eBay: are there any PC Zone or Charlie Brooker fans on here?

I found some bagged and unopened copies of old magazines I used to work on and decided to put a few on eBay. They are all in great nick considering their age. They've been stored well.

Re: say something about the person above you

The guy above, at this point in time, has 36 more posts than me on the Retro Gamer forum. He joined on 31st March 2009. I joined on 2nd Dec 2010. That's 21 months difference. So who's the slowest poster to the forum? He's posted 94 times (including this post) in 60 months. I've posted 58 times in 4...

Re: Official Dreamcast Magazine Dummy Issue Zero

Just been speaking to the original editor of the Official Dreamcast Magazine, Mark Higham. He said this about it: "I think we only printed about 50 copies. It was only a dummy to show the folks at the pitch so we went with a minimum order. There were two versions though - I think there were 50 of ea...

Official Dreamcast Magazine Dummy Issue Zero

I was just rummaging through some boxes when I found this... It's a perfectly-preserved copy of the Official Dreamcast Magazine dummy issue zero, produced by Dennis Publishing in 1999 to win the Sega license (which they achieved). Only 100 copies of this were ever printed, and it must rate as THE mo...

Re: What Comics did you read as a kid?

I used to love reading the Camelot 3000 series by Mike Barr & Brian Bolland.

Bolland really could draw women well! I think I fell in love with a few of his characters... ;-)

Re: Greatest PC Gaming Moments

The first PC DOS game that really made a big impression on me was Day of the Tentacle - the talkie version. http://www.mobygames.com/images/shots/l/3506-maniac-mansion-day-of-the-tentacle-dos-screenshot-purple-tentacles.gif I remember going 'round to a friend's to play it with him and I don't think ...

Re: What Blu rays have you bought this week?

Just imported a region free BluRay of The House On Straw Hill from Severin Films . Also known as Expose , starring Udo Kier (Flesh For Frankenstein, Blade, etc.) and Linda Hayden (Blood On Satan's Claw). It was one of the infamous DPP39 video nasties back in the 1980s. Unfairly lambasted for its slo...

Enjoying a bit of Half Man Half Biscuit right now - Achtung Bono, my favourite HMHB album.

Re: The Thing (1982)

If you like The Thing you should hunt out the documentary The Thing: Terror Takes Shape which offers some great insight into the making of the film. It's a couple of hours long and features interviews with most of the cast and crew. It's worth it for Rob Bottin's interviews alone - that guy is such ...

Just reading Xerox Ferox by John Szpunar at the moment. An 800-page epic about the horror fanzine scene of the early '80s and '90s, Really excellent read, written in a Q&A interview style, so it's very easy to read. Bob Martin, the first editor of Fangoria, gives an excellent, frank interview, as do...

Re: The Wonders of the World Cup

And goodbye to Alan Hansen. I know a lot of people don't like his moaning about defenders, but I think Hansen did a marvellous job as a pundit. Well done to Alan for decades of great football punditry, and hope he has many years of golf left in him!
