The Arcade Brigade comic continues to not be funny. Strategy guides for not one but two Neo-Geo titles? That's gotta be some kind of record. For ease of reading, the enormous list of cheats covered under the different system tips areas are not indexed.

It was submitted by Dane Genther of Wayland, Michigan. So Tips & Tricks is publishing food reviews now via their Readers' Tips section? Okayyyyy... The Real Bout Fatal Fury Special guide is about as complete as you could want. Neo-Geo enthusiasts, you want this issue. A complete issue of this magazine comes with a Mortal Kombat Trilogy tips poster, but ours is missing. If you have it and can tell us what it shows, please edit the entry above! Where does that Super Mario Bros. manga panel on the bottom of page 53 come from? There are so many games listed in the respective Tips sections of the magazine that we've chosen not to index them at this time. It makes reading the index itself so much easier... Letter From Betty is one of the weirdest and coolest features in a gaming magazine. Betty Hallock, we love you!
  8. Features: Power Up: Letter From the Editor (Chris Bieniek announces some big changes, including subscriptions, more strategy guides, and even more tips and cheats squeezed between the covers than ever before. Ahhhh...it's a great time to be a gamer!) Readers' Tips (Letters from fans) Mortal Kombat II: Seven Pages of Killer Kodes! (New tricks, cheats and goodies for the Super NES and Genesis versions, including the infamous Fergality...bwa ha ha!) Tip Collection (Cheats, hints and tips for a huge swath of Genesis, SNES, Game Gear, Game Boy, 3DO, Arcade and CD-i games) Strategies: Panic! (Sega CD) written by Zach Meston Battletech (GEN) written by Zach Meston C2: Judgement Clay (SNES/GEN) moves list and secret characters Alien vs. Predator (JAG) written by Zach Meston Way of the Warrior (3DO) written by Zach Meston 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 sevel, 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.
  9. Features: Editorial: MORTAL KOMBAT II: Leading the Way to the Future of Fighting Games (Chris Bieniek gives a short history of MK's rise to industry prominence and dominance) Readers' Tips (Bug reports, glitches, and questions from T&T readers) The Unholy, Uncensored Tips & Tricks Guide to Mortal Kombat II Game Genie Codes Pro Action Replay Codes Arcade Tips: NBA Jam Genesis Tips: Lotus II Aero the Acrobat Virtua Racing Zool Super NES Tips: FIFA International Soccer Wolfenstein 3-D Jurassic Park The King of Dragons The Ninja Warriors X-Kaliber 2097 Aero the Acrobat SNES Strategy: The Peace Keepers 3DO/CD-i/Sega CD Strategy: Dragon's Lair Sega CD Tips: FIFA International Soccer Mortal Kombat Stellar-Fire The Terminator Jaguar Tips: Wolfenstein 3-D Dino Dudes 3DO Tips: Out of This World Notable Stuff: Before you opened this issue, you got three free tips: Mortal Kombat II and FIFA International Soccer on the SNES and Mortal Kombat II on the Game Gear. Toasty! The MA-17 code for Robocop vs. the Terminator (GEN) is one of the most ridiculously long strings of button-push entries ever required to activate a cheat: thirty different combinations of the A, B and C buttons. Hope you don't make a mistake. I wonder what Bill Vargas of Philadelphia did with the $5,000 he won for finding all the hidden letters in Jurassic Park (SNES) and deciphering the message. Bill, you out there, mate? Drop in and let us know what you did with the loot! The massive MK II feature breaks down everything from all four (SNES, GEN, GB, GG) home incarnations of the game: special moves, stage fatalities, and tips for each fighter. It's twenty-one pages long with no interrupting ads. Yeah, it's why you bought the magazine. That's a pretty violent image of Bill Heineman getting decapitated in the Out of This World (3DO) tips page.

