But yes, assuming people like BTWF, we'll have further installments.
Not to mention that Matthew Smith didn't write The Birds and The Bees... Adrian Sherwin did... but his graphics were crap, so Bug-Byte asked Matthew Smith to redraw them... Incidentally, the game was based on an idea given to Adrian by his sister.

(You can see Adrian Sherwin's graphics in the sequel, Antics - which explains why they needed to be redrawn :P )

1. Galaxian, great as always, missed my official plug and play namco galaxian i got with my first RG subscription 3 years ago. Strange question, but how many words are those articles, because the way the layout is created it looks like it is less words than a standard article, but if you read it, it seems more..
Well, it's overwritten compared to the commission, let's put it that way... :wink:

Also, Matthew Smith's first ever release was Delta Tau One on the TRS-80 by Molimerx, which was sort of hinted at in an earlier post.

It would've fitted in well with the current issue being a Galaxian clone.

Ah, it was 'Tau' not 'Tower'... sorry about that. I did check it all with Matt before writing it up... I blame the Guinness.

Hardly any feedback for this issue. Does everyone hate it or something?

Nah... I liked it :)

(May have been something to do with the corking write up for my book though... )

I haven't read it yet, I'm still in the process of trying to blag a copy for free :D

(I still haven't received the last copy I managed to blag for free either yet, so...)

I liked the bottom of the second page of the CDI article, the caption titled "Why was the Nintendo 64 so great"......

Not sure why not so much feedback - maybe we are all too busy playing with our Wii :? :lol:

A good issue, highlights for me were the CD-i piece and Craig's Way of the Exploding Fist article.

John did good with the CD-i Article I was really impressed how he used the raw interview material. Hopefully it revealed something not many RetroGamers knew about the Philips CD-i. Especially our very own First Person Shooter RAM RAID/ATLANTIS with on-line capabilities. Mutant Rampage is particularly great as well, I have a few screenshots that weren't used if anyone wants to see the special gas attack move!

Noticed a few mistakes but I'll forgive them considering the pressure of getting everything ready so they can actually have a christmas vacation! Unlike some poor sods like me :x

They actually turned off the demo pod for Wii in GAME! I guess people were going too crazy with the wiimote.
