Once I saw an ST running as a mates, my Speccy was archived!!!!
Read ST as Amiga and Speccy as C64 for me. :D
Damn those rich folk.... :wink:
Lol, my C64 was second hand via a card in a papershop window, came with a ton of games. I remember the family I got it from were a bit posh well off though.

As for the Amiga, my first 3 or 4 wage packets paid for it and who needed money to go out, when I had an Amiga with a dozen or so games to play.

Many of my school mates upgraded to ST or Amiga around 88 or 89, but I stuck with the C64 until... well, I never left it heh. I got a US SNES in 1991 and ran both side by side...

Have any international subs received their copies yet? Nothing here yet which, even by RG's low standards, is slow.

Nice stuff here, liking the GG Shinobi and Grim Fandango stuff... PLEASE tell me Mr. Schaefer was taking the biscuit when he said he didn't really make the game!

A bit upsetting to see Alleyway get a kicking, it was the first Game Boy game I ever played and will always have a special "something" for me - but yeah, to new players it might not be so good. Hm.

Just one worrying thing, about the Letters page - when someone turns up on these boards just to advertize a game they've made, it's treated as spamming and deleted. Yet when someone writes into the magazine, it gets published? Double standards or something?

I just got my issue in the States. I especially liked the U.N. Squadron coverage. The game sort of inspired my screen/login name and seeing a cartridge for $3 in a used records store made me start collecting SNES games again last winter.

I realy enjoyed the end of the 8-bits article, great stuff. I still had a Commodore 64 as late as December 1991 and remember buying quite a few Mastertronic and KiXX classic titles during 1990 and 1991, for as little as £1.99 for most titles. That was back in Boots sold games.

I got a Mega Drive Crimbo 91, moving from the tapes to instant loading cartridges was a quite a thing to behold!

An excellent issue that had a couple of a couple of bits missing (IMHO)

I was very disapponted that the Vector article didn't give mention to the mighty Vectrex (whaaaaa... missing mine now)

I, like certain others, am not that keen of the newer system starting to infiltrate the front pages just because they have a VERY tenuos link to some old game or IP. I do understand that if they were removed, it would be hard to find any retro related items. Normally I skip that section unless it is a new game on an old system...

Loved the cover - I think I still have the copy of Crash(?) that it came from.

The Final Fight article was very informative - there were some facts in there that I didn't know.

Looking forward to next months issue.

No. We had to juggle around the flatplan. Rest assured it's back next month.
