Re: Subscriber Covers

Seconded Hi folks, first visit back to the forums in a loooong time. hope you're all well. Just wanted to register my opinion on the new sub cover idea, I'm really not a fan. While its a nice idea to provide something unique for those of us who have a subscription, the covers aren't brilliant TBH. A...

Found this site the other week:

Re: From The Forum issue 172 - ZX Spectrum Anniversary

Dare I mention the Vega+ ?! :wink: I was seriously looking forward to seeing it emerge, but looking more unlikely as time passes. Let's mention it..... ***SCAM!*** JXD for me - I was a C64 kid, but have fond memories of the early classics on friend's speccies. Orbiter, Manic Miner, Acadia, Bugaboo,...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 170

Re the Peripheral Vision Sega control stick - is it really unusual and a 'boon to left handed players' to have buttons to the left of the stick? As a right handed gamer I much prefer to control with my right and 'shoot' with my left? As a Lefty I would hate the Sega control stick. As per Marvin I w...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 170

They've barely scratched the surface of 8 bit. There's masses of scope to cover lesser known systems, companies and games, not to mention all the arcade stuff that somehow gets bypassed. Yep - Lots of scope for more Arcade coverage. Enough of the Dizzy - if you want to interview the Olivers - again...

I contacted him after reading your post. Hoping that I'd be able to purchase issues that I don't have.
I don't think you and I would be the only ones interested in a reissue as PDFs

Re: C+VG's Retro Sections from the 90s

You could always contact Keith Ainsworth direct. I think I still have his email address if you would like it, as I used to do lots of trades and buying off him. Same here. In fact Keith ran the "original" Retrogamer Fanzine Now the Original RETRO GAMER Fanzine I'd be *REALLY* interested in seeing :)

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Well retro TV-wise I've rewatched 'The Prisoner'

Also watched 'The Corner' mini-series by The Wire's creator

New stuff. 'The Americans' latest season, 'The Leftovers', and 'Ray Donovan' someone's recommended 'The Expanse' (?)

Looking forward to final series of 'Halt & Catch Fire' and 'Black Mirror'

C+VG's Retro Sections from the 90s

Hi All I read C+VG in the early to late eighties. However, by the nineties I'd moved on to Amiga/PSX specific titles But I've heard mention for the below - which I was not aware of back then. 'Retro Ranch' by Keith Ainsworth & 'Retro Computer C(K?)abin' by Dave Kelsall From what I understand these w...
