(ed. note: Intrepid contributor ViciousPjuraHead is spending the summer in Italy and will be filing dispatches of a gaming or comic related nature, when he gets around to it.)
Buongiorno readers! I’m in Italy for the summer but in between slowly sweating to death in the unforgiving sun & dodging erratic motorinos driven by feral Italians I’ll try to find some interesting & relevant bits about the gaming & comic culture here in Roma. Only being here a day or so but I was able to find this funky quasi arcade sporting some very current titles, including the previously mentioned Sonic & Knuckles. Which, seeing as how it was released in 1994, puts Italy only about 18 years behind the curve, gaming wise. Do they even know that a major franchise has based several AAA-titles on exploits of their (imaginary & not-so imaginary) countrymen? I’m going to have to go with a big ol’ niente.
