Proud to say we have a major plus to the site today, a developer interview with Sivak Games. The guys behind the homebrew release Battle Kid and a few tid bits on it's sequel. Also take a deeper look into what's involved in programming for the NES:

Was in the mood for some high fantasy so went and had a look at Rygar, which is a surprisingly good arcade port:

I realised over the weekend that I didn't have any reviews in the 0-9 section, so I fluffed it a bit and did a 10 Yard Fight review. I know it could be classed as Ten but bleh :lol:

Stalled a bit at the moment as I'm saving up to move. But I'm only about 50 carts away from the full set and none of them are rare :)

Wow, what a month! The mag continues and is almost complete (i'll be able to get some sleep at night :D ) but we have had a few volunteers offer reviews in the past few weeks, the latest is a look at Castlevania 2:

It's taken me months but I've finally started posting the scanned issues of Total that I did. First 2 have gone up on the site and over the next few weeks I'll be posting the rest. They aren't available anywhere else so enjoy guys and a big thankyou to dste and Filecore for their donations, wouldn't have happened without all the issues they offered.

As for me I hope I don't have to scan another magazine for at least 5 years :lol:

And in other news...the mag is days away! Will be available soon :)
