Retro Gamer Looks Back at the Virtual Boy

Nintendo's much-maligned machine gets the retroinspection treatment

Here's some good news for those of you that have been keenly following Dave's excellent Virtual Boy reviews and are now thirsting for more information on the machine.

UK-based magazine Retro Gamer recently ran a 5-page feature on the platform in issue 64, which leading Virtual Boy site Planet Virtual Boy has kindly scanned and put online for your enjoyment.

The feature covers the history of the console and looks into the reasons for its failure, as well as speaking to Virtual Boy developers from the period.

Oh, and the author's name might ring some bells, too.

The issue is two months old but you can order back issues from the official Retro Gamer website here. If you're interested in getting hold of this highly-esteemed publication, those of you outside of the UK will be pleased to know that you can purchase a yearly subscription for as little as £70.00.
