Welcome to the home of the Retro Junkies Network!

Atari Man News!!!

Ah yes, freshly baked Atari Man news, straight from the oven. It’s almost as fresh as that muffin wearing glasses. I heard it went to college. That’s one smart muffin (the cookie was not available for this news byte..I did the best I could)

I’ve discussed some of these things on the Facebook page, but for further clarification..

-I am running a sale on my business page, Nick D’s Video Game Vault until Saturday. Check the page for further details.

-I have decided to return to RTM. I don’t think I’ll be doing quite as much as I have in the best, but you never know.

I also wanted to say thank you, to everyone who has been so supportive with everything going on with my Dad right now. It means a lot to know people I barely know care so much.

Now then, be sure that when you need to study for an important test, don’t ask me, ask the muffin.

Retro gaming is one of the most nostalgic things for most of the people born in the 70s or 80s. Retrojukies is a website designed for us, retro game lovers. There are still companies that make 8-bit retro games that run on emulators that can be installed on modern devices (pc, tablets, smartphones).

A couple of years ago we saw a group of enthusiastic people that were making new arcades, with minor upgrades but with the same design. They were with same controllers, the screen was LCD, and the hardware was from a modern device, but with an emulator, tweaked to work like a charm.

Last year we heard from a software company that successfully made retro slots games. They said that their game could be installed on existing slot machines and the first target was the best casino in Las Vegas and until the end of the year they are planning to implement it in other USA casino on the east coast, probably in New Jersey.

There are a ton of software developers that work on emulator improvements and making changes, so they can be compatible with many gadgets. If there is any big news in the near future about retro gaming, you will find it here on the best retro network.
