This week we take a look at issue 169 of CVG which came out in December of 1995.
We originally released this issue all the way back in 2009, and after a ton of work being done on it recently,
this issue is looking better than ever before.
This is the second Computer and Video Games issue in the capable hands of Paul Davies.
This issue we see Tom Guise, Ed Lomas and Jaime Smith join the magazine and you will soon start to witness
how they take CVG to a whole new level.
The preview articles that we've selected are: reviews of Twisted Metal, Viewpoint and Worms on the PSone front.
And a review for Super Skidmarks on the Mega Drive.

This week we take a look back at the remaster of Club Nintendo Volume 1, Issue 4.
While the magazine might be tiny and weighs in at only 20 pages total,
it sure holds a lot of nostalgia for the people who used to get it in their mailbox straight from Nintendo back in 1989.
Since it's such a small issue we only have two preview articles up on the site.
The first one being Section Z by Capcom and the second one is Ikari Warriors by SNK.
Both games are for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Thanks for posting this! Smiley

Your tinypic image isn't working though. I tend to use imagur for hosting pictures.

Sadly I didn't get to read Mean Machines back in the day. The only magazine I had back then was the free Club Nintendo Magazine which was later on followed up by Nintendo Player here.

It was only in early 1993 that I came across a magazine called Joypad in a small specialist game shop where I played the Neo Geo AES for the first time. I still remember that like it was yesterday. Last Resort blew my mind back then. Smiley
Only later on found out about Mean Machines and was surprised to find a magazine with a very familiar feel to Joypad.

I only wish Joypad was in English instead of French so that more people would be able to enjoy it...
My French isn't very good at this point either, yet I'm still thinking of digging out my old copies and scanning them one day.

Admittedly I mostly read MMS, but the original was also awesome for its time. Outside "official" game publications, MM and Gamesmaster were my favourites, and CVG a close third.

This week we stay with the Official Sega Saturn Magazine,
but jump back in time a year and a half from last time to issue 3 that came out in january of 1997.
This remastered edition was originally scanned in 2011 and has this past couple of months
gone through a meticulous process to fix tons of little lingering issues as well as
a couple of bigger ones that have been stamped out with this edition.
There is a ton of great content in this issue so let's get started.
First up we have the arcade version of Manx TT,
followed by features for Mystaria, Guardian Heroes and Sega Rally. All for the Sega Saturn.
On top of this, we also have several Saturn reviews ligned up: Sega Rally, Galactic Attack, Virtua Racing and Worms.

This time we return with a brand new issue of the Official Sega Saturn Magazine.
This is the July 1997 issue and features tons of great content.
We begin our preview of this issue with two big interviews: AM#3's Akinubu Abe talks about Last Bronx
and Hisao Oguchi & Kenji Kanno from AM#3 talk about Top Skater for the arcade.
From here we look at a bunch of features and previews for upcoming games: Marvel Super Heroes
as well as Resident Evil by Capcom, Sonic Jam on the Saturn and The House of the Dead in the arcades.
And finally WipEout 2097, again for the Sega Saturn.

I just got back into the Saturn and Dreamcast in a big way thanks to being home sick for 3 weeks and having tons of time to spare.
So that kinda reinvigorated my spirit to work on a bunch of magazines.
Releases will remain rather slow due to the ridiculous attention of details I keep pushing upon myself, but hey. Wink

Got a nice package in the mail yesterday thanks to my favourite importshop for the past 16 years now, Videogameimports.com





It's going to be a nice vacation this upcoming week. Cheesy

And here's the update:


This time we return to NGamer with issue 5 that was released in January of 2007.
We start of our review selection with Gotlieb Pinball Classics by FarSight Studios
which would later on develop the high-end arcade simulator: The Pinball Arcade,
which digitally recreates a ton of classic pinball tables.
The review for The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess comes at a time where we see Nintendo
reinventing the franchise once again with the gorgeous entry: Breath of the Wild.
Rayman Raving Rabbits sure was a fun diversion back then.
And Wii Sports showed us just how new play controls could really shake up classic sports games.
Besides all these Wii reviews, we also have a bunch of Nintendo DS games previewed as well:
Elite Beat Agents might not be as magical as the original Ouendan game, but it's still a ton of fun.
Gunpey Reverse is a peculiar puzzle game, and Yoshi's Island DS tried to take on the impossible challenge
of matching up to the original Super Nintendo masterpiece.
Finally we have a big feature that highlights a bunch of must have Virtual Console games: Download: Wii Recommend.

I'm still here and doing quite well actually.

I just have a bad case of burnout when it comes to working on video game magazines.
It tends to happen from time to time for a variety of reasons, but this time it got quite bad.
At this point I'm slowly starting to get my interest up again.

If I had a ton more free time, it probably wouldn't be this much of a problem either.
Although I do seem to run into a couple of problems.
Looks like my eyes are starting to give me a bit trouble as of late. Hitting 40 certainly has something to do with this I guess.
After looking at a computer screen for extended amounts of time, my eyes get really tired and even start to hurt and see double.
Having to concentrate really hard to pick up on all those small specs on pages makes this issue pop up even quicker.

Between all the work that has to be done around the house and garden, I picked up a Switch and Zelda alone certainly ate up a lot of time. Smiley Binding of Isaac as well actually.
I also picked up a couple books on Japanese and Korean cinema and directors, which made me pick up quite a few new (old) films.

I just noticed that I put up NGamer issue 5 on April 1st on Twitter but somehow forgot to finish up the index on the catalogue page and put up the news page or forum post for it! Doh!

Guess I got my work cut out for me this afternoon...
