The original RetroBlast site grew from a personal journal of my adventures in building a MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulation) arcade game, and eventually became a site for reviews and news about anything and everything arcade related. The site’s full archives can still be viewed at retroblast.arcadecontrols.com.
The new, born-from-the-ashes site is my personal blog, where I will post tidbits of news, reviews, and whatever random thoughts I feel like sharing. It’s going to be a much more personal journey this time around, so don’t expect a full smattering of reviews of the latest arcade gadgets and gizmos. I’m not saying I won’t be posting a review here and there, but it’s not the site’s mission this time around.
I’ll also be covering the modern gaming scene, especially new gaming technologies for the home game room, mobile gaming, and more. Old, new…it’s all good!
