Re: From the forum issue 138 - Point and click

you do you just press 'space' to get the dialog to display all at once don't you? but that said I don't remember it being slow to display on original release. It was slightly annoying on the remakes where they added voice actors, but then again you could still tap space to skip. Now Les Manley - Los...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 137

I lol'd at the part about the PSN network being hacked and "it clearly taught Sony a lesson as it hadn't fallen foul to a devastating attack since" - Bit below the belt!

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 125

Unfortunately iI'm not the photographer and I take my comment back :s the attribution must have been hidden in the centrefold when I read it last night. Please accept my apologies DRS.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 125

The photo of the Exidy Sorcerer on page 96 appears to be lifted from Wikipedia which in turn was licensed from Flickr under creative commons but there's no attribution.

Re: Printing out-of-print issues

they won't allow it, they need the old issues to re-hash the content for the new ones - seriously I have every issue bar issue 2 (ok my issue one is the reprint that came free a while back) and they seem to be doing that a lot lately.

Re: Issue 67 Feedback

Did I dream it or does the Operation Wolf article say that light gun games have been around since the Thirties? is that correct? Probably read it right, if it was referring to those Wild West shoot-out things. Lots of fun, they were :D Ah get ya - I was imagining "Kaiser Wilhelm 3D" or something :)
