December 3rd seems to be an important date for game history. In 1979, the Intellivision game console was launched; in 1994, the first Sony PlayStation launched.

It wouldn’t be here if not for you the readers, so I wanted to offer up my heartfelt thanks to all of you – whether you just read the site regularly, read & comment, share tips, share opinions on what is written, etc. We’ll keep the work up, just as long as someone wants to read or watch. You can watch the latest stuff on YouTube, where we’re about to hit 7,300 subs (or there is Bitchute, which I’ve been doing just in case things go haywire over at YT with the big changes coming next week).
