The 8th issue in the Gamesmaster Presents series. Bit too expensive for my liking at £7.99 for a magazine.

For those of you have bought the Gamesmaster presents issue on the Sonic 20th anniversary then you're not exactly missing out on too much. It's basically a cut down of that with some minor alterations.
That said, there is some nice additions to the magazine too with Mario on side and Sonic on the other.
A nice and interesting 4 page article on Sonic Xtreme, a section discussing the early development of Sonic 1. You also receive some generic Classic Sonic 3 stickers of sprites and two very large double sided posters of Mario and Sonic respectively. Was very miffed at the fact that there was no article on Sonic 4: Episode 2 though.

Here's some shots of the mag in spoilers because of image size everything's in spoilers now.
Also my camerawork is awzums!

EDIT: pictures fixed.

Wow, I might actually have to shell out for this, despite my hatred of Gamesmaster. I'm in love with the Sonic poster! Edge already did a better Mario one though, so that could go to somebody who would like it but doesn't want to pay for the magazine. That's if I do get it. =P

PM me if you're interested!

I need that in my life. If someone would pick it up for me I'd cover it shipping and I guess a little extra to make it worth it. Maybe £7.99 is a bit much but idk

If there's any left. I'll grab some for people in the States willing to buy them.

Not sure if I want this. Kinda do, since I'm a fan of both series. But I don't know GamesMaster very well and if their articles are up to scratch.

Might pick one up if I see it. I didn't make an active hunt for the last one but ended up with it anyway =P

For those in the U.K., I got my copy from WHSmith. Didn't really look for it anywhere else.
