Welcome to the Arcade!

Hey You!  🙂

Thank you for stopping by my page and checking it out.

My name is Marc, but I go by Old Skewl (pronounced – ōld sko͞ol) , or OldSkewlMarc, depending on where I’m hanging out.

I am a dad, husband, entrepreneur, volunteer and gamer.  Depending on the time of day, week, or month, there is no telling which hat, or how many, I will be wearing.

I’ve been married for 20+ years and have 3 kids ranging from college age to 1st grade.

I am self employed and that has kept us busy for the past 18 years.  I love owning my own business, but it definitely has its created many challenges when it comes to spending time with family, but we have always been able to make time for a good vacation or a good gaming session. We take it where we can get it!  We are all avid gamers whether it be video games or board games.

This will be my 2nd attempt at putting a blog/space together for me to spend some time. But I now feel like I have a little more of an idea of where I want to go with it.

I play ALL kinds of games, from MMORPG’s like World of Warcraft, to Indie games like Solaroids.  My goal is to put out reviews of these games, along with game footage from my live casts/streams of them from when I play.  I have already had a few opportunities to play a few games while chatting with the developers of that game to learn more about what they have created and would love to be able to do that again.  I love being able to be involved on the inside of projects of any kind and seeing how they work.

I also travel to conventions when I can, and will be posting pics and stories about what I saw at those conventions.  New games coming out, big name titles, indies, and even card and board games.  If it looks interesting, i’m going to check it out…and share.  If you know of something at a convention that I am going to attend, and you want to learn more about it, let me be your eyes and ears.  Just let me know and I’ll do what I can to get you that information!

Have a game that you think I need to check out, or you would like for me to stream?  Make sure to let me know!  I am always looking for new games to play!

I hope you enjoy coming by and checking out my reviews, pics, and videos from everything that I will be doing.  I look forward to sharing my experiences with you and hearing about your experiences as well.

Ultimately my goal is to create a place where we can talk games, good and bad, and generate a fun environment for us to hang out.   Just like an Old School Arcade!  Make sure to bring your quarters!
