Congrats on getting a full issue out under these conditions.

EDGE was just a catalogue of games last month.

Edge was a carefully curated list of games that make people happy / lower stress / offer something offer than death & destruction at a difficult time. I thought it was impressive.

I haven't got mine either. Some mags must be delayed this month.

Loved the article about the recent developments in CPC Homebrew, it boggles my mind how much that machine can be pushed given it's lack of any real custom hardware (well on the 464/6128 anyway).

Isn't it funny that one month you can relate to and enjoy almost every article then the following month very little springs out and smacks you in the face! Issue 207 is the latter :(

But with time on my hands, I'll give it a damn good read. I may even read the 'Is the Amstrad the best 8-bit' :D

Always loved Shadowman (and it's soundtrack), so certainly keen on that feature first

Thanks for a near full issue, read it cover to cover, very enjoyable and kept my mind going during my covid recovery and isolation.
Atari 800XL thrashes the C64 every time!!!
(well, nearly everytime)

Nothing of any interest for me this month. The crossword was a nice idea though.
