2004 Retro Amiga Article

About 2 months ago i was at a flea market with my GF and i stumbled across a guy selling a heap of old magazines and amongst them was a 193 page Retro gaming magazine as well. It covers virtually every system and gives its overall view on what they think are the 6 best games for that system. So i just thought i would scan and share the Amiga side of it.

It doesnt say all that much, but its still great to see it.

BTW - Sorry for the final picture not being too visible on the edge. I had to scroll the magazine around and i didnt want to push it to far down for fear of tearing the glue holding the pages together.

Yeah i was doing a re-edit of the scans to make them larger because they appeared smaller and kinda unreadable on EAB. Ive reposted them but again same problem, so i cut and pasted what i had posted up and had a look to see how they would appear when saved seperately and they appear to be smaller again.

It seems to me that EAB automatically resizes them!?.. So if anyone wants them to be emailed to them, just let me know

Oooh, looks like an interesting read. I must have missed that at the time. I'd appreciate an email if you don't mind. My address is my EAB username @ gmail.com

I think it's 7.16 rather than 216.

Roll eyes (sarcastic) Very reminiscent to the Retro-section in Games TM

I have bought every single issue of British magazine Games TM which has a retro section.
To my surprise the scans of Retro magazine are exactly the same as it once appeared in the retro-section of Games TM.

For anyone who is interested, the current issue of Games TM (issue 53 with the Metroid-cover) has the retro-section completely dedicated to the Amiga. It has some very, very interesting interviews with the creators of Worms and Another World. Probably the same articles can be found in a current edition of Retro magazine.
