i'm a little bias - but issue 61 rocked :)

as one of the iPhone developers interviewed - i think it was correct of Darren and the guys to do a piece on the iPhone, especially as it is being marked as the future gaming device (not everyone can agree to do this; but it has potential). as for there being a continual iPhone piece? i am not sure..

as for the photography discussion; come on guys.. my mug shot is me on vacation in greece - it's the best i had :) i don't think there is anything wrong with their photography selection; it shows the people are real.. its not a beauty magazine :) i'm an avid subscriber; i have all 61 editions (including cover disks) - and i will continue to subscribe. i think the guys are doing a great job with the magazine and look forward to more from them in the future..

The paper quality of the cover is poor! Why?

Hmm, rare issue ahoy, us subscribers who got one with no price printed on the cover :) (unless the shop distributed ones' price label is peel-offable)...

Anyone notice the rather humorous thing that was accidentally left on Page 88?
"text box isn't level with the others" :P

Haha in all seriousness I really enjoyed the Mega CD feature :P

Have to counter by saying I found it fascinating and enjoyed the detail and insider anecdotes - this is exacly why I love reading RG. It's a company I'd all but forgotten about, but as the piece asserts, they really were years ahead of their time.

I also liked the feature - there are so many of these companies that I'd forgotten existed - would love to see more similar items
I've been quietly waiting for someone to pass comment on my EPC article. My original version was much bigger and contained some very funny anecdotes which I probably wouldn't have been allowed to include anyway!

They were a small company and they did only ever develop 4 games. The tragedy is that they had huge potential, great enthusiasm and some great ideas but ran out of time and money in the end!
