GameTrailers shuts down after 13 years

Before gaming web sites, magazines were the first to go. But, some times Internet sites do become defunct like 1UP or GameSpy. Yesterday, the Twitter account announced that February 8, 2016 would be its last day.

The founder and voice of the site Brandon Jones had a similar tweet. GameTrailers was a go to for trailer releases at first, but eventually grew into its own with notable staff members, its own community and shows from famous industry members like Geoff Keighley and Michael Pachter.



Finding the best CRT display …

Why would you want an old tube television? For the best retrogaming experience of course! If you still have one, you’re probably used to playing your old games and consoles on it already. But, if you want to recreate the magic of that era, this one article will most certainly help you while showing some of the many differences between HD displays and the SD displays of yesterday.

Sega Mega Drive shipment found hidden away for decades

What’s it like finding unopened video game products in a warehouse? It has to be one of the most invigorating feelings in the world!

From the RetroCollect piece:

This recent find by a member of the Sega Galaxy Board has seen four Sega shipping boxes taken home containing 20 unused and unopened PAL-Asian Mega Drive II consoles along with multiple copies of 18 different 16-bit classics – including Sonic The Hedgehog 2 and Streets of Rage 2. Luckily enough for us, this new owner of this buried treasure has made it clear that he doesn’t have enough room or need for such vast quantities of Sega’s past and has begun selling the spares online. Those interested in getting their hands on a pristine Sega Mega Drive II will need to set aside 70 Euros, whilst the majority of untouched games will set you back 10 Euros a piece.

Surely there has to more consoles and games yet undiscovered in even weirder places …
