Been a while since the last update due to lingering health issues that I'm having to be dealth with.
But anyway, here is the latest issue of Mean Machines.
We start of this update with A Boy and His Blob for the NES,
followed by two more NES games: Solstice and Super Spike V'Ball.
Then we look at one of the very first Super Famicom reviews from Mean Machines: F-Zero.
And finally we take a look at a rather underrated game for the Mega Drive: WrestleWar.

The free super fast downloads without limits have been reset for this months, so if you are looking to grab any missing magazines, now would be a good time. Wink

Seems like people are really taking this to heart. Not even 48 hours later we only have 60GB of super fast downloads left. Smiley

This time we return to 1993 with the latest fully restored issue of Super Play.
It's been a while since we released the last issue of Super Play,
but that is because this issue needed some extra polish and attention before it was ready to be released.
Have a quick look at one of the pages that needed some extensive work.
As always, we have selected four preview articles so you can get a feel for the issue while the full magazine is downloading.
The first feature takes a look at Video Game Music and the people who create it.
Then we take an in-depth look at Street Fighter II Turbo.
And finally we look at the review for Super Bomberman as well as the Japanese only release of SD Great Battle III.


Super Play 9 - july 1993 (UK)

Super Bomberman (review)

Thank you. Smiley

Sadly it seems like I'm starting to get worse again after nearly a week of thinking I was on the road to getting healthy again.
Spent 4 hours yesterday afternoon sleeping on my couch, which is something I never do, expect for when I feel absolutely dreadful. The throat problems seem to coming back combined with the enormous headaches, muscle aches, upset stomach and pure exhaustion without even lifting a finger.
Might be because the doctor told me to stop taking my meds last week since I have an appointment at the hospital tomorrow to see a specialist. Not a big fan of having a tube stuck down my throat, but it's time they finally found out what's wrong with me...
Hopefully it's nothing too bad.
Might indeed just be a case of way too much stress coupled with exhaustion. Those who know what my living conditions have been for the past 3+ years might understand a little better. (ie terrible neighbours and all the fun that comes with that) not being able to get a decent night sleep for about 8 months now probably didn't do me any good either, coupled with the night shifts and all that...
Probably not a big surprise that my health is suffering.

Hopefully it's just a bug that's highly immune to antibiotics coupled with the above.
Well, see tomorrow I guess. If this doctor actually is able to find something concrete...

Long term illness isn't good so do what you need to do to get to the bottom of it. Can't get fixed if you don't have a diagnosis so here's hoping he knows his stuff.

Brilliant as always Meppi . I do sincerely hope you get better and the hospital can sort you. Health is THE most important thing in the world, as without good health everything becomes harder to do. Wishing you a speedy recovery Buddy Smiley

Thanks guys! Smiley

Just got back from the hospital and it was all good news. Well compared to what I was expecting anyway.
No signs of any serious problems in my throat or sinuses, so luckily that's all good.
I do have to start taking the stomach protectors again, but this time for at least 6 weeks and then go back for a checkup.
After I told her the whole story of everything that happened and all the antibiotics that I've taken over the past months, coupled with the medical examination, she concurs that most likely it's due to severe over-exhaustion coupled with extreme levels of stress which screws up my stomach, which in turns burns my throat due to the acid...
So again, I'll need to take things very slowly and get as much rest as I can.

Now if only the retard next door would get on with it and stop screwing around with his shitty house... Normally it should have been finished in 5-6 months top. Right now we are at month 9 and going, while all he has to show for it is the foundations and a couple of walls along with a half-finsihed roof.
Yet he's here all the time pretending to work on it, making a lot of noise, yet accomplishing nothing besides making sure I don't get a decent night sleep. sigh...

Glad to hear it's nothing serious.  Not getting a good night sleep doesn't do anyone any good either.  Some people have no consideration for others.

Tell me about it. It's Saturday afternoon and the idiot is back at it again. Seemingly drilling 15 holes into every brick in his house just like yesterday.
Found a "solution" for it so to speak. I put on some long wrestling PPV and turn up the volume quite a bit for noise cancellation. Then put earbuds in, put a big over-ear headphone on and then listen to music or a podcast.

Certainly not optimal, but it helps from going on a killing spree. Wink

To bad I can't do this at night. :-/

Then we go on to features for Real Bout Fatal Fury as well as Virtual On for the Saturn,
but also Sega Touring Car Championship, Virtua Fighter 3 and X-Men vs. Street Fighter,
all of which are for the arcade versions.
Finally we have a couple of reviews for the Sega Saturn: Street Fighter Alpha 2, Tomb Raider and World Series Baseball 2.

Seems like there's a problem with the downloads from file factory. Not sure what's going on but free members aren't able to download any magazines while I can still download the same files from my premium membership.

Probably just a server thing on their side, but I still contacted then to make sure.
Wonder how long it'll take before they get back to me.
