Re: For The Beeb Friends....

Anyone tried out any of the Superior Interactive PC remakes, properly? I'd be sorely tempted, if I wasn't so gosh-darnit brassic at the moment. My censored computer costs me more than my car... [ If Retro Gamer wants to pay for my registration fee for the classic pack, I'd be more than happy to rec...

Re: PC hardware for DOS Games

I am in the process of setting up an old Compaq P3 for DOS and Windows 95 games. The W95 bit I'm not concerned about but its the hardware for DOS thats my main concern. I've read that it can be tricky to get PCI cards to work and my other issue is that it came with a AGP GFX card. The motherboard h...

Pinball fans go on and on about this, trying to be accepted by real gamers and trying to fill our magazine with their boring rubbish.. Lets face it, there is no way there will ever be a Pinball magazine on the shelves of your local newsagent because it would never sell so they get all sulky and wan...

Would probably be quite an interesting article, given Nintendo's origins.

this looks very interesting... although I'd like to see Raiden 3 make it's way onto XBLA.

They always say that - it's so that when they get the push they receive the huge golden "so you ballsed it up, have a sh1t load of cash for your incompetence" handshake. I hope they give him a kick up the arse instead.

I'm quite concerned about how this game has affected Carson and what kind of treatment he will receive from now on (since we're supposed to be signing him from Pool full-time). Character building, I hope (if he's to represent his country in future). It was a big game and he was the wrong choice for...

There's a pinball feature in issue 45... Huzzah! I'll shut up about pinball now :D ...except to say that I perhaps overstated when I said that without pinball videogames wouldn't exist (I was drunk at the time ;) ), however pinball (and other electro-mechanical devices) really were a major influenc...

Is Retro Gamer exclusively video?

The reason I ask is that there's a conversation in Q&A about Pinball Machines. Although there is some support, a lot of the commentary is that such an article or feature would be boring and irrelevant. I don't understand this as pinball is the precursor to the video age; without pinball there would ...

Pinball machines have nothing to do with our part of the gaming world and using any space in the magazine to cover them is not only a boring waste of space but another intresting article has to be left out to put this junk in. The only thing that might be interesting is a round up of the pinball ma...
