You own a lot of games. You own a lot of games twice. But you always have a good reasons and if you can't think of one quick enough here's 7 reasons you've bought the same game twice... or more.

The next, next generation was here, but the Dreamcast was dead in under 2 years. While we trying to work out just what the bloody hell happened, the gaming heaven is a very un-Dreamcast game and the Gaming Heaven is a legend in disguise. And elsewhere, the most infamous magazine coverdisk of all time.

I hope they did!

But meanwhile...

Epic are bigger than your deity of choice these days but back in the day they were a small independent developer/publisher called Epic Megagames. And one of those games they published is a forgotten template for much of the best of modern gaming - Traffic Department 2192

Thanks man!

The Master System did full 3D three decades before VR was mainstream but recreating that experience now requires expensive custom glasses, 8 rare games cartridges and an early model of the machine. Or, you could just watch Yesterzine with your common as dirt red/blue glasses...

I never post in these threads because most You Tube channels are censored but a) yours is really good and b) you are a long standing member of this community.

Also describing the SMS as history's greatest console goes a LONG way with me.

Then you will absolutely appreciate something I'm recording tonight for mid-April ;)

242/267 UK releases currently...


Meanwhile...

CDs! The new thing! Unimaginable amounts of storage for your magazine cover disk which... we then realised we had no idea how to fill. PC Format launched their cover CD in mid-1994, see how they put enough on it to justify the extra quid on the cover price. While we do that, enjoy a strategy gaming heaven whose demo fitted on 1/3rd of a floppy disk and a point and click gaming hell that serves as an instructional video in the worst possible way.

Us retro gamers play new games too, just sometimes they're on old systems. 4 excellent such games have been released recently on the Master System by French Publisher 2Minds. So I called up fellow Master System fan Bloggo's Pow and introduced him to them.

When any youtuber talks about the last game for a system they are almost certainly lying to you. Depending on where you live, the last "Master System game" was between 1989 and 1998. But actually there's at least 10 new things for 2021 you can run on your Master System right now. Here they are...

Damn straight, there's some good stuff this year too.

--

Christmas 1988, the Spectrum at the height of its powers. But Sinclair under Amstrad is still Sinclair and the gun is pointed firmly at the foot. The Gaming Heaven is the final game of a legendary trilogy with a lot to live up to. The gaming hell is a forgotten twin stick shooter without the twin stick. Elsewhere the 3rd most famous Pepsi themed game turns licencing on its head.

I found a cheap Chinese knock-off cartridge on ebay promising 25 things I can't read and a movie whose game never reached the Mega Drive. I showed the listing to Bloggo from Bloggo's Pow and he did the only sane thing, bought one too so we could discover it together.

You join us one Friday night as we boot them up for the first time blind...

The third famous Amiga games magazine had its critics, most notably the other 2 Amiga games magazines but was it really so bad? In its defence an interactive game about movies, an interactive movie that may or may not be a game and a football game that may or may not be interactive or even in fact exist at all.
