Just has a flick through and it looks a good issue with plenty that interests me. Special mention to Iain Lee's Sidebottom tribute. Heartfelt and touching, and a very personal fitting tribute.

Was waiting for me when I got home from work.

Especially looking forward to reading the Ikari Warriors feature.

Love the cover and 'The ultimate guide' in general.

Also my copy didnt arrive like it had been pushed through the key hole for a change :D

That cover is aces.

Looks like tons of really good stuff in there, looking forward to it (especially Ikari Warriors and Axelay).

There's an Eric Schwartz interview, too. That was a nice surprise.

The Ikari Warriors and Bad Influence articles are also ones that caught my eye.

Got mine today, loved Axelay was a top, top game. Nice cover too - have so much to read so will not get to start this for a week or two, but looking forward to it.

Just got my copy and wanted to echo the above sentiments, a touchingly honest tribute from Iain which I found quite moving.

Nice to see Eugene Jarvis' under-appreciated 'other-half' Larry DeMar getting some recognition in the mag as well.

It promises a MicroMega feature in issue 81. Has someone finally tracked down Mervyn J. Estcourt?

Thought it was Shinobi 3?.....then again I'm frequently wrong and far too lazy to walk all the way to the bog to check. :D
