I was transitioning from C64 to Amiga during Sega Master System's late '80s heyday, so I missed out on its colour packin' 8-bit goodness. Here's a smorgasbord of screens, compiled to help me become more educated about the wonders of SMS! ;)

Here's a pic of @OPM_UK's first 50 issues & the multitude of playable Blu-ray discs included with their mags. Belated congratulations to them (Issue 51's out tomorrow), I'm looking forward to reading through their next 50 magazines! :)

A visit to a few Southport arcades during last August bank holiday uncovered these gaming beauties, with the pièce de résistance being a Japanese F-Zero AX cabinet! ...F-Freakin' Zero!!!

Here you go @UKwoods, you don't need to wait a few years, you just need a time machine. This is Kinect, named Activator, circa Jan. 1994. I found ad while reading old GamePro other day. It's awesome, but only for SEGA Genesis...which looks a bit like a Mega Drive! :)

@RedEaredRabbit @RyanLambie @Digital_Foundry Rabbit & Ryan were tweeting about Rabio Lepus, plus Digital Foundry are celebrating 20 years in gaming industry, so I thought I'd kill two birds with one stone, by scanning Rich's C&VG review from late '90-early '91 (I no longer have the mag's cover). :)

I completed Super Mario Galaxy 2 today, yet I've only got 71 stars, so there is loads left to discover. Nintendo are not just massively inventive with its gameplay, but they fully understand how to celebrate their mascot's previous successes. Completely magical gaming. :)

10 hours clocked in Red Dead Redemption & 32% complete. My John Marston is building notoriety, but profoundly honourable. Phenomenal score, pitch perfect atmosphere & captivating characters. I was lucky to be on holiday during launch of this AAA game.

BlazBlue: Calamity Trigger (UK advert): Long live hand-drawn 2D sprite and pixel art mastery. I'd quite like one of those Hori Fighting Sticks, too! (Play Gamer #07 comp).

Play Gamer Issue #7 has a beautifully laid out Sonic 4 preview. Huge screenshots galore, it made me want to go back and read the original Sonic review in Mean Machines (July 1991, Issue 10).

@DamienMcFerran Your Retro Gamer No.72 Making of Capcom D&D brawlers was right up my goblin infested alley! It made me pine for stolen Saturn discs & seek consolation in PC Mystara. Great stuff :)

It is not a secret that I am skint, but I was a rich man on Christmas Day! Massively generous friends & family (including my cousins & Jo's family) netted me this mighty fine haul! I am a spoilt sprog, they all know my tastes so well, but I am definitely
