Got mine this morning. Looks like the subs problem of last month is history and we are all being treated to RG a whole week early :P

The cover is much better than the boring old SNES one of last month and I have only read the contents but it looks like the best ish yet...

Trip Hawkins
Eugene Jarvis
Dragons Lair
Oli Frey
Gremlin
APB & Trapdoor

I am spoilt for choice. If only I could get out of going to the garden centre with the missus, I would have a loungy read this morning

Mine arrived this morning too. Looking forward to reading about Gremlin Graphics and I hope it touches on their awesome 16-but stuff as well as the 8-bit characters that appear on the front.

Still, Monty on the Run is awesome.

Got my copy this morning, and I LOVE WIL'S ARTWORK! It's fantastic.

Had a quick flick through and I'm impressed.

Don't have either this or the last issue yet, due to my subscription still being anchored in the UK. I'll make sure to get them sent here when I resubscribe (albeit at about 3 times the cost :lol: )

Loving that front cover, now I'm loving the day I can buy it in the shop :lol: I must get the RG subscription, the price I saw it last month is too good a deal but I'm scared of my postie and how it's gonna come thru the door!
