Notable Stuff:

  • There's only three game reviews this month. THREE .... !!! Yep ... this magazine is predominantly aimed at USA users who evidently do not have the time or inclination to play games on their beautiful Amiga's.
  • There are only 6 pages of game advertising in a 100 page issue indicating even the publishers think the market for gaming in the USA is a tough sell.
  • A software subscription to your favourite 'non-gaming' magazine will set you back $24.97 (local), $29.97 (Mexico), $44.97 (overseas surface) or $47.97 if you live north of the border (Canada)
