On sale at GoG at the moment for the grand sum of 59p if you can afford it.

Weirdly, not a game in my GoG library yet despite regular sales. I think I've put off buying as I only have a 10" screen and tiny text is too much for this old man's eyes.

^Cheers i'll read that article and have a look. Saying that most of my Steam gaming is done on my GPD Win so small text may be an issue !

Poor front cover. Even worse than the SNK subscriber one!

Content looks good.

No issue for me, hope the Edge curse that I have hasn't now become a Retro Gamer one too

Very bland and boring subscriber cover AGAIN. Sadly, not much in this issue for me so most probably take me all month to get through it.

This is the first issue in ages where i've flicked through it and nothing has jumped out at me as a must read. I'll still enjoy reading it, but not Dog's Life which is really not something I'd expect to find in RG.

I've never liked the subscriber covers. I wish i could get the normal one - always more going on, which I like.

Ah well. I mean, i'll still read it :D

I'm not usually overly fussed about the minimalist subs covers - sometimes they work, sometimes just a bit meh. But I have to say that the latest one is terrible! It looks like someone started doing it but lost interest, thought f*ck it, and left it unfinished!

Not even got to open it yet - but the weekend is here so will have a good read.

Interested with the RE2 feature, that's for sure. Not sure if a lot of the rest grabs me really. But keen to hear how good that RE2 feature is.

The 100th Ultimate Guide this month is Vigilante.

From issue 200 onwards I would like to see the “old!” dropped from the cover.

Started reading this now and I have to say I really enjoyed the Tony Takoushi interview, made me go and find a scan of that last Big K mag so I could read the programmer superstars interview.

Glad it made you smile. The interview he did with Jeff Minter for a Big K cover story is definitely worth a read too while you're there!
