Some more Frey goodness on the front which is always welcome. Only had a brief skim but looks like a cracking ish so far. AvP, The Acorn Electron, Level 9, horror games and Panzer Dragoon no less.....its a happy Saturday. 8)

Looks like there are quite a few articles I'll be very interested in. I always read them all, regardless.

Quite surprised at the cover though. Since text adventures aren't "sexy", and we have already had a Level 9 feature, I didn't expect that to be the thing to try to get new people to pick it off the shelf.

Always nice to see an Oli cover. Any chance of a Will cover soon?

Has RG done an Infocom article before like this Level 9 one? Reading the level 9 one brought back great memories of playing infocom stuff...

Not as much interst for me this month but will obviously still read it all. Panzer dragoon article is great, oh and the biohazard dreamcast is the coolest version not the regulation R7 :wink:

Panzer Dragoon article was great, nice work on that. Such a shame it's one of those Sega series that will probably never come back again :(

so, the Halloween related stuff (scariest moment etc.) is in this issue? Great that it won't arrive oversears until at least one week after Halloween...

FWIW, if that's subscriber copies arriving now (mine hasn't), then it'll be a few days after halloween before it hits shops in the UK too.

I'm not going to moaaaaan about it ;)

Umm does that make a big difference then? Would you have read the article in the dark on Halloween with a cup of fresh virgins blood??

Why not move to the UK and subscribe ready for next year? :lol: :lol:

Great issue with lots of artciles I was interested in this month (mainly the 8/16 bit ones). Mine arrived today on time, only once has it ever arrrived late. Oh and Darran, I'm a big fan of Xybots also, so that makes 2 people!
