You were moaning about it earlier, make your mind up.

I can think of several articles from Pixel Nation that have NEVER been in RG.

Hey I recognise the guy in the middle - it's that tennis coach Nick Bolletieri! So what was it like coaching Agassi, Nick?

Too sexy by far
And jdanddiet is too sexy for my Spectrum
Too sexy for my Spectrum what do you think about that

Just finished Issue one and its fantastic.. Ok so there is mistakes and some of the writing is not as flamboyant as some publications but who cares, this is a professional fan book as far as i am concered. Brilliant.

Unfortunately I have been banished from buying any more Pixel Nation books as my criticisms hit a nerve and were too harsh apparently.
If thats true, then it has to be the funniest thing of 2012 so far :)

Would welcome any further feedback or critique of the product .. we do listen, and we want to involve the community in the evolution of our lovely little books ( sorry .. bookazines ! )

One discussion point I wanted to throw out there, was to get some opinions on if people would like to see more Japanese-centric retro games coverage and articles in Pixel Nation going forward ? I know I would personally, but I wondered if others shared this opinion ?

Ta :D

Few new magazines available on U-Publish guys. First off is 3DO Kids 3DO Zero Magazine:

http://pixel-nation.co.uk/index.php/onl ... o-magazine

Next up is the 3rd issue of Retro Games News:

http://pixel-nation.co.uk/index.php/onl ... games-news

Thirdly is the 7th issue of PC Engine Gamer:

http://pixel-nation.co.uk/index.php/onl ... gine-gamer

Another entry to come in the next few days, but happy to say all the above are free! In talks with a few more fanzine makers and really pleased with the library we have started to build over there. We have a mix of paid and free content and the goal is to offer as much as possible in one central location, think its all coming together really well!

Undoubtedly a stupid question but does the £0.00 price mean it's a free download? I'd love me some more 3DO reading :)
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
