I pretty much read everything cover to cover...
The way I tend to read the magazine is to read all the things I am interested in first and once those are done... I will read everything else from front to back.
I wouldn't mind seeing the "Retro Revivals" get a little more attention. I do like the big screenshots, however a little more info about the game would be nice... There is very little space on the page dedicated to the writing and its not uncommon for the article to go off on a tangent. I don't mind a little scene setting, but sometimes I get to the end and think 'what have I actually learned about the game?'.
The "Why you should play" articles I think could also be longer.
Going against the grain a little here, I appreciate the creativity of the "It came from the desert" article, however I wouldn't be a fan of having that type of writing in a feature every month. It was refreshing but it would lose its shine if it was done over and over...
I would love to see more features of old Dos games. Surely I am not the only person who was lumped with Cosmic Cosmo, Duke Nukum, Jill Of The Jungle, Crystal Caves and the like. A feature on Apogee would be nice... I know there was a lot of dross for dos... But it still has its place.
A "Why it's crap" feature would be funny, looking at all the reasons a particular game was really bad.... and maybe try and track down the maker responsible to get their standpoint.
I can understand why the buyers guide is there every month as it seems a necessary evil... But it might be nice to replace it on the odd occasion with old ads and stuff.
For a one off, (I will probably get slated for this) but I remember all the magazines back in the Sega Vs Nintendo days having those 'Readers Pictures' sections.... As a one off it might be amusing to either see if any old ones can be found, or maybe have a competition for new ones... (in a completely 'we know its naff' kinda way.
I had better stop typing now....
