GOG has 60% off Broken Sword this weekend. http://www.gog.com/en/promo/broken_sword It's like they knew.

@Darran - The vast majority of CD32 games are Amiga ports but there are a handful of small exclusives and a bunch of ports with altered/expanded content. You really should read the features I write for you...

And I may have to slap you tomorrow for whatever that censored word was.

You're forgetting the AMAZING FMV INTRO MOVIES that were tacked on at the last moment ;)

Thoroughly enjoying the issue, didn't know much about the Capcom machine in the Obscura Machina article so nice one Damien!

Looks like my subs issue has not arrived either. Saw it in Smiths yesterday in Kenilworth which made me realise this.

First time ever that the postie would have lost my issue.

Cheers mate - I was a bit pushed for space, but both versions are essentially exactly the same, as Søren tells me -"regarding the so-called 'two extra levels on CD32' I have no idea who came up with this rumour, but it is not true :-) The only difference between the CD32 and Amiga 1200 is that there is CD music, but personally I prefer the A1200 music."

I don't think people need to start checking with subs, my issue hasn't arrived yet either. It must be a postal problem. Where are the magazines printed? Scotland?

I don't remember this many people saying theirs hasn't arrived before. Surely must be a postal problem.

Another subscriber here who still hasn't received his magazine. I'm in Staffordshire. DD payment was taken this month so that can't be the problem.

Have phoned subs as suggested. No lapse in my subscription. Issue has been dispatched. The lady said that quite a few people had been phoning up saying they had not got theirs, so she thought it must be a Royal Mail issue.

I'm with you Ip, no RG yet which is unusual. WH Smiths have had it for a couple of days now. :?
