Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 160

Is it in stores yet? or just out to subscribers right now?

I have a friend flying over to visit me on Thursday and I'm hoping she'll be able to grab a copy before she leaves the UK.

Never played any of the Zelda games, never had any Nintendo consoles growing up and don't fancy playing them now.

I'm loving Superbrothers Sword and Sworcery EP, it's an amazingly well made game and the music is incredible.

Also picked up fight night champion in the EA Sale today which is a lot of fun.
