Magazine needs an article on the PC

As the title says. Retro Gamer needs an article on the PC. Even if its just how 80s - 90s PCs were developed. I'd love to see an article on this.

Re: Retro Game Repair?

Note that I stating that $100 in Aus dollars. NES consoles go for that much over here, if their in working condition.

Re: Minor or lesser known Arcade Coin-Ops you really liked

Agreed. Though the person I watched play it, got pretty damn far in it. I dunno how that's even possible, as it's hard as hell.

Re: Fighting Fantasy

Give me Lone Wolf any day of the week over Fighting Fantasy. That said, the Fighting Fantasy gamebooks are excellent don't me wrong. But your always some one different, and in most cases in a different universe per book. In Lone Wolf in comparison, your the same person from book to book, continuing ...

Re: Minor or lesser known Arcade Coin-Ops you really liked

I remember really loving the Castlevania arcade game that was under a different name. Never actually played it myself at the arcade, and only saw it once. But it looked really impressive. Got to play it in Mame32 decades later, and I completely suck at it. Which is odd as I'm really good at the rest...

Re: Retro Game Repair?

Those $20 NES consoles are wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy underpriced. Buy those, repair em up and sell em for $100. That's what I'd do, if I were any good at repairing systems.

Damn fascinating stuff. "The 8-Bit Guy" on youtube does MANY videos on old computer repair. Love watching those.

Re: What are you currently playing?

Currently playing Assassin's Creed Origins. For a game with "Assassin's Creed" in it's title, I've yet to see a single Assassin in it. Beyond that it's an excellent game that makes some fairly major changes to gameplay. Far more RPG than prior games. Exploration based side activities are really damn...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

I do a fair bit of buying and selling of retro games as a means of helping with the finances. If I was to post what I was buying and selling each week, you'd be seeing a heap of snes, megadrive, n64, ps2 and xbox games.

Re: Dragon''s Lair home conversions

I did a remake of the NES game a few years ago. Improves the gameplay a bit, though art's not my strong point. So the animations are half half. Made for a great coding project to do though.

You can find screenshots of that remake in the homebrew thread.

Re: Home Brew Section

Oh man. That's the first game I ever did a remake of, to improve my coding skills. http://www.mediafire.com/convkey/030f/cf593n0jbly957nzg.jpg?size_id=6 Did that one back in 2010. Never released officially obviously. Shortly followed by a remake of Fishing Derby on the Atari 2600: http://www.mediafi...

Re: How Far Behind in the Magazine Issues Are You?

So I've been an avid reader of Retro Gamer Magazine since the beginning. My problem? Finding time to read it. There's just so many good articles per magazine generally, though I tend to skip the Spectrum articles since we never had that over here in Australia + I feel that the magazine has a odd lo...
