Making of Katakis and making of Pirates. Also an article about the Quake series and an overview about the Street Fighter games in chronological order. Because there are so many SF titel out i have no idea which game out first and how it all makes sense story wise.

Please no. I've yet to see one of these that isn't full of below par childish scribbles. It would detract from the image of the mag and reduce its perceived target age, looking like a kids Ninty mag (I've no idea why there are no adult Ninty mags, they're all awful).

Speaking of which, I'd like to see more Amiga screenshots. Sometimes there seems to be a bit too much love for 8-BIT screenshots.
Just a bit.

Did I say "please"?

People who know me, know that the Amiga is my pleasure when it comes to retro gaming - it holds a place in my heart - so because of that ...... I'm with you on having more Amiga screenies.

How about a feature on Duke Nukem Forever? It's been in development for so long it's already retro before it's even been released.
It's called a MEGADRIVE

True! I wouldn't mind seeing something about the C64GS - espcially as we've done the GX4000. Which also then means that there has to be an RI on the CD32 and CDTV.

Stephen Crow, Costa Panayi, Pete Cooke and any other prolific speccy programmers.......

HIGHWAY ENCOUNTER........

Just a page on it.....other people will then play it and love it too....

One of the best 8 bit games in my humble opinion.

Postage stamp article - other than the joystick having 2 buttons it was a pile of censored - Despite my C64 loving, at least the Amstrad console had some specific stuff - The C64GS had nothing and was almost as ugly as Mrs Blair.

I say do a C16 introspection and do it soon..........

i wouldn't mind seeing a piece on the Philips G7000 as it was my first console...other than that, a 2 part history on music/sound in video games with features on different types of synthesis/sound chips that were used over the years....im not entirely sure if this is too geeky even for retro gamer though...haha x

I remember the G7000 - my best mate had one - brings back so many memories.
