Re: Conversion Capers feels lazy

From what I can tell having read RG from issue 1 is that the staff tend to be very pro Amstrad generally using CPC screen shots first above the other formats unless they are talking about a specific format version. To say they constantly promote the Spectrum is the opposite off what I see so If they...

Re: From the Forum - Issue 204: The Nostalgia Effect

For me it is just seeing what all the early machines can do and wondering how things would be different had other machines been more popular than the ones that were.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 203

I found the Mario article interesting enough, over all this is a great issue with plenty of true retro stuff in it. I have no interest in anything beyond the turn of the millennium as it is all the same from then on, only the earlier stuff looks more jagged around the edge due to lower resolution.

Re: Amiga musicians/C64 musicians

I actually found the Sounds Digital album on Youtube. My thing with the Amiga is that although there are some fantastic tunes, the use of samples seemed to me, to take some of the skill away. I remember playing Bionic Commando on the C64 just before I sold it to get an Amiga. Once I had the Amiga a...

Re: PlayStation 3 - Retro or not?

From my point of view it is down to the technology behind the machine rather than how old it is. Over the years there have be some major changes in how a machine runs. Before the 8bit era things were generally very crude with no more than simple square blobs floating around and a 4 bit processor hen...

Taking ones foot of the clutch too early when changing gear, that grinds gears quite well :wink:
