The Super Play supplement is awesome.
And a nice variety of topics again.

Grabbed it earlier. Never read Super play back in the day so whilst I'm sure it will be fun it has no nostalgia for me. Looking forward to reading it.

Good issue, glad people are liking the supplement, hopefully will mean more in future. The YS one several years ago was truly excellent, so the prospect of another is great. As I've mentioned previously I think theres a great deal of interest in the older mags, so a monthly feature on the history of the likes of YS, Zzap!, SU, C&VG, Arcade, AP, Atari User, etc etc would be most welcome. Many had interesting histories and went through several stages of evolution before their ultimate demise.

Wouldn't it be awesome if they re-printed magazines from back in the day? :P

Great issue so far! :) Really enjoying it as always. I have one question though: With this month being the 40th anniversary of the Atari 2600, why having the PCEngine in front? :D

I don't post on here very often but had to chime in say what a great issue this is. So many good articles to read; PC Engine, Moon Patrol, Mayhem in Monster Land, Best Speccy Games and the list goes on.
