Title: Retro Gamer magazine celebrates C64's 30th anniversary
Post by: RobertB on September 20, 2012, 10:04:56 AM
     Released last month in Europe and now available in North America, Retro Gamer magazine #106 has an 8-page spread on the 30th anniversary of the Commodore 64.  The glossy article includes a brief history of the C64, a rundown of the best qualities of the machine, a look at the best C64 games, and comments from several C= personalities.
     Retro Gamer magazine can be found at Barnes & Noble bookstores and at electronics superstores, like Fry's Electronics and Micro Center.  E-reader versions of the magazine can be found at http://www.greatdigitalmags.com (though it seems that purchasing #106 singly is not currently available.  You can get #106 via long-term subscription to the e-reader version.)

          Truly,
