Every Beeb game I ever played was in the computer studies room at school (circa '81 to '85). So, not counting the C&VG type-in listings, or Yellow River Kingdom, it'd have to be one of the totally authentic (ahem) games brought in by fellow pupils. I'd say Elite, but I really played that on the C64,...

How about a Tony Crowther feature? I'm pretty certain he's still in the industry even now, and he was definitely a prolific author right through our favourite 8 and 16-bit ages with a hefty back catalogue of titles to look at. Plus he had a quite distinctive 'chunky' graphical style that always stoo...

What's the situation with subscriptions for the old subscribers who're getting the complimentary issues? If I subscribe now will my subscription begin when the freebies stop?

Thanks.

Still got all 24 issues sat safely in a box (they were on a shelf in my office until recently but I needed more space for Edge, Games TM and, of course, Retro Gamer). Arcade was the mag that re-ignited my gaming fires after a down-turn. Bought issue one, with it's Lara Croft cover, from the (now clo...

It's here!

Issue 19 dropped through my letter box 10 minutes ago!

Looks absolutely fantastic. I loved the old RG, but this looks soooo polished in comparison.

I have to work, so I can't look at it properly yet, but it's a beautiful piece of work. Well done you folks!

Re:

What was it with the fluorescent fad in the 80s? Is my memory playing up or weren't there some biscuits that were vile shades of green and yellow? And something akin to Monster Munch in equally horrific colours? . Yes, there were - I used to love them - but I can't remember for the life of me what ...

Re:

Paradroid, 'nuff said. It would actually work very well in a full-on 3D version with a first-person perspective. That's been mooted by many in the past, but I've always utterly failed to see how a de-facto 3D Paradroid could work, because so much of the gameplay mechanic required you to be able to ...

In terms of hours of fun provided, my favourite has to be my N64. I loved it so. Goldeneye, OOT, Banjo-Kazooie, Blast Corps, Super Mario 64 plus a whole bunch of others that captured my imagination and drew me into their worlds. Plus, there's something about cartridges that will always make them fee...

Although I had my C64 and Amiga for the longest, it's my dear old 48k Speccy that holds the fondest memories for me. Maybe because it was my first.

Still loved the Cbm beauties though, and the C64 comes very close in terms of retro lovin' memories.

Or what about a Nights style update of Gribbly's Day Out?

Would love to see a Wally Week update too - Even a nice 2D version for one of the handhelds would be good.
