Retro Garden now has a Twitter account! For those of you who don’t know, Twitter is a microblogging service that allows you to network with people, as well as provide insights in whatever you’re interested in. In my case, games. So if you want to see what links I look at, and what I think about old (and current games). My username is http://www.twitter.com/retrogarden, feel free to follow me and message me yours so I can follow you!
Apologies for the lack of update, that will be coming tomorrow. In the meantime, why not take a look at our latest sponsor. It’ll get me writing quicker, I guarentee you that much!
