Re: Suddenly having problems receiving new issues! :(

Re: Selling My Stuff - Advice Please

Are you going to any retro games shows (e.g. Revival)? If so you could arrange drop off with the buyer there to save both a chunk of cash :mrgreen:

I'm thinking about it as no longer have space for 200+ RG mags... :(

Re: Best demos for 8/16 bit systems

Second Reality by Future Crew was the DOS demo that set a new benchmark for PC demos in the early 90s. Put the PC on the map vs the Amiga.

There's also a C64 version :shock:

Re: David Pleasance book Kickstarter

David Pleasance seems like an interesting guy, but definitely is the 1980s throwback of brash businessman, "yuppie", bragging about his successes (often individual success) and blaming failures on others. I definitely got a Lord Sugar vibe from his video. Spot on! Will buy this when it's out. The "...

Think I probably used WinZip back then? Thanks to downloading a key gen EXE for it... :oops:

Re: Is there a market for PC game boxes?

People are still after big boxes and especially large manuals! Much nicer to have a printed copy vs a PDF... :D

What boxes did you find?

Re: Retro PC gaming

My first computer was a 286 with CGA and an amber monitor! Dambusters, 1 on 1 and Tapper were the games it came with. :mrgreen: Most friends weren't interested in DOS games until Doom came on the scene, but there were loads of good games prior to it. Anyway I wish they had figured out how to get 256...

Re: Going Digital - replacing printed RG issues with DVD?

Re: Going Digital - replacing printed RG issues with DVD?

Thanks for your help guys.

I think a while ago I saw DVDs on eBay that covered up to RG 120. Hmm, perhaps they weren't legit...

It's a shame a magazine that knows all about collecting and that online services perhaps won't last forever, no longer offer physical digital copies, i.e. DVDs

Going Digital - replacing printed RG issues with DVD?

I've been reading and collecting Retro Gamer since issue 40, however, I'm running out of space to store them! So I've decided to sell a chunk of the early issues and hopefully replacing them with DVD emag versions. Can you still get hold of the DVDs? If not is my only option buying them from the Goo...

Really? I did one a few years ago for an OSX port (of a Windows product) and they never asked if work had been started.

Wish him all the best, as he was a top guy @ Revival 2014.

So this is why he's moved to Ireland...
