On the topic of magazines......

I've got to check but I may have the following is you wanted them for the Museum....

Official Sega Dreamcast magazine including all Demo Disk's - I think I have every issue but not sure exactly how many.

I also have quite a lot of early EDGE magazines - possibly most, if not all, of the first 40. (I think I have the infamous 3DO feathers issue complete with feathers)

Hopefully I'll have chance to look over the next few days to confirm exact numbers.

Let me know if your interested.

Yeah - always interested in reference material. There will be a place in the museum for that as well!

I've been hunting in  my loft!!!!

I've found Official Dreamcast Magazine's issues 1 to 20....Can't find demo disc's though.

Do you want them? I could bring them to the Open Day or get them to you sooner if you want.

Sorry but I can't find any of my Edge magazines!!! Might be back in Birmingham at my dad's as I know I have a few things still there.

I also found a box of Speccy games i was given that I'd never looked at. Oh well guess that means I'll have to get the +128 out and play them all.....Just to check that are all ok of course! They include Alien8, Manic Minor, Jet Set Willy The Hobbit to name a few.....I also found the cover tape from ACE issue 1!!!!! for both spectrum and Commodore. must see if that works!

@billdooruk

Yep they would be a nice thing to have! The Open Day would be fine to get them if that is okay with you!

Have fun playing the speccy games - i know i still do!

Hello all,
Just had my new issue of Retro Gamer . . . and guess what . . . we are NOT in there? Don't know why yet? I have emailed Darran to find out what is going on . . . to say I am disappointed is an understatement!

Sorry guys!

RIGHT!

Issue 56 of Retro Gamer is now out! and guess what?


WE ARE IN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sorry! Im a little over excited! A friend of mine (Boyo) who organised Retro Fusion earlier this year introduced me properly to Darran Jones (from Retro Gamer) earlier this month. He introduced me through messenger and I now have Darran's email etc. We got chatting and he said that we would probably not be in this month again due to space but he has put us in anyway! For those of you who do have the magazine . . . we are on page 107 a the very top right hand side! Coool!
