I think you've made a mistake, you've misspelt "Amstrad CPC" on the cover.

Gutted i'm away tomorrow for a few days, wont be at home to read it !

Not too keen on the cover ! However should appeal to a lot of new readers seeing that though (specially US) and at least that girl over at WOS cant be upset by a zombie with blood which was on the last cover ;)

Cant wait to read it

Err ? Thought the C64 was reviewed in a much earlier Retro Gamer as was the Speccy ? Unless its a different look at the machine instead of the usual hardware review.

Anyway cant wait to get the next issue

Issue #2. Hardly recent here heh. And it was more a hardware overview of many things Commodore courtesy of Mr Bebbington than how the Retro Inspections pan out in new RG. Anyhow, I'm sure you'll all let me know what you think of my efforts once it's out :P

It says in your post Darren - 'Retro Gamer pays homage to one of the greatest 8-bit computers ever made'

Looking at that little line, I can see you have made a small error!

Now - here is the corrected version.........

'Retro Gamer pays homage to the greatest 8-bit computer ever made'


Now, could you please change it before others notice this embarrising mistake.

Thank you



:lol: :P

If you're right, he's going to need to change the picture on the cover for one of a Spectrum.

Ahh, the good ol' C64! Never had a 'proper' one, but we did have a C128 which we used as a C64. It was the first machine I ever touched, loved and of course played games on! In fact, had it not been for the C64, I wouldn't have any interest in computers and gaming whatsoever! :D
