On holidays i like to stay away from computers 100% ! Might take one of the bookazines and a few others but like to have a break from the net/computers etc when i'm away

Just a quick note of adoration for the Monkey Island feature. 't was absolutely brilliant!

I believe the case was addressed a few issues earlier but I'd like to say it's nice to finally see in wide articles such as the Top 25 Dreamcast games the developers and the publishers getting credit/being listed. I expressed this gripe a while ago so it's a change for the better and one that better serves to inform. Nice issue otherwise, I look forward to the Toe Jam & Earl article forthcoming.

This is the first retro gamer magazine I have bought (only because its next to impossible to buy) but I traveled to every shop within 20 miles until I found it. The MI article is fantastic. Good job!

Bit late replying, and I haven't read back through the many pages of comments but thought I'd add some quick feedback...

A brilliant all round issue, one of the best this year and a perfect balance. Beautiful cover too.
Well done Team RG.
I really liked the Lets All Play Paperboy feature too.

My only gripe would be the "Scary Games" article, which was fairly rubbish and pointless IMHO. I'm not sure who Tim Henderson is and if he's wrote for the magazine before, but in future I might avoid his articles if it's just going to be about him and his mates personal experiences. Seemed very few games were covered and became just a huge waste of space and filler. The focus of such article should be on the games and who was behind them and interesting facts and info, .... and should be stuffed to the gills with lots of them. So many were missed. I think there may have been a similar-ish article last year, which may account for the style this time round but if it's a case of avoiding recycling content from previous issues then feautre/cover something completely different. Sorry.
