we aim to patch the games, offering updating teams. Currently have a legends project for ISSD & World Cup Striker. Also looking into netplay with these games.

I ignore SWOS and Kick Off as they are already well known.

I/We do support International Superstar Soccer Deluxe, J.League Excite '96, J.League Dream Stadium '96, World Cup Striker, J.League Prime Goal 3.

And looking into the world of Soccer Management games for the SNES. The one we are likely to choose is Kevin Keegan's Player Manager. But we are finding it difficult to locate a manual. And are still reviewing other games.

Got to pimp ourselves a bit here really haven't I? :lol:
But yeah, Chips (the independant retro games shop) has a Facebook and Twitter now that I run.

http://www.facebook.com/ChipsStockton

http://www.Twitter.com/ChipsStockton

It's more often just general chatter about retro games and goings on than it is about deals and offers, but there is that too, obviously. Got loads of nice photos and that up too. We also try to give a little back to fans too with discounts, prizes and support of outside projects such as MohicanKid's lucky dip and the ZeldaGamesAid charity marathon.

Ahh, shameless self promotion!!

We just started our retro gaming site about a month ago: http://www.thehookshot.com

It keeps things light and entertaining and focuses more on the different aspects of each game/console. Less about game reviews and the history - more about the games themselves! We're definetly trying to build an audience, so check it out!

Ok, self promotion is over :)

I've been holding off "launching" this site on the forum as I've been waiting for it to be just right, but I suspect that time will never come.

So I humbly submit for your consideration - http://www.retrogamesnow.co.uk - a retro games site focused on 80's arcade, console and personal computer games, as well as my mission to build a MAME cabinet, and build a google map of the retro games stores in the UK.

Any feedback will be very welcome, but go easy on me this is my first proper attempt at a website!

I might as well throw my hat in the ring. My own site:
http://www.retrogameage.com/
I update every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday and sometimes everyday of the week if I'm doing a featured week. I've been in a bit of a bubble for the entire year as I stuck to my schedule and I figure it's about time I got out there and interacted with the rest of the retrogaming community. Feel free to leave any feedback as it's much appreciated.

It's called Retro Gaming Life and you can visit it at http://www.retrogaminglife.com/ This blog is mainly about my hobby of retro games (duh!) as well as other interesting bits of information such as ads, findings, and even some reviews and what not. I also update it with emulation news! I hope you can visit and let me know what you think. Also, hmm how do I make my banner also my photo in my sign? I'm sort of new at that ugh. Thanks!!

I've been searching out Retro Gamer mags at local B&Ns here in the states for over a year. Love it. I grew up playing the Commodore 64 and just started my own blog looking back at retro sports games of yesteryear.

High quality NES and SNES Maps made from screen shots

Post by snesmaster » Mon Nov 14, 2011 11:12 pm

Hi, I create maps for various NES and SNES games and run two websites where I post all the maps I have created so far.

I create the maps by taking screen shots of the games and stitching them together in Photoshop. Then I will add in the enemy and items locations. I have mapped out games such as Zelda, Super Mario Bros., Metroid, Super Metroid, multiple Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior games, Chrono Trigger, Marble Madness, Contra and many more.

In addition to the maps I also have sprites available for many of the games. Posters of some of the more popular games are also available.

Let me know what thoughts you have on these sites.

Nice site! Looks like we both went for the Arras blue theme in Wordpress, great format for highlighting retro game graphics.

The custom background works well, I am going to try and find something fitting for my blog.

Keep it up!

In an utterly shamless attempt at increasing my blog readership, I am giving away games for Christmas! Well, I was... I was doing a "Twelve Games of Christmas" thing, and then my internet connection crapped out, which brought that to a bit of a halt. It's back now though, so I'm catching up. And the twelve days of Christmas traditionally starts on Christmas Day anyway, so timing's not that much of an issue.

Anyway, it's mostly Steam-based games I'm giving away, and my blog link is in my signature, so if you fancy your chances (and there aren't many entries...), have a look-see!
