880 Gamer Magazine #2 – Amiga Magazine.

I must have missed this somehow so thanks for the heads up RetroCollect!

880 Gamer Magazine is a digital retro magazine for Commodore Amiga gamers. I’ve only had a quick scan during lunch break this afternoon but am definitely liking what’s going on here. It looks highly polished, had me laughing out loud on the few paragraphs I read and with the inclusion of vintage amiga/game adverts makes it appear just like a genuine publication of the 80’s and 90’s – a feature I wish Retro Gamer Magazine would bring back to their print mag.

The inclusion of a digital cover floppy disk is a great idea too and certainly in keeping with its retro flavour (and highly popular with other fan mags like Commodore Free) but maybe it would have been better to include more recent scene stuff, pd or home brew releases etc rather than a demo of an old game? – I guess that’s the whole point of keeping it old school though?

Either way, after a little more sanding of door frames when I get home tonight,I’m looking forward to putting ones feet up and having a really good look at this and issue #1.

Here the link to the downloads which include the pdf magazine and the adf cover disk.

Commodore Free double whammy.

Two issues of Commodore Free magazine in one go? Don’t mind if I do!

Issues #74 and #75 are out now and available in all manner of digital reading formats including .d64

Personally, I’m all up for the .mobi’s as the Kindle app now supports keeping everything nice and tidy with the Collections feature…..

….followed by the .d64 loaded on my C64 because I still continue to get a kick out of seeing new stuff running on older hardware.

Issue #74 has a nice Vic-20 on the front hinting at the wealth of Vic-goodness inside.

Reset Magazine #1 for C64 gamers.

There’s a new digital magazine out all you Commodore 64 users.

reset#1

Available in PDF format, this first issue gets off to a cracking start and features reviews of a couple of new games, a look at a classic oldie, scene news,  hardware reviews and advice to keep your breadbin in working order.

10 PRINT “awesome-ness” and I hope this is the start of a great new mag.

I’d also like to give a shout out to Merman too as I’ve always enjoyed his articles  in RG or RTM and am very happy to see that he’s writing here too.
