Noteworthy Stuff:

  • It took longer than he wanted, but editor Chris Slate should be happy that Ninja Gaiden, Splatterhouse, and Bionic Commando have all received new games in their respective series at this point. No word on a new Ghouls 'n' Ghosts though.
  • Sony releases a new version of the PS1 that fixes the overheating problem mentioned in 'Monitor' above.
  • Despite the rumour, Tobal No. 2 never materializes on US shores.
  • Bill Paris refers to Lara Croft as 'Laura' in his column. *sigh*
  • Once again, all three of the games reviewed in the 'Flashback' section of the reviews come off worse than they did originally.
  • Intelligent Qube, despite being hailed as one of the best puzzle games ever by gamers, squeaks out a 3.5 / 5.0. NFL GameDay '98, by contrast, pulls off a perfect 5/5. What gives?
  • There's a charter subscription offer to get PSM for $1 per issue for an entire year. What a steal!
  • Another desperate reader writes about a potential "Nude Raider" cheat for Tomb Raider. Boys, boys, boys...
