Does this mean it'll be on my mat when I get home?

OH Joy! :D :D :D

Love the cover, that's pretty much all I can comment on at this stage. :)

Oh and pretty much every one of those features looks well interesting.

This issue looks amazing; what a terrific cover.

I was going to work late, but now there's a definite urge to bail out early, but I can't be sure the issue will be there when I get in!

The making of Resident Evil -ooooh yes.

Cool. An article on Alien8. My brother and I ALMOST finished that game. We had, like, two plugs left to place and we got stuck between to walls while doing that drop item-jump-pick up item thing.
5 hours down the tube. Aaaargghh!

Looking forward to the issue, as ever. Great cover too.

Mine arrives various days, normally appears a few days earlier than the date in the last mag. Normally when Darren or someone else puts up a thread for the new mag the subscribers have just got their copy. Hopefully the next day or two

Don't worry it has a special treatment on the cover, so it should wipe right off...

Has this feedback thread been posted a little early? Does anyone know what date the new issue is due out?
