Re: Amiga musicians/C64 musicians

The Amiga had a much stronger demoscene where the musicians were big names. Jesper Kyd. Romeo Knight. And so many others I'm forgetting.

Re: Retro Gaming Spotlight: Gauntlet

This is an _amazing_ game. In some ways it kinda follows the sandbox style of emergent gameplay; you just plonk down some generators or monsters and throw in a number of obstacles and then it goes on to live its own life.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 200

1975: The game was called "Moria" was it not? (EDIT: And I got it wrong myself ironically enough)

Re: Tracking lateness

I was able to congratulate #200 yesterday (the 7th) - a perfect 4 weeks since the previous issue. Still tucked in the bag though as my reading pile is pretty well stocked at the moment.

Re: Questions for Barry Leitch

Why can't anyone do Gauntlet 3D properly like on the PS2/Arcade? Would you be in on a new spin on it? (It was Barry who did the original IIRC?)

Re: Tracking lateness

#199 decided to share the good Word(s) with me yesterday (10th), a paltry 24 days since the previous (carving back some of the slack of a 4-week cycle).

Re: Less known retro computers to discover

The French Thomson(sp?) range of 6809 machines. Uses AFAIK the same gfx chip as the CPC.
I have odd soft spots for the ADAM, Memotech, Enterprise, Atari 7800.

Re: What are you currently playing?

World of Warcraft Classic - starting in the first seconds of the coming Tuesday (CEST). 2300 if you're in Blighty.
World of Warcraft Ascension. Still. Mostly for the mindgame of making the perfect meta; and how many working styles can you make?

Re: Tracking lateness

#197 popped when polling my mailbox on Friday (16th), which should be 28 days after my previous (utterly logical). As of lately my sub copy has been around 9 days ahead my newsagent.
(BTW, EDGE is not stocked locally.)

Fair is fair - I've been in two minds about many issues lately, but this one pushed my retro button all the way down. Cheers!
