Game Players Issue 68

ISSUE: 68Content

Editorial:

-Editor Mark Higham makes note of how in the previous year (1994), with games like Mortal Kombat II, blood and gore in video games was a hot topic; but now (1995), games are filled with even more of the stuff, and the controversy has all but disappeared.
-Higham mentions that this is his last issue. Starting next month, Chris Slate takes over as Editor.

Back Talk

-Mark Higham bids farewell
-What's coming in future issues

* Text chat was possible with this device, and the writer reminds potential users to mind their manners: "Don't call other players losers or cheaters. Be a good sport!" Ah, some things never change.

**Ludrigan reminds readers that he can be reached by email, and gives his address. Pretty cutting edge in 95'? Maybe slightly crazy, too?
