Retro Gamer turns 100! The 100th issue of Retro Gamer was on the shelves at my Barns & Noble so I just had to get a copy. I wasn't there when Retro Gamer began years ago, but I did start reading the mag in early 2011 and I've loved it ever since. Retro Gamer Load 100 also came with a reprint of Retro Gamer Load One, the very first issue of Retro Gamer. How many gaming magazines have done something like that to commemorate such an occasion? I'm actually way behind on my issues of Retro Gamer. I have lots of back issues from 2011 leading up to 2012 that I haven't even read yet. I've already got a massive gaming backlog. I don't need a backlog for gaming mags.
Also picked up the new issue of Nintendo Power and who is gracing the cover? Why it's that lovable due of Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit. I still haven't played my copy of Epic Mickey but it's nice to hear it is getting a sequel in Epic Mickey: The Power of Two. The 3DS game Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion is looking drop dead gorgeous and is a wonderful showcase for 2D graphics on the 3DS. Like Retro Gamer, I'm also behind on back issues of Nintendo Power but only by three months, and I tend to read through Nintendo Power issues a lot faster than Retro Gamer so catching up should be no problem.
