Well... I had a mate that took ketamine, stripped down to his Y-fronts and proceeded to scream out his life story at the top of his voice for a few hours, so I think all attending the Q/A got off quite lightly.

Mine arrived early, but been too busy to really read it yet, but great so far, Last Ninja is just an awsome game, so have read the
John Twiddy piece 8)

But opportunity missed or what, this is issue 64, so surely it should be all about the spectrum :lol:

I want a Virtual Boy!


It just got an undeserved kick-in-the-teath by people who couldn't see past the normal average console IMO :wink:



Another good issue though.

Well I'm in a pic for the Byte Back review, so it has to be a good issue ;)

Good John Twiddy stuff, never seen many interviews with him over the years. The Last Ninja artwork btw was done by Steinar Lund, just that System 3 decided to keep it as part of the contract instead of him retaining the original as per most jobs. Otherwise I would have probably wanted to purchase it from him :lol:

I liked Stu's Tetris piece although I must be up on my Tetris, I had heard of all ten of them (and played a couple myself)...

As I am now a very happy subscriber, it was a joy to receive this through my letter box on Saturday....

However I am not happy with my 3d ninja cover which threw a 3d nunchuk at me when I opened up to the first page......I was then truly dismayed to discover a small robotic ninja jump out of the back cover and slice my right arm off using a paper kitana.

The blood has splattered 3 of the pages.....can you please ensure when you do these fancy dan 3d interactive magazines that the pages are coated in some kind of anticoagulant product to prevent staining.

:wink:

Brilliant issue (again !!)

Dissapointed to see the front cover didn't open out into 72 sections! Liked the Dandy game review and John Twiddy interview, also the Virtual Boy article was excellent. Hopefully now Darran can stop mentioning his unhealthy obsession with Garou: Mark of the Wolves after its own article too! :wink:

That would've been more useful from a Q&A point of view than being catatonic. I quite like the idea of an 8 bit programmer standing in their pants and socks bellowing industry anecdotes whilst off their tits on drugs.

New feature maybe?

I was under the impression the wii and psp remakes of the last ninja had been canned.-Seems every time they announce a remake,it gets so far along,then plug is pulled.

Been waiting for the def.remake since the xbox version was shown.

Yeah it probably has but some information would be nice on this if possible. The screenshots looked pretty good in an earlier issue of retro gamer.

I tried to scan it, but with it having all the 3D pop-up bits, and arm & leg levers, it didn't come out very well.
