exactly Sir Clive - not much a of forum if you can't post your opinions.

I think you'll find people often post negative stuff because they actually really care about the mag and want to see it thrive.

anyway - that's enough from me on this topic.

I was calling the practice of using reprints/ excessive amounts of reader material shoddy, not the issue. Where original material is used it is excellent - best in print in my opinion. But at least when the shoot'em article was reprint a while back, you put a disclaimer that it was reprint - here yo...

Another GamesTM reprint - TWO retrobate reviews...don't be blinded by the pretty cover - this is shoddy shoddy shoddy.

Seems to me RG doesnt have the resources to fill it's pages with original/professional articles - and that's a worry.

I'm not pre-judging the changes (change is fine by me) - but no doubt about it there is a trend/policy towards reader-led content - but I shall wait for the issues and then see what I think. (I think Darren, Stu and people like Paul drury write great stuff - they shouldnt undersell their skills by p...

Not convinced I have to say Darren: so I should skip readers letter, collecters corner, retrobates review and several column of readers musings? Myself and my mates who buy the mag all think this is the wrong direction - just our view as consumers - but it takes the glossy edge off of favourite mag ...

I agree with some of the above - collectors corner is good fun online - but it looks a bit sad in print - a lot of these reader inspired features are making the mag look a bit fanzine. Let's just have a print RG full of excellent articles - and an excellent forum where we can look at peoples pics et...

more musing from the Forum in print....oh no..please dont Darran. I really like this forum as a forum,but he amount of reader stuff: letters, reviews and now musings is spoiling the main RG experience for me.

Is Ultimate G&G as hard as the others? I bought the GBA version a few years back and got about 1% of the way in.... :(

I think you're right given the language barrier, the soldier collection would probably be the best of these PC Engine comps. One retro PSP game I do own is Bubble Bobble Evolution - which is really dont recommend if like me you're fond of the 2d original - the 'evolution' doesn't add anything to the...

I havent really investigated homebrew - to be honest I like buying UMD based games as I'm not that tech savvy.

The last big new game I bought was Chains of Olympus - which I found a slight disappointment - but it was a definite step in right direction for PSP gaming.

MSX is perfect example of a machine I'd love to know more about - specifically things like the cartridge based games.
