A rollercoaster of a year

Post by mattyg » Fri Dec 25, 2009 1:37 am

Well its christmas day and I am sitting at work playing halleys war on the game gear and thinking of family and you guys! It certainly has not been a great year for many of us but thankfully we are all still here ! I would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for your ongoing support and friendships - I am proud of our little community. On a more positive note I have been in regular contact with the producers of the tv show good game and this has resulted in me being asked to be filmed for an interview at my home next month ! Also my retro game market stall has been successful enough for my business partner and I to seriously consider a move to a bricks and mortar location! So I wish you all a 3do christmas and a gaming new year !

Wow mate! It's good to have you here. (And all of you!)

I thought Australians had BBQs on Christmas day, just to prove the point ;)

You're going to be on TV? mention 3DO :)

Happy Christmas matey!

Yeah its not looking too bad - Rob and Michelle who started the ball rolling have put together a great little stall that covers the quirkiness of US and Japanese cultures. On the US side of things you'll find comics , horror , sci fi clothing and body jewellry - on the Japanese side - you'll find manga , anime , figurines and trading cards - add to this gaming and posters and its a certainly a bit of an East meets West mish mash - but it works!
Everything from Barack Obama bobble heads and poseable Freddy Krugers to Deathnote figurines and manga art. DC to Marvel , Nintendo to Atari , Star Trek to Space Battleship Yamato - its all here folks ! I work there for nothing on Saturdays (it only opens weekends) and keep my cut of what I sell - all that gaming stuff is by me - including the stuffed Bowsers and the game and watches!
