ARG_Banner_hi-resausretrogamer.com – The Australian Retro Gamer E-Zine – is an independent video games site committed to spreading the nostalgic vibe of retro gaming culture across the known universe.

The ausretrogamer team is here to bring you regular high quality retro gaming news, interviews, history, reviews, coverage of events and hunting expeditions for those hard to find retro goodies.

ausretrogamer was established in 2012 and has grown to become a popular independent source for old-school gaming and retro pop culture news and information. We were even nominated for a Shorty Award in the blogger category in 2014.

Alex and the ausretrogamer team love to take part in retro gaming events – we are proud to have been part of the classic gaming area at PAX Aus in 2013 and 2014. In addition, at PAX Aus 2014 Alex was a panellist on the  ‘The Best [Retro] Video Games you’ve [Probably] Never Played’ panel. Please let us know if you have an event you would like us to contribute to or cover.

As well as articles published on the ausretrogamer site, founder Alex Boz regularly contributes to publications such as Reset, Nintendo Life (Nintendo Battle – Donkey Kong: Tabletop vs. Game & Watch), Gametraders LIVESTACK Magazine and news.com.au.

Alex has been gaming since the early 80s when the weapon of choice was a joystick with a single fire button. He loves sharing in the nostalgia of retro gaming and 80s pop culture, but don’t you dare touch his Masters of the Universe action figures!
