[Editorial] Guess what’s next on I ❤ Old Games! – 15/09/19

Hello guys,

After a whole year and thanks to last week reading frenzy, I’ve finally caught up with my backlog of magazines and I’m now reading the last magazine I’ve received, Retro Gamer issue #195. That’s a great achievement 😀 I’m counting the days to receive the Mega Drive Mini and day after day the wait is becoming more and more exhausting, since I really look forward to put my hands on this magnificient piece of hardware. Not to mention I have to wait more than six months to get the PC Engine Mini. I also had the chance play again some Sega Master System and my choice was Alex Kidd in Shinobi World…what a waste of time. Expect a review soon but I can spoil that I’ve totally unimpressed by a game I thought I could have loved.

Ciao a tutti,

Dopo un anno intero e grazie alla mi recente furia berserk di lettura, finalmente mi sono messo in pari con le uscite di Retro Gamer e ora sto leggendo l’ultimo che ho ricevuto, il #195. Gran traguardo 😀 Sto contando i giorni prima di ricevere il Mega Drive Mini e giorno dopo giorno l’attesa di fa sempre più snervante perchè ho davvero volgioa di mettere le mani su questa splendida opera. Per non considerare l’attesa di più di sei mesi per il PC Engine Mini. Ho finalmentr avuto l’opportunità di rigiocare un po’ con il Master System e la scelta è ricaduta su Alex Kidd in Shinobi World…che gran perdita di tempo. Aspettatevi una recensione a breve ma posso già anticipare che non sono stato per nulla impressionato da un gioco che crevedo avrei amato.
