Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 191

I loved my Amstrad CPC and friends did too. A lot of Amstrad versions were better than the Spectrum equivalents.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 190

I was surprised by the f words too - it's not something I expected and hit the wrong side of balance in my opinion. If I had kids I would've considered Retro Gamer a "safe read" too - not that kids are the target market obviously. It's not like it's watering the magazine down by not including a few ...

It was a nice surprise to see a feature on Space Station Silicon Valley.

Hi, apologies if this is the wrong place to ask but has anyone received their 8bitDo yet?
Mine arrived about 6-7 weeks after I subscribed.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 184

As a returning subscriber (I unsubscribed when it was upped from 6 issues a year, I think), this is an issue I wouldn't have bought, as none of the main features are games I'm interested in. Despite that, I did enjoy reading some of them, especially The Oregon Trail game (which I wasn't aware of). O...

Re: Subscriber Covers

I don't like being negative about a magazine I generally enjoy, but (now I'm actually a subscriber again) the Daytona subscriber cover is the worst so far. The regular news stand cover looks great.

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

Hi, I have also been a subscriber for a long time and I have a rolling direct debit subscription where I don't have to keep renewing. Am I able to also get the controller and still keep this self renewing direct debit I have set up? Yes. I've just received this month's issue and there's a full page...

Re: RE: Free Subscription Incentives

I'd imagine 8bitdo get something out of this, so I doubt the full controller price comes out of magazine funds. It's good publicity for 8bitdo. I've resubscribed for the first time in many years (I guess I buy the magazine 2-4 times a year on average). I'd only seen the 8bitdo controllers a few days...

Re: From The Forum issue 183 - Tetris: Best puzzler ever?

I was never a fan of Tetris. A review of Tetris Attack in Nintendo Official Magazine convinced me it was different enough from Tetris, and Tetris Attack became my favourite puzzler of all-time. It's especially fun (and tense) playing multiplayer with my brother - building up massive chains and dropp...

Re: Subscriber Covers

I'm not a subscriber and I've preferred every one of the newstand covers since the different covers were introduced. I think it works with some magazines. I'm not sure why it doesn't with Retro Gamer. Edit: Now I've subscribed via the controller offer, I hope the subscriber covers are ditched. If an...

Re: Magazine cop out !!!

I buy other magazines and Retro Gamer is one of the two best (the other being Wanderlust) in terms of delivering content, especially where the cover feature is concerned. I bought an issue of Trail recently and the main cover feature was a 2-minute read!

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 178

I enjoyed the MUD article even though some of it went over my head. I was hoping for a bit more from the Goldeneye feature given how many pages it took up, but it was good nonetheless.

I liked the little Oh Mummy feature too. Championship Manager still to read - I'm looking forward to that one.

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 178

Plenty of interest in this one for me, and I'm all for more in depth features when they're a game I like. I'm glad my Perfect Dark mention got into "From the Forum" - my first appearance. :D

Despite having a N64 from the early days I never got Golden Eye and still have not played it. I did get its spiritual successor though Perfect Dark.
