Retro Gamer had a Making of Prince of Persia with Jordan Mechner back in issue 32 - it's on the EMag DVD. Very nice article too.

Pitfall has already had a making of. gamesTM did a big feature on Prince of Persia. And you'll have to be a bit more specific than just "music in video games". Licensed tracks? Samples? 8-bit maestros like Rob Hubbard. Narrow it down to one aspect, and you're more likely to see an article on it.
PoP has been in there too, more than once too, IIRC.

Ah well, I'm new to Retro Gamer and the various mags so I didn't know of those. Sorry. :oops:

i second the Gargoyle Games/FTL request! they were easily one of the top speccy devs...

and a bit of a random request: how about st brides? i'd love to know what happened to them. they were quite unique... :)

Would love a feature on Gargoyle Games.

Not keen personally on a retro look at the Sharp series of home computers, dont think theres hardly anyone here who downloads an emulator for this machine to play games on ?! Want to know about gaming on a variety of machines but not the rubbish ones

Yeah Ad Astra was one of the first games i played on the Speccy, really liked Lightforce back in the day as well.

Actually didnt get into Tir Na Nog but found it amazing to watch, my best mate loved adventure games so saw him play that a ton

FOR THE LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST AND ALL THE BLESSED SAINTS: "PLAYSTATION". Not a feature. No. I want the entire mag dedicated to Playstation. A playstation retro special. Playstation interviews. Playstation FPS games, Playstation driving games, Playstation hardware, Playstation arcade conversions, Playstation shmups, Playstation RPGs and Playstation peripherals.

50 Issues and no Playstation? Seriously? Honestly? WTF!? Does the magazine have a penchant for consoles with no games or something? Whatever the excuse is, I don't want to hear it (or indeed read it) just do it


I'll even set you up with an interview with dad: Ken Kutaragi. ;)


oh and another vote for Pacman.
