Notable Stuff:

  • Tips & Tricks goes from being a quarterly publication to a subscription-ready standard magazine starting with this issue.
  • Know what sells magazines in the mid-90's? Fighting games. Mortal Kombat II gets its third cover feature with this issue.
  • T&T has teamed up with Video Games magazine to offer some guides for great games. Many of these are written by Zach Meston, one of the premiere gaming strategists and guide-mongers of the decade.
  • The Readers' Tips section includes a huge list of hidden games within games. If you want more bang for your buck, try tracking some of these guys down.
  • Is it censorship? T&T runs a black bar over the boob joke sprite in Panic! (SCD) when it's enlarged for the title page, but leaves the actual game screen showing it on the bottom of page 26 un-retouched.
  • The Alien vs. Predator guide is top-notch, explaining game mechanics, offering little hints for survival, providing a suggested order of attack for the Marine scenario, disclosing the location of all the weapons, and printing basic maps for every level, sub-level and airduct in the game. No matter which faction you favour, this guide is insanely useful.
  • That Way of the Warrior guide did more to make that game attractive than anything else we've ever seen. While the game itself is nothing special, and certainly no Mortal Kombat killer, it's very enticing with its behind-the-scenes look at development, the stories behind the actors portraying all the characters, and other goodies. Pity the game's not as good as T&T makes it look.
