Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 201

So, does the copy of this at retail include the Nintendo guide? Or was it a subscriber only bonus, and if so, is it worth contacting customer service if I didn't receive it? Or is it like most things for subscribers, once you miss out, there is zero chance to get it from Future, and must now try to...

Re: JSW guided tour (issue 201)

Well what a kind thing to say. Cheers mate. And for those wondering, I do not know who smccd is. If it's you Dad, thanks but we've talked about this before... Also, I too like the guided tour/director's commentary format - for 8-bit games which often had specific screens, I think it works well - I'...

Re: Amusement Arcades, where are they?

The best arcade to visit at the moment in the U.K. is the Arcade Club which is based in Bury near Manchester and a new one in Leeds. 3 floors of retro arcade goodness for only £16 to get in and then all on free play all day. Retro Gamer did an article on them a few issues back. Retro heaven. Wish t...

Own up, who is the world record holder on Pole Position?

Over 69k is an awesome score that is featured in issue 201.

Get in touch with TG to register your score.
That was me, and I absolutely did not cheat (uncrosses fingers) :wink:

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 199

I bring nothing useful whatsoever in fact to this or any forum. :) Anyway another great issue esp the article on the A L I E N series of games (shoulda been an issue or 2 Long) :arrow: My first draft was 2000 words over, hence the 'you started this show me everything' box out. Glad you enjoyed it!

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Watched legend last night, the Krays film.
Was ok. Good lead performances but it could have done being a bit more gritty. Felt rushed too despite the 2 hour plus running time. But it was ok.
