☆ Retrogaming Music To My Ears ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

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

Video Game music is an often overlooked or under estimated element to a video game.
 
Imagine Gameboy Tetris with another soundtrack! It just wouldn't be Tetris! 
(would it?)
 
I like to think the video game and the music go hand in hand in order to deliver the game experience.

☆ The Alcatraz Barcade Dream ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite @AlcatrazLondon

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

We've all had the dream of opening up our very own Barcade haven't we?

I've always felt that there are definitely not enough great barcades in London and there is a definite gap in the market for a top Barcade like the Brooklyn Barcade to be opened in London.

I have been in contact with a guy called Marcus Gordon who is looking to make that dream a reality by opening Alcatraz Bar in London.

Alcatraz Bar is currently trying to get funding to open a retro/current console gaming bar in London, with a unique flavour........

SEGA, Megadrive, Retrogaming

Us Retrogaming folk generally hark back to the days of SEGA vs NINTENDO in the console wars era of the 90's or the glory years of Atari and it's always great to reminisce on those days of trailblazing video games when things seemed much simpler.

retrogaming, arcade

I'm always looking for inspiration to start building my very own arcade machine and believe me I have found lots of inspiration but my lack of expertise always seems to let me down.

I'd love to create my own arcade machine BUT I want tit to look good and play well. Something shoddy would make me sad.......

Then recently I stumbled across a really cool project by Dean Taylor called "Super Pantendo"

This has reignited my desire to at least complete one arcade project in my lifetime!

Read Dean's story and see if it inspires YOU like it did ME.......

What Is A Wow Moment In Video Games terms?

For me it's been the moment when I've started to play a new game and then wham! Something happens that you didn't think was possible until you just witnessed it. 

These kind of moments are few and far between but I am going to attempt to share with you my 10 WOW moments that will stick with me forever, when a video game took my breath away (for various reason)

I flicked my iPod to shuffle and then out of the blue Biggy Smalls sang to me…….
His iconic line from "Juicy" got me reminiscing ,as I generally do, and I began to think about all my favourite tunes over the years that featured a reference to video game.
