Re: Issue 81 - Official Feedback Thread

My only concern is the Pokemon Mini article. Not because it is a bad article. It isn't, I read it last night and it is skilfully written. But rather (in my pedantic way) I wish to question whether a console released in 2001 is considered 'Retro'? As I postulated in the feature "retro" is about more...

Re: Issue 81 - Official Feedback Thread

Have to agree, the cover is a brilliant bit of design work. And it was a great issue behind it - liking the new Future Classic feature, really enjoyed Mike's interview with Julian Gollop and the humour in Kim's Making of Day of the Tentacle.

Re: PUNCH OUT - WII - TOSH!

I've always thought that Nintendo should have subtitled the new Punch-Out!! as "Videogame Training". It's basically one big boss rush, relying exclusively on pattern recognition and does make a good way of preparing you for other old-school games.
