When i first found out about retro gamer i immediately subscribed late last year – and you haven’t disappointed. i have this (slightly weird) ritual of smelling the inside pages of your magazine when i open it as it reminds me of the gaming magazines i would buy as a kid (nostalgia and all).
in June’s edition you touched on something close to my heart, the Sega mega drive. i still remember the time when i first saw a mega drive at my mate’s house (in Sydney, australia by the way)… it wowed me and i knew immediately i needed to get one. Given it followed me from childhood all the way into my teen years – whilst i have owned many consoles – this one holds a very special place in my heart, so i really appreciated your article and the great level of detail you went into putting it together.
your article inspired me so much i finally finished my Sega wall ‘mural’ in my apartment! nick Prodanovic
we’re glad to hear you enjoyed the mega Drive feature, nick. also, we like how you’ve decorated there! Drew especially will appreciate the presence of sparkster – as he’s a big lover of Rocket Knight. we’re all players who want to share our passion for classic games, so thank you for sharing – it’s great to know we played any part in inspiring something cool like that.
We love these bead sprites, backed with scenes from the games.
