Y'know, other stuff, Sinclair related.

Thanks for putting this together. You've done a fantastic job of capturing the Crash look.

Looks very authentic, like some old mag printed on so-so quality paper and scanned
I'll make a proper reading of it soon,

Cheers guys. I aim to please! British people (well, those who actually are) telling a German something he made is funny must be a rare accolade.

For some things referenced in the Bloggo's Pow intro text (before the three reviewers speak), I highly recommend you watch this video of Ashens losing it. It is absolutely priceless!

Just read "my" review of Plonker and lol'ing. Me a "master gamer" - hah! I might play these supposed difficult games but in reality I ain't that good at them. I'm just relentless and never give up until completion (although Sekiro I gave up on at the farting/crapping ape). Boozy's 10x the player I''l ever be.

The review comments are just great - loved PSJ talking about wine gums :lol:

The Joffa interview was magic.

And the brilliant Steve Davis Snooker 128k easter egg.

I'd happily pay a few quid for a proper print version of this.

Great work! Very authentic looking. I like how you've made the white pages slightly brown like a real Crash! I've printed this out to stick in with my real Crashes! Good work.

I hope CRAP will have a sequel... next issue could be "Crap Your Sinclair" :)

Maybe a daft question, but who's the dude on the cover..?

I'm seriously impressed with how much effort you've put into this to make it look so authentic even down to slight blurring of text near the gutter, and the content is brilliant as well. My only gripe would be that I felt the whole aspect of Lie actually responding to people on the letters page totally unbelievable. ;)

It's a shame that people on World of Chit Chat didn't respond more to your post over there but I guess the ones in the mag who've migrated over here have done so and I just have to say again that this is one of the best produced homages/spoofs/anythings(?!) that I've seen in a long time - well done, you! :)

@Einar Saukas - if there isn't already a category for DIGITAL would it not be a good idea to make one rather than having it categorised as PAPER? Even if there was a printed copy of this (which I'm sure XTM would be able to confirm) then I'm sure there have been (and will be) other mags and similar that are only available as PDF etc.... right?
