Hi Dave,

thank you for it all, it must have taken a great effort to put everything together :) There were some genuinely hilarious moments :lol:

And thanks to everyone else who contributed to it ;)

However, there is something wrong with the AGD book - and I am not referring to the scores :P although I believe quite a few of them could have been higher (not only those of some of my games of course ;) ). If I choose the Slideshow option, then the Keyboard again, I am stuck with Slideshow when I start the book.

Great stuff!

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful with this project, real life sucks. So this time I'll be just a consumer but next time I'd really love to be a contributor.

As for now I've read the magazine and I really like the sense of humour. In the coming days I'll be playing the games, especially Bean Brothers, I guess :)
