    Retro Gamer is the greatest magazine ever! Its just brilliant and I always find interesting stuff out in it that I've never had known before. This months issue is great too with a amazing indepth look at Symphony of the Night and the Wonderswan. Its one of those magazines that you wont throw away as its great to pick up back issues (its also worth quite a lot on ebay too)Its the only mag nowadays that has a decent cover and decent designs in its pages, kinda reminds me of the old days with Zzap and Crash.

    Just wondered if anyone else read it too.

    I loved the article they they in the latest one about "hardcore collectors". The type that would collect beta/prototype games like.... MOTHER 3 FOR THE N64.

    Well you can subscribe online, will cost you £80 for 13 issues. Which is a lot seeing its £45 for UK readers, this is probably why a lot of people get issues off ebay.

    Dude you have no idea, 40 pounds for translation from British English to American English? We should sue the magazine for making translators work overtime and underpayed.

    And, hypothetically speaking, where would one seek out those elusive .pdf's?
