Hello Retromags! New user here and this sight looks amazing but figured I'd say hey first.

Recommended Posts

I wanted to see some of the old magazines I bought as a kid and came across Classic Gaming Quarterly "Lets Read" YT series and he mentioned this site.  What a goldmine! 

I 'm really fond of the early-mid 90's PC DOS and Sega Genesis stuff.  I forgot about that cartoon-face rating system and one of my funniest memories from those mags was calling one of the 1-900 Hint lines and wasting 90$ on the line for what had to be less than an hour.  My pops was not happy about that but I learned my lesson.  

I still play mainly Genesis these days and really want to pick up one of those Mega SGs.  Mac doesn't afford me too much in modern gaming but Dosbox/Boxer works great.  I'm looking forward to re-living the print media part of the nostalgia and maybe finding a physical copy of something I had again as a kid.

Cheers! - Octo

I can count all the Genesis games I've ever played on one hand, but early 90's DOS PC games get me in the feels.  Welcome to RM!

Welcome to the site! I was wondering when the first person would post in here after the video of him reading my copy of GamePro Celebrity Gamers. We had an uptick in visitors after that video went up, but you are the first to sign up and say hello :)

 Honestly, that Let's Read video series would have been perfect for this site to do, but I don't know who here would have the time to do it.
