Jaw dropped when I peeled back the wrapping and saw the cover. Stunning.

Had a brief flick through, and the Sonic section looks nicely in-depth. The Treasure article was a good read.

Only had quick flick through-she looks to be a thing of beauty.

Only blip? The homebrew pages are ripped-Rest of magazine untouched, so not damaged in transit. :cry:

Sent email off to service dept-hopefully get fresh copy sent out.

Cover looks great, but again isn't practical for carrying around for weeks to and from work, without getting worn.

Would like to see prehaps a pull out card containing the contents of the inner cover.

Really looking forward to reading the Spectrum game feature, I normally resist and read the feature I'm most interested in last, not sure I'll be able to resist this time.

Great cover - the photos on this thread really don't do it justice. Nice mix of computers and consoles this month , with the obvious highlight being the Speccy games, also looking forward to reading the North & South feature. Would like to see another arcade cab feature make its way back into the mag though , maybe Centipede or better still Battlezone?

Really happy with the North & South feature, most of my favorite Amiga games have now been covered in RG. :D

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.
Even as a diehard speccy fanboy I'd absolutely love to see this. Frank Gasking's page is a fantastic labour of love & I for one would be very interested in a feature or two on the subject.

This month's mag looks to be a classic, on a cursory scan there's not one feature I'm not interested in reading. I've got to discipline myself though & get through issue 90 first. Only the Knightmare feature caught my eye. I've got to wade through the rest of it before rewarding myself with some Sonic & Spectrum goodness.

Fantastic issue this month covering some genuine classic games.

Next months issue looks like a pile of donkey turd though, I might not even bother opening the plastic bag when it arrives and instead just bung it in the games room under a pile of rubbish such as Rise of the Robots and The Great Space Race so no-one ever knows it's in my house. :evil:

I think you're all overreacting. How bad can an article featuring Steve Turner be really?. If its that much of a problem just flick past it to the piece on the Amstrad which I'm sure will be the highlight of the next ish. Hope it makes the cover. :D
