It has come to our attention that some of our readers have been concerned for the whereabouts of UK:R operative Jon M. All sorts of rumours abounded that Jon had been captured by a gang of fanatical retro gamers. Held against his will, he was made to type in code listings from eighties computer magazines on a rubber spectrum keyboard before being strapped to a chair and made to visit every planet in the Elite universe -- twice! Other reports had him being kidnapped by Sony-funded Yakuza and brainwashed in an attempt to lure him to the 'Other Side'. Another said he had committed suicide in a bizarre Hari Kari ritual. Unable to cope with the demise of the Sega hardware division he threw his Dreamcast from a second floor window and stabbed himself with a shard of plastic from it's smashed casing.

Some say he never existed in the first place and was just an excuse to use for the non-funny bits. Whatever, Jon has returned which can mean only one thing. An extra 2.4378 updates per year!

Sad Gaming Truths That You'd Better Learn To Live With
#1: Games will never be 'accepted'

It will never be cool to admit you are a gamer. So what if the games industry is worth more than the movie industry? That's just because it costs you forty quid to buy a game and £150 for the box to play it on. You know why there isn't a good TV programme about games? Because watching two kids playing Tekken is stupid and boring. Did you see GameStars? Tragic. No one will ever like you because you play games. Deal with it.

Wankers who always talk about 'The Industry'

Are you one of those journalists/developers/PR people that always whinge about people not taking 'The Industry' seriously? Stop moaning will you? Who cares if a load of kids get in to trade shows, they pay your fucking wages. And what's wrong with 'Booth Babes'? Don't you like girls or something? Or would you rather have a group of men in suits with their arms folded talk all serious to you? For a business that's supposed to be based on having FUN you're a pompous, humourless lot. How many interesting personalities are there in the games 'industry'? I bet you can count them on one hand. Now do the same for music and films. Why do you even play games? Couldn't you get a job in Insurance?

Sega folding bike -- exclusive review
Everyone's talking about it but we've managed to secure a copy of Sega Folding Bicycle!

Graphically it looks good, the 3D modelling is impressive, especially the curved surfaces. The controls are fairly responsive and utilise the standard 'handlebar' layout which manages to convey a realistic feeling of riding a bike. Sound was a bit disappointing, the bell only made a monotone 'ding'. Couldn't they have got Richard Jacques in to come up with something better? The foldability adds a certain puzzle element but only gave us about an hour of gameplay before we sussed it out and it's not likely to keep you coming back for more. So, in an already overcrowded genre Sega has struggled to inject anything really new. 68%

Sleb spot. Phil Snape, Tools and effects coder Bizarre Creations spotted buying packet of Fruit Pastilles in a newsagent. Mick Hocking, programmer Evolution Studios seen filling his car with petrol and then buying a Cornish pasty. Well, seeing at it contained PEAS, it was more of a meat pie than a Cornish pasty. Cornish pasties don't have peas in. Or carrots.
