Jeff Westermann of Sacramento, CA wrote in to complain about the lack of Atari 2600 coverage despite there being more 2600 units out there than anything else. This is the 2019 equivalent of someone complaining to Game Informer that they waste too much time on PlayStation 4 stuff when the PlayStation 2 was the best-selling home console of all time. At some point, Jeff, you gotta move on. Happ Control's Professional Control Pad looks like a straight rip-off of Sega's original 3-button Genesis controller, right down to the design of the D-Pad, its black colour scheme, angled button arrangement, and arched design. Sunsoft's design for their Fester's Quest ad gets recycled for other games as well, with only the image on the TV screen and the ad copy changed. It's still the same kid clutching his NES controller, staring into the television. Speaking of rip-offs, TAXAN pillaged their alien artwork from the xenomorphs of "Alien" and "Aliens". It wasn't enough for "The Adventures of GamePro" to rip off The Last Starfighter last issue; now they have to rip off TRON as well. "Wild Boys" was an unreleased game by Bandai. Back in 2015, a test copy of it was found on eBay...having already been gutted to serve as a test cart for Kickle Cubicle. The ProViews of Alex Kidd in High Tech World and Reggie Jackson Baseball are in the Nintendo section for some reason. GamePro just cannot make up their minds about subscription prices: now we're up to $19.97 for twelve issues. What happened to people who paid $13.97 for their subscriptions just two months back? International subscribers need to tack an extra $10 on to that price now, instead of the $5 bump charged two months ago. Greg Fischbach of Acclaim (a company noted for publishing a crap-ton of awful licensed games) has this to say about the company's approach to licensed software: "If the consumer thinks that you've deceived him by using [a] popular license such as Rambo or Wrestlemania, and then haven't been able to follow through with a product that's on it--you only get one chance to do that. [...] Licenses can't just be used willy-nilly." And yet... GamePro mixed up "Taito Software, Inc." with "Taito of America" last issue. Oops!

Of course Tifa won "Hottest Game Babe". Strangely enough, Lara Croft wasn't the runner-up on this one, but Laura Lewis from Enemy Zero on the Saturn was. Clearly nobody on staff was comfortable picking a hot dude for their 'best hunk' category, as their runner-up is Abe from Abe's Oddyssee. Umm...Duke Nukem, anybody? Anyone else find it ironic that the magazine which has had Lara Croft on their cover more times than anybody else is also throwing a "Most Overexposed" award No surprise, the PlayStation and Game Boy come out the clear winners in the battle royale, while the Sega Saturn and Genesis bring up the rear. Both the Miyamoto biography and behind-the-scenes look at controller creation are fascinating pieces which remain relevant even today. The super game list doesn't list everything the magazine ever reviewed. They omit plenty of software from the smaller systems like the CD-i and the Neo Geo, and ignore everything prior to the 16-bit generation, but still...this is one incredible index with some great artwork thrown in throughout, and some little side-bars about titles worth a second look, and miniature essays on subjects like why Link's Awakening is the best Zelda game. Really cool! Saturn Bomberman supports up to 10 players simultaneously. 'Best Tricks of the Year' includes a massive sidebar detailing ten great internet sites to use for finding cheat codes. Needless to say, they're all defunct at this point. Man, remember Happy Puppy? People are still trying to find that Lara Croft nude code. EGM2 did it as an April Fools joke in issue 34. Somebody forgot to label the cheat codes for Command & Conquer and Crusader: No Remorse in the Saturn section. This makes it look like Bug Too! is an absolutely insane game. According to a sidebar, the Konami Code is the most-overused cheat code of all time.

Winners of the Excellent Nintendo Sweepstakes take home a full compliment of Activision-published NES carts: The Three Stooges, Stealth ATF., Predator, Ghostbusters, and Super Pitfall. Apparently losing this contest was the only way to win it. The incorrect passwords for The Goonies II and Metroid which were printed last issue are corrected in this one. The editor promises more Sega "coveage" in a response to letters requesting it. Proofreaders? We don't need no stinkin' proofreaders... Last issue, a subscription to GamePro cost $19 per year, a savings of roughly 10% off the $3.50 cover price. If you bought in at that price, you're a sucker because in this issue, a subscription only costs $13.97 per year, while the cover price has gone up to $3.95. Looks like that sweet ad revenue is flowing in! "The Adventures of GamePro"'s conceit basically rips off 1984's The Last Starfighter, right down to the video game mastering protagonist being named 'Alex' in both. Who's bright idea was it to run the screenshot of the Metroid password in S.W.A.T. right across the gutter fold?

Er...why not just stand on the left side of the screen and, you know, shoot them? Lots of spelling/grammar errors in the Gauntlet entry ('know' instead of 'now', 'them' instead of 'then', etc...). No mention of the fact you have to beat Ghosts 'N' Goblins twice, guys? For shame... The editors also seem to have trouble differentiating between 'loose' and 'lose'. The screenshot for Legend of Kage where it claims Kage has been killed by alerted guards is actually a shot of him reading the Scroll item, which results in a torrential rain of dead enemies.
