Some good, some bad this issue.

Jumping Jack article excellent, Neo Geo (not a machine I have any liking for) article also interesting. Kevin Toms superb - cant beat Kevin Toms. HERO not too bad and always good to see Booty get a mention.
Broken Sword was ok, but couldn't ever get into that game.

Audiogenc article was very business based, and to be honest quite boring, it read like something in a trade paper. Did not like the coding article, but I don't like reading about coding, so no surprises there. I know there are people out there that do like reading about coding, so fair play to it being in the mag.

The article I hated with a passion was the best weapons one. I'm not a pacifist, and I've played plenty of violent games in my time, but it read like it was written by a drooling 14 year old boy, getting off on murder porn. Really immature writing I thought, in fact the sort of writing that gives video games such a bad name in the Daily Mail and its like. Nothing wrong with any of the weapons or games mentioned - I've played and enjoyed about 80% of them. But the tone was just wrong for me. Happy for others to think differently though.

All in all not a bad issue, and certainly the best one for a while. Thank you to the team for their hard work as ever.

Good issue. Only just got round to reading it!
