(EG receives a graphical overhaul this issue (new interior look with new logo designs, minor department title changes, etc). The editorial content, however, largely remains the same. The magazine's game review sections now include running sidebars with each and every review, and this issue includes the first appearance of JJ Barrel's 'Whispers from Pavilion X' sidebar (think EGM's Quartermann).)

While sitting here, scribing the March issue of EG, thoughts of spring come to mind. March will of course herald the coming of the season of life. Trees will don new mantals of leaves, flowers will bloom and the birds will return from their winter vacations. And while I consider those happy thoughts, the thermometer outside reads -22. Somebody wake me in June.
