Just a GamesTM Anthology 2 please. The first one was excellent so the same thing with Imagines better design style would be FAB
I'd much rather have that, tbh.

I was kidding about the bumper anthology :lol:

A gamesTM one is long overdue though...

I got the Anthology yesterday, I missed some the first issues that came out. I really enjoyed reading the articles I missed.

Really wish I had managed to get the RG First Anthology now.......
Please Sir I cannot tell a lie......

I thought the first one was amazing. I still use it for reference now. Is there going to be a second one?

I hope not. I like being subversive.

I bought the new anthology yesterday and about half way through - excellent design and some really good new content - well done again and great to see the magazine back to full strength and more!

For those interested, the Super Mario Wacky Worlds interview snippets were kindly donated by Devin Shockwell of The Black Moon Project, a CDI resource hub. I was basically told to use whatever I liked. :)

If you'd like to check out the lengthier uncut interviews, they're available here:
http://www.classicgaming.com/blackmoon/int_jbrooks.asp
http://www.classicgaming.com/blackmoon/int_mfoulger.asp
http://www.classicgaming.com/blackmoon/sta_silas.asp

Of course you only get the custom screengrabs I took when reading the anthology. :)

For those people of a naughty enough disposition, there are illicit binaries (which people who are mindful of the law should avoid) of the game floating around in the usual bad internet places that people aren't allowed to speak about. ;)

And it runs just fine in the only exisiting CDI emulator:
http://www.cdiemu.org/

Though the system ROMs might be difficult to track down. Don't ask me about these though, I used the original hardware.

It seems to be in a lot more newsagents than RG usually is, probably because it is part of the Elite series which has a much more mainstream focus usually. I picked up the anthology in a tiny newsagents that has never stocked RG.
