Just a not to say the new retro issue 3 is out, so get your skates on to snap up those issues before they all end up on ebay! £25 via buy it now already for issue 3 :?

If you are reading in England the best source of Retro goodness is Whsmiths who always have a good supply, got 2 issuew today for one of my m8`s.

Good luck

Mort :)

Yep its got articles on most of the old systems, Commodore 64, Pcengine,Vectrex,Neo Geo,Saturn,Megadrive,Famicom. Basically its the history of these machines and all the different games which are either rare or important to their respective historys, the 64 is stated to have a rather hobbiest fanbase rather than the elitist neogeo crowd! :lol: Who nees a neogeo anyway when you can play all the games on the xbox with a little pursuasion :wink:

True. Can't complain though, as I helped a bit on the C64 article ;)

Couldn't see it in my local W.H. Smug....

Though if it is just reprints of old features, I think I will pass on it anyway. Surely Future could do an all-new retro special like the first one? :roll:

As I don`t buy edge regularly, I didn`t know a lot of it was reprinted material, but I think its worthwhile anyway :-)

Ps just dug out all my Games Machines which were buried in the attic, anybody got any issues beyond 23 when mine stop ?

Got the mag today, I've gotten half way through it. It's an interesting read but I didn't learn anything new from the C= 64, it's a pity they didn't show screenshots of some newer C64 games (ie 1988+)

I did notice a credit to Mayhem alright! :)

It was partly about collecting for the machine, and I think you'll admit, most of the collectable stuff is earlish in the C64's life. I basically had an edit of the article, just checking for any errors and suggesting bits to put in. And doing the buyers guide and prices.
