Re:

Really 2 pages is not enough to cover everything from ANY country(considering 1/2 of it is pictures), but when taken into account the amount of information John would receive from the sources in question you have to understand that some things may be trimmed or omitted. People may decide to put the...

Re:

If people had agreed with you i would be on your side but when its just one person commenting on this then i think it would have been a better idea to email RG directly. First off, when I wrote my piece, nobody could know how many people would comment on it, as the magazine was released less than a...

(One note before I get to the main text: the "subject" line is limited to 8 characters? Not much use then, ah well). Anyway, you're aware I had some problems with the article about Germany, but in general I enjoyed the issue a lot, certainly the most well-balanced and content-rich one of the still y...

Re:

From a retail perspective I've noticed that women are much more likely to buy and enjoy retro games than modern ones so a greater female presence in the mag would make perfect sense. It's funny, the few females I know who enjoy videogames as more than just a curiosity are much more inclined to play...

Re:

At the end of the day it seems the vast vast majority of people were fine or okay with that article not to lose sleep over it. Its like a TV program when they have to apologise to the 12 people who complained about something in it, how about the other 9 million who watched it and were fine with it?...

Re:

I was working in Germany last week and discussed the article with several people who had grown up through the arcade / 8 bit time and they backed up what was in the article without any quibbles. Without knowing more about these people, I can't really judge why this is so, but my best guess would be...

Re:

OK, you guys are TOTALLY missing the point. What if someone (ie moi) had NEVER played a certain game (like Last Ninja)? What would we do then? Resort to immoral methods to get this stuff? I think not! Until it is proven that you CAN do that legally in America (or the UK for that matter), I ain't go...

So find the the laws then so we can stick them in Babelfish and find out for ourselves. You critisise for being opinionated and then only show opinions yoursef... If you can tell me how to find laws that don't exist, I will do so. There are laws setting up in very general terms that too much violen...

Re:

Nice issue, but hadn't you already done a feature on the Atari 2600? Yes :oops: That'll teach me for not reading back issues ;) I enjoyed the new feature and don't mind the repetition - after all, retro stuff is a finite mass. So getting the low-down again was nice (and I like the new layout a lot)...

Re:

especially after discovering the poor guy selling it badly miscalculated the costs of shipping to mainland Europe, as he ended up paying close to 30 ukp for it and didn't ask me to more money. That sounds pretty excessive. Did he sent them air or surface? The latter's usually fairly affordable. I d...

Re:

The highest bidder lives in Norway. In which case, I shudder to think how much the seller's going to charge to ship the mag, seeing as their UK price is three quid. It'd probably work out cheaper for the Norwegian chap to take out a sub than buy a few issues like this. Unless Scandinavia rates as a...

If people like the idea of follow ups later, then I'm sure Darran wouldn't mind covering a previous country with new information. The next installment could cover the points you mentioned, more of the home computer side of things, and also look at East Germany before the reunification (assuming I c...

P.s. anyone know if those t-shirsts in the Sega Classics adverts are gonna be available anywhere?
