Re: Selling my entire collection...maybe...

Hmm...well, retro chums...I’m up to Issue 184 of a complete collection and still mulling it over. I was looking on eBay this morning and someone sold issues 90-155 for £279.99...wow! So £150 is a bit on the low side based on current values, but thanks for the offer 👍🏻 I think I may chance my arm at ...

Selling my entire collection...maybe...

Hi all, This is not a decision I'm taking lightly, but for various reasons (some personal, some not) I am considering putting my entire collection up for sale. I have every issue, right from number 1 to date. I also have all the discs and the infamous "Payback" disc! I am not going to let them go if...

Re: Home Brew Section

I'm not really in favour of the XBLIG coverage as they are new games on new hardware and we are covering old machines aren't we? You make a good point, but its so hard to find good games on XBLIG thanks to the turd ratio and Microsoft's general apathy to the whole platform that I wouldn't mind bein...

Re: Are you a fan of the Gizmondo?

I'm a fan! Bought one a few years back & I installed Service Pack B so got loads of games on SD card. The Stunt Car Racer update is fun (part of the Fathammer Classics pack), although not the same (or as good as) the C64 version... Chapperz :D The game on the Fathammer Classics card is Stuntcar Ext...

Re: Retro City Rampage

I remember when this was being developed for the NES! Let's hope it emerges from "development hell" soon...good luck.

Re: Home Brew Section

I think we're (mostly) all agreed that we want more, so that's a good start. I'd like to see more coverage of new games on old machines/hardware, as it's really important to keep the old machines alive. The independent houses like Psytronik are producing quality games with the lavish packaging, artw...

Re: iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch game recommendations

Vectrex? Yes please! I am so close to getting an iPad, an iCade will surely follow when this comes out. Could never afford a Vectrex so this will be the next best thing.

Re: Angry Birds on Sega Megadrive/Genesis

People who create stuff "just because they can" make me smile! Things like running Windows on an Android phone...why? "Because you can"! Respect to the guy who created this!

Thanks for the post.

Re: Complete Retro Gamer Collection - For Sale? Hmm...

Thanks for the replies so far folks! And thanks RG for reprinting Issue 1 - instantly devaluing my collection! [joke]

Still mulling it over - I think £2 an issue is not enough to make me sell up yet...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Sadly, I'm in selling mode, not buying...am in the process of contacting my local independent specialist for prices... :cry:

Some lovely tales here though...must...resist...buying.... :lol:

Re: Near the end of a generation: Wii, PS3 or Xbox 360?

I've got all 3...played the 360 the most by far, PS3 mainly just sits there for Blu-Rays (and PS1/2 cos it's a 60GB) but the Wii was innovative and fun, although it's been ages since I've been on it. Wii Fit board in the corner of the conservatory! So my vote goes to Wii for the happiness factor... ...

Reading this thread is making me feel like there may be some truth in the old "video games cause violence" argument! Only joking folks! Plenty of LOLs in this thread. I have felt like smashing stuff up at particularly hard missions etc., but a little part of brain tells me not to as could I really a...

Complete Retro Gamer Collection - For Sale? Hmm...

Hi everyone, Firstly, I will say that this isn't a decision I am making lightly. Retro Gamer is the only video games mag I continue to buy, but am just mulling this over so I thought I would ask the community for their thoughts... I have every issue complete with all the coverdiscs, having been a su...
