Is that the scene from Coming to America where the king arrives at Eddie Murphy's apartment? :mrgreen:

Be rather blinkered viewpoint to take though Opa. Whilst Amstrad had more than it's fair share of ports, to adopt such a view would be doing the system an injustice.

Amstrad deserves as much of a feature as Speccy, C64, A8 Bit range etc.

Your wrong you know. Its just the hate that has taken posession of your heart that is talking.

Loving it. The last issue was interesting, but I've never been into Zelda. Sonic on the other hand... :D

But there's a lot of interesting articles throughout, not just the sonic stuff. Haven't even gotten all the way through it yet but the general 'interesting' factor in every article is really high, more so than the last issue I found.

Not feeling all the anger towards next months issue. Final Fight! Come on guys, what a great game. I played this loads as a kid... in fact I still spend ages playing this now. I have a feeling next month and a couple months back (the street fighter 2 issue) are going to be kindred spirits on my book case :wink:

Congratulations to Retro Gamer on outlasting Zzap!64.

I haven't even bought #91 and I'm already looking forward to #92! Out of curiousity, will Martyn Carroll's long-delayed Last Days of the 8-bit article appear in the next issue?

:D Big THANK YOU to Natalie (She's sorting out a replacement copy of issue #91, after mine had 3 torn pages). RG customer services? Best in the world.

On the condition that A) he'd want to write it and B) that anyone would be interested in reading it. We're talking about the C64 after all.
Darran, did the C64-issue sell so bad then??

No, but everyone knows that the C64 is rubbish.

Let's just say though that we don't put things like the C64 on the cover to get extra sales... We do it because we can.

I am getting quite close to initiating the bomb I planted in that C64c you borrowed for the mag. One more C64 insult from you Mr Jones - and the lamp post gets it! :lol:

(Must collect those C64's at some point!)

I've come to the conclusion that all these years sonic has actually been collecting Chav Earrings rather than gold rings.

Have now read most of the magazine and can honestly say it has really been one of mixed feelings...
Loved the Spectrum game article, the Untouchables one, Fairlight, the 3DO sequel one, and the Smash TV article...
Not really interested in the Treasure stuff, but that's my choice and problem, quite a good article though but never been a Treasure fan. North and South I've never heard of and it doesn't look like a game I'd be interested in... again my problem.

As to the Sonic article, it started well, but faded by the end. Too much emphasis on modern Sonic in my opinion... all Sonic since the Dreamcast has been pretty poor and at best a pale imitation of his Mega Drive roots. 8 pages was a bit excessive, particularly as there wasn't much variety in the article... would have liked to have seen more on cancelled Sonic projects of the past.

Unconverted was a bit dull this month, but Minority Report has fast become one of the best features of the magazine. Quite enjoyed Iain Lee's look at cassette tapes this month, and actually felt this could have been a longer article... the other columist chap, well he's still a bit meh in my opinion.

I'd put the magazine on a par with last months, mainly because only about half of it reflect my style of gaming. Still a great read though, so thank you to all concerned.
Will now look forward to next months...
