RetroMacro (3/13/08)

RetroMacro (3/13/08)It seems like I haven’t been posting much more than the games I’ve recently bought, and that can’t be too interesting (though hopefully the impressions are at least a little interesting, albeit short).  Since it’s been a good six months, I figured it’s time for another RetroMacro!  So here you go… Of course, click the pic for a bigger version and a fairly cryptic hint.  And since it’s been a while, or if you’re new to the site, a RetroMacro is a zoomed in/cropped shot of something gaming related.  It’s something you might be familiar with, but aren’t used to seeing in this perspective.  Think you know what it is?  Post your guess to the comments! (Tip: Post your comment as a reply to this post, not to the image.)

RetroMacro (9/7/07)Alright, it’s been a while since we’ve done a RetroMacro, so how about a new one?  Take a gander at the picture to your left and see if you can figure out what it is… I’ll give you a hint.  It’s a controller!  What?  That didn’t help much?  Well, sorry, I’m not going to give it away completely.  That wouldn’t be any fun at all, would it?  You have to figure out what system it is on your own.  As usual, there’s a bit more of a hint if you click the picture.  This one shouldn’t be too hard, though.  I hope.  Leave a comment if you think you got it!

RetroMacro (7/18/07)I’m heading out tomorrow for a long weekend of camping and celebrating my birthday (25 on the 20th… Can I start complaining about feeling old yet?), so while I’m out enjoying nature, I’ll leave you with a new RetroMacro to ponder.

If you’re not the observant type, this is a power button. (Duh.) But the power button to what system?  That’s the question!  Click the picture for a bigger version and a little bit of a hint!  As always, feel free to leave a comment if you think you got it.

Now it’s time for me to go pretend to be the outdoorsy type…

RetroMacro (6/26/07)Alright, I think last week’s RetroMacro has been up long enough, so it’s time for the answer and a new one.  For the solution to last week’s, I’ve updated the post so check it out!

As for the new one, it’s right off to your left.  I tried to make this one a little easier, but again, you can click it for a bigger version and a hint.  Think you figured it out?  Take a guess in the comments!

Update: Check after the break for the answer!

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…
