Happy 100 and still stronger than ever but just a few questions... Can we have more Atari stuff, cover mounts back please, what ever happend to the schimatics of the hardware reviewd, more Atari, can we have some future classics i've actually heard of, more Atari stuff, what is Retro, and when are the softporn adverts coming back, oh and did I mention more Atari please.

My 1 and only Mag (as I now get all my porn on tinternet thingy) :shock:

I've not been reading the magazine long but you can tell pretty quickly that it is quality. You don't get to 100 issues (and beyond!) either without being a great mag. I also haven't subscribed to anything else for about 14 years now so that is quite a testament.

Well done boys!

Well done RG! Congratulations on an excellent 100 issues of quality retro reading! Another 35 and you'll have had more issues than any of the Speccy mags! Now lets see if you can stick around longer than CVG... :mrgreen:

To celebrate this event I shall wear my favourite Y-fronts for 100 Days.

I will bath in then on a regular basis, to ensure they dont get too Krusty.

A massive thank you to Retro Gamer for re-igniting my love of gaming and taking me into gaming directions I wouldn't have dreamt of before. Its been quite a journey. Thank you, you've done us gamers proud. . . and I've left a celebratory glass to you all for your efforts.

Congratulations on the big 100 RG. Thank you for the fascinating articles, dedication, those lost stories of gaming past, and most importantly listing to your readers. I really do feel like it's our magazine.

A milestone issue for a milestone magazine. No other magazine celebrates the past in such a relevant way.
Have been a subscriber since issue 4 and have enjoyed something or learnt something from every one of the 100 issues. Awesome work! Long may it continue.
Sometimes you need to say what needs saying, most times you just need to shut up and listen.

Congratulations on reaching issue 100. Retro Gamer, for me, has been something worth looking forward to reading every month.

The quality of journalism in the magazine is excellent, compared to all other British magazines and we can all feel proud of this. I have noticed often on visits to the US in recent years, how (in Barnes and Noble stores) Retro Gamer is on display, showing true quality, rather than the tat which most British magazines unfortunately are.

Once again, many thanks to everyone involved for their hard work.

Cheers,

Rich

I never would have thought all those years ago when I picked up RG issue 2 in WH Smiths that it would foster not just a hobby, but also a whole community. It also encouraged me to put on the Retro Reunited show that was the precursor to Replay Expo and later to form Replay Events. So thanks RG, you have given us a centrepiece to the fabulous retro community and have helped me turn a bit of fun into a thriving business!

That moment when the magazine drops through the letter box on a saturday morning still gets me excited......issue 100 will be even more so.
