Introducing RETRO Magazine

Recommended Posts

Hi, everyone

I just got the Premiere issue (Jan/Feb 2014) of RETRO Magazine that was on Kickstarter Funding (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/socalmike/retro-the-multi-format-throw-back-video-game-magaz) last year. I was a Kickstarter supporter for the new magazine. It looks good so far, lots of retro gaming in there for classic enthusiasts, but also has modern gaming too. The cover and paper stock are very high quality. I suggest you support RETRO for being the only retro-based, print video game magazine in the U.S by subscribing at their web site here: http://www.readretro.com You can preview the first issue, subscribe, and contact the publishers. They are still working on it and will launch the site with full-fledge gaming news, reviews, and previews soon. But I'm very excited for RETRO. I hope they will be around for years to come.

Just got a copy of RETRO and I'm really enjoying it so far. That was an interesting interview with Ed Semrad about the early days of EGM, I had no idea the amount of work he put into traveling to foreign game shows and getting those screen captures for the magazine.

Yeah boy, I enjoyed the issue as well. It's so awesome reading about classic games like the Battle of Olympus for NES article. I never even played that game. Sounds like I got to collect it now! :-) But the writing in RETRO are also great, very funny and enlightening at the same time. The staff seems to have done their research and are knowledgeable about the gaming industry (past and present) in general. The paper quality is even higher than the modern EGM. So it's very collectible and will last decades to come. It's not very thick (page count, but then what video game magazine is thick these days?); but otherwise, it feels a lot like EGM back in the day.
