Strider, Compilation Kings, the Unconverted and RPGs should be the top features for me. But I look forward to the Rambo games and Bombuzal too, I've enjoyed them both a lot on the C64. Let's wait and see.

Too much Atari for my liking, if you could sneak some more Nintendo in for next issue that would great :wink:

looking forward to this, a lot of things I am interested in.

the Strider and Rambo stuff + the compilations ( expecting to hit nostalgia overload if it features any of the compilations I used to have for the CPC )

Yeah looking forward to this. Rambo was one game i had to bite my lip and admit was far better on the Commie than the Speccy. Used to love playing that on my mates C64.

Quite a few things of interest, so a lot better for me than the last one.

Was that filmed in 720p? I got the option to show it as such, but it looked more like the regular 360. (Sodding stupid new youtube setup thing.)

Looking forward to the compilation feature, something I've asked for on several occasions.

Also is this the issue where Strider finally makes it onto the front cover?

Ah, I see! So it's never going to appear then (unless it's on the cover of the one when Darran eventually says au revoir)
