Not including a few f-words is watering a magazine down? Where does it say I'm a "he"? That's if you mean "he's".
Did I say it was?
I never read it cover to cover myself. I didn't say my 7 year old read it either. Do you read to your 7 year old? I'm not sure how your point about other gaming mags is relevant to my family.antsbull wrote: ↑Fri Feb 08, 2019 5:38 pmI'm going to call you out on that one - its extremely unlikely your 7 year old would be reading an RG mag, and if they did they'd probably be bored after the first half page and put it down. I've got a 7 year old myself who is into gaming, and loves watching me retro game and he also reads gaming mags (Minecraft etc), and wouldn't touch an RG mag.F*** wrote: ↑Sat Feb 02, 2019 12:38 pmI won't buy the magazine again. I've been getting my 7 and 9 year old into retro gaming and I first bought Retro Gamer at their request. I haven't read every article but what I have read has been a safe read.
Then my daughter asks why an article "has so many bad words?" There are THREE f-bombs in a short interview with The Oliver Twins. I don't remember them swearing on their YouTube videos or reading f-bombs in interviews I've read with them before. They add nothing to the context either:
"anything you f*** around with is a waste." - "mess" around
Word not even necessary:
"there's a f***ing great big picture of Dizzy"
"it was a lot f***ing harder"
F*** off Retro Gamer.
Got anything better than that?
