(This is the first issue of VG&CE following the Katz/Kunkel/Worley departure to reboot Electronic Games. You'll notice some changes, though nothing extremely earth-shattering. You'll find more expo/preview coverage in lieu of the more traditional survey articles, the Game Doctor's Q&A column has been replaced by a less flamboyant, uncredited "Q&A" section, the news has been compiled by David Moskowitz, and "Inside Gaming" has apparently evolved into a guest insider voicebox column.)
