The web site, the register has published a great article about it, they also published a great write up on the Jupiter Ace last year would be great to see that style of writing in the mag.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 112 - Feedback Thread

Just one point - the PC Engine article last time was not a collector's guide, so you are comparing apples and oranges. Certainly there was some opinion in there, but dismissing the whole idea of the guide is wrong. Sorry Merman, but I was aware of the difference if you meant me, the collectors guid...

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 112 - Feedback Thread

I have just read the collectors guide, and then read the comments on this thread about it. I can see that it is a guide only and I did not have any problem with it at all,in fact I did not have a problem with any collector guides that have been published, however the comments about sports games and ...

The first was really funny, and the second was impressive.

Good stuff.
Thank you neoconom, I think as it was a nuisance call, it has struck a chord in people! Glad you like the VIC too, it emulates the spectrum now aswell.

Re: Retro Gamer Issue 108 Official Feedback

I thought the Before Video Games article was absolutely brilliant, and very interesting and refreshing.

However the letters page is looking sparse again, surely people are sending you interesting items to print there? or did you not get my email :lol: :lol:

Retrotext Microsoft scam caller Video & VIC 314

Hi, I have a youtube channel for all sorts of computer stuff. This is a video of a recording I made of a man ringing me trying to get the settings of my computer altered so I would have to pay him money to change it back again, he is unable to do this to my computer :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Re: Official Feedback Issue 105

I think most people who post are here (or a large number anyway) are subscribers. So even if we hate the cover it doesn't really matter as we have already bought the mag. I'd be interested to hear what the 'over the counter' sales are like for this issue though as I can't imagine it will entice man...

Re: Official Feedback Issue 105

Hi I am still reading the current issue, I found the ST article and the Mire Mare piece very interesting so far, the cover is different as in it looks like a middle management training manual, but it has been well received in this thread so what do I know!

Re: Raspberry Pi a new retro-gaming behemoth?

Thought I'd mentioned this already, but can't find it in here. Anyway, when I've finally got my house and stuff sorted, I'm planning on seeing if I can install a RasPi into an old Amiga 1200 case. I'd strip the insides out (aside from the keyboard), use a KeyRah ( http://www.vesalia.de/e_keyrah.htm...
