Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 203

Speaking of Matthew Smith, it's eerie how much he looks like me at the same age. I have pics of me at the same age home at my mum's that is virtually indistinguishable. My digital images have not the same picture, but look at him here: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/I1cSO7pTHnM/maxresdefault.jpg And then lo...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 203

Indeed, I feel Matthew Smith and Manic Miner has been done to death now. But I love Mario, and welcome more if there is something new to it. :shock:

Re: From The Forum Issue 203

The first time I was shown the hidden exit in world one in SMB3, sending me to my untimely doom in a much later and for me unbeatable world. It was magic.

Re: JSW guided tour (issue 201)

By all means, I don't expect the mag to be written for me exclusively. :) It is a testament to the mag that I read probably 99% from start to finish despite not having personal experience with much of it. It helps being a historian I guess. ;) But I did read perhaps half of the article, that in itse...

It's good you guys like the article. For me, it was the first article in ages I did not read from start to end.

I've just got to the 2000s in the mag now, really a magnificent issue. :)

Re: From The Forum Issue 201

Well, it might not be the objectively best handheld game in any way, but there was no GB game I owned as a kid that game me as much fun and Boxxle and Turrican. I choose the latter due to the music.

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.

Re: From the Forum - Issue 199: Shareware

For me, I cannot be any other game than Commander Keen 4. That game or Super Mario Bros. 3 was my first ever videogame, both came to my attention at the same time - around age four. I still play it yearly to this day. It's just so good!

Re: Magazine cop out !!!

Retro Gamer is one of the densest magazines out there in terms of words per page. I don't think a few nice 2 page spreads showing off a console and breaking up the articles is really a bad thing, and I quite enjoy them. Having recently bought some of the earliest issues though, the word density hav...

Re: From The Forum 182: What's your favourite Mega Drive game

Since more or less no one had a Sega console in Norway ever, it was completely a Nintendo place until PlayStation came along, I can't say I've played much MD... I think perhaps the only one might be one of the Sonic games and some scrolling fighter the one time I was visiting that rich relative that...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 181

Ah, Street Fighter... :D I have a small story for that: Back in the early 90s, I inherited a NES and had some friends with NES and SNES. No one had Sega in Norway really, and PlayStation was far away. I was young (born in 1986), and played this game which I loved that I was sure was called Street Fi...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 180

With this one subscribers are getting an exclusive cover! And it looks awesome in my opinion :o How will non-exclusive cover look? And as usual we digital subscribers (I've been subbing digitally since 2009 or so I think :o ) are treated stepmotherly I guess. Only the regular front, no extras of an...
