That'd require getting in touch with Bruce Artwick, which I've not managed to do. Mind you, if RG's doing a flight-sim piece, someone will have to find him. If you want to at least listen to some of his thoughts on Flight Simulator, there's a good video on YouTube.

How about an on article on Sundog
If you check out Bruce Webster site he says that Wayne Holder is thinking about doing a remake of the game and looking for feedback. Might be a good time for an interview with them.

A one-on-one special with Matthew Lightbourne; with things like what makes him tick, why he is so gosh-darn angry, and which pigfarm he was raised up on, for instance.

I'd like to see more coverage of Arcade games in the RG. Maybe even an interview with Nicola Salmoria about his MAME project - the early days MAME has done a lot to preserve Arcade games and I found each of those early beta releases exciting way back in 1997.

Has there been a from the archives for Thalamus?

If so, was it the pre Imagine days?

I would love Darren to do a new feature on the best shmups of all time. It is my favorite genre of gaming. I really enjoyed the Cave article in issue 88 and would love to see a retro look back at Toaplan and other shmup specialists. You could write about the best arcade shmups from over the years and also look at shmups that were made or converted to home micro's or console's. :)

No thanks. I don't know if it's just me, but shoot em ups (or scrolling shooting games in general) seem to get a ridiculous amount of coverage already, second only to driving/racing games.

I'm sure someone will pile in with some stats to prove me wrong, but that's how it appears to me anyway.

I wrote the Thalamus company profile for issue 39, which should be on Load 2 (the second RG DVD)

Mention it again, I reckon it would make for a good article. That's at least 2 readers up for it. :D
I would definitely want to hear an interview about Nodes.
me too.. :D
