Re: Questions for Sandy 'Ant Attack' White

I've just seen that the abbreviation of Richard that begins with a D gets changed to 'censored' by this forum?!!? I'm now determined to do a Making of Censored Tracy on the NES... Heh... I've always wanted to do the Making of Super Skidmarks myself... :D OK my question is... why doesn't Sandy like ...

Hmm... interesting point. Well Op Wolf has to be in anyway so I'll find a way round it :)

Re: For the mag: budget games

Speaking of which I forgot The Human Race, which for me features some of his finest compositions. Rob definitely did some of his best stuff for budget games - Master of Magic, One Man and His Droid, Spellbound, I,Ball, Thrust, Last V8, Phantoms of the Asteroid, Flash Gordon, Arcade Classics, Rasputi...

Worm War I was actually by Dave Lubar who went on to do the mighty A8 masterpiece Pastfinder. Later ported to the C64 but the original was best ;]

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 112 - Feedback Thread

Seems like you are too busy playing non-retro balls like Colonial Marines to spend time playing decent indie and true retro gaming. Makes me question your commitment quite frankly. I've read some daft stuff on here (not least in the last few days...) but this takes the biscuit. Is Darran only allow...

Exactly, when I pointed out that error it should've been the end of it...some people heh. But thanks for putting an end to it Dude I think people were just pointing out the difference between a geniune 'error' and an 'omission' which of course is what that was. Anyway, nothing to see here, moving o...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 112 - Feedback Thread

@kleinemaus ~ I think most reasonable people don't expect the mag to list every existing format for every title, it would make the mag very tedious to read and ugly to have walls of text listing systems on every page... On the Making of Rampart I listed most (not all) of the platforms because they s...
