I've just recovered my senses from my very first visit to EGX at the Birmingham NEC and to say I was blown away would be an understatement.

I've been looking forward to my first visit for a long time and ever since I had been accepted for my press passes i'd been marking the days on my retrogaming calendar!

Let's have a look at all the cool things i'm getting excited about which includes my TOP 5 video games that i'm looking forward to playing and probably being crap at....

As I don my rose tinged spectacles and hook myself up to my freshly filled bottle of nostalgia fluid I take a trip down memory lane to a time when colourful wrestling characters filled my thoughts and events like Summer Slam and Wrestlemania defined my year.

☆ This Is Retrogaming Present & Future ☆ #Retrogaming #GamersUnite

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

Since starting Games Freezer 2 years ago I have seen the landscape of retrogaming change quite considerably in that short space of time and I think it's for the good of retrogaming.
It feels like the status and profile of retro gaming has increased beyond what it was 2 years ago and the retro gaming communities seemed to have swelled to a large online presence.
I can't quite ascertain why exactly but I think it has to do with the following key factors that have contributed to the growing presence of what feels like a fully fledged retrogaming movement.

As the wait for Fallout 4 continues the anticipation heightens i'm grabbing onto anything Fallout 4 related and and pawing over it.

I've just come across this awesome site that let's fiddle around with building a Fallout character from scratch and assigning your character with 'Special' points.
