Today is Retro Game SuperHyper’s third birthday!
So let me just spew a few thoughts your way about where Retro Game SuperHyper is at, here on the doorstep of its fourth year!
As we all well know by now, today, April 21, 2019 is the 30th birthday of the Nintendo Game Boy! …although, at age 30, I would think he’d be a Game Man by now. I mean, he’s been able to vote in America since 2007.
