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!

There's no real criteria for explaining how the Top 10 Games were ordered the way they were, or who was responsible for picking them in the first place. A letter column in the first issue? Well, all the reader response comes from the original EGM '89 Buyer's Guide, which is kind of like their Issue 0. One lucky winner in EGM's Great Game Giveaway contest takes home more than 50 NES games. Tecmo Bowl blows John Elway's Quarterback off the field, as it should. The TAXAN Videodiction newsletter is formatted to look like an article from the magazine, though it's completely a production of TAXAN's in-house ad team. Sneaky, sneaky, guys... This early in the game, EGM's juggling both console and home computer software. They'll cut the home software aspect to go console-only before too long. A subscription to EGM runs $19.95 for 12 issues, according to this issue's subscription ad. The Konix Slipstream (later renamed the Konix Multisystem) was cancelled after the company ran out of money. EGM editor Donn Nauert sure gets around...he has high scores submitted to the APA across multiple platforms from multiple cities in Texas and California.

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?
