Nice one Koops! :o

Yeah - got it, and i must say 'what an excellent read' :D

RF & RG compliment each other - when you finish reading one, there isn't a whole month before you get to read more retro!

Well done Boyo. :D

You got it yet Darren? (that's a genuine question).

Good .It looks more like a fanzine than a magazine at the moment

I'm planning to pick it up an actual copy tomorrow.

Actually, now I've seen it on the shelves that logo looks awefully familiar...

I bought it on Saturday. They had just put them on the shelves and I immediately grabbed a copy. They hadn't input the magazine into the system yet, so I had to wait 10 minutes while the guy tried to get the thing to register. He eventually gave up and gave me change when someone else went in the til.

Great magazine. I've only read one or two pages so far. I enjoyed the A team article and the various stories at the back of the mag.

Liked the Star Wars feature (then again I like anything to do with Star Wars!)

Thought the game loading feature was quite good also

Got it Saturday and its excellent. Straight away you know your onto a good thing with the fanzine feel to it. Its funny and i dont feel outta my depth reading it. And as David Dickison would say its Cheap as Chips folks. So as with good wines hopefully it will just keep getting better with age.
