Re: Paper Boy - What makes it a classic?

Its mischievous spirit, humourous background graphics, infectious theme music and overall distinctive concept make it memorable. Whether it's a classic gameplay-wise is up for debate, but you can't deny that the game hit upon something aesthetically and thematically that other games of the time didn...

Re: Paper Boy - The Conversions

The NES conversion is the only one I have any experience with, and as far as I can tell it did a somewhat decent job of replicating the arcade version.

Re: Paper Boy - Stand Out Moment

Not so much a moment, but what stands out to me is the detail and variety of obstacles that gave the game a lot of character.

Mortal Kombat - Techno Syndrome music video?

This is my first post on the Retro Gamer forums, and I'm a recent subscriber from Australia. I absolutely love the mag. :D I just wanted to know if any other retro-minded people on here could remember the music video for the infamous Techno Syndrome by the Immortals.
