    Behold, a Tumblr blog expressing that very point! Did I make it? Well, yes. This is a Shameless Plug™.

    I’m of the opinion that the last decent game journalism outlet was Amiga Power, the spiritual successor to Your Sinclair (which I’ve never read, but that’s my own damned fault for having been born a mere four months after the mag launched, and also having never owned a Sinclair in my entire life). Modern game journalism is shit, posting rumours and conjecture as absolute fact – anyone else remember “They’re making a videogame of Juno!” during 2008? Or is it just me? – and churning out absolutely shit articles and editorials, like TheLeen

    The German retro gaming magazines are all very nice. :P

    Do you read RPS, Ben? You should give it a shot, if not.

    I thought I had subscribed to their RSS feed, but apparently not. I have rectified this transgression.

    Their Toonstruck gallery brought back memories.

    Shameless plug: I just made this and I’m incredibly proud of it.

    Either it comes with a free MiniDisk, or the magazine’s A3.

    It supposed to come with a 3.5″ floppy disk. I might have gotten the proportions wrong.

    Ah, I see now.

    I wondered if it was simply a matter of Ian being too young to remember floppy disks; but even then, you probably wouldn’t fit the video on one ;-)

    “Video” is probably a generous way of saying “animated IFF what we made in DeluxePaint IV.”

    You could create awesome animations in Deluxe Paint. Especially with the ‘Spirograph’ tool

    The spelling of Disk was surely the clue.

    So, it’s all kicked off with Leigh Alexander, then, eh?

    Ooh, she doesn’t like me. Nor do any of her White Knight followers who think they’re defending their lady’s honour. Apparently I’m brilliant but I’m not allowed to pick on girls. Only bad boys pick on girls, our mam said.

    Well, possibly. Either way, since she’s a friend of a friend, I’m refraining from any sort of comment ;-)

    Blimey. Small world, innit?
