My retro-loving friends, I am a very happy man today. FINALLY, my collection of Super Play magazines is complete!
:-) :-) :-)

Super Play was - and is - the greatest 16-bit magazine ever created. But during the actual era, I only ever managed to collect 20 out of the 47 issues.

Over the last 5 or 6 years I have been keeping an ever-watchful eye on eBay, occasionally snapping up one of the issues I didn't own (and paying top-dollar for some of them...)

Now I have the complete set. So happy. So proud. If you'd like a reminder on how awesome this magazine was, click to the right to find some of the "Super Play Corner" posts I did on this blog.

(You can click on the images for a closer look)

In other news, I actually bought myself a Mega Drive! :-o
 I've been creating a sweet retro setup which I hope to show sometime in the near future, but I fear that my current house isn't big enough for it! >_< (Time to find a new house!)

Stay cool, people. :-)

This C.D. arrived in my mail box from Amazon today!

It is (as expected) fantastic - I especially love the arrangements of "Not Alone" and "Roses of May" from FF9 - and it got me remembering the trip I took in the middle of 2011, while I was in the midst of blogging retro gaming. I drove all the way up to Sydney and saw the "Distant Worlds" concert at the Opera House with a meet-and-greet afterwards. I still can't believe that I actually got to shake Uematsu's hand! What an honour!
I highly recommend picking up all three "Distant Worlds" C.D.s if you like Final Fantasy music; they are brilliant!
