Notable Stuff:

  • This issue has more game previews than you can shake a stick at. Look at that list!
  • Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately, given the way most game-to-film adaptations wind up sucking) we never saw a Duke Nukem film.
  • The game referred to in "Next Month" as 'what is sure to be one of the PlayStation's biggest games' is probably Quake II; the next issue features a massive feature article on the PlayStation version of the PC giant.
