How about Lyria Exchange for finding video games that are trending on eBay?

My brother and I are on a mission to do a 15+ minute play through of every US NES game ever made, on the actual hardware - not emulated. We condense each one into a ~5 minute video and we'd love for you to come along with us on the ride. New ones come out each Thursday.

I've created a little site for game reviews, videogame movie reviews, articles and a blog. Mostly retro stuff, but with some modern games getting covered:

http://www.caveofmonsters.com/

The site is still very young, and I haven't had a chance to get loads of content onto it yet, but I'm working on it! It's very much a work in progress as I learn about web design, but I'm already kind of addicted...

Still working with much enthusiasm on my book project. Blog posts are less frequent than before through necessity, but here's one: Sneak Preview (almost)

Greetings Everyone!

This is a game that has been going strong online for over 13 years! It is a PC Space-based Multiplayer, 3rd person game with RTS elements featuring direct ship control. Very underated, a true diamond in the rough.

Hi all, just joined today and hope to post on here as often as possible. I've been lurking about on here for quite a while so I can do research for my website that sells all types of retro related stuff (consoles, computers, games, records, films etc).

Here are some nice/cool retrogaming blogs, some of which deserve more feedback - so that their authors won't give up on them?

Anyone here had much experience at running an online retro gaming radio station?

I've got a basic one based on the Super Famicom / Snes up and running (icecast with auto dj at the moment)
I decided to give it a go as I like to listen to SFC tunes in the car, but apart from adding them all to my ipod, there was no radio station that fitted the bill (I do listen to radio sega from time to time)

I Have about a gig of tunes on there so far and thats about 12 hours worth of listening (I've got 20gig hosting space so there's loads to play with)

I'm not an html coder or anything so it's all joomla and plugins so far (my icecast host is making me free iphone and android apps though)

I'm really looking for any tips, advice etc as to whats the best way to go with these types of sites. Also what kind of players etc people use when listening to stations.
There is no ads or anything on the stream and I wont ever be adding them, so just non-stop tunes.

The website is http://www.superfamicomradio.co.uk

Thanks

I stumbled onto the Retrospec website tonight, having not been there for years. I've just spent the last half hour playing a great Lunar Jetman remake :D

Retroremakes was another fave that seems to be long dead.

Since this thread is rather aged, are there any similar sites currently around with a focus on retrogames and remakes? RGCD is good but infrequent, I want something I can pop into once or twice a week at least to see what's new.

I usually watch the Burnt Gamers twitch feed, solely because they stream one of my all time favs, Red Alert 2 from time to time: http://www.twitch.tv/burntgamers/profile
LFGdating | Goldeneye, Red Alert and KOTOR are probably my Top 3 of all-time.
