They already do, there's far more 360 stuff in the mag every month than there is DC for example...

I find it a bit sad that there isn't much Amiga coverage, when that is much more retro than the PS.
Exactly! :D

I've been subscribing for 6 months now and am still awaiting some juicy Amige coverage.

Maybe if I'm really lucky we'll get some DOS games? Yes, I know DOOM was DOS, but was so successful that it was really multi-format.

Sorry replied to the previous post before seeing this PC bit... grrr!
I want PC coverage, but of old DOS games. Probably in a small minority here, but does anyone remember the early Epic games (i.e. One Must Fall, Epic Pinball, Jazz Jackrabbit), Strike Fleet, Catacombs of the Abyss, etc.

I agree. Perhaps the PC was behind in action games but, by 1990, it was far ahead of pretty much everything else when it came to strategy games, RPGs, adventures and simulators.

Crikey, is it that long since we've covered some Amiga games?
Better rectify that with a six page making of one of Lucasarts best adventures in issue 51 then...

Eh...you'd better cover some Amiga original games; not PC conversions!

Oh hush now, I played it on the Amiga, that should be enough for you. ;)

At least tell me you had a HDD. Otherwise disk swapping would have been a nightmare. :)

I almost finished MI2 on Amiga with disc swapping. My save disc got corrupted when I had found all the 4 map pieces though... :evil:

How about some Lucasarts coverage that *isn't* an adventure title? How about Tie Fighter or X-Wing?

Or how about some Lucasfilm coverage which isn't a Star Wars tie in? Like The Eidolon, Koronis Rift, Ballblazer, Rescue on Fractalus! (or Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe for something newer)?

Any Amiga coverage is good enough for me - there's simply not enough. Give me some Moonstone or something please! :)

SWOS will do for now :P (or was that in 43 - don't have that one yet)

You might want to check out Total PC Gaming, which has three or four DOS/old PC titles covered each month in its Redux section.

SWOS was covered in my Sensible Soccer making-of (issue 43, p88).

How about more of the Cinemaware titles?

Wings & Rocket Ranger spring to mind.
