New interview here - http://www.retrovideogamer.co.uk/rvg-in ... -iain-lee/

Seems well into his retro again.

And...he's making his RG column comeback? That's great news. But we're not letting go on Paul Rose are we?

Either way, a pleasant surprise to see Iain back!

that's brilliant, I loved his column, always got a hearty chuckle to start off the mag which I do think is missed, I thought it made a big difference as it was the perfect start.

Yes, Iain Lee will be returning to the pages of RG in the near future. Paul's column will also continue to run in the magazine.

Great stuff. Sometimes the best thing you can do is take a break for a few years & then come back to something with renewed enthusiasm.

I find the love of retro & gaming in general comes in waves & it's great when you get the buzz back.

Thats great - originally Iain Lee didn't sit that well with me for some reason, and then I saw him on that TV program "Come Dine With Me" and I realised I had the complete wrong impression of him, and loved his columns after that. Awesome to have him back!

You never see him in Thumb Bandits, or his documentary, Thumb Candy? He's very much a gamer with a love for retro.

Not a fan of his show on Absolute Radio, but when he talks games he's good. I put that down to him doing whatever he needs to do to keep working, it's an odd job if you're in the lower leagues of celebrity.

He was a host at one of the early Play Expos in Blackpool and couldn't have been nicer, seemed to enjoy the experience and was a good fit for the show.

Thumb Candy is on YouTube if you fancy having a look. It's a good watch.

I can't believe he gave away his entire collection. I bet the fella who picked all that up couldn't believe his luck!! If only he'd have offered it to the Forum!
