An early post today since I’ve been lazy with scanning. I’m getting very close to the end of my rope with all this “preserving”. It’s been many months since I’ve decided to throw out my old things in an effort to let go of the past, and it feels like I’m not actually letting go of the past if I’m still saving everything, albeit in digital form. That said, I try to post and scan only magazines that I haven’t seen available online, as a way to give back to the internet for providing me with all the other scans. And now, here is the March 1994 issue of Video Games.
This is another damaged copy, with the centerfold pages 46 to 51 missing. The staples looked pretty clean so I wonder if the page just fell out, or if it was never there in the first place. I’ve noticed a number of pull-out posters in recent issues, so it’s also possible that I pulled out the poster and don’t remember doing it. For this issue, I was less stringent with re-scanning, doing so only for the most egregious of visual artifacts. Going back and looking at some of my previous scans, I find that as much as I had thought I paid attention, there are still quite a few vertical lines on various pages. If they’re going to be there anyway, then I’m not going to try so hard. Also, as I’ve previously mentioned, Video Games isn’t exactly my favorite magazine, so I’m fine with it having some blemishes.
In this issue we have coverage on infuriating political spin on how video games cause violence. The less I say about that, the better I feel. Hope you enjoy the rest of the magazine.
