The Retrogaming Times
« on: November 04, 2016, 01:49:53 AM »

I just learned of this online retro gaming newsletter and wanted to share it here: The Retrogaming Times! The Retrogaming Times is the furtherance of Retrogaming Times and Retrogaming Times Monthly, two of the longest running retrogaming newsletters of all time.  This newsletter is entirely hobbyist driven and content created by retro fans.  It even welcomes contributions from readers.  Be sure to check out the site for their latest issue and for the back issues.  The first issue was released in March 2016. 

Check out The Retro Gaming Times here:  http://www.classicplastic.net/trt/

It is!  I used to read Retrogaming Times Monthly but it just stopped happening.  It's cool to see that it has a legacy that continues.  I printed all of these as PDF files (from the web page) to read on my tablet.  :)

I must have missed this so far!
Love the basic layout. The US perspective on classic gaming is always intriguing as it was so different to the UK.
I read the P-51 Mustang article. What a heartwarming story.
A lot more to read but I'm hooked
