Re: On my way to Hull for 8-bit Symphony

Was fantastic!
Absolutely worth the trip.
And as a bonus I got an autograph from both Rob Hubbard and Paul Norman!
I am looking forward to the next event.

On my way to Hull for 8-bit Symphony

Anyone attending as well?
I look forward to the music, but also to 'meeting' (ok, just seeing him in person) Paul Nornan. The Forbidden Forest series was one of my favorites on the C64, specially for the music.

Re: Turbografx Mini/PC Engine Mini

I am tempted of buying the japanese version, if only for the difference in the presentation style. Europe/America: Know your classics. From the Golden Age of Gaming - A revolutionary console - shines again - experience a piece of history - (games list) - the glory of the past - is within your grasp ...

Re: From The Forum: 196

Wil there be a PC Engine Mini? WOW! Automatic buy for me. I am only afraid that it could be easily confused for, say, a coaster or a business card holder case?... it was already so tiny! "PC Engine Micro", perhaps? In addition to loads of classics, I hope the games will include the exclusive version...

Re: Back to 80’s vs 90’s dual feature

Actually, to make the feature more flexible, one could compare the various decades (70s, 80s, 90s and 00s), maybe choosing two each time, using the perspective suggested above. Or this might be a completely new feature, to be honest. Personally, I like features where the talk is about how we were, w...

Re: Back to 80’s vs 90’s dual feature

I like the suggestion and I think it would be quite interesting. Let me add something. I would suggest to use this set up to include highlights in differences in industry trends in the 10 year time span. Topics could be the most various, taking specific examples (games, companies, people...) as refe...

Re: Font Size

Seconded. Larger text please. Also because often, when there is white font on a black background (or blue font on a black background... issue 185... aaaargh!!!), also due to the low quality of the paper, the letters get 'smeared' and the text becomes 'pixelated' and almost unreadable. I am sure it i...

Re: Tracking lateness

There is balance in the world. Now that I have moved to the UK I was thinking to be safe from the delivery delays. But, after an initial happy period of 3 months roughly, and just in time for my renewal in May, the following started to happen: - the June issue (182) was late and checking my account ...

Re: Word search or crossword

I would enjoy a page of various puzzles. What about a 'spot the difference', comparing two screenshot with slight variations (e.g. sprites missing or different). The 'screenshots' can also be not real screenshots, but just made up for the game. Also, 'spot the intruder', where among a crowd of a cer...

Re: Tracking lateness

Incredible! It is a MIRACLE! Issue 180 arrived TODAY!!! oh... ok, I am in the UK now. By the way, until last weekend (april 15th) still no sign f issue 179 at home in Italy. As for the side-topic about paper vs electronic RG, I need paper. If it was electronic, I might buy it, but I won't probably r...

Re: Retro Gamer issue 179

Nice contents! At least I manged to get a copy earlier than usual (see 'tracking overseas lateness thread') by buying it directly in UK. Speaking of complaints, could anyone confirm if he also has the bbc arcade clones' screenshots in upper pages 40 and 41 and in bottom page 43 covered with a square...
