The UK magazine "Retro Gamer" has 7 pages this month devoted to MSX!

The article featurs the Canon V8, Sony HBF!XD, Sanyo Wavy 35,, Panasonic FSA1ST, and the single Chip MSX!.

The article has excellent reviews of MSX games, MG2, SD Snatcher, Space Manbow, Jet Set Willy, R-Type, Penguin Adventure (I still play that game!), Herzog, amd Dungeons & Dragons.

Good reading!

My nominee for this Media Challenge 2, Program Homo Zapping from Antena3TV, a national TV station from Spain, is getting hot!. Their Star Trek parody (Star Cuatrok- could be translated as "Star Forthk") has not been done just in that edition of the show, but it is being done a lot of times with different scripts and jokes. And every time the sketch appear, the MSX appear too as the tool they use to control de Enterprise!. So the MSX is getting in the media a lot of times on a national spanish television!.

And now, Antena3 TV is showing one of Star Cuatrok sketches in their website, including a streaming video where you can see the parody online!!. Evidence is shown here:

Show n.57 "Homo Zapping" Top Videos - Star Cuatrok

So now they are highlighting the parody both at TV and on the web!. That will be my new nominee: Antena3 television website showing MSX!
