Hey guys! Just a heads up, but this month's Retro Gamer magazine (out today in shops - issue 167) has an article written by yours truly, it's the 'Minority Report' again but instead of the 6128 Plus - it's the CPC 6128! Looking at 6128 only games and 'hidden gems'.

And I've tried not to pick too obvious choices, so hopefully people on the scene like Odie, the Fres guys, Elmar Krieger, etc if they're still around and care will be happy.... ;)


A quick vid I did on my channel promoting this ->



Hope you guys enjoy it if you pick up the mag! :)

Oh forgot to mention 2 things.....


(1) There's a big plug for the CPC Wiki in the main article! Wasn't sure if I'd be allowed to slip that in.
So I hope Gryzor will be happy :D

(2) I took and chose all the screenshots, but I didn't do the picture of the CPC machine - which, if you read the article, you will have spotted it's a pic of a 464 not a 6128  :picard:
Not my doing!!!

I groaned when I saw that howler - and they made another one. The introductory paragraph below the picture of the CPC464 reads, "Out went cassettes, in came three-inch disks, 64k RAM and a new look." Erm, I think that should read "128K RAM"... ::)

They do make a lot of errors with the Amstrad, same happened in the big book they did, showing a 464 for a 6128 and vice versa

My mate got a "Back to the 80s" book for this birthday recently.
Browsing through the retro computers section, it said "Amstad 64"....  twice!   :picard:
My eBook about experiencing the Amstrad CPC (and others) as a kid, will be released December 2017!!!

Had a quick flick through in Smith's but haven't bought it (yet). It looks like a great article! :D

Cool. I'd picked up a copy at the weekend and noticed there was some CPC content, but haven't got round to a proper read yet. Great to see you getting more content in the mag!  :D
