You gotta swing your hips now…

1987.

Around the world, gamers are battling the Bydo empire in Irem’s R-Type. And in a little Spanish arcade… a young boy has made it all the way to the last level! (Respect! I never made it further than level 4. -Ed) He’s excited. He’s hitting the buttons. He’s screaming at the enemies.

Who’s made Technorati’s “Top 100 gaming blogs”?

July 14, 2010

Wow, despite a zero dollar promotional budget, and many non-blogging demands on my time… JustOneMoreGame has just cracked Technorati’s “Top 100 gaming blogs”.

Thankyou to my ever-patient wife who puts up with my blog-related natterings, my son (“Player 3”) who wishes I’d let him hit the keyboard more often, and to you, my reader who makes all this stuff worthwhile.

Thanks must also go to the many lovely commenters and story suggesters, the nice people who ‘retweet’ our posts, and the lovely sites who care enough to link us occasionally.

You rock.
