They are going out today, I was told that this was the issue all your subs would be starting from. Obviously not...
Heh. I haven't got mine yet either.

This is a conspiracy against writers of the magazine :shock:

Magic Knight turning out to be female was a shocker of Samus Aran proportions!!! :shock:

Best issue for a while , and the first one I`ve bought in ages . The Funspot and the Retro Fusion articles are excellent . Funspot deserved much more space though :cry:

Because I read the mag in the Newsagents first ...... soon tell whether there`s anything of interest . I`m not into console gaming . Arcade or MAME stuff and I`ll buy it . Unfortunately ( for me at least ) the new RG is very console biased ....

Of course if you're just skimming, then you can't really judge at all. You may see things that at first don't seem interesting, but it all needs to be read thoroughly to be sure. I've often found with RG that the 'worst' articles I read last are the best after the event.

I totally agree, sometimes i think an article is dull as anything but i'm often very surprised.

I can understand if its 1984 all over again and we're in WHSmiths reading the mag but nowadays a fiver ?!

Still think theres a lot of home computer stuff in it every month and not consoles

It's not even a fiver of course, it's £2.50.

The definitive guide featues are the most exciting new addition to the mag in a long while. I am saving the Outrun one for when the young lady goes away next week, I think I will call Wednesday 'Outrun day'. I'm gonna take the phone off the hook, open a can or two, read the DG, then play as many of the games listed as possible. Surely that is the highest praise an article like this can get.

Just please don't start doing obvious ones like Tomb Raider.

You're supposed to buy 2. One to read and a mint one for the collection ;)

:lol: Who said it was to save a fiver ? You presume much .. I check through the mag and buy it dependant on the content . Period . Retro Gaming covers so much ( and rightly so ) , but as my interest lies in the Arcade / mame scene , I pick and choose the issues I buy .
Next months looks interesting with an interview with Ralph Baer , and the return of the High Score article . Lucas Arts , Star fox , Lode Runner ? Not for me . This is my opinion . In The Feedback thread . Ok with you ? :lol:

You may be more interested in next month's issue than you think. (Though there have been at least five Lode Runner arcade games, too.)

Just been reading the new issue. The quality is, as usual, very high. Lots of interesting features here!

The LucasArts, Megadrive and Magic Knight features were the best ones, although you didn't mention that Mastertronic re-released the first three games as a Spectrum +3 compilation :-)

But apart from that, a great issue. And it's nice to get a mention in the 'From The Forum' section!
