Ray Barnholt, former GamePro Staffer, creator of Scroll magazine (no relation to Notch or Bethesda), and chronicler of all things Game Center on Crunk Games, gets to add a new feather to his cap: being featured on a Japanese TV show.

Game Center CX (the show that Retro Game Challenge is based on) recently filmed a segment here in the US, and Ray was on-hand to meet the show's host!
