i might collect all the 2009 retro shamers too for a laugh - why? - because mostly they're dirt cheap, and there's something to be said for putting on a bit of shonky tat after the pub and laughing at it with you friends. :lol:

Can people please stop describing this issue's cover as a Christmas/Xmas cover. It is quite obviously a neutral inclusive Festival/Holidays cover. If it was a Christmas cover it would say so, like the original artwork from 1984. Happy Eid. I really do come to this forum to get away from the Daily M...

Coverwise i think i'm 50/50 on this one: yes it's not Frey's finest work, but it does evoke childhood xmases - so on balance that's a good thing.

the William Shatner Vic20 adverts were cheesemungus - granted he wasn't shilling games - but Captain Kirk in a comfy jumper selling the world 3.5K of commodore awesomness really made me laugh. :lol:

what will you be collecting in 2009?

I usually pick up my retro as and when it presents itself, but I was musing the other day I might actually try and collect a complete series of a particular game - either Castlevania or Resident Evil.

Anyone else planning to collect anything specific next year?

I dont have any rare or unusual games - but MSR and Resident Evil: Code Veronica are both fun and dirt cheap to pick up (at leat they were when I go them). I was chatting to the owner of a retro shop called X-Electrical recently, and he said Dreamcast games were suddenly becoming very popular again ...

'Fraid you need the memory stick for games saves etc - so it's essential.

WH Smiths is very cheap for memory sticks at the moment.

i like this feature: I'm always keen to see new remakes or classic series installments.

I'd like to see an expanded retro radar too - maybe next to something old, something new - as they compliment each other well.
