Well, i have some news for you. Those good old days might be brought back by a man with a dream to offer a gaming experience, enjoyable by all. Most people's idea is just to make money. His, is the simple goal of making other happy and getting them into Gaming.

This all started with my long trip. Over the past weekend, I have been on a little self vacation into Mt. Pleasant, visiting a great friend whose lonely in college by herself. While on the trip, I was sure to bring along my counterpart Superboost (Logan).

While looking for an all you can eat KFC buffet, we came across a store located at 710 North Mission Street named "GameGo".

Now, the gamers that we are, were completely compelled to stop and have a look, and aside from our curiosity, we were also looking for a place that sold Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars. So, we got through the hellish traffic that was Friday's rush hour, and walked inside...

What we seen, was a complete oasis for gamers.

A plethora of sounds, lights, symphony's and little warm feelings inside came about use upon entering this gaming sanctuary.
