30 years ! Blimey. Remember walking into a shop in Reading 30 years ago to buy Knight Lore, only seems like yesterday ! A classic game for its time.

Hopefully get a mag review from Darran soon

The last mag I actually read was issue 98, so I guess I had better catch up

Now THAT is what a Retro Gamer cover should look like :D Even a hardened C64 man like me knows what a classic that Speccy game was.

Although from the cover - I'll be not so interested in the Gameboy and Strider articles... but am looking forward to the Tau Ceti and the Ballblazer articles :)

I LOVE Gameboy games so i'm looking forward to that list. Hopefully there'll be a couple of games i havent tried much before so i'll give those a go.

Hopefully the mag will be arriving tomorrow

Get in, just turned up....

Love the cover, again i like the little touches like Day 126 (obviously the issue number) on the screenshot
Glad to see RG are covering the whole Elite controversy in the news
Knight Lore - looking forward to reading this, a classic game when it came out, hard as nails though !
Ballblazer - Never was a huge fan but looks interesting, need to give this another go
Strider - The last article made me dig up this old classic again
Wonderswan - Good to see this get a bit of love, has some decent games on it
Knights of the Sky -Never played this back in the day, looks alright
Real Time Strategy - Looks interesting, was a huge C&C fan back in the day
Best 25 Gameboy games - I like lists ! Plus i love the mono Gameboy, shall go through this to see if i've missed any gems, glad the underated Monster Max is featured
The Scene Kings - Never was a fan of the demo scene, i'll give this a go though, seems interesting how they got together
Amstrad Games that time forgot - Probably a short article ;)
Pete Cooke Interview - Good stuff, Speccy legend
Retro roundup - Glad the dire Dungeon Keeper remake on iOS is slated, shame Gunslugs didnt score higher

Next months looks good, when arcades ruled (think we need far more of arcade coverage in RG), Jack the Nipper, Intellivision, Commander Keen, Playstation Gems and more.

A good article for me personally, love that cover!

awesome cover, looks like the cover was so good they didn't bother trying out any alternatives this month!

my copy only arrived 10 mins ago so not had a read yet but with Knight Lore, Gameboy, Strider, Pete Cooke, Ballblazer, it looks a very strong issue.

arcade feature next month should be brilliant, good to see Double Dragon being chosen for the image but it should have been where Ikari Warriors is!

Got my copy today, this issue is packed with good stuff, think i'll read the Wonderswan article first, always wondered about that system.

Good to see a follow up on the Ellite debacle, strange though, Lost Dragons and part of my post have be edited together from the poll thread.

:? My copy has arrived.I honestly cannot even remember what i posted in the Elite thread, take our 2 comments have become one when appearing in the mag?-Yep looks like they have.Hmmn.

Anywho, looking forward to the Ballblazer, Strider, Unconverted, WonderSwan, Minority Report, Knights Of The Sky, RTS articles.All screaming Me! Me!.

CPC Games That Time Forgot think i'm going to love, as very keen to read on 'lost games' and kudos for V. Chronicles as Future Classic!.

Pete Cooke interview looks sweet as well.

Magazine 'feels' nice and heavy this month as well.Looks like a great issue.1st for a while for myself with a lot of content i'm thinking i won't find too familar.Great stuff...
