Thanks a ton for this! I hope all the issues of Mega Play get upped eventually - I remember being so happy when I saw a new Mega Play on the magazine shelves of my local store :)

As the file description says, this isn't a new scan but is simply pages 35-56 of Electronic Gaming Monthly Issue 6, which has been available here for some time.  It was extracted and given a separate release here for the benefit of anyone only interested in Sega coverage or anyone interested in seeing what might be considered the prototype for Mega Play magazine, which launched 10 months later.

Another beautiful scan. Thanks so much E-Day! The cover is absolutely gorgeous. I hope some day emulator filters can capture a tenth of how great crts with burning phosphors looked. Thank you!

To be clear, this wasn't scanned by E-Day.  It's an excerpt from the Electronic Gaming Monthly Issue 6 scan.  Unfortunately, no one is credited with that scan, so it's hard to say who actually scanned it.  I wasn't around at the time, but from what I understand, years ago during a software upgrade, all data on who had scanned what was lost.  While some of those credits have been restored, others have not (such as EGM #6). 

If anyone does know who scanned this issue, please let us know and we can restore the scanning/editing credits.
