RPM – Unofficial Retro PlayStation Magazine Review
I was recently alerted to a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for issue 3 of RPM – a Kickstarter that has since been wildly successful, good – and I was intrigued by the thought of a magazine that would focus on discontinued Sony consoles and systems.

Focusing on PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP, and PSVita, RPM expertly mixes retrospectives, interviews, deep-dives, reviews and various other features on high quality A5, with expert layout courtesy of designer Jason Maddison (@PlaySushiUK).

The magazine feels robust and is a joy to read thanks to the design choices made and clarity of the text. Having read and thoroughly enjoyed the first two issues, whilst the artwork and layout is fantastic, the real meat of the enjoyment for me was in the incredibly informative text, which cast fresh views on games I’ve long held dear, as well as well-researched interviews and features with nary an editorial wobble in sight.

The split of articles across each system means that there’s a lot covered in these pages, and the choice of each feature appeared to be genetically designed for me, with wonderful pieces on Syphon Filter (one of my favourite PS1 titles), Pursuit Force (one of my favourite PSP titles) and Gran Turismo (one of my favourite racing games!). If there are future pieces on The Runabout series or The Surf Coasters’ musical contributions to the PS series, COUNT. ME. IN.

With three issues being published a year, this really is a huge recommendation from us at GF, and issues can be picked up for as little as £3 via the Kickstarter page, which really is a steal as the quality on offer is exceptional, as is the production and editorial across the board.

A must for fans of Sony’s console back catalogue!
