It's a little surprising to me that it managed to last as long as it did, considering for a dollar more you could get EGM which was always 3-4 times as many pages (though granted not 100% about the SNES.)

I also wonder which of the EGM review crew was slumming it in this mag as "Guy, Dude, and Sam Rye," or if those are just place-holder names for whichever random people around the office could be wrangled into writing up a quick review that month.

If you look at the masthead, it's pretty much all the same contributors as EGM.

 

If our database is accurate, there were 14 issues, and when I am done scanning we will be missing four of those.

I'm aware of that, but what I was wondering about is, who is behind the stupid GamePro-like names in the review section?  The EGM review crew was always harping on about how their reviews could be trusted because they didn't hide behind fake names, and yet here they are with "Guy, Dude, and Sam Rye."

I don't remember Guy, Dude or Sam Rye being names, monikers or rogues for anything nefarious.  The staff of EGM was assembled to best serve the tastes of gamers from Sports, RPG, Fighting, Puzzle, Sega or anything else.

 

This buyer's guide on the other hand was not useful at all to me.

 

:huh:

I'm not sure I parse your syntax.

 

But if anybody has information on who these guys really were, I'd love to hear it.
