Yes... yes you probably would be :lol: :wink:
I'd read it . I remember them being in the shops but that's about all I know about them .
They were massive in Japan for a while, but pretty much sank without trace in the West. I suppose it must just be one of those cultural things.

Just discovered there was actually a BB and a BB model 2!

I'm not being ironic when I say I find that fascinating.
The second one was only out in Japan, and was white, if I remember?

Vic 20 - I got one recently and it's a great machine. Very lovable.
ZX81 - we don't see this much
Atari 400/800 - ditto
Oric - hasn't been seen in a while

PS - I haven't read the 4 most recent issues of rg so apologies if there's, say, a 30 page feature on the ZX81 in the most recent issue.

The Neo Geo AES/MVS. More coverage of 1990s arcade games in general would be great.

You are joking right. The saturn is probably one of the few consoles that now gets universal love. Hardly anyone says a bad thing about it.

The Commodore Plus/4 is the first computer I didn't have to share with my brother so I would love to see a feature on that.

Like a lot of people I bought it thinking it would play C64 games but the Plus/4 version of Saboteur showed that it was capable of some great stuff in its own right.
