I'm sure she doesn't mind at all, although ex-muso and now-gardener Kim had an extra "e".

I haven't gotten this yet but I am looking forward to the Mega Drive article. Hopefully it'll be better than the SNES article a few months ago.

Don't get me wrong, the SNES article was great but so much more could've been said about it. I guess there's space to think about too.

I got mine a couple of mornings ago and for me its not so interesting article wise. I never owned a megadrive, nor have much interest in them, in fact i've only ever owned 2 consoles. An Atari 2600 back when they were the hottest thing and a Gamecube now. I also never much cared for out run or many of the other games featured.

Of most interest to me were the Boulderdash and Magic Knight articles.

Still, a great mag and well worth the subs.

They've reached as far as Aberdeen by Saturday, so all of the UK readers should have them by now as I'm usually one of the last. Slowly working my way through it - Read Magic Knight and Boulderdash yesterday (great articles, I must return to these games). Outrun was great and particularly well timed - I was given Coast to Coast last week and have just picked up the PSP version.

Initial disappointment at yet another MD article has been staved off by what appears to be quite an interesting piece - I've only skimmed it so far though.

They are going out today, I was told that this was the issue all your subs would be starting from. Obviously not...

Another good issue, really I was interested in two features - Lucasarts and Magic Knight, and they certainly didn't disappoint :)

Why dont you have much interest in a Megadrive ? I only had a Megadrive console back in the day, no NES, SNES or Master System.

I love seeing articles on those machines i didnt have and listing some of the best games and screenshots of games i would want to try.

Dont you ever see something like this article and think 'i wouldnt mind trying a megadrive emulator and trying some of those games which look great in the screenshots' ?

I love finding some classic games on other systems i never had, eg PC Engine - quality arcade conversions and other games on that.

Yes, anyone who hasn't enjoyed the delights of the MD (or SNES, for that matter), should certainly consider various "methods" for playing them.

Actually, there was so little space to include screens for all the best games, it might even warrant a topic of its own in the "games" section:
"Great MD titles you should play" - maybe a paragraph of text with mini screen to encourage people. The 16-bit era of hardware had an abundance of excellent games (8-bit too, actually).
