I think you are supposed to give us little snippets to whet our appetite!

I really look forward to the arcade conversion article. Or series you must mean. Seriously.
You can do this shallow, or real deep and technical. Don't screw this one up...

I'm looking forward to summer. I'm tired of getting up and coming home when its dark.

Wait. You mean the magazine.... Erm.... The Andy Davidson interview should be interesting. I remember when Worms was just a tanks-inspired game called Total Wormage.

Think of the old Retro Gamer arcade conversion pieces, sprinkle in a touch of the making of and leave it to bake for preciously 10 and a bit minutes. That should give you a rough idea of what we're doing.

Oh, and we've got some technical arcade gubbins lined up as well, don't you worry.

Aye! I'd agree with that. I thought the US Gold article was the best thing to appear in the new look range of RG's, so far. (Not that the other articles weren't good. I just thought the US Gold one was ace).

It took me right back to the days of flicking through 'Your Computer' and seeing all the 'All American Software' ads. I guess that would be late 1983 or early 1984.

I'm looking forward to the Taito Legends 2 review most of all! I'll have the collection bought by then anyway but I'll still look forward to it :)

I'm also looking forward to your SNES bit, about it being so versatile and all.

Well, we're out a day before the game's released (quicker if you've subscribed).

Oh, and all your technical questions about the compilation should hopefully be answered. I don't think we've missed anything out...

Ah good. I just noticed it now. 30th of March for the next ish.

It always takes a couple of days for it to appear on my local newsagents shelves anyway, then again sometimes it takes a couple of days for video games to appear on shelves too after their release.
