This month, the RFGeneration Community Playthrough Group offers you two vastly different gaming options for the retro and modern playthoroughs. If depth, awesome graphics, and portability are your thing, join us on the modern side for the fantastic and adorable.......yes, adorable........RPG Magical Starsign. If camping out in front of the tube, frustrating single-button joysticks, underwhelming graphics, and fierce community competition are you thing join us on the retro side for eight fun and challenging Atari 2600 Activision titles. And if you just love gaming in general, why not join us for both playthroughs by immersing yourself in a great RPG and taking breaks with some frenzied Atari action?

On the modern side we'll be delving into a lesser known RPG for the Nintendo DS. Magical Starsign may seem a little cutesy, and it is, but under that sugar coating is a surprisingly deep science fiction/fantasy adventure. Create your hero/heroine and join his/her group of galactic school of magic classmates as they travel to bizarre, alien worlds in search of their "missing" teacher. The game features a very intricate and challenging combat system and requires heavy use of touch controls, so make sure you have a stylus handy!

For the Retro Playthrough this month, enjoy some quick and frantic competition against your fellow RFGeneration members as you play two classic Atari 2600 Activision titles each week. We will be holding high score contests weekly for both games and crown our site's own Atari 2600 Activision Champion at the end of the month. There will even be a prize! Games for this month include: Seaquest, Pitfall!, Stampede, Enduro, Kaboom!, Keystone Kapers, Sky Jinx, and Spider Fighter. Even if you don't own a 2600 (though you should!), Activision anthologies and collections, which include all of these titles, are cheap and available on several different platforms. Members, get ready for some truly ole skool, retro gaming!

If anyone needs Activision cartridges for the retro playthrough, let me know. I have 2 full Banker Boxes full of Atari 2600 cartridges that are duplicates, and a large majority of those are Activision titles.
