Football Management Simulations have been an obsession of mine since I was first introduced to Football Manager 2 on the Amstrad CPC.
Ever since that moment I have searched for the perfect footy manager sim.

A guy called Dallas walks into a Tupperware auction and then walks away with a piece retrogaming history (or so the story goes)

Dallas was in the right place at the right time when he visited an injection mold auction which consisted mainly of tupperware molds and then up popped the beautiful nugget that Dallas just had to bid for..............

As I sit here writing this article my head is still spinning from the sheer amount of great games that I got to play at EGX REZZED!

The sheer quality of the games was mind blowing and I had an awesome time trying my hand at some of these great titles aswell as watching others play some of the latest releases.

If you've never been to an EGX event before I would highly recommend it.

Last Sunday I had a friend and his wife over for lunch 
(not very Retrogaming I hear you cry)
 
Whilst we were chatting I said to him….."Fancy a game of Super Mario Kart?"
 
When I explained to him that we'd be playing the original SNES Super Mario Kart on the Wii his mind imploded and his face lit up like an 8 year old at Christmas!

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Since my first post (read it here) about making a video games cabinet I have been mulling over ideas constantly for the last two weeks.
I want to make sure that ,before I build this beauty, I am fully prepared for what needs to be done and how I'm going to build it.
More importantly I need to know WHAT I am going to build!!
