Another great issue lads, love the 80's and 90's pages, remind me of the old Games-X magazines!
Oh please do an article on the classic game Hunter on the Amiga/ST/PC superb game...i even wrote (yes wrote!) Activision about a sequel about 1995 and they wrote back saying they are looking into a sequel for the Playstation (1) but alas it never appeared..but anyway have a look into it :)

Enjoyed this issue a lot, the shining force and panzer dragoon articles made the issue for me as I was wanting more japanese rpg coverage :)

A daft question here. I'm up to the 12 games of Christmas article. Can anyone explain why "Seven Swans a-swimming [singing]" has something to do with Shenmue? I couldn't find any mention of swans, swimming, or singing in the text about the game, or did I miss it?

Thanks. I have never seen that one before. Thought it was one of those mythical ports.

Another great issue!

It was especially refreshing to see the Atari ST get the coverage it deserves! The atari st was my first machine and in my view had a great variety of games and other software and ws a good starter machine.

It was a shame that it was somewhat overshadowed by the amiga in the computer magazines of the time. Lets hope for more st coverage.

keep up the good work

Font: Not bad at all. One of Frey's better.
Microprose: Good.
Twilight: Lovely stuff.
SWIV: Goodie.
Drawing: Interesting. I'm sure you could have put in even more intermediate steps.
Christmas: *scratches head*
ST: Hm. Tramiel poached half the C= design team. No chance any of them worked on the Z8000 Unix system? No? And then they manage to make a graphics system as inflexible as the ST? Weren't there more ST-only games you could pick for perfect 10?(Gauntlet 1?) At least not pick a game which was an Amiga lead.
Steinar Lund: Not enough paintings! Want more.
Activision: Very good.
Bounder: Nice.
