The homebrew section needs to be expanded definitely.. with every nook and cranny of the last 30 years of gaming pretty much covered from all angles by RG over the last 102 issues (wink) the mag needs to cover retro gaming from a new perspective.. there is only so much you can read about the speccy / c64 etc etc. after all.
being a Retro gamer isnt just about playing old games, but games that hold on to the look, playability, and spirit of the games of yesteryear.
I recommend going here:http://www.tigsource.com/http://www.indiedb.com/
for a start
yes there is a lot of tat made with a retro feel.. but there are some truely epic games that have the playability of a mario title and the graphics of a nes / c64 / speccy game.
Hack Slash Loot
Abbey Des Mortes
just to name a few.
Dont go down the route of covering too many of the indie games on the xbox as most of them are utter garbage, with only one or two exceptions that stand out as truely 'good' - Escape Goat and Cursed Loot for example.
A good coverage of whats happening in the indie scene would be enough, the hottest remakes released / in progress, the best homebrew titles on older systems (like the psytronix releases for the c64) and battlekid / super bat punch on NES.
It needs to be carefully as I think the homebrew section currently is quite dull, with some dire flash-like xbox indies and some duff old atari / spectrum homebrew titles.. this doesnt do much for the indie / homebrew scene and so there does need to be a big shakeup.
It will be great to see new retro games in the mag and please ignore all the sad old farts who censored and moan just because they want to see screenshots of Manic Miner month after month after month while getting all teary-eyed thinking about the 'good old days'.
RETRO GAMING IS ABOUT SPIRIT NOT RELEASE DATE!!!!
