I was really happy to get both GTM and RG yesterday... like my birthday or something :)

I thought RG was fantastic this month, and the articles really did grab me (Gauntlet feature, Ocean write up, Palace write up, The Making of Worms & Bloodwych and a great Desert Island Disks with Malcom Evans being particular favourites).

The extra "making of" and "company profiles" are a great idea. I hope its something that can be kept up.

Funny also to see the Joke C64 game given a little write up near the end :)

I take it this means UK subscribers didn't get the new issue today? The agony of waiting is even worse for mainland Europe readers when you know it hasn't even arrived yet for Brits... sigh.

At least I know I should get the issue, thanks to the letter Imagine sends when you subscribe. I have to say I'm a little bit impressed by this, as most companies usually don't bother sending more than an email notice (at times not even that is done).

Nope, not received yet - keenly waiting as this issue looks excellent. Can't wait to check the Bloodywych feature. And Gauntlet. And Ocean. And and and...

Edit: (I'm a subscriber, this will be my first issue since purchasing the subscription - got the confirmation letter that my sub starts with issue 23)

Well I'm REALLY looking forward to the Malcolm Evans DesertIslandDisks and the Ocean ad Palace write ups. I agree that this "behind the scenes" and "anecdotes from the guys who were there" stuff is superb.

Bit weird why the subscribers not getting theirs yet considering I bought mine in the newsagent yesterday.

Yes. I got my three free issues and a subscribers issue and they've always arrived early but 23 isn't here yet.

Thought it might just be me, but I'm encouraged to read that I'm not the only one. Still, confident that it'll arrive tomorrow.

There's a similar subs problem with the latest issue of GamesTM - Over at their forum, a few people hadn't receievd their copies this week, despite it being in the shops at the end of last week.

What version of Taito Legends 1 did Damian Butt play? Because my Xbox version had The New Zealand Story on it.

He's actually said it hasn't been included for a second time, meaning "I love the New Zealand Story so much I wanted it on this compilation as well".

I guess you can read it both ways :)
