Blimey. Someone's been walking around with their eyes shut for the last 20 years or so.

Finally read the Geometry Wars article today. Found it very informative and may actually buy it now.

You're intentionally ignoring facts just to be insulting. How... completely unexpected...

Read it earlier ago and I thought the Collectors Corner section was interesting. Having this guy specialising in a lot of Super Famicom stuff, it really shows that he's got so much passion for other culture.

Another question, is he fluent with Japanese language?

You're the one ignoring facts if you think there's no way to review games - including unreleased ones - without official dev kit.

(You're also living in a fantasy land if you think Sony would or could take back dev kit anyway.)

For me this was one of the best RGs ever, and really set a new standard. In particular the Manic Miner screen by screen was very good, revealing a lot of new detail about both the game and the author. It was nice to see SMG getting a review too. I really enjoyed the magazine, thanks!

Thanks again for another fantastic issue. I'm a reader / subscriber since the relaunch and this is the best issue yet. Great cover. And as somebody else has mentioned I think the Matthew Smith article is the best Retro Gamer has published.

You have to ask, is he... you know... is he all right?

Just finished the mag - pretty much read it from cover to cover (except the JSW / EA bits)

Am intrigued to read next months article on the racers we have never even heard of.......

Dude.. the Smith stuff was hands-down the best thing in this month's mag, and that's coming from a former Speccy-hating 64-phile ;)
