Re: Why doesn't RG cover..

I used to spend a lot of time creating music tracks with The Music Box on the Spectrum - two channel music was such a novelty! I would like to see an article on it - the worst thing about it was the Wham! branding and included tracks!

Re: From the Forum question for issue 78

Those moments in the original Tomb Raider when you entered a new area and the camera pulled way back to show what a large space you were in... fantastic atmospheric moments and a great way to demonstrate how alone you were in the game.

Re: Issue 73 feedback

Hurrah, first time in the mag! But what happened to my Avatar?

First glance, I like it, and just like Iain Lee, I too only just got around to watching Micro Men. And shock horror, I think I agree with him!

Hi, my Issue 58 arrived with lots of the pages not cut correctly, to read the magazine at all I had to slice the pages apart. It's now a complete mess, can I request a replacement please?

Grrrr... my subs copy arrived with loads of pages joined at the right hand edge, after some work with a sharp knife it's in a right old state (but readable now).

Liked the Atari ST article, maybe now's the time to stick my STFM on for sale!

I have mounted it with a couple of film stills, a replica Ring and Sean Austin and Elijah Wood's autographs. Looks cool.
If it says Sean Austin, then it's a fake!
