Wow. Looks like a cracking read, some of my fave games in there (especially the sensi stuff). Nice cover.

Hmm - for me, the features on Sensible Software, Exolon and Streetfighter II will be my first reads.

Anything specifically on the Amstrad ? (he says, with an Oliver Twist 'Please Sir, Can I Have Some More' expression on his face... :wink: )

Not really interested in he SF2 bit (haven't we already had a big piece in an earlier RG?). But the rest looks great. As does the cover.

You are aware that te Silent Hill piece is about to reopen the 'is PS1 Retro' debate all over again! FWIW I think it is.

I'm looking forward to this issue. I'm glad there's articles made about the Street Fighter II series. The front cover looks awesome!!!

And speaking of Data East, will it mention games such as Midnight Resistance, Joe & Mac, Shadowrun and Windjammers?

I'll echo those sentiments, but point towards the 'SF3:3rd Strike' on the much newer DC instead of PS1. If we're looking at Silent Hill, will we also be looking towards what is considered the pinnacle of the series with its sequel? Curious as I bought it a few months ago and in near the top of my 'to play' pile, just wanted to see the movie again first.

Not so keen to see another SF article, but looking forward to the Data East one so I'm happy with that balance.
