Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 205

Good one for me this month. Hated the cover mind and I normally don't give a toss. The consoles look weird. Oh, and I imagine some of the cards stats will trigger a few people😂 Ah! Forgot to say about the Top Trump Style cards included. A bit similar to something else I believe :!: One category sim...

Re: Coronavirus

I had to take my Mum to and from an Ultrasound which was strangley still on and I have a nasty feeling it's going to spread here. While traffic was lower there was still quite a few cars about, so many places still open too and the old town high street visibly had a lot of parking in use from the e...

Re: Coronavirus

Yeah, fingers crossed and all the best from me too. Over here, all non-emergency surgery has been postponed indefinitely just before my wife was due to have an operation on Friday after waiting nearly a year. These definitely aren't the best times for people who've got ongoing medical issues. Sorry...

Re: Questions for Howie 'Atari/Gottlieb/Jaleco' Rubin

Were there any games or companies you regret turning down?

Did you feel restricted by Nintendo's policies?

Did you ever suggest changes/ideas that made it into the final game?

Did you sneak in any Easter Eggs/hidden stuff that has not been found?
