Here’s the November 1992 issue of Video Games & Computer Entertainment. I once again skipped a month, but unlike August I actually do have the October issue. It’s the only VG&CE I ever received in an envelope, with a cover featuring a single Sonic the Hedgehog 2 hologram on a black background: a collector’s edition. Since the hologram probably won’t scan, I don’t know if I want to take apart this magazine to scan it. As I’ve been going through and destroying each of my magazines one by one, it’s occurred to me that I should keep just one as a memento. As nice as it is to browse these mags on my tablet, there’s still something to be said for having the actual article. We’ll see how it goes…
This issue has a number of goodies. There’s an introduction to Spectrum Holobyte and the new Star Trek game they’re making (I believe this eventually became “A Final Unity”, released a couple of years later). There’s talk of the cancellation of the SNES CD-ROM, which of course we now know led to the birth of the Sony PlayStation. There are also a number of highly rated games on both PC and console, some of which I’ve never played and will be looking into in the coming days. Lastly, I noticed an interesting observation in one of the answers to a letter: “Besides, most people would say you’re defeating the purpose by using a portable game system in your living room.” Nearly 25 years later, we have the Nintendo Switch, and don’t forget the TV cables that were available for the Sony PSP.
