Surely it isn't just me that sees the irony in this thread being the most active one in Off Topic...
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

It is, seems to be mirroring the actual magazine pretty well.

quality of the paper and printing is horrific at the moment.

I just bought issue 200 after a break of a couple of years. The paper quality may have dropped, but I'm glad the mag is still going.
Thoughts and prayers.

Now and again. I still have the JP ones, but I sold most of my PAL ones. Currently have two JP machines and a model 2 PAL.

I have my Raspberry Pi4 4GB running the QT port of Yabause, so I'm able to emulate most Saturn games.
Thoughts and prayers.

Me too, I just bought 200 after a very long break from the mag (trust me, you don't wanna know how long)

I think life has just gotten in the way, but when you see a Turrican soundtrack..... what are you gonna do? ;)

I am glad the mag is still going very strong though.

Well, it has been in the go for over 14 years. It's understandable.

Maybe the forum should be a retro article in the mag. A lot of the people here, including the editor, were in a lot of other forums way before this one.
