WFL Football 1974

4th & Inches: Where are they now?

“My one aspiration: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward…I press on toward the goal to win.” – Philippians 3:13

When you think of good, well known gridiron video games, what immediately comes to mind? Madden? Highly likely. NCAA Football? Probably. Tecmo Bowl? Absolutely. How about 4th & Inches? Probably not. With the current American football season now in full swing and 4th & Inches a mere handful of weeks away from celebrating it’s 30th birthday, I felt it an appropriate time to revist one of the true great elders of gridiron video games.

If you are big in to retro video games, you may well have heard of a web site named Retro Collect. A polished and professional gaming site dedicated to all things retro.

If you would like to check out my article discussing starting a family and keeping enthused with video games, please feel free to click the link below and also check out a great web site too!

The Coterie Patreon Campaign. Launch!

Today I launched a Patreon campaign. I’m a bit cautious about it, this is new ground for me. But I want to make this site the best it can be, and take my writing to a whole other level. More on this in the Patreon description which you can find at my Patreon profile page.

The new Patreon design however, is somewhat annoying. It ‘hides’ milestone goals. Which for my campaign is of no use whatsoever. You can’t see what I am looking to do with the site! I’ve included the goals below and also at the bottom of the profile page.

Have a think about joining my campaign, if it isn’t for you, no problem! Lets see where this goes and go from there. Thank you for your time.