Go into the new Tips and Tricks section that has 150 issues and start matching covers from the Gallery section Then we can copy the few records that had a synopsis filled in, from the old section to the new Then fix up the Download Manager so the dates and issue numbers are correct Finally delete 90% of the issues in the T&T OLD section rename it to T&T Codebook, and figure out the 2007-2011 records.
  18. Features: Editorial: You're Nothin' but a Dirty Cheat! (Chris Bieniek welcomes everybody to the new mag, then explains the T&T parlance, defining Tip, Trick, Easter Egg, Bug, Combo, and Boss so everybody's on the same page) Readers' Tips (Submitted tidbits of info from readers) MORTAL KOMBAT! (Mortal Monday's coming, and Chris Bieniek breaks down the differences between all the home versions.) Mortal Kombat II: More Midway Mayhem (Revision 3.0 of the MKII arcade machine brings some new changes to the game, and what's a good Arcade feature without a full move list?) Game Genie Codes Pro Action Replay Codes Genesis Tips: Battletoads/Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team Micro Machines Pink Goes Hollywood Flashback Mortal Kombat Disney's Aladdin Sunsetriders Jungle Strike Shinobi III: Return of the Ninja Master Ecco the Dolphin Genesis Strategy: General Chaos Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES/GEN) Sega CD Tips: Stellar-Fire Prize Fighter Double Switch Microcosm The Terminator Sonic CD Sega CD Strategy: Double Switch Super NES Tips: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters Super Nova Battletoads/Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team Pink Panther in Pink Goes Hollywood Battletoads in Battlemaniacs Cacoma Knight Tom & Jerry Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting WWF Royal Rumble Taz-Mania SNES Strategy: Clay Fighter (Move lists for every contender) Jaguar Strategy: Raiden Jaguar Tips: Trevor McFur in The Crescent Galaxy Jaguar Hardware NES Tips: Battletoads/Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team Batman Returns Game Boy Tips: Mortal Kombat Raging Fighter Game Gear Tips: Super Monaco GP II Lemmings Tengen World Cup Soccer Notable Stuff: Tips & Tricks loves to put Mortal Kombat II on their covers, don't they? And why not; MK II sold mags like mad back in the day. According to Jow Sislow of Jaleco, Warren Robinett (designer of Adventure on the 2600) researches VR at UNC Chapel Hill! How cool! This issue breaks Sonic CD (SCD) wide open, with every strategy and cheat code you could possibly want for one of the best games on the Sega CD system. That Double Switch (SCD) walkthrough is the most comprehensive you'll find outside of GameFAQs. The Game Boy version of Mortal Kombat is the only home translation that let you play as Goro, as the Game Boy Tips section described in this issue.
  19. And now we have GameSetWatch showing the 150th issue, but claiming it to be the next to last. I don't think this is correct, if someone can find me a Tips and Tricks 151 September 2007 let me know! http://www.gamesetwatch.com/2007/07/column_game_mag_weaseling_mag_25.php Ok went to his next month of posts and found this entry.....so what most likely happened is someone counted the codebooks as a continuation o Tips and Tricks. Need more coffee after all this hunting around the web
  20. Which brings me to my next question, were did we get 167 issues from? Was it the Magweasel information? I found this article that says 150 issues. http://gamelosers.net/blog/2014/07/23/tips-tricks/ Edit: Going back to the Wayback Machine shows that Magweasel never had a T&T page set up. I found this via Watback, from our old Wiki... https://web.archive.org/web/20100508053419/http://www.retromags.net:80/wiki/Tips_%26_Tricks
  21. This has been on my list for far too long Anyhow I put together a list of dates, so far stuff is falling in line, just need to work the 149-167 side of this publication and I will be able to fix everything up. Items on this spreadsheet have sources, as long as information between two sources fall in line, I assume it is correct. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1prIRQqiTADLid2CcPkmExXkRWf7cEhDbBzwHkHz1Z4g/edit?usp=sharing
  22. You have all the physical copies up to issue 145? If so then you would need 146-285. The Magazine Database has all the issues listed with their dates.
