He had better not piledrive our ornament...

As the holiday season grows closer, we’d just like to thank everyone who have helped this website to grow! Over 1,000 views in the site’s first week of existence is pretty darn good in my book! On behalf of Andy, Dan, and Zach, I’d like to extend some deep thanks to anyone who has visited our site over the past week!

We are looking to do some very fun things starting in 2009, and without support from readers like you, we would never be as enthusiastic about the work that we do!

Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
– Justin and the staff of Continue?


Website Construction

December 13, 2008

We have a small list of things to do before we start posting full time on our shiny new webpage, so I figured I’d lay out some of the plans that we have upcoming here on Continue?.

We plan to write on a regular basis, so a list of possible featured article ideas is being kicked around. I already know what I will be writing about, but getting the rest of the authors set-up on WordPress might take a few more days. Once everyone has an account, we’ll be ready to go!

Also, before we post anything, we need to decide what form of license we will be using for the work placed on this site. We will be using a Creative Commons License, so whatever we post here will have full permissions to be distributed – provided you mention us as the original author. We will be deciding which license to apply for over the next two-to-three days.

Finally, we need to make this site look a bit more presentable. An overhead banner and possibly some other image-related updates will be addressed over the weekend.

Look for the first real article to be hitting the site sometime next week (around Wednesday)!

Thanks for reading, and we look forward to making this new project grow!

And so it begins…

Retro gaming in the 21st century.

With the invention of “virtual consoles” and “emulators”, old games can be brought back to life for short periods of time, to be played by today’s casual gamer in their spare time. However, retro games on a current generation system sometimes feels like they were just put there as a novelty.

Our goal is to bring back to life the feeling you got when you opened up your cardboard NES box, and fumbled around with paper packaging, only to eventually pry your grey cartridge out of it’s safe wrapping and jam it into your Nintendo. We want to relive those glory days, where the reset button was actually used to get a game to work and where games were simple yet fun.

Continue? is dedicated towards replaying the games of the 1980’s and 1990’s, and having fun poking fun at them in the process. This online magazine will have a variety of writers and will review a large span of games. If we don’t review a game you love, then why don’t you? We are currently looking for contributing writers who share the same love of retro games as we do! Feel free to contact us and pitch some stories, and we’d love to have you add them!

Thank you for reading! We are happy you will be starting our journey with us!
