Agreed. Is there any chance of this happening? I missed out on buying them the first time around.
Ken sent me.

Got it yesterday, they had tons of them in the big Manchester shop. It was a bit weird seeing articles which were in the Hardware Handbook a few months ago, but it's still another nice big fat book to have a look through every so often.

Thought the ToeJam & Earl interview would've been in there, one of my favourite articles from the last 12 months, that one.

Weird, I was wondering only on Friday if another was due out, I even checked their website, but it wasn't up and went to WHSmiths but it wasn't in. Will have to get it this week, they're a good collection.

Thanks for the heads-up. Hope it's in WHSmiths this week as I've got a 10% discount card. Every little helps. :)

Such a shame that this bookazine was not advertised in the current Retro Gamer, you thought that being Imagine Publishing they would have stuck it in....same thing happened with the Hardware Handbook!

bookazines are a worthy addition to the coffee table and loo magazine rack- good work lads! by the way, can anyone explain why the Final Fantasy series is so expensive on ps1, when they sold shed loads?
