EGM # 8 Scanned! (MARCH 1990)

by hashiriya1 Mon Mar 29, 2010 8:34 pm

Edit: RegionFree (Reddit) 10/28/2013



My parents asked me to clear my old stuff from their garage. As I was doing so,
I found a huge box of at least 50 old EGMs. The oldest of the bunch was this issue.
It's #8 from March 1990. It's surprisingly in decent shape with minor damage.
Anyway, I brought it into work and thought I'd scan some pages for you guys.
I am too lazy to scan the whole thing, so I scanned some articles, ads, etc.
The ads are funny and did not age well at all, same goes for the whole layout.
You can probably tell I suck at using a scanner (bad cropping, etc).
In the reviews section, they mixed up Golden Axe with Space Harrier!!
Master System Golden Axe was rated better than the Genesis version!

The small ad on page 82 (Funco) shows the humble beginnings of FuncoLand,
which was swallowed up by GameStop.

Turbo Grafx 16 VS Genesis....Well, we all know who won that war.
The Super Nintendo wasn't even in the picture yet.

Anyway, the last pic is the back cover... enjoy!

This issue is amazing! It has an ad for Mega Man 2 and an article for Castlevania: The Advienture! RIP EGM!

Aw, they totally panned dynamite dux. Oh well.

I still wish it was 1990 again. Would playing genesis games over a phoneline even be something that people would want?

Many thanks for doing this. It is greatly appreciated.

Although I never subscribed to EGM, the format/ads reminded me of other magazines that I read around that time. Such a great piece of history.
