The Joker & The Thief.

A friend of mine had his own idea of how the burglary took place, and put together this artist’s rendition of the events:

Ninja vanish!

Personally, I would have preferred to be robbed this way.  Everyone likes to think they’ve been outsmarted by the cleverest of the clever.



My name is Adam and I like to write about videogames.

On Wednesday the 8th of September, my videogames were stolen from me – 93 of them, in fact – along with my Wii and Xbox 360.  Oh, and I don’t have insurance (tip to all gamers: GET INSURANCE!).  The list of stolen games reads like a who’s who of current-gen titles.  Yes, unfortunately the thieves took a calm, considered approach when burgling my unit, taking only what they could offload relatively quickly for considerable sums of money.  That leaves me with only my retro games for comfort.

Retro City Ransom is about making the most of what I have.  I have old consoles and old videogames, and I have my words.  So what I am going to do – with your help – is play those old games and use those words to write about my experiences with them, in an effort to rebuild my videogame collection.  How can you help?  Well, if you like what you read even just a little bit (or even if you feel the slightest bit sorry for me), you can help by donating your spare change to my cause.  Or AU $5,000 should do the trick!  It’s up to you.

My goal is to review or write about a game in my collection at least once per week.  I hope you enjoy this experiment in crimefighting!
