Stu, I understand where you are coming from, and inevitably there are going to be articles for specific macines, that not everyone is going to be interested in. But take a look at the current issue (#6) for example - there are not just articles/reviews of specific games/hardware, but also more general stories e.g. The Virtual Boy flop, and Sega's Virtual reality disaster.
This magazine is written by enthusiasts for enthusiasts. All are welcome to contribute articles.
Although I am completely mad about Vectrex consoles (I am the author of two of the reviews in that issue), I do read many of the other articles and find them of interest.

regards

p.s. Also you can read this magazine without spending any money!

Sure, I find things to read and enjoy them, but a lot of it is 'meh' for me. There is/was a really coold retro mag that came out of the UK, very thick. Forget what it was now.. loved reading it in super big borders in london...

Probably this: http://www.retrogamer.net/

I have some copies of the original run when it still came with discs. Good magazine. I occasionally go on their forums. The UK has a good classic gaming market. Despite attempts even by me, it's very difficult to get much regarding classic gaming (particularly in magazines) going here in the US...
