Not received mine yet but intrigued by the 'C64 type-in game'. I used to spend hour after hour typing games into my C64 from magazines so will definitely do this one. It'll make me feel about 15 again!!!

Amazing cover! And yes, looking at it now it's such an obvious cover to do! Can't wait to get it, hopefully later today.

Keep up the good work!

Just got my copy ! Love the cover

Nice to see the article about the Speccy. Sonic article looks great. The 100 classic gaming moments looks brilliant, sure that will jog a fair few memories. Grand Theft Auto article looks great (the original top down one)

Ha ha funny to see the C64 type-in in the mag, bring back Basic ! All those data lines look a nightmare to type in. Funny to see it but i hope that doesnt get in the mag every month

So, I have been avoiding reading posts about issue 100 until I receive mine so I don't spoil the suprise.

I guess I hadn't factored in spoiler topic subjects :roll:

Darran, you and everyone involved are all stars! An amazing sounding issue(s)

I started listing the things that were particularly interesting to me and I ended up listing almost everything, so I'll just cut it down a bit more and say:

The Music Man (An Interview with Rob Hubbard) - :-)
David Braben discusses Elite - :-)
David Crane's Tricks Of The Trade (David discusses the many Atari 2600 techniques he created) - :-)
In The Chair with Andrew Braybrook - :D :shock: :P :mrgreen:

The rest are all of interest. Not a thing I won't enjoy.


Issue 1 - Is this an actual full reprint of the mag, as in it looks identical?

Issue 1 is the only issue I don't have, so this is absolutely brilliant of you to include. Thanks!

Actually, the only small niggle I have is that the cover doesn't seem to have much 8-bit computer characters on it, and since you got Andy B, I would have thought you would have the Influence Device, a Manta, or Gribbly on there.

I can't wait to get home now and have a proper look.

I got mine this morning, I have only had a quick flick through it so far but WOW! :shock:

Well done to Darran and the rest of the team on what looks like the best issue ever, give yourselves a big pat on the back!
