‘Christmas time, mistletoe and whine (whoops sorry, wine), children
singing Christian rhyme’ and all that load of soporific seasonal Cliff
Richard garbage! Thank God it’s all over, I say.
Yes folks, Chrimbles has come and gone, 1992 is rapidly approaching
and soon we’ll all be Euro-peeps, spending ECUs and yabbering away in
blinkin’ froggy-speak (no offence intended to our French readers —
Corky’s really looking forward to it, though. He keeps coming into the
office with frilly skirts on, doing the Can-Can on the desks and saying
‘ooh la-la’ a lot (at least he did until Nicko bashed him with a large lump
hammer, now he just says ‘ooooch’ a lot).
One good thing about this European lark, I’m reliably informed by a
very top flabby Euro-prat that the price of booze is gonna plummet in our
beloved country when we become one with all them foreigners.
Anyway, back to CRASH. As you can see, we’ve got the mega Bounces
and the last Spy Vs Spy instalment on the cover tape, as well as the
return of Pokemania (now known as Poke Zone ’cos some other BAST
’arf-inched our original title). We’ve got all the other regulars — previews,
reviews, tips etc — a new technical page and much more besides. Dive in
And since it’s a new year and ’cos we love you so much etc etc, we’ve
got a FULL COLOUR issue this month! And what’s more, we’re gonna try
and keep it that way — 100% colour, 100% Speccy. 100% brilliant!!
See y’all next month
OLI FREY’S 1992!
Here you go, all — the second part of our fantastico double
sided poster-calendar, brought to you courtesy of the wonderfully mega-brill
talents of Oliver Frey (autographs by appointment only). Unless you’re a
complete drongo, you’ll have saved the other half of the poster from last
month’s issue. Now all you do is rip it out, cut off the little white bits at
the edges, get out the sticky tape, stick ’em together and slap it on the wall.
