  1. Same old, same old.. Definately won't be renewing my sub.. this mag has been going stale, boring and predictable. I hate the layout, I hate the same old header font that has been used for years now. The screenshots are awful, small, cropped. What's the point of a screenshot if it's shit? Most of the writing is just uninspiring and unoriginal, one might just read a wiki article about a game instead. It's a waste of time and money. I wan't a retro mag in the line of the Edge Retro specials, why can't i have one?
  2. Not including Crazy Taxi in a Dreamcast Top 10 is like not including Commando in a Top 25 Run & Gun list.. oh, wait..
  3. Pretty disappointed to be honest, not the great 50th issue I've looked forward to. Still very low quality in many screenshots. Examples: Top 10 Dreamcast games. 10 ugly screenshots.. blurry, weird colors, cropped.. COME ON. Does not exactly show just how beautiful they look in real life. There are lots of others.. Lemmy (yes he is ugly by default but he deserves a decent shot at least), some of the Giana Sisters shots, Let's Go Jungle photo, some of the GTA shots. Same thing every month, don't you ever check how the images turn out before printing? I really do think the magazine is in great need of layout overhaul. I'm sorry but also content wise the magazine has started to slip over the last 6 months. And not having Crazy Taxi in the Top 10 Dreamcast games is truly BIZARRE. Not even F355 Challenge or Under Defeat, which both are way better games than MSR and Shikigami No Shiro 2, are considered (however F335 Challenge is mentioned in the article, I must check that one out).
  4. Lovely cover and it seems to be a good issue, looking forward to it.
  5. Also got mine yesterday, looks very good, although a few of my personal favorites from back then are missing.. But it's a great book, buy it if you haven't. I really hope there will be an Amiga one as well.
  6. Haven't got my copy yet.. is there any mention of the SNK Arcade Classics compilation out in April?
  7. Spectrum special.. that issue will probably last no longer than 5 minutes for me. Don't misunderstand me, I think the RG team is doing a good job putting the mag together (some more arcade/obscure would be nice though) but sorry, lately it feels like the magazine has been going downhill with all the really old stuff. #47 was pretty weak IMO. Others might not agree..
  8. One of my most anticipated releases were the "Sega's True Life Occupation series" compilation that was planned to be on the Dreamcast, with Emergency Call Ambulance, Brave Fire Fighters and Jambo! Safari. Still disappointed it wasn't released. http://www.geocities.com/damnd/truelife/index.html
  9. Only had an Amiga, don't know how the ST games were so.. Absolutely essential: It Came From The Desert Future Wars Stunt Car Racer IK+ Turrican North & South Speedball 2 Apidya Batman The Movie Blood Money Monkey Island 2 Gods Super Cars 2 Kick Off Lemmings The Chaos Engine Buggy Boy Lotus Turbo Challenge 2 Nitro The First Samurai Rocket Ranger Pinball Fantasies Pro Tennis Tour 2 Silk Worm
  10. Haven't got mine yet, but it's a nice cover. I really like the collector's corner and the old gaming magazines features in recent issues. I enjoy the arcade inspection very much too. Don't care much for the pre-1985 stuff though.. I'd like to see some/more of: The Great Giana Sisters Neo Turf Masters Emergency Call Ambulance Scud Race In The Hunt Raiden Fighters Jambo! Safari F355 Challenge Propeller Arena (and other unreleased games) More Amiga games Fujitsu FM Towns Sharp X68000 Naomi games/hardware Joystick/pad/controller article C64 & Amiga cracking/demo scene SID 6581 article Generally more obscure gaming - loved the gaming illuminati feature John did before he quit
  11. How will the book ship, in a box or envelope? Don't want to recieve it all messed up.
  12. Unfortunately it was partly ruined by the low quality screen shots, possibly some of the worst I've ever seen of Crazy Taxi.
  13. I'd also very much like to read about the Dreamcast in RG. They had articles about Sega Marine Fishing and Crazy Taxi last year so why not. It's 10 years old this year.
  14. Should Commando have been in your Top 25 of Run & Gun list?
  15. OutRun 2006 Coast 2 Coast Gradius V
  16. I'm getting tired of reading about Rare and their games.. otherwise it was an OK issue, I enjoy reading Stuart Hunt's articles. The compilation feature was a great idea, hope it will be a regular thing, screenshots would be nice though. Does anybody read the homebrew section? Waste of space.. Or the retro price listings? 6 pages wasted in my opinion.
  17. I will get this for sure! Hoping something related to Crazy Taxi is in there.
  18. Wow, looking forward to the Crazy Taxi making-of! That game is actually in my top-3 ever.. Also looking forward to reading the shmup and Arcade Inspection CPS2 article. Brilliant, Strider!!
  19. Yeah, everyone should check out what has happened this summer regarding the record.. Spoiler: http://www.twingalaxies.com/index.aspx?c=19&id=1465
  20. bought the PS2 PAL version of Metal Slug Anthology a while ago. it's crap, don't buy it. waste of money even though it's cheap. 50Hz, seems to in a strange interlaced resolution, screen positioned top left corner, huge border, laggy control. they really succeeded in ruin the games completely. for those of you who own the US or Japanese versions (PS2), what are they like?
  21. Crazy Taxi (ARCADE) OutRun 2006 Coast2Coast (PS2) Gradius V (PS2) Ferrari F355 Challenge (ARCADE) Under Defeat (DC) Rez (DC) Viewtiful Joe (PS2) Sonic Adventure (DC) Le Mans 24 Hours (DC) Super Monkey Ball (GC/PS2)
  22. wow, really looking forward to them!
  23. A lot of N64-games lately.. when are you going to start to cover the Dreamcast? I remember you did a thing on Sega Marine Fishing quite a while ago.
