A great issue, though worryingly RG appears to be adopting the Viz style a bit. Not in terms of writing, but in terms of how I feel about each issue; a couple of issues I found really dull followed by a terrific one that justifies my subscription. I think it's because the balance of features this mo...

I had an opportunity to talk to nearly all of the team about HOW the game was produced, and it was too good an opportunity to miss. I'll let someone else write an article about WHY they consider RD isn't a good game. The problem is that the design flaws are a massive part of Rick Dangerous and they...

yeah , it's a bit disappointing . You would have thought there would be a few 'emergency' features held back for such eventualities , rather than reprinting a feature from another mag , especially a mag that would be read by the same people Who is going to write/pay for these emergency features the...

Re:

Maybe we could take the buyers guide out and cut down on the dps's (maybe have only 3-4 an issue instead of the current five). The buyers guide is decent enough, it's a shame though that it is partly at the expense of the eBay section; I liked the way the old incarnation of Auction Watch went into ...

Mobile game reviews

It's great to see these being reviewed as they're probably the only case of most punters buying them "blind" - no box art, no blurb, just a title and a shortcode, but I have one suggestion; can the review state which format they played the game on, as there are often a few versions of the same game ...

The BBC is an interesting case though, isn't it? Simply because most of us know them as a school computer, it's not really thought of as a games machine. That's not to say it didn't have games - we know it did. But as fewer people ever played them in the first place, there's potentially less scope f...
