Added the missing scans onto the end of my Konami product catalogue post. Nothing overly-exciting but it didn't feel complete otherwise...

Also wrote an article on the decline of Sonic where I've tried to look into the subject in a bit more depth. Not sure if I actually managed to make any point in the end but hey, I tried to do something constructive. Link below for this one if anybody is interested :)

Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

3 posts in one day :shock: :oops:

All stuff I had gradually typed up though so it was just a quick copy and paste job.

A look at a Mai Shiranui figure I bought a while ago:

Some scans from Official Nintendo Magazine that show a few unreleased games from the early days of Wii/DS:

Finally, a short review of the diabolical Tekken movie:

Have put up some pics of a number of early 80s game adverts from comic books I have. Loads to get through, so this is just part one!

Sorry for the bump, but my blog (which is a part of the One A Day blogging Project, which has you post something every day of 2011) gets its 200th post today. Every entry so far has looked at a retro title and whether it holds up today.

Today's entry focuses on Qwak, and features a mini interview with the game's creator Jamie Woodhouse. Sadly not every game I revisit has a interview, but I thought this specific post might be of interest to some people...
