Reminder: Mana Bar opens this Saturday

We’ve mentioned it before, but it’s worth a quick reminder to our Brisbane readers that the Mana Bar opens this weekend.

Sadly, there won’t be much in the way of retro or indie gaming to be had… Co-owner Yug recently told Stewie Sutherland of AltMagOnline “We will be exclusively featuring the latest generation consoles – no older consoles or PC’s I’m afraid.” So, no Worms or Galaga or Outrun2: Coast 2 Coast.

He did add a small glimmer of hope for retro fans… “…we do plan to do a few events based around 80’s and 90’s classics available through Wii Ware and Xbox Live.

Either way, it’s great to see gaming branching out into new places. Hope the launch (& future trading) is a great success.

If you’re in the Brisbane area this Saturday, here’s the relevant info.
