Much better issue than last month's, well done! Particularly liked the Paperboy and Lemmings articles and even the Amiga article was good even though it isn't one of my fave machines. Just need some Vic 20 stuff now!

I enjoyed the Thalamus article. They were one of the better publishers in the latter C64 years (the Creatures games and Summer/Winter Camp were favourites of mine) so it was nice to see them featured. I even won a Thalamus wristwatch in a Zzap competition back in the day (I was heart broken when I accidentally washed it and it broke).

Just got issue 39 yesterday. Read it all in an evening.

Favourite article was the Amiga one. I stupidly sold my vast Amiga collection in 1994. I will replace it one day.

I could'nt find a bad article in the mag. If there was a weak article, I would have to say it was the Duke Nukem one. I can't put my finger on why??

It just didn't seem as interesting as the others.

I have found the last 2 SNK parts very insightful, looking forward to next month.

Keep up the good work!!! :D

Glad you enjoyed it, check out the DVD Extra thread over the next few days for some more material...

All around the content this time is great, lots of interesting stuff and nice depth in many articles.

But the reviews section is quite a letdown this month: The selection of PSP games covered is a bit puzzling, i.e. I don't get the "retro" part in some of the selections, most notably "Crush". I'm a bit surprised there's no "Impossible Mission" review, I'd have thought with Retro Gamer obviously having a good relationship with System 3, Mark Cale would have given you a review copy...

I also feel that the scores are quite off for some games, there's something seriously out of whack when a terrible travesty like "Space Invaders Evolution" get's almost the same as a masterpiece like "Lumines 2" simply - the game has almost 100 skings instead of 40 this time (and lots more puzzles included) and you're marking it down simply because you don't like about 10 of them for being based on commercial tracks? Sorry, but that's baddly missing the mark...

It feels soullous and too similar to the first game, hence the low score.

Hey, it's only a score though and seeing it's a two page round-up out of 114 pages I wouldn't get too het up about it.

I have only gotten up to page 40-something yet, but how come that even on second try you can get Amiga stuff so messed up???

Butchers knife out as soon as I finish it all.

Please don't laugh! ha ha
Did this months RG come out earlier than usual? Seems like only a fortnight since the last once hit the shelves! Or is it just me losing all sense of time?

It spooked me out big time!

I'd have to say that as I merit each mag on personal preference, I will read about things/games I didn't know about - but I don't really care for them.

The only things I really managed to salvage from this current issue, was the 2ND excellent SNK feature and the Duke Nukem 3D story.

I am currently reading the Jetpac feature which is very interesting though.
