Looks good - I love anything in the mag by Romero - his insights and stories are always fun to read. What is the Banjo Kazooie article about? It would be awesome to be a making-of

Any idea of when the magazine is going to be made available via the Retro Gamer app?
I can't wait to read it, and the app is the only means in Canada.

It's a look at the entire series. A full making of the original game was in issue 36.

Ah, one of the 20 issues I don't have - I will have to look it up on the Load #1 disc sometime.

Been looking forward to the FPS feature, and rest on the mag looks like it'll be a good read :)

My issue arrived yesterday, most looking forward to reading the FPS and Banjo-Kazooie articles.

The Atari 7800 article should be an interesting read it's a machine I've never really known much about (despite owning one for a short while)

Hi there, the digital version normally goes onto the app as UK retailers receive print copies. For issue 132, that date is this Thursday (14/08/2014).

I would like to read an GX4000 article. With only around 30 games released the article could possible include a look at all of them. Plus the machine was actually rather good although it appeared too late and the games over priced.

A very readable issue. The strongest article for me was the Atari one, very interesting.

I'm not sure everyone on here will like the Atari articles.... but I think its great!
We're kind of running out of Atari hardware now, so don't expect any in the next few issues.
Before this turns into a 'not more Atari' thread - please read what Darran said on page 1 of this thread.

Did you want an article on Steve Davis then clarance?

I've have been requested to alter this post based on suspected negative intentions , that were actually based on a real suggestion on snooker games based on a technical merit and feature in a future issue of the magazine, but have now altered this message to refrain from an insult or intimidation to staff or another member of retro gamer forum.

I am a professional and don't wish to appear to be lowering myself or belittling any threats on this forum, I will keep any suggestions and ideas to myself as it appears free will of speech is frowned upon.

Apologies to anyone who has been offended, that was not my intentions at all :)

Take care

Darren.

No he's deliberately baiting kieren and has until I get into work to remove the image or will be banned.

Make it so :D
I personally love anything that they can get Archer Mclean to talk about as well as loving the more technical details behind software - I think that would be a great angle, so seconded!

You know full well this isn't true. Please edit it or you'll be receiving a ban as well.
