I was thrown out of Morrisons this morning for defacing a Sim City one.

Disappointing selection at Sainsburys round the corner. None of the stuff I wanted - no Outrun 2, Super Monkey Ball, Crazy Taxi or Parappa The Rapper for starters. The shelf was overburdened with modern keech like Mass Effect 2, Halo 3 and Fallout 3, which don't interest me in the slightest. Only three retro covers, sadly.

I eventually settled on Ocarina of Time. It was either that, Paperboy or Ant Attack. :cry:

I'll take the Wizball one if you can get it for me heh... I'll have a look in my WH Smiths when I get back from Eurocon, they still had issue #99 on the shelves yesterday...
If it's still in there when I go for my lunch I'll snaffle it for ya Mayhem. :)

But Ant Attack is one of the few desirable ones!

Cover aside (I got a crappy Yoshi one) - it's a really nice issue content wise (and no, that's not a cue for RG to go mad about noughties - but I did enjoy it as a one off look back).

I picked up this one Image today. There were a few other covers I liked too but I only had a fiver in my pocket. Might pop back next week for the LoZ and Wizball one if the shop still have them*

Ironically , I may be persuaded back into buying this mag having bought this edition. Not as good as RG of course! :mrgreen:

I don't understand the pictures - is it a hardback, or what??

I want the Pac-Man and Gorf ones.
