Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 200

Congratulations Darran and team, still going strong and still keeping that old school magazine flame alive where all else have failed. This magazine has been with me for longer than my two broken marriages, and costs way cheaper than they did as well :D :D :D

Re: From The Forum Issue 201

I started with handhelds with the original DS, but since then probably my alltime favourite is Ocarina of Time 3DS. Such a good game for taking away on long business plane trips.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 200

Interesting that you haven't bothered to read it and are criticising it. Ever heard of how useful farting in the wind is?

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 198

I have subbed digitally for years now. It suits me fine. And since the paper version in stores here in Norway cost extremely much (last time I checked the price was around 14 GBP for a single issue) and digital sub on my ipad is so cheap (22.50 GBP for six months), it's an easy choice. I got an int...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 198

Yes, I go straight to my fave magazines site for the issue now, it is impossible to buy over the counter in Christchurch New Zealand now. Sad. But retailers in NZ screw the public over anyway putting high retails on issues that are actually the older (3 issue previous) issue. So easier to buy onlin...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 198

Sub arrived in New Zealand about 5 days ago, have to say that this is a top notch issue, every single page will be read. the M2 article in particular was brilliant, being a programmer geek guy I absolutely love pieces like that that delve into the technical side of things.

Commander Keen 4: Secret of the Oracle - the first time we had a truly great platformer on PCs - the original trilogy were good, but this was when id Software started touching greatness.

Altered Beast, all due to nostalgia - the local chip shop had a single game, and for a year or so it was this.

Re: screenshots

Actually, I was wondering this too. What do you guys use to get your N64 screenshots from - they always look incredible compared to the ones in my old N64 mags? an Ultra HDMI?

Re: Retro Gamer Review Marks

I still haven't forgiven Darran for the 100% rating for Super Mario Galaxy 2... still waiting for an apology for that one! :D All that horrible jumping about, deserves no more than about 82% in my books. Funnily enough I got SMG-2 based on Darren's review of it, but haven't gotten round to playing ...

Hardly bitching about it, just highlighting that for the target audience, few will find it an attractive freebie.
Thats the problem with these forums, people seem to think they are speaking for the entire mags readership, when in reality 99% of people don't think about it like you

I've been getting RG since issue 35 or thereabouts and haven't ever had a problem with captions not being readable - time to get your eyes checked out for macular degeneration

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 193

I still love the magazine and have an active subscription, I've been going through really bad times at home, so have lost the passion for coming and discussing stuff on the forum. Most of my online discussion about gaming these days happens on Facebook, the immediacy of it is really good, although t...
