And you had the temerity to call me "a massive troll"! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Darran@Retro Gamer wrote:Actually. The more I think about it the more I like the idea of an alternate view on classic games. Didn't edge do something similar recently?
Glad to see you're coming round to the idea so soon. :D

That'd be a fair dig... if it wasn't for the many, many times I've posted extremely positive feedback in this sub-forum regarding numerous articles in RG.

In fact, one of the magazine's writer's sent me a PM quite recently thanking me for my kind words of appreciation with him saying what I'd posted helped make it all worthwhile. :D

And yet you condemn this article and the editorial staff purely because it expressed opinions that differed from yours.

Do you only like writing that aligns with your own point of view?
HADDOCKEN!

Yes. Had it been an eight-page Kick Off feature that DIDN'T criticise it, would you be complaining?

Are you sure about that?
Yes, I most likely would. Did you not see the Feedback thread discussion of issue 101's 'Collector's Guide' on NES?

No, the one that was published.

Okay, so I'm confused, then. If it's okay to have opinions that differ from yours, what IS it that you're complaining about? I've totally lost track. There are no factual inaccuracies in the piece, it's a series clearly worthy of coverage for the reasons laid out in the feature, and my opinion is different from yours but that's fine. So can you spell out what the problem is?

I've said what I wished to say on the matter already. Just as certain other people have here. It's all there in the thread.

You may not agree but that's fine.
