I wonder why? ;-) It certainly took a while for your column to appear though, I didn't see it in issue 89 or even 90 when scanning forward.

The issues are getting better all right even with the lack of big original releases and slow death of the market. :) and :(

Because the decision to rebrand as Commodore Force had already been taken and thus my column launched with issue 1 of C-Force...

Iss 90 done. Round up of film licences, great PD section, Lash gone. Things are looking up for Commodore Force

Iain ‏@ZZAPRRAP 27 Dec


On issue 90, the last official issue of Zzap!64. Bash gets rid of Whiplash from the letters section, Barbarian style! http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... azine=zzap

I recognised a name in this list! @donncha http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... azine=zzap … Surprising the amount of Irish people in that list actually.

Commodore Force issue 1 (Zzap 91) is done. Lloyd is back! Chris Hayward and The Mighty Brian join the team. Roundup of Fighting games.

Iain ‏@ZZAPRRAP 19 Jan

I always find the old Silica adverts interesting. Here's a page for the Amiga http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... azine=zzap … and the Atari ST http://www.zzap64.co.uk/cgi-bin/display ... azine=zzap

Iain ‏@ZZAPRRAP 19 Jan

I hope nobody bought an Atari ST at that late stage. It didn't last much longer!

Your twitter account is already on the ex staff list on Twitter but I don't know if anybody checks that, I should probably just follow the people on the list.
