The PS2 era Pro Evo series is the closest we have to the real thing.

Agreed.

Sad to see that pic of Daley Thompson in the back of the mag - he'd clearly been involved a punch up........how else did he get that white eye?

Changing the name to Chiptune Gamer was a bit over-the-top, though.

OK, I don't want to turn this off-topic, but I totally dig the name 'Chiptune Gamer' for a magazine :lol:

Another suggestion for new name.
Retro Gamer featuring Chiptune. :D

I can do that as well.
The fact is we tread carefully around last gen because so many forumites are sooooo precious about stuff. Particularly if it's not computer related.
In this case we just thought frick it, and did it anyway. Maybe we should start doing that a lot more in the future...
Personally I love the original xbox, and ten years is a long time in technology. I still use my xboxes (multiple), and the still impress when outputting via component video.

Please commission some articles on this great machine (and the gamecube). They're barely any younger than the Dreamcast, which gets plenty of love, and has done for a good long while in the magazine.

Well said, neuromancer, you beautiful, sensual man.

The Dreamcast made the cover and had a lot of features in, what was it, issue 50?

edit: indeed it was issue 50

https://www.imagineshop.co.uk/index.php ... ew/id/636/

I don't recall the Xbox ever gracing the cover, or the GameCube for that matter.

I'm not all 'last gen' or any-gen crazy. I grew up with the vcs, zx-81 and Speccy, but I love the atari 8-bit to death, I owned an St, megadrive (I love the 32X), but I now love the current gen as well.

Well, I've just finished reading this epic feedback thread (whilst reinstalling bloody sql 2008 four times, and visual studio 2010 once - yes, the thread was really really long).

Wow. just wow. I haven't seen a virtual punch-up on the forum in a long while. Last one I got involved in was a massive Atari 8-bit vs C64 'chat' some years back.

I had KO2, and Final Whistle, on the ST, and Sensi on the MD. A couple of days ago, after reading 'the article' I was chatting to a mate about Sensi vs Kick-off, but I had no idea that the piece had sparked so much passion on the feedback pages. I'd rather see some of this than a dull non-participatory forum any day. Stu's writing is always engaging, but has never enraged me (not so far, anyhow!)

Personally I found 104 to be a great issue, although I'd rather have seen the Skool Daze cover make the cut. Maybe it's time to get scanning and run another few rounds of 'best cover' polls?
