That's why you find blank/missing pages in those saved Speccy and C64 magazines online.
I agree that Amiga Magazine preservation is THE most important thing. I have to admit i am somewhat mystified by these journalists reactions to their old work.

Probably the ones that raved about Rise of the Robots, or the ones that reviewed PC versions of games and wrote Amiga reviews based on them.

Or for the rare journo's still in the trade, it seems like they prefer to,(or cater towards),the PC crowd by either a)Making fun/ spurning old 8bit/16bit home computer gaming, or
b) Be revisionists & pretend that computer gaming didn't exist on any formats before the PC, or those "old classics" originated on the PC eg:Lemmings.

Actually an article in the local edition of PC Format claimed the exact same thing a few years ago. From journos clearly being there while being Amiga Format... Call it a coincidence, but they went bankrupt not much after
Too bad they are out again.
