Re: From The Forum issue 177 - 2018 retro wishes

I am hoping to seem the youtube videos comeback where the team would preview the print. Those were the days lads, those were the days.

Re: 52 Game Challenge

I used to do this. Now, it's less committal, more like, "Well old chap, you've beaten that one now haven't you, what now then?" I fare well straying far from games with no ending, and have dropped multiplier games almost completely (save the likes of puzzlers like puyo). I like the sense of completi...

First they took the youtube videos, then took the vertical spreads

‘Twas a fateful issue, 164, she marked the end of them beloved YouTube preissue teasers. Then came 173, not a vertical spread to to be seen. Dark omens... I could be mistaken, but I’ve read it twice and the closest thing I’ve found to the vertical spread was the map on shock troopers or the taiko dr...

Re: How about vid.me instead of youtube?

Eh? Pay for a preview of the mag? Is that something people would do?? I pay for the mag - I would NOT pay for a preview video :shock: It's more than a preview, it's all the personality, quips, and whit that are not able to be portrayed in the print. I mean we wouldn't have the vertical spread joke ...

How about vid.me instead of youtube?

I miss the videos guys! If you migrated the videos to vid.me, after i think 50 subscribers, vid.me allows you to monetize the channel by adding a subscriber fee. (i think a 1.99 or more). Similar to say, patreon, but for a video channel. A 1.99 for a 10-15 minute episode is something i would definit...

They day they trade 8 bit/ 16 bit for disc systems, is the day I'm done reading the magazine. A feature hear or there, tolerable, but I read it to read about the oldie olde stuff

I really miss the youtube videos

i miss your guys' videos, they were so much fun. its really the reason i picked up the mag in the first place way back when, boy do i love those vertical spreads. 167 and 170 are such great issues too have coverage to.

Future, give your lads some air time again please! :(

Re: From The Forum issue 172 - ZX Spectrum Anniversary

I love reading about the ingenuity and seeing all the homebrews. Diverse and, at the same time, solitary in the colors is something I never get over. :oops:

Re: Arcade machine restorations

Showing some of the coding loops and hook and bits... I would love to see some DigDug/Mr.Do blocks on the original language. Like what was Mr.Do's attack code looking like vs DigDugger's
