Bit of a mediocre issue for me.

Too new? Not enough 8-bit? Too much 8-bit? Poorly written articles? Not enough 16-bit?

It's hard to know how we could make it a less mediocre issue for you with now idea of why you actually find it mediocre :)

So you went the whole hog on Apple and Breakout, and then you leave out the piece-the-resistance(sp?) about how Woz wanted to do Breakout in BASIC and how that became part of the Apple II design?

Finally managed to find a lone badly battered 117 in WH Smiths WGC on friday.

Even though it looks like it went 12 rounds with Mike Tyson, Top of spine bent, torn, eaten, god knows... I still out of desperate love for RG brought it full price, hows that for dedication.

Would like to get a issue of 117 in nice unmolested condition sometime down the line, stone me what a life. :arrow:

So before I got to read the Kalinske interview I read this http://www.mcvuk.com/news/read/tale-of- ... ga/0118482.
Now imagine my surprise at reading the interview?

No, but with a leaky mind it felt like reading nearly the same piece. Did he host a roundtable with journos present, or something?

Possibly, but that wasn't the impression I was given by the interviewer.

I'm always stupidly late posting feedback on an issue but I've just got in before 118 appears to say how sweet and sad it's been to read so many of Stuart Hunt's pieces in the last few issues now he's gone :(

The Breakout and Space Invaders articles were great stuff - I wonder whether before he handed in his notcie, he tried to finish up the stuff he'd had on the back burner for a while. A fine swansong Stu! We wish you well - are you still out there as an RG freelancer? Do we get a proper goodbye in 118's editorial or summat? Daz, has he emigrated or can we expect to see him now and again as we do with the mighty Jon Sczep????

Yours in fawning farewell

Stu will hopefully be back writing after he's settled down in his new job and he's got into a routine with his new baby. The door has certainly been left open for him.
