Spanish version of Retrogamer mag?

Not than I can understand Spanish, but was intrigued that there's a version in another language... or is it just a fan mock-up? :?

(Stupid forum won't let me add image to first post, so added in first reply... :twisted:)

Any ideas what issue it is?

Yeah, I had the for my DOS PC. Local games shop had a tiny collection of PC games (in early 90s) so I took a p...

I'll be honest, there's been a few that make it look like a child's magazine but I still buy it. Discretely. :D

Re: Arcade-opoly: The Board Game

Nice work! Looks great. This is the only copy that exists for now as it was printed using American print on demand games company GameCrafter.com. It will be available soon from GameCrafter.com after I do some graphic fixes. The price plus postaging and uk tax makes it rather expensive though. Why do...

Re: Starforce - Kickstarter - Old skool tabletop emulator

First thought was "this looks great", then I scrolled down to the actual (complete) unit price... :(

Good luck to them, but it's a lot of $$$ for something a cheap Android tablet & good controller can do much better.

Should be an instabuy, but for some reason it feels rushed :?

Re: Discuss Time! Issue 148

Pole Position in the arcade while on holiday in Barry Island during summer '83 or '84. My Dad was never interested in games, but loved this as a racing fan, so I got to play it a lot! Prepare to qualify!

Re: Cinemaware are remaking Rocket Ranger

Well an update has just been posted on the kickstarter. Well its not good news...... Project delayed 1-2 years in the best case. I voted for the "no thanks, give me the money back" option in the survey, but it's unlikely that it will win. Delayed for 1-2 years! Why? :shock: I'm not a backer, but th...

Re: BBC2: The Gamechangers (GTA drama)

I missed it - but hopefully it'll turn up on the BBC iPlayer later. On a side-note, they've added a few ancient computer shows from their archives onto that, so go have a look. Most of their early 80's computer output (The Computer Programme, Making the Most of the Micro, Micro Live) has been freel...
