My kind of gaming ‘zine!
Along side the arrival of my Dragon Age II yesterday I was also very pleased to have received the first issue of Scroll. Scroll is probably best described as a video game ‘fanzine’ (though the author would sooner have you refer to it as a ‘midzine’, due to its smaller page count and professional-styled layouts) with a focus more on Retro gaming. That doesn’t mean it is all ‘old-news’. Articles on the recent Dreamcast Collection and Pac-man Battle Royal shows that…wait a second, that is just Retro gaming with brought in with a present day veneer!
As a long time gamer I appreciate the exploration of retro-gaming and the short-form articles. It reminds me of my personal blog which you are reading at this very moment. The magazine is brought to you by 1up and Retronauts alum, Ray Barnholt. I for one enjoyed Ray’s contributions in the past and am glad he has found another venue to express his gaming world view.
So I suggest you give Scroll a chance. The ‘zine is self-published, 40 pages with no ads and is beautifully laid out. I am looking forward to see what Ray will have for us next time! Click on the link below if you would like more information, r how you can purchase this unique magazine.
