This is fantastic... I am dying to pick up these games immediately. Like play through the whole issue. Wow. Those ads are so perfect, words can not describe it.

This is so awesome. Thanks for scanning these. I swear, I wish Steve Harris would sell a digital copy of every back issue of EGM. That would be amazing.

Holy crap, who was in charge of image placement back then?

Contents page, an Astayanax picture instead of the Supergrafx or Battle Ace. Golden Axe and Space Harrier images swapped on page 16. Simon's Quest town image used for Castelvania on the review on page 41. Solar Striker image used for Phalanx plus bonus typo on page 45. Second bottom image flipped backwards on the Curse preview on page 62, though that never made it to the US.

Also, what's up with the Bimmy and Jimmy makeout about to happen? :shock:

Fun stuff though, reading old magazines.

I read an article last year I think about how that contest was a huge scam. I can't seem to find it now though.
