RetroMacro (6/18/07)

RetroMacro - June 18, 2007I’m going to try out a little feature I’m calling the RetroMacro.  Consider it a quiz — a test of whether you’re a truly hardcore retro gamer!  The way it works is simple.  I post a picture and you figure out what it is.  The catch is that they’re super close-up macro shots, showing familiar objects in not-so-familiar ways.  Think you’ve got what it takes?  Have a look at the picture to the left and give it your best shot.  (Feel free to post a comment, if you think you got it!)  The answer, and the next picture, will be posted in the near future…

Update: Click the picture for a hint!

Update 2: Check after the break and scroll down for the solution…

    Hey Tim. I just discovered your site and it looks very promising. Although I don’t agree with your philosphy on scores (I’m a traditional 1-10 guy myself) I do agree with your take that too many review(er)s are cut and dry with a lack of a “voice” or personality. Although my reviews are long enough to be novels, I try my best to give each of my reviews a refreshing feel, something different from 100s of reviews you’d find elsewhere.

    Anyway, keep it up, site looks very promising. I’ll add it to my LINKS section.

    Thanks for the good words! And don’t worry, there’s plenty of room on the internet for different review styles. I just need to work on developing my voice in short posts.

    It’s always good to see more Saturn fans, too. I plan on giving it a lot of coverage!

    (Hmm… Hint on the RetroMacro: Think older than the Saturn, but newer than the NES… Okay, maybe that wasn’t much help!)
