It looks great!

If you want, I can get demos to some games you review.

Just a suggestion.

Hey man thanks!
As for the demos, I wouldn't want to put you through that work. Also as they can become a bandwidth issue. What I plan on doing is having an external links location on the review page of each game where you can link to sites that have the cheat codes for the game, or other things like that.

well, if you are referring to the site creation that I am sad to say that I probably don't need much help if any at all in that.

OR

If you mean after the site launch as in writing reviews or anything of that manner then totally! the staff will be open to anyone and everyone to try out as a review writer. Of course we don't want any one review gigs.

Seeing I play or have played every NES, SNES, SEGA, NEO GEO, and other console games that are all that is retro, would you care for a retro reviewer? I don't have the money and resources to keep up with next gen games at the moment. Although I am trying my best to update lol. Also, I love gadgets so if you wanted a gadget reviewer I could provide that.

I actually thought it would be hardest to find a retro game reviewer :)

If you can successfully make a post following the posting tutorial you will be welcome onto the retro console review team!

but of course that try out stuff will be for later.  :)

also I don't know about gadget, I really want to keep it simple and for video games only.

Also I want to know what everything thinks about this:

Should there be game previews? So far all we were talking about it game reviews. I think previews could actually be beneficial because once the game is actually released we could link to the review from the preview.

Alright I am game. Are there anything in specific you will be looking for in a review? Are there (will there) be any sort of criteria to what the reviews will have to encompass? Will there be length limitations? Also, will there be a scoring system?

the answer to pretty much everything you just said, yes.

I want it structured just because I don't want everyone having their own review style. I'm sure anyone can adapt to the structure, its VERY simple, but keeps some structure to the site.

I think he meant a scoring system like what Gamespot does. Mini awards could be placed in the review as well like "A lot for your money" or "Cute, but yet can appeal to adults". Bad awards can be given as well like "Recycled" for games sequals that just repeat what the first one did. Just a suggestion as always.

I do have a question, would it be relative to the scoring system, if I were to score the retro games, (NES, SNES, SEGA), and so on, relative to the other games on there respective consoles? Say if I were comparing Mario Bros. 3 to the rest of the games on the console, I would give it a higher graphics score then most, but if I were comparing it to games on all consoles I would have to give it a small score. What would you like me to do.

actually, thanks for the reminder. The scoring system has changed. :o

no longer numbers, but it will be text based. "graphics: bad, good ect.."

Close to answering lol, I guess what I mean is, If I were to say compare Mario 3 to like any other NES game, I would say it has better graphics then most other NES games, so I would say the graphics are "Good" But If I were to compare  Mario 3 to games of this generation, I would have to classify the graphics as "Bad" Do you see what I mean. Which would you rather me do, compare the retro games, to other retro games, or compare them to, all games in general.

then I'd rather not. I mean include it in your review by all means, but when you go to the end it will be a simple "graphics: bad"
