Who wants some retro magazines then?

Hi everyone, I'm having a bit of a clearout and I've decided to get rid of some of my magazines. I was going to list them on eBay but I thought I could save the hassle of listing them along with the fees, by offering them on here. All the magazines are on the flickr link below http://www.flickr.com/...

Not retro but I just bought Bioshock for £9 in Currys.

One of the few games that shows modern gaming isn't that bad.

It has to be the Saturn. Reminded me of the old channel 4 logo but given that my experience till that point was the Mega Drive, it really impressed me. The sound as well was spot on. Does anyone remember the T.V. adverts that had the same screen at the end with a cheat hidden in it? Given the suppos...

I'd have to say the best games from my rather paltry Game Gear collection are:

The Lucky Dime Caper,
Master of Darkeness,

and is it too obvious to mention columns?

Nintendo 64 advert music

Does anyone remember what the music was that was used in the early N64 ads. I have it on a Gamesmaster promo VHS vid but the closest I can find is this on you tube. Not the same but it might jog someones memory.

Please don't say you've also owned Jaguar for those 14 years but have only just got 'round to buy one of its top two titles?! Nope, bought the Jag for a tenner when Game got a batch in about 6 years ago with Doom and Attack of the Mutant Penguins. Still quite bad, I know but I must admit, it gather...

The worst thing I did was work out how the school passowrds worked. Basically the names were in sequence with numbers I was 3685 and therefore the next person was 3686. When you went into my documents or something similar to access your files, you could see everyones name. I used this to go on dodgy...

As soon as he said Willy, my mum said "we've got that" and then she laughed because it reminded her of what happened the week before when he was selling a trampoline on the tv.
