RetroFuel

Retro Gaming Retro Gaming news and memories are 'RetroFuel' to us. The fuel to excite, play, share and report on all our yesteryear of gaming. Retro is back and growing in strength so expect new articles, Let's Play's, Kickstarters and new accessories as this massive cult revisit's the mainstream world. This is our section on GaminGuys to celebrate all our past gaming that led us to modern games. Our favourite platforms and games for each of these. It also includes our experiences with family or at expo's dedicated to retro-gaming.

From the retro Gameboy to the Advance and from retro Atari to the SNES and all the memories and moments of hilarity or video's we captured, this is where we share those days of old.

There are many retro gaming crowd-funding campaigns currently operating on the scene. We will also highlight the best ones as we see fit to help the organisers achieve funding and to be informative. If you love retro gaming news, you can help mould this site to fit the type of content that interests you, by reading, commenting and contributing to all that is RETRO. If there is more that you want to see, let us know.

PlayExpo 2017 Weekend

PlayExpo 2017 Weekend Our 6th year at PlayExpo Manchester and what a blast! There really is no soaking it all in when you go to an event like this, that has such a variety of stuff.

My Top 5 Favourite Retro-Gaming Consoles Ever For Real

My Top 5 Favourite Retro-Gaming Consoles Ever For Real

These are My Top 5 Favourite Retro-Gaming Consoles. Sometimes I look on YouTube and see channels reeling off top 5 this, top 10 that and know full well that’s it’s total bait and a way to get conversations going and arguments started. When I consider my top 5 consoles, I prefer a much more relaxed and sombre affair, with only a relatively brief amount of reasoning involved, simplistic ... »

A Piece Of The Pi

Several months ago, an Indigogo campaign was launched, promising ‘retro-gaming simplified’ ‘4K graphics’ and ‘custom OS firmware’ and it was all a lie that totalled over $600,000 and ended up being RetrOrangePi on a stolen (edited) operating system. Due to the planning put into the layout of the system, users will have to download the operating system themselves... »

Are We Paying For Nintendo Plastic?

Something came to me the other day… If the NES Classic Mini plays SNES games, is the upcoming September 28-29th release of the SNES Classic Mini literally just the Mini NES unit rebranded and rewrapped in a different plastic shell and different software? If so, would we literally be paying £30 more for 2 SNES controllers costing £1.26 each to manufacture (bearing in mind one controller came ... »

WWF Wrestlemania Challenge NES Review

There is something natural and organic about wrestling games over the years. Starting off with the very most basic Pro Wrestling (which has been reviewed here), the games have developed into multi-faceted beasts with such advanced complex controls and game modes that would render the most fussy of wrestling gamers salivating with choice. It wasn’t always like this though, for professional wrestlin... »

The funniest world of mario

World Of Mario

World Of Mario Back in the days of the dinosaur well 1981, some bright spark decided to make a game called Donkey Kong and in it featured a little guy that climbed platforms and occasionally wielded a hammer that equalled his own height which only makes sense in the gaming realm. Chasing his true love in a game that was a complete rip-off of the 1933 film ‘King Kong’, this little itali... »

The Genius Of Codemasters

The Genius Of Codemasters

The Genius Of Codemasters If you look at the simplest of mass produced electronics and I do mean the simplest, then just take a minute to look at the board design, like myself, you may wonder ‘how the hell did they do that?’. Not to put myself down but some of us talk the talk and some of us walk the walk and guess I’m the one talking right now so enough said. Codemasters have al... »

Introducing the Retro-Engine Sigma

Introducing the Retro-Engine Sigma

Introducing the Retro-Engine Sigma   Things move on, we at GG accept that. It doesn’t mean anything is out of fashion at all, it simply means there are other options. I for one, still love the original Xbox for Coinops just because it’s cheap as chips and I own 7 of them and also bought the hard-drives to upgrade them off standard up to monster arcade classic machines. There is a ... »
