Looks like an awesome issue. Can't wait till mine arrives! Super Famicom minority report should be interesting.

I don't own a single Rare N64 game, so I'm looking forward to seeing what I'm missing.

Damn that's a nice cover! Love the Japanese Megadrive background :mrgreen:

Glad to see Samba De Amigo make the cover as well, it's without a doubt my favourite Dreamcast title and is somewhat what got me into rhythm games in the first place

No Mk1 Mega Drive/Mega CD for the cover? Tut, tut...for shame...

:wink:
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

The MK1 MD & MegaCD combo is a thing of beauty, the MK2 looks like a kidstoy you'd get in Home Bargains.

Still, that lovely Japanese MD box art is in the background so that saves it...just!

Most interested in the Yars' Revenge article, to be honest. Actually, that Atari artwork would have made for a superb cover!

Never a big fan of games machines on the cover; at least this one is a little more interesting with a specced-up console.

Just turned up, fair bit for me this month with some good articles. The Robocop article looks great as does the Operation Wolf one. Got a fair bit in it for me, interested in the Apple article as well.

Another excellent mix of features.
Highlights for me were Martyn's excellent Op Wolf guide, Craig's look back at Apple and Denis Murphy on Omikron (a game I never played but have always been intrigued by).

Just been reading the Robocop article, very enjoyable. Always been a big fan of the movies and the game (Speccy of course)
