Re: Tracking lateness

In a swift sprint across the channel #216 found my mailbox today, only two weeks after the previous issue. (I.e. having cut back the slack now.)

Re: Hot topic discussion

Gone past the 51 mark now and the last system that is retro to me is the Jaguar and possibly the Sega Saturn. Basically anything designed for 2D first.

(Is that Epyx' "Winter games"?)
Did you have tools on the C= 64 that would analyze real sounds and generate similar synthetic sound effects? I always wondered this about the Epyx 'Games series.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 214 - Turrican

Not quite up there with #213, but still a very solid issue. I kinda like how you chapterize your main feature now (and I have properly enjoyed the last ones too for a change).

Re: Issue 213

Kudos!

(And incidentally, I think the art for the non-sub issue is better and would have done better as the sub pick.)

Re: Tracking lateness

I got the same letter myself and basically wondered "why do they bother?" as 2(?) days extra wont be noticed by anyone with the standards they are keeping.

Re: Coin-Op : The Arcade Guide

FedEx tried to deliver mine on Friday while I was away, but I picked mine up just now. The size of that thing! Most impressive. Looking forward to getting some time to do proper reading.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 210

Near completed this one now, and as I said it looks like a retail cover with the stickers on the skateboard for the highlighted games? Good idea anyway. And I must say Tony Pomfret was a real character! I always though it was kind of a name that would belong to a posh doorhandle(take that censor fil...

Re: Tracking lateness

So today #213 decided to add to my plentyful (but slowly dwindling) un-read stack. Along with the Retro Tea-breaks book. Result!
EDIT: And my local newsagent had it the day after when I was there.
