Ordered mine yesterday! And I'm really looking forward to reading it. I almost bought the games tm bookazine today too but held back (stupidly). I ended up buying the GTA 5 guide instead

If this had been MD only I would have snapped it up immediately, now I must just have a flick through it first and see if it's worth it.

Wow that was a sleeper release...I'm wondering thought, since there hasn't been altogether loads and loads of Snes or Megadrive coverage that I can remember recently, will this have brand new content or it all from the archives?

This would be great in a volume series.

The SNES is a great console too, I owned both as a youngster, had to work the entire summer holiday to afford my SNES lol. Those two and the PC Engine are probably my favourite consoles of all time. I reckon you will enjoy it.

Never been a SNES fan, it's just never grabbed me like other consoles have. Dunno if it's the horrible controller or lack of arcade conversions compared to the Mega Drive or what. I would have loved a MD/PCE book, that would have been ace.

I will have a look in WHSmith tomorrow (seen as it's next door to my work!) and see what I think.

Same thoughts as Mr. Laird there - SNES stuff just bores me, always the same ten games getting talked about (and hardly ever the good ones like Cybernator and DKC3).

Might see if they'll let me have half of the thing for a fiver.

Would be great to see an Amiga version but at the rate the Amiga is covered in the mag it will probably take another 10 years.

Appreciate a little review here by anyone who's got it! Especially as what the contents are. If it's features we've seen lately I might save my dosh as it will be $30+ with postage to NZ...but who am I kidding?! I'll be getting it :lol:

Looks like a good bookazine. Never had a SNES as a kid but i've enjoyed browsing their games and finding a few gems here and there, its not just 'Mario Land' !

Surely Amiga/Atari ST must be round the corner soon

Another potential Christmas pressie to add to the list to tell the missus.
