RGCD is a downloadable CD-ROM based magazine containing retro reviews, features and developer interviews. Each issue of RGCD contains direct links (to files on disc) of each game, emulator or tool reviewed irrespective of platform.

Previews of each issue are available at www.rgcd.co.uk, but in order to actually read the rest of the articles and reviews you'll need to download the .ISO image and either burn it to disc or mount it on a virtual drive. There is also a cut-down 'lite' version (excluding all games and emulators) provided as a downloadable .ZIP archive.

RGCD is 100% spyware free and all files are virus checked before uploading. Magazine contents are posted in the comments section.

Note that the current-issue page on the website royally fucks up when displayed in I.E.6.

It's fine in I.E.7 though.

I've identified the problem and fixed it at work, but won't be able to re-upload the file until I get back from work tonight.

Frustrating!

You can still view the page, but the right hand side bar has decided to migrate to the bottom of the page (the text wrapping in the list doesn't work properly in I.E.6, so it nudges the bar over the width limit).
