Notable Stuff:

  • GI's online as of this issue. On AOL, they're keyword GmeInfrmer and on CompuServe, they're 74431,1611. Easy to remember, right?
  • Ross, the name of the game is Toughman Contest, not "Toughman Challenge". You're a reviewer and you can't even get the name of the game right? That scores a 1.5 / 10 in our book.
  • Andy, Ross and Paul all compare Metal Warriors to Cybernator in their opening sentences. Favourably.
  • Divided opinions on Ogre Battle, with scores of 6.25 (Rick), 8.75 (Paul), and 5 (Andy).
  • Atari had exactly zero good one-on-one fighting games for the Jaguar, despite Ultra Vortek showing promise.
  • You want a copy of Behind the Scenes at Sega, the book that details how Sega makes video games? Should have paid the $14.95 when it came out. It'll set you back nearly $50 today.
