RESIDENT EVIL 2 was the first and only game I played on a PC. 

I don't think the first two were ever equalled.

Alone in the Dark was a big influence on Resident Evil as was Capcom's own Sweet Home, a survival horror RPG on the Nintendo Famicom.

Issue #180 of UK magazine RETRO GAMER, which will be out on the 19th April, will have an article on Spider-Man. This is the blurb:

How Marvel's web-slinger overwhelmed gamers when he swung onto Sega's consoles.

Should be interesting!

CVG was such a great mag. One of the first UK publications to cover the Japanese console scene.

I always thought that "generalist" magazines covering numerous consoles were a hard sell. 

I could be wrong, but statistically speaking, aren't there likely to be more folk who own one console than those who own many? 

I didn't always buy generalist magazines. Back in the early 2000s, I only had a PlayStation, so picking up a magazine that also covered Xbox and Nintendo games didn't appeal to me.

Anyone played through FAR CRY 5 yet?  I'm a big fan of the franchise, but I gotta say that the ending not only came out of left field but it was pretty horrible all the way 'round.  Interested in having an inviso-text discussion with those that have finished it.

Theme Hospital was bloody brilliant Robbie and the fact that both Mark Webley and Gary Carr are working on Two Point Hospital has me very eager for the game.

Going back to your point about multi format magazines Robbie, CVG was one of the biggest and longest running mags in the business.

Certainly myself and my friends of that era enjoyed reading about all the systems and not just about the ones we owned.

GoW is in my Amazon queue.  I'll probably pull the trigger on it today based on the universally great reviews I've read.  Never played a game in the franchise, but I read that this is a good jumping on point for someone like me.

Iím interested in God of War, but I get the impression that itíll have an eventual Game of the Year edition, so Iíll wait for that.
