  • Over the Edge
    Say goodbye to this issue and see what delights Edge 2 has in store for you next month.


  • Techview: multimedia
    It is universally acknowledged that Trip Hawkins is a smart guy. So smart, in fact, that EA were years late getting into the console market and nearly went broke because their boss, one Trip Hawkins, dismissed consoles as a passing fad... And this is the guy who's selling 3DO? Edge asks: what the hell does Trip Hawkins think he's playing at?
  • Techview: CD-ROM
    Following in the wake of The 7th Guest comes Microcosm - the first real CD-ROM shoot 'em up. The tech-specs read like science fiction: 44,000 frames of rendered 3D, a six-minute intro, over 478 megabytes of game... See how the men at Psygnosis squeezed an entire human body onto one small silver disc.
  • Futureview
    What is the future of videogaming? What of CD-ROM, direct-cabling and virtual reality? Edge speaks to leading lights in industries of imagination: visions of the future, from the men who are busy shaping it.
  • Prescreen
    Edge examines more than 20 of the better games you'll be playing over the coming months, including Inferno (left), Jurassic Park, Forgotten Castle and some ancient 8-bit game called Impossible Mission.
  • Competition
    There's only one thing better than owning state of the art gamesplaying technology... and that's owning state of the art gamesplaying technology that didn't cost you a penny. There's a grand's worth of kit destined for one Edge reader. Do you feel lucky?
