Miscellaneous Game Posters

These posters are stragglers from the magazines I’ve scanned and disposed of. I don’t particularly care for them, but since they are also a part of video game history, I’m putting them here for the record.

First, a Sega Genesis X-Men poster from April 1993’s issue of EGM:

Sega Genesis X-Men Special Edition Poster, EGM April 1993
A colorful poster for your wall. The Genesis logo looks pretty cool.
Sega Genesis X-Men Special Edition Poster Strategy Guide, EGM April 1993
And on the back, a mini strategy guide for a few levels in the game.

Also for the record, I’d like to point out that the red “Dracula” text on the cover of this issue was a shiny foil material that the scanner couldn’t capture.

Next, a Sunsoft Looney Tunes poster from the December 1993 issue of EGM:

I could see this poster being on the door of 1990s teenager.
Sunsoft Looney Tunes Lineup, EGM December 1993
Sunsoft’s Nintendo lineup for 1993

And lastly, an Illusion of Gaia promotional flyer and coupon from the October 1994 issue of Video Games (I remember this issue arriving in a plastic bag, with this flyer alongside):

Illusion of Gaia Folded Flyer with 3D Effect, 1994
When folded, there is a sort of 3D multi-layer effect.

Unfolded, we see the many wonders of the ancient world.

And on the back, an introduction to Illusion of Gaia, along with a $10 coupon.

It’s been a few months and the magazine-scan finish line is finally within reach, all these magazines that I’ve kept all these years, gone from my bookshelf and converted to PDF. Next up will be the difficult task of figuring out what to do with all my consoles and games. As always, I hope you’ve enjoyed this trip down memory lane.
