By kitsunebiThis mag hails from an interesting time when the PlayStation and Saturn were the new kids on the block vying for attention while Nintendo, Atari, and Panasonic were all trying to distract everyone using smoke and mirrors with their promises of their killer next-gen systems - the Ultra 64, the Jaguar II a.k.a. Midsummer, and the M2, only one of which actually went into production. Learn from history, kids. Don't believe the hype.
By kitsunebiThis particular copy was apparently given away at E3 (see the sticker on the cover). It's an interesting mag. The opening editorial claims the mag aims to appeal to adult gamers, and for the most part, I found it an interesting read that did indeed succeed in their stated goal of being better than the typical video game mag aimed at children. The only problem I had with the mag was the review section, which for some reason eschewed written reviews in favor of what was essentially a bunch of screenshots and a score. They must have gotten some negative feedback on this format, since later issues would add written commentary to the reviews. Anyway, check it out!
