Retro Gamer Issue 179 Hits The Shelves!

Retro Gamer Issue 179 Hits The Shelves!

Issue 179 of Retro Gamer is rolling into newsagents, with two fantastic gifts that will please any fan of the Commodore 64. The C64 Remix CD features 12 classic tunes reimagined from their original SID incarnations, with the likes of Matt Gray, Marcel Donné and Chris Abbott remixing Rob Hubbard, Martin Galway and more – see the bottom of this post for the full track list. There’s also a double-sided poster, featuring a nostalgic Commodore 64 scene on one side and a selection of fantastic artwork from the late Bob Wakelin on the other.

Inside the magazine, you’ll find two great features on Pac-Man. In the first, Tod Frye talks about his Atari 2600 conversion of the classic arcade game, and the highs and lows that came with it. In the second, we delve into the late-Eighties arcade sequel Pac-Mania and all of its home conversions in an Ultimate Guide. Elsewhere in the magazine, you’ll find the making of home computer hits Dark Star and Moonstone as well as the hit Disney licensed platformer Aladdin. Additionally, there’s a collector’s guide to Quicksilva games, a look at the BBC Micro’s excellent arcade clones and a Minority Report on import Dreamcast games.

You’ll also find an Ultimate Guide to Konami’s lighthearted shoot-’em-up Parodius, a history of Sonic The Hedgehog’s outings on the Master System. As always the issue is capped off with a sit-down interview, with this month’s subject being Gregg Mayles – a veteran game designer at Rare whose work includes Battletoads, Donkey Kong Country, Banjo-Kazooie, Viva Pinata and the current hot Xbox One game Sea Of Thieves. Of course, that’s not all – as always, plenty more games are featured in Retro Revivals, The Unconverted, Classic Moments, Lost In Translation and Back To The Noughties.

You can find the magazine at all good newsagents from Thursday 22 April 2018, or order online via My Favourite Magazines. If you prefer a digital copy, you can find it via the Apple App Store, Google Play, Zinio, Pocketmags or Readly.

V-Rally Slides Back Into Racing Game Competition

Racing game enthusiasts of a certain vintage will remember the V-Rally series, a trio of rather good rally games launched in the late Nineties and early Noughties on platforms including PlayStation, N64. Dreamcast, PS2, Xbox, GameCube, PC and Game Boy Advance. The last one was the reasonably received V-Rally 3 in 2002-2003, and the series subsequently disappeared without a trace amidst publisher problems.

So, we’re surprised to tell you that V-Rally will return to the V-Road in 2018. V-Really? V-Right. The new game is being published by Bigben Interactive and developed by Kylotonn Racing Games. The latter company actually has a connection to the classic series too, as the game director Alain Jarniou was a programmer on V-Rally 3.

So far, we know that V-Rally 4 will be available for PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC in September 2018. It’ll have 50 cars and game modes including Rally, Extreme-Khana, V-Rally Cross, Buggy and Hill Climb, as well as Online and Career modes. Take a look at the trailer above for a first look at the game, and lets us know if you’re excited on the forum or via social media.

Replay Events Announces Play Expo London

Replay Events Announces Play Expo London

UK fans of retro gaming will undoubtedly be familiar with Play Expo – the events, held by Replay Events around the UK, are a heady mixture of classic arcade, console and computer gaming, with modern games, pinball, shopping opportunities, special guests and more added for good measure. While the events are a popular destination for players, they’ve typically been located more conveniently for those in the north – only 2016’s Margate event stands out against Blackpool, Manchester and Glasgow.

But that’s about to change, as Play Expo London has been announced for 11-12 August 2018. The first Play Expo to be held in the capital will be at Printworks, a venue located in the Surrey Quays area of the Docklands. The show will offer up all the fun normally associated with Play Expo, but in a slightly more convenient location for those of us in the south. Adult day tickets are £20 and child day tickets £14, with discounts for family and full weekend bookings.

Mr Biffo Launches Digitiser: The Show Kickstarter

Regular readers of our fine magazine will be aware of our columnist Mr Biffo – a man more formally known as Paul Rose, the driving force behind the legendary Teletext games magazine Digitiser.

Today, he’s launched a Kickstarter campaign for his project Digitiser: The Show, a retro gaming YouTube show which promises to be “The sort of gaming show we’ve always wanted, but which broadcasters are too scared to make – and that YouTube isn’t offering.” Mr Biffo will be joined by co-hosts Gameplay Jenny, Larry Bundy Jr, Paul Gannon and Octavius Kitten, as well as guests including the likes of Kim Justice, Ashens, Danny Wallace and Violet Berlin.

Digitiser: The Show is scheduled for six main episodes, a secret episode for backers a special episode in front of a live audience. The project blew through its £7,000 funding goal with great ease after launching this morning, and is currently over the £17,000 mark. Backer rewards start from £5 for an on-screen credit, moving to £15 for the secret episode and £30 for the chance to be in the live audience. At higher tiers you’ll find signed Wil Overton posters, a DVD and more. If you want to back it, you’ve got until Sunday 8 April to do so.

For more information about Digitiser: The Show, including details on how to pledge, click here.

Snag The King Of Fighters 2002 For Free

Snag The King Of Fighters 2002 For Free

Here’s a deal not to be missed – GOG.com is offering PC owners a free copy of The King Of Fighters 2002, as long as you log in and claim it before the offer expires at 14:00 GMT on Thursday 15th February 2018. You only need to sign up for a GOG.com account to take advantage of this offer – the game is DRM-free and doesn’t require any additional software.

If you don’t know what all the fuss is about, let us fill you in: The King Of Fighters is a crossover fighting game series, featuring characters from various SNK fighting games including the Fatal Fury and Art Of Fighting series, as well as brand new originals. The series has a long history of excellence and the 2002 entry is a fan favourite due to its status as a “Dream Match” game – meaning that it ignores the story and pulls in dead and otherwise retired characters. This was the penultimate Neo Geo game in the King Of Fighters series, and went back to the classic 3-on-3 battles of the past, dropping the Striker system from 1999 – 2001.

Grab a copy now and let us know what you think of the game on social media or on our forums!
