  1. Ah, it’s always good when you get nominated for something and others recognize how awesome you are! And it’s true, your blog is a true joy to read! :)

    As to #3 about yourself, Castlevania is one of my favorite series as well. I did like Lords of Shadow, although I am not 100% sold on the need to do a parallel universe when there were still a few tales to tell within the original one! X_X

    • oh! I should have nominated you girl ^_^ Sorry about that!
      I just love how Castlevania games are always so mysterious, cleverly made and have AWESOME music :D I actually haven’t gotten around to trying Lords of Shadow yet, I have it, but I’ve just had so many other retro games to go through first haha ^^

      • No problem, LOL!

        Yep, I know how you feel. Although my favorite entries into the series are probably CV3: Dracula’s Curse and Dracula X, I also really liked the style of game posed by Symphony of the Night and all the games that followed. The music was always so awesome (even in iffy games like CV64) and the story was also pretty interesting.

        Lords of Shadow presents an interesting story, but it’s a very new direction for them to go, LOL.

      • I really like the Metroidvania style of the Symphony of the Night and GBA Castlevania games as well, but the previous Castlevania games are more challenging ^^
        I should take some time to try Lords of Shadow! Now I’m intrigued :D

  2. Congrats! You deserve many awards.
    I love your blog and I love your video game collection! You’re one of my favorite stops on the Internet.
    I’m also getting into RetroCollect but I can’t add any of my collections yet :( I’ll just have to wait a wee bit more.
    And thanks for the mention :)
    I’m going to read more about your award.

  3. Well, wow and that’s awesome. And Thanks for the nomination as well. I rarely “win” anything, as I don’t try to anymore (OK, I’m lazy!). I also get some new blogs to pore over (but now I really do need a time machine so I can do all that extra reading!)


  4. Awwwww… shucks, I feel so honoured! Thank you very much :) x
    Nominated in such good company too. I’ll be sure to check out those that I didn’t already know.
    I love your site, very envious of your collection, keep up the good work.

    • Thanks, and you’re welcome ^_^ You’re site deserves to get acknowledged :D I’m gonna hang out there even more now that I have my C64 and so many games in the post! Can’t wait to see if it will work! :D

  5. Congratulations on your nomination.
    I played the keyboard for a while but I eventually decided it was an unnatural activity, lol. But I am very good at hammering C-F-G chords :D That’s 75% of all songs ;)
    If you want an NHL 95 to practice, I have it in my childhood collection. :P

    • Thank you ^_^
      Haha true! I play mainly classical stuff though, or compose my own :D so no C-F-G chords there ;D
      I have the NHL games too now.. I don’t play them though, it brings back too many memories >__<

      • One of the games I sent you now has great music (for a musician to appreciate). It was composed by renowned chiptune composer Alberto Gonzalez.

      • Ooh! can’t wait ^_^ Which one is it? According to wikipedia Alberto Gonzalez has mainly made music for the Asterix and Smurf games.. don’t remember buying that..
