Re: The twilight years of your favourite magazine

Re: Raspberry Pi coverage in Retro Gamer

Yes!

Maybe some retro builds that people have undertaken? (will have to get my maker head on!)

Info on where you can find retro related Pi stuff?

Re: Which single developer sums up the Amiga for you?

Another tough one, For me the miggy was the loss of the individual coder and the start of 'developer' teams. I guess thats why initial replies were software houses and not individuals as it became harder (IMHO) to identify an individual from within a dev team who were becoming more and more 'faceles...

Re: Best of Epyx's The Games

Tough one, I plumbed for World Games.

It just felt better than the others and a little quirky at the same time.

Re: Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser trailer!

I've got the original versions on VHS (Widescreen Editions) and then ponied up for the VHS Widescreen of the Special Editions.

And that's it, not bought ANY more (even the prequels) as they kept being tinkered with etc.

Re: Christmas Rituals

I did want to see 'It's a Wonderful Life' but of course the shops hide it on DVD, then ramp up the price around Christmas. It wasn't worth it.

Re: Retro Gamer issue 149

Waiting for me when I got home from work.

Had a quick skim thru it, can't wait to read it properly!

Although I do concur with the comments ref the paper, it does leave a lot to be desired.
