Well, I've just started advertising in Retro Gamer magazine as of issue 50 - so I thought I'd check out the forum and here indeed is a place for me to shamelessly plug site...

Myself and a friend of mine make t-shirts based on retro video games, which can all be viewed at RetroGT.com. We offer free delivery, and all designs available on men's shirts, girl's shirts and hoodies.

Hurrah!

So was it you or your mate that I bought a Speccy t-shirt off at the Memorabilia show last November? I wore it to the the show last weekend!

I can recommend these T-shirts to people. They are far better quality than the usual.

Thanks! Really glad you like it!!

Yes, twas us at Memoribilia in November, and indeed we were there again last weekend... We'll also be doing MCM in... May I think... and Collectormania in Milton Keynes... which is... well... sometime shortly after.

It would have been my good friend and business partner Mr. Lawrence Wong you'd have bought your Speccy t-shirt from. He does the shows while I slave away at a market stall in Brick Lane. ;)

Wow, you guys are all too kind... I'm used getting the 'How dare you attempt to advertise your evil capitalist business on our beloved forum?!' rants... nevermind that we're just two guys trying to scrape a living out of doing something creative...

But I digress... it's really nice to have a positive reaction to our stuff... thanks a lot guys. ;)

I didn't spot anything Philips Videopac / Magnavox Odyssey2 specific, so here are a couple :

http://www.videopac.com/ - shameless link to my own site
http://videopac.nl/forum/index.php - the videopac forum

And if you want to see more :

P.S. Loved this one linked previously, I've been trying to get this info for a while and here it all is in one go! http://www.thegameconsole.com/

My three favorite sites, and a plug for my own

Post by timewarpgamer » Thu Apr 24, 2008 7:29 pm

My favorite retro eras are 8-bit and 16-bit, and the only two sites I find myself checking daily for new content are:

http://www.racketboy.com/
http://www.romhacking.net/
http://www.sega-16.com/

But in general, I find it pretty crazy that there's a total lack of websites that simply focus on the greatest games of the 8/16-bit era. That's why I started http://www.timewarpgamer.com. It's a work in progress, but the basic premise is that you can quickly find lists of the top games for the various consoles, and the site also is relatively unique source for Wii Virtual Console reviews at a glance.

Any feedback on the site is welcome at timewarpgamer@gmail.com.

Thanks,

--Earl
