Players' Guide to Baseball

America's favorite pastime has stolen a lot of time on game screens everywhere. EG tallys up the runs, hits, and errors for the many action and statistics baseball games available on video and computer formats. (a collection of related articles; some article titles surmised:)

EG Interview

What is it like to create a famous prince? EG caught up with Jordan Mechner, the royal blood behind the Prince of Persia series. Jordan tells us about his hard work and how his extensive use of film and video helped to create these unique titles. ('EG Interview: Meet Jordan Mechner, The Real Prince of Persia' by Russ Ceccola)

Game Sounds

Everyone enjoys good sound in their games. Even non-gamers are familiar with the famous tunes from the early Nintendo classics. We get the inside information on creating and using advanced sound techniques from Tom Tallarico, musical genius from Virgin Software. ('Game Sounds: Making Your Video Games Scream!' by Bill Kunkel; includes 'The Best Games We've Ever Heard' and 'QSound - 3D for Your Ears' sidebars)

Hershey Arcade

Almost everyone has enjoyed the taste of Hershey's chocolate. Now, gamers can try their hand at video and pinball games in Hershey's own arcade! ('Chocolate Flavored Gaming - A Visit to Hershey Park' by Russ Ceccola; includes 'Top 12 at Hershey Park in 1992 season' sidebar)

The guys from Street Fighter dropped by the EG offices last week, and we got together for a little baseball. The winner was the blue team, but only because Blanka ate all the bases, two editors, and a Buick. And please don't write asking about the Street Fighter baseball game! There isn't one.
