Re: Do you still subscribe/buy the mag ?

Digital subscription since issue 101, first 100 issues bought in print.

Got a backlog of several issues but I read most articles, skipping the more modern subjects.

Re: David Lowe kickstarter

I've backed all 3 versions! I think they should've adjusted this time to reduce the goal by a couple of grand, but we'll see.

Tempted but even £25 is a lot when you're on the dole. It'll have to wait.

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Sadly not cheap enough for me!

As a Yoshi fan, tho, I am getting Woolly World, including green Yoshi amiibo.

Re: Wii U Owners Thread - Including User IDs

Wish I could afford it. Not into FPSs but I like most other kinds and Splatoon looks gallons of fun.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 141

I've often seen game articles where the lead platform was C64 but most shots are Speccy. Would've thought RG would ask freelancers to use a file-naming convention that included a priority number, so designers can use this to help decide which shots to include, saving the need for separate instructio...

Re: Artcade book

I noticed the significant "if", too.

This my only long-delayed KS out of [checks KS account] 92 collected pledges, so for me it doesn't feel like a big deal, but must be frustrating for those who don't back much.

Re: C64 commpendium book

Got my Amiga book a few days ago, to go with the C64 one, a few days ago. Think I would've preferred fewer stretch goals if it had meant a sturdier slip case.

Re: Project sidologie

I'm sure there'll be a late surge, but for the full set the total has to more than double its current £18.5k in 15 days.
Reformation broke £75k at the end.

'Worry' is pretty much my default mode tho!

Re: Project sidologie

After the first few days, funding slowed depressingly -- looking like it'll be a 4 disc set, rather than the full stretch of 7 (with the DVD). I'm surprised after the big money Matt Gray's Reformation KS made, considering several composers' work is featured in Sidologie.
