This time we jump back in time a little.
The Official Sega Saturn Magazine is an all-time favourite of many people,
yet it missed the actual Sega Saturn launch by 6 months.
The reason being that at the time the system launched,
the magazine was still called the Official Sega Magazine instead.
So we wanted to jump to the Sega Saturn launch and since going through 15 more issues of OSM
would take a long time, we jump around a bit.
As always we select a couple of features to preview the magazine before you download the full release.
We start off with two of the finest racing games ever created: Sega Rally for the arcade
and Daytona USA on the Sega Saturn.
We also take a look at Theme Park on the Mega Drive
and the little known racer for the 32X: BC Racers.

Thank you for letting me know about the missing magazine.
I've just re-upped all 3 versions so you should be able to grab the ones you like. Smiley

It was really fun working on this upcoming magazine.
Glad to see so many familiar faces in there as well, even Ed Lomas and Tom Guise who would end up making CVG with Paul Davies such a brilliant magazine in the years to come.
I've already stared working on issue 18 as well and it's going quite nice.
I'm finding it a little difficult to find time to do much work on magazines as of late with all the work needing to be done in and around the house to get it all ready for winter, so the releases are going to be a little slow for a bit.

Then again, I'm confident it'll be worth it in the end. Smiley

Just a little teaser of what's coming up next weekend.

The Official Sega Saturn Magazine is one of the favourite magazines of many people, but one thing it missed out on was the actual Saturn launch period by about 6 months.

So I decided to go back to the early coverage and the month it launched in Europe to see all the great (and not so great) launch titles as well as get a feel of the excitement for one of my favourite home system of all time.

So next week, you can expect to be reading the following issue. Wink

For the second week in a row we focus on a re-release of a back issue of Official Sega Saturn Magazine.
As always, this is the definite version of this magazine.
The colours should be spot on with this release as well as the attention to detail
when it comes to cleaning up marks of old age has been raised even more compared to the old version.
Our first preview is for a fan favourite racing game that sadly never left the arcades: Scud Race.
We then take another in-depth look at Fighters Megamix
as well as the newly converted arcade racer Manx TT Superbike.
And for the final preview of this issue we look at Hexen by Probe Entertainment.

We are back with a newly remastered version of issue number 18 of the Official Sega Saturn Magazine.
As always, this issue has been re-edited to look even better than before,
including new colour settings which put it much closer to the original physical magazine
compared to the previous release. We start off with a look at Elevator Action Returns on the Saturn,
which sadly never left Japan. From here we move on to a feature on Manx TT,
as well as a big feature on Mass Destruction. Our final feature is for the somewhat obscure
 arcade fighting game by Capcom: Red Earth. But that is not all! We also have a look at not one,
 but two interviews in this issue. The first one is with Lobotomy Software about Duke Nukem 3D
and the second one talks with Tetsuya Mizuguchi about Sega Touring Car Challenge.

Yeah it's such a huge difference from the place that I used to live. That was a true hellhole while it's so peaceful out here.
Really needed the peace and quiet as I was not doing well and started having all kinds of medical issues due to stress alone. It was all just too much after so many years of abuse and living amongst horrible people.

I'm really starting to enjoy life again since I've moved here. And you'll probably understand why I have fewer time to work on magazines.
Besides the 45 minute bike ride to work every day, the garden and home need a lot of work to keep everything in order.
Just this week alone I've taken a week vacation so I would be able to trim all the hedges, trees and bushes to get everything ready for the wintertime.

The little guy seems to be doing great too btw.
I left his cage open yesterday evening so that when he woke up he could finally join the other hedgehogs after getting accustomed to them over the weekend.
Just an hour ago, around 12PM I saw him again as he came back to eat. Smiley
Watched him for a while as he ate and drank and then slowly waggled his way underneath the bushes in the same direction where the others always go. So I think he'll be right at home, which is quite the relief.

You never know if things will work out or not, and it certainly was going through my mind constantly the last couple of days if I did the right thing or not.
Seems like everything is working out perfectly. Smiley

Wow, those animals are regular visitors by the sounds of it and who can blame them. That garden looks great, so peaceful and relaxing.

I picked up this little guy on my way home from work last night.

[

Each day I drive to and from home to work on my bicycle on this small road:



There's very few cars that drive on there but still enough to see a handful of bunny's being flattened on a weekly basis. Sad
So last night as I was driving home in the pitch dark, I notice this little black ball down on the road.
I step of to pick up this tiny hedgehog and am about to put him in the grass on the side of the road as I notice a car coming up in the distance. I also notice how small this little guy is and wonder if he's big enough to get through the winter like this.
So I decided to take him home.

Now don't panic. I'm not trying to keep him as a pet or anything.
I have a family of at least 4 hedgehogs living in my garden which I've been feeding for a couple of months now as you're only supposed to do this before and after the summer.
I put him in a carrying cage for cats for the night, gave him water and some dry cat food and he's been eating nicely.
I noticed this morning that he has his stool is quite soft, so I'm going to keep him a couple more days until he's healthy enough te release. If it doesn't improve I'll call animal rescue.
Right now I put him outside in the garden underneath an overhang, so that when it rains, he remains dry. Got him some dry leaves as well so he can curl up and sleep during the day.
I'm hoping that tonight, when the others come to feed, they notice him/her and check her out, get familiar and hopefully adopt her into the group by the time I'm able to release her.
Really crossing my fingers that all this goes right for the little one.

I now live in the countryside, so that's certainly a plus.
Got all kinds of critters here in the garden, from frogs, mice, all kinds of birds (up to 50 at once during breeding time) and a bunch of Koi's. Sometimes even ducks and a rabbit or two and even a falcon. Smiley



One day later the little guy is doing very well. He's been eating a ton and best of all, the other hedgehogs have all come to check him out last night. Smiley
I put their food next to his cage instead of in the usual spot and thus, they were able to get accustomed to each other.
Gonna see if his droppings normalise and if all goes well, I'll be able to release him tomorrow night. Crossing fingers.



And a little videoclip as well. Wink

This week we are proud to present you with the re-release of the second issue of the Official Sega Magazine.
The precursor to the Official Sega Saturn Magazine.
In the not so distant future we'll be taking a jump in this magazine's past
and look at the very first coverage of the Sega Saturn, starting with issue 17.
But for now, let's look back at the height of the Mega Drive's populatity with this particular issue.
We begin with a look at the feature for Castlevania Bloodlines, followed by one for Sonic 3.
Then we have a look at the Sega Multi-Mega/CDX.
And finally we look at reviews for both WWF Rage in the Cage and Castlevania Bloodlines.
