Here's why you should be reading Retrocade Magazine:
Retrocade Magazine (aka R'cade Mag) is a niche magazine
that focuses on what people consider to be truly classic: from the origins of video gaming up until the mid 1980s. We will cover everything from Tennis For Two up to the NES and will be the only classic gaming magazine out today to do so. Why is that special? Because you will not be reading a magazine that is watered down and spread thin
through many generations of arcade and console games.
R'cade Mag is the only classic gaming magazine out today that has comprehensive classic gaming live tournament coverage
with final scores, photographs and interviews.
R'cade Mag is the only classic gaming magazine today to offer online electronic scoreboards and tournaments for forum members
and subsequently publishes all of those scores. All three tournaments
on the R'cade Mag forums thus far have been a huge success
R'cade Mag is the only classic gaming magazine out today that offers free advertising to arcades
. As a matter of fact, all the advertising
found in the digital edition of R'cade Mag's premiere issue was given away for free
R'cade Mag is the first magazine
to review two hot new home brews: Moon Cresta (7800) & Vector Pilot (Vectrex).
