Re: Retro Gamer Now On IPhone

I got an ipad and installed the retro gamer app. But the app crashes every time after the splash screen :-( I stopped Retro Gamer app on iPad crashing by turning off wifi. Not a solution, but it's something. Well, that "works" here, too. But then I get my empty library and there is no possibility o...

Don't forget you can use http://keepvid.com/ to grab a copy of Google and YouTube videos, but yes they can be annoying (especially since YouTube uses FLV format). FLV plays fine in mplayer and VLC media player though.

Your favourite online retro videos (eg. YouTube)

Love to see what you guys have discovered. The most entertaining one I have seen recently is a look at the PCW Show at Olympia (London) 1984. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-8577912300808470876&pl=true It was the E3 equivalent in England at the time and captures the buzz and excitement very...

I posted a thread about this elsewhere, but don't miss the GamesTM Retro Anthology that is available again in Melbourne (originally came out last year I think). It has been re-released in ...

Issue 4

I have a feeling that issue 1 and maybe 2 weren't available in normal Australian newsagents. Can any fellow Aussies confirm this?

GamesTM Retro Anthology available in Melbourne Australia

I have seen it in 2 different newsagents so far this week (only been to two). Just thought I'd let you guys know. It was $25 when released a few months ago, but they are now selling it off as part of a value pack for $10. If you don't know what it is, GamesTM is a regular games mag that has a retro ...
