Finally got this, a lovely tribute to Mr Singleton who I have not played a single one of his games but now have a massive inkling to play Lords of Midnight. Looking forward to the Bullfrog article and seeing the bit on World Of Illusion makes me want to relieve my triumph of finishing co-op on my own playing both players with two megadrive pads when I was 9 or 10 lol! (I may just rope the missus in instead :p)

A bit late for feedback, but nonetheless...

A brilliant issue, probably the best for several years. Not a fan of the cover (too kiddy, too Nintendo), but the content is wonderful and right up my street.

Baldurs Gate, Bullfrog, Swos, a lovely tribute to MS and a delightful feature about SCUMM. I couldn't really ask for more. Keep up the great work.

Thanks,
Pete

Have to say that I find it incredibly amusing someone saying that a cover on a videogames magazine is 'too kiddy'....

I posted this to Darren on Twitter, but thought I'd say it again here. While I've enjoyed the last few issues I'd like to see a return of 16-bit coverage. That's the era I grew up with and I'm not as invested in the 8-bit stuff. Sorry to be another reader demanding things, but it seems there has be a lot of 8-bit in the last few issues.

I loved the front cover, when seeing it in the newsagents, I have a flash back to my youth picking up an old Super Play Mag.
I had to check inside and to see that it was indeed Wil Overton's work.

Excellent cover, I wish you could get all the cover art done by the wil, as for me this what retro gaming is about, the pure nostagia. :mrgreen:

I quite like both but i grew up with the 8 bits so i'm happy with that ! As always difficult to please everyone though
