Re: Official feedback for issue 62

Copied from my post in another thread: What does annoy me though, is the lack of coverage in the Mag (of the IBM PC and Dos games). I'd love a Dos retroinspection. It's perfectly viable with loads of content - The types of machines that were around at the time, the games available and companies mak...

Re: Playstation in the Mag

the giant leaps of evolution undertaken by the gaming industry and technology as a whole from 1996 to present day These "giant" leaps were not necessarily for the better; bigger budgets, fancy graphics, cd quality sound... crapper game play. :evil: My intention for bringing this thread back from th...

More computer coverage (rather than consoles, and excluding the PC), is always appreciated by me. Sorry replied to the previous post before seeing this PC bit... grrr! I want PC coverage, but of old DOS games. Probably in a small minority here, but does anyone remember the early Epic games (i.e. On...

This is a bit like Napoleon Dynamite's uncle: "Don't you ever which you could go back in time?" :)

Thankfully I bought my DC and PS2 without selling anything! It was the only way I could afford it at the time. Howe...

How about International 3d Tennis? :wink:
Good technical achievement on a c64.

Cannon Fodder was good, Mega-lo-mania was great, but SWOS is the best football game ever!
