This might read like an hidden advert but I am over the moon about a new gamesmagazine on print which can be bought at your newsagent: Games TM
. OK, the site still looks s**t but the mag is great.
It is a multi-format mag looking very similar to videogamesmagazine Edge
but with a difference: besides the usual reviews of new 3D games it has a HUGE retro-section covering anything:
How and where to buy your second-hand NeoGeo console and C64s, history of 3D-FPS, A hilarious Miami Vice
(C64) vs. GTA Grand Turismo
(PS2) article, ZX Spectrum explained, History of Zzap!,
why Zool 2
is crap in comparison to Mario Brothers
and so on and so on.
seems perfectly suited for people interested in todays games but who also have a soft spot for old school systems. Despite its high price (10 Euro) I sincerely hope this mag will attract many (retro) gamers. At least I am convinced.
