Arrived today but haven't taken it out of the packaging yet. I admit that's not the greatest feedback but it's a start and will open it tomorrow!!

Too much Sonic but otherwise quite a good issue.

I really enjoyed the ZX81 article and also the handheld feature, both very good reads.

Really impressed with the Delphine Software article, and interesting to hear from a different player in the Sonic story.

Nice issue, enjoyed the Greg Tavares interview in particular. The print quality wasn't great this time - particularly in the review section and the readers letters - a lot of blurry headings and screenshots. I don't think it was the whisky.

Really nice cover. Really good edition so far.

This had a few good pieces but somehow it didn't really bring out my enthusiasm. I think I'll just leave it at that and look forward to #159.

Oddly, I felt the same. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed quite a lot (most) of it, but the Smash Bros, Future Classic and From the chair this month just didn't do it for me.

Also, I find it interesting that GTA V is a future classic. I mean given, right there in the article it says that each successive GTA makes the previous ones irrelevant, will V still be a future classic once VI comes out? And you do realise that soundtrack you praised so highly will be patched out eventually, right?

Anyway, it felt like a waste of a couple of pages trying to convince a world where GTA V still features regularly in the top 10 charts every week, that they should play GTA V :lol:

Also, why didn't the Vita get full marks for tech? It has two bloody cameras! Two! And an accelerometer and a touchscreen and the back is a touch pad and two analog sticks and every wireless standard known to man and an OLED screen and *takes breath* it's the most powerful handheld ever made! What else do you want?
