Re: User-generated content

http://i.imgur.com/IykfTgC.gif (sorry, it just felt like The Good Wife :D ) All said, everyone and all are right, of course, as it *is* a matter of perspective and age. However, I feel games are changing less and less these days, so games from 2000 in my eyes are not retro, just... old, nostalgia (...

Actually, I did. Or is "...and that's just a matter of perception" much different?

Re: User-generated content

Back to the 00's would be good as well Maybe we could have Back To Last Month once that's done, it's about as retro. So Jan 2000 isn't retro ? Over 15 years ago ? Again the mag started in 2003. So if they had a Back to 1988 in that issue would you think thats retro or 'too new' ?? I love the 80's, ...

Oh I know, I pretty much said so myself.

just a shame it wasn't launched in a country with a better climate. The C5 and British weather doomed it.

Re: Game screenshots for various systems please

Personally I'd like even more depth in some articles... of course you run the risk that if the Driller article was 8 pages long people who aren't interested automatically skip 8 pages, but with lots of articles it feels like they've been a wasted chance because they feel shoehorned into a small numb...

Ohhh right. And because no one has said it in a while it gives you the right to be ironic. Gotcha.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

It's a reference to everyone constantly saying we are pro Nintendo, when we're really not. It comes and goes until a new flavour of the month comes along. Yeah, well, in my book "boooring this has been said before" is not an effective form of assessing critique... And if others have been saying it,...

Really not sure about whatever on earth you might mean. Unless the comment was directed elsewhere, please don't assume I'm au courrant with what is being said.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

I've often seen game articles where the lead platform was C64 but most shots are Speccy. Would've thought RG would ask freelancers to use a file-naming convention that included a priority number, so designers can use this to help decide which shots to include, saving the need for separate instructi...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

Hello Graeme, so nice to finally hear from you (honestly). First of all, I didn't find the article 'shoddy'. This characterisation was in reply to the argument about the inability to take screenshots, it did not reflect what I thought about the article itself which I quite enjoyed (and thought it co...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

Hard to source screenshots? I had never taken Speccy screenshots before. It took me literally 3.5 minutes (I timed it) to download Spectaculator, find and download Driller, load it and find how to take a screenshot (which is more complex than with CPC emulators). If nothing else, I guess the article...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

Given that Freescape itself was also developed on the CPC, that Driller came out on the CPC and hence arguably it was the first version out since it was developed on it, since the Spectrum version was a port as stated in the article I'd say that yeah, the CPC one was probably the lead version. But e...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

Screenshots annoy me in probably every issue. A recent one that was really annoying was the Frontier one only having PC screenshots :twisted: I don't care that they look the same as the Amiga, it's an Amiga game and it's good to see that they look the same. In this one Driller didn't have any Amstr...
