Jag feast has an article in issue 105 so it's going to be interesting to see how his "how nintendo saved gaming will go down*
In fairness I said he was trying to troll. :wink:

It will go down like Mario on Princess Peach . . . .

Maybe that's TMI!!! :lol:

I'm hoping the Atari ST article is spread over several pages. More to nitpick over that way ;)

Really looking forward to that having been an ST owner.

The forum has generated some great freelancers for the mag. I wonder if other mags involve their readers to that extent?

:lol: Meeow!

Given that the recent Virtual Boy feature amounted to six pages then an ST article would warrant about one hundred pages!

I really hope that you enjoy it reading it as much as I did writing it.

And feel free to nitpick away when you do, feedback is always good :wink:

In what crazy world could the Fallout games ever be considered loot drop games?

Given your track record for repeatedly stating everything Atari ever did, Paperboy excepted, was awful it is somewhat surprising you find the current issue of RG so "fantastic".
Well it just goes to show that even topics covering the biggest detritus can be an interesting read if covered well.

In the crazy world of the writer. You should visit it. I hear it's a pretty crazy place.

Sword & Sworcery especially, although I doubt the mag will cover this now. Even if the mag wrote about this right now, the PC release would be a few months old by the time the mag hits the shelves, and the original iOS release would be 15 months old by that point. Still, Superbrothers are working on something new at the moment, so perhaps that'll be of interest to the mag.

Ok so that one fair enough.. but FEZ and Trials should be reviewed.. Trials is a kickstart (c64) clone basically, and also is a sequel to an old pc game.. and if FEZ isnt considered retro enough to feature in the mag then I truely give up, after all Bit.Trip runner was reviewed based on it's retro aesthetics an that is a new game.

Also Dragon's Lair is now out on XBLA so I assume that will be covered.. as also would the new SEGA Vintage Collections on there too.

I love retro gaming and play 8-bit games on hardware / emulators regularly but I also love the new games that look, sound, and most importantly FEEL like retro games, but can offer so much more due to the powerful hardware and online stuff we have today!
