Yup, looks like a good issue. See a lot of things there that I'm interested in.

Already? I haven't even started the last mag and I've only just completed the Atari 7800 issue :oops:

The mention of Origin Sytems is enough for me. :)

From the cover this issue seems to have a lot of things i like. Hardly know much about the Saturn. Normally my issue always arrives early but i'm sure it'll turn up today. Roll on the postman !

Just turned up...

Nice cover. Great advert for that Commpendium book, just wish there was a Speccy one ! Does look great though. Nice 2 page review of Revival, would love to go but Boyo always puts it on over my birthday weekend when i cant go ;)

Sega Saturn - Never had one and hardly tried once , not a huge deal of emulators for it
Wasteland - Never played this RPG, looks great
Batman - Looks interesting
Soft Aid - This looks great, remember this tape back in 84
Origin Systems - Good stuff, huge fan of the Ultima games back then and Wing Commander
Scariest moments of all time - Again looks decent
Gaming Obsessions - I've gone mostly digital, must be some blokes with great other halves to let them have these !
Making of Medal of Honor - Payed this a ton in the 90's

Amusing to see an advert for a arcade classic table - plays '60' classic games 'only' £795 !!

Next month - Pokemon seems to be the main feature (never was a fan personally !)

Anyway good issue for me this month

I'm halfway through and it's a very good issue for me.
My favourite Back to the Nineties ever, I'm not sure of the article about controllers completely replacing keyboard and mouse though.
K&M is better for certain genres and it will take something really innovative to replace it.

I know nothing about the Saturn and found the article to be a good read.
Loved the C128 minority report too, Plus/4 sometime in the future please.

Wasteland is a great game.
Batman, very good article, I like the comic book style you used for the captions on it.

I'm looking forward to reading about Origin Systems next.

Arrived today.. Know nothing about the Saturn, so that will be a good read. Good to see the 128 get a mention. Not sure about the collectors article, don't really enjoy those, but can't have everything... weirdly, enjoy that kinda thing on Youtube though :wink:

I will grab this tomorrow as I'm flying out from heathrow so it's somthing for the plane.

I take it I missed the punch out cover issue.

That cover looked amazing!

I know nothing about the Saturn, a friend had one with pinball graffiti and we played it for hours, and I have wanted one ever since.

Interested in the revival review too

Didn't even realise I had the issue!! The wife just dumped it on my current pile of RG's (about 10 of them).

Enjoying it so far. Softaid - very nice article. Even though I enjoyed it on the C64, I always felt that the speccy version had the better selection of games.
Back to the 90's - excellent! BUT R.B - Total Annihilation is NOT A TURN BASED STRATEGY GAME! RTS... Real time strategy.
C128 minority report was good - would very much like to get my hands on one of them.
Scariest moments... hmmm odd article but fun all the same. Alien on the C64 did indeed scare the ferk out of me in a dark room :lol:
