  • A special two-page pull-out tip sleeve is bound between pages 82 and 83, covering Gex 2: Enter the Gecko and Monster Rancher.
  • Someone forgot to add the description for the Healing Staff item in the Final Fantasy Tactics guide. Everything else has the on-screen text included, except this one, which simply reads, "Need to look up description." Whoops!
  • The "Chibi's Terms" section of Nihon Game Otaku is still useful for players today.
  • PSM's "Otaku Game of the Month" goes to Clock Tower: Ghosthead. Oh dear...
