Sneak Peek At This Month's Retro Gamer Magazine #118

Retro-Gamer-Magazine-118Put down your joysticks and get ready to head on outside. The next issue of Retro Gamer Magazine is due to hit the shops this week, offering yet another month's supply of informative articles on our beloved hobby. Sporting a huge cover dedicated to the Flashback remake and cracking contents to compliment it, don't miss out on issue 118.

Within the pages of this latest issue is an extensive interview and discussion with Paul Cuisset, the man behind the original Flashback title. Not only does Cuisset talk about his colourful past and the game which immortalised his status in the gaming world, but also the upcoming HD remake and future plans for the game's protagonist.

Elsewhere within the magazine this month is a huge feature on the thirty years of the Nintendo NES / Famicom, Retro Gamer's Top 25 Sega Mega Drive games, the history of Capcom's fantastic thriller Dino Crisis, and a lovely making of article on the under-loved point 'n' click classic Flight of the Amazon Queen.

I'm looking forward to reading the Mastertronic article! I recall that a great article appeared in (I think) the first issue of RG... it was great in terms of the games covered and the sales charts. The Flashback article seals the deal :-)
