Jon Hare stops by to talk about the evolution of Parallax, Sensible Software's first title.

Company Profile
Thalamus was one of the darlings of the C64 but then everything went disasterously wrong...

The Art of C&VG
In a break from hus usual definitive guide, Stuart Campbell decides to gush over the varied artwork of Computer and Videogames

The Making of Duke Nukem 3D
Once upon a time he was just content to feature in simple platformers, but then the duke decided to leap into the third dimension. This is the story of Duke Nukem 3D

Developer Lookback - SNK
with a company as longstanding as SNK you have to do it proper justice, so here's the second part of our trilogy.

The Making of Lemmings 1 & 2
They're easily the most recognisable videogame rodents of all time. Find out how they became so popular.

Haven't finished the last mag yet - Is it now twice weekly rather than monthly -cool!

Got confused at first and thought it was a copy of Zzap64 - think Mr Frey should do all of the covers from now on

Flicked through, really liked the Amiga bit. Glad the ads have gone and hope it won't affect the quality / quantity going forwards.

I glad to see that mr. Campbell will write about other things than definitive guides. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy them very very much, but it's nice to see RG mixing things up to keep them fresh. And mr. Campbell is the perfect guy for all things retro, even more so since the sad departure of Szczepaniak. The cover looks great! Do you think mr. Frey will one day make a brand new one for RG, and not just an old Zzap/Crash one?

From what i've looked at so far another great issue,

Was looking at the retro sites at the back(page 105) and it lists a screenshot archive site.

www.localarcade.com/screenshotarchive

Has any body had problems accessing the site? i keep getting page not found.

Looks like a good issue, I've got a quick question though; I subscribed to the mag and got an email on the 12th of June to confirm the subscription and say it could be "up to 28 days" before delivery of the first issue. So what I was wondering is, am I likely to get this issue by subscription, or would the subscription start from Issue 40? Just wondering so I know if I should go out any buy this issue or not in a few days. Thanks.

Looks like another good issue, like the artwork although I thought it was Doom being featured!

Love the Duke Nuke em piece, full of great stuff and info, I cant help taking great delight in the follow up being in development hell for almost ten years, wonder if Chinese Democracy will make up its sound track.

Great issue! Thought the last few issues have been slightly off the boil, but still good, this one much much better.

Best features - Paperboy, still a game I like to play occasionally; Amiga feature - I had a 1200 but this baby started it all off shame they never relaly cought on; Parallax; enjoyed the article but never a game I got into really; Thalamus - great company' C&VG artwork, yes very good indeed; Lemmings - in fact all the articles are ace.

Not as good as the last issue, but then than some previous ones. Where is Archer? Liked the Amiga 500 article and paperboy. Would like to see some more articles on mags of yesterday year (gaming ones ofcourse) :wink:
