This is a link post Zzap64/Crash Magazine film
Any old sods like me remembering the 8bit computers and reading Zzap64 or Crash might enjoy this. Nice little doc about Newsfield and the teenagers who ran it.

This is a normal post I'm ancient enough. I loved Terminal Man and the artwork generally. Thanks for this...

This is a normal post Great find!
I used to read Crash every month - great magazine for the time.
Btw I have to call you out as being a Commadore cunt again - the title of your post says it all - Crash came first ;)

This is a normal post Good stuff.
I bought all six issues of LM. In fact I've probably still got them in my attic somewhere. WAY ahead of its time - it was "Loaded", eight years too soon. You could tell it wasn't going to last long, though, because one of the good things about it was that there were hardly any adverts in it...

This is a normal post I worked in a computer shop '83-'85
so I'm familiar with just about every game from every platform of that era. It was great having a new game come in and you'd take it home to "review" it, I think I played every Spectrum game at the time (I was the Spectrum guy). Funny thing is, I never really liked games... I was more into programming. I loved the magazine called Your Computer. That was far more up my street. I think I bought maybe two Crash mags in my life, didn't like them.

Lovely bittersweet tale. These men made my teenage years happy.
