  1. Just had a read of this magazine. Never heard of this mag before, but video games and comics are a great combination and this issue looks interesting. Thanks Ethereal Dragonz and MigJmz for this
  2. Really enjoyed looking at this magazine. Thanks for this Akane, great scan
  3. Thanks kitsunebi77 for this great scan. Loved looking through this magazine. I can't read the writing unfortunately but it's interesting to see the layout and the screen shots etc. I think a lot of the European and North American game magazines that I read back in the day were heavily influenced by Japanese mags such as this. Thanks again
  4. Thanks Phillyman and Melki. Going to read this after work today
  5. I really hope Nintendo manufacture way more Snes Mini's than they did Nes Mini's. I live in Ireland and the only Nes Mini's that I've seen are three boxed ones in a store called C.E.X. They're charging 215 euro's each for them and there's no way I'm going to pay that price. Anyway on the day that Nintendo announced the Snes Mini, I went in to my local Game Stop + and handed over 20 Euro's and pre ordered one. I was told that quite a few people had already pre ordered one before I got there so whether I'll get one or not I don't know but here's hoping
  6. There were only two Arcades in my City (Cork City, Ireland) when I was a teenager but both had a good selection of cabinets. I loved playing Out Run although I only had access to the stand up version and not the cool sit down deluxe cabinet. Other games I loved were Gauntlet, Star Wars, Hang-On and Enduro Racer. Even if I didn't have any spare cash to spend I'd often just go in to the Arcade and watch the attract screens of my favourite games as they looked so cool and were so much more impressive than what I was playing at home. There aren't any Arcades (either retro or current) in my area anymore but I've always got MAME
  7. Really going to enjoy reading this mag. Thanks a lot for this Melki!
  8. Just heard about this and its really sad. My heart goes out to his family and friends. I used to love watching him in "Mork and Mindy" as a kid and really liked a lot of his performances in many of his movies, particularly "Insomnia" and "One Hour Photo". A great stand up comedian and actor, he will be missed.
  9. I've been meaning to play "The Last of Us" for some time but It kind of went off my radar for a while. After reading your blog however I'm definitely going to check it out. It still hasn't dropped enough in price for me yet though, a second hand copy is around 35 euro's here in Ireland. Great blog
  10. Thanks a lot for these scans. I'm going to be playing Resident Evil 2 soon and I hope to buy Resident Evil 3 sometime in the future so these guide's are going to be a great help. Thanks again
  11. Although I am a big fan of Lara Croft and her pointy charms, I'd like to see Next Generation scanned next please
  12. Watching these trailers has put me in the Halloween spirit, I'll have to get around to choosing a suitably chilling game to play over Halloween. That Dragon Age: Origins trailer is truly epic, must check it out sometime Really like the Dead Island trailer too, it's clever and the music is really beautiful
  13. This looks interesting ShockSim, I'm looking forward to reading it.
  14. That Batman lunch box is pretty cool. I used to love watching re-runs of the old 60's Batman tv show with Adam West, as a kid. My favourite lunch box there is definitely the Peanuts one, very cool.
  15. Here are my Top 10 PS1 game's. 1. Tomb Raider 2 2. Tekken 3 3. Final Doom 4. Gran Turismo 2 5. Broken Sword 6. Madden 98 7. Metal Gear Solid 8. Duke Nukem 3D 9. ISS Pro Evolution Soccer 2 10. Wipeout 2097 I'm sure I've forgotten some other great PS1 game's that should be on this list but I can always change it later on.
  16. I've always loved the music in Super Metroid and Street Fighter 2. I'm playing Fallout 3 at the moment and I really like all the old song's that are played on Galaxy News Radio, especially the Billie Holiday song and also that song by the Ink Spots.
  17. Hey Areala.......hope you're back soon. :)

  18. Hope you can get your computer fixed Areala, this site isn't the same without you.
  19. I'm really sorry to hear about what's happening to your mom, KevinCal. It seem's like more and more families are being touched by this awful disease, including my own. I'm not very religious but I said a prayer for your mom and I hope it help's. I will be thinking of you and your mom and your family and I've no doubt that a lot of people here at Retromags will be doing the same.

    Comic Book Fans?

    I used to read 2000ad (a futuristic sci-fi comic from the u.k.) back in the day. This was such a great comic with some amazing character's like Judge Dredd. I used to read each issue over and over and count down the day's untill the next issue would be out. I haven't read 2000ad in years but maybe I'll check it out again just for old time's sake.
  21. Just read Next Generation January 1995. It's got a lot of good coverage on all the upcoming system's of the day and some cool arcade game articles too. Thanks nirv, great scan.
