Noteworthy Stuff:

  • The GamePro editor pseudonyms haven't made their appearance yet, so most articles are credited to either a series of initials or the writer's full name; the exceptions are Andromeda and The Eliminator, but neither have cartoon icons.
  • The game reviews aren't scored on the GamePro 0.5 - 5.0 rating scale yet either, but the reviews read more like ad copy previews than actual pros and cons so the rating system wouldn't really help. The Pros seem to love everything that came across their desks this month.
