I got the Nights cover. Not what I would have picked myself, but not a bad one.

The mag itself was unusually good though.

managed to swap my copy with my mate - got a Tetris one now - better than the Yoshi one i had.

I also noticed my local WH Smith has issue 99 and issue 100 both on sale - weird

I was thrown out of bed for defacing your Mother Motherfukcer.
I wish I'd have seen that before I went to Eurocon Pete, you're fucked if I see you at R3play and I don't care how good you are at Virtua Tennis or Pibble Pobble or whatever it's called. :wink:

Why would you want to deface a Sim City one (or any for that matter!)?

It was a joke due to Pete being a big Sim City fan.

Great. They managed to make the Street Fighter one as perverted as they could.
It's called a MEGADRIVE

Had another look round this morning when doing the shopping and found a load more. The ones I have seen are:

Robotron, Skool Daze, F Zero, Bomberman, Super MarioKart, Syndicate, Nights, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy 7, Mario 64, Vib Ribbon, Halo, Rez, Soul Calibur, Burnout 3, Half Life 2, Pikimin 2, Fallout 3, Gears of War 2, Empire Total War, Uncharted 2.

I decided to get the Skool Daze one, it's an excellent cover and I wanted a retro one. From the covers I have actually seen Skool Daze and Rez are the best. The Syndicate and Vib Ribbon ones are excellent too.

If I'm out later in the week I may still pick up the Rez cover (but it will probably be gone), might try a few different shops in the hope of finding Bubble Bobble or Another World.

I stopped off in services on the M40 on the way back home from Eurocon and had a look in the WH Smiths there. Found a Skool Daze issue if anyone is interested. I'd sell it for cost plus postage, or swap for the Wizball issue ;)

slightyly off topic - but last months Edge cover was the dullest cover in history - a picture of a plastic bit of hardware in black against a dark background. I actually fell asleep as I walked passed it in smiths.

I subscribe to GAMEStm so I didn't get to choose my cover.

I got the 'Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island'! It looks superb. Only 399 other copies exist! :mrgreen:
