Re: Retro Gamer Letters Page 218

The 90s is kind of a black hole for me: I went in strongly with my Amiga 2000 and carried on even stronger with my A4000, but all consoles and PCs went by the wayside, and arcades were disappearing in general. I picked up more social stuff along the way with a pair of visits to The Gathering and the...

Re: Home Computer Club (late 80s)

I remember all those clubs with single and double page spreads and nearly always an inlay falling out when you opened the magazine - and they were all annoyingly 'UK only' so I sat there grinding my teeth over the waste of space and opportunity (I wanted "Gods" from Magnetic Scrolls! I still haven't...

Re: Tracking lateness

In a swift sprint across the channel #216 found my mailbox today, only two weeks after the previous issue. (I.e. having cut back the slack now.)

Re: Hot topic discussion

Gone past the 51 mark now and the last system that is retro to me is the Jaguar and possibly the Sega Saturn. Basically anything designed for 2D first.

Re: Questions for David 'Q*bert' Thiel

(Is that Epyx' "Winter games"?)
Did you have tools on the C= 64 that would analyze real sounds and generate similar synthetic sound effects? I always wondered this about the Epyx 'Games series.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 214 - Turrican

Not quite up there with #213, but still a very solid issue. I kinda like how you chapterize your main feature now (and I have properly enjoyed the last ones too for a change).

Re: Issue 213

Kudos!

I just finished this issue in practically one sitting and it's been a long time since my retro bone has been as well and truly tickled.

Re: Coin-Op : The Arcade Guide

FedEx tried to deliver mine on Friday while I was away, but I picked mine up just now. The size of that thing! Most impressive. Looking forward to getting some time to do proper reading.
