Get in there!

Got a couple of articles to read in issue 87 before I plunge myself wholeheartedly into some Missile Command love!

Like that Atari style cover, very nice.

Hopefully mine will arrive in an hour or so

...and its here !

Yep really nice cover, love the price sticker on it. I know theres going to be a lot of MIssile Command in this issue, i love my old retro games like Space Invaders/Pacman but must admit was never a fan of this one. Should try to give it another go really.

Attack of the clones looks good. Not a huge fan of Road Rash the game but its one of those articles i need to give a try.

This article really appeals to me - the company Cave. Got all their games on my ipod, great company for shoot em ups. Nice to see the map for Exolon. Firebird software - looks really good.

Classic game - Dark Forces. Love it, brings back memories seeing this. As always the homebrew section is good.

Fair bit for me to enjoy this month

Cracking cover! Possibly my favourite for a while, despite the loveliness of the Isometric/Mana ones.

Mine arrived this morning - first issue of my subscription and I'm impressed with how much before the shelf date it came through.

Had a skim through earlier, and it looks like there's some good stuff in there. Good cover too.

Strong issue.

Firebird, PGA Tour, Cave Story, Attack of the Clones, all look really good.

And the Exolon mapped is brilliant!

Cover is decent, not the best but not one of the worst either.

Very nice touch putting the 'Special Edition' on it!
Atari VCS collectors should recognise that! :)

Got mine this morning also. Looking good

I liked the cave article but I'm suprised it doesn't even get a mention on the cover. In years to come it is likely to be the only article that makes this issue collectible. Surely it deserved mention more than a devil may cry 3 retrospective?

While Cave is the sort of thing that you yourself might automatically fixate on it's not got any pull with the casual crowd.

Oooh. Iain Lee used a naughty swear word in his article :shock:

Not even sure if we can say that word on this forum without it being censored.
I'm gonna burn your house down. With a lemon.
