Re: Issue 70 has arrived!

Post by Denny Haynes » Sat Nov 07, 2009 5:13 am

Yup mines arrived too, didn't expect it this early beacuse of the post strike.

Again it looks another packed issue, highlights for me are:

The classic game Gribblys day out.
The trick of the treat, article on scary games.
Why you must play, Dragon ninja.
The making of switchblade on the amiga.
Retrospection Neogeo.
The making of Starwars the empire strike back.
Desert island disks with Ben Daglish, why oh why hasn't the title tune from Bombo on the c64 been included in anybodys selection :o
I'm in the mag this month :mrgreen:

So plenty to read then and with an Afterburner coinop caper for next month its quite a lot to look forward to. Must have been some probs with Mario as theres no sign.
I,m gonna live forever or die trying!

Just got mine through this morning; unwrapped it, opened it up and started flicking through. Then there was this cracking noise as I flicked to the back pages as the cover fell neatly away from the rest of the magazine.... Are we using kisses instead of glue these days? ;)

Still, the content looks good this month.
All I wanted was to make the world a better place...and make an a**load of money.

Gribbly. Switchblade. Ben Daglish. No Mario.

Sounds great! Much better than I was expecting this month. The post should arrive soon, so I hope I get it today.

Oh there is plenty of Mario, but that is just the ads. Is the ad count higher in this issue or is it an optical illusion?

What happened to the complete history of Mario that was promoted in the last issue? :x

Perhaps it went down the drain?

A really good issue. The Monkey Island article is brilliant. All need now is a piece about Space Quest 4 and the circle of truth is complete :)

Maybe there wasn't mush-room to fit it in?
