That is impressive. I guess there were some (not me, I should mention) who didn't expect a magazine about vintage games to be successful, but it has. Nostalgia is very big right now and it's good there's a magazine on the shelves devoted to classic games. Now, if only a publisher were to release a m...

Thank you both for your views. I guess it all comes down to the type of game you are playing, whether it be a Dizzy game or otherwise. I take Bag of Magic Food's point about a trade-off and planning.
