Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 171

Not a great issue for me. I'm sure the King of Kong article was covered in a similar way a few years ago, when the film was actually released. Seems a bit of a retread to me. The rest of the articles... Zaxxon looks good and I'm glad you said how awful ZX Spectrum version was. Saboteur II also of in...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 170

Well for me the worst issue in years. So much Final Fantasy, feels like 1/3 of the magazine.... and Final Fantasy XII ISN't retro and you won't convince me otherwise. Codemasters again. I'm bored of them now. They and their egg character seem to have popped up a lot lately. Tronix are even more obsc...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

If you read my posts I never said I didn't enjoy it, just that I'd never heard of them or any of their games. I actually quite enjoyed the article - I have heard of Ed Rotberg etc. - It was just a comment about how obscure they were. In that case I am glad you enjoyed reading it. But if you think B...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

Freelancers or not, people that write for your magazine should show some professionalism when talking to readers on this the official forum. They are paid by the magazine after all. Not wade in with over the top defences of articles not even by them. Especially when the actual author showed them how...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

It's been pointed out to me on another forum that Laird (the articles writer no less) gave an excellent response to my feedback, and I thought I should give him credit for that. He didn't tell me what I should of said, or make snide comments. He offered a balanced reply that added to his argument of...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

Also if anyone else who works for the magazine wants to chip in and criticize one of their loyal readers/subscribers then feel free. It's great customer relations.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

That's clearly not the case. You're not allowed to be rascist on the forum as the AUP states, but you're clearly allowed to say if you don't like elements of the magazine. We can't improve things if we never allow negative feedback. People are clearly going to disagree with you if they don't agree ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

Block capitals... nice.
Show me where I say RG shouldn't write about them. I make no comment one way or the other. I just said they were very obscure - which they are. For goodness sake, no need for the angry caps lock. As I keep saying I quite enjoyed the article. Really don't see the problem.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

Also I've never heard of Bally Sente, or a single one of the games mentioned they wrote... are you just making up software and software houses now? If not they are so obscure as to be ridiculous. The whole point of journalism is to inform readers of things they don't know. A quick google confirms t...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

What a bizarre response to my piece of feedback. Why would I post a message saying how great it was to learn about something I hadn't heard of when it is not what I think. Stop trying to tell me what to write. It's a feedback thread. I've left feedback. You don't agree with my feedback, but that ok ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

Having now read it its my least favourite book issue for a while. Good bits are Scramble, Text Adventures (Hobbit and Pawn minority issues aside), Kwah and Dizzy (hate the game, but interesting article.) The rest is just not to my taste really.. So for me a bit meh. Also I've never heard of Bally Se...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 169

I've flicked through it. Nowhere near as good as previous issues for me. Not much of interest to my tastes. Also since when is 'The Hobbit' an obscure text adventure? Surely there are enough little known text adventures out there without including 'The Hobbit' in Minority Report. The Hobbit is one o...
