Just legged it into town to try and get this ! They havent got it yet though, doh !

Does look great though, the last compilation was brilliant and one of the mags i've read most.

Cant wait to get this !

Can we order this from the subs line ?

Is the Capcom feature the only new content, or everything on that list?

From the way you've written it, it looks like just Capcom...

WHS in Halifax don't have it in yet so will have to keep checking. Like others Retro Anthology 1 was one of my fave ever reads. I don't get amesTM very often so it will be almost all new content for me :D

Just been into whs at meadowhall to get this month's issue and it's not in there yet, it's got to be worth getting just for that cover though.

I would assume you could get it through the WHSmiths website (though haven't looked)

As mentioned above, the only new feature is the Capcom one. Regular GamesTM readers will have the rest already. Way to skim money off loyal readers GamesTM :evil:

At least last time there was more than one new article.
