Does anyone know if there's any emulator available that'll allow Monaco GP to be played?

Keen to try it after The Rev's review this month, couldnt see that or 'Champion Driver' in Mame.

When I finished they literary lifted me up for the celebration. The arcade operator wasn't very happy though. He threw us all out. ...........then ramped t...

That's exactly what it's being used for. There's no secret about that. That's a bit cheeky then innit? It's effectively giving the impression that the mag has more content than it does. I'm a bit surprised thats it's 'no secret'. I suppose the other way to think about it is they could just leave it...

Is there any need to have this in every single month? Surely once every so many issues would be more than enough. As a reader (and subscriber) since issue 1 I just flick past these now. It's interesting to have a look now and again but not every issue. I cant help thinking it's just being used to pa...

Witnessing 'Doom' on my mates pc on his 21" monitor with huge speakers for the first time.

Seeing this game just blew all my preconceptions of what future games might be like. This was the future today.

Borrowing a mate's 'Kong' by Anirog Software. I was so blown away with the quality of this game I left the 64 on for 2 whole days so I wouldnt lose the game. This wasnt surprising where you consider the only other 2 games I had for my 64 were 'Interceptor Software's 'Crazy Kong' and 'Frogger'.

Surprised Mayhem (Matt Allen) has never showcased his C64 cart collection.

From what I've heard it's huge.

'Retro' is all down to the individual usually based on age.

To an old fart like me (40) Sonic the Hedgehog was considered a 'newer' game and any PS1 was next gen.

Its all really down to how much of a gaming history one may have.
In my case, starting out with a Texas T199 4A it's quite substantial.

I shelled out for 3 a while back and I'm seriously in need of another 3. I'm not paying almost a tenner per binder though.

'Off' and 'Rip' spring to mind - sorry.

Virtually all mags are £5 now. Most of your current console mags are jam packed with ads and are filled with articles that could easily be grabbed from the net. RG however continually produces fresh interesting articles of the classic games and computers. I've been buying computer mags since 1983 a...

You know, I would rather have a refurbed stand up cab than a newly built one. I'd always preferred a stand up cab too but for most people its the issue of both lack of space and / or a parner saying 'Dont think you're bringing something like that into the house, there's no were to put it!!"
