Re: In the chair - Vincent Baillet

How aware were you of the great reviews Bactron got in the UK at the time of its release, and were the reviews that it got in British magazines all that important to you at the time or was the response of the French gaming press to the game of far more concern?

Re: Questions for Stoo Cambridge

How much fun was Jon Hare to work with, and what stories can you tell us that won't land Andrew in court for libel? ;) Did you have a career break between 1995 and 2000, or did Road Rash II just have a very long development? It's probably neither, but I couldn't help but notice the gap in your resu...

Re: Questions for Peter McConnell

Do you prefer composing for movie-inspired titles or original IP, and how does your approach to working on these two categories of games differ?

Re: You Ask The Questions - Kevin Edwards

Given that the Silver Surfer is one of Marvel's most powerful superheroes, what was the reasoning for him getting instantly killed by almost everything in the NES game - including the scenery!?! Was the irony of this design decision something that Marvel overlooked, and was it something that was con...

Re: Questions for Bob 'Star Wars' Smith

How much longer do you think Atari Inc. would have survived if it hadn't been sold to Warner Brothers, and would you have stayed with the firm if the buy-out and the subsequent fall of Atari hadn't happened? How big would you say Imagic could have been if not for a few crucial miscalculations, could...

Re: Gargoyle Games

Yeah, I've tried too. I contacted Roy Carter around this time last year and received the polite reply below: "Greg and I have been asked before to provide input for magazines such as your own. We have chatted about this at some length, and our view is that we would rather not accommodate these reque...

Re: New "How To" section - what should it cover?

I've always wanted to know how to carve clogs from a solid block of wood. :wink: Not meaning to derail the thread, but when I read the above I couldn't help thinking of this for some reason! Better suggest something for the "How To" section while I'm posting. Ok, game rooms are nice but a non-start...

Re: Jap computer coverage question

Looking back, we did an Obscura Machina feature on the X68000 in issue 96, and followed up with a Minority Report for the system in issue 126. It doesn't look like we've done anything on most of the other machines, including the PC88 and PC98. Certainly something to consider for the future... Yeah,...

Re: Subscriptions Queries

I'm assuming that the issue with punch out on the cover is the last issue and i havent received that either but just assume its late. Has everyone else got the punch out issue yet? I'm pretty sure no-one has a sub copy of the Punch Out issue yet - mine certainly hasn't arrived. They should start dr...

Re: Error in the Back to the eighties article in issue 127

Mr VG, you must realise that Richard Burton is PROPER retro and thus the naval battles that were first held in the colosseum in Rome circa 46BC are clearly the sport he is referring to. And I must say I did enjoy the Intellivision sports sims 'Stelios Mygiakis's Greco-Roman Wrestling' and 'Bull-Lea...

Re: old school arcades in Norfolk?

No idea to be honest, but this webpage has some likely venues.

You could always try ringing a few and asking if they have many video games. Have fun. :)
