Dudes, I vote 10 just for the musical content itself. Great stuff and nice read even with some of those non-superb researched articles. Who cares for real!? it's for free, it's true scene spirit with awesome support. Keep'em comin'!

Always informative, always up-to-date. Many sceners are scarily busy with their ordinary lives... reading up on the last episode of Vandalism News is quite the update you need! Glad that I was pushed by Magic Nah to ... well, anything for the magazine... in time (or barely) =D

I'm glad Laxity did this obscure tune for the release too. Of course great efforts by the other composers, too! =)

I enjoyed the episode a lot. I'm mostly grateful that Benn (Ben Daglish) was highlighted in this one... We truly lost a legendary C64 soul there... (and a true artist!)

All with all, this is an episode that sticks to my brain.

Great graphics, amazing coding (even though it's "just" a disk-mag)... ;) But just it is.

Wave: you must be mistaken with an earlier issue.. This was just by coincidence we got in a talk after X when issue 68 was right about finished :) Thanx again btw! But it would have been better in the X sid compo for sure!

I'm busy as fuck with things, but I had a last minute implementation of the SID tune I actually prepared for X-2018. I overslept the deadline for making it a "run"-able PRG file (hung out with C64 people till dawn)... Oh well, shit happens, but now it's still out there and in Vandalism News #68, thanks to Magic Nah for nagging me to death for a tune for VN#68... Here it is... Of course all credit goes to my old friend Ben Daglish... I can't believe he's gone. Spoke to him weeks ago and... all seemed fine. Would be at the gig I was at last month... weird weird... #c64 4-ever!

Superb work! Thanks for the opportunity to chat with you.
There's a staggering amount of content here. The interviews take me back to the days of reading Zzap and C&VG.
Definitely worth waiting for.

Some really nice interviews and other content. I don’t know who wrote the world of demos, but that one was not in pair with the rest of the mag. I would love to have someone that knows about C64 demos write that one, instead of someone that is describing and guessing what he sees on the screen. But other than that: go go go! Especially Grip’s and Jazzcat’s parts were good. The List with meat on the bones. Yum!

Great as always and I feel honored to my interview in there (although it was done a while ago as programming on L'Abbaye Des Morts changed from Wanax to Antonio Savona since then lol).

Excellent disk mag as always, packed to the gills with good stuff.

Nice work, some really good content here. Facet’s interview, the Genesis Project news, pics, reviews, etc, are all brilliant. And some stuff from other groups too of course ;-)

The only negative I have is that some of the content could’ve benefited from some more editing.

Splendid. Massive content. I agree that splitting it into 2 issues a year would make it more relevant.
