I think the point he's implying is that he'll be back, because he's done it several times before.
As you said though: Move on

*sigh* I thought the Knight's Lore article was bad...I've just got to the Strider one. Making jokes about how often the running down the mountain stage has been mentioned does not make it ok. Also, I see "insanely" is used three times in as many paragraphs. I don't want to come over all literary critic, but that's just poor. Crack open a thesaurus once in a while for christ sakes.

So far this issue has left a really bad taste in my mouth. It is taking me an age to get through, simply because it all feels like reheated leftovers.

Sorry you feel that way. There's a huge amount of exclusive interview content, so it's not exactly reheated. Still if you don't like it you don't like it, plenty of people did.

It does count. Regardless of the location, the behavior is exactly the same. It would be like Luis Suarez moving to another club and stating he is no longer a diving git because he hasn't done it at this club.

Continue with healthy feedback by all means, but as was stated earlier in the thread, I will be deleting the posts that have nothing to do with this
this thread, good grief! somebody is in for a busy night, and the editor too joining in with the non feedback :lol:

The Amstrad Games Time Forgot was a nice surprise & enjoyable, although too many of the screenshots were covered over by the sand graphic. Similar for the Top 25 Game Boy Games where a red circle for reader quotes obscured a few shots. The worst being the Super Mario Land screenshot.

Yeah we'll look into that going forward. It makes sense that you see as much of the rare games as you can.

I guess you can't please everyone. For me as an lover of 8-bits and UK gaming in the 80s, this is one of the best issues in a very long time

See this is what I don't get, this is the second time you have had a dig at other forum members in this thread without anything being said.There's no point in mods giving speeches, warnings etc about x y and z if certain forum members are allowed to flout the rules.

How is stating the truth having a dig?
Anyway I think this thread has run its course. I look forward to the derailment of 127.
