Mhhh, don't be so negative to fast. Most of their arcade coverage are usually well done, sure not perfect and always 'not enough' for 'die hard arcade experts' like us  ::)
Let's wait 'till reading the article before comments...Yoda says  ;)

How can there ever be an article about a certain game without a picture of the very first original version ?

Its like, hey I am writing an magazine article about the history of Volkswagen and not putting in a picture of the first Beetle.....

...In a general way, I prefer to wait and see the final 'thing' before judging it, that's all simple  ;)

I still love the mag but the last 2 are still in the foil because i dident have the time to read them.

Is there a legal way to get the digital version of the mag when you are subscribed for the paper one? Then i could read it on the go.

just sorry to see the price issue ,  ~13€ shipped,  last one i got.

__

about Robotron.. do they comment about the "Terminators"   because it's the exact word on the game !!?!.    it's more than coincidence that James Cameron got inspiration for his movie..  it's the same purpose !!!!!  teleported warrior that protects wifes/kids from nearly unstoppable Terminators !!!

Why not get a subscription, then you pay about € 80 for 13 issues, about € 6 per issue, including postage. Not bad after all. And the good thing is that they seem to have covered all ancient micro´s and they are moving on to the NES/SNES era, and they are also covering more and more arcade stuff.
