There have been quite a few examples where we have asked for games to review and not be sent them because we haven't paid. We don't have a budget for such things, so they don't get covered. It's going to be a tricky balance.
i usually ask for ROM images because i know that people manufacturing cartridges are usually doing so just at the break even mark, but even then a few people have turned me down because they're generally worried about their games being pirated and my writing for Retro Gamer still doesn't differentiate me from Adam; in some cases i've been offered real cartridges, which is fantastic but doesn't really help if i haven't got the hardware!
Although i try to keep up with as many 8- and 16-bit communities as possible, i only have a finite amount of time what with a day job, family and so forth - i know i'm missing interesting releases, so if anybody sees something interesting please
send me a PM - i know i miss some releases even on the formats i follow closely and i certainly don't mind receiving three or four messages about the same game!
But no more listings just yet, getting RG Rampage
done almost killed me! =-)

Aha! i actually talked about this idea a year or so ago but never found the time to pitch it properly
to Darran! Are you talking about tools for current generation or 8- and 16-bit machines?
