Some places we like to
hang out. All warm and fuzzy like.
The RetroVision events are the brainchild
of our own Mark Rayson. The project brings together retrogamers,
original retro machines, curry and beer. Mark has conjured the
RV dream into life four times, over the previous two years, now.
The next RV... well that one might just be a bit special.
Jeff Minter begat Llamasoft, Llamasoft
begat gaming-history, gaming-history begat. Oh, hang on, bugger,
I'm going backwards. What I'm trying to say is that this is the
home of, umm, oh God I'm not sure really. Well, it's a forum,
its special, and WotR
was born there.
Malcolm Laurie's excellent shoot-em-up
game site. If it scrolls, and there's shooting, then it's either
reviewed, or talked about, here. Very active, very welcoming,
retro-gaming forum too.
Download subversive ringtones for your, Gunner la de daaa, mobile phone. We're not on a bung this time - we just love the stupid, stupid brilliant stuff on there. Marvel to such tunes as Lionel Wonder's "I Just Called To Say Hello" and the peerless Sitar Wars. Fantastic.
As Gus himself says: 'Here you will find
thoughtful essays, personal writings and offbeat reviews based
upon our individual experiences as gamers.' They think like us,
they write like a dream, it's all good.
A beautifully constructed, off-beat, videogame
culture site. Raina Lee and her team of contributers create wonderful
'real paper' magazines. Order yours as soon as you can - they
go like hot cakes.
The home of Gordon Houghton, former editor
of former games mag Zzap!64. If you ever cared about Zzap!64,
and you miss it, this is the place to visit. Take a look at Gordon's
novels too, that boy can write.
Joe Santulli knows videogames. Digital
Press is the
reference site for retro, and also home to one of the most active
retro forums on the web. Joe's crowning glory is his book: 'The
Collectors Guide' - the stunning, videogame collectors' bible.
Really useful import gamers site. Worth looking at for its 'Guide
to Japanese' alone. Home to an excellent forum too.
David Tolley says this of his labour-of-love:
"Thousands of people bought these magazines month in, month
out - it'd be criminal to forget them (I also hope it'll be a
great nostalgia trip for anyone who has fond memories from this
