I saw Retro Gamer issue 1 when it first came out and thought 'why bother?', so I left it until I finally decided to buy issue 8. Oh what an idiot I was missing issues 1-7! Great mag! Subscribed a few issues later, but it's back to buying in shops for a little while before I subscribe again (I only have a Visa Electron card - Live accepted it but not Imagine).

The only coverdisks I liked were the ones that were full of games by one publisher (i.e. Gremlin).

Bought it since issue 1 when I saw it in my local newsagents and got all of the Live issues.

Issue 1 from one of the main WH Smiths in Aberdeen. Gave it a month to see if the mag would survive, bought issue 2 from the shop and subscribed from issue 3.

I really didn't think I'd see another issue after the first...

Issue 1 - thought it was okay and loved the Mastertronic feature. Felt that lots of space was wasted and, flicking through it now, still feel the same. The layout on the 'Ten Of The Best' for Nintendo, Amstrad etc was very poor - all gloss and little depth.

But hell, that's a first issue for you. It's come on leaps and bounds since then and I think it's a great mag at the moment.

For a short while when it disappeared off the shelves, I thought it had done an 'Arcade' on me (another magazine I enjoyed and had started collecting).

Long live Retro Gamer!
