Still, given A4 is 11" by 8", and you could do a layout of 11 covers by 9 on the front, it may just lay out and work with a little tweaking heh...
The mag isn't A4 though :wink:

Yes, I realise that, but I was just being approximate, because people can relate more to the size of A4 ;)

actually, the previous covers idea would work well, as it's 11 3/4" by 9"...so it'd be a nice fit :)

What about a definitive issue, asking people like Archer and other game company heads and developers to write the definitive write up of the games industry, included there top 10 game favs, tell us something we dont know about the gaming industry from their experiences.
Ask Nintendo, Sega and Sony etc.. to share some unseen stuff with us like proto's, unreleased games etc...
Have readers vote on there top 10 favs from developers such as Ocean, Activision, Gold etc... with the top game from each having some words from the developer with stuff we didn't know.
Reviews of the top 10 arcade units as chosen by forum members - then use the home release comparison as an example next to each arcade review.
Top ten unreleased/failed consoles and machines (gaming) as voted for by members of the forum and developers who worked on the units prior to there failure such as Snes CD, M2, Neptune and so on...

Where are they now section - developers and industry leaders from 80's/90's including there top work retro and current projects.
Definitive release section for instance. List of sega consoles, Atari units - number of games released - units sold - top five games - variation boxes released.

Developer - info such as whatever happened to Ocean, Gold, and other developer of the 80's and 90's

just a thought, not very good at writing so sorry if a little all over the place

A lot of your thoughts are good, but from a magazine creation point of view they are never going to happen

Haha! :lol:

The twisted side of me quite likes that idea. It'd be like the fabled lost leisure Suit Larry disks. For years people would be talking about having seen the mysterious issue 100 in a train station somewhere, but not buying it, when in fact it never existed!

Wow.. great idea for an article or such, all the little quirks there have been in gaming. Lets see.. you had the tree stump bit in Monkey Island, disk 23 I think it was, the Larry bit mentioned, what else... I'd love to read about these kinds of things but now I'm already struggling to think of others... the "no tea" bit in Hitchhikers Guide was great, programmers or otherwise popping up in games like Mortal Kombat, Manic Mansion embedded in I think it was Zak McKracken, banned bits in games like I think it was Moonstone on the Amiga because of its twitching body bits and blood.. actually there's quite a bit that could be covered, depending on the perspective of the article.

Ah, did you finally get John Goodman? Or is it Rick Waller?

How about a cover with a big 100 written on it.
That works for me :D

I'd like to see a few articles on 100 of the best games that never really made it due to how obscure they are and perhaps ask a few Developers who have worked on these games.

Although I am a Mega Drive fanatic and would love to see games like Soliel and Alisia Dragoon interviewed, I'd love to see some C64, Atari and Spectrum games that were unnoticed for the day that still play great now being given some love too.

Either way, ther 100th Issue will be amazing I am sure.

I'd really like to see an A1 poster of retro consoles ordered by release date - each with a few choice words to pick out the noteworthy. Failing that, a history of Nintendo hardware would keep me happy - including any significant Game and Watch titles and Arcade cabs. I feel though that it'd probably be replaced with a large picture of Strider if this idea ever reaches RG! :D
