Maybe you guys can tell me the 2002 EGM system reviews ? :

People complained I put parts or most of this in their thread, so now I'm making it its own thread. EGM system and game reviews from 1989 to 2001. If anybody wants to add to it, please do. This is meant to be Sega related.

Anyway, one of egm best issues.

Finally you post something interesting.

Always nice to read those old video game articles... ^^

Must've taken you hours to post so many pictures with a 28k connection...

* cough *

Also, look at those SEGA CD scores drop faster than a hooker drops her pants.

Starts around 9 out of 10 in 1993, and ends with 2 out of 10 in 1996.

Bam !!!
Come, bow before your King!... Bow ya shits!...

@djvectorman - I was wondering if you had the 2nd page of that EGM article from 1989 where its talks about the Slipstream system from Konix?

I realize its not Sega related but I was always interested in that system and its cool controller system and power chair and its kinda cool to read some of the old stuff about it, shame nothing ever came of it.

Nice stuff bro. Feel free to post more of this kind of thing.
Maybe I'll even scan my July 1998 sega Saturn magazine, post it here. It's got alot of dreamcast preview coverage, as well as features on shining force 3, riven, deep fear, gungriffon 2, daytona USA 2, and the first shots of d2.

I really enjoyed reading this. I would say the most interesting trend would be how the old mainstream consoles after being replaced by their next-gen counterparts seemed to receive score boosts as if they were being rated on games that were already released and the fondness they found for the system over the years spent with it but when the new generation comes in the scores differ greatly from year to year because of the library released that same year while seemingly not taking into account games that had already been released.

It did take a while but my Saturn Netlink is 28 k, my old Laptop is 56 k. I used my old Laptop for this. I use NetZero dial up service. $10 a month. Why dial up ? I don't have much money and wireless is iffy from other apt. Everything goes through local Verizon building anyway around here. It took me 3 hours to create post 1, because I had to upload some pictures do some typing, so some pasting, bold some things and organize post exactly how I wanted it. Would you like me to prove I go on a old laptop using dial up or my netlink 28 k modem ? Not really liking your tone in this thread either but no point in arguing. Glad you found it interesting and liked reading Sega CD reviews like I did too. 32x dropped crazy too.

I realize its not Sega related but I was always interested in that system and its cool controller system and power chair and its kinda cool to read some of the old stuff about it, shame nothing ever came of it.


Sure here :

I still remember the 2000 Buyers Guide. I remember them naming "Soul Calibur" the game of the year and "Superman 64" "Biggest Loser of This Year's Awards" and "Game That Shoulda been the coolest, but was crap".

My copy sorta got warn out and didn't last very long. Which Sucks.

Funny thing is I still have the January 2000 EGM issue "Should you buy a Dreamcast? Or Wait" and the "Pokemon November 1999" issue. But both my original copy of the Dreamcast launch issue and the first "Official Sega Dreamcast Magazine" got lost. Argggh!


I also still have most of the 2000 issues of EGM.
