retro pc games magazines

Recommended Posts

Hi,

First time user to forum sites.

The reason i joined is because i have to old magazines and cant find anything about them (googled no results).

they are UK magazines from 1994 and are:

1) pc games issue 1 june/july 1994 - according to the welcome note inside it says ' a few months ago a magazine appeared called WHAT PC GAMES, it was only intended to be a one off special, but so positive was the response that the powers that be decided to do it again on a bi monthly basis, the result is this magazine

2) pc power issue 7 july 94

Just wondered if anyone had heard of them, or if pc games made any more after issue 1 (heard of pc gamer)

many thanks

weegan

I'm pretty sure PC Games went for more than 13 issues because I subscribed for several years. The last issue was sometime around 1998 because after that my subscription was converted into PC Gamer, which I received for about a year.

I have issue 01 of What PC Games which was released Winter 1993/1994. UK mag ... this issue has Rebel Assault on the front cover with reviews of Subwar 2050, CyberRace, Microcosm and more.

Looks like I have the premiere issue of the mag you guys are referring to ... in mint condition too. :lol:

That's interesting to know because i've only ever seen the first 13 issues on eBay. The issue 13 i'm looking at now declares that they were going to miss a month and come back with a new exciting look. To be honest I just assumed they never did (Future promised the same with Arcade magazine and that never came back!). You say your subscription converted to PC Gamer, I assume that means that Future Publishing took it over at some point then, as it was an EMAP magazine.

I think I was mistaken. I didn't realize this was for the UK version. I was referring to the US version.
