(This is the final issue of VG&CE before evolving (devolving?) into VideoGames: The Ultimate Game Magazine. Some changes start here, however. The mag has a new internal look, with the News Bits section becoming Gaming Update, the Easter Egg Hunt, Tip Sheet, and Computer Strategies sections merged to form Tips & Tricks, and Destination Arcadia becoming Arcade Watch. Also, the only 'Computer Entertainment' to be found in this issue is for the PC.)
