Very much looking forward to this (Got every issue so far) :) .

My personal experience and interest is in the computers of the '80-'84 period (ZX81, VIC20, Jupiter Ace, Oric-1, Texas TI99-4A, Speccy, Dragon 32, C64 and Amstrad CPC464).

Also consoles, starting from the '70s (Grandstand Pong/Tennis), and Atari VCS. Then Colecovision/Intellivison/Vectrex, followed by a huge gap until I discovered Nintendo 64, then Gamecube and Xbox, and finally (hopefully) Xbox360 tomorrow :) .

hi to all
been reading the mag for a year or so now.

i'd forgot so much about my era (dragon/spectrum) and its good to have a friend remind you of the choice moments.

i remember forcing my mum to buy me hunchback for my dragon 32 and my +2 was permanently hammered with match day.

does anyone remember a dragon game called quest? that ate up my time as an 8 or so year old like pamela anderson did to me a few years later on!

Funnily enough, I got in touch with a freelancer at the retro ball who knows the dragon inside out. Expect a feature soon...

Good! Old RG always promised one but it never seemed to materialise. Would it be possible to interview a certain Andrew Braybrook, since that was the machine he programmed with before moving onto the C64?

I'm sure I read somewhere that he won't talk about him games programming, as he had some problem with a stalker or something... :?

Didn't RG publish an interview with Steve Turner? Or maybe my mind is playing tricks again...

I was in touch with Stever Turner a few weeks back and both he and Andrew are more than happy to talk about their back catalogue.

Nice refurb... ;)

Good to see the words retro and gamer back together again and rollin out on the shelves as well as a shiny new forum... good to be home.

I'm also posting this because I just wanna see my name in every section when I go back to the index as I'm the only one on at this time ;) :P
It's like an old pair of slippers, isn't it?

Well, that cover looks sweet and the feedback is good so i'vepaid for a 6 issue subscription. I'm going to try and pick up the new issue from the shops today because i'm too impatient to wait and i'm not sure my sub will start with issue 1 [or 20!]

To the Retro Gamer team:

Good luck, loves!
