F*ck a duck, every issue the cover gets better and better, please pass on my congrats to your art dept (or the person who does the cover?!?) they do a sterling job!

Ace, my fave game ever, can't get enough reading about DM. Looking forward to this issue more than ever.

Do a Strider issue. Dammit.

And Bionic Commando.

Believe it or not, I actually have a contact with Isuke (the guy who created Strider) but he's very reluctant to talk :D

Which in a way is probably a good thing, because once I have a making of that bad boy my work on RG will be done and I can embrace new technology again.

Gotta say, Strider, you folks do a fantastic job of picking wonderful, 'Buy Me!' covers each month. Whether they be recycled Oli Frey Newsfield paintings, or shots of hardware, they're always lush.

Makes me want to buy a copy whenever I see it in the shops (and I already subscribe!).

The Back to the Eighties was a bit all over the place with it's dates. It didn't seem to know if the year was 1983, 86 or 87 :lol:

The article was about 83 but the music singles had it as 86 and the news 87.

A bit sloppy but a great article and made me go all misty eyed about when I first really got into gaming on my Vic 20. I had all the top 5 games listed in that article. Gorf was a particular favourite.

Spent sometime flicking back through each issue last night (I have them all except for issue 1) and Im 90% certain that there hasnt been any articles on the Neo Geo consoles (not including Pocket). Any chance of something on this in the future Strider old chum? :lol:

The Neo Geo Pocket was featured in 20. I've a SNK feature lined up for a few issues time.

That'll do me :D The AES/CD are amazing machines and they seem to get little coverage in general, which is surprising seeing as they were available for nigh on 15 years.
