loved the issue, so much good stuff. Conan... wow that was a great surprise, just painfully short though, I wish it was an interview twice as long! The Jet Set Willy feature was fantastic, Matthew Smith is such an interesting individual, and a laugh to boot. And as mentioned above by Whazeboo, Fist II was great, that's one game that always mystified me because it really could have been a classic in my opinion but was just not thought through quite enough and the interview and article was an excellent read. 39% is brutal in my opinion, but there's no doubt it was a frustrating game.. and boy did they sink the boots in because of it.

Terrific issue, and what a treat to see Conan in there, more Apple II stuff, please!! ;) Love it.

Own up, who is the world record holder on Pole Position?

Over 69k is an awesome score that is featured in issue 201.

That was me, and I absolutely did not cheat (uncrosses fingers) :wink:

Really kinda disgusted at the Nintendo pamphlet; that thing should have been clearly marked as the bare-faced paid advertising that it is. Otherwise loved the issue.

I thought the Nintendo mag thing was ace! Saved me 10% on the kids Christmas Present. Also, if you don't like the thing, just lob it in the bin!!! Pointless getting upset about it.

Agreed.

Did any subscribers get that thing? Mine didn't come with it though I've had several emails from Nintendo telling me one is coming!

Seems it might depend on whether you have more than one Future subscription. I got one separately in the post.

So weird... I sub but didn't get one, you did. Someone else with a sub didn't get the calendar, but I did.
