No sign of my sub copy here either, and it's usually very much on the dot, even last month during the snow.

Loved the letters section this month. I think they've got a stalker. :D

We had a Q&A with the team behind the iPhone remake but arrived too late to go in the mag so we ended up posting it here - http://www.gamestm.co.uk/interviews/squ ... t-of-mana/

There was also supposed to be an interview with Hiromichi Tanaka (producer on SoM) but he was 'too busy' in the end. This happened right around the time he was removed from FFXIV development so it was really bad timing.

I'm convinced that the Lightbourne letter is made up - surely no one really wrote in with that.... :D

Love the "Where Time Stood Still" piece (although not read it all yet - only picked up in Smiths today) - that game made me envious of Spectrum owners . . .

There's certainly been a thread or two along those lines. :lol:

Hooray my issue has arrived on time this month...

Had a quick skim of it, and am really looking forward to the Pac Man Jr., Where Time Stood Still, Lemmings and Tatung Einstein articles.
The rest of it, I can't really see a lot that appeals to my retro gaming preferences, Secret of Mana is not a game I've ever played (although I might get round to it one day), and the other articles too are about things I don't know about.

That's no bad thing though, maybe I'll learn something.

I am trying to work out a) what the relevance of that picture is and b) why you have a picture of my ex-wife in the first place :?

We all have pictures of your ex-wife, in fact you sent them to us.
