I've been watching My Life In Gaming for a couple of years now.  The channel features an impressive level of retro-gaming expertise and fantastic production values.  Definitely recommended.  Glad to see they support RetroMags' preservation mission as well!

Originally Coury lent this issue to Chris from Classic Gaming Quarterly for a read through video. I had lent Chris the GamePro Celebrity Gamer magazine for the same reason. When I found out he had this issue I asked him if he could ask Coury if I could borrow it to scan. Coury agreed without ever speaking to me or even knowing who exactly it was going to. 

Looks like we have a reputation of being trustworthy! I think I scanned it in one night and had it in the mail back to him within a couple of weeks from getting it.

Fantastic release, thanks E-Day and Coury. It took me a moment to realize this was the precursor to EGM. One can see a lot of the same elements that would eventually make their way into EGM.

I chuckled when they were talking about playing the Japanese version of SMB 2 and how it would change 'slightly' for its U.S. debut. Talk about understatement of the year lol.
